Why First Person Shooters Beat Text Adventure Games

Callon Re:its spelled "ridiculous" (255 comments)

Totally and utterly incorrect. Sunday-school teacher lies.

The "camel through the eye of a needle" is CLASSIC exegesus material. A better translation would be:

"It is easier for a rope to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven."

Which is not only an indictment of the rich (Jesus also said "Give up all you own and follow me.") but also a good metaphor, unlike the camel thing.

Please note - I am not a Christian!
