The Eye of the Needle

Ironically, many very conservative Christians, Christians who despise the modern welfare system and our current President, are leery of personally practicing capitalism in a big way. They do in fact take the warnings towards the rich found in the New Testament seriously.

Well, if you aren’t going to have a socialist state, then somebody will end up being rich, and if those somebodies aren’t Christians, then non-Christians will control most of the institutions of the nation — unless middle class Christians do much more effective pooling of their resources than they are doing today.

And so I have continued my meditation on Christianity vs. Capitalism by asking, “Why is it harder for a camel [rope?] to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the Kingdom?” One possibility is that there are a rather large number of restrictions on Christian capitalists.
