Re: Can rich Christians go to heaven according to the bible?

How can followers of Christ justify remaining willing to give a significant part of their earnings to the poor, seeing how so many people out there are starving each day? Didn't the bible state that God is the provider, and those who have faith in Him will be taken care of? So what's the point in wealth accumulation, instead of giving all excess to the poor, if you are a true believer of God's existance?

Why is there a need to buy that television set or spend money watching that movie and other unnecessary earthly pleasures and to buy things that you do not need?

Why take the irrational chance of risking your eternal place in heaven at all, for some finite earthly pleasures to satisfy selfish personal greed?
