Does God Reject Rich People?

While some people will insist that God wants everyone to be rich and wealthy and enjoy their best life now, others will insist that the Bible consistently displays a negative opinion of rich people. The conversation between Jesus and the Rich Young Ruler would be offered as a prime example of this disdain. While I certainly […] […]
