It's been a few years since I've read the New Testament, but I'm pretty sure that Jesus didn't preach "self-reliance". In fact, I'm pretty sure that he was all about charity, and the responsibility of the rich to provide for the poor.

You need to bone up on your reading comprehension skills. You obviously can't comprehend what you read.

I have a good idea. Read your Bible again. The whole thing. The New Testament becomes a great deal clearer when read in the light of the Old Testament. Ask for God's guidance. Ask for wisdom.

The Majority of Wealthy Christians are very generous at charity. Wealthy Democrats, not so much. MASS is dead last in charitable giving. The poorer, more Christian states (conservatives) give more than the blue states.

2 Thes 3:10 St. Paul "10 For even when we were with you, we would give you this command: If anyone is not willing to work, let him not eat."

No it is the Marxism, which is a world view. Your religion is your view of the world. God has given us His view of the world. And I am sure He is right.

In the aftermath of the re-election of President Barack Obama, conservatives searched the heavens and the earth for answers. Some suggested that Mitt Romney lost because Republicans didn't reach out more to Latino voters; some suggested that Romney lost because his "get out the vote" system fell apart on Election Day. Romney himself said that he lost because President Obama separated voting groups with particularly calibrated "gifts" designed to curry their favor.

In truth, Mitt Romney lost for the same reason that traditional marriage lost on Election Day: America is becoming a less religious country. And that bodes ill...
