    There are some big differences in attitude between UK and US Christians towards money and its acquisition. For example, I learned at church (in UK) about it being easier for a rich man to pass through the eye of a needle than to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. This teaching seems to be forgotten by many American denominations.
    Perhaps distance obscures ...
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    It's probably different depending on the church, not the country. I assume

    Welcome to CF!

    The scripture you are referring to is talking about a person who becomes more dependent on money than they are on God. It's not bad to be rich - but if you are rich your money can pull you away from God.

    Nevertheless, you are right, some churches seem to have lost their way.

    Welcome to CF :wave:

    There are many posters from the UK here now - yes even me :p

    I suspect you will find that there are a lot of differences between UK and USA ideas - as indeed there are in language.

    Each church is different, even within the same denominations.
