I wondered if the Bible, itself, might have something to say on the matter, and thanks to the lovely thing called the internet, there's actually an entire page of Bible verses about profit, with a few choice quotes such as:
"Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." -- Matthew 6:19-21Wonder who's going to file the amicus brief on behalf of God?
"For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs." -- 1 Timothy 6:10
"No one can serve two masters, for 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 God and money." -- Matthew 6:24
