Repentance and Faith

“The prophets did not describe a technical fix for the economic desolation that comes from greed and idolatry. Only repentance and faith would serve. Our own economic difficulties seem to bear no relationship to those times, but the differences are only superficial. Idols of mammon invite us, too, to place our hopes on wealth, tell us that taking is better than giving, tempt us to covet what our neighbor has, convice us that we have been wronged because we do not possess as much as we desire, and finally, pervert the sense of justice that lone can preserve peace. If we continue to worship them, the unrest and discontent that mark our society now are only a sample of the destruction that is to come. Insatiable greed placing infinite claims on finite resources can have no other end.” (Herbert Schlossberg, Idols for Destruction, p. 139).
