    Is this a serious question?
    Anyone with any political ideology can be whatever religion they want to be.

    Communist. Part of the Communist credo is atheism. You cannot be a Christian and an Atheist, because being a Christian assumes a belief in God.

    Anyone from those ideologies can be a Christian.

    sure they can. Christians have been wrong about those kinds of issues before - slavery, for example.

    Re: Who cannot be a Christian?

    Being a Christian does not mean that your beliefs regarding politics are automatically infallible or correct on all accounts. Christians are humans, and we can be wrong on political stances and change our political opinions. Having all knowing wisdom and the solutions to every political issue is not necessary.

    I will say that I think there are some Christians who live deceived in order to hold certain beliefs, and others who are willfully ignorant of the Bible. However, I still believe that they are Christians. I know hardcore conservative Christians, socialist Christians, moderate Christians and others from many different political backgrounds and I believe that they are Christians in their faith.

    Re: Who cannot be a Christian?

    What I find interesting, is that Christianity has any connection whatsoever with political systems. They "should" operate independently. Of course they don't, hence we have the term, "Theocracy," but it seems to me the ultimate goals of each are extremely different. One tries to get you into the gates of heaven, the other collects taxes when you pass through the city gates.

    Very different.

    That would be "communism" with a small "c." It's like the difference between "democratic" and "Democratic."
