    A Bibically based discussion and politically

    Post by Susan on Mon Jul 25, 2016 11:42 am

    I always seek GOD's WORD when there are hard questions that need answering before making a decision.

    This year's election has some hard questions that need to be answered.

    Webster's Dictionary Definitions:

    Full Definition of socialism
    1
    : any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods
    2
    a : a system of society or group living in which there is no private property
    b : a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state
    3
    : a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done.

    Full Definition of capitalism
    : an economic system characterized by private or corporate ownership of capital goods, by investments that are determined by private decision, and by prices, production, and the distribution of goods that are determined mainly by competition in a free market.

    So, socialism takes what you own from you and gives it to others.

    Capitalism belives in a free market where you keep what you own.

    What does the BIBLE say about Socialism? A lot of people claim JESUS was a Socialist. There are people who claim JESUS was a communist. There are people who believe everything we have comes from GOD, and it overflows through our free will giving to others. I will start by listing one verse from the 10 Commandments.

    Exodus 20:15 (KJV)

    15 Thou shalt not steal.

    This video will sum up the verse above.

    Some people only look at what will benefit them. Without looking at what both sides are really offering us.

    Let's look:

    My question is which is right? What are your thoughts?

    Please take your time reading through some of the Scriptural evidence, before commenting.
