Vocal Point-Larry Reed
Topic: Jesus and Socialism.
Despite its consistently abysmal track record, socialism has a lot of appeal among many Americans today. Some even claim that being a Christ-follower should make you a socialist, not one who believes in free enterprise. Economist Lawrence Reed of the Foundation for Economic Education disagrees with that notion. He wrote an intriguing new book, Was Jesus a Socialist? His answer to that question is a resounding no. He also observes that the founders of this nation would not agree with socialistic schemes being foisted upon the American people by their own government. Larry Reed joins Jerry Newcombe to discuss this religion and socialism. www.lawrencewreed.com
