On June 26, 2018, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, an avowed Democratic Socialist and active member of the Democratic Socialists of America, defeated incumbent Democrat Joe Crawley in New York City’s 14th District Congressional election. Since then, Ocasio-Cortez has become the new face of socialism in America, attracting support from all walks of life, particularly from Millennials. In this episode of the Just Thinking broadcast, Darrell and Virgil (Omaha) dig deeper into what socialism is (and isn’t), its various types and, more importantly, how the message being propagated by people like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is being embraced by many today within the evangelical church.
Key Scripture references for this episode: Ex. 25:2; Acts 2:42-44; 2 Cor. 9:6-7; Ex. 20:15.
Note: Darrell reads from the NASB, The MacArthur Study Bible, Hardcover
