The Enlightened View of Ownership

by Robert John Stevens, April 17, 2016

The Christian world knows well that John 1:3 states, “All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.” Jesus, the God of this world, made all things, and assisted beings under his direction at the dawn of creation and probably ever since.

Mormonism adds an enlightened view of that concept, that Jesus owns everything. Land records may state I own real estate but I really don’t own anything—God owns everything. My stewardship of wealth is temporary and used to bless myself, my family and the entire human race whenever possible.

Socialism and communism are the enemy to God and claims the state, not God and not the people, owns everything. The difference is significant.
