Can the rich be poor?

If the poor people Jesus talked to or about weren’t always poor does that mean that the rich people I talk to are also possibly poor.

I’m reading about disciples with houses and/or reasonably wealthy families, so where does that leave the rest of us… Maybe this is good news?

I doubt it is as good as it seems on the surface, for starters it doesn’t negate Jesus’ teaching about giving or his attitude to possessions. I am comforted to have learnt that there is hope for those of us with an ipad, but we still have to be careful.

  1. Clearly Jesus would pack an Android tablet, probably rooted with some kind of home-brew Linux build that Thomas put on there.

  2. Yes. Probably some unbranded Chinese thing, not wanting to align himself with a worldly brand and therefore not breaking manufacturer rules/guidelines by running Cyanogenmod.

    Would running the nightlies show strong faith or a foolish spirit?
