Call To Discernment

Calling Christians to Biblical Christianity. Christians must have discernment in all areas of life in this end time of deception, realizing also that American leadership of both political parties are leading us into the New World Order of the coming antichrist. Do not be conformed to this world. Rom. 12:2. Expose the deeds of darkness. Eph. 5:11. "He that is not zealous against error, is not likely to be zealous for truth." J.C. Ryle ----- [NEW AND IMPROVED BLOG UNDER CONSTRUCTION]

10:42 PM - Russia Has Officially Criminalized Biblical Christianity

Putin shows his true colors. No friend to Christians.

Yesterday, Russia's new anti-terrorism laws, which restrict Christians from evangelizing outside of their churches, went into effect.

The "Yarovaya package" requires missionaries to have permits, makes house churches illegal, and limits religious activity to registered church buildings, among other restrictions. Individuals who disobey could be fined up to $780, while organizations could be fined more than $15,000.

Forum 18 offers an analysis of the laws and their ramifications for Protestants and other non-Orthodox believers. World Watch Monitor compiled the worried reactions of Russian evangelical leaders and concerned observers.

The new laws will "create conditions for the repression of all Christians," wrote Russia's Baptist Council of Churches in an open letter. "Any person who mentions their religious view or reflections out loud or puts them in writing, without the relevant documents, could be accused of 'illegal missionary activity.'"
