Having been a fan of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn these many years I yield to the near compulsion to share this with you as it sheds more than a little light on the current war against Christ in our society. Concerning Communists, in whose prison system Solzhenitsyn was converted to Christ, he wrote:
“They flee from Christ like devils from the sign of the cross.”
The cross, the symbol of all that is essential in true Christianity is not designed for a sugary presentation to the world, which through its leaders nailed Christ to it. If the cross of Christ is a mere symbol, then why not simply choose another? The answer is simple yet complex.
A glance or in depth study of the world scene reveals there is nothing in other religions to strike fear into the heart of Communistic or Fascist dictatorial systems. Yet true Christianity lies at the foundation of a true republic. Remove the invented ideas of misguided clergy, some willfully so, and in Christ’s Society you see true liberty demonstrated near sublimely.
Gutenberg’s movable type first used to print the Bible played a large part in the education of the masses in Biblical truth. From this has come the world’s longest lasting republic, the sanctity of marriage, the worth of children, the loosing of the woman from the bondage of secondary standing, ad infinitum.
Collective faith is an irritant, but personal faith in Christ is anathema to Marx.
