socialist Bible verse of the day: Acts 2:44-45

Acts 2:44-45: And all that believed were together, and had all things common; And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need.
Brother Will's comment: That's Luke describing the first Christians. The last clause may have inspired Louis Blanc's "à chacun selon ses besoins, de chacun selon ses facultés," which Karl Marx repeated and made famous: "From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs."
