NO ONE CAN SIMULTANEOUSLY SERVE

MAMMON (the World and Money) AND ALSO GOD

A Theological Treatise Exposing the Great Doctrinal Fallacy of the Opus Dei and Others

Originally Published in 1999


Prologue

Regardless of the level of faith of the reader, the lack of coherence between what the apparently ultra conservative Roman Catholic groups (0) pretend to uphold,  the teachings of Christ and the RC Church Administration, constitutes the most revealing factor of their true motives.

Purpose of the Document

When a father disciplines his loving child the central message should be the reason for such disciplinary action. Our Heavenly Father, Who is Perfect and Infinite in all His attributes, wishes that His children understand, in its totality, the reason for His disciplinary actions, past, present and future. Actions which He allows [not causes, but allows] in an ever increasing frequency and severity. Such is the purpose of this document.

Praised by our Heavenly Father for He is Just and Merciful!


Hypothesis

Let us propose three hypothetical questions: (a) Why will the Biblical Babylon fall?; (b) Why do its foundations rest on sandy soil; (c) Who were the Architects and Engineers of Babylon?

Citing St. Paul and expounding on the Biblical commentaries of Monsignor Straubinger (1), we can discern the answers to such questions and, thus, demonstrate the Fundamental Thesis.


Fundamental Thesis

Proclaimed by Jesus Christ and transmitted by St. Matthew: "...You cannot serve God and mammon (the world and money)."


The Basis

In the First Letter to Timothy, Chapter 6, (1a) we are warned by S. Paul that:

[3] If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to the sound words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to that doctrine which is according to godliness, [4] he is proud, knowing nothing, but sick about questions and strifes of words; from which arise...[5] conflicts of men corrupted in mind, and who are destitute of the truth, supposing gain to be godliness. ...[9] For they that will become rich, fall into temptation, and into the snare of the devil, and into many unprofitable and hurtful desires which drown men into destruction and perdition.


The Error

That doctrine "...which is according to godliness..." does not dwell on the material (2). The apostasy of Babylon (3) precisely consists on that worldly attitude (4) which places God primarily as an agent of temporal goods and which transforms the opportunity for eternal life, provided by Jesus Christ, into a program of purely human values. Values centered about the objectives of: Economic well being, Cultural Advancement, Political Influence and Ecclesiastic Control.

Having been conquered by the ambition of the material, which today seems to be the ideal of so many of the otherwise well intentioned faithful,(5) St. Paul shows that, not only one's conduct is endangered, but also the faith. This should not surprise us since the love for money is idolatry (6). From this it readily follows that the faith is reduced to a mere shadow which only serves to further offend God: "But yet the Son of man, when he cometh, shall he find, think you, faith on earth?" (7).

Why so few men retire from the work force even when they do not need more material goods? Why are there so many consecrated souls who run after vain honors trying to cover themselves with worldly glory?

Because their lives are spiritually empty; they feel naked and are frightened not knowing how to fill their lives and how to cover their nakedness.

Who has propagated such Error? How has it been disseminated?

Those who are destitute of the Truth teach the enticing concept that gain is equivalent to godliness.

The quoted passage from the First Letter to Timothy is directed to those who subtly preach with the objective to make financial gains, confounding the simple with their pious appearance so that all be reduced to their own gain. It is imperative to avoid mixing godliness and business (8). This is why St. Paul illustrates to his beloved disciple what is meant by true godliness of the apostles (9).

Benedict XV (1914-22) severely criticizes the preachers who "deal in so many worldly things that all they have of sacredness is the place where the preaching is done", and adds: "It happens that frequently they progress from the exposition of the eternal truths into politics, especially if that captivates more the attention of the audience. It appears that they have only one ambition: To please the audience (10). These are the ones which St. Paul refers to as "audience pleasers".

That is the reason for: (a) The histrionics of many preachers; (b) The use of terminology customary in newspapers; (c) The many quotations from books written by the unfaithful and not from the Sacred Scriptures nor the writings from the Founding Fathers' writings (11): Simply to please the audiences.

The conduct of the holy apostles Peter and Paul will always be the model for us, as it is prayed for in the Preface of the Apostles. We must emulate their examples (12), since "Jesus Christ, yesterday, and to day; and the same for ever." (13)

The Price

To conduct business with religion as a means of, and under the cover of, godliness, as did the silversmiths of Ephesus (14), or the priests of Bel (15), or like the ones of Israel who forced kings Joash and Jehoash to divert the moneys from the cult (16), is an abomination in the Eyes of God. Its duplicity (17)  is the rejection of His Majesty and the mockery of His Love. These actions, in effect, place Him, the Supreme Goodness, at the service of the miserly interests of the moment. Be them financial or political.

We should remember that it was precisely this Error which caused our Heavenly Father to allow the release of the anti clerical virus using the French and Bolshevik Revolutions, the Spanish Civil War, etc. as the contaminating vehicles.

Nothing seems to have been learned through the human suffering caused by the anticlerical virus except to be discreet as The Prelature of the Holy Cross and Opus Dei, Regnum Christi and other sect-like groups within the Roman Catholic Church, teach to their members to be. Therefore, our Heavenly Father, in a magnificent display of His Mercy, will assist us, this time (18) in a definite and final way,   to learn what we refuse to learn: To live in accordance to the Divine Law, serving God and not Mammon.

Whatever is built upon sandy foundations will collapse, just as we were warned it would: Be it nation; be it organization; be it religious congregation; be it Personal Prelature; be it man. Everything.

By the Grace of God the Holy Church will not ultimately succumb (19); but woes to those who, from its very womb, milk it as if it were a Sacred Cow for their own personal and worldly benefit (20) under the cover of false piety and corrupt theology.

Epilogue (Added on April 2005)

St. John Bosco (Founder of the Salesian Order) proved how the application of the Gospel of Jesus Christ worked and moved mountains without having to resort to physical levers such as money and political power. In an Italy which had become rabid anticlerical at this time, his work flourished in an unprecedented manner because it was truly the Work of God. He was even assisted in his work by the same government which was stripping the Vatican of its temporal powers and assets. The Hallmark of a truly Divine enterprise.

The anti Christ is to Christ what Josemaría Escrivá is to St. John Bosco (21) !
