Welfare is strong delusion that socialism can exist within Christianity. Socialism cannot recognize individual rights.
Christ told us that Corban — the forced Roman system of charity — will nullify the word of God (Mark 7:11-13). Note that this is NOT the earlier system of voluntary welfare contributions, Qorban, Strong’s H7133.
It is your responsibility to administer your charity in a way that strengthens the disadvantaged — so that they will not become dependent on you. The government system of forced charity only weakens the disadvantaged and keeps them captive in a system that abuses them. It encourages sloth and victimization.
Once you believe that government forced charity will relieve you of your responsibility to love your fellow man as much as you love yourself, Or take care of widows and orphans, Or heal the sick, shelter the homeless, comfort the afflicted, or feed his sheep — God will send you a strong delusion that you might believe a lie.
Individual Welfare is not authorized by the U.S. Constitution.
To counter those rumors that the “general welfare” clause in the proposed Constitution would authorize any kind of welfare, James Madison, in Federalist Paper #41, explained its clear intent. He stated that it “is an absurdity” to claim that the General Welfare clause confounds or misleads, because this introductory clause is followed by enumeration of specific particulars that explain and qualify the meaning of phrase “general welfare”.
That’s right! Your Constitution was ratified under the assurance that it would never be interpreted to provide welfare to individuals.
• In 1792, Congressman and future-President James Madison voted against a congressional appropriation to assist war refugees. He said “I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution which granted a right to Congress of expending, on objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents.”
• President Franklin Pierce in 1854 vetoed a health care bill to help the mentally ill. He said “I cannot find any authority in the Constitution for public charity…. [this] would be contrary to the letter and the spirit of the Constitution and subversive to the whole theory upon which the Union of these States is founded.”
• In 1897, President Grover Cleveland vetoed an appropriation to provide disaster aid to victims of a Texas drought. His veto stated: “I feel obliged to withhold my approval of the plan to indulge in benevolent and charitable sentiment through the appropriation of public funds… I find no warrant for such an appropriation in the Constitution. The lesson should be constantly enforced that though the people should support the government, the government should not support the people.”
FORCED CHARITY is not charity.
Voluntary charity exists within a nation that believes we should love our neighbor as much as we love ourselves, in a system of faith, hope, and charity.
Forced charity only exists in a system of force, fear and violence.
People today cannot spot the difference between love and violence. They have not received love of the truth. They live within all deceivableness of unrighteousness that they might believe a lie. They shall receive strong delusion according to the Bible.
And indeed, government welfare is “contrary to the letter and the spirit of the Constitution and subversive to the whole theory upon which the Union of these States is founded.” — just as President Polk said it would be.
