Socialism promises prosperity, equality, and security. In the end it only delivers poverty, misery, and tyranny.
Everyone is equal only in misery.
Socialism is the biggest lie of our time. Socialism never works or lasts.
The philosophy of socialism began with atheist and German philosopher Karl Marx. He wrote that there was no room for belief in God in socialism. He made the statement, “Religion is the opiate of the people.” In other words, he believed that religion is like a drug. He said that the first requisite for the happiness of the people is to abolish religion.
Why? Under socialist, communist governments, the government or people control our lives. We have to do what the state says. People are taught to trust in government. The government will then become our provider, sustainer, protector, and law giver.
Therefore, Christianity is never compatible to a socialist or communist government or philosophy. Christianity teaches trust and dependence on God, not on people (government). The Bible encourages us to seek provision from God. My God shall supply all my needs (Philippians 4:19).
Christianity advocates freedom or liberty. Where the spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty or freedom (2 Corinthians 3:17).
Socialism advocates slavery and total obedience to the government. Socialist governments will ultimately push laws that are contrary to our faith in God and His Word.
And if we do not comply, it will lead to persecution (such as imprisonment, torture, and even death). Research shows that Christians and Jews are the most persecuted groups ever in socialist, communist nations, because socialism opposes our faith.
Once socialism takes root in America, at some point, our churches will close down, particularly Bible-believing and teaching churches. Many churches will compromise to stay safe.
This is why we as Black Americans must stand against socialism. Our community has always been a Jesus-loving, churchgoing people. We never want that to end. This is why we cannot believe in the lie of socialism.
The Bible states, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord” (Psalm 33:12). Once Jesus is no longer God of our nation, America will be doomed.
This is my Socialism and Black America point for today. I’m Apostle Alton R. Williams.
