Debunking Liberal Christianity - Theophany Chapter 3

I seem to get myself in quite a few theological debates recently, and I do think it's important to approach most of them from a complete biblical perspective. The one exception I have to that is market economics. Not because the bible doesn't affirm capitalism and meritocracy, (it does) but because we can look at the various economies of history and today and truly see what has worked, what has granted mankind the ultimate liberty and freedom of movement and what has lifted people out of poverty.

(TL;DR - it's capitalism)

1) Debunking the "trickle down/casino" lies.

1.A) It's simple. Compare Las Vegas to Washington DC. (Government.) Compare Wall Street to Washington DC. Where are losers really rewarded? in Government. Where do bad ideas live on forever? in Government.

Where does trickle down really take place? In Government. Government proclaims to be the great arbiter of justice, (Which is a total misapplication of the term. Justice cannot judge someone by their worth. Further more, the trickle comes from Government keeping 99% of what they steal (and yes taxation is theft), then setting in place policies that keep the poor, poor.

Exodus 23:1 “You shall not circulate a false report. Do not put your hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness. 2You shall not follow a crowd to do evil; nor shall you testify in a dispute so as to turn aside after many to pervert justice. 3You shall not show partiality to a poor man in his dispute.

2) We need regulations to protect the little guy! The only "little guy" protected by regulations, is the little guy lobbying in DC to protect his industry. Time and time again, regulations have _HURT_ the truly needy and poor. They make it harder to work, harder to find work, and harder to make ends meet.

Throughout history, in America and elsewhere regulations have done two things.

A) Stagnated the economy.
B) Empowered the wealthy tycooons.

3) We need to pay less for Defense then we'll have enough left over for welfare.

How'd that work out for countries that no longer exist?

4) We should have universal Healthcare like every other country.

If every other country was jumping off the London Bridge would you follow them? Universal Healthcare is TERRIBLE, in implentation and reality. it's essentially slavery for the Doctors, (it's why there is a shortage of them in EVERY country that has implemented this satanic system) in every third world healthcare nation Patients die waiting in line and in the hospital from dehydration.

There is no good argument for the Government to steal more wealth to pay for Healthcare. Especially if you believe in point 3. What happens when a war monger takes over and has access to all that money?

5) We need to ban guns to protect the innocent.

Again this is an unbiblical view, and the real world data refutes it. Areas that limit the lethal right of self defense have higher violent crime rates. Areas with higher personal gun ownership have lower crime rates.

Exodus 22:2If the thief is found breaking in, and he is struck so that he dies, there shall be no guilt for his bloodshed. 3If the sun has risen on him, there shall be guilt for his bloodshed. 

Now some more counter arguments.

1) taxation is theft and slavery above 20%.

Exodus 20:15 “You shall not steal.

Genesis 47:25 So they said, “You have saved our lives; let us find favor in the sight of my lord, and we will be Pharaoh’s servants.” 26And Joseph made it a law over the land of Egypt to this day, that Pharaoh should have one-fifth, except for the land of the priests only, which did not become Pharaoh’s.

2) Tax collectors are wicked.
Jesus in his parable of the Pharisees used two of the wickedest men in Israel at that day. The Pharisee and the tax collector. Tax collection is a wicked act as it steals one person's prosperity for the mirage of economic justice.

3) All economic and social justice is an idea straight from the pit of hell. It started with Karl Marx, an avowed atheist that saw religion as an "opiate for the masses". The Progressive income tax is a plank of the communist manifesto. IMO, supporting big government is no different than going into you back yard and standing in the center of a pentagram to talk to Satan.
4) Related to that, we should care for the poor as INDIVIDUALS. Nowhere in the bible does Christ or lord God, tell us to use Government to steal money from others to pretend to help the poor. NOWHERE. We can also see the results of this. It enriches government and the cronies of Government. Washington DC has five of the ten richest counties in America. That's STOLEN PROPERTY.

5) Most people in dire need, NEED to go hungry so they are motivated to work. Even in our corrupt and twisted marxist experiment, if you are needy it's because you aren't working hard. Milton Friedman was asked this and you know what his response was?

"I worked two jobs so I could afford my needs."

Today though, we have people living on someone else's labor with cell phones, Mercedes Benz's and 56" TV's. Those are the people you want to help, by stealing from the one's that have spent their live's laboring to provide for themselves and their families.

6) Wealthy people in America are extraordinarily generous. Even atheists like Bill Gates and Paul Allen. Allen funded several sports teams, about six museums and several schools.

"Who will build museums without Government."

Lot's of people who will have more money with smaller Government. Look at what guys like Rockefeller built for their communities. Even to this day, he did far more for New York than any Government.

7) it's futile to try and eliminate poverty. The last sixty years should've proven what Christ said as an absolute truth. "The poor will always be among you." Human beings are reward driven, it's why Capitalism / Meritocracy works better than the Utopian statism you believe in. When you reward mediocrity, you will get more of it. Government rewards losers and taxes winners.
