The Searing Storm of Socialism

I find it fascinating that this country, after having been a democracy since its inception, is now on a fast-track to Socialism!  The absurdity of this is that there are people who actually believe that Socialism works!  This in spite of the fact that it has never worked anywhere in the world before.

Frankly, I think this is all a stunt to simply take what people earn and give to others.  It’s another form of Robin Hood, with Obama being Robin and he’s certainly taking what he can, in order to give to the “hood.”  In a short time, he has literally taken over many of the banking institutions, GM, as well as others, and now wants to create healthcare for everyone.  As more than one senator has asked, where is the money coming from to put this plan into action?  Obviously, it is coming from those of us who pay our taxes year in and year out.

What I also find interesting is that ever since Obama took office, not ONE peep has been heard from two of the most loudmouthed individuals representing the African American community.  That’s right, I speak of none other than Jackson and Sharpton.  Where have these guys been hiding?  Is it possible that the White House door has been open for them all the time?  If so, how has the press not found out about it?  Oh, that’s right, Obama doesn’t feel he needs to share that knowledge with the public, even though it is the public that owns the White House.  I realize Bush did this, but he wasn’t right either.

It is exceedingly interesting how fast and far left this country is moving.  However, when all is said and done, it is occurring only because God is directing things.  As a Christian, I am commissioned by God to pray for the leaders of this country and the world.  I have no fear that Obama will actually ruin anything.  What he accomplishes while in office will be what God ultimately wants accomplished and the reality is that as we move toward the final stage of the End Times, God’s designed ends will come to fruition.  Care to know what they are?  Read Daniel, Ezekiel and Revelation, or you can read “Footsteps of Messiah,” or “Return of the Antichrist,” by Patrick Heron.

    “If you know of an example where Socialism had a positive effect on a specific society, I would like to hear about it.” 42 And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.

    43 And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles.

    44 And all that believed were together, and had all things common;

    45 And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need.

    46 And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart,

    47 Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.

      Hi Jeremiah 17,

      Of course the one big difference here is that the example in Acts has absolutely nothing to do with government-sponsored socialism.

      As I mentioned, my church certainly takes care of its members and many churches do. The government is not the church though. People should be given the opportunity to decide for themselves who and how they will others who are less fortunate. The government should not be in the position of making decisions that remove the responsibility from the individual.

    What is it when a group of Christians sell or give all their belongings to each other whenever one has need, and have all things in common with each other?

      Hi Jeremiah 17,

      Thanks for your comment. What you’re referring to is love. In such a case, there exists a group of people who are voluntarily dependent upon one another and who mutually serve one another because of their love for one another and their love for Christ. My church is very good at this – not perfect, but very good – making certain that our widows have what they need and that they are visited and given rides to church when/if needed. We have a brotherly love fund from which members are helped financially when needed. We are a very small church, but we do what we can. The motivation for this is love.

      There is a huge difference between doing something voluntarily because there is a need and being forced to do it because the government thinks it’s a great idea. Normally, when these types of government policies are foisted upon the citizenry, those who work find little reason to continue, and those who do not work find little reason to start, even when able.

      It is not as if our government does not already have programs designed to help the needy. Beyond this, there are many, many charitable agencies as well.

      I cannot think of one place throughout history where Socialistic policies have reaped positive benefits. In fact, the policies of socialism have consistently failed. It can be difficult enough to do this in a church where people love one another. How much more difficult is it when people are expected to share the wealth with people they do not even know? It completely removes choice and becomes mandatory.

      If you know of an example where Socialism had a positive effect on a specific society, I would like to hear about it.

      Regards,
      Fred
