25门徒听见了,十分惊奇,就问他:“这样,谁可以得救呢?”
25When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved?
25 Verse 25. Who can be saved?] The question of the disciples

seemed to intimate that most people were rich, and that therefore

scarcely any could be saved. They certainly must have attached a

different meaning to what constitutes a rich man, to what we in

general do. Who is a rich man in our Lord's sense of the word?

This is a very important question, and has not, that I know of,

been explicitly answered. A rich man, in my opinion, is not one

who has so many hundreds or thousands more than some of his

neighbours; but is one who gets more than is necessary to supply

all his own wants, and those of his household, and keeps the

residue still to himself, though the poor are starving through

lack of the necessaries of life. In a word, he is a man who gets

all he can, saves all he can, and keeps all he has gotten. Speak,

reason! Speak, conscience! (for God has already spoken) Can

such a person enter into the kingdom of God? ALL, NO!!!
