PLEASE NOTE: Rose is sick with the same thing that I had during the Christmas and New Year’s holidays. For me, that lasted about 4 weeks, and I was on a prescription cough suppressant just so I could sleep! So, we have have a delay until we can record episode 3 in this series on Christianity and socialism.

Wintery Knight and Desert Rose look at several passages of the Bible where Jesus speaks about economics issues, and discuss whether his words are more compatible with socialism or free enterprise. What view of property does Jesus assume? Who should redistribute wealth to alleviate poverty – governments or individuals? What does the Bible teach about greed, envy and coveting? We end the episode with book recommendations. This is the second episode of a three-part series.
