I can see that there are a great many people on-line who still follow Christ, but for the sake of their spiritual integrity, sanity, and self-respect have given up on the institution. So my question is where is everybody? I mean where are you on a map? Anyone in Southeast Michigan? I think we could all use the mutual encouragement of meeting each other face-to-face.. Anybody?

One way to mitigate this is to ensure that distribution in the first place is more equitable; this reduces the need for redistribution. Of course, since we are all selfish sinners, some form of coercion is always necessary, whether it be the IRS or Quantrill’s Raiders.

He also had a beautiful singing voice and was one of the GREAT trombonists of our time. I had the wonderful privilege of being his piano accompanist for a program at my church many years ago. He was easy to work with.

Yeah, the idea that there is some perfect or even superior socio-economic system which can somehow undo man’s sinful nature is a pipe dream. And actually, the OT is a great example – despite having a justice system instituted by Yahweh himself, they basically failed, if we are to believe the prophets. But I think you are right – we can all work within our own sphere of influence to love mercy and to do justly, and to walk humbly with God.
