230. Depends upon how you interpret it. Maybe which translation, too.

There are definitely things about charity and giving to the poor, but that's a slightly different take on the subject.

The bit about a rich man having a harder time getting into heaven than a camel has going through the eye of a needle does not, IMO, say the rich are doomed to hell. Rather, it's more like "You can't take it with you," IMO.

As I said. Depends on your interpretation, which tends to depend upon your worldview.
