Post Jesus Was A Commie - Short Film

Jesus Was A Commie - Short film by Matthew Modine; i think this is all of it

It's nice...not sure really what to make of it though

All passages taken from NIV.

Matthew 6:24 -

"No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money."

Luke 12:23 -

"Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will never fail, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys."

Luke 14:33 -

"In the same way, those of you who do not give up everything you have cannot be my disciples."

Acts 4:32-35 -

"All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of their possessions was their own, but they shared everything they had. 33 With great power the apostles continued to testify to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And God's grace was so powerfully at work in them all 34 that there were no needy persons among them. For from time to time those who owned land or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales 35 and put it at the apostles' feet, and it was distributed to anyone who had need."

You may have a difficult time showing that Jesus was a FULL BLOWN Commie (Socio-Economic Structure - "State Sponsored") but you can definitely show that there was a ideal to move toward communal living arrangements.

I guess it's not that far of a leap to suggest that if you negate a god and still want to promote Civilization or society then a logical step would be to have people ("The State") gather goods and services and redistribute them according to need.
There is still light in the 'Earthly' darkness. Finding light in the darkness can be more satisfying than merely seeing the glaring light of our sun. It gives us a better understanding of light and a deeper understanding of our universe.
