There was a comment the other day in one of the discussion threads here that claimed Christianity and Communism have important similarities. Paul Kengor, a political science professor at Grove City College, begs to differ. His article, linked above, explains.
My own view is that we shouldn’t confuse Christian behavior with Christian doctrine. Jesus fed the hungry, for example, but that doesn’t mean feeding the hungry is the point of Christianity.
It might mean only that feeding the hungry is a “station,” of sorts, a practice intended to produce specific experiences in the student that in turn have teaching or enlightenment potential.
Put another way, Christianity and Communism don’t belong to the same category of things that can be directly compared.
