Your God Damned Money
Jesus put acquisition of personal property and wealth pretty low on his list of priorities. Yes, he talked about having abundant life, but “abundant life” =/= “tons of shit”.
Imagine a gazillionaire earning a trillion dollars a minute in interest and dividends while hooked up to a heart/lung machine in a comatose state and a poor kid in India splashing happily in the Ganges with his friends and tell me who has life, and life abundantly.
Eternal life came at a price: Sell all you have and give it to the poor and follow him.
What? Want to have both? No can do; grab the bucks and kiss your soul good-bye.
Bragging about all the shit you’ve accumulated? YOU FOOL!
What if somebody asks you for something? Give it to them.
What if the government wants you to pay taxes? Pay them.
