I always found this passage from the Bible very controversial and puzzling: 'Jesus said to him, "If you wish to be complete, go and sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.' (Matthew 19:21) Does this mean Christians should not have money? And if they are allowed to have money, are they less worthy than those without any possessions? I honestly don't see anything wrong with material possessions per se. They can be a great spiritual tool and even the most pious organizations need money to survive.
