Just for the record, I think Finny is an example of a rich man who can get to heaven.
I stayed at his place recently over a weekend. He probably lives more simply than many people on this forum.
My bishop in AR used to say that he thinks that if a Christian receives a million dollar gift, his standard of living should not change at all. From what I can tell, Finny is a good example of this.
DD Davis is another multi-millionaire that I expect to see in heaven.http://www.johnwrinehart.com/the-patron ... zacharias/
Here’s what Davis's accountant said, “And it dawned on me that the first time Mr. Davis ever had a mansion of his own was the night he passed away.”
Finny's parents immigrated to the US two years before he was born. http://www.goodnewsforindia.org/about/leadership
Finny grew up in a very poor home. His dad had a vision for starting a church planting school in Northern India. Finny traveled with him back and forth to India in his teens as they were starting the school. Different people get different training in their homes. I learned how to raise animals and grow produce in my teens. Guess what I am doing today?
Finny himself once participated in a public debate with an atheist and a Buddhist. I think he filled in for Tim Keller who couldn't make the appointment.http://vimeo.com/9024779
Finny attended an Eastern church in MA for about four years, before moving his family back to Boston about 4 years ago.
