Why Mormons Should Consider the Far Left

Additionally, we can look at another Article of Faith, "We believe in the same organization that existed in the Primitive Church, namely, apostles, prophets, pastors, teachers, evangelists, and so forth." Some people get caught in the mental trap of thinking that because it's a modern world, it's a different church, but remember, God is the same yesterday, today and forever. If Christ was advocating for collectivism in the early Church, those should be goals now. If he was against economic exploitation in the early Church, the goal for true believers should be to continue his work.

Lastly, remember, "To whom much is given, much is required." This is a sentiment that is echoed closely in anarcho-collectivist literature: "From each according to his ability, to each according to his need." I encourage members to prayerfully consider what they can contribute within their communities, if their political leanings may need revising, and how they can find ways to be more radically loving like Jesus Christ.
