Why does the Bible hate Rich People so much?

I thought I was reading some Pinko Karl Marx manifesto for a moment and not the New Testament.

Can someone enlighten me?

The bible didn't hate rich people, your presumption made it so. With thousands of verses, Bible can be interpreted any way you wished. When you expected to see a Karl Marx manifesto, you'll only read verses supporting that view point and discard anything contradicting.

While the verses you read seem to suggest being rich is a undesirable, the contradicting verses below even suggest God gave riches to Solomon:

2Ch 1:12 Wisdom and knowledge is granted unto thee; and I (God) will give thee riches, and wealth, and honor, such as none of the kings have had that have been before thee, neither shall there any after thee have the like.
1Ki 10:23 So king Solomon exceeded all the kings of the earth for riches and for wisdom.

The bible does not hate rich people. Rich is not the problem, but trusting only in the riches is the problem.

Mr 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!
