A LARGE AND TIMELY INVESTMENT
in Microsoft makes Jesus one of the worlds richest men.
Like many Internet millionaires, Jesus donates significant portions
of his fortune to charity, but he also builds a mansion on Puget
Sound with 24 bathrooms and a showroom for his collection of classic
Corvettes. On a cool Sunday evening, one of Jesus oldest
friends and apostles is having supper at the house and says, "Teacher,
with your money you have done good works. You have established
foundations and created scholarships and vaccinated children and
eased starvation in the four corners of the globe. But as long
as any are still suffering on Earth, how are you able to enjoy
even a portion of your wealth? For did you not once say that it
is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than
for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of Heaven? Should not you
unburden yourself of this luxurious house and, especially, those
cars you never drive?"
WOULD keep the house and the cars. "Hell, I can do
that old camel and needle trick eight times out of ten,"
Jesus would say. "Try to find a 1964 AC compressor with
mounts. Now thats hard."
