Do you want to be rich (and famous)? Think again!

"It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle,
than for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of God"

“You still lack one thing.
Sell all that you have
and distribute to the poor,
and you will have treasure in heaven;
and come, follow Me.”

"In the last days perilous times will come:
For men will be lovers of themselves,
lovers of money,
boasters, proud, blasphemers,
disobedient to parents,
unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving,
slanderers, without self-control,
brutal, despisers of good,
headstrong, haughty,
lovers of pleasure
rather than lovers of God,
having a form of godliness
but denying its power."

"Go to now, ye rich men,
weep and howl for your miseries
that shall come upon you.

Your riches are corrupted,
and your garments are motheaten.

Your gold and silver is cankered;
and the rust of them shall be a witness against you,

and shall eat your flesh as it were fire.
Ye have heaped treasure together
for the last days."
