Karl Marx began as a Jew, then converted to Christianity (Lutheran). As a young man, he appeared to truly follow Jesus Christ. At some point, he apostatized and apparently became a worshiper of Satan. Toward the end of his life, he said, "I am not a Marxist." If Marx renounced his own writings, why do others take up the red banner? The Communist movement he started murdered hundreds of millions worldwide since his death.
