Phil Robertson Condemns Gays, But Jesus Condemned the Rich

Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty is said to be very concerned about preventing gays from going to hell. That's why he uses coarse macho language to describe their behavior.

When is Evangelist Phil going to show that same evangelical zeal for the wealthy?

Since Phil belongs to that category, at least right at this moment he seems to, I guess we won't be hearing much concern about the eternal destiny of the wealthy.

Matthew 19:21-24

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."

But when the young man heard this statement, he went away grieving; for he was one who owned much property.

And Jesus said to His disciples, "Truly I say to you, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven.

"Again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God."

Yet the bible also says through God all things are possible and we see king Solomon who God blessed with riches and yet he went to heaven. All that verse is saying is that it is easier for the poor man to get in heaven because they have less things to turn away from unlike the rich who to follow The Lord truly would have to be servants and "sink" down and help the needy because they don't want to leave their place of higher power
