Last week’s term:

Infidelity – No faith or unfaithful. The proper description of a person’s way of life, who neither claims nor pursues any faith. Also used to describe the act or practice of violating commitments to faith or faithfulness which have been made.

This week’s term:

Materialism – The system which ignores the distinction between matter and mind, and attributes all the phenomena of the world, whether physical, vital, or mental, to the functions of matter. All random mutation evolutionists basically must subscribe to this religious philosophy. 

I must add that I always thought materialism was simply elevating “material possessions” above the Lord. I suppose that is one definition of the word, but this is the theological definition. To put the above in my own words,  I would say that “materialism” is making the material (matter) a god.

Thanks for reading,
