Wrong answer, but thanks for playing.
Noticed that they willfully contributed and gave away. Not at the point of a bayonet or gun. Socialism/Communism is not an opt in or opt out proposition.

Buzzzzz!!! Wrong interpretation of my post. I was responding to your post, not making a political statement. I could care less about your bloody politics. Your constant political bickering bores the hell out of me.
You were talking about Hell being socialist and I responded that it appears that according to Jesus Heaven is a socialist paradise.
Jesus story was to explain to his listeners what the Kingdom of Heaven was like. In fact that is what all his stories are about. He was using parables to say "And the Kingdom of Heaven is like unto"......
Jesus prayed in the garden to God that his followers would experience that oneness and connected with each other that Jesus experienced with God. Another words, Heaven on Earth. He was saying "this is what heaven is like."
The church is made up of the followers of Jesus and is supposed to be a respite from the world, a little piece of Heaven on Earth. A place to escape the duality and the separation of the World.
