Communism is the extreme version of socialism, which, like the original ideology, Marxism, is atheistic to its core. Invariably, socialism given license eventually morphs into communism marked by tyranny, suffering, and death. The biblical differences noted earlier between socialism and Christianity also apply to Marxist communism, but on steroids. History exposes the bloody path of communism’s march through Russia, China, Venezuela, and elsewhere. Fundamentally, that toll is the result of communism’s stark failure to recognize a higher moral authority, and without a constraining god, even mass murder is permissive as the means to pursue the communist’s utopian social goal.
