Vatican and Wealth


The new deadly sins include ...being obscenely rich...


Quote taken from FoxNews article entitled: Vatican Adds Seven New Deadly Sins Including Abortion, Contraception and Drug-Dealing

Wonder if the Vatican's position on wealth applies to Abrahan, King Solomon, or even to God himself?

It's not the blessing or position of wealth that's sinful, but other things associated with wealth that can be sinful such as an inordinate desire for wealth, unrighteous attitudes and behavior to attain, keep, or hoard wealth; unrighteous management or use of wealth, etc. However, simply to possess a great deal of wealth is not sinful in itself.
