It amassed up the profits of past activities, it's the religious soil out of which all nonconformist sects have sprung, and it's the first undeniable assertion in smooth heritage of a programme for a brand new form of Christian society which the fashionable international, specially in the United States and England, has been slowly realizing—an totally unfastened and autonomous spiritual society, and a country within which each guy counts as a guy, and has his percentage in shaping either Church and State." those phrases of Rufus M.

52 This principle of full brotherhood and steward-ship was actually practiced, and not merely speculatively considered. In its absolute form of Christian communism, with the complete repudiation of private property, it became the way of life of the Hutterian Brotherhood in 1528 and has remained so to this day, for the Hutterites held that private property is the greatest enemy of Christian love. 53 The third great element in the Anabaptist vision was the ethic of love and nonresistance as applied to all human relationships.

129v. 53. John Horsch, The Hutterian Brethren 15281931 (Goshen, Indiana, 1931), gives the only adequate account in English of the Hutterian Brethren. It is of interest to note that Erasmus, Melanchthon, and Zwingli condemned private ownership of property as a sin. See Paul Wernle, Renaissance und Reformation (Tübingen, 1912), 54, 55, for the citations of Erasmus and Melanchthon, and Horsch, Hutterian Brethren, 132, footnote 126, for the citation of Zwingli. Wilhelm Pauck says that Bucer's ideal state was that of Christian communism, "Martin Bucer's Conception of a Christian State," in Princeton Theological Review (January 1928), XXVI, 88.
