In a recent viral video on Twitter, the Rev. Dr. William Barber joined the growing throng of leftists who claim that Jesus was a socialist because the Bible promotes charity.

On Monday's "Dear America," host Graham Allen argued that having the government forcibly take and reallocate your money is not the same thing as "charity."

"That's not charity," he asserted. "The Bible talks about being charitable with the money that you have to people that need it. The Bible doesn't say anything about your money being taken from you and then somebody in government decides what charity actually is. That is the exact opposite."

Graham added that prominent Democratic leaders such as presidential candidates Sen. Kamala Harris (Calif.) and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg are trying to convince Christians to embrace socialism by taking "certain Scripture about being charitable and giving to your brother" out of context.

"They use that as a justification for socialism," he said. "It's not a moral code, it's lies."

"Christians are so afraid of offending people by simple stating what we know to be true based on the Scripture in which we believe — because if you're a Christian that's what you do, right?" noted Graham.
