LIARS TRYING TO DIVIDE US

There is a very important reason I am going to show you two nasty comments that were made about one of my blogs. First, please read the comments.

  1. “I honestly don’t understand how God-fearing Christians can defend this repugnant, amoral, adulterous, whoremonger, toddler of a President. Jesus fed the hungry, healed the sick, told His followers not to judge. And Trump’s cruelty knows no bounds. Locate your moral compass. It’s failing you right now.”

(Let me point out how hypocritical it is for this person to say Jesus’ followers are “not to judge,” while this person proceeds to judge, condemn, and speak vile evil of the leader of our nation!)

Here’s the other one:

  1. “Total lies. Any real Christian would not support the evils and sins of this current President. Mario, you and your Fake ministry are all about the money, the root of the devil. You have sold your soul.”

These two comments were written by people who are infiltrators.  I found out that they’ve trained and practiced church terminology , in order to lie and divide us.  They go on social media to pose as Christians.

They are doing this because the church is slowly and finally waking up. More and more believers along with Black Americans and Hispanics are realizing that God has put Donald Trump in power for this very hour. The tide is turning among minorities, so the Left is trying this new tactic.

Recently, I had a note passed on to me from a pastor. The note was from a concerned woman who had slowly worked her way into a place of influence in his church. She eloquently (a little too eloquently) described how dismayed she was by the lack of love among Trump supporters, and she added that the people of God had been fooled or they would not be following such a wicked leader. I don’t have the space or the time to show you how subtle and deceptive her message was. It shook up some of those who read it.

Later, it came out, and she was exposed: she was not a believer at all, but an activist from a local Islamic and Leftist consortium.  She and others were being trained to insinuate their way into churches and social media, in order to spread anti-Trump lies. Trust me, these infiltrators know church lingo. They target impressionable Christians. Don’t buy their lies!

If we let voices like these fool us by shaming our faith and dividing us, it spells doom for America. Trump is the last firewall against the Satan inspired villainous policies of the Left.

An even subtler approach is to accuse Christians who are active in politics of ‘not trusting God.’  Some of these deceivers say, “It’s all in God’s hands. Don’t interfere in His work” This spreads apathy like cancer.

The real indictment here is the naïveté of so many believers. These wolves come among us and we so easily forget the truth.

So now, let me remind you of a few things: It amazes me how easy it is for the noise, smoke, and mirrors of today’s propaganda machine to fool Christians.  Even more amazing is how quickly believers forget such obvious facts as these:

-The Democrat controlled House voted to remove the phrase, “So help me God” from the oath taken by those sworn in to testify.

-They want to legalize killing an unborn child, right up to and even after the moment of birth.

-Kamala Harris, presidential candidate for the Democrat Party, said she would abolish all private health insurance. According to Kaiser, that would wipe out coverage for 49% of Americans…not to mention throwing 500,000 people out of work.

 

-Ms. Harris, along with Cory Booker and every single Democrat candidate, also hates your God given right to defend yourself, and would abolish the Second Amendment of the Constitution, leaving an unarmed populace at the mercy of criminals and an all powerful government. 

-Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says, “The world is going to end in 12 years.”

 

-Their Marxist-socialism will tax us into oblivion.

-They say Republicans are racist. Abraham Lincoln was a Republican.  Civil rights came from the Republican Party.  Democrats were the party of slavery, Jim Crow laws, and, take a deep breath and prepare for what history is going to conclude: they were the party that spawned the Klu Klux Klan.

-They accuse us of hate speech, but the Left is guilty of physical violence. The instances of attacks on Leftists are so rare that Jussie Smollett had to stage one.

-An agitated feminist told a black man to take off his MAGA hat “because it makes us fearful.” That’s a statement in search of a fact! You don’t see roving gangs of youth donning MAGA hats and assaulting people in the streets. What you do see is violent Antifa thugs wearing masks and assaulting those who wear those hats.

-In fact, you see Nick Sandmann and the young men from Covington High School terrorized and falsely accused because they wore ‘Make America Great Again’ hats. The lives of these boys have been changed forever. They have been vilified. Their families have received death threats. They’ve been forced to hire an attorney to protect themselves from further slander. 

