Pecunianity


The Old Testament God tells us "To worship no God before him". God accepts that we are tempted to worship other Gods, and he doesn't have a huge problem if people accept Gods of secondary status.  It becomes a real problem is when people make God the second-class deity.

The primary religion of our time is Pecunianity -- the belief that all human activity can be valued in terms of money.  The punishments that await a person who refuses to accept Pecunianity's tenets are severe and swift, a type of excommunication.  They are completely shed.  Pecunianity has no problem with your secondary worship (for example, Jesus), just as long as you accept the primacy of financial and economic reasoning as a means of navigating reality.

The federal reserves efforts to teach "financial literacy" is fundamentally religious proselytization. Parents worrying about their kids finances, it is not different from elders in previous generations worrying about the immortal souls of their children. People seeing the harsh treatment of non-believers as confirmation of their view is reminiscent of theocratic legitimation, where the absence of divine intervention to rescue heretics substantiates the faith in the system itself.
