WHY ARE YOU CONTINUING TO BE CONCERNED ABOUT COMMUNISM? COMMUNISM IS DEAD. CHINA IS PRACTISING CAPITALISM. RUSSIA IS CHRISTIAN AND CUBA IS NOW AN OPEN SOCIETY!
Greetings in the precious Name of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
As a missionary, for the last 38 years dedicated to serving persecuted Christians in Restricted Access Countries, I must inform you that communism continues to be a very serious threat and a clear and present danger, not only for millions of Christians still suffering under Communist dictatorships, but insidious communist propaganda has infiltrated and undermined much of the free world too.
The Heart and Soul of Karl Marx,
The Greatest Killer, which you can listen to on Sermon Audio as an audio,
Cuba, Castro and Communism, which you can also listen to on Sermon Audio as an audio,
KGB, Active Measures, Disinformation and Subversion, which you can listen to on Sermon Audio as an audio and
How Marxists Subvert Churches and Society, which you can listen to on Sermon Audio as an audio, as well as an Interview on Marxism.
From other sources, you would be well advised to read Richard Wurmbrand’s book, Tortured for Christ and if you want serious documentation, you can obtain The Black Book of Communism, written by six ex-communists, including the editor of Communisme magazine, entirely based on communist archives after the Fall of Berlin wall, documenting how over 100 million people were slaughtered by communist regimes just between 1917 and 1991.
I have been tortured by communists in Zambia and Mozambique in the 1980’s. I have ministered to survivors of vast numbers of communist atrocities under Samora Machel’s regime in Mozambique and Agostinho Neto in Angola. I have worked throughout the whole Eastern Europe, including while the Iron Curtain was still up, documenting from first hand eyewitnesses, the communist hatred of Christianity and the vicious persecution endured by brothers and sisters in Christ, over many decades.
The Chairman of the Board of Frontline Fellowship for many years, Rev. Bill Bathman, documented much of this in his books Going Through and Going On.
You are wrong to assume that communism is dead. That most certainly is their propaganda. China may be practising some version of capitalism, but they are still a one-party dictatorship and there are still over a million Christians in concentration camps in China for their Faith. Notice how people in Hong Kong are protesting against the communist threats to their freedoms there.
Cuba is not yet an ‘open society’, despite the death of Fidel Castro.
North Korea is the most closed country in the world, with the most severe persecution of Christians in the world today.
Yes, Russia is now at last free of communism. But do not trivialise what they suffered for over 70 years.
Please see The Failure of Atheism and the Triumph of Faith in Russia article, which is also available as a video and as an audio.
May God continue to lead you into all truth.
