I have to support lots of people and materialism is a reality. You cannot help a lot of people practically if you do not have money. You need money to feed and clothe people or to simply help them.
It is written somewhere ...
I tell you, use worldly wealth to gain friends for yourselves, so that when it is gone, you will be welcomed into eternal dwellings.
What I have found is that almost everyone who claims to be close to God are most unwilling to help people in a practical way. These people run away when they face a problem that is going to inconvenience them .
As for practical advice is it not also written somewhere ...?
"Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food.
If one of you says to him, "Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed," but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it?"
How can we help people if we do not have money? Money is material is it not?
So, the answer I give is Yes! I am more close to materialism and humankind than to God.
