The Love Of Money

What does the love of money do to a person who lives for it?

A study on the Book of Luke Chapter 16: The Love of Money

The love of money will make you steal from your job, taking money and wasting it for your pleasures.

“Jesus also said to His disciples, “There was a rich man whose manager was accused of wasting his possessions.” -Luke 16:1

The love of money will make you become a dishonest person. You will do whatever it takes to get yourself out of trouble through unrighteousness, cheating people for your benefit.

“The master commended the dishonest manager because he had acted shrewdly. For the sons of this age are more shrewd in dealing with their own kind than are the sons of light.” -Luke 16:8

The love of money will make you be an untrustworthy person in all aspects of life. Living for money will corrupt the heart and make you hardhearted towards others and unfaithful with one’s responsibility with other people’s things.

“Whoever is faithful with very little will also be faithful with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much.” -Luke 16:10

A person cannot live for money and God at the same time. Whomever you serve, it will make you like it. Worldly wealth will make you more materialistic and greedy, pushing you to live for the flesh. You won’t desire the return of Jesus Christ, for your heart will be anchored in this world.

The indwelling of the Holy Spirit will change your spirit and transform you to look and act like your Creator, Jesus Christ.

“No servant can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.” -Luke 16:13

Leaders in the churches who love money will become corrupt and useless for the kingdom of heaven. They will reject clear commandments from Jesus to stay away from the love of money.

“14 The Pharisees, who were lovers of money, heard all of this and were scoffing at Jesus. 15 So He said to them, “You are the ones who justify yourselves before men, but God knows your hearts. For what is prized among men is detestable before God.” -Luke 16:14-15

Avoidably, choosing money over Jesus Christ will take you to Hell, a place of fire, and deep darkness forever.

“19 Now there was a rich man dressed in purple and fine linen, who lived each day in joyous splendor. 20 And a beggar named Lazarus lay at his gate, covered with sores 21 and longing to be fed with the crumbs that fell from the rich man’s table. Even the dogs came and licked his sores.” -Luke 16:19-21

“22 One day the beggar died and was carried by the angels to Abraham’s side. And the rich man also died and was buried. 23 In Hades, where he was in torment, he looked up and saw Abraham from afar, with Lazarus by his side. 24 So he cried out, ‘Father Abraham, have mercy on me and send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue. For I am in agony in this fire.’ -Luke 16:22-24

  1. so, since your god demands money, and has tons of gold and silver and idolizes them so much that his tacky city of heaven on earth is built out of them, seems like your god is obsessed with material things, just like its ignorant followers.

    1. You have a misconception of who God is and what His will is. Your mind is twisted and devoid of all truth.

      God commands us to love people, and through money, He puts it into the mind of Christians to help those who don’t have anything. Each individual has the responsibility to help the poor. God also wants His followers to support the church, so that it may continue to bring the gospel to the lost, like yourself, who needs it badly.

      1. This is God’s will for you and for those who live in darkness.

        John 3:16-18

        16 For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that everyone who believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him. 18 Whoever believes in Him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe has already been condemned, because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.

        2 Peter 3:9

        9 The Lord is not slow in keeping His promise as some understand slowness, but is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish but everyone to come to repentance.

      2. poor span, still more baseless threats and failure. And still nothing to show that Span is even a christian at all, since he can’t heal people or do miracles like JC promised (John 14).

        Span isn’t a Christian and can’t show that his version is the one true version of Christianity or that he knows what this god’s will is.

      3. You will find out one day. If you continue to walk in pure ignorance, your sins will follow you when you die. Jesus loves you and wants to forgive you of all your sins. He will never force you, but those who die without Christ will go into utter [total] darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

      4. no, span, I won’t find out “one day”. That’s the usual sadistic Christian fantasy that has been spouted for over 2000 years now.

        Jesus loves no one. He’s imaginary. And if he weren’t, well, dear, love isn’t murdering those who don’t agree with you and then working with your archenemy to corrupt those who do so you can kill more people (Revelation 19-21).

