A life of ease demands more. "go and sell everything you have and give to the poor.". A life of ease is too easy. God would almost rather they had problems and he could address them or that they were persecuted so that he could comfort them, but a life of ease. . .? It simply is much harder to reach them (think the camel through the eye of a needle). There is nothing of internal or external sin that had not been addressed (only a lack of love due to ease and prosperity).
The cure was to buy gold and clothe themselves. Does that sound like judging to you?
