Materialism

"Materialism, coupled with the productivity of machinery and electronics, has brought us to the universal expectation of more, first rising expectations and then rising entitlements. This is what the Bible refers to as covetousness, which is condemned from the original Ten Commandments through the whole biblical literature. The common observation that prosperity tends to bring spiritual complacency, pride, and moral decline goes back at least as far as the Pentateuch (Deut. 8:11-14). The wicked are identified as those who trust in riches rather than in God (Ps. 52:7)." Herbert Schlossberg Idols For Destruction page 311
