When did Jesus say wealthy people aren't good . Being wealthy isn't bad. It's how you use that wealth that determines it.... king David was rich and he was beloved in the eyes of God.. still rich... sooo

Here’s a challenge. Find me a single passage anywhere in the New Testament that has anything positive to say about rich people, or even a singular wealthy person.

I can find these, though:

Luke 6: 24-26

24 “But woe to you who are rich,
   for you have received your consolation.
25 “Woe to you who are full now,
   for you will be hungry.
“Woe to you who are laughing now,
   for you will mourn and weep.“

Luke 1: 52-53:

“He has brought down the powerful from their thrones,
   and lifted up the lowly;
53 he has filled the hungry with good things,
   and sent the rich away empty.

Luke 16: 19-31:

19 “There was a rich man who was dressed in purple and fine linen and who feasted sumptuously every day.  20 And at his gate lay a poor man named Lazarus, covered with sores,  21 who longed to satisfy his hunger with what fell from the rich man’s table; even the dogs would come and lick his sores.  22 The poor man died and was carried away by the angels to be with Abraham.[g] The rich man also died and was buried.  23 In Hades, where he was being tormented, he looked up and saw Abraham far away with Lazarus by his side.[h]  24 He called out, ‘Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue; for I am in agony in these flames.’  25 But Abraham said, ‘Child, remember that during your lifetime you received your good things, and Lazarus in like manner evil things; but now he is comforted here, and you are in agony.  26 Besides all this, between you and us a great chasm has been fixed, so that those who might want to pass from here to you cannot do so, and no one can cross from there to us.’  27 He said, ‘Then, father, I beg you to send him to my father’s house—  28 for I have five brothers—that he may warn them, so that they will not also come into this place of torment.’  29 Abraham replied, ‘They have Moses and the prophets; they should listen to them.’  30 He said, ‘No, father Abraham; but if someone goes to them from the dead, they will repent.’  31 He said to him, ‘If they do not listen to Moses and the prophets, neither will they be convinced even if someone rises from the dead.’”

Mark 10: 23-25:

23 Then Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, “How hard it will be for those who have wealth to enter the kingdom of God!”  24 And the disciples were perplexed at these words. But Jesus said to them again, “Children, how hard it is[b] to enter the kingdom of God!  25 It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.”

James 5: 1 - 6:

“5 Come now, you rich people, weep and wail for the miseries that are coming to you.  2 Your riches have rotted, and your clothes are moth-eaten.  3 Your gold and silver have rusted, and their rust will be evidence against you, and it will eat your flesh like fire. You have laid up treasure[a] for the last days.  4 Listen! The wages of the laborers who mowed your fields, which you kept back by fraud, cry out, and the cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of hosts.  5 You have lived on the earth in luxury and in pleasure; you have fattened your hearts in a day of slaughter.  6 You have condemned and murdered the righteous one, who does not resist you.“

Wealthy people being evil is like a central theme of the New Testament. It is all over the place. The only way for a wealthy person to be righteous according to the New Testament is to give away all of their wealth - and then, they wouldn’t be wealthy anymore.

Essentially, the only good wealthy people are ex-wealthy people.

Canonical Facts About Jesse McCree

requested by @homestuckdumpingsite


This is a fact corroborated by Pharah in the same photo

She’s five years younger than Mercy or Mccree but looks to be a child in this picture where they are clearly older teens. So Pharah here would have been about 12 years old. McCree looks like an adult. He’s well built and tall and his shoulders are more similar to the much older members. An argument could be made for a 12-15 year old Pharah, but that still just means McCree would have looked grown even in his late teens. His Overwatch info lists him as 38 but his official release as 37, which means Gabe possibly falsified his age to get him into Blackwatch. 

Also, I’ve seen a lot of boys who look like full grown men despite being in their mid to late teens, so it’s not a stretch that a young man like McCree who’s been fighting since childhood would have grown big enough to give that impression.


