Is Money Evil?

"No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon." - Matthew 6:24



The verse quoted above from the bible refers to a simple truth. That NOBODY can serve two masters. You can only be a servant to God or a servant to Money. It is impossible to be a servant to both God and Money. Noone has done it and noone can do it. This verse never meant to say that money was evil. Rather, it states that the allegiance one has to God needs to be total and absolute.

The reason for this was given in the earlier verses when it says "Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."

Our hearts ought to focus on the treasures in heaven and not the treasures on earth.


Money is neither good nor evil. It is the man who pursues it that makes all the difference.

  1. Hi FF,

    Money is not evil. It is only evil when it has dominion over a person.

    Money is just a tool but if one get consumed by greed and chases it as it top most priority and neglects other things....boy is it evil.
