Graft and corruption, bribery and such where people lust for as many money they can grab. They love the seats of power so they can use their intelligence to manipulate the treasures of his people, the wealth of the world. For they love political influence, fame and power to give convenience and comfort to their life. The treasures of wickedness, the treasures of the earth which Satan employ trying to win the game.
These does not excuse those who are in the religions of men and those who capitalize the luxury embedded in non-government organizations or “charitable” associations.
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV
2 Treasures of wickedness profit nothing: but righteousness delivereth from death.
Mat_6:19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
Mat_6:20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
Col_2:3 In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
Mat_6:21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
Mat_12:34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.
Mat_12:35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.
Mat_13:15 For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.
Mat_13:19 When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.
Mat_15:8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.
Is it coincidental for the word GOD, instead of Loving HIM, people placed the L before D, converting GOD into GOLD, now LOVE for GOLD?
