[quote=”[email protected]” post=1480]I must admit that I am a bit confused since I watched a TV show last night. It was a series called “Who was Jesus?”. I caught the last part of the show, but the narrator was talking about how poor Jesus was and how he socialized with some very downtrodden people. They were talking about the palace of Pontius Pilate and how ornate and lavish it was as a contrast to how Jesus lived.

Then, the narrator commented that Jesus said “He who is wealthy cannot serve God”. I am not that familiar enough with the Bible to confirm that.

How is this statement to be interpreted? You probably know where I am going with the next question. If this is true, how can we manifest our own abundance of money and still serve God? :unsure:[/quote]

Who is GOD to you? Who are you serving? :blink: :silly:
