Episode 205

Was Jesus a Socialist? (part 2)

In this episode of Truthspresso Express I chat about Jesus and socialism while driving to work.

A coworker recently made the claim to me that Jesus was a socialist. I have certainly heard this claim before, but I figured I would address it.

In part 2 I talk about how Jesus avoided being a leader of a political revolution. He taught voluntary charity.

I also walked through two parables in Matthew chapter 25 where Jesus seemed to teach "meritocracy":

  1. The wise and foolish virgins
  2. The talents/pounds
