None of these passages1,2,3,4,5,6,7 are speaking about or advocating for socialism. It’s true that the Bible advocates for charity, sharing and community, as some of these passages point out6,7. However, these individual qualities are taught outside of any political system, including socialism. Understanding “Christian charity” is driven by the Christian’s call to view worldly possessions subordinate to God1,2,3,4. The Christian’s faith, hope and trust are in God alone1,3,5,6.
