And that poster is a kook.
Jesus was a Socialist, who spouted the Fairness Doctrine, who said either you give to the lazy shiftless trailer trash poor or you won't see Heaven.
Christianity equals Politics. Worship the Alpha Male or suffer the consequences. Pander to the lowest common denominator, and stay in power,(blessed are the...).
No. You have missed the entire point of His Gospel.
Repeatedly, He taught that His Kingdom is not of THIS World.
Recall when the woman anointed the feet of Jesus with the very expensive balm. Judas Iscariot complained, citing the "socialist" mentality that you have suggested. He was rebuked.
But, no. This was not what motivated Jesus and neither did it underpin His Teachings.
Recall the parable of the Good Samaritan. Contemplate these parts of the story:
1. The Samaritan was a fairly wealthy businessman. Not only did he pay the Innkeeper to dress the wounds of the highway robbery victim, he told the Innkeeper to take care of the man until he was fully healed.
2. The Samaritan was already known to the Innkeeper. He was trusted and had a "credit-line" at the Inn. He told the innkeeper that he would cover the cost of the man's recovery. The innkeeper took him at his word and trusted him for the amount.
3. Jesus did not fault the Samaritan for his wealth, credit or for his business reputation. In fact, the Samaritan's integrity and credit made it possible for the man to recover from his wounds. No suggestion is made that the Samaritan can or should expect government assistance.
4. The Innkeeper ran a legitimate business. He wasn't faulted for this. He was congratulated for it. Furthermore, he wasn't expected to undergo the cost of the victim's recovery. In fact, Jesus makes the point that he is to be fully compensated for his recuperative efforts on behalf of the victim. The understanding is that a business must be run responsibly.
No socialism here.
In fact, the government was composed of the ruling classes of Sadducees and Pharisees. What does the parable say about these?
5. The Rabbi, a member of the theocratic council, the government, and who had direct access to reimbursement for expenses submitted to the Treasury of Tax (Dollars), instead of using those Taxes to pay for the man's aid, avoided the injured man altogether by crossing to the other side of the road. What was his excuse? His excuse was that the Law prevented him from aiding the man on the Sabbath! The government is shown in the parable to be useless!
Look at the parable of the Talents. Does Jesus suggest taxation and redistribution to the poor, the levelling of disparate incomes and the government ownership and running of the financial and industrial engines of the society in this parable?
Nothing of the kind. Instead, Jesus tells a tale of capability, action, ingenuity and responsible financial enterprise. He finishes the story with the steward who makes an enterprise of the generation of wealth, with the Lord putting that steward in charge of much more responsibility and wealth.
No socialism here. Instead, reward and enterprise and ingenity and imaginative initiative leading to productive results - all of the positive aspects of capital that socialism debilitates.
No. Jesus was no socialist and certainly was no communist. In fact, He was a Corporatist. We know his enterprise as the "Body of Christ."
Yes, it costs money to operate and to sustain an effective ministry. Even if it is simply a matter of a few fresh loaves of bread and a few dried and salted fish.
Sometimes, you prime the pump. Sometimes, you lend a hand to help someone get up. Sometimes, you go out of your way to help someone in need. Sometimes, you contribute by providing a means of generatng capital, instead of just throwing money toward a problem. Rarely does the government run anything more effectively than the private sector.
But sometimes, it does.
