Christianity says: Sell all you own and give it to the poor. Sound like communism?

I remember reading years ago about the fall of a bishop, I think it was. Apparently, this respected bishop had been excommunicated, or at least removed from his post in disgrace. His sin? He’d displayed a fondness for making money and accumulating wealth. Makes you wonder how we got from there to the contemporary prosperity gospel, in which God wants every Christian to wear a Rolex, drive a Cadillac and become a political power-broker.
