I have no objection if a group of like-minded people wish to form a voluntary association to care for the needy, pool their wealth, smoke bongs or whatever. Some take it a step further to communal living and having all things in common.
This has been tried numerous times in history including the early church, as you point out, and it has usually failed. Examples abound even in American history-- the Jamestown Colony, the Mayflower settlers, the Icarians, the Mormon United Order, the Oneida Colonies, even the modern Amish Communities to some extent, etc.
Communism is not based on voluntary association where people are free to join or leave the order. It is based on force and compulsion. It is the antithesis of Christ and Christianity. Even an apostate Baptist like Mike Huckabee understands this, so he has to cloak his message in populism and high sounding talk about responsibility to the planet and to our fellow men.
