My dog, pizza, my car, cheese steaks are all more important to me than either.

Having spent a lifetime without one and not much of the other, your two options don't rank high among my list of preferences. I'd have to say that a little more moolah would be more welcome than a guy-in-the-sky-who-grants-wishes.

While I agree with Angela about happiness, I can't help but think freedom from the burden of monetary woes might help.

Since the concept of any God is something I do not embrace, I don't personally see this as a viable option.

I don't believe in God. And I want money as much as I can live without problems. So really neither

It would definitely be, God. Because money can be here today and gone tomorrow. However, a close personal relationship with God lasts for all eternity!

Megan goodgirl....... While money is necessary it is always good  to have a balanced view of money.

There is a saying, "Money makes the world go round".  There is some truth to that statement.  After all, it takes money to buy food, obtain clothing, and pay for rent or buy a home.  "The role of money in society is incredibly important."

When a person maintains a balanced view of money-regarding it as a means to an end rather than an end in itself - it is possible to enjoy a greater measure of contentment.  However, the Bible warns that "the love of money is the root of all sorts of injurious things, and by reaching out for this love some have .....stabbed themselves all over with many pains."    Note, that it is the love of many - not money itself that brings harm. 

The Bible neither condemns money nor criticizes those who have it-even a lot of it.  The point is not the amount  a person has but his ATTITUDE toward what he has or wants to acquire.  The Bible's counsel regarding money is balanced, and it is relevent today as when it was written.    "Do not wear yourself out to gain wealth." - Proverbs 23:4.

Hard to live without either.

Best advice---probably "Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's and to God the things that are God's.

Why even compare? I mean, why it's okay to make money (even big money) and keep your faith in God. I rarely have to choose between the two in my everyday life, to be honest.
