Like Scrooge, those who control the world's largest private banks may not be capable of following Jesus' advice to "sell everything you have and give to the poor," but they are made out of light, so we must encourage them to find some measure of illumination within and to build upon that until it extends beyond the illusion of a self disconnected from the omnipresence and reaches out to all of creation.
For all those who claim to be Christians, we say it is time to let go of your ad hominem political nay-saying and practice what you preach.
Was Jesus a socialist? Most definitely! But he was more than that; he was a sharer.
Peace be with you!
