2nd Nephi 28:13-16

They rob the poor because of their fine sanctuaries; they rob the poor because of their fine clothing; and they persecute the meek and the poor in heart, because of their pride they are puffed up. They wear stiff necks and high heads; yea, and because of pride, and wickedness, and abominations, and whoredoms, they have all gone astray save it be a few, which are humble followers of Christ; nevertheless, they are led, that in many instances they do err because they are taught by the precepts of men. O the wise, and the learned, and the rich, that are puffed up in the pride of their hearts, and all they that preach false doctrines, and all they that commit whoredoms, and pervert the right way of the Lord, wo, wo, wo be unto them, saith the Lord God Almighty, for they shall be thrust down to hell! Wo unto them that turn aside the just for a thing of naught and revile against that which is good, and say that it is no worth! For the day shall come that the Lord God will speedily visit the inhabitants of the earth; and in that day that they are fully ripe in iniquity they shall perish.

Christianity of the world today is not what Christ left with he established his church. He did not teach that we need big fancy buildings, that we should only help out the poor at Christmas, or that if we give him a little of our money that we should be able to keep the excess. The people who follow this idea that God wants us to be rich are going to have a eye awaking experience in the future. We must remember that God wants us to be loved and to love others. Not collect earthly possessions.