-Have you forgotten the breathtaking hypocrisy of Mueller and Comey?  They blatantly ignored the mountain of clear evidence against Hillary Clinton for committing acts of treason and obstruction, but openly lied about Trump and the Russians. The crimes they claim Trump did—but that the Mueller Report proves he didn’t do—are the very ones Hillary did do. It is absolutely mind-boggling!

-Consider how Leftists excoriated Trump, accusing him of separating children from their parents at our borders, even as these evil liars celebrate that new law from New York that I mentioned above, which allows a woman to dismember her child in the womb, and even kill her baby at the point of birth.

-They know robots will soon replace millions of jobs. Why are they anxious to open our borders to millions of unskilled laborers?  Is it because they need more potential Democrat voters?

-In Iran, they just hung a person for being homosexual, but in the Leftist universe it is the Christians, not the Muslims, who are the real moral bigots. And you worry about standing with Trump?

The great obsession of these liars, who are infiltrating our churches, is to dredge up Trump’s past. They talk about how we should only follow a perfectly moral President, though they know such a thing doesn’t exist. They say it to try to confuse you. Trump is not a pastor, but he has been placed where he is to be a wrecking ball to destroy the plans of those who would destroy America.  He has made a break from his past, and it is evident to many who knew him that he is not the same man.  Don’t join those who hate him—continue to pray for him! (1 Tim. 2:2).

Remember this: Your children’s future is far more important than Trump’s past!

 

 

Biden would be Obama’s third term

Lost in all the rhetorical dust is this chilling fact: Biden is Obama’s third term. He is—pure and simple—a return to Obama misery. Joe is a shill for Barack. He is a carnival barker for the return of the most failed political sideshow ever.  His campaign slogan should be “REFILL THE SWAMP.”

Okay, before you read anymore, let me tell you, I take no joy in writing blogs like this.  As I have often said, someone else, far more qualified, was supposed to take this mantle, but they didn’t. I just want to win souls, see the sick healed, and bring revival to churches. But, it is what it is so here goes…

We are watching a masterful use of misdirection. The Democrat Party unleashed its screaming Left-wing fringe for a reason. Presidential candidates Bernie Sanders, Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, Beto O’Rourke, and Mayor Pete, are utterly unelectable. They are there to make even a mediocre choice a relief.

Representatives Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, Maxine Waters, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are there to gross out the Liberals, and to make them yearn for adult supervision. They are all players in a stunt to rebrand and sanitize Uncle Joe. But no matter what, he remains that unwanted snuggler, and a servant of Obama most high.

That is why you see him rocketing in the polls and why he is suddenly the front-runner. Democrats are supposed to think: JOE BIDEN!−WHAT A RELIEF!

We as Christians need to see through this maze of smoke and mirrors, and face the ugly truth: Obama is trying to come back to power through a surrogate. I knew it when, in a thinly veiled attempt at disguise, Obama said he would not endorse Biden for president and Biden said he would not seek the endorsement. 

In Obama’s mind he never left. He simply put his sleeper cells in place.  He put them in the FBI to get warrants and spy on Donald Trump. He worked the adoring media to make life hell for Trump. He did everything within his power to create chaos and mischief for the new President.

Why is he so callous and bitter? One reason is that he is watching his ‘legacy’ (and, I’m being kind there) being dismantled.  Why is he so bent on staying in power? He hates America, Israel, and the Faith that makes us great.  Am I being harsh? NO! His malice is well documented.

Judge for yourself the number of times Obama acted in direct hostility to the Bible.  https://mariomurilloministries.wordpress.com/2015/08/19/americas-most-biblically-hostile-u-s-president-3/

He takes credit for the Trump economy, even though his policies: failed healthcare, immigration, foreign policy, and Leftist court appointments nearly drove us under. He refers to himself gratuitously in every speech he gives.  He is the first President in our history who bashed his successor in the White House.

The single reason they are pushing for impeachment is that they are convinced President Trump will be reelected. They see no other way to stop him. If there was nothing else but the economy, Trump would have the upper hand, but there is so much more. Biden is the only other thing they can think of.

Obama wants power. He wants Israel brought down. He wants to punish the American church. I pray God helps you see what is really happening here.

Joe Biden will bring back all the convoluted and tangled ideas of Obama. He will operate at the behest of his true boss. He will have zero ideas on how to protect us, bring prosperity, or fix anything. He will be the most powerful hand puppet in the history of the world.

