  • No. You are satanic if you deliberately serve Satan. If you serve only money (or are devoted to the quest for more of such), then, according to the verse you posted (Matthew 6:24), you do not serve God. Not serving God is not the same as deliberately serving Satan. Not everything in this world is a binary either this or that situation.
  • This Scripture is telling us that we only have 2 choices. If you don’t serve Jehovah God, who are you serving? Satan’s system includes the love of money, and anything that could become a distraction from pure worship (Galatians 5:19-21 & Romans 8:38,39).
  • Yes, if you serve anything other than God, you are being tempted away from God. Satan is the adversary, the tempter, the deceiver, father of lies, the thief. Acts 5:3 Then Peter said, “Ananias, how is it that Satan has so filled your heart that you have lied to the Holy Spirit and have kept for yourself some of the money you received for the land? Matthew 16:23 Jesus turned and said to Peter, "Get behind me Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the concerns of God , but merely human concerns. Matthew 6:24 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. Mammon’s greatest power is the influence it can exert over the human mind and heart. It inspires envy, greed, and lust so potent that even good men can be driven to corruption. Usually, Mammon’s evil grip leads to obsession; once you fall under its spell, you will struggle to focus on anything other than the treasure used to tempt you, and you will do almost anything to get your hands on it. Because of this ability to monopolize a person’s energy, many theologians described Mammon as “enslaving” men. Remember what Satan said to Jesus Matthew 4:8-9 Again, the devil took Him to a very high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. “All this I will give You,” he said, “if You will fall down and worship me.” Because Satan doesn't care how he leads you away from God, just that he does, even if he gets you serving yourself and worshipping yourself it is a success for him, after all he too wanted to be like God, just as Adam did. This is why Jesus said in Matthew 19:21 Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me. If you mind is where money is, then that is where your heart is, and you cannot serve two masters, you cannot be double minded. Luke 10:27 Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.”
  • Have you prayed with real and honest intent to God to know the answer to this question for yourself, or do you just want opinions? My opinion is you should ask God directly and get the answers you seek directly.
  • Serving money is only Satanic if it makes you lie, cheat, steal and kill. Money being the ultimate tempter causes people to do all sorts of things they wouldn’t normally do. In Matthew 19:16-30, a young man asks Jesus what he must do to obtain Eternal Life, and Jesus tells him to follow the commandments. But when the man tells Jesus he has done all that, his ability to obey the first commandment tells him to sell all his possessions and give it to the poor and follow Him. The young man was unwilling to do so: his wealth had become a Satanic idol that made him his master.

      So now you and the seventh day adventists are taking credit for what The Bible says? Explain to me how that is not usurping God's power! You and the 7th day adventists have POWER over NOTHING! Its all God!! You can't even POWER your own mind or body without HIS consent! You egotistical piece of satan's work!

      Wow, how very hateful of you. For your information, you shouldn't be concerned with how I answer or what congregation I am from. I may suggest you comment elsewhere before I correct you as usual. Then as always, you end up complaining when you can't hold a discussion.
  • Ask yourself if money has control over you. It is how you will know what exactly are you serving. Matthew 6:21 "For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."
