Capitalism, Socialism, & Christianity

“Thou shalt not covet” means that it is wrong even to think about taking what rightfully belongs to another person, which is something socialists have never been able to explain away.

Envy, a central aspect of covetousness, involves not only the desire to possess another person’s property, but also to see another person’s wealth or station reduced to everyone else’s level.

Socialism, through its employment of the coercive powers of the state for the purpose of expropriating the income and wealth of one group to transfer to another, is a form of institutionalized envy, covetousness, and theft."

Capitalism, Socialism, & Christianity

Thou Shalt not covet the neighbor's [stuff].

 Love thy neighbor (even the rich ones) as thyself.

Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.

- God

Socialism is unbiblical and immoral by definition.

Thank you so much for commenting! I love to talk to my readers.

I do ask that there be no anonymous commenters, though. If I am brave enough to put my name on this blog, you should be too:-)

Please keep it civil. Remember we are all human and make mistakes, and that since we can't see each other's faces or hear each other's tone of voice, it is very hard to get the emotion in what we are saying each other. Use lots of emoticons! :-) And show grace and love to each other.
