Dangers

Based on a materialistic worldview

"Man is not a sinner"
Salvation is found in the cross, which liberates from sin (Romans 3:23; 5:8)
Sin brings inequality (Proverbs 12:27)
Relationship with Christ is most important, he takes care of the rest

Punishes virtue and individual responsibility by giving out freebies

Discourages responsibility (Romans 14:11)
"Carefree" does not mean free - someone has to pay (2 Thessalonians 3:10; 1 Timothy 5:8)

Denies the individual's worth as God's creation

Socialism only sees someone valuable if they contribute to society (Romans 5:6)
We have a mandate (Genesis 1:28)
We have an eternal destiny (Hebrews 9:27; Revelation 20:12,15)

Seeks to destroy marriage and the family

Children are the responsibility of the parents, not the government (Deuteronomy 6:7; Proverbs 22:6)
