Can a true Christian be under the spirit of mammon? Absolutely!

It has been said that "The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world that he doesn't exist."

One modern evangelical harshly and rudely scorned me, saying that those Christians who are under the spirit of mammon are not true Christians. He said, that because the 'term' spirit of mammon is not used in the Bible, and therefore he does not exist.

So, if the Bible does not explicitly say something, it does not exist? Such is mammon's greatest deception. That he does not exist. 

He does exist. The spiritually alive Christian should be able to discern him. If not, the true Christian must learn to discern spirits, a gift given by the Holy Spirit (Acts:17:11).

Discernment is not a special calling. It is mandatory calling for all Christians.

Satan's ministers are all like him. 2 Corinthians 11:14-15 says:

And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works. Thus, mammon, like satan seeks to devour souls, and blind Christians who yield to him besettingly.
Nothing could be more naive than to say that a true Christian can never fall into mammon's trap which is what it means to be under the spirit of mammon.
