God is a Capitalist
God Is a Capitalist
The Bible says, “Thou shalt not steal” (Ex.20: 15). And “Thou shalt not remove thy neighbour’s landmark” (Deut. 19: 14). And “Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing that is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth” (Eph.4: 28).
Capitalism is a “system where production is dominated by private ownership.” America is still, at least at the time of this writing, a capitalistic nation. That means the person and property of an individual is protected by law. Also the rights of the individual to do what they will with their property are protected.
God is a capitalist in the way that He puts into law that what a person has worked for and acquired not be taken from him. He demands that the people respect the persons’ personal property (Deut. 22: 1-3). This means the individual citizen as well as the government has no right to take someone’s private property.
God is a capitalist in the way that He gives man a free will and allows him to make his own choices regarding himself and his family (Deut.30: 19, 20; Josh.24:15-28; 1 Sam.15: 1-35; 1 Kgs.18: 21-40; Pro.8:1-21; Is.1:18-20; 2 Pet.2: 4).
God is a capitalist in the way that He declares a worker should be rewarded for his work (Deut.25: 4; 1 Cor.9: 9; 1 Tim.5: 18). If one man works harder than another, the one should be paid more than the other (Col.4: 1). In capitalism there’s equal opportunity but not equal results.
God is a capitalist in the way He declares that if a person who can work refuses to work, then he shouldn’t be taken care of by everyone else (2 Thess.3: 10). But at the same time He says that those who can’t work be taken care of (Is.1: 17; Jams.1: 27).
Any people, nation, government that establishes itself on the Bible (KJV) will be capitalist in nature, as America is.
Socialism is “the practice of public ownership of means of production and distribution.” It “is a Marxist doctrine, the stage of society coming between the capitalist and the communist stages.” In other word’s socialism is the enemy of capitalism and paves the way for communism.
Socialism “is as much an ethical as an economic discipline; its theories are in part formed out of a preconceived utopian dream in which all men are economically equal and live in the midst of abundance.”
Early socialist like Saint-Simon, Fourier, and Robert Owen were labeled “Utopians” by socialist Karl Marx.
Their attempt at socialism in America and elsewhere failed.
Fourierism failed when tried at the Brook Farm and Oneida in the 1830’s and ‘40’s. Owen went bankrupt after his ventures in capitalist socialism at New Harmony, Indiana. Louis Blanc of France concept of government financed socialism, turned out to be a huge financial dole that almost bankrupted the government. And then there’s Russia, China, Cuba and Venezuela.
Socialism is an oppressive form of government. With socialism the capitalist class is abolished and the wealthy have their wealth taken (stolen) away without them receiving any compensation. Once socialist (communist) come into power all political opposition is suppressed by whatever means necessary. All citizens are disarmed. All obligations of the former government are dismissed and the Constitution no longer respected and upheld.
Socialist (communist) are atheist, humanist, globalist, progressivist, and for the most part in America, the Democrats in Washington. Any form of government therefore that is not capitalist in nature is a form of government that rejects God’s ideal for government and will not receive His blessings
Those who say they want a socialist form of government have no idea what they’re talking about. Socialism is a utopian dream that ends up becoming a train wreck.
