Proof that there was no "communism" in the church at Jerusalem. The property of Ananias was under his own control, to sell or not; and after it was sold the proceeds of the sale were his.

I believe it was R.B. Kuiper who said something along the lines of this: "Marxist communism says, 'what's yours is mine.' Jerusalem communism says, 'what's mine is yours.'"

Certainly not communism. More like a bigger and better way to think of family.

I agree that communism is not in the Bible, but we must differentiate between state Communism and Anarcho-communism.
