Christian Communism - History


In general, the history of communism as a political movement can be divided into two periods: early (pre-Marxist) and contemporary (Marxist and post-Marxist) communism. In the early period, communism may have played a major role in everyday Christianity. Although originally established by the teachings of Jesus Christ, Christian Communists have adapted many of Karl Marx's social and economic ideologies to their system of communism. Christian Communists do, however, disagree with many other Marxist theories and beliefs.
