The Bible and the Constitution are the opposite of supporting socialism.
Dan Crenshaw tweeted: Deliberate misreading of Biblical principles by DNC to promote socialism. ? The Bible teaches charity with one’s own time and money. Socialism teaches charity with other people’s time and money. So….not the same thing

Matt covered the insanity brought on by climate change protesters at the Democratic National Committee’s summer meeting this week. But, it isn’t just the party crashers who are saying truly outlandish things, it’s also the invited speakers. Progressive Pastor Rev. William Barber challenged Republicans on whether or not socialism is moral. He even invited the debate, saying Jesus would support the economic system. Luckily, we have Texas Republican Congressman Dan Crenshaw to explain to the preacher just how wrong he is.
“When we embrace moral language, we must ask does our policy care for the least of these? Does it lift up those who are most marginalized and dejected in our society? Does it establish justice? That is the moral question,” Rev. William Barber said to applause.
“If someone calls it socialism, then we must compel them to acknowledge that the Bible must then promote socialism, because Jesus offered free health care to everyone, and he never charged a leper a co-pay,” he added.
“The Bible says a nation will be judged by how it treats the poor and the sick and women and the immigrants,” Barber continued. “The Bible says that God makes it rain on the just and unjust alike. If you want to call caring for folks socialism, then the Constitution is a socialist document because it calls us to promote the general welfare and to establish justice.” More
Dan Crenshaw completely NAILED it. Charity is not the government’s responsibility. Charity is the responsibility of individual people and of the church. We should all be ready to advance the same argument against socialism in our country.
2 Thessalonians 3:10
“For even when we were with you, this we commanded you: that if any would not work, neither should he eat.” Seems like you have to look at the whole message of the Bible. #Dems #GOP

The Bible also says: “If any will not work neither shall he eat.” Please note the difference between “will not” and “can not.”
