Jim Lincoln wrote: God approves socialism, actually communism of a small "c," more than he does of capitalism apparentlyâ Acts 4 32Â Now the full number of those who believed were of one heart and soul, and no one said that any of the things that belonged to him was his own, but they had everything in common. 33Â And with great power the apostles were giving their testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great grace was upon them all. 34Â There was not a needy person among them, for as many as were owners of lands or houses sold them and brought the proceeds of what was sold 35Â and laid it at the apostles' feet, and it was distributed to each as any had need.
For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.
For we hear that there are some which walk among you disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies.
Now them that are such we command and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ, that with quietness they work, and eat their own bread. 2 Thes 3:10-12
Acts 4 pertains to the church. It doesn't teach it's the civil government's job to confiscate and redistribute as Caesar sees fit. Only someone who has a proclivity to socialism could possible read that into the text.

when John partakes of Mass he ignores that the Scripture addresses such things
And come and stand before me in this house, which is called by my name, and say, We are delivered to do all these abominations?
Read Judges 17:1-5 The same sort of synthesis type thinking is used by you and your Catholic Mass as when Micah's mother made the graven image which she "wholly dedicated" unto the Lord
problem is John you
have put no difference between the holy and profane, neither have they shewed difference between the unclean and the clean
Then without talking to the Elders and the Pastor about partaking in Mass you tells us what they think?????
Really John Yurich, the pastor did not make a comment against going to the Catholic church, you neglected to tell him you were going to participate in Mass, and you think that means he is okay with it? Truth is he knows nothing of this "Scriptural and unScriptural parts of Mass" thinking, correct? You would have gone no matter what he said, is this not true?
How do you gave no problem with you partaking in Mass but they do have a problem with Mass? That is like saying they have a problem with gambling but they donât believe it is a sin to play the slot machine Hello
Evolution is a lie straight from the pit of Hades. It is anti-God and inherently racist. Look at its fruits, Nazism and eugenics. Ironically, the Dems love PP and Margaret Sanger. They claim to champion the rights of the underdog and yet no organization kills more minority children than Planned Parenthood. Very sad. Also, an utter shame how BO and Soros have undermined American society by promoting strife and wickedness, whether through race baiting, the incitement of rebellion, or via the Deep State. Thankfully, the Lord of Hosts is sovereign. As it states in Psalm 2, "He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision."

All this talk about pagan thingy but no one is able to produce any evidence for any pagan connections. Curious don't you think?
If you have any ancient pagan authorities do let us all know.

I thought you of all people would understand this trick Jesuits pull all the time Tony. This tactic has you now aligned with the other folks who have been harping against her not even being a Christian... Turn your back on what her actual testimony to the world was??? watch the video again. She may not even know all the evil involved with/in the Pope, and when the most well known religious leader in the World contacted her, what else is she to think, really. Pray her eyes open! Don't abandon her as she gets shoved into the fire. Don't fall prey to this trick of the Devil.
someone pays attention to something Tony says????? who knew

I tell you what if you really want to know look it up for yourself Please I am seeking to be kind to you because if I tell you that is nothing, well maybe a little something, but if God tells you than that is SOMETHING and that ought to means so much more to you. Blessings
I was simply looking for a verse where Paul says what you say he says. Your being kind or not has nothing to do with this. If you say that the Bible says "...." you should back it up. Simple.
