My writing began in response to Americas escalating culture war. As my book The Courage to do Nothing explains, progressive elitists are building another tower of Babel. Where Nimrod furnished bricks to raise himself to the heavens, his modern descendants fashion theories on progressive cloud dancing. Their ambition resembles that of antiquity: separating creation from its Creator. Socialism proves a critical tenet in this tower.

Christ didn’t make being poor or rich a virtue. And he certainly never advocated having the government send soldiers to collect taxes so that it could be given to someone else.
As Rush asked on April 25th: What did Jesus Take? from who? how much? To who did he give it to? The answer is he took nothing and gave nothing to no one. So when the left says Jesus was a liberal, they are wrong.
For the kingdom of heaven is like a man traveling to a far country, who called his own servants and delivered his goods to them. And to one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one, to each according to his own ability; and immediately he went on a journey. Then he who had received the five talents went and traded with them, and made another five talents. And likewise he who had received two gained two more also. But he who had received one went and dug in the ground, and hid his lords money. After a long time the lord of those servants came and settled accounts with them. So he who had received five talents came and brought five other talents, saying, Lord, you delivered to me five talents; look, I have gained five more talents besides them. His lord said to him, Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord. He also who had received two talents came and said, Lord, you delivered to me two talents; look, I have gained two more talents besides them. His lord said to him, Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord. Then he who had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you have not sown, and gathering where you have not scattered seed. And I was afraid, and went and hid your talent in the ground. Look, there you have what is yours. But his lord answered and said to him, You wicked and lazy servant, you knew that I reap where I have not sown, and gather where I have not scattered seed. So you ought to have deposited my money with the bankers, and at my coming I would have received back my own with interest. So take the talent from him, and give it to him who has ten talents.
For to everyone who has, more will be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away. And cast the unprofitable servant into the outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
It is Blasphme to call or identify Christ Jesus as a socialist or communist.
Any liberal political figure or any theology with a socialist bend, or communist bend, is guilty of Blaspheming the HOLY GOD Father and CHRIST JESUS.
GOD'S judgment will not go unnoticed on such type who fail to repent of their sins.
