“Riches profit not in the day of wrath:”
What did Jesus say about earthly wealth and eternal salvation?
“It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.”
Yet, the rich keep getting richer. More than that, the rich keep pursuing wealth for the sole purpose of the pursuit.
It would take the world’s richest man 220 year to spend his accumulated wealth.
“For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?”
It would take Bill Gates 218 years to spend the wealth he has accumulated.
“No servant 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.”
Seems crystal clear–but there’s no end of the “men of God” preaching that what the Bible clearly says means something else.
In covetous America, the Land of Lucre, those who inhabit the churches are taught that it is hard to serve Jesus and money. But is that what Jesus said?
Did He say “it hard to serve two masters”?
Or, did Jesus say is it can’t be done?
