Subject: RE: BS: On Acts 4:32-35
Ideology and religious belief aside, I think it makes good sense to share resources for the common good. To me, socialism has an element of generosity in it that capitalism lacks. And yes, when it involves taking things from unwilling givers, the ideal of socialism falls down. In Chapter 5 of Acts, Ananias and his wife Sapphira didn't go along with the program, and they didn't fare so well.
