If you’ve noticed that it’s almost impossible to reach a meeting of the minds with someone who believes in socialism (or many other isms), it’s not because you’re doing it wrong. You’ve come up against that person’s religious faith. He can deny he has any “religion” till he’s blue in the face; but false religions count, too.
Do we give up on Christianity because some college professor worships her reflection in a mirror? Because Bill Nye the Bull**** Guy says we should?
This fallen world is a hard school; but the Teacher does know what He’s doing.
