    Seriously...why? If you're going to make insane theories, wonder why everyone in the Old Testament lives to be so...well, old. Nine-hundred-plus years Yoda might be, but unless Noah was Yoda, live that long a human can not.

    Actually, the eye of the needle was a very small gate into a famous market which was familiar to people when the Bible was written. A person had to duck down to enter and they couldn't fit a camel (with luggage, etc.) through it.

    Anyway, I think this was a joke thread and the moderators should deal with it.

    Anyway, back in the time of the old testament if you were rich you most likely swindled others and didn't give to the poor/hungry. It doesn't apply as much these days, so it doesn't make as much sense to look at it literally these days either.

    The Bible is not meant to be taken literally. That's a parable. Jesus is famous for them. They are not literal.

    Rishi you clown

    I'd actually love to see a huge needle created just for the purpose of shoving a camel through it though...

    This response assumes that the Bible is the true Word of God and meant to be taken literally (which I do not actually believe, but will stipulate for the sake of argument).

    Now, it says that it's easier for a camel to fit through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter Heaven. If you have to build a needle with a seven-foot-tall eye just to get a camel to walk through it... that doesn't seem very easy to me. And it doesn't mean that rich people suddenly get to go to heaven.

    It's not a case of "When this happens, then this will happen." It's a case of "It is easier for this event, which is impossible, to happen than this other event, meaning it is also impossible." It was a metaphor. What was meant by it was, rich people cannot go to heaven.

    the Eye of the Needle was a gate. a very narrow gate. not an actual needle, you goose.

    Spiritually rich people cannot go to Heaven? Sounds like bullshit to me. Fortunately though, I'm not a Christian.
