Christianity Endorses Capitalism

Christianity not only does not condemn capitalism, it COMMANDS capitalism. For the civil magistrate to go beyond his role as God's minister of justice according to His Word (including the stoning statutes), and become a redistribution center is considered tyrannous and sinful by God. God's ministers are not to go beyond their appointed roles. While I would certainly agree we must be generous to the poor, to declare that capitalism as a system is evil is simply far flung and false. Capitalism properly applied with voluntary charity is thoroughly christian.
