Is God a Capitalist?
American Pastors Network Discusses Capitalism vs. Socialism, as These Economic Issues Become Election Issues
Many on both sides of the political coin have reservations about the talk of socialism creeping into the 2020 presidential election conversations.
As the topic of socialism has become more prevalent in America, the American Pastors Network (APN) has explored the hot-button issue on its popular daily radio program, “Stand in the Gap Today,” which airs on over 400 radio stations nationwide; many carry the show live from noon to 1 p.m. ET.
APN President Sam Rohrer says if he made the bold statement, “God is a Capitalist,” how would many react? Agree or disagree? Be indifferent? Have to consider the question further?
“Or how about these questions: ‘Does the Bible teach the tenets of capitalism?’ ‘Does God hate communism and its younger sister socialism?’” Rohrer added. “These issues are confronting the American people and our entire perspective of freedom—Capitalism vs. Socialism—Moral vs. Evil. Many discuss these questions politically, economically and emotionally. But we should be looking at it biblically—from the pages of Scripture—as well.”
