    From Tortured for Christ by Richard Wurmbrand, 1967.
    Emphasis mine.

    It's time for you men in the pulpits to start some real preaching.

    >Communism is the most dangerous sin in the world today.

    It violates which of the 10?

    OK, I'll make it easier. Which of the 613?

    As defined by Karl Marx, the first commandment. Communism is inherently anti-God and anti-Bible and must be opposed.

    Do you mean which of the two?

    Mt*22:36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?
    Mt*22:37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
    Mt*22:38 This is the first and great commandment.
    Mt*22:39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
    Mt*22:40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.



    Jesus fulfilled the 613 laws. He only gave us two.

    How about thou shalt not steal?

    Communism believes that wealth earned honestly should be given to those who did not earn it (distribution of wealth). I would call that stealing.

    How about pastors preach what God lays on their hearts? How about they preach strong doctrine and let God do the convicting?

    So if a man in the pulpit isn't preaching politics, it's not "real preaching"??? Talk about a stupid litmus test.
    Amen!

    I admire Dr Wurmbrand greatly, but where does he get Bible support for this statement?

    I don't know that I have ever denounced communism from the pulpit. Is he really saying that in all these years I have never preached the pure gospel?

    All commune-ists and socialists are not Marxists.

    As my right wing friends like to observe, there was no pragmatic difference between Stalin and Hitler.

    If one has never spoken on the evils of the ungodly human governments in the world today, especially the militant and oppressive ones, then it's clear one doesn't have a good grasp of the Scriptures.
