The nature of the Communists was so mean and oppressive that millions of the survivors must life with serious psychological, relational and spiritual wounds. No wonder so many of them use alcohol to deaden their pain.
Now the Russian leaders are returning back to suppression and oppression to control their people. Christians are especially targeted because the Holy Spirit has set many of them free from their alcoholic stupors and they see what liberty looks like.
Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is liberty!
Dictators hate free people. Dictators love passive, servile citizens. One of the things Stalin did to subjugate Russia was pass The Law of 1929 which forbade churches from helping people in any practical manner. Christians were told that they could worship, pray and read scripture but only in the sanctuary. No medical care, no schools, no hospitals! That was government work.
Putin is attacking churches in a Stalinist manner to keep them from becoming strong. If any ministry openly accepts support from us they will be forced to register with the Federal Government as a "foreign Agent". If we send them money e the Federal Government takes taxes of 95%.
This is what you can do:
1. Pray for Christians
2. Pray for us who secretly support Russian Christians
3. donate to Sweeten Life and other supportive charities.
