Why communism (and modern capitalistic society) is against Christianity.

Many people confuse things which should not be confused.

Many people believe the first Christians were communists.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

Christians believe in the after life and despise property because they are not materialists. Communists are based on materialism, they are atheists and are against property only because they want property.

Many people believe modern capitalistic society is against communism.

Again, nothing could be further away from the truth.

Study those two society organization systems carefully and you will see that their foundations are essentially the same.

Both of them call for having zombie-citizens, who do not think on their own. Both systems call for doing something here and now, in this world: Communism calls for revolution and producing for the state, capitalism calls for buying things and producing even more. Both systems adhere to the dogma of materialism.

This makes them have another thing in common: A deep hostility to anything Christian!

You see, those believing in Christianity believe in a place far away from here. Christians tend to give little consideration to the earthly issues that matter to those who see only matter. On the other hand, all other systems of thought since the Renaissance had one thing in common: Viewing man as something outside of the cosmos. Seeing the cosmos as something different from us. Believing man is the center of everything. Envisioning man as destined to rule that cosmos. This lust for control has poisoned our thought for many aeons now. And due to that lust, both capitalism and communism are deeply anti-Christian in every sense of the word.

The hero of Marx was Prometheus.

The same hero we admire.

Marx wanted to change things.

Change is the god of modern society.

Do not be fooled by differences in the surface.

The ocean below both systems is the same.

Dark and evil. Void and full of nothingness.

Rome was threatened by Christians due to the same reasons. Having a set of citizens who didn’t believe in ‘earthly’ things was a danger to the greatest earthly empire in the world. Modern materialistic empires feel the same threat.

Modern Christians will meet their fate sooner or later.

Death.

But what the adversaries of Christianity do not understand.

Is that Christianity was BORN through death!

Spiros Kakos (or Spyros Kakos or Spyridon Kakos) [Σπύρος Κάκος] is a thinker located in Athens, Greece. He has been the Chief Editor of Harmonia Philosophica since its inception. Spiros has a diploma in Chemical Engineering, an MSc in Advanced Materials' Technology, an MBA in Decisions' Science, a phD in the use of conductive polymers in PCB industry and is still learning. He also worked as a technical advisor and a researcher in the Advanced Materials sector for many years in the past. In his free time he develops software solutions and contributes to the open source community. He is the creator of Huo Chess, one of the smallest micro-chess programs ever that is perfect for educational purposes. He believes that science and religion are two sides of the same coin and is profoundly interested in Religion and Science philosophy, as well as the philosophy of the irrational. His philosophical work is mainly concentrated on an effort to free thinking of "logic" and reconcile all philosophical opinions under the umbrella of the "One" that Parmenides - one of the first thinkers - visualized. Since our thought is dictated by our assumptions, the only way to free it and know cosmos as it is, is to think irrationally and destroy everything we have built. The "Harmonia Philosophica" articles program is the tool that will accomplish that. Life's purpose is to be defeated by greater things. And the most important things in life are illogical. We must fight the dogmatic belief in "logic" if we are to stay humans. We should stop thinking in order to think. Credo quia absurdum!
