Motivations and Actions Resulting from Serving God or Mammon

In Christian Theology Students Forced off Campus by Mob of Islamic Hard-liners, it's stated
The government of President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, which relies on the support of Islamic parties in Parliament, is struggling to balance deep Islamic traditions and a secular constitution. With elections coming next April, the government seems unwilling to defend religious minorities, lest it be portrayed as anti-Islamic in what is the world's most populous Muslim-majority country.


The point is you cannot serve two masters. Serving mammon doesn't provide motivation to do the right thing in this situation. Serving God would.

Matthew 6:24 No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money.
