The recognition of individual rights entails the banishment of physical force from human relationships: basically, rights can be violated only by means of force. In a capitalist society, no man or group may initiate the use of physical force against others. The only function of the government, in such a society, is the task of protecting man’s rights, i.e., the task of protecting him from physical force; the government acts as the agent of man’s right of self-defense, and may use force only in retaliation and only against those who initiate its use; thus the government is the means of placing the retaliatory use of force under objective control.” Ayn Rand

    I never thought about capitalism, but I fail to see how what they believe in, given what the organization cited stands for violates any biblical principles.

    Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves.

    All the believers were together and had everything in common. Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as he had need.
    The message is clear. If you want to follow Jesus, you need to "sell your possessions and give to the poor." It is a very simple message, and easy to do. Have you done it? Chances are you own a computer, pay for an Internet connection every month, live in a home or apartment, have a car, etc. In other words, you live a life at a level of wealth unimaginable in Jesus' time. Meanwhile, billions of people on the planet live in startling, abject poverty.
    Why don't you sell everything and follow Jesus, as he requests in the Bible? If Jesus were real, you would do what he says.
    As always you show no source. I will believe you are a non-believer since you use the Bible against Christians.

    You have no idea what it means you would call this a contradiction more than likely

    Mark 14:3-9New King James Version (NKJV)

    The Anointing at Bethany
    3 And being in Bethany at the house of Simon the leper, as He sat at the table, a woman came having an alabaster flask of very costly oil of spikenard. Then she broke the flask and poured it on His head. 4 But there were some who were indignant among themselves, and said, “Why was this fragrant oil wasted? 5 For it might have been sold for more than three hundred denarii and given to the poor.” And they criticized her sharply.

    6 But Jesus said, “Let her alone. Why do you trouble her? She has done a good work for Me. 7 For you have the poor with you always, and whenever you wish you may do them good; but Me you do not have always. 8 She has done what she could. She has come beforehand to anoint My body for burial. 9 Assuredly, I say to you, wherever this gospel is preached in the whole world, what this woman has done will also be told as a memorial to her.”

    No I speak truth. Confessing sins to a man and that man thinking he has the power to give you punishment that will forgive your sins goes against the Bible. All you have to do is ask for forgiveness because of the blood of Jesus. Praying to Mary does nothing as beads do nothing. Jesus said the only way to the Father was through Him

We have to go back to the good old days when we stoned women who committed adultery
    You show your atheist ignorance

    The bible says true believers give away their stuff. Why haven't you?

    I really don't give a shit about how someone who thoughtlessly barks knee jerk responses when they don't even apply "takes it as". Of course you have no response so "it's just atheist democrat lies". Your response to anything you can't answer.
    So you do not care about the Bible except to use it falsely against Christians.

    1 Corinthians 1:18-25New King James Version (NKJV)

    Christ the Power and Wisdom of God
    18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 19 For it is written:

    “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise,
    And bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.”[a]
    20 Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? 21 For since, in the wisdom of God, the world through wisdom did not know God, it pleased God through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe. 22 For Jews request a sign, and Greeks seek after wisdom; 23 but we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling block and to the Greeks[b] foolishness, 24 but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. 25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
