Is Socialism My Way?

Note to all my valuable email subscribers: my previous post was, let’s say for simplicity, a mistake.  I hit “publish” instead of “preview” before this post was finished.  Hey, almost no one is perfect! (and see, you get to see MORE when you subscribe!)

Socialism.

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could all just share?  Of course it would be.  In fact, wouldn’t it be better if we could all just own everything together, which would have the practical effect of nobody owning anything?  Of course it would be.

Right?

To think otherwise must be the epitome of selfishness.

Right?

Listen, my servants, we have work to do.  Too many of my readers were not nodding when I asked the questions above.  Some are confused.  Many think it’s a trick question.  But we need to work to convince everyone, especially the Godpunks around the world that socialism is God’s ism.

Don’t people know that in the book of Acts in the Bible (blechhh!) the early disciples lived in a commune and had all things in common?

Don’t people know that Jesus himself (blechhh! blechhhh!) instructed his followers to give to those who ask?

Don’t people know that Jesus himself (excuse me . . . BLECHHH!) personally instructed a rich man who had kept the law of righteousness that eternal life is his only if he will give away all his possessions to the poor?

It appears to me, my friends, that socialism is Gods Way.

Why then, do I read on blogs like Black Quill & Ink something otherwise?  This is just one blog of many I could cite, but this one particularly got my attention because this blogger specifically attributes socialism to moi!

The nerve!

In a post entitled “Socialism — Satan’s Economic Model”, the BQI blogger ragged on me, including this un-Jesusical statement:

I believe that socialism has consistently failed because it is an evil concept that is against all of what God has planned for man. It is representative of the age long struggle of “good” vs “evil” God and His benevolence against Satan and his destruction.

Evil concept?  Maybe socialism has failed because YOU didn’t give everything you own to the poor!  Did you ever think about that?

But what really bugs me is that the BQI bloggomeddleifier goes further, and shows that he is on to me.  I’ll tell you why in a later post, my servants, but this dude continued, speaking of America as the “one beacon” against socialism:

Now in the climatic struggle for mankind, the concept of good vs evil, Satan has launched his last major attack on the one beacon of God’s glory and what God wants for man and that is freedom and individualism.

Ouch!

This kind of truth-telling can’t stand, my servants.

Before I explain my lie of socialism in the next post, I’m calling on all my friends and servants to respond in the comment section below with one good reason that BQI can maintain this position in light of my Biblically sound proposition proven above that socialism is , in fact, God’s Way.

I need as many reasons as I can muster to counter the “socialism is evil” arguments of Godpunks.  I’ve given three scripture references above.  But there must be more that can be said.  Help me out here, folks.

Respond below — is socialism Gods’ Way or My Way?  And stay tuned for my response soon.

Ha ha ha ha ha.

  1. Satan, you are almost Obamaesque in your Utopianism! Didn’t I see you out there protesting Wall Street greed?

  2. Dear Satan,

    For Catholics, today is St. Francis of Assisi day. He was especially moved by Matthew 10, 7-19, when Christ says:
    “As you go, make this proclamation: ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Cure the sick, raise the dead, cleanse lepers, drive out demons. Without cost you have received; without cost you are to give. Do not take gold or silver or copper for your belts; no sack for the journey, or a second tunic, or sandals, or walking stick. The laborer deserves his keep…”

    Well, it seems that besides leaving riches the Christians must drive out demons. They, the demons, used to make some comments using the Gospel.

    You did that. Well, to answer your question I would consider Matthew 22,21 (give back to Caesar…) and The Letter to Philemon (I am sending back Onesimus…). The Kingdom of God is here but it not from here.

    I am waiting your answer to see how far I am from you.

    Quite simply, socialism is about “taking”, not about “giving”. In fact it seems to be pretty much at odds with personal giving. God gave us talents to do creative work, gave us land and plants and animals to have stewardship over, and expects us to use these to do His will or something. Any system that says your work and your property is to be confiscated because of the envy of others, and put to use to serve the will of whoever was unscrupulous enough to make it into the inner circle of the ruling Party, seems like something you’d support, Satan.

    I think the danger in the other direction is that sometimes we forget that our talents and our property are on loan from God, and that He will one day ask us to report on what we made of them. Thus, extreme libertarianism may also be your doing. Crafty.

  4. You are always working to destroy civilizations based on worship of a higher power more powerful than you. This has been your method ever since you convinced Eve that Adam should taste the apple. This battle will be waged as long as their are human beings on this earth. Capitalism, Socialism, Communism, Facism, etc. are mere methods by which self-centered people chose to play the game of life!

  5. Very briefly, those things which God asks of us must be done voluntarily – or else they are meaningless. Socialism is a form of government and, even though it can be disguised as utopia, it is actually a “forced” charity, etc. God meant for us to be free in every way – even so much as giving us the free will to reject Him. But, we also must be “free” to do as He asks.

    Socialism has never proved to operate effectively in the “world” because of humans’ propensity towards sin.

    Yes, we give Caesar’s what belongs to him but all of what we own belongs to God. Jesus never said to give everything we own to a governing body so we could follow Him.

  6. It can be shown that socialism is false because, in Christianity, THE INDIVIDUAL does the charity, while in socialism, people are forced to GIVE TO THE STATE so that the STATE (not the individual) does the “charity”.

    When the LORD JESUS say give to the poor, HE did not say “give the money to your politicians so that they can give to the poor”.

    HE said YOU take YOUR money, and YOU give it to the poor VOLUNTARLY.

    That is why socialism is a satanic deception.

  7. Well, DB, here are some thoughts that occured to me about socialism and you.
    The first is from Acts 5 (actually right where you left off from “The believers had everything in common.”) Ananias and Sapphiria (two of yours, the scriptures indicate) had some property and sold it and gave part of the profit to the apostles, saying that it was ALL they got for the property. At firts glance, this seems to support socialism as something God likes. Except for ONE little verse: verse 4. Peter tells the lying Ananias that the property was his to sell or keep. And once Ananias decided to sell it, the money was his to give away or keep.

    The second is 2 Corinthians 9, particularly verses 5 and 7. Paul is talking about giving money to the believers in Jerusalem who had fallen on hardship. Again, this seems to support socialism. But then Paul seems to take a 90-degree turn and says he wants this to be a “gift and not an extraction.” He said each must make up his own mind to give. And then to give cheerfully, not reluctantly or because its expected. A gift given because it’s expected or demanded brings no joy to the giver nor recipient.

  8. Jesus did, in fact, tell us to feed the poor and clothe the naked, and take care of widows and orphans; but never did he tell us to steal from someone else to do so. We are to give out of the abundance that God has given to us. Two of the Big Ten speak to this:

    You shall not steal.

    You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s.

    And don’t forget the Parable of the Good Samaritan:

    Then Jesus answered and said: “A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, who stripped him of his clothing, wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead. Now by chance a certain priest came down that road. And when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. Likewise a Levite, when he arrived at the place, came and looked, and passed by on the other side. But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was. And when he saw him, he had compassion. So he went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine; and he set him on his own animal, brought him to an inn, and took care of him. On the next day, when he departed, he took out two denarii, gave them to the innkeeper, and said to him, ‘Take care of him; and whatever more you spend, when I come again, I WILL REPAY YOU.’

    We, personally, are to take responsibility to meet the needs of others; not sanction our government to STEAL on our behalf to put on the guise of charity.
