MBS048 MBS048 Mammon of Unrighteousness
By Dr. Arnold Fruchtenbaum

The “mammon of unrighteousness” is an expression which Yeshua (Jesus) used to teach truths concerning the material things of this world. He illustrated the proper attitude toward material things with the stories of the Unjust Steward, the Rich Man and Lazarus, and the Rich Young Ruler, found primarily in Luke 16.

Yeshua had previously laid down the foundation concerning the proper attitude toward mammon in the Sermon on the Mount in the principle: One cannot serve both God and mammon (Mat. 5–8). First of all, it is the believer’s responsibility “to seek the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, then all these things will be added unto him (Mat. 6:33), but one cannot serve both God and mammon.”

This was one of the major areas of conflict between Jesus and the Pharisees. The Pharisees had developed a theology that can be summarized as: “Whomsoever the Lord loveth, He maketh rich.” Because of that concept, the Pharisees gave themselves over to becoming rich in order to show that they were under divine favor. Therefore, their concept was: If a man was wealthy, it was obvious that he was a recipient of divine favor; therefore, Heaven was certainly guaranteed for a man like that. But for a poor man, one could not be sure. It is this concept that Yeshua dispelled in the course of His teachings on mammon.
