It is not certain that Jesus was a socialist. But he was certainly not a Christian Socialist.

The Church used to use lowly material means for the greater glory of God. Use the greater glory of God for your lowly material purpose today. "The purpose sanctifies the means" is still nicer than the "means sanctifies the means."

Since science began to know something, religion has become skeptical. The Age of Enlightenment was so blindly trusted in common sense that as soon as it recognized the errors of religions, the priests immediately declared themselves to be fraudulent. XIX. The pessimism of the twentieth century only found the depressing truth that the majority of the priesthood believe in their own deceptions, and even in the matter of revealing their transparent toys.
