This article proves nothing

Pretty appalled that, as a Christian, you are in favour of capitalism.

Jesus walked with the poor.

It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than it is a rich man to enter heaven.

Dear Anonymous Commenter,

We are simply pointing out the benefits of capitalism, for which we're 100% in favor of and grateful for.

Jesus also saved, walked and ate with the rich (Zacchaeus). A rich man provided a burial tomb for Jesus because; "For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich (wealthy), yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich (wealthy)." (2 Corinthians 8:9)

Study the context with good exegesis and discover rich means material wealth in this portion of scripture. It still includes spiritual wealth, but Paul is addressing the grace of giving.

Nothing wrong with being poor, but there is nothing right about it either. Neither riches or poverty earns God's grace. It is only yours by faith.

In closing, since you seem to elevate the poor over the rich, please send us all your money. We are more than happy to help you acheive this state and we'll put your money to good use proclaiming the gospel to the poor. Seriously.