Why should you reject this man? A million reasons flood my mind, but let’s focus on just one: Obama is the architect of the most hare-brained lie in recent history: That Trump colluded with Russia. Two years after the most expensive investigation ever, he still pumps the lie to his lackeys.  But, as this investigation by the newly appointed special counsel gets to the source of the FISA Warrant, Obama’s prints will be all over it.

But there is one final mind-numbing lie you must swallow, if you are to believe Donald Trump colluded with Russia. You must then believe that Russia conspired to rebuild the American economy, the military, and our energy companies—all things that make Russia weaker.  Why would Putin put Trump in office knowing it would jeopardize Russia’s hold on the Middle East, strengthen Israel, and make Europe wake up to their NATO responsibilities?

If you believe all that, then Biden is the candidate for you.

The next election

Once in a while someone will say something that is not just true…it is SO true.  That someone said, “if you think healthcare is expense now, just wait till it’s free.” I add, just wait until you see that bleeding the rich gets you nowhere. Just wait until you see how a Leftist dictatorship and not a pot of gold is at the end of the Socialist rainbow.

Just wait until you see how everything gets more expensive and scarce—especially freedom. Einstein said, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results.” If he is right, then wanting to try Socialism again is insanity—because it has never produced a different result.

Los Angeles is not even Socialist yet and they are already demonstrating Leftist insanity. They have 41,000 homeless Americans on their streets, but they have opened their border to the poor of other nations to come join the devastation. Not only that, they give more to the foreign poor than to their own poor.

Socialism is the comfort food of the exhausted and the frightened. Our youth are too tired to try. They are overwhelmed by the ethic that leads to success. In their stupor, it feels attractive to let someone else take care of you.

How can they believe something so implausible is plausible? We could blame the legalization of pot. But the attraction to Socialism is never noble. It is not the lofty and courageous aspiration of a pioneer, an inventor, or a warrior.

In their fatigue it is easy to give in to fantasies of soaking the rich to pay for college, a guaranteed stipend to live on. Esau was too drained and hungry to catch the trick Jacob was playing on him. One warm meal was all it took for him to give away his birthright.

We are in a war and it makes me cringe to think that a nation that survived a Civil War and two World Wars may die at the hands of ‘free stuff’. Yet, there is no doubt that there is a clear and present danger.

Our universities and colleges are incubators of lunacy where Socialism can seem promising.  It is on campus that you find those who are so frightened and feel so victimized that an opposing view is the same as violence.

Consider this example from David Limbaugh:

“If you think the Left hasn’t taken over university life in America, you are probably not paying close enough attention or in denial. I’m not just talking about the liberalism of the professors and the core curriculum, but about all of college life. There are glaring examples of Leftist extremism everywhere you turn, and they’re so loony that even sane liberal parents should be concerned.

In September, a Michigan State University student awoke from his nap to an apparently  unbearable sight, according to The College Fix. His roommate was watching a video of  conservative commentator Ben Shapiro. I can guess what some of you must be thinking as you read this: “I sure am glad my kids were never exposed to such provocations, such obnoxious, inconsiderate and uncaring roommates.”

You are probably also thinking, “But if my kid had been the subject of such a triggering event, I hope he would have had the presence of mind to exercise self-help and extricate himself from the hostile environment.”

In this instance, the innocent victim didn’t react violently. He calmly booted up his own computer and filed a complaint against his roommate with the administration’s bias reporting  system. Kind of makes you well up with vicarious pride, no?  As a parent you will also be gratified to learn that the university dutifully dispatched an investigator to dig into this urgent  matter and to work for a “room change if the claimant would like one.””

A generation who are afraid of their own shadow will welcome Socialism. They will sign over their rights. They will accept a dictatorship.

If ever you prayed for America you need to pray this way: God, break the spell of demons over the minds of Americans who would so easily give away their rights in exchange for a false cure.  God help us to remember that a paycheck is freedom and government handouts are a lethal narcotic. Open hearts to see how this scourge destroys dignity, incentive, and sanity.

Every voter will have to choose between freedom or free stuff. You can’t have both. We had better wake to the reality that we will not die at the hands of North Korea, Russia, or even China, but at the hands of our own children. We will not die from bombs but a national debt that will swallow us whole.

Finally, God hates Socialism for the one thing that it does: It takes charity and love and throws it out in favor of a cold government agency. It takes away the joy of giving and replaces it with obligations and a secret resentment for the poor who gets the money – that has been taken from the rich by force.

