Religious Marxist Adviser
Obama's new spiritual adviser, Jim Wallis, is also consulting on POLICY. Say what? He claims the Bible mandates the redistribution of wealth... Glenn Beck had the story last night and Breitbart followed up with the video last night.
I spent the morning reading various websites dealing with The Bible and socialism. VERY interesting to say the least. I remember discussing this my senior year with my Bible teacher (who was also a professor at the local Seminary) and discussing the fact that the Bible certainly encourages the ownership of privater property. And while it advocates charity, it never implies that should be enforced by a government.
Considering Communism/Socialism/Marxism is grounded in atheism and the denial of creation, based on a material outlook and the denial of God's natural order...it seems a bit strange for avowed Marxists to be espousing Biblical admonitions... Can you say false profit?
Once again Obama chooses a pretty radical comrade...
