Does The Bible Support Socialism?

October 1, 2009

Does God endorse socialism as his preferred economic model?

It is very easy to see that God wants us all to be Socialists. In today’s study we will open our Bibles and see how God has provided a clear answer to this question.

Somehow many of today’s Christians somehow have mistaken impression that Capitalism is the economic system that Christ would most endorse. Any examination of God’s holy Word will easily show that this simply isn’t true. Our heroes from the days of old endear themselves to Socialism, and it shows us that God’s love for us can shine even through economics. There is no doubt that the concepts of Socialism permeates both the Old and New Testaments. I have no idea where these false ideas of Capitalism being what God would want came from. As his children, we must end this! We must study his Word deeply and set straight the mindset of our fellow brethren.

So to get started, let us open up His Holy Word and learn what the Bible has to say on economics. We will begin in the Old Testament.

Leviticus 25:35-38
35If one of your countrymen becomes poor and is unable to support himself among you, help him as you would an alien or a temporary resident, so he can continue to live among you. 36Do not take interest of any kind from him, but fear your God, so that your countryman may continue to live among you. 37You must not lend him money at interest or sell him food at a profit. 38I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt to give you the land of Canaan and to be your God.
