This "discussion" is around Christians (A religion) and the bible (A religious text) both of which I am arguing about. People always seem to make the assumption that by rejecting religion you are rejecting the existence of a higher being. This is not the case. You are right about one thing though, this thread assumes that you know the bible. My understanding of it is best described by Mal's words, "The rest is just fluff".
My stance is that the bible is a load of stories who's origins are anything but divine. So arguing the point of rich vs poor going to heaven, based on the word in the bible, is meaningless.
Even if I did misinterpret your views you are still coming into this thread and not arguing the point. If arguing this point is meaningless then simply don't argue it, or argue as if it isn't meaningless. It isn't like your argument is something new that no one has heard before.
