Socialism is the Antithesis to Christianity
Socialism belongs to Satan. It is where greed overtakes love, and self is exalted to the position of God. It is the ultimate “Me” movement.
Socialism violates the Eight and Tenth Commandments, respectively-- Thou shall not steal; and Thou shall not covet thy neighbor’s goods!
The fake compassion from those espousing socialism does not come from God but from Satan. There is no legitimacy in socialism. It is founded on the “Robin Hood” principle—steal from those who have and give to those who don’t! The Eighth Commandment forbids us to steal for any reason. Stealing from someone who works hard and giving to someone who doesn’t or doesn’t have enough is a mortal sin. This encourages the recipients to be more slothful and envious of other people’s possession. It does not help anyone except to make others more sinful.
It is up to us to make a decision to share the fruits of our labor with others. It is our prerogative to share our blessings with a less fortunate person. God has given us a free will to choose. If we choose to share what we have, God will bless us even more abundantly and reward us for our kindness. That is the way God intended it to be from the very beginning. Trying to be God and changing this is only going to bring disaster. If it’s not from God, it is from Satan, and Satan never does anything for the good of mankind!
Socialism also defies the Tenth Commandment: Thou shall not covet thy neighbor’s goods. It is a mortal sin to covet someone else’s possessions. If you want it, then earn it. Taking from someone else will not satisfy your covetousness. You are not entitled to anyone else’s hard-earned money or property. If they can do it, you can, too. If you can’t, then be satisfied with what you have.
Socialism is an evil, failed ideologue that takes away the incentive for hard work, competition, and enthusiasm. It breeds the sins of sloth and envy, and makes everyone equally miserable. Look no further than Venezuela and other failing and ailing socialist countries.
The only people who champion the cause are the power hungry, greedy, entitled, lazy, and the covetous. The majority of Americans are good, hardworking, competitive people. Let’s not destroy their future by being idle and allowing this evil cancer to take over our prosperous country.
