  1. Nothing new about the religion of money. Jesus told us we have a choice – God or Money. We can’t have both. However a lot of Christians conveniently forget this and think they can have both. Some think it’s OK if they do good things with their money. They just forget a simple thing. Our thoughts follow our choices. If we chose money there are all sorts of follow-ons: like chasing money to get more of it; reading the finance pages first to check our investments; putting a price on everything, even human beings; giving more time and thought to money than to people, the planet and other species. The ultimate follow-on is becoming immune to lives and suffering.

    If we are truly following a spiritual path, it will bring follow-ons from that choice. And we know we are followiing a false path if loving others as we wish to be loved is not a priority.
