Wesley Weekly #52 – Religious Ethics in Economic Systems

Hello Everyone, and welcome back to the Wesley Foundation at MSU!

We are continuing with our theme this semester on examining the role of religion as it relates to the various global systems we interact with.

So stick around to see what we are tackling this week!

What you may have missed…

Last week we started by examining the relationship between Religious Ethics and Capitalism, specifically “Late Stage Capitalism”.

We discussed what sources are often utilized as support for Capitalism, and the moral justifications employed by mostly Evangelicals to make the claim that Capitalism is the best economic outlet for Christian morality.

Yet, an increasingly large portion of the population struggles to cover basic life necessities with many proposing to cut what few programs are allowing them to survive.

This Week

This week we are evaluating the religious ethical and moral support behind Socialist systems. Evaluating the beliefs by those like Martin Luther King Jr., Bernie Sanders, and numerous others.

These will then be compared and contrasted to those supporting Capitalism and then evaluated side by side.

Not controversial at all.
