Was Jesus a Socialist? (part 6)

In this episode of Truthspresso Express I chat about Jesus and socialism while driving to work.

A coworker recently made the claim to me that Jesus was a socialist. I have certainly heard this claim before, but I figured I would address it.

In part 6 I look at another of the socialist’s prooftexts: the parable of the Good Samaritan.

I observe five points from this story:

  1. The man doesn’t have an ethnic identity.
  2. The man was robbed of his possessions. He wasn’t robbed of allegedly potential possessions.
  3. The man was physically beaten. No “words are violence” message here.
  4. The Good Samaritan’s help was voluntary.
  5. The Good Samaritan used his own possessions to help him.
