    The fact is that most rich people pass on their wealth to their children and relatives. Few if any give up their wealth to the poor completely.

    I don't see then how God or anything divine can be connected to it.

    sell all his possessions, and give the money to the poor, and then to come, follow Jesus

    These words speak for themselves!

    I did not say all the wealthy, I said if you are a believer. Also it is not as if there is a gun to their head to do the right thing.

    Most wealthy people will tell you they are believers. All of our Presidential Candidates claim to be believers and they are wealthy people. I doubt any of them will be signing off their wealth though.

    Did Jerry Falwell pass all his wealth to the poor?

    Big Jesus was making a point to the man in the Bible. Everywhere in the New Testament Jesus says you have to lose yourself give up everything and find new and eternal life in Christ. If you are not willing to follow where God calls you to go then you should not take up the faith. He wasnt saying that all that are rich should abandon their wealth but if their wealth is more important to them than following Christ then they should and if they cant then how can they enter heaven.

    Those that don't give up their wealth, which is most, are still welcomed and worshipped as Christians here on Earth.

    We have buildings and businesses named after the likes of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Morgan, and Edison yet none gave up their wealth.

    Are they in Hell? I doubt most Americans think they went to Hell.

    Did you even read what I wrote? I am sure that all of those people gave to charity.
