Don't know why I'm even answering this, perhaps for the "Gentle Reader" lol. When I answer it, you're just going to say "it doesn't say that in the text". That's why you shouldn't even be reading it, you have no clue how to deduce things from the text. That is obvious, whoops, there's that word again...
"Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God." Matthew 19:24
This seem a very bias and hypocritical statement coming from the Christ when we consider that he had surrounded himself with very rich and influential disciples.
"16 And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?"
Notice, the conversation BEGINS with one man. Not everybody.
What was wrong with pious rich men entering the kingdom of god?
That was this particular rich mans weakness. Not everybody's .
Why would it be less easier for a rich man than it would for a less well off man to enter the kingdom of god?
"20 The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet?"
Note, the rich man asks what HE lacks, not everybody.
21 Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.
22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions.
Note that the rich man went away sorrowful, Jesus perceived HIS weakness. That was the issue at hand.
And what is actually meant by "the kingdom of God"?
25 When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved?
Like you, they knew not that Jesus was speaking about this particular rich mans weakness.
26 But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.
The Kingdom of God is without the need for clinging to material possessions where if they become lost one becomes sorrowful and cannot move forward without them, for they go not with the individual when they leave this earth. This passage is again about principle and priorities. Very simple.
