Why Socialism is Not Biblical: A Pastor’s View

Part Four of My Conversation With Pastor Shane Idleman

By James Robison Published on March 5, 2020

If you just give your children everything without teaching them accountability and responsibility, they’re going to be unstable and unproductive. The Bible calls us to work with commitment and perseverance.

Please watch as Pastor Shane Idleman and I continue our conversation on making a Kingdom impact in our culture. Today we discuss how the growing interest in socialism will spell disaster for our nation if not curtailed. While masking as a movement of compassion, socialism fails to account for the dangers of entitlement and dependence on the wrong source, which will keep people in bondage. Christians filled with love and truth must resist this freedom-destroying practice.
