The American Way is not the Kingdom of God

The American Way is not the Kingdom of God November 7, 2015

Just a reminder: Capitalism is about the bottom line and doesn’t give a rip about your “conservative Christian values” except insofar as it can use them to extract money from your wallet.



Remember that the next time you talk about it as God’s Holy Economic System handed down from Sinai. Its purpose is to sell stuff, not sanctify souls. Like all other manmade systems, it doesn’t do what you want it to do. It does what you designed it to do. Getting angry at it for not “honoring your values” is like getting angry at your PC for crashing when you overtask the CPU. It’s doing what it was built do and you are the sucker for confusing it with the Kingdom of God.
