Quote of the Day #131 - Charles Spurgeon

A quote from Charles Spurgeon on the difference between Christianity and communism:
They (the early church) were so generous that they threw in their property into a common stock lest any should be in need. They were not communists, they were Christians; and the difference between a communist and a Christian is this—a communist says, “All yours is mine;” while a Christian says, “all mine is yours;” and that is a very different thing. The one is for getting, and the other for giving.
~Charles Spurgeon (Additions To The Church 1167.213)
