Have any of you ever wondered who is the new God of 21st century ? Can anybody make an accurate guess ? Alright , I will tell you the answer . The answer is MONEY . Yes , the paper notes and metal coins that everyone of us are using on a daily basis . The only reason why I elevate the status of money from being a legal form of currency to the divine Godliness status is because all of us are worshipping it . Muslims , Christians , Buddhists , Hindus , you name it , we are slowly becoming a servant of the " GOD " . We let this man made creation to take over the place of the real God we had been worshipping for generations .
Now , here is where the story started . In the past , people are much more contented with what they have . The global population were less numerous and certain places are sparsely inhabited . Back then , barter trading were the only way to get basic human supplies such as food , shelter , water and land . However , after the Industrial Revolution to the 21st century , barter trading had to give way to commercial economy which is fuelled by money capital . Under this new system , the more money you have , the better your life . As a result of this new " madness " , everyone is rushing to find more money through legal and non-legal way . The end justifies the mean . This is the part where we lost our sense of humanity . Some of us are willing to be criminals , prostitutes , even killers for the sake of money . Money is never enough , they said . What they do not say , money will not follow you forever .
Well , I believe that the above statement is inadequate . Shall I give you another example ? Firstly , do you think that everyone who frequently crowded the mosques , churches and temples are good people ? Secondly , do you think that the priests , monks or whatever they call it are truly the servant of God ? I had my own answer to both questions . My answer is there are more bad than good people in these places . In fact , some of these people came here to steal holy relics and any valuable possessions belonging to the instituition . This includes antique holy books , statues , jewellery etcera in hope of selling it to interested parties for a high price .
Secondly , some priests , monks are charging exorbitant fees to their fellow devotees for a "spirit cleansing " treatment when the methods of conducting the treatment are questionable . Secondly , some of them are also " forcing " their followers to donate certain amount of money to the temple in order to get amulets which are supposed to make them invincible . The amulets then turned out to be a fake . I have to agree that these people are smart in making quick bucks from their effortless effort but they had made a lot of bad sins and karmas which are only punishable by God .
So , from here , can you see of how money had become our new God . For those people who had " slaved " themselves to the new " God " , I think you should repent and take this word for a thought , " Almost everything needs money , but money is not everything .
