Let he who is without cash cast the first stone...

I've been thinking about something... The Bible has a lot more to say about sin as it relates to wealth than as it relates to sexuality. An average middle-class American is much wealthier than a majority of people in the world and is outrageously wealthy compared to most people in Biblical times. That being the case, if we want to be preoccupied with sin, we should be plenty busy wrestling with our own--just on the wealth front if nothing else. If we American Christians--being so wealthy--can presume to be accepted by God without having to give up our wealth, why do so many of us presume that other people aren't accepted by God (and therefore not welcome in our churches just as they are) because of their sexuality? We are all beloved ragamuffins before God.
