Talking about mammon is "unspiritual" says the typical modern pragmatic Christian

I've been accused, albeit indirectly, of being "unspiritual" and "earthly" by speaking about the global debt system and evil mammonised capitalist system. These accusations have been made on the ground that the capitalist system will fade away. Yes, I know.  I do not deny that as one particular person tries to imply about me as she lectures me indirectly about been "earthly". She missed the point of what I was doing.  Completely. I am the one seeking to expose the spirit of mammon and explaining how he operates. That this blog exists is itself an indictment against the mammonisation of the church and its blindness to the spirit, in allowing itself to be under his influence. Such is an indictment! 

Yet, most Christians take no issue at all when someone makes a Biblical critique of liberalism, feminism, socialism, communism or any other ungodly evil ideology. Why is capitalism treated as a sacred cow within the modern church? Most of those Christians who object to even a Biblical critique of capitalism would be most happy to accept a Biblical critique of liberalism, feminism, socialism or communism

That the mere existence of this blog offends people indicates that mammon is being exposed. Why do you hate this blog, Christian? This is because it convicts you of seeking to rely on your own strength and not fully trust God in all things, allowing yourself to be under the spirit of mammon.

Talking about mammon is very spiritual. See Matthew 6:24. Jesus said that no one can serve two masters, both God and mammon. You will hate one and love the other. Failing to fully trust God itself is a hatred of God. Sin itself is a hatred of God. 

When King David sinned, God said to him: "Now therefore the sword shall never depart from thine house; because thou hast despised me, and hast taken the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be thy wife" (2 Samuel 12:10). Sin itself, including the most respectable sin of the modern church, anxiety, is hatred of God. To argue that sin itself is not hatred of God is to blaspheme God by claiming to not hate Him, while sinning. It is to twist His Word and an attempt to remold His perfect Holiness. 

To even be anxious about one's earthly needs is  to despise God. The reason why most in the modern church cannot see this is because they are under the spirit of mammon in being anxious for their earthly needs. What is the root of anxiety? Pride of life. As simple as that.
