THE MIRACLE OF CAPITALISM

Video Presentation Series

by Loyal to the Word


         Capitalism is often maligned in mainstream thinking, and vigorously so by the political left. And yet the system of capitalism has brought more widespread abundance and wealth to people of all walks of life, than any other system ever devised. Also, we know from modern revelation that capitalism, with its principles of a free market and free enterprise, was ordained of God for the benefit of man. In an attempt to fight against the tide of misinformation and stand up for the truth, Loyal to the Word humbly presents the following video series. Join Loyal to the Word as we embark upon a multi-part video series discussion of the true nature and effects of capitalism, entitled The Miracle of Capitalism.
