The sub title for The Invisible Hand article which covers finance, capitalism and free markets is: How Adam Smith's Invisible Hand metaphor destroys the government's War on Poverty argument!

"Increasing Your Financial IQ" Now the financial institutions, specifically those listed below, whose strength is dependent upon financially strong customers are bemoaning the lack of financial discipline! Guess where the the traditional principles of strong financial discipline come from. The Bible! They have admitted their financial fears as published in 2001; you can read it under our heading "Financial Appendix" on the same page above. ... ""If wallets came with owner's manuals, perhaps we'd ..."
Also from this reference is this line: Everywhere we look we see a lack of Biblical discipline and ignorance of Biblical principles of integrity for good living. The stupidity is astounding; beyond belief! Absolutely True in the Financial realm is supported by economist Adam Smith's 'Invisible_hand' metaphor' (The Wealth of Nations, circa 1776). Please see our article that critiques the Wikipedia.org definition: A Comment on Adam Smith's Invisible Hand Metaphor. They deleted my edit!

Moreover, a free market arguably provides numerous opportunities for maximizing one’s own profit at the (addictive) expense (rather than for the benefit) of others. The tobacco industry is often cited as an example of this: the sale of cigarettes and other tobacco products certainly brings a very good revenue, but the industry’s critics deny that the social benefits (the pleasures associated with smoking, the camaraderie, the feeling of doing something “cool”) can possibly outbalance the social costs. Among the social costs of addictive behaviors typically affecting the individual, the family and the community are: increased health care costs, reduced life span, reduced productive earnings capacity and lost prosperity of the family. All of those personal costs put stresses (i.e. divisive divorce stresses) on the social family unit; and, upon the addict's incapacitation or termination, the broken family usually operates at a lower income i.e. poverty level and/or requires social services of one kind or another. Ironically, other addictive behaviors, some with even higher personal, familiar and social poverty costs, are allowed to proliferate e.g. gambling, pornography, homosexuality, prostitution, alcohol and drugs, adultery et al..

This leads one to insist on the continued enforcement of illegal industries like drugs and prostitution and outlaw gambling and pornography for the good of a great society.
The "Bible in public schools" point and His ways point is that if you do good you will be blessed and if you do evil you will be cursed. You have heard of the 10 Commandments but have you heard of the 12 Curses? Even the atheist, if he can think, can see that nothing good comes from sin. For a rational human being there is no amount of revenue that can justify the industries cruelty, victimization of people and the creation of poverty. Legislators, businessmen and schools that promote sin on their watch must surely be insane.Sincerely,
