Gaetan, you just don't get it. Money is not evil.

Money is just a tool. A hammer is not evil but someone could do evil things with a hammer. Same with money.

If i give money to help fee starving Ethiopians, is that money evil and showing faith in satan? If I spend money to help widows and orphans, is that showing faith in satan?

The Bible doesn't say that money is evil in any way, shape or form.

Jesus said that you can't have two master, God and money, God and Satan, this is one or the other.

ESV Mt 6

No one can serve two masters, for 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 God and money.

Are you claiming that Jesus was serving Satan when he said "the laborer deserves his wages"?

Do you "serve" money? Is money your "master"? If not then it is possible, just in your own experience, for one to use money without serving it or having it as one's master.

Unless you must now confess to serving money and having money as your master, simply because you use it yourself. Your assertion above is not only pointless but knowingly, by you, pointless.

Additionally pointless as, even if you do confess as above, your simple inability to use money without serving it or it becoming your master in no way requires others to be likewise so subjectated.

I notice that you have posted 3 more times. Care to answer my questions?

Gaetan, you still don't get it. Having money doesn't mean I serve satan. Like I said I work and give money to Ethiopians who are starving, that is not being devoted to satan. Working and giving a tithe to the church is not serving satan.

I can work and earn money and spend and use money in ways that aligns with God's word.

What do you use your money for Gaetan?

To go to heaven you have to be like God and what he gives us is free of charge. And if you want to go to hell you have to be as Satan, with him nothing is free of charge.

But you admitted that you use money, so you are going to hell.

You and we and Jesus will all be in the company of Satan then since we all use or used money?

You don't really give any thought at all to your arguments, do you.

The Bible says in order to go to heaven, you must believe in Jesus Christ.

John 14:6 - Jesus says I am the way the truth and the life. No one goes to the father except through me.

There is nothing in the Bible that says money is a no no.
