The god of this world

“When I saw an article today indicating that Wall Street bankers had given themselves $20 billion worth of bonuses, the same amount of bonuses as they gave themselves in 2004, at a time when most of these institutions were teetering on collapse and they are asking for taxpayers to help sustain them, and when taxpayers find themselves in the difficult position that if they don’t provide help, that the entire system could come down on top of our heads, that is the height of irresponsibility. It is shameful."
That's what most people worship themselves and their own personal desires, greed, selfishness and wants, the idols of their lives. See, even if it's just a hut or a tin shanty or grass shack on an island, or a Cadillac or a wooden canoe, if it's what you'd rather have above all things on Earth and what you worship, what you love above God and others, then it's your idol, it's your god, it's your religion.
In the Capitalistic Commercial System, its temples are banks. Its temples are office buildings to which its devotees and worshippers resort to worship eight hours a day from nine to five, five or six days a week! They all seek and lust after the same things and not God! They worship things riches, power, money and wealth. Materialism is the god and the religion of this Earth today!
