This is a cross posting from my Premier site, PascalFervor.com.
We who are relatively well off are who blocks reform. I explain the hows and whys of it here, or at the backup here.
As you will see, I was provoked to write it because my friend and colleague Fran Porretto seemed to reduce to a triviality the words of Matthew 19:23-24 (the camel through the eye of a needle allegory).
I don't believe that was Fran's intent. Still, if a man of Fran's knowledge, faith and intellect can do such a thing, I am sure many others can do the same and even worse.
So this is my contribution to understanding an important passage in the Bible.
