Love will win over capitalism (07/09/2014)
From: Lorraine Redig

Winona

Larry Ellis Reed asked a good question: “What is Christian capitalism?” I don’t think Christian capitalism is a possibility. Christians prioritize love: justice-for-everyone.

We haven’t invented “a nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.” In a “justice-for-all” nation, ALL producers would be paid a living wage with differences to account for experience, reliability, and innovation. There would be no poverty among working people. The more well-paid producers spending money to meet their family needs, the more “good jobs” will be created to supply them.

Capitalism’s culture of death puts profits before respect for life. It values millions as only “worth” part of a living and if they don’t like that “they should get educated, work harder, and get a better job.” In 2010, the top one percent owned 33.8 percent of the nation’s wealth. The next richest nine percent had 37.3 percent, leaving 28.3 percent very unequally divided among the poorest 90 percent.

In a government of the people, how can so few keep the profits flowing their way? Easy. Division. They keep loving Christians focused on the bad results of their policy and lead us into divisive “right” and “left” competitive fights against each other over how to control, outlaw, or modify the natural results of capitalism’s culture of death.

Liberals establish taxpayer-supported programs to feed the hungry and subsidies to keep underpaid farmers producing food. That doesn’t address the underpayment of those who produce in the “supply and demand” wealth transfer system. Capitalism remains. Conservatives fight to outlaw abortion. That turns the distressed mothers off from God when they need God’s love the most. It doesn’t address the mother’s real concerns or her spiritual impoverishment. Capitalism’s culture of death remains.

What would Jesus do? He came for more love, not more laws. We fight for more laws. When we aren’t with Jesus, we are against Him. Tampering with the evidence that we don’t have justice-for-all does nothing to establish justice-for-all

Let’s forgive each other for our blind mistakes. Love will win over capitalism when we actually follow Jesus!
