Batshittery of the day...What economic model best aligns with the Biblical principles laid out in Scripture?
been there, done that. The Bible HAS to agree with mainstream conservative Christian values in the USA. But people generally DON'T help their neighbours. The government SHOULD represent the PEOPLE and help the needy but the PEOPLE don't want to pay taxes to help the needy.
Completely ignoring that Jesus attacked the banks of the day (money lenders). Also he would be in BIG trouble with the AMA and FDA in the USA due to his performing of miracles which clearly had not undergone any clinical safety trials. though the bigger crime than that would be the fact that he gave his healing abilities away for free thus dangerously undermining the entire north American health care business model and pointing the way to socialised medicine ! Jesus's preaching of peace would undermine the entire military-industrial complex, pretty much the USA's only area of economic growth these days. His last insult to capitalism was that he rose from the dead, an obvious attack on the multi billion dollar funeral business.

And how is this any better than FSMnomics? I believe pasta for everyone is the basis of FSMnomics.
Might I guess neither and vote for the economic policies of Ghengis Khan?
"Godonomics"...lol. These guys have a very bad definition of socialism. Redistribution of wealth is not socialism. Only state or collective ownership of capital is. Jesus did tell people to give all their property away, but the end was near, so it didn't matter. This is much like the doomsday cults, down to its failed prediction. The money-changers (not money-lenders) Jesus expelled from the Temple because he felt it was an unseemly activity in "my father's house." People came to buy animals for the Temple sacrifices, and had to change coin from many different places, hence this business took place. In the Book of Acts, it does say the disciples had a commune of sorts, but this was after Jesus had left. Now that would be an example of socialism or communism, voluntary or not. That said, there is no indication of this being a model for society overall in the Bible, though some of course took it to be such.
