The simple difference between Christianity and Marxism as that Christ exhorted his followers to give to the poor, while Marx exhorted his to steal from the rich. Christians believe in something Marxists never will: Free Will.

Christianity has been the well-spring of the ideology of Freedom, because it believes in individual free will.
Marxism does not.
Great article btw. It explains well why marxism and communism is no longer an economic issue but a cultural one and why we have so many 'culture wars' issues ... because the Cultural left has had more success than socialists at subverting our institutions.
