Hey, I am all for being wealthy. Hope to be wealthy one day. I love money. The thing is, because I am not a Christian, I can do so without being a hypocrite.
It is a fact that Jesus preached against being wealthy. You don't have to like it. You don't have to want to believe it. Its fine that you "interpret" around it to make yourself feel better.
Just understand that you cannot serve two masters, as the big man said.
the Bible was written in parables....anyone who reads it literally is an idiot.
If you do....then you cannot support gay marriage. There are many verses that speak against it.
