Bandit, you're going to hurt yourself trying to act like you understand the story you quote from the Bible. But alas, I'll give you my answer.Bandit (19,080 posts)
Two questions for Republican Christians
Do you believe Romney is Rich?.... do you believe Romney is going to Heaven?
If Romney is rich, and by all accounts he is extremely rich, and Jesus said that it would be easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter heaven, how is it possible Romney could enter Heaven? Why would you vote for a person you know Jesus himself would not allow into Heaven? Has your Party become more to you than Jesus Christ?
1. Yes I believe Romney is rich.
2. According to the Bible, he will not go to heaven because he doesn't accept that Christ is the son of God
Jesus "allows" rich people in heaven. The operative point is that riches can make one view money as their god, which is 'having other gods before Me' and 'no graven images'. This is what Jesus was warning against, not your narrow view that no rich people can go to heaven.
Some people have heaven on earth, as in, riches or fame for example are your reward, and not eternal life with God.