Dorothy L. Sayers was an Anglican Theologian and a close friend of C.S. Lewis, said this, “The difference is, with the true church, support (for the poor) is a Gospel concern, with gifts of compassion and care; with government, it is a legal issue, and the money is exacted from the rich in taxes. The sad consequence is that love is thereby eliminated, and replaced by law and civic duty.” Socialism indeed kills love.

What the church should be doing, caring for the poor out of love, is instead now cold and institutional.  What Christianity does is give freely and infuses the poor with the gifts that lift them from poverty: dignity and the miracle of a changed heart.

A Leftist pointed to a man in poverty and remarked to Billy Graham, “Communism will put a new suit on that man.” Billy replied, “But Christ will put a new man in that suit.”

 

Donald Trump now

The witch hunt has been destroyed. The lies of CNN, MSNBC, and the cohorts of the now fully discredited left-wing media are cascading down on them.

It all began when they did everything they could to get Clinton elected. But, when Donald Trump won, they were consumed by hate. They turned to the task of removing Trump from office.

Remember this about Hillary Clinton. She colluded with Russians. She obstructed justice.  The deep state embedded in many aspects of government—notably the intelligence community and the Justice Department—deliberately covered up her crimes. But they did not stop there.

In a breathtaking irony, they decided to pin her crimes on Donald Trump. Now it has all blown up in their face. I said it would. Two years ago, I said this, “Trump will not be impeached.  He will not even be censured. You don’t need to worry about Donald Trump.”

But is this cause for celebration? Quite the opposite. You need to see the shameful and criminal abuse of power by all of these people. This is a very dark day for America if we do not bring to justice all who broke the law, including Hillary Clinton.

For two years CNN and MSNBC fed the lie…not merely from hatred of Trump but to save their failing networks. It was all a lie. Not one thing they said about Trump was true.

533,074 articles about Russian collusion were written. Networks gave a whopping 2,284 minutes of air-time to the investigation. $25 million was spent and all the while they knew there was no evidence of any wrongdoing.

What you have witnessed is the darkest abuse of power America has ever seen. People in great positions of power colluded in a way that makes the Watergate scandal look like jaywalking. There needs to be a national outrage that has not been seen since the Boston Tea Party.

The Republican Senate needs to declare war on this desecration of justice, due process, and the rule of law. Average Americans need to wake up to the great evil that has been done to them. For 2 years, Democrats have cared zero about jobs, national security, education, or our crumbling infrastructure—as they chased a fantasy fueled by hate. But why has all of this come to light?

Heaven is involved in this. When widespread evil is exposed, you know God is back of it. This was the answer to prayer for many intercessors.

Not once did I flinch in the face of this attack on Trump. I knew what God would do. And so, I am going to tell you what God will now do with Donald Trump.

To understand what God will do with Trump now, you must first recognize two miracles that brought us here:

-The first miracle was a grace that rested upon Trump and his family. No family and no man could have endured the vile tsunami of lies, insults, and threats, unless they were supernaturally sustained.

-The second, is that this witch hunt was destroyed. Look at who was against him: 400 newspapers. All the late-night talk show hosts. Every major network but Fox. The Moles in the FBI and CIA, the Democrat Party, and on and on it goes. How did they not get what they wanted? Why couldn’t the greatest cadre of power in history bring down one man?

Psalm 41:11 explains it: “By this I know that You are well pleased with me, because my enemy does not triumph over me.” The Mueller investigation was the great hope of the Left. It is why they spent 2 years pouring every last drop of their currency into it.

America came closer to losing freedom and morality than you can know. We were on the very brink of losing our Constitution and seeing the church driven underground. A spell has been broken.

Now Americans will ask: if the Russia Collusion thing was a hoax, what else is a hoax? Then the drowsy acceptance of foolishness is going to go away. Antifa protesters will look even stupider. Insane pronouncements by wacky politicians will now sound insane. Double standards will die.

 

In the next few months Donald Trump will behave like a general, uncovering more corruption, and turning the people of America away from the lies that have poisoned our institutions and campuses. You will see free speech return. It will once again be safe for opposing views to be shared.

Furthermore…Donald Trump has been steadily making it better for me and others to win lost souls. Since he signed the executive order enforcing free speech on campus, it opens the door for us to win students, like never before.

