I don't think Christian's should be possessing material wealth according to the Bible. Jesus's ideas were all about self-sacrifice. Look at his ultimate action (the cross). I agree with the argument that you can only serve one master (God vs. money). The thing is, why be rich if you are a Christian? If you look at the time period and who Jesus was criticizing then you will see it was the rich and powerful he was criticizing whereas the poor he championed.
Regardless of what you are trying to do in this world, you need money and a fair bit of it. If God's work requires money, it makes sense that He would need some of his people to have that money. Supporting God's work is why any Christian would "need" to be rich.

Yeah, and He doesn't. Just because people believe different things doesn't mean they're true. The rest of what you said addresses this, as humans are often stupid and make up stupid rules to govern their religion. Really Christianity is this: We were created to love God, and be loved by God. As long as you love God, you're good to go. The rest is just fluff.
