    Evidence that to a Christian, the western concept of government welfare is satanic.

    It was Lenin's opinion that the bourgeoisie (middle class) did no work.

    He was clearly wrong, which led to the eventual collapse of his Soviet Union.

    More than 80 years later? :lol:

    Soviet Union collapsed for many reasons. And you seemed to miss the 1936 Soviet Constitution which applies that rule to EVERYONE.

    Plus, the fact it's been applied in nearly all Socialist states.

    Your response?

    Consider the entire chapter (2 Thessalonians 3) to get the context. Paul is trying to set an example. God’s plan is to provide for our needs through our work. This is part of God’s character, because God is always at work, taking time to rest only after the work is completed. A person who is lazy and without purpose is easily seduced by Satan. That's why it's important to avoid such people and those who enable them.
