The eye of the needle ridiculous argument (Matthew 19:24)

"Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter ​the kingdom of God." - Matthew 19:24

For some reason in reading through the gospels for my most recent class I was annoyed by a sermon I heard on this verse years ago. Many of you may have heard the "a needle was a small gate that a camel could get on its knees and barely squeeze through" argument. I actually heard a guy preach this sermon. I was young at the time and I remember thinking the guy was a total maroon[sic].

Anyhow. Verse 26 clearly states Jesus' intention "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible."

If Jesus is talking about something that can be done it's just really really hard, why does he then go on to say "With man this is impossible?" Simple. Because Jesus is actually talking about a very large animal fitting through a needle used for sewing.

With God this is actually possible.

Cool. While preachers can sometimes be morons (I'm sure I'll make my doozie of mistakes in my time), God can do anything. Among with is that God can use dinkus pastors with their dinkus understandings of the Bible to speak things into our lives that change us. Don't ask me how. It seems impossible to me.
