Covetousness is the source of so much sin and evil, in our lives and in the world. Wanting what you don't have, wanting what others have or "get to do"--it shows an utter lack of faith and trust in God's provision and wisdom and is as good as a cold slap or spit in His face.
And now, so much of daily commerce, entertainment, political thrust, social engagement . . . is based on and driven by the wicked, demonic spirit of covetousness! Facebook, which is not only the premier surveillance and private information gathering tool of the "one world" tyrannical cabal . . . it is also rooted spiritually in promoting the evil of covetousness--showing others what you have or do, that you want them to covet or praise. . . .
The majority of recent political violence and social agitation uses the sin of covetousness to stoke and control the minds of the weak and unwary. . . .
Covetousness has been . . . and is always used . . . by one side of committed guerrilla, infiltrating enemy forces, aimed at the targeted tribe, state or country . . . to destroy the targeted group's culture, civilization, religion, family, military. . . .
In the violent, sadistic secular "humanist" collectivist movements of the 20th century . . . over a hundred million men, women and children were systematically imprisoned, tortured, killed under the banner of covetousness disguised as "class warfare" (stealing from the rich to, ostensibly, give to the poor).
It is a wicked, vile, destructive, demonic evil . . . covetousness! It is idolatry (Col. 3:5) . . . in 1 Cor. 6:10 it is said to keep a soul from heaven and is the root of most sins: departure from faith (1 Tim. 6:9,10) . . . theft (Joshua 7:21) . . . domestic trouble (Proverbs 15:27) . . . murder (Ez. 22:12) and "many foolish and hurtful lusts" (1 Tim. 6:9).
It is the driving sin of the "one world" globalist tyrannical agenda which is right now wreaking so much suffering, death and destruction across the planet.
And in the individual believer's life it is cancer and a scourge that devours grace, faith and perseverance. . . . It is the great enemy of sanctification and cause for the stunted, dry desert spiritual life of so many professing Christians--one they tend to overlook or disguise in some other guise (zealousness, church building, "discernment ministry". . . .)
I would say it is the big one to be on the lookout for especially in these times where technology and "social media" are such powerful, motivating tools and habits. . . .
It creeps in in the dark and finds a hidden corner of the soul and begins immediately spreading out to take hold of all areas of functional living--both as a lure and as a goad. . . .
