Bo Sanchez’s Truly Rich Financial Seminar (Part 1 – Money and Religion)

Last weekend, my wife and I went to attend Bo Sanchez’s Truly Rich Seminar.  It was an amazing experience meeting Bo face to face.  Bo Sanchez is a preacher who talks about money.  You can learn more about his Truly Rich Seminar here.

Looking at Bo’s eyes, It seemed like he was tired the night before.  But what amazed me was how he still managed to give himself, share stories, make people laugh and more importantly, reconcile faith in God and money.  I learned a lot during the seminar and I wanted to share some of those things to you.  This is part 1 (Money and Religion) of the series of posts in the coming weeks.

Money and Religion

One thing that amazed me was how Bo reconciled the mindset of religion and the seemingly evil world of money.  As the famous verse (Mark 10:25) in the bible says,

“It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the kingdom of God.”

Watching a camel go through the hole of a needle is literally impossible.  And if this is easier than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God, then there is really NO WAY for a rich man to be holy and go to heaven!  That would be like asking what’s more impossible than impossible?  Who then would want to be rich?! 🙂

Looking at the same verse on its true context, according to Bo, the same expression “the eye of a needle” was actually an idiomatic expression by the Jews during the time of Jesus.  When the words “the eye of a needle” was spoken some 2000++ years ago, every one KNEW what it meant.  It meant only one thing — “the door to the house of the camel”, which was both very low, and very tiny.  For a rich man’s camel to enter the door, the rich man and his camel have to do two things: 1) the merchant must bring down all baggage that the camel is carrying, then 2) the camel has to stoop down to enter through the tiny door.  This symbolizes the act of surrendering everything to God, recognizing that everything comes from him, and most importantly, to stoop down, being humble to recognize that there is a more powerful force in this world, that is God.

If that’s the case, then I still have a fighting chance to go to heaven! I can be at peace being rich and holy at the same time.  Now that’s something! 🙂

If you’re based outside the Philippines and unable to attend the Truly Rich seminar, you can Join the Truly Rich Club!
