Christian communism
Main article: Christian communism
Christian communism is a form of religious communism centered on Christianity. It is a theological and political theory based upon the view that the teachings of Jesus Christ urge Christians to support communism as the ideal social system. Christian communists trace the origins of their practice to teachings in the New Testament, such as this one from Acts of the Apostles at chapter 2 and verses 42, 44, and 45:

42 And they continued steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine and in fellowship [...] 44 And all that believed were together, and had all things in common; 45 And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need. (King James Version)

Christian communism can be seen as a radical form of Christian socialism. Also, due to the fact that many Christian communists have formed independent stateless communes in the past, there is also a link between Christian communism and Christian anarchism. Christian communists may or may not agree with various parts of Marxism.

Christian communists also share some of the political goals of Marxists, for example replacing capitalism with socialism, which should in turn be followed by communism at a later point in the future. However, Christian communists sometimes disagree with Marxists (and particularly with Leninists) on the way a socialist or communist society should be organized.

I wish Jeff Gordon would get back on top so I could tell my favorite NASCAR joke again.

In the meantime ... what does NASCAR stand for?

LWW &lt;---Likes NASCAR and jokes. I'm an equal opportunity offender.

The only thing good about a commune is the sex.

And Catholic girls start much to late. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

Bristol is about 12 miles from me give or take.
Plus the F-16 flight path is right over my grill and beer fridge.
Now if I can just get the boys to give me a wing waggle.

The place is a real zoo over here come race time.

Started by rum runners like Junior Johnson.

Johnson still believes his shine car was the fastest he ever drove.

I had an uncle on my mother's side who ran shine ... his name was Junior as a matter of fact ... and that story might just be accurate.

My uncle Junior's last new car was a Buick Regal GNX.

Funny true story. Junior donated an actual still to the NASCAR HOF. When it came time to set up the display, they couldn't figure out how it all worked. Junior came down and put it together for them!

It's rare to meet someone with a first name of "JUNIOR" who doesn't know a little about DIY distilleries.

Not completely correct.

The ultimate failure in Marxism is that there are but a handful of true believers who will selflessly live up to the "FROM EACH ACCORDING TO THEIR ABILITY" while there is an abundance of people lining up for "TO EACH ACCORDING TO THEIR NEED" ... and that is what crushes it on a national scale.

Christian communism, and other communal forms, can work exceedingly well. Where they differ from the Marxist paradigm is that all of the commune members are there because they want to be there, any who want to leave can, and any who refuse to contribute can be excommunicated.

With those key differences they only resemble statist communism on paper.
