Does G-d really care if you own a Mercedes?

Does G-d really care if you have a PHD in your education? Does G-d really care if you have millions of dollars in your bank account? Does G-d really care if you ask intellegent questions to your preacher? Does G-d really care what kind of car you drive? Does G-d really care who your neighbours are?

I assume you are Christian What kind of Christian can't even spell the word God? But according to the bible, yes, he would care that you are being so greedy while others around you are starving and living on the streets. And if you are talking about those televangelists, they don't believe in any god but money

Judy, your kinda wrong, why would our Father bless some with so much? Yo can have these things yes and hes happy to give them to you. The idea is giving back to our Fathers purpose, and advancing his kingdom. Why was David so blessed or any of the other kings or mentions in the bible? Solomon was the riches man on earth, was he wrong for being so? he had wealth beyond beliefs, the amount of chariots and horses he had would be liek me owning more than a hundred mercadies. WOuld i be sinfull? no, but if i horderd everything i had yes i would be. We can have, bu twe also must give, there is a deifferance, We dont need to be poor to be a child of our Father do we?

Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me. Mark 10:21 all the best urban

I think whoever created us (no offense. That is meant as our respective gods) wants us to do right by others and make the world a better place. I don't think a truly loving God would penalize us for being wealthy and not giving away everything we work hard for, but I think even those of us who are not spiritual or religious should try to do good for mankind. If you can afford to drive that Mercedes are you also doing at least something to help those less fortunate? I don't know about the preacher question, but I think god only cares how you treat your neighbors and that you encourage others to do right and try your best to do right yourself.
