"ye Are Gods". . . Gods Of Money Too?

Good day all,

i was doing some thinking lately and got to know that God actually did not create money as money was never part of his original plan. Man did! with money man has played god[s] and go throught the holy scriptures you'll discover that there was never any or much of God's words on the issue of how money should be administered nor gotten.

I think we are the gods of money because we have created the rules and everyone live by the rules. what are your views

Please view the verse in context

Deut. 8:18

But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.

2 Cor. 8:9

For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.

A christian is given dominion over all things as long as he realise Gods purpose for wealth ; that is to be a blessing and to expand Gods kingdom. That doesnt mean to become materialistic.

1 Cor. 6:12

All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.

2 Cor. 4:15

For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God.

1 Cor. 3:21

Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours;

But the reason for

I think there is a misconception here. as sons of God we have power to create. this is what animals don't have. IT is Adam that named the animals "in the name of GOD" God once asked the Israelis to convert there sacrifices to equivalent monetary terms if there destination are far from Jerusalem. then at Jerusalem they can buy whatever for sacrifice. besides money is not a end but a means to an end. If u have a problem use your offering to buy sth 4 your sherpard. money is usually preferred cos if u give him goods and it is not his immediate need he will still trade it for his need probably by barter in old times and u will agree with me this is more difficult

Yeah we are the gods of money and that is why we changed the tithes and first fruits God ordained in the bible for the levitical priesthood from agricultural produce into money for clergy today. It is only human to prefer our own creation[money] to that ordained[agricultural produce] by God.
