I just heard a podcast where the person compared the Tax Collector that followed Jesus to a Marxist. This person is either extremely uneducated or intentionally trying to deceive people and spread propaganda for the Marxist agenda. If anyone studies Karl Marx, you can see that he was a racist, he was anti-God and the foundation of Marxism is to destroy. The Bible says the thief came to steal kill and destroy. Marxism is about destruction, not life. Marxism wants to destroy, and that is exactly what Marx promoted. That’s a fact and well known. Furthermore there’s poetry that is found that he wrote about how he was obsessed with going to hell and being damned forever. Karl Mark is the reason for the French Revolution, which murdered people by the guilletine if they didn’t conform to public opinion. Karl Marx is also the main reason for communism, which is atheistic in its core. You cannot be a Christian and a Marxist, you cannot be a Christian a communist. You can only serve Jesus alone. You can have different political views of less government control or more government control and that’s fine as a follower of Jesus. However, you cannot be a disciple of Marx and call yourself a Marxist and be a disciple of Jesus. I suggest the person who wanted to compare the tax Collector that was a disciple of Jesus to a Marxist, should study their history better, because they are preaching false doctrine and leading people into believing worldly propaganda.
