“No more debate about it” Sorry maybe I went to a seminar school for to long, but are you kidding me?
We don’t have to re-evaluated anything its already there, people just don’t talk about it.
2They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. 43Everyone was filled with awe, and many wonders and miraculous signs were done by the apostles. 44All the believers were together and had everything in common. 45Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as he had need. 46Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, 47praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.
Its not material salvation, they believe in Jesus so they share. In some countries its 90% Catholic thats a lot of sharing and you know what some people in the upper class really don’t want to share at all.
There are about 2000 I don’t to get into the all the verses about the poor and oppressed.
Stop marrying it to marxism, that is an ultra-conservative traditionalist way to dismiss the theology without studying it in detail. A “heresy”, what garbage. “Material salvation?”. Please explain the Moses story to me and how God doesn’t want to lead us out of slavery. Don’t just say its slavery to sin because its not. The Israelites believed in God before he led them out of Egypt, we are not trying to “save” people materially. They already believe in Jesus I just don’t want to keep explaining to them that their children are dying because of how international free trade creates uneven trade. Jesus doesn’t just free us from sin, he frees us from oppression. What do you think all those silly prophets were talking about? You can’t do that to God’s people its not God’s way.
Heaven and the Kingdom of Heaven are too different things in the Bible. The Kingdom of Heaven/God is a place where God’s love reigns and if we have to take on poverty to make that happen so be it. All I see in the Catholic mainstream these days is attacking moral issues, instead of the economic issues that create those moral issues. We do not attain salvation through creating the Kingdom of Heaven, I believe in Jesus Christ so Im gonna do everything in my power to build that Kingdom.
