Yes God is a Capitalist

Capitalism is Christian Communism is Demonic Yes God is a Capitalist! In 1848 Karl Marx published the Communist Manifesto. This Manifesto contained 10 conditions for the transition of a capitalist nation to a communist nation. Read these and see how far we have strayed from capitalism. The term capitalism was "coined" by Marx to describe a democracy that allowed for "free markets" to dictate price, supply, and demand.

Trivia: Marx was a Jew who hated Jews, George Sorros is a Jew who turned in Jews to the Nazis during WWII to save his own skin while living in Hungary. It seems Marx, Hitler, and Sorros - all megalomaniacs had a lot in common. They all desire totalitarian states which control every aspect of your lives from "cradle to career unto death" (One of Obama's recent comments is one of the final planks of the communist manifesto). Keep your eyes on George Sorros - he is the money behind and other anit-American movements that is trying to destroy our currency and democracy. They will cozy up to you and ostensibly align their platform with your passions only to take you into their confidence and eliminate any opposition to their cause of world conquest. Castro and Ernesto "Che" Guevara in Cuba killed more Cubans who didn't agree with their politics than Hitler and Stalin (per capita) - yet the young people of today think Guevara is cool. Guevara taught that man has to muster up as much hate as he can to smash the skulls of the emperialst Americans.

Later in this article you will read the history of socialism in the US during the days of colonization during the 17th century under William Bradford and how it miserably failed.

To digress for a moment: the gripe I most often hear from you students is "Crony Capitalism" and greed. Let me say that all forms of government have greedy individuals that "game" the system, especially the card carrying socialists and communists. When government is involved, make way for waste and corruption. The benefit to true capitalism or a pure form of capitalism is it's self-policing element that drives out corruption through the markets. But when our economy is run by a large central government as we have today - look at the corruption, billions of dollars in medicare fraud, theft on every level and layer of government, and unbelievable waste. How many city employees does it take to dig a ditch? Do you know that my mail-man earns $75,000 a year? Unfortunately the only economics that you will be taught is socialist Keynesian economics. You will be taught nothing more than the political beliefs of your instructor; naturally you will walk away from these classes as though this liberal economic system is the only system that will work. The irony is these hypocrites who write these socialist economics text books are parasites making hundreds of thousands of dollars through the capitalist system that they attack and deride.

Back to our subject matter. Capitalism in the simplest terms is a form of government that allows for individuals to accumulate capital, own personal property and real estate. Communism does not allow for the ownership of any property and socialism as Marx put it "is a mere stepping stone to communism".  The simplest way to show the differences between capitalism, socialism, and communism is this: Capitalism is a government that allows private citizens the right to acquire capital or personal property and real estate and allows market forces to determine price, supply and demand. Communism does not allow its citizens to own any property and all property belongs to the state. Socialism allows some private ownership; however, the government encumbers the rights to the use of the private property - it is not truly "private or personal property". Socialism also involves the government regulating industry to the extent that the private sector of the economy is minimal, innovation and invention is severely impacted. When is the last time Canada has made any major contribution to the world besides maple syrup, cheap sweet whiskey, and Cuban cigars? Capitalism - the state exists for you; communism - you exist for the state.

Marx said that socialism is a temporary form of government since the desire to succeed under socialism is very minimal because the reward is a pittance compared to the former state of capitalism. This lack of innovation will eventually slow the economy to a point whereby the government rather than giving back the rights of ownership and free markets to the citizens will ultimately take over every aspect of business, medicine,  and your lives! Compare the inventions, charity and wealth of the US to any other country; and it is staggering what we have done in such a short time under capitalism. No form of government is perfect but capitalism is the best and we have empirical proof to show this truth. The next largest economy in the world next the the US is China and the US economy is still 20 times the size of their economy.

It is this capitalism that allows you students to enjoy the pleasures of life, a college education, the modern lifestyles. Ask anyone from Europe and if they are honest they will tell you the truth about how good you have it. I have a philosopher pen pal in Canada who waited 1 year for an MRI; I had a stent put in my heart last year and from the time they diagnosed it to the day it was inserted was 1 week!

Marx said the goal of communism is twofold 1. to destroy capitalism and 2. to dethrone God.

