The Symbol of Gods

                                The  Symbol Of Gods
 
When we think of God we think of religion, yes God is the one omnipotent.
There are others that see things a litttle different: the American Indians
Know god as a powerful totem and errect totem poles as ceremonious gods.
They are unaware that their gods are not the real God that gave life to us.
Then there is the Buddist people who worship their god Buddah, and they
Bow down to this god as it is so real to them. We also have the Egyptian
Culture in which people worshipped the Sun as their god, seeing it's 

Powerful rays of light shining in the heavens. But not all gods are of a 
Religious nature: There is another god that seems to have amazing powers - 
The god of money. Yes, the rich people look on this god as a god of substance, 
Wealth and real power; it can make men very powerful or it has the
Ability to destroy them. Money is without a doubt the root of all evil.
We all need it to survive in this world, but we should never treat it as a god,
Because doing so is a terrible sin, and in the end the real God would
Somehow punish you for worshipping this god of evil - money.
