The ways which mammon manifests himself

Many Christians think that careerism is what embodies mammonisation. This is an extremely limited understanding of what it means to be under the spirit of mammon. As long as one is seeking to rely on one's carnal means to obtain one's earthly needs, one is under the spirit of mammon. The term 'under the spirit of mammon' means to be seduced by mammon, whether by completely handing oneself over to him in the extreme case of careerism, seeking first one's earthly needs and being self-content materially, or being anxious and worried about one's earthly needs on a regular basis, in the case of a true Christian.
