Matthew 6:24, The Only Wrong Religion?

You cannot serve both God and money.

//One time a Samaritan woman asked Jesus whether it was appropriate to worship God on the holy mountain of Samaria or the holy mountain of Judea? It was paramount to asking whether the Jews or the Samaritans had the right religion.

Jesus’ answer was neither.

One time the disciples of Jesus came to him, distraught that another person they didn’t know was baptizing in his name. Couldn’t Jesus make him stop?

Jesus’ answer was that the man was not against him, so he must be on Jesus’ side.

There is, in fact, only one “religion” that Jesus ever condemned. One worship that is unquestionably wrong.

It is the worship of money.
