No true Christian can remain indifferent while hundreds of thousands of his or her Christian brothers and sisters are ill-fed, badly housed, illiterate, and without proper medical care.
Pained by the sight of so much suffering, Christians must turn to socialism as the solution.
Capitalism, the system under which we are now living, may be described as a way of life in which, "One soweth, and another reapeth"(John: 4; 37).
Well might we say to the wealthy few who own our large estates and factories what Jesus said to his disciples:
"you…reap that whereon ye bestowed no labor"(John: 4; 38).
The capitalists cease from resting only to eat, while you cease from working only to rest, and eat only when you can.
Do you believe that Jesus favoured such injustice, he who said, "by their fruits ye shall know them"(Mathew: 7; 20)?
The fruits of capitalism can be seen even by the blind; they are poverty, unemployment, illiteracy, crime, greed, and disease. Could Jesus have wanted us to live like this?
