Luke 18:18-30 Why do you call me good?

The idea of changing the camel to a rope or the eye of a needle to a small door is to create the impression that you can gain eternal life if you simply pack light. Instead of having a big caravan connected to the Toyota land cruiser, you have a small trailer attached to a mini. Or you imagine a man having to take his back pack off to crawl through a hole. In the end you create the possibility of getting in but without any material possessions. Thus, the rich man can’t get in but the poor man can! Still this type of interpretation, which is all too common, is faulty! What it does is elevate our ability to gain eternal life, while in actual fact we have no ability to gain eternal life.
