There is a way which seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death.  Proverbs 14:12

Socialism is an all-encompassing worldview which believes a bigger, more intrusive government ordering every aspect of life will result in a better, more equitable future for all.

The structure for socialism can be attributed to Karl Marx and Fredrich Engels in their 1848 book, The Communist Manifesto.

Unfortunately, the worldview of socialism and communism didn’t die with the fall of the Soviet Union or the death of Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Hitler, or Castro.  In fact, socialism and communism seem to be the natural bent of unregenerate mankind to achieve an earthly utopia through global government.

Socialism is alive and well in this country (think Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortes).  But it is also impacting the evangelical church, where the Great Commission priority of individual salvation through the preaching of the gospel is replaced with rectifying perceived social injustices.

This weekend on The Christian Worldview, we will recap some of the highlights of our TCW Speaker Series event with filmmaker Curtis Bowers.
