How many more have to die? ( A plea for peace, love and help)

How many more have to die, how many more mothers have to cry; seeing their children lay lifeless on the pavement from a gunshot wound, we need your help and we need it soon. They are helpless children in a Godless world, a girl mourning for her friends, the violence never ends and all you can do is send thoughts and prayers, a society that doesn’t care about those laying dead and ignoring what all of us have said about guns, hasn’t enough damage been done? When will people wake up from this dream, it seems nothing will ever change and I get angrier as I age, at this moment I am filled with rage that our lawmakers do nothing as innocent people die, I can’t figure out why they allow this happen, it saddens me to no end. In the US of A we have to live in fear, not here in this so called free land; it makes me so sad, so mad. No words left today to say but there has to be a way to solve this, this can’t go on unabided, so I’ve decided to the only thing I know how to do and that write in hopes I might change at least one person’s mind and we can find a solution.

Peace, love and Harmony,

Dave

Jesus and socialism

I am reading the bible and I am now on the book of acts. Some of passages talk about how they all sold their possessions; owning nothing and all lived together. Sounds like an early form of socialism to me. In fact most of the passages regarding helping the poor and the sick, not hoarding or using people for your personal gain sounds like the exact opposite of the capitalist system we have here in the states. As Christians, how can you justify free market capitalism? And is there such a thing as Christian socialism, if so can it work?
