Which is interesting, in that there's a parallel argument that if welfare is abolished, charity groups (widely assumed to be religiously based) will step in to cover.

Well, we had this before the modern welfare state.

That we went ahead and developed the modern welfare state anyway suggests that it was insufficient.  Or cultural Marxists convinced us to do it, one or the other.
