Evidently some political conservatives have the idea that if you are a faithful Christian, God will prosper you financially and that if you do not respect God, you will find economic disaster. This is the devil’s crock; it simply won’t fly! The apostles were among the most faithful you could find and they did not live in luxury. The wealthy were those whom Jesus said faced a challenge greater than squeezing a camel through the eye of a needle, humps, hooves, hair and all – it can be done, but only with the help of God. Moreover, there are plenty of fabulously wealthy people who thumb their noses at God. There simply is no direct correlation between prosperity and faith, unless one counts laying up riches in heaven where thieves to not break in and steal nor rust corrupts.
