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]

6:57 PM - Vladimir Putin Seeks to Silence Bible Believing Christians

Now the real Putin is beginning to show himself.

Russian Government Seeks to Squelch Churches

Regarding religion, the "Yarovaya law" bans proselytizing, preaching, or disseminating religious materials outside of specially designated places. You can talk about God in your house, as long as there are no unbelievers present. As Christianity Today notes, you will not be able to invite someone to church with an email. This radically relegates Christianity to government-approved buildings at government-designated times. If you break the law, there is a fine of up to $780 for an individual and $15,500 for an organization. Foreign visitors who violate the law face deportation.

A reading of the bill appears to target religious groups outside the government endorsed Russian Orthodox church. David Aikman, history professor and foreign affairs expert, told Christianity Today, "The Russian Orthodox church is part of a bulwark of Russian nationalism stirred up by Vladimir Putin. . . Everything that undermines that action is a real threat, whether that's evangelical Protestant missionaries or anything else."
