I thought about it many times and asked many scholars from many religions and all had something to say but none that satisfied me as to why earthly gold had anything to do with heaven, it all belongs to God anyway so he doesn’t need any more.
Nope only people lust after money and it is true in all religions that wealth on earth is linked in some way with the all mighty. Either he will give you it for believing in him or you should give it so his works can be done here on earth as if he needed any help in any matters at all.
Well I am not the wisest of people nor the smartest seed on the olive tree but I think Money serves other masters than God!
