No, Jesus was not a socialist

Joseph Farah sees Hillary, Sanders as more akin to Judas Iscariot

A new poll of Americans suggests a quarter of them think Jesus was a socialist.

A survey conducted by the Barna Group and commissioned by the producers of “The Young Messiah,” coming out on DVD in June, found 24 percent believe Jesus’ teachings align more closely with socialism than capitalism. Only 14 percent believe Jesus was a free marketer. The rest, a large majority, said they were either not sure or neither.

Asked which of the presidential candidates’ views were closest to the teachings of Jesus, 21 percent said Bernie Sanders, 11 percent answered Ted Cruz, 9 percent said Hillary Clinton, and 6 percent answered Donald Trump. Again, 22 percent weren’t sure, while 37 percent said none of the above.

One thing I can say with certainty, the 24 percent who think Jesus was/is a socialist probably haven’t actually read the Bible.

If all you know about Jesus is what you’ve heard, I can understand why you might think he was a socialist. After all, He healed the sick and fed the hungry and commanded His followers to do likewise, right?

That’s what socialists do, isn’t it?

Actually, no.

Historically socialists ration government-run health care services and starve their people.

Jesus wasn’t a socialist, but, interestingly, he was betrayed by one.
