You may recall that Jesus said (Mark 19: 23-26) that “...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.” Also in Mark 10:17-31, Jesus told the rich man, “...sell all that you have and give to the poor...” I predict that Rush Limbaugh will host a TV special where he will demonstrate how to step through the eye of a needle and then turn around and give all his wealth to the poor. If he does not, then he is certainly not a Christian: he is a capitalist. Some historians have pointed out that the small door set inside of a large door at the entrance of a town was called the “eye of the needle.” It allowed people in one at a time after locking the large door. A camel would have to get on its knees and crawl through - a difficult maneuver. I don’t know it that is what Jesus was referring to. I doubt it.
I read somewhere that writers should have a pen name. I can’t decide between “Bic” and “Le Blanc.” Any suggestions?
Michael Stern, a reader, pointed out that I failed to mention Kansas in my blog about Fifty Shades of Grey spin offs. (Check my archives for Dec 2) He suggested, Kansas: The original screenplay about a man and woman who died of boredom on I-70. Very funny. I lived in Kansas for four years. Thanks Mike.