Ironically, despite Gabriel Reyes being of canonical Spanish descent, Mccree is more likely the spanish speaker, given his origins in Santa Fe New Mexico. He also speaks a few words of it in the Trainhopper comic, 

and is seen drunk in a bar in Dorado. 

Apart from the fact that NOT knowing Spanish in a gang in Santa Fe and a bar frequented by questionable people in Dorado would have likely killed him faster, his ties to Blackwatch probably allowed him to learn multiple languages. If not, Spanish would have been the most convenient for him to learn. 


This is more of a fan theory but it has several backing facts, such as the fact that McCree has a voice line: Don’t know what you heard, but my name’s not Joel. Best remember that. Joel was his placeholder name before the reveal of characters, Morricone is a name referencing Ennio Morricone, who composed for multiple Westerns (Westerns from whom Mccree’s whole Cowboy vibe was based on). Also his background says he went underground but recently resurfaced which either means he just laid low for many years or he had a cover identity to hide behind. Also him being present in Hanamura while Mccree saved a ramen shop is an interesting coincidence. 


Always was a good shot, but I got a few pointers from the best. That’d be your mother.

It’s an honor fighting by your side, ma'am.


You weren’t given those guns to toss ‘em around like trash.


This is shown especially in the Train Hopper comic. 


The fact that he dumps a suspicious payload off a cargo train instead of contacting anybody, and the fact that the in fighting in Overwatch made him leave instead of picking a side means that McCree has a heroic idealism which, with his past as a criminal, is something he values over bureaucracy or larger plots. Over his own reputation. His heroism is very pure in its form, very old Hollywood hero or vigilante in style. 

For all his gunslinging heroism however, he’s got a very sedate personality, probably as a result of past pains that he’s learned to let go of in favor of helping those he can and living his life. 

He’s got a good sense of humor and a charming wit (as seen in his voice lines), but isn’t particularly silly or goofy. He’s more like a Clint Eastwood Cowboy – irreverent and rough but ultimately cool and collected. 

He’s never been rich or refined, as seen in his interactions with Hanzo and his line in the comic:

but that just means he’s humble and knows how to rough it and survive on basics and bare necessities. 

And finally, a personal opinion based on canon: 

McCree very likely chose to don the “silly Cowboy getup” because it was his more visual way of portraying his switch from criminal to hero–albeit a vigilante hero. 

He may already have worn the hat because it’s common enough in New Mexico as a cultural thing, but the whole getup, serape, boots and all

Is meant to portray him as what he wants to be. A vigilante hero, rather than a criminal. A character that he portrays, but also his goal in life. 

Which I think, for all that he talks like a grizzled older man, is a very optimistic way of him to act, to show just how much being a hero means to him. 

I know that Overwatch did their best to erase Gabriel from the public narrative of Overwatch because of his job in Blackwatch, but I know in my heart of hearts that if one of their own was at all responsible for ending the robot apocalypse, the city of Los Angeles would never shut up about it.

There would be murals of him painted EVERYWHERE in the city: Next to Caesar Chavez, with Tupac and Kendrick Lamar lyrics underneath, highly stylized cartoon graffiti, ironic pop art. Everywhere.

Several someones are in a coffee shop writing the screen play to a movie about him or as a cameo in their Omnic Crisis action comedy.

The Latinx community in the city would be so proud and would never let anyone forget that the reason you’re not dead is because of one of them.

LA rappers dropping his name in rhymes when identifying themselves as proud LA natives. Rude cover band names like “The Gabriel Reyes Sex Machines”.

Gallery exhibits dedicated entirely to him.

Morning talk radio unapologetically shading the hell out of Jack Morrison because of their relentless staning for their native son.

Children dressing up like him for their school presentations, leading to an entire generation of college students leaving home and saying “how have you never heard of Gabriel Reyes??”

Every single Reyes in the City having to qualify that they’re not related to him or lie that they are. Except Gabe’s  actual entire extended family that come out of the woodwork and have bragging rights
