What do you say to people like this? I really think that they think this way because of the garbage preached out of the prosperity gospel pulpits. We've all heard about how Jesus can make you rich. What does that leave these guys? They already are rich and so don't need Jesus to do that. Worse, they know that Jesus doesn't do that and think that people who think that he does are intellectually weaker because they need a God to get them the things they desire. The only problem with thinking this way is that attaining prosperity in the form of 'things' in this life has nothing to do with Jesus or the Gospel. I could see their thoughts as they thought them.
"Look at this kid. Doesn't he see I have everything I need already?"They would snicker and just shake their head and walk away as if to communicate to me through their body language.
"Again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God." Matthew 19:24
