    As soon as the alien is a few feet away from Bob's father, the boy grabs the one full oil can, races over to the alien, pours oil over it, and lights it on fire. The eye of the needle is in fact not only narrow, but only tall enough for a human to get through. We must know that God can either expand the eye of the needle or shrink the camel. These questions go to the heart of Brown's thesis.

    Where the situation demands, she should be firm; and have the courage to explain and seek to convince others of the correctness of decisions taken by constitutional structures even if such decisions are unpopular. It is a magnificent achievement. By the time it has figured out enough of what goes on inside a human being to look through Bob's eyes, it is shocked to find itself within an air vessel, being carried further away from its quarry every second. This allows for individual delegates, regions or provinces to put forward names of those they deem capable but could not emerge through the nomination process.

    So it was nigh impossible for the act to happen. Yet by the fall of Rome, the church was becoming rich beyond measure. He is as likely to humble himself before God as a camel is to crawl through the eye of a needle. And it's not only the rich holding on to his or possessions. Brown's intimate knowledge of Augustine and his times is presented with human empathy and a sense of the relevance of these long-ago events It would appear to me that he is using a memorable metaphor about how difficult it is for a rich man to enter heaven, not referencing a specific gate in Jerusalem.