        No weeping, no gnashing of teeth. All that will happen is that we’ll die. I’ll die happy that I didn’t waste time and resources. You’ll die wondering why your god failed again to come back and make sure that span didn’t have to die.

      5. Your words are unintelligent and sad. The horrors that you will face will be unimaginable because of the hardness of your heart. Satan has filled your heart with hatred towards Jesus, who did nothing to you except give you life. You wake up every morning because of Him. He feeds you and strengthens you to accomplish all of your tasks. Give Jesus Christ glory today.

      7. so, more baseless threats and nonsense. Span, you can’t even show you are a Christian or that your god exists.
        Until you christians can get it straight who is right about free will and predestination, John 3 is pretty pointless.

      8. I come to your site to show that you are no more than a failure and liar, Span. I’m quite glad you let my comments through. Your responses to them do far more to unmask Christianity than I could by just posting alone.

        You have yet to show your version of Christianity is the truth, Span. I certainly don’t get any truth from you. As usual, the Christian insists that only he has the “truth”.

      9. You are fulfilling the words of Jesus. You prove this passage to be true.

        John 15:18 “If the world hates you, understand that it hated Me first.”

        You are seeking evidence that you don’t want to really believe in. You are just here and over there, other Christian sites, to bother us with your antics because you are angry at God. God is love, you are full of hate because you have made Satan your lord without even being aware of it. Jesus is asking you to repent and believe in Him before you enter into eternity and then it will be too late.

      10. and again, easy to “predict” something that was already happening.

        you are lying again, span. I am seeking evidence, and yep, if you could show me some evidence that you are a Christian per what the bible claims, I would consider it. You have to lie and claim I wouldn’t consider it since you know you don’t consider evidence you are wrong at all.

        So, Span, how is killing a child for the actions of its parents “love”? How is killing all non-christians “love”? How is working with satan to corrupt Christians “love”?

        I don’t repent for something I didn’t do. Poor Chrisitanity, inventing “sin” and then offering a repair for it. Rather like a firefighter who sets fires so he can be a savior.

      11. “you are lying again, span. I am seeking evidence, and yep, if you could show me some evidence that you are a Christian per what the bible claims,”

        The Bible says that those who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ shall be saved. I have believed that Jesus died for my sins and rose from the grave on the third day. I have been born again. I read His Word, pray, and live with the help of the Holy Spirit according to His Word. That is my evidence. You are not looking for personal testimonies, because I have mines on my blog. Your response will be, “Span, you didn’t say anything, you are just a liar,” and on and on it goes.

        Unless you believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, you will not be saved. Repent of your sins and Jesus will forgive you. Humble yourself before the Lord and He will renew you with His Spirit, making you into a new woman. Jesus loves you and doesn’t want you do die lost. God’s hand of forgiveness is extended, but it won’t be like that forever.

        “I don’t repent for something I didn’t do.”

        You were born into sin. As a sinner, you cannot enter into heaven and be with Jesus unless you repent and accept the free gift that Jesus is offering.

        “Poor Chrisitanity, inventing “sin” and then offering a repair for it.”

        Lol, poor me, even though I have true joy in Christ who saved me from my sins. I rejoice in the Lord my Savior, Jesus Christ. Sin is invented? Really. Lol, that is the funniest thing I have ever heard. You yourself are evident that sin dwells within you. Are you greedy? Do you lust? Have you harbored hatred towards someone? Have you stolen? Have you used God’s name in vain? Have you, fill in the plank.

        You are full of sin and your desires are to satisfies your flesh. The flesh desires what goes against God who is righteous. The flesh is self-centered and only thinks about itself. That is what you are and like I said, unless you humble yourself and believe in Jesus Christ, you will die lost and will be cast into utter darkness where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

      12. I couldn’t allow your comment since it was full of filth and blasphemy. Your comment shows how truly dark your heart is. If you are this dark in the inside, I could just image how dark you look in the outside. You must look like a misrable person.