Now Trump will bulldoze the other lies and abuses of power that surround us. But what does that mean to you? It means that the church must seize this miracle. How will we explain it to God if we sit on the sidelines when doors are flying open?

It is silly to worry about what people will think if we stand with Trump. The evil spirit that fuels the Left will hate you and God, with or without Trump. At least with Trump, we have a firewall to let us preach the Gospel and hold on for another miracle.

We can’t be passive! We can’t fear supporting President Trump because things have gotten so heated. We also can’t sit back and abuse the miracle we have received.

The American church must build on the opportunity that Trump is now giving us. We must wake up to our task!  Our disunity is killing our cause. We must shake off the disastrous apathy and complacency that is dulling us to our duty.

There is great hope, because we have gotten a miracle. Miracles have power beyond what we understand. God allowed this blog to get into your hands so that you would pray, and obey. Don’t worry about others…just do the right thing. And rest assured: God will take care of the rest!

 

Is God giving us a second national miracle?

Abolish air travel. Pay the masses not to work. Spend 20 trillion dollars. Ban meat. Shut down the energy producing companies. Get rid of all private insurance companies. Give free health care and college to all illegals.  Kill babies after they are born. We are watching Democrat leaders utter complete madness with a straight face. Why?
A strange shift is occurring. All the loony ideas the Democrat party used to stifle and share only among themselves in smoky back rooms are now front and center. It seems they can’t help themselves. Even when they know it damages them, they keep talking crazy. Even when they are presented with incontrovertible facts, they hold to insane policies.
On January 24th, when the left seemed ready to bring down Trump I wrote this: “God will allow lies to grow to such an extreme that it will soon nauseate Americans. The glorification of perversion, the bullying of children, the parade of insane ideas will fill the vat and sicken America. God will see to this.” Now it is happening.

Trump thundered, “America will never be a socialist nation!” and a stunning 76% approved of his speech according to CBS. This, alongside the left’s plunge into lunacy, started the shift. Rasmussen showed another result: a 52% approval rating for President Trump.
Then Beto O’Rourke’s rally in Texas was an omen. It tested weirdness. Weirdness lost. For a long time, the draft Beto movement said America wanted this stuff.  Beto’s competing rally drew about 900 people compared to Trump’s 35,000+. Beto offered nothing substantive, and had Mexican flags waving. That was the end any hope that he or his ilk could be elected president.
Something else is causing a shift. Today’s headlines read “major cities are turning into uninhabitable hell holes of open drug use and human waste.” These are cities run by Democrats.
Moreover, the radical rules that Democrats created to stop Kavanaugh from being confirmed to the Supreme court are coming back to haunt them. The top 3 Democrats in Virginia are being asked to leave office.

Most experts agree that the Democrat Party has begun to alienate mainstream America. Why don’t they care? I believe it is because of God. I believe we are seeing an answer to prayer. The Bible says, “2 Thessalonians 2:10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie…”
I am not saying that is a direct fulfillment of those verses. I am saying we are seeing a type of that judgement at work right now. Are we watching a good old fashioned, Old Testament event like when God confused the enemies of Israel and divided them among themselves? I say yes.
Here’s the post where I predicted that this would happen   https://mariomurilloministries.wordpress.com/2019/01/24/a-lying-spirit/
You remember the first miracle we saw the night that Trump was elected. Every media outlet except Fox News guaranteed a Clinton victory.  As the evening wore on, a shift began to take place. None of the liberal newscasters could believe it. Soon their dismissive expressions turned to dismay as the seemingly impossible was happening right before their eyes.
Are we watching God give us a second national miracle? As the Mueller investigation stumbles into oblivion with nothing to show for the millions they wasted—as the tide turns in what only a couple of weeks ago seemed a devastating time for Trump and Republicans—are we seeing prayer being answered right before our eyes?
Now is the time for mass soul winning because a threat to our freedom has been set back. This is no time for overconfidence or apathy. New threats are coming. This is a moment to seize through prayer and action.

