No, Next Question

One of the more important, and overlooked, passages in the Bible:

 

[13] And one of the multitude said to him: Master, speak to my brother that he divide the inheritance with me. [14] But he said to him: Man, who hath appointed me judge, or divider, over you?

Luke 12:  13-14

Often times what we consider of great importance is less than nothing to God.

  1. And then there’s the Parable of the Talents, where the Master (i.e. God) loans at interest expects a return on his investment.

  2. Scratched record…..Poland is proof of the superiority of a free market economy to that of a socialist mess.
    Chavez did not believe what he said. He and his family robbed Venezuela blind.

  3. Think of two kinds of justice. The justice that a man may keep the profits of the work he has done;
    AND the rights of the poor to expect the wealthy man’s help.
    It’s BOTH, without government stealing from people their private property and their right to be charitable..

  4. Jesus was not a Socialist but since Vatican II the Catholic Church has been promoting a Socialist message. The “preferential option for the poor” is a case in point. Pope Francis is the most obvious case in point. He is against Capitalism and clearly for Socialism. Vatican II is a catastrophe for the Church and must be abrogated in its entirety.

  5. AND the rights of the poor to expect the wealthy man’s help.

    Phrasing issue– it’s not a right of the poor, because there’s no obligation tied to it. (I know what you mean, it’s just the philosophical implications that are a thing.)

    It’s more of a ‘you have an obligation to help pull others up, just as others are obligated to not pull you down.’
    Which is what taking the fruit of someone’s labor is– dragging them down.
