God Before the State

God Before the State

Christianity has always claimed to be a religion which covers every particular life. The Church and its sacraments are the instruments to extend these patterns to the whole of life. Hence the Christian will put allegiance to God and his Church before political ties. On the other hand a Church political party in power and corrupted would bring about the reverse of Christian Socialist intentions.

This is an essentially theological approach to socialism: again the Christian is at logger-heads with Marx—man is not to be considered as a "complicated animal" but a spirit.
