The Jesus and Socialism Debate

I was recently informed that Lawrence Reed, President of the Foundation for Economic Education (FEE), will be on the Up For Debate Radio Program on the Moody Radio Network this Saturday at 11 a.m. CST. The topic: “Would Jesus support capitalism or socialism?” Regular LCI readers will likely remember that Lawrence was a keynote speaker at the Christians For Liberty 2015 Conference, and that the Up For Debate show was where I debated Dr. Al Mohler about Christianity and libertarianism just a few months ago.

Fortunately, Larry Reed is of far greater experience than I am and I am certain he will quite readily demonstrate how erroneous the “Jesus is a socialist view” truly is.

Larry has even written a great essay, “Rendering Unto Caesar: Was Jesus a Socialist?”, which addresses this in great detail.

This is also a tremendous opportunity to introduce Christians to a wonderful liberty organization (FEE is terrific!) and I hope you will share this debate with your friends via your favorite social network. While you’re at it, maybe you can show them the wonderful talk Larry gave at last year’s CFL conference:

LCI posts articles representing a broad range of views from authors who identify as both Christian and libertarian. Of course, not everyone will agree with every article, and not every article represents an official position from LCI. Please direct any inquiries regarding the specifics of the article to the author.
