Christianity says: Sell all you own and give it to the poor. Sound like communism?

I remember reading years ago about the fall of a bishop, I think it was. Apparently, this respected bishop had been excommunicated, or at least removed from his post in disgrace. His sin? He’d displayed a fondness for making money and accumulating wealth. Makes you wonder how we got from there to the contemporary prosperity gospel, in which God wants every Christian to wear a Rolex, drive a Cadillac and become a political power-broker.

Robert E. Lee would have wanted his statue (and others) removed. Here’s why.

To a bitter Confederate widow, Robert E. Lee said, “Madam, do not train up your children in hostility to the government of the United States. Remember, we are all one country now. … Bring them up to be Americans.” Clearly, it’s ironic (some might say hypocritical) that the general most responsible for nearly destroying the nation would advise others to forget their ill will and heal that same country.
