I was reading in Acts the other day and thought that this sounded a whole lot like socialism:
All who believed were together and held everything in common, and they began selling their property and possessions and began distributing the proceeds to everyone, as anyone had need. (Acts 2:44-45 NET)
Being an American, it is hard to grasp that socialism could possibly be a good thing. But if it worked for the early Church, then should we not continue doing this in our churches today? Or is it that this is not socialism that I am reading here? Let me know your thoughts.
