Religious Paradox

I'm [re]realizing something about Christians, and religion in general. For all their preaching about how you shouldn't be into material objects and wealth, the very thing they appeal to is a material status.

For example, heaven is supposidly a place with roads paved with gold, large mansions, and you'll get a jewel in your crown for every person you win over in this pyramid/matrix scheme. At the same time, they preach having worldly goods is a Bad™ thing and everyone should strive not to have them in exchange for heavenly goods, which are described in ways of worldly goods. Except, when you tell this to a Christian (for example, my parents) they'll then reverse it by saying it is a coded message only understood by chosen people. Talk about a selective elite snob group.
