I'm not religious, but it always amuses me to watch religious people jump through hoops trying to justify themselves to books that were written thousands of years ago. Did Christ want you to be rich? No. He really really didn't. In fact he would probably condemn just about every American for being wasteful and worshipping material items while others go hungry for both food and gospel.
You can make religion say whatever you want it to say if you interpret it "correctly." But why should you? If you want to be a greedy bastard who cares mostly about yourself and doesn't give a damn about what Jesus wanted then just admit that and move on. Why try to justify your life to a dead man?
It's fucking ridiculous. Christianity to these people is just a matter of personal style. It's a label they like to apply to themselves and a nice place to go on Sunday morning. It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to get into heaven. That phrase was not a commentary on how easy it is to pass camels through needles.
