  • Capitalism and Paganism - a good article

    I thought the others on this board may find this article interesting and worth a comment or two.

    “What Scripture doth plainly deliver, to that first place both of credit and obedience is due; the next whereunto is whatsoever any man can necessarily conclude by force of reason; after these the voice of the Church succeedeth. That which the Church by her ecclesiastical authority shall probably think and define to be true or good, must in congruity of reason over-rule all other inferior judgments whatsoever” ( Laws, Book V, 8:2; Folger Edition 2:39,8-14).

    I've been attempting to do research on the concept of Capitalism.

    From what I can tell, it is based on the term "capital", which, reportedly, means "wealth that creates more wealth".

    In doing this research, I've had to do research on Socialism.

    This got me into doing research on the former Soviet Union.

      I couldn't help thinking that the powers that are out to destroy Capitalism are all atheistic and much poorer.
      JER 14:13 Then said I: 'Ah, Lord GOD! behold, the prophets say unto them: Ye shall not see the sword, neither shall ye have famine; but I will give you assured peace in this place.'
      JER 14:14 Then the LORD said unto me: 'The prophets prophesy lies in My name; I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spoke I unto them; they prophesy unto you a lying vision, and divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their own heart.

        I don't think I quite get it...

        If you are saying that ANYONE who is anti-Capitalist is automatically Communist and/or Socialist, I just don't agree with that.

          The communist are atheistic. Their surrogates and others are poor because of their inability to prosper from Capitalism.

          But the communists are making more money than ever by taking advantage of Capitalism.

          To me, that's funny and ironic.
