    Has God Already Decided The Fate Of The Rich People? The Die Was Cast When God Said It Is Easier...

    For a Camel to Go Through the Eye of a Needle, Than For a Rich Man to Enter Into the Kingdom Of God.

    I don't think the Bible contains any such irrational views. The case here clearly serves as a warning, not a judgment. If a mom tells her child not to get too close to the water because it will drown, it isn't a judgment either but a warning. Warnings are often intended to sound a bit like judgments of course (that's where they can affect someone's behavior) but they are not really judgments - if the child stumbles and falls into the water, mom would come and save it - but that's not how parents will warn the child.

    It is utterly useless for humans to speculate what God decided to do.  For us to say that 'rich people are dammed' is the same as judging people, and we shouldn't do that.  I will let God decide everything, including the fate of rich or poor or criminals or whoever because I'm not a god.  Frankly, I won't worry about other people's fate.  I worry about my day-to-day living and my relationship with my god.

    I believe Jesus was referring to the fact that many-possibly even most-rich people are so attached to their money and possessions that they would not sacrifice it in order to serve Him. Christians must be willing to give everything they have if God asks it of them. Christ said those words immediately after a very wealthy man had asked him what he had to do to receive eternal life. Jesus told him he would have to obey the commandments, sell everything he owned and give it to the poor and follow him.

    The man was not willing to do that.

    Matthew 19:16-24

    There are other scriptures that refer to God blessing people with riches, so I do not think being rich puts a person on the path to Hell.

    It has more to do with what a person is willing to do for God.
