the Apostles were Communists

so, I’ve been reading bits of the New Testament lately and I’ve finally gotten to Acts.  And one of the interesting things I found within is that the apostles were proto-communists.

Acts 2:44-45

All who believed were together and had all things in common

they would sell their possessions and goods and distribute the proceeds to all, as any had need.

See?

The Apostles were proto-communist.

So why, in the 1950’s did we add “under God” to our Pledge of Allegiance to differentiate between us and communism?  If this is to be believed, being “under God” would in fact mean being part of the faith and sharing goods with those that had the need.

There have been alot of other biblical things I’ve learned today, but that was the big one.  I’ll save the others for another post.
