Would you agree that money has become and idol for more than 50% of Americans (i.e. "Gotta go chase that paper, etc)?

What is the most wealth Jesus is alleged to have owned? His robe? Sandals?

I don't know if it's fifty percent. I wouldn't call wanting to support your family as best as you can an idol but I would agree it is a much larger one them it used to be. No matter if your on the earning side of the taking side. When it gets to the point of just wanting to see your bank account goo up another comma I would say it's getting to the point of being a idol

Fair enough, but surely your strong Christian convictions over-ride your sense holding on to your wealth?  (Just playing devil's advocate here, as you've made it abundantly clear that Jesus and YHWH over-ride everything else in you life)

Matthew 19:21-23

"21Jesus said to him, "If you wish to be complete, go and sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me." 22But when the young man heard this statement, he went away grieving; for he was one who owned much property. 23And Jesus said to His disciples, "Truly I say to you, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven."

you're taking that story way out of context.Jesus was teaching about idols and how to not let them control of your life. the story was using money as an example as a parable not a set in stone at that you needed to do to be a Christian. He told the young man to give them all of his money because that's what meant the most to the young man.in today's world he could of told someone to give up all of his cars. Its the same story.
