    He wouldn’t fit even without the camel.

    A lot of people think that. It isn’t.

    The fools are in “heaven” doing nothing but standing still on clouds, staring unblinking at “god” singing praises and hosannas to him in ever higher crescendos nonstop forever. That is the worst thing I can think of.

    excuse me Clark but when the lightning hits, I really don’t want to be this close to you.

    Oh CLARK It might be standing for eternity knowing there was a great party and you refused the invitation.

    As for the “eye of the needle”, it is a gate in Jeruselem a camel may enter by kneeling. Allegory, perhaps. You got forever to decide.

    In truth, the Biblical “Eye of the Needle” was a narrow mountain pass where a rider had to dismount his camel to pass through it. Like most of the Bible, the statement was purely allegorical.

    “Eye of the needle” is not a gate in Jerusalem. That was a lie, probably fabricated by a ‘man of the cloth’ to assuage his guilt surrounding his greed.

    When Jesus said that it’s easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to get into heaven, the disciples didn’t say, “Oh yeah, tough, but not impossible. Camels go through the gate all the time.”

    No, they were shocked. They thought that wealth was a sign of God’s love and wondered then WHO can possibly get into heaven? Jesus was talking about the impossible.

    The important thing is what comes next. Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

    Haha! This is so true! How stupid is it that we don’t take everything the bible says completely seriously?

    I always thought “Eye of the Needle” was a mundane novel by Ken Follett or an even worse movie by Richard Marquand. An allegory for boring, perhaps.

    Lewreader, SQLMamma is correct about the “Eye of the needle.” When Jesus said it, he meant it to be understood in those terms. Ultimately, what he meant was, those who have great wealth are condemning themselves because they love it more than pretty much anything else. Certainly, they love it more than the poor.

    Regardless of your faith or lack thereof, love of wealth will kill your soul (or whatever life-giving force you choose). Say what you will about Jesus, in the gospels he is far more concerned with how the poor and disenfranchised are cared for than about sex. I recommend his approach.

    Oh, and Clark, I assume you don’t believe in heaven. Fine, but then it’s disingenuous to say what heaven is like. Generally, neither scripture nor the church say anything about what goes on there or what it looks like - only that it is a place of joy.

    I know too many people who have all the goodies and parties and sex they want and are still miserable. So I’m assuming joy doesn’t reside there (even though I like those things okay).

    What will the GOP think now. SQLMomma? Does God love them or not? Tune in tomorrow, while the Government reassesses the budget and revenues.

    and yet just by changing one letter in Koine Greek, camel becomes rope. “It is easier for a rope to pass through the eye of a needle…” Makes more sense. Nobody has the original to check…
