Less Education Means Less Risk of
Joining Intellectual Elite; Less Travel Means More Patriotism; Less Wealth
Means Better Chance of Entering Heaven
Janine Llewellen with James
Who are the real elite of America?
Intellectuals who lack
understanding of ordinary Americans?
World-travelers who see America
through the eyes of foreigners?
The rich who have worked hard to
Or the righteous who go, not into
everlasting punishment, but into life eternal?
The real elite are not those with
advanced academic degrees in secular ideas, not those who travel to strange
countries around the world, not those who amass great wealth on earth, but
those who bask in the blessed light of the Lord.
Will the misguided socialist
policies of Obama's government do harm to the deserving
rich of America? Did Bush, by contrast, lead them in the path of righteous
light? Paradoxically, no!
When the poor cannot afford to join
the intellectual elite, when they are educated by the Church and by
television, when they see America from an American point of view, they are
welcomed into Heaven. When the wealthy have leisure to understand secular
ideas and to study non-Christian religions, when they jet around
the world meeting non-Americans, when, with hard work and valid values, they
gain a disproportionate share of wealth, they are as likely to enter the
kingdom of Heaven as a camel to pass through the eye of a needle. Even wealth
earned through virtuous endeavor dooms the rich by what it buys them:
intellectualism, internationalism, and damnation.
Obama’s socialist agenda helps the
rich by protecting them from harm. What is good for the rich is good for us
all. The rich are the best among us: they have worked without expecting
handouts, they create jobs, and they fuel the economy. With a little less
money, they will remain the best. But they will also be a little less
educated, a little less traveled, and a little more loved by God. Let this
be! Through God’s will, Obama’s agenda, perverse as it may seem, will make
our great country, already the best, all the greater. The rich will be
blessed in heaven, just as they are on earth.
“Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the
eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the kingdom of God” –Matthew