 

The One Thing

The Founding Fathers had one grave suspicion. It towered above every other concern they carried. They worked tirelessly to create a document that would forever prevent the monster they dreaded most.  It was the galvanizing passion of everyone from Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, to Thomas Jefferson.
Of course, we know they loved liberty. But the Constitution was not just born from their love of freedom, but also their suspicion and dread of something else. That is why they created checks and balances to prevent this horror from happening. What is it?
Before I even tell you what it is, allow me put socialism in an early grave. It has never worked. Venezuela is the current poster child for this. (And please don’t cite Sweden; Swedes will tell you they are a free market economy).
Socialism always destroys incentive to achieve. 100% of the time that socialism has been tried, it has punished tax payers in favor of freeloaders.  Benjamin Franklin knew this way back when, that is why he said, “I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion about the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it.”
Socialism never leads the poor out of poverty. It always leads nations to a dictatorship. Socialism must become more and more centralized around a tyrant. This is because of the draconian measures that must be taken to keep feeding the debt. That is why you can’t name a fully leftist nation without a dictator.
Socialists never know how to pay for their fantasies. Right now, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and her ilk are focused on taxing billionaires. Do you really believe, if they get their way, they will leave you alone? When their programs drain trillions and have sucked the treasury dry—they are going to tax the life out of everyone.  No wonder Margaret Thatcher said, “Socialism doesn’t work because eventually you run out of other people’s money.”
But as compelling as those facts are, they pale beside the central point of this blog. And there’s good reason, socialists never talk about this. It is the chief flaw in their thinking, and it is inescapable.  Here it is: they have a blind trust in the State.

So, socialists like Bernie Sanders would take the money by force and give it to the state. How do they know the State will use it as promised?  Look at the vast corruption and waste of government with checks and balances. Imagine what would happen when socialism does away with that. Socialists naively believe that government will fairly and efficiently distribute the funds that were taken by force from hard working tax payers.
Why would anyone believe that? When has that ever happened? Again, our constitution was written by men who suspected runaway government above all else.  Just ask any socialist why they trust the state so blindly and watch the reaction.
Socialism was Benjamin Franklin’s greatest fear and it hadn’t even been invented yet. Franklin was foretelling the horror of socialism when he said, “once the people learn they can vote money to themselves the republic would be done for.” Trusting a socialist system to handle our money is like asking the weasel to guard the chicken coop.

JESUS WAS NOT A SOCIALIST

In a desperate bid to gain popularity for this ideology, young leftists now claim Jesus was a socialist.  In this blog, I aim to show you why that is an impossible and illogical claim.

Let’s not waste time reading an economist’s definition of socialism.  Since socialism has never worked, it is not entitled to an intellectual definition.  But some say that Denmark is proof that socialism works.

However There is a reason the prime minister of Denmark stated in 2015 at the Kennedy School of Government, “I know that some people in the US associate the Nordic model with some sort of socialism. Therefore, I would like to make one thing clear: Denmark is far from a socialist planned economy. Denmark is a market economy.”

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.’

Jesus would heartily condemn any scheme that is oblivious to cost.

Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez proposes Medicare for all (Bernie Sanders’ last proposed plan along these lines cost an additional $1.4 trillion per year), a federal jobs guarantee, tuition free college for everyone, repealing the First Amendment, abolishing ICE, and government spending to end an oil-based economy. She’s a member of the Democratic Socialists of America, a group so radical that their New York branch proposes abolishing profits.

Refusing to face the cost is a cornerstone of Bernie Sanders’ road show.  Take for example his fantasy about Medicare for everyone.  Even a left-leaning study group admitted it would cost $34 trillion.  Doubling everyone’s taxes would not make a dent in this single program.

(Did you know that Sanders was once kicked out of a commune for refusing to work?  How against work must you be when hippies think you are lazy?)

But there is the dark side of socialism that is in total opposition to Jesus.  Jesus taught giving—heart giving.  Socialism kills the grace of giving.

Dorothy Sayers, a close friend of C.S. Lewis, and an Anglican Theologian said this, “The difference is, with the true church support is a Gospel concern with gifts of compassion and care; with government it is a legal issue and the money is exacted from the rich in taxes. The sad consequence is that love is thereby eliminated and replaced by law and civic duty.” Socialism indeed kills love.

Jesus said, “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” -Luke 6:38  He taught giving from the heart not forced redistribution of wealth.

Ben Shapiro summed it up, “Socialism is an Immoral, evil, unfair, discriminatory and disgusting system.  “Socialism is bad because socialism is tyranny. Not ‘it’s an aspect of tyranny.’ Socialism itself is tyranny.”   How could Jesus be a socialist?
