Although this article was written nearly two years ago, Putin’s commentary has proven to be prophetic, especially considering the recent legalization of same-sex marriage.
This, and other manifestations of Putin’s foreboding prophecy, should send chills down the spines of every Christian in America.
It should also send Christians racing to the polls in November of 2016 to vote for the most qualified Christian man running for President of the United States in order to stop this insanity.
I would place my personal bet on either Ted Cruz, or Donald Trump, or better yet, both!
PUTIN: AMERICA IS GODLESS, HAS TURNED AWAY FROM CHRISTIAN VALUES
Russian President Vladimir Putin condemned the West, including the United States, for eschewing Christian values and opting instead for a “path to degradation.”
In his State of the Nation speech last month, Putin asserted that, “Many Euro-Atlantic countries have moved away from their roots, including Christian values… Policies are being pursued that place, on the same level – a multi-child family and a same-sex partnership; and a faith in God and a belief in Satan.”
Russia has adopted new laws that ban homosexual propaganda and criminalizes the insulting of religious sensibilities.
The law on religious sensibilities was approved in the wake of a protest in Moscow’s largest cathedral by a female punk rock group, Pussy Riot. State-run television said the group’s “demonic” protest was funded by “some Americans.” Russia’s newfound embrace of traditional values has prompted a rise in Orthodox vigilantism. Extreme groups such as the Union of Orthodox Banner Bearers, a ultra-conservative faction who adopted a slogan “Orthodoxy or Death,” are gaining prominence.
It was not that long ago that the United States was accusing Russia for being a “godless nation.” On March 8, 1983, Ronald Reagan said this about Russia to an audience of evangelicals:
“Yes, let us pray for the salvation of all of those who live in that totalitarian darkness–pray they will discover the joy of knowing God. But until they do, let us be aware that while they preach the supremacy of the state, declare its omnipotence over individual man, and predict its eventual domination of all peoples on the Earth, they are the focus of evil in the modern world.”
History supports the 40th President of the United States’ remarks. According to a 1995 Russian presidential committee report, Soviet authorities executed 200,000 clergy and believers from 1917 to 1937, many of them crucified, scalped, and otherwise tortured. Thousands of churches were destroyed, and those that survived were turned into warehouses, garages, or museums of atheism.
Moreover, another 500,000 religious figures were persecuted and 40,000 churches destroyed in the period from 1922 to 1980, the report said. Half the country’s mosques and more than half the synagogues were also destroyed. “Clergymen were crucified on churches’ holy gates, shot, scalped [and] strangled,” said Alexander Yakovlev, head of the Commission for the Rehabilitation of the Victims of Political Repression. “I was especially shocked by accounts of priests turned into columns of ice in winter,” Yakovlev said. “It was total cruelty.”
Everyone reading this article must also remember who was the instigator of this total destruction of a once profoundly Christian country.
It was non-Christian Vladimir Lenin. The evil man who both instigated the revolution and became the head of the Soviet government after his Bolshevik revolution. A revolution which terminated the 300 year old Christian Romanov dynasty and drove Russia into the abyss.
A revolution which resulted in the execution, by firing squad, on July 17, 1918, of the last Russian Tzar. Slaughtered in the basement of their prison were Tzar Nicholas II, 50, his beloved wife Alexandra, 46, (granddaughter of Queen Victoria of England) and their five beautiful children – daughters Grand Duchesses Olga, 22, Tatiana, 21, Maria, 19, Anastasia, 17, and their beloved son Tzarevich Alexei, 13.
After the revolution, Lenin, not only ordered the execution of the Christian Russian Orthodox royal family but the executions of all of the influential Christians in Russia.
Lenin’s personal rampage lasted from 1917 until his death in 1924. He alone was responsible for the majority of the 200,000 horrific deaths of the Christians mentioned in the above article.
Who would have guessed that just 95 years later, our two countries would reverse roles? America is currently diving away from Christianity while Russia is embracing Christianity.
How did this happen? Well, American politicians made the first mistake by allowing women to vote in 1921. As a result of women’s “bleeding hearts”, their voting patterns have continued to drive our country away from the independent principle of democracy and towards the government dependency of socialism ever since.
As a result of this behavior, it didn’t take a revolution to overthrow our Christian America, it just took the voting power of millions of radicalized women who have replaced the tenets of their Christian faith with the ideology of radical, socialist, politically correct, feminism.
And these feminists most recent, and most disastrous, voting mistake was their election of Barack Hussein Obama. A man who is not only a non-Christian but an outright socialist. 70% of white, single women voted for him, thereby assuring his election with their vast voting power.
So today, just as with Communist Russia of old, American Christians are being persecuted like never before.
As philosopher George Santayana once said, “Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.” Considering the fact that our public schools only teach “revisionist history” in a deliberate attempt to trash our illustrious Christian forefathers, it should come as no surprise that America’s ignorant, brainwashed feminist women elected an anti-Christian “leader” who has also proven to be anti-American. And laughably, just to add “icing” to their cake, their ridiculous reasoning included voting for this man so as to also prove that they were not racist! Duh.
Unfortunately, President Obama would prove himself to be both a racist and a bigot, as he has used every arm of the federal government to persecute both white people and Christians while enabling blacks and muslims to slaughter Christians around the globe.
Perhaps we should take solace in the unprecedented reversal of the political rhetoric from Russia over the last decade and pray for a new American Christian President in 2016, who will represent the leadership Christians are obligated, by the Bible, to elect.
A courageous man, ironically like Putin, who will lead our country back from the abyss , and return it to the universal goodness provided to all of mankind by the tenets of Christianity. A Christian man who will return America to the peace, prosperity and joy, which can only be reignited by the strong Christian leadership of a courageous man, who has a healthy fear of God.
