Mario Murillo: Excellent word of wisdom from him regarding socialism and why the ideology is unrealistic. He also exposes errant thinking that Jesus was a socialist, as there is a side of socialism that is in total opposition to the principles of giving that Jesus taught. Ben Shapiro is also quoted as saying that socialism is tyranny and we know from scripture that—tyranny goes against the kingdom of God.
Excerpt from Mario Murillo:
One of the best descriptions of socialism is this one from Kayleigh Mc Enany who said, “In the last century, socialism and communism proved to be bankrupt ideologies that crippled economies, impoverished millions, destroyed personal freedom, brought dictators to power, sparked wars and turned millions of people into refugees fleeing their home countries to seek freedom in the U.S. and elsewhere.
Nations in Eastern Europe abandoned the failed ideologies. The Soviet Union broke up. And even Russia and China were forced to adopt some free market practices to improve their economies and the lives of their people.”
To see what I mean ask any socialist this one question: How are you going to pay for it? Prepare the blank stare. Here’s Jesus on that issue: Luke 14: 28 “Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Won’t you first sit down and estimate the cost to see if you have enough money to complete it? 29 For if you lay the foundation and are not able to finish it, everyone who sees it will ridicule you, 30 saying, ‘This person began to build and wasn’t able to finish.’
