Socialism vs God's Word

Socialism vs God's Word

Is Socialism Consistent with God's Word?


There’s really no debate that our world, and definitely our country, seems to be on a speeding locomotive headed to a One World Socialist/Marxist society.


But if that’s the case, is Socialism/Marxism really that bad? Is it against the teachings of God’s Word?


Dr. David Jeremiah answered this question in a recent teaching saying “the Bible lays out many economic principles that point us awayfrom socialist concepts.” Then he listed the following points to show us why Socialism/Marxism is not consistent with Scripture:


  • There is dignity in work - Ephesians 4:28 


  • Trust God’s ability to provide through the local church - Luke 10:7


  • Laziness should not be tolerated - 2 Thessalonians 3:10


  • Scripture affirms providing for our families and saving for the future - Proverbs 13:22


  • Thrift is encouraged - Proverbs 21:20


  • The Lord expects us to be wise stewards of the resources He gives us - Matthew 25:27


  • We have a right to protect our private property and seek restitution when it is stolen - Exodus 22:7


  • Private property is an asset that we can use for the benefit of God’s people - Acts 4:34-37


  • Scripture teaches us to respect the personal property of others - Exodus 20:15


  • We should be content with what we have, even if others have more - Exodus 20:17


As followers of Jesus we want to make sure we support that which is consistent with God’s Word and stand against that which is not.
