The Iniquity

 

“Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.” Ezekiel 16:49

They said “the Church did not... measure up to her own ideals. Not all the starving were fed, not all the homeless given shelter, not all of the oppressed and exploited relieved. The cries of the needy ascended to heaven. The Lord answered with the welfare state.”240

The welfare state is not God’s answer. The government did not undertake to do what the Christ called for because it does not use faith, hope or charity. It uses an exercising authority, contracts to bind and justify force. It offers a table that is a snare and binds the people back in Egypt. It weakens society, encourages sloth, idleness avarice, covetousness, forcing the contributions of the people. It takes away their liberty which is the seed bed of charity and love.

The governments of the world and the Church that crowned them failed to identify the purpose and blessings of charity, which is to give, not receive. The Church failed to conform to the nature and purposes of Christ by delegating its pious duty to a corporate state of power and control by neglect, if not by appointment.

By the abandonment of its role as the charitable welfare institution of the Kingdom appointed by Christ, the Church in apostasy cuts off the blossoming fruit of His Gospel of the Kingdom. Socialism, Marxism, and Liberation Theology bring violent revolution, while Christ brought a revolution of peace dependent on our willingness to be exclusively governed under the perfect law of liberty by the true practice of faith, hope, and charity.

Pope Innocent said to Thomas Aquinas while receiving funds. “You see young man, the age of the church has passed in which she said, ‘Silver and gold have I none.’”

Thomas is said to have replied, “True holy father but the age is also past in which she could say to a paralytic ‘Rise up and walk’”241
