Who or What Is mammon?
Sermon on the Mount
It is the longest and fullest continued discourse of our Savior that we have upon record in all the gospels of the bible. Today we will be talking about Who or What is mammon? Why have I chosen to talk about mammon? I have chosen to speak about mammon because it’s one of the most controversial verses that have been interpreted in many ways and some anti-Christ have used the following verse to destroy the Church and it’s image.
The sermon on the Mount starts in Mathew 5-7. We are going to focus on the specific verse on Mathew 6:24. There are several interpretation of this verse in different bibles. In The NIV version it says: 24 “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.
However we are going to focus on the King James Bible Version. In the KJV it says:24 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.
