God and gods. Which do you serve?

If you are a Capitalist or believe in Capitalism. If you are involved in the Green Movement, save the planet type person. If you listen to those You can be a god or happy, happy, feel good because God will give you everything you asked for and nothing really bad will ever happen to you. If you fall into any of these categories then you might want to read this. The essentials of keeping the planet clean or trading isn't bad, but the worship of these is. That being the case, they have been compromised into religions. Please pick the correct term because God does.

Matthew 6: 24No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

First though we have to know what Mammon actually is:

"Mammon is a term that was used to describe greed, avarice, and unjust worldly gain in Biblical literature. It was personified as a false god in the New Testament. The term is often used to refer to excessive materialism or greed as a negative influence. Adjectival forms are mammonish and mammonistic.[2][3]

Etymologically, the word is assumed to derive from Late Latin 'mammon', from Greek 'μαμμωνάς', Syriac 'mįmóna' (riches),[2] and was an Aramaic loan word in Hebrew meaning wealth[5] although it may also have meant 'that in which one trusts'.[6]

The Greek word for "Mammon", mamonas, occurs in the Sermon on the Mount (during the discourse on ostentation) and in the parable of the Unjust Steward (Luke 16:9-13). The Authorised Version keeps the Syriac word. John Wycliffe uses "richessis"."

   Ok, that is out of the way now. But there is yet more. To be a Christian, and I'll assume Jewish and I'll assume Muslim for the next part, since all three beliefs use the same foundation, what we as Christians call the Old Testament and Creator. We see clearly that there are a few gods that stand in many peoples way that keep us from our Creator's demands. I'll address the Christian side of it as I have little knowledge of the other two faiths.

Jeremiah 10

 1Hear ye the word which the LORD speaketh unto you, O house of Israel:

 2Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.

 3For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe.

4They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.

 Matthew 6:7But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.

As a matter of fact, the word Heathen is found 145 times throughout the KJV. So that must be an important word.

So now we need to know what a Heathen is:

Heathen is from Old English hęšen "not Christian or Jewish" (c.f. Old Norse heišinn). Historically, the term was probably influenced by Gothic haiži "dwelling on the heath", appearing as haižno in Ulfilas' bible as "gentile woman" (translating the "Hellene" in Mark 7:26). This translation was probably influenced by Latin paganus, "country dweller", or it was chosen because of its similarity to the Greek ἐθνικός ethnikos, "gentile". It has even been suggested that Gothic haiži is not related to "heath" at all, but rather a loan from Armenian hethanos, itself loaned from Greek ἔθνος ethnos.

Both "pagan" and "heathen" have historically been used as a pejorative by adherents of monotheistic religions (such as Judaism, Christianity and Islam) to indicate a disbeliever in their religion; although in modern times it is not always used as a pejorative. "Paganism" frequently refers to the religions of classical antiquity, most notably Greek mythology or Roman religion; and can be used neutrally or admiringly by those who refer to those complexes of belief.

 

Ok, so what is a Pagan? This isn't something easy to answer and may just shock some who call themselves Pagan as well. Ain't learning fun.

: heathen 1; especially : a follower of a polytheistic religion (as in ancient Rome)
2
: one who has little or no religion and who delights in sensual pleasures and material goods : an irreligious or hedonistic person
3
: neo-pagan
— pagan adjective
— pa·gan·ish \-gə-nish\ adjective

  I might add that Pagan also refers to many other things too, like rustic people, country people, etc. Today though most that I know that are Pagan are more like the term Neo Pagan and many that call themselves Christians might want to read #2 up above. And finally, where better to get the description than from the source?

"Paganism is a religion of nature, in other words Pagans revere Nature. Pagans see the divine as immanent in the whole of life and the universe."

Read more from the source listed below in sources. I wonder if the Green Revolution and Al Gore is listening? I know the United Nations are. They are heavily promoting this in place of the three main religions we started out with. I wonder if Capitalists were reading that too?  Bottom line. Pick which faith you are and don't say you are one and yet do the other. Capitalists though are neither Pagan nor Christian. They belong to another class headed up by Luciferians. So what is that?

 

Luciferianism is a belief system that venerates the essential characteristics that are affixed to Lucifer, originally a name referring to the planet Venus when it rises ahead of the Sun.

Luciferianism is identified by some people as an auxiliary of Satanism, due to the popular identification of Lucifer with Satan. Some Luciferians accept this identification or consider Lucifer as the light bearer aspect of Satan. Others reject it, arguing that Lucifer is a more positive ideal than Satan. They are inspired by the ancient Egyptian mythology, Roman mythology, Greek mythology, Gnosticism, and Western occultism.

  Now one has to ask one's self just exactly what being a Christian is and if they are really a Christian by faith in Jesus. Funny, I will probably get some hateful emails and I would imagine it will be from those who once were or thought they were Christian. One has to bear in mind that evil Satan believes in Jesus and knows who He is, so what separates us from being Satan? Acceptance of His laws. Acceptance of God the Father's laws. At least attempting to live by the laws. Are you practicing what you preach? But that will be covered in how to get to Heaven.