The God of the Old and New Testaments is in no uncertain terms a capitalist; and our nation was built on these Judeo-Christian capitalist principles. Of the 59 signers of the Declaration of independence; 29 of these men were ordained Christian ministers, and even the Deists of the day would be considered “conservative Christians” by today’s standards.

God explicitly teaches in His word how to deed private and real property [violation of condition 1]. God explicitly teaches that a righteous man saves up an inheritance for his grandchildren [violation of condition 3]. God teaches us not to covet our neighbor’s property; [implicit violation of condition 1.] God’s theocratic Israel was to have a flat tax and offerings to charity were given as free will offerings [violation of condition 2].

Some Christians have attempted to take a scripture out of context in the book of Acts where the Church was undergoing great affliction and living communally. This however was done for a temporary period and most importantly – done of their free will. To apply this lifestyle as a generalization to the entire church would be akin to Paul’s encouraging celibacy because of the persecution – and then applying this as a universal admonition with regards to the church today living celibate lifestyles (clergy and laymen).

Consider the socialist countries and compare them to the wealth and productivity of the US. The wonder drugs, the technology, and the charity that the US has offered the world – and compare this to socialist Europe. Socialism and communism encourage mediocrity. The United States because of its wealth and Christian heritage out gives every other nation in the world. God knows what is best for a nation to prosper and to be a blessing to the rest of the world or as Winthrop put it "A city on a hill", but this is coming to a swift end as the government seizes our banking industry, manufacturing (auto industry) and health care industry. By the time the ObamaCare is complete we will have taxes and environmental restrictions on our businesses that will strangle free enterprise and degrade the quality of life for most Americans to the levels of the second world nations of the world.

By the time most of the college students of today graduate, they will be paying $80 of every $100 that they earn to taxes; their health care will be limited to simple medical procedures, and there will be a shortage of Medical Doctors.  Most of them will be treated by nurse practitioners and physicians assistants. The Government will control the thermostats in their homes, they will tell you what kind of clown cars you may drive, what time to wash your dishes…the green movement which is a communist front for seizing control over your lives will even ration your toilet paper.

Like Canada and England free speech will be abolished; it is already against the law for a minister to preach on social issues of homosexuality within the confines of his own church. It won't stop with the Christians either; just like Hitler's Germany and Mao's China, any dissent over government policy will be a crime. Obama just recently encouraged the nation to ignore the media...its already starting. Is this the society of Free Thought? First the Thought Police will come for the Christians and Conservatives; then everyone else who dissents from the government. The laughable irony is that the Liberals are the ones who defend the rights of freedom of expression; yet it is the liberals through their totalitarian governments killed more political dissenters than all the wars in history.

However with a government that takes in $2 trillion in revenues and owes $87 trillion in debt…I don’t think it matters much anymore. At this point all I can say is “save your soul for the new earth that Christ promises His disciples”. Repent, believe the gospel and be baptized – most importantly, make Jesus Lord over your life and live holy – for Solomon tells us this is the sum of life.

We have already tried the socialist experiment in our country long before Marx and it failed! Students: here is some US history your liberal professors will never share with you...

The Church of England under King James I was persecuting anyone and everyone who did not recognize its absolute civil and spiritual authority. Those who challenged ecclesiastical authority and those who believed strongly in freedom of worship were hunted down, imprisoned, and sometimes executed for their beliefs.

A group of separatists first fled to Holland and established a community. After eleven years, about forty of them agreed to make a perilous journey to the New World, where they would certainly face hardships, but could live and worship God according to the dictates of their own consciences.

On August 1, 1620, the Mayflower set sail. It carried a total of 102 passengers, including forty Pilgrims led by William Bradford. On the journey, Bradford set up an agreement, a contract, that established just and equal laws for all members of the new community, irrespective of their religious beliefs. Where did the revolutionary ideas come from expressed in the Mayflower Compact? Answer: the Bible

The Pilgrims were a people completely steeped in the lessons of the Old and New Testaments. They looked to the ancient Israelites for their example. And, because of the biblical precedents set forth in Scripture, they never doubted that their experiment would succeed.

