"World Donination Magazine" and a trip to Africa in January to see about freeing slaves there is in the mix for now.
by Minister of Christ Gene Chapman
Dear Mr. Castro:
As you know, I am a publicized opponent, in Cuba, of your Socialist Communist Government and oppose all Socialist governments in the world. Because you profess a great respect for the Christian Bible, I want to offer in a spirit of friendship to a seeker of truth one paramount point I think you need to add to your plate of ideas.
You see, there are endless evils associated with Socialism, according to the Bible, but chief among them is that evil which sends every Socialist to Hell when they die. The great evil I write of is the 'enslavement of the uncondemned free person.'
Paul the Apostle writes of this evil in I Timothy 1:9 and 10. He states: "Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but . . . for menstealers . . . ." Notice that there is not a "righteous man" among these "menstealers."
Righteous means 'right with God,' 'saved,' 'not going to Hell when they die.' In simple language, "menstealers" are destined for Hell.
Another way we find "menstealers" translated to English from the original Greek word "andrapodistes" is "enslavers." "Enslavers" defined -- Those who impose a taxing of labor (i.e. property/ income tax) upon uncondemned free persons; thus, under the judgment of the Moral Law of God. (This definition is approved as, "an appropriate application of the text," by Greek scholars at the highest theological levels of both Bob Jones University and the Southern Baptist Convention, so there is no wiggle room for Socialists who may wish to debate.)
If you are a Socialist, and you are, Mr. Castro, you impose a taxing of labor upon uncondemned free persons through the implementation of the 1st (property tax) and 2nd (income tax) Planks of "The Communist Manifesto," and you are on your way to Hell when you die, as a result.
But the good news is that the Lord Jesus Christ already went to Hell for you. If you will 'repent' (turn away from) of the sin of being an enslaver and accept by 'faith alone' (see: Ephesians 2:8-9) his finished work on the cross of dying in your place for your sin penalty (Romans 6:23), he has promised that you don't have to go to Hell when you die (see: John 3).
Right now, say, "God be merciful to me a sinner" (see: Luke 18:13). Now that you are saved or 'righteous' in God's eyes, the next move is to join a good Bible based church that will teach you how to study the Greek and Hebrew original languages that the Bible was written in. This will keep you from error. They will teach you about water baptism and how to be a better and maturing Christian over the years to come.
And remember that the "righteous man" (I Timothy 1:9) is no longer in willful sin against God, so being an "enslaver" is out of the question from now on. You will need to immediately change Cuba's economy from a slave based economy and design a new one with God in mind.
Allow me to suggest the Fair Tax proposal that is being explored by America's Socialist Communist Government even now. It may not be perfect, but it is a moral improvement over the current slave based tax system we have in our country.
God bless you,

If we went to the Fair Tax, I'd buy the equipment, create jobs and tax revenue. It's no wonder that they claim that America's economy would grow at twice its current rate under the Fair Tax.
I realize there are other ideas on taxation out there, but sitting here waiting for a perfect tax system under the current slave based tax system is like laying under a pickup truck that has fallen off the jack while everyone talks about how to invent the perfect new jack. Get the proverbial truck off me with the Fair Tax, and then we can explore tweaks to improve the Fair Tax later. Gene.
