    You obviously do not understand what Communism is with regard to how it has been applied per its history. The STATE takes people's private property and distributes according to its will. It is NOT the Christian giving of alms for needy brethren, which is what The Bible example is.

    You are misleading people using worldly communism to define Christian communism.

    There is no such thing as "Christian communism". You are making that up.

    You reject all of Christian ethics claiming this. Christianity is a communism of love.

    You bear false witness and what you say IS NOT TO BE TRUSTED.

    I was referring to the definition of Communism.

    You want to use the word for something that is not Communism.

    You might as well insist that some sports event or breathing in and out is "Communism," except that they are not. You could use some other word in order to express what you are wanting to get at, but this one doesn't work.

    Luke uses a form of it. But you try to ruin the scriptural concept by substituting the worldly definition. Shame on you.

    No, he doesn't.

    As I said before, you might make your point with a different word that suggests a voluntary sharing of possessions among people of a certain religion or special interest group, etc., but that isn't Communism.

    So when you insist upon inventing "Christian Communism" all you do by creating such an oxymoron of a term as that one, is to defeat your purpose.

    ...which is not Communism, for the reasons already identified here.

    You are slandering Christ by comparing his teaching to world communism.

    You need to define the bible with the bible, not sinful examples.

    What's the answer? In most areas of the United States you can't live on $15.00 per hour, not without working 60+ hours a week, and you would have to make due without a car. living wage start around $24.00 per hour, and you would still be on the bus, or going broke trying to keep some used hunk of junk on the road.
