communism is just poor people sharing their resources and work cos rich people dont bother. Actually its nothing for you to worry about if you are rich. If you are rich, you can afford to leave and set up your own country. or as you suggest kill the poor people off by depriving them of , medical treatments. but then nobody will pick up your rubbish, clean your toilets and wait on you, there will be a labour shortage and you will have to get immigrants in to do all those jobs cos what rich person would do that sort of thing?

most countries actually have a mixture of rich and poor people, its when the gap gets too big that poorer people get plain tired of having to work and be exploited by the richer people so they start to have a say and a vote, but rich people just dont like it when they do.

Matthew 14:14-21 (WEB)

14 Jesus went out, and he saw a great multitude. He had compassion on them and healed their sick. 15 When evening had come, his disciples came to him, saying, “This place is deserted, and the hour is already late. Send the multitudes away, that they may go into the villages, and buy themselves food.”

16 But Jesus said to them, “They don’t need to go away. You give them something to eat.”

17 They told him, “We only have here five loaves and two fish.”

18 He said, “Bring them here to me.” 19 He commanded the multitudes to sit down on the grass; and he took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven, he blessed, broke and gave the loaves to the disciples; and the disciples gave to the multitudes. 20 They all ate and were filled. They took up twelve baskets full of that which remained left over from the broken pieces. 21 Those who ate were about five thousand men, in addition to women and children.

The idea of "sharing is caring" is Biblical as per Jesus Christ's miracle of feeding the crowds. There is nothing wrong with sharing with others. That said, it must be done freely, not be mandated by law.

Godspeed.

Not true. Communism destroys the very God given right you have to work hard and prosper. Not to mention that the regimes are always despotic police states, brutal and inevitably corrupt.

Fidel Castro was worth north of $250 million when he died. Did he obtain that money by hard work and self-effort?

This is pure drivel. Communism is a handful of despots depriving everyone else of their freedoms and their livelihood.

Do you really think Communists care about sharing? All they care about is that you share misery with the other proletariats while the Communist bosses live high on the hog.

I am totally amazed that Christians don't even know how evil Communism is. This is really shocking since Chinese Communism is there for everyone to see their hatred for Christians.

Did I mention communism anywhere in my post? I sure did not. If anything, I denounced it in the end by saying "There is nothing wrong with sharing with others. That said, it must be done freely, not be mandated by law."

I do not like or support any form of communism or socialism in the world for they are all against faith in God.

Godspeed.

Were you suggesting that he inherited 250 million from his father like Donald Trump did from his dad

They are no longer communist. They are more like an oligarchy/fascist state run by dictator for life Putin.

They are under a dictatorship. This is the reason that the president longs to be like Putin.
And an important reason why He needs to be removed from office.Before he can do anymore damage to our country...

It's the commie DEM nutters who are dangerous and damaging this country. And believe me I do NOT want the United States swinging in the direction of fascism either! I want the government to be realigned to the Constitutional norms, with the essential power left in the hands of the people, who merely give assent to being governed.

Okay. 69% of Americans are against Trump and the mess He has made of this country. So, why are you speaking...

The government’s job is to ensure people live justly according to the word of God. Any diversion from that comes from Satan and leads to trouble. Contrary to popular myth, systems don’t matter. A country may succeed with centralized authority (Moses and King David style dictatorship) or decentralized authority (Old Testament Judges) depending on the style of leadership of the president and his aides. That decision oughta be left to them.

When has a government ever run according to the word of God?

I think you need to undertake more Bible study. King David was indeed chosen by God nevertheless, he was basically elected into office by popular vote of the Israelites. And he was by no means a dictator......Quite the contrary.
