This isn't about which gods are false, but what constitutes a false god. I have noticed many times Christians have made the comment that money and power are false gods. I assume it stems from the verses in Matthew 6:24 and Luke 16:13 that state one cannot serve two masters. One can't serve God and money.
I disagree that money or power are on the level with a deity. I disagree that money or power are worshiped.
A false god is, in Abrahamic doctrines, a deity or object of worship that is either illegitimate or non-functioning in its professed authority or capability. The term is often used throughout the Bible to compare YHWH, interpreted as the one true God, infinite, body-less and transcendent as compared to anthropomorphic deities of competing religions.
The teaching means we shouldn't be stingy with material wealth.
Loving money or power isn't the same as worshiping them. Love doesn't equal worship, just as serving doesn't equal love.
I feel that claiming that modern false gods are money and power waters down the meaning of deity and worship.
Has Christianity run out of competing gods and need to invent new false gods or is it just politically incorrect to bash other gods so a more universal villain is needed?
