I see now why Jesus said that a rich man cannot go in heaven

"Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through an eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdome of God" Matthew 19:24

It's not that rich people cannot be good Christians, it's just that he made sure they don't turn his teaching into profit, property, and sensation indulgent samsaric schooling of how to drink beer in Vegas without a remorse. I'm talking about this one specificly https://m.youtube.com/#/watch?v=OUyBd-iQN5A .

Vimalakirti is according to Wikipedia upasaka and is not worshiped like Avalokiteshvara but M.David says he is a bodhisattva who also was rich, gambling, etc. I don't think being a bodhisattva works that way.
