As well it should.

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

-CS Lewis

Unfortunately Mr. Lewis’ insights are true. The Pharisees are a perfect example.

If Mike thinks he can get to heaven based on his so-called good works,boy does he ever have a surprise waiting for him.

I hate meddlesome busybodies. My personal life is none of Bloomberg’s business. Whether I own a gun, smoke, drink a 32 ounce cup of coke, or am not his “ideal” weight is none of his concern.

He needs to bugger off!

I have to wonder,has Bloomberg ever read a Bible?Been to a decent Church?I’m thinking the answer is no,or he wouldn’t be making ignorant statements like this.

Bingo. Salvation is a gift, it must be accepted through the blood of Christ. He has no idea what he is talking about and he knows it. “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God, not by works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9. Tell me he is boasting here. His money is his parameter, and he is a fool.

Roger that. If he persists in that idea, there is a better than even chance that he goes somewhere that he doesn't want to go.

Indeed, and what he and all earned is damnation. And the liberal ethos esp. means a damned nation.

Didn’t Jesus Himself say its easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than a rich man getting into heaven?
It is also said that God humbles the proud.

Matthew 7:21-23 (New King James Version)

“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’

Pride proceeds the fall.

Yes, indeed.

The passage is in Matthew 19:24

Here is an explanation in Dr. John MacArthur’s commentary:

“Jesus is underscoring the impossibility of anyone’s being saved by merit. Since wealth was deemed proof of God’s approval and those who had it could give more alms, it was commonly thought that rich people were the most likely candidates for heaven. Jesus destroyed that notion and, along with it, the notion that anyone can merit enough divine favor to gain entrance into heaven.”

He thinks he has earned his way but the Bible says that anyone who harms one of these little ones would be better off with a millstone tied around his neck and thrown into a lake.
