UNRAVELED

Matthew 19:24 (KJV) 24 And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
I’ve always heard the explanation that the eye of the needle is an opening in the main gate of a city, and we must unpack our good’s to God to get through that needle. While this sounds all fine and dandy, we are missing what is being said because of a mistranslation in scripture and a reasoning to make it make sense.

In this passage, needle from the Greek is "rhaphis" which is an actual needle you sew with; NOT an entry way in a gate.

REVIVING THE RELATIONSHIP

Luke 6:46 (KJV) 46 And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?

True story: I once knew a couple who were slowly fading apart. They loved each other at one time, got married, and started a life. The man, though, had his love fade into another; a race car. Every bit of time and money went into that car, while his wife sat on the sidelines. She once asked him, "If you had an extra couple hundred dollars, would you buy something I wanted or something for the car?". He replied, "For the car"

Unless there were some changes, that couple is probably separated today. There was only one thing that could have fixed it. Read More…
