According to each one’s need

Much has been made of Senator Obama’s plan to tax the rich and give it to the middle class and poor in this country. Senator McCain and members of the Republican party are calling Senator Obama a socialst, marxist and in some circles a communist. Actually Senator Obama’s plan is more akin to early Christianity when Christians still acted like Christ.

All who believed were together and had all things in common; they would sell their property and possessions and divide them among all according to each one’s need.–Acts 2:45-46

The party of family values and supposed Christian ideals are actually attacking a man over a principle found in the Bible. We’re supposed to be helping each other here on the planet. It’s not all about making money. The message of Jesus is about radical mercy and forgiveness. It’s not about judgment and condemnation and grabbing all you can for yourself and to hell with the other guy.
