Christianity, Capitalism, Communism


1. Christianity has nothing to do

with either modern Capitalism

or modern Communism,

for Christianity

has a Capitalism of its own,

and a Communism of its own.


2. Modern Capitalism

is based on property

without responsibility,

while Christian Capitalism

is based on property

with responsibility.


3. Modern Communism

is based on poverty through force,

while Christian Communism

is based on poverty through choice.


4. For a Christian,

voluntary poverty is the ideal

as exemplified by Saint Francis of Assisi,

while private property

is not an absolute right,

but a trust,

which must be administered

for the benefit of God's children.
