Ultimately, hope for change cannot be found in any country’s ruling class, but in Jesus Christ alone.

    Socialism only works well alongside capitalism. In Britain socialism brought about good things in 1940's – 70's like the NHS, social housing, railways etc, basically the essential infrastructure of the country. But there was private business, private property, it all worked well together. But extremes of either Capitalism or Socialism bring nothing but misery for most people.

    Europe is not failing because of socialism. Europe is failing because of corporatism brought in by the EU. And the socialdemocracies in Europe have nothing to do with communism. I agree it is not Gods will. And there is a better way. But the explanation in this video is "Europe though american filter" which is not the same as Europe. And vice versa. Fex. it is US that has the highest child poverty rate in the western world. A lot of countries in Europe you dont have child poverty at all.

    I appreciate your admonishment towards laziness and sloth attitudes but this unfettered capitalism that exists today is contributing to unbelievable wealth inequality that has not been seen since the time before the Great Depression. This unfettered capitalism is lead by grotesque greed and corruption. The only voices heard by our government are from the very wealthy. Please remember that our freedoms and prosperity are from the sacrifices from those generations before us and most importantly from God’s blessings and not capitalism. Capitalism is just an economic system.

    You say that God didn't tell the church to follow this "socialist system", but what about Ananias and Sapphira in Acts 5?

    God Bless You Jack Hibbs, my Brother, for the Truth!! Nope, socialism DO NOT WORK. It makes everyone equally miserable, aside from the very few. It is VERY important that our youth hear about this…I’lll be pinning it to our youth outreach webpages & passing the word on! This is the TRUTH: And the TRUTH will set the USA free from our descent. I grew up waitressing for every penny in the late 80’s, and often miss those days when I knew what every cent cost, & the pride of earning it! Bless you Pastor Hibbs for ALL you do. I’m lifting up you, your family, and Church to the Lord! God Bless & Keep You with His mighty right arm! IN Christ Jesus Who Lives!! SOLI DEO GLORIA!

    For socialism to work they need the really really rich like Zuckerberg, Gates, Bezos, Winfrey – those are the celebrated faces of the Democrat party promoting socialism and ecumenism. And then everyone else below their level of wealth needs to be in the same impoverished economic class for everything to be fair. And of course, they want to take your money and redistribute it so that the people they want to get your money get it and you are forced to give it to them or you are racist.
    But that can't work for very long. There is an old USSR Russian saying "We pretend to work and they pretend to pay us". People lose the incentive to work if you work hard but you aren't paid any more than if you don't work much. If you studied REALLY hard in school and made the same grade as the one who didn't study at all and didn't care… how long would you keep trying if there is ZERO reward for your hard work?
    So people wind up lethargic, resentful and miserable like Russians did having millions upon millions of alcoholics. And of course we know the Gulag work camps of Russia tried to force people to work and they starved and died by the hundreds of thousands.
    In my opinion.. if you follow this line of thinking out… Hard work should equal higher pay. Laziness should equal NO pay. That's the same as saying there is a reward for good just like there is punishment for bad. That's the principle of good vs evil… right?
    But isn't that exactly the opposite of what's being taught right now??? Bad is good and good is bad.
    In my opinion, the whole reason for the good is bad and bad is good is to make America question is God good if bad is rewarded? If bad is rewarded maybe God isn't that good. Maybe we don't need God and the devil isn't that bad.. in fact if we are rewarded for being selfish maybe the Devil is good. And that's who they follow looking for a payoff.
    Gal 6:7 Do not be deceived; God is not mocked: whatsoever a man sows that shall he also reap. 8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

    excellent.. I found it funny you used Oprah & Gates as an example.. two of the biggest supporters of socialism………… they are because they don't think their money would be taken..

    There are 350,000 churches in America. Why are there over 250,000 homeless people and families in this country? Sinners see this lack of love and caring for the poor and want no part of Christianity. The big "charities" and government agencies wind up taking the donations and funding to pay themselves big salaries, trips, vacations, parties, etc. and do little for the poor. I know…I worked with some of them. I left because the corruption and greed made me sick! The "churches" could do alot more! Instead of Christmas presents, why don't we make sure our suffering brothers and sisters are taken care of first? Non-believers see the "church" as a bunch of hypocrites. Rev. 3:14-17 Reminds me of the Church at Laodecia in the Book of Revelation. Jesus said, " I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth, because you say, "I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing- and do not know that you are wretched miserable poor blind and naked."

    Jack I agree with most of your teachings but this is one where I disagree. When you have socialism, such as Canada does for example, you are loving your neighbor. Their healthcare system has folks contributing to one healthcare system that benefits everyone. If money did not exist, what would you have? Also, folks sold and gave to those disciples, did they not? What would have happened if they had not done so? Well, if socialism were the dominant economy if that time then perhaps they would not have had issues later.
