I just stick with the inspired words.....IMV if he meant a gate he would have said a gate.....
Mar 10:23 And Jesus looked round about, and saith unto his disciples, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!
Mar 10:24 And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus answereth again, and saith unto them, Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God!
Mar 10:25 It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
Mar 10:26 And they were astonished out of measure, saying among themselves, Who then can be saved?
Mar 10:27 And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.
Notice the words of Jesus, in regards trusting in riches (not that the riches themselves are what keeps a person out):
Vs 23, "How hardly ... enter ..."
Vs 24, "How hard it is ... to enter"
Vs 25, "It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle (needle's eye) ... to enter into"
Vs 26, "With men it is impossible"
Jesus said the same thing 4 times, so that the disciples would get it.
Laodicea is trusting in their own "riche", they are as that man, and as the man in Luke 16.
