English Riches at the Expense of the Soul Lead to Eternal Damnation
Oct 21, 2004
The archbishop of Lagos Archdiocese, Anthony Cardinal Olubunmi Okogie said recently, that storing up earthly treasures at the expense of one's soul is like building a castle in the air adding human beings are pilgrims on earth who must give account of their earthly sojourn someday.

(Source unknown, Aug. 12 2004) The cardinal said storing up earthly treasures at the expense of the soul will lead to eternal damnation at last, adding that if this must be avoided, people must both resist the spirit of greed and also watch the kinds of friends they keep because many people have been led astray by bad friends.

The Cardinal emphasised that good and hard work are always rewarded if not by man it will certainly be by God, noting that what ever any one sows in the world, he will reap it from God.
