Exodus 30:15 -"The Rich shall not give more, and the poor shall not give
less than half a shekel, when they give an offering unto the Lord, to
make an atonement for your souls"
God is not out to oust us. Believe it or not, hell was not made for
humanity. It is his will that none, NO ONE, should perish. It is when we
surrender to his will of atonement for mankind, that we can lay claim
to the result of salvation.
God is the same, yesterday, today, and tomorrow- his principles do not
change. Even in the old testament He wanted to ensure a level ground for
all to afford atonement. With the sacrifice of His earthly form, he
reconciled the world to himself, leveled the field, and made the
acceptance of atonement through grace, without excuse.
The rich can not buy their way in, and the poor are not an exception.
Everyone must begin their journey of salvation the same place- at the
foot of the cross. The price has been paid.

gospel to, must be, "what must I do?"
Peter under God's inspiration replied : Acts 2:38
"Repent, and be baptized everyone of you in the name of Jesus Christ for
the remission of sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy
No More and No Less than the greatest or the least of us.
"Beloved, I wish above all things that you may prosper and be in good
health, even as thy soul continually prospers" 1 John 3:2
