ll we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all" (Isaiah 53:6). Work, which God commanded Adam to do is therefore a command of the order God set for humanity after the Fall. It is an obligation, not a right or privilege despite God giving people freewill to choose otherwise. 2 Thessalonians 3:10 says: For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat. A person who does not work or labour is not entitled to eat. This is not a command or a justification to starve the person to death, but rather a statement that a person is obligated to labour. For to not labour is against God's will for humanity. To not labour is hostility against God.
Capitalism, despite it being a system that forces people out of slothfulness to labour for their physical needs reverses this God-given order of labour. In fact, it is because it forces people to work that it is against the God-given order of labour. Work as ordained by God is to serve others by giving one's labour as a service. Romans 12:11 tells us to be "Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord". What is meant by 'business' is not a capitalistic enterprise but rather what one does. This is because capitalism of the spirit of serving one self, and no one can serve God and themselves, which would be to serve mammon. What is meant by 'business' is the portion of labour that God has given to the person.
