    does the bible say, it will be as hard for a rich man to get to heaven as it is for a camel to get through the eye of a needle

    Matthew 19:24, Mark 10:25, Luke 18:25 are the scriptures about the eye of a needle. In ancient times the big doors of a city was locked at night. People parked their camels outside and entered the city through a small door; known as the eye of a needle
    Jesus was saying it would be easier for a camel to go through the eye of the needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. I guess love of money is a problem.

    This story has been circulating for decades and I heard it is false- that it was invented by rich people so they feel better about being wealthy and entering heaven. Only God is the judge. It clearly says loving money is the sin- probably the sin of idolatry.

    Matthew 19:24 And again I (Jesus) 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. Mark 10:23 And Jesus looked round about, and saith unto his disciples, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!
    Mark 10:24 And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus answereth again, and saith unto them, Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God!

    You can find the "Eye Of A Needle" scripture in these books: Matthew 19:24, Mark 10-25 and Luke 18:25.
    Read down to them because the incident begins before Jesus says the verse.
