If wisdom is more precious than gems, then why are we teased with a heaven lined in silver and gold?


God tells us not to seek such things as silver or gold, but to seek knowledge of the word and wisdom to see the light. So if we receive the "light", then we have passage to heaven that will be lined with silver and gold. So why is silver and gold dangled in front of us as a desire in heaven but forbidden on earth?

    I agree. If money and wealth were forbidden, why did God prosper Abraham, Solomon, Jacob, Joseph? Even the New Testament alludes to God prospering those who trust Him and seek Him first. He only forbids LOVING money.

    The heart of Christianity is that there is no sale of tickets. Salvation is a gift, not a wage.
