Oddly enough, early Christianity had collectivist practices very similar to Communism. (You should see the fundies around here go ballistic when I point this out!)
Great point! Certain Christian ideas are indeed utterly Communist. Monasteries are the most plain place to see that, but you also have the Bruderhof Communities and the Hutterites. Any Capitalist influence into Christian thought came during the Reformation via the Reformed / Calvinist / Puritan / so called “Protestant Work Ethic”. You would never hear an official Catholic proclamation on Capitalism, as it is totally un-Christian.
Here you have it… my honest, atheist defense of true Christianity
