Will capitalists have a hard time entering into the kingdom of God?

And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. (Matthew 19:24 KJB)

    Capitalism promotes trade and entrepreneurship which exists in a free society.  No, not capitalists, but a rich man has a hard time getting into heaven.  A rich man will not always give up his way of life to help others and for this reason I appreciate President Trump.  A rich man often wants only to increase wealth and never to give of his wealth.  Many rich men have done a lot of good in this world.  Consider Scrooge, it tells the story well.

    I'd be careful. God warns very strongly about taking His word out of context, and misrepresenting the Bible. This is not at all what this verse means. Be careful. "Woe to those who add to or take away from this book."

    • Actually ancient Israel, the country that GOD set up, was more Capitalist than Socialist. People these days, like the OP, love to use the Bible without having actually studied it.

     1 Timothy 1:8-11  8Now we know that the Law is fine if one applies it properly,9recognizing that law is made, not for a righteous man, but for those who are lawless and rebellious, ungodly and sinners, disloyal and profane, murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, manslayers,10sexually immoral people, men who practice homosexuality, kidnappers, liars, perjurers, and everything else that is in opposition to the wholesome teaching11according to the glorious good news of the happy God, with which I was entrusted.

    Socialists will have an even harder time, since they steal what another man has earned.

    "thou shalt not steal"

    Since that was written God discovered that free enterprise creates jobs and opportunities for the poor and socialism just causes poverty.

    first, understand that the phrase is actually related to the material distractions that come with wealth....not to wealth itself as a moral failing...

    second, understand that the poorest in most capitalist nations have more affluence and access to material goods than the majority of folks did in bibliccal times....

    are you beginning to see the mirror hanging on the wall.....or do you still need to clean off all the finger smudges you've left on it from all your pointing?

    You have to unload your camel, squeeze through the Eye of the Needle gate, and then load up your camel again. So it takes time and effort, but it can be done.  If you were poor, you wouldn’t have any belongings or camel to futz with.
