A listener wanted to know what the 3GTers thought about Old Testament poverty laws and whether they support socialism or not. The guys love it when red meat is thrown their way!
So they begin by pointing out the preponderance of laws about the poor in the law of God and why they are there. They then explain why politicians touting socialism, who like to cite these laws to support their governing policies, are misquoting Scripture. The guys talk about the dangerous appeal of socialism, the need for justice and equity in taxation, and the duties of Christian citizens in obeying God's law even while honoring the civil magistrate. They then emphasize the need for true justice, and how God's Law emphasizes voluntary sacrificing for the poor rather than relying on government mandate. Indeed, this episode turns into a little bit of 3GP - three guys politicizing!
Who says religion and politics don't mix? Tune into this lively episode and hear the 3GTers mix it up!
