Mammon is another word for wealth that is used in the New Testament. It is the transliteration of the Aramaic 'mamona' and means wealth or profit.
- Matt. 6:24, “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will hold to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon."
- Luke 16:9, "And I say to you, make friends for yourselves by means of the mammon of unrighteousness; that when it fails, they may receive you into the eternal dwellings."
People cannot trust in both Jesus and their material possessions at the same time. Either one or the other must be served.
