I dunno about this.
I mean, are there any true
disciples? All Christians (by their own admission)
are flawed. All sucumb to temptation and sin.
I don't think that Judas's only god was money. I think he was a seed that fell on
rocky ground, shooting up but without a strong root. I think he initially had the best
of intentions, but under the mounting pressure against Jesus, fell from grace and
forwent the trust he had in Jesus.
Judas is only a little better than St Peter, who denied Jesus under the same
circumstances. Remember, all disciples ran when Jesus was arrested.