This was no pleasure cruise, friends. The journey to the New World was a long and arduous one. When the Pilgrims landed in New England in November, they found, according to Bradford's detailed journal, a cold, barren, desolate wilderness. He wrote that there were no friends to greet them. There were no houses to shelter them. There were no inns where they could refresh themselves.

And the sacrifice they had made for freedom was just beginning. During the first winter, half the Pilgrims - including Bradford's own wife - died of either starvation, sickness or exposure. When spring finally came, Indians taught the settlers how to plant corn, fish for cod and skin beavers for coats. Life improved for the Pilgrims, but they did not yet prosper!

This is important to understand because this is where modern American history lessons often end. Thanksgiving is actually explained in some textbooks as a holiday for which the Pilgrims gave thanks to the Indians for saving their lives, rather than as a devout expression of gratitude grounded in the tradition of both the Old and New Testaments.

Here is the part that has been omitted: The original contract the Pilgrims had entered into with their merchant-sponsors in London called for everything they produced to go into a common store, and each member of the community was entitled to one common share. All of the land they cleared and the houses they built belong to the community as well.

They were going to distribute it equally. All of the land they cleared and the houses they built belonged to the community as well. Nobody owned anything. They just had a share in it. It was a commune, folks. It was the forerunner to the communes we saw in the '60s and '70s out in California - and it was complete with organic vegetables, by the way.

Bradford, who had become the new governor of the colony, recognized that this form of collectivism was as costly and destructive to the Pilgrims as that first harsh winter, which had taken so many lives. He decided to take bold action. Bradford assigned a plot of land to each family to work and manage, thus turning loose the power of the marketplace.

That's right. Long before Karl Marx was even born, the Pilgrims had discovered and experimented with what could only be described as socialism. And what happened? It didn't work! Surprise, surprise, huh? What Bradford and his community found was that the most creative and industrious people had no incentive to work any harder than anyone else, unless they could utilize the power of personal motivation!

But while most of the rest of the world has been experimenting with socialism for well over a hundred years - trying to refine it, perfect it, and re-invent it - the Pilgrims decided early on to scrap it permanently. What Bradford wrote about this social experiment should be in every schoolchild's history lesson. If it were, we might prevent much needless suffering in the future.

"The experience that we had in this common course and condition, tried sundry years...that by taking away property, and bringing community into a common wealth, would make them happy and flourishing - as if they were wiser than God," Bradford wrote. "For this community [so far as it was] was found to breed much confusion and discontent, and retard much employment that would have been to their benefit and comfort. For young men that were most able and fit for labor and service did repine that they should spend their time and strength to work for other men's wives and children without any recompense...that was thought injustice."Why should you work for other people when you can't work for yourself? What's the point?

Do you hear what he was saying, students? The Pilgrims found that people could not be expected to do their best work without incentive. So what did Bradford's community try next? They unharnessed the power of good old free enterprise by invoking the under girding capitalistic principle of private property. Every family was assigned its own plot of land to work and permitted to market its own crops and products. And what was the result?

"This had very good success," wrote Bradford, "for it made all hands industrious, so as much more corn was planted than otherwise would have been." Bradford doesn't sound like a follower of Obama does he? Is it possible that supply-side economics could have existed before the 1980s? Yes. Read the story of Joseph and Pharaoh in Genesis 41. Following Joseph's suggestion (Gen 41:34), Pharaoh reduced the tax on Egyptians to 20% during the "seven years of plenty" and the "Earth brought forth in heaps." (Gen. 41:47)

I don't think this lesson is still being taught to children -- and if not, why not? I mean, is there a more important lesson one could derive from the Pilgrim experience than this? Thanksgiving, in other words, is not thanks to the Indians, and it's not thanks to William Bradford. It's not thanks to the merchants of London.

Thanksgiving is thanks to God, pure and simple. Go read the first Thanksgiving proclamation from George Washington and you'll get the point. The word "God" is mentioned in that first Thanksgiving proclamation so many times that if you read it aloud to an ACLU member, you would get thrown in jail, but that's what the first Thanksgiving was all about. Get it. I'm telling you, read it. George Washington's first Thanksgiving Proclamation. Here is the link: This is for your edification not ours!
