When we talk about mammon, we must examine its influence in the spiritual realm. Although we cannot see this realm with our physical eyes, it is as real as the natural world in which we live. The spirit of mammon attaches itself to money, and if we are not careful, we can fall under its subtle influence. Its goal is to exert demonic influence in the area of our finances. It tries to trick us into trusting money more than God by slightly twisting the truth of his word just enough to confuse us. We are susceptible to this type of trickery if we do not know the word of God well enough to see through mammon’s lies.
