Even Hitler understood what Mammon was

In the measure in which business rose to become the determining master of the State, money became the god whom now everybody had to serve and to worship.
 
 Now the celestial gods were put more and more into a corner as outmoded and old-fashioned, and instead of to them, incense was offered to the idol of mammon - Adolf Hitler

Even Hitler understood the spirit of mammon and how it operates in the hearts of humans. So why can't so many Christians in the West, especially in Australia understand it? Mammon is basically the spirit that tell you that you must serve your own needs only. It says "Thou shalt live by bread only", rather than "man shalt not live by bread alone" which is what Jesus said. And yet Christians wonder why the unsaved laugh and trample on the church?
