Rejecting Socialism: Embracing Free-Market Capitalism, Thrift and Production to Reclaim Our American Way of Life
Faith in socialism leads to idolatry. It attacks the means of production within the nation. Our nation, once the most powerful “product producing” nation on earth has become a consumer nation enslaved by massive debt. We are more consumer-minded than production-minded. Much has already been written on this topic. The solution of our leaders in Washington D. C. is to print our way into prosperity.
To the least rational working man, this doesn’t make any sense. Printing our way out of debt and into prosperity is impossible and only hastens the collapse of the American dollar and ultimately our standard of living. The only way out of debt is through production, thrift, savings, and free-market capitalism with limited government meddling. Our nation and our citizens must learn to live within their means. They can do it voluntarily or by force through bankruptcy.
Those that embrace a socialistic ideology think the Federal government can do better than the free market entrepreneur. They think they are creating a utopian society through enlightened intellectuals but history proves that socialism is inherently destructive. The best characterization of socialistic destruction is in the words of the nineteenth-century historian Rene Stourm describing the demise of France during the French Revolution. See if you read any similarities with the current Washington D.C. leadership:
- “Consume in the present to the utmost at the expense of the future.”
- “Tomorrow never counted for them (the French Jacobin Revolutionaries).”
- “Activities were conducted each day as if that day were the last. Such was the distinctive spirit of all the actions of the Revolution. Such is also the secret of its surprising duration.”
- “The daily plundering of the accumulated reserves of a rich and powerful nation brought forth resources beyond all expectations.”
- “The assignats (paper currency) so long as they were worth anything, as little as that might be, flooded the country in ever-increasing quantities. The prospect of their collapse did not stop the emissions for a single instant; they stopped issuing them only when the public refused to accept, even when dirt cheap, any kind of paper money.”
Folks, leadership looks beyond short term fixes and considers the future consequences of your actions. There is an unavoidable price to pay for adding massive debt to debt.
We are losing bits of our Christian values and the American way of life because Christians have not been prepared in building, restoring, and governing leadership through righteousness. The Church and the American have been dumbed down. This is the result of a busted educational warehouse school system, corrupted politicians, and a failed pastoral-only, celebrity model of ministry that is ineffective.
The pastoral-only, celebrity model of ministry is a broken model and will not equip and empower the sons of God to engage the anti-Christ spirit sweeping our nation. If we don’t break out of this blessing-only, entertain-me-only model of ministry the next generation will enter a great depression of spiritual darkness and will lose many of our current religious freedoms. One day it may be illegal to write articles like this one, preach against sin like homosexuality, pray for people on the streets, lay hands on the sick, or even gather together to worship without a city permit. Have you noticed you need a permit for just about anything you want to do today?
Do I believe Christianity can be destroyed? Never, but it can be hindered. At the beginning of this text, I said the heathen have an agenda. The agenda is serfdom. Serfdom is slavery. A serf is a slave that works the land for the State.
God expects us to rise in dominion. To throw off this yoke of slavery we must prepare people to participate in Christ’s revolution of righteousness. If we continue to withdraw ourselves from the world, we can only compare ourselves to the wicked servant in the Parable of the Talents. If, on the other hand, we beat our plowshares into swords we can turn back the red tide and make this world a better place. Do you want to? Leaders, this is up to you. Our God, the Sovereign King of Glory has given us the land. Let us go up at once and possess it. Come on let’s fight together. We can win this war. Let the sons of God say no to serfdom.
