Jesus said, "If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me" (Matthew 16:24). To follow Jesus is be for Jesus, and to be for Jesus is to love Jesus. He also said in Matthew 12:30: "He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad." This means that to not follow Jesus is to be against Jesus, and therefore hating Him. Everyone will serve a master. That master will either be God, who is manifested in the flesh as Jesus, or mammon. No 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 (Matthew 6:24).
Mammon tempts people to feel as though they need more earthly things. He makes people
feel that they do not have enough, and that they are entitled to what they have. He
manifests himself through the doctrine of rights. He tells people that they are entitled to what
they have seen they 'can' have it, and want it, they should seek it.
