 Christians in Russia Refuse to Stop Sharing the Gospel Despite Putin's Ban on Evangelism


The Slavic Centre for Law and Justice, an affiliate of the American Center for Law and Justice, said a new manner of carrying out missionary work in Russia will have to be established.

The law bans all missionary activities in residential areas and requires Christians who want to share their faith with others, even on the internet, to obtain authorization documents from a religious association. It also imposes a fine of $75 to $765 if the violator is a Russian citizen, and a fine of up to $15,265 in case of an organization, while foreigners would be deported, The Christian Post reported last month.

"A number of restrictions on missionary work were introduced and legal liability was put in place for the violation of these new laws," the SCLJ explained, promoting a webinar on Thursday that will address the issue. ...

Would you share the gospel with others in North America if you could suffer "a fine of $75 to $765" everyday?

Brother probably not. Fact of the matter is many of us are not sharing the faith even in the relative freedom God has given us. I for one stand convicted.

The thing is the church in Russia has a history of persecution. The church has survived the likes of Lenin, Stalin, Khrushchev and other communist leaders who have sought to destroy the witness of Christ in Russia. The enemy did not succeed. And he will not succeed in this case either.

Again these are simply my thoughts.

We definitely need to stay walking and living closer to Christ and the Holy Spirt but what is evangelism?

Is living a life set apart evangelism? Also, Having the fruit of the Spirit will set you apart as it is!!! Just asking!!!

 Re:

Well, being a living witness and having a good testimony is a good thing, but it's not evangelism. Evangelism is sharing the Gospel message about Jesus, sin, the cross & repentance & faith unto salvation.

This scheme looks like the gov is strapped for money and is one way to squeeze it out of Believers - just supposing, I admit.

But what if Believers refuse to pay and have to sit it out in jail?

On the other hand, I am also aware of cults that gone into the country and misled many. People are so gullible they will swallow anything hook/line/sinker, or so I am told.

Still, this forebodes a sober day for sincere Believes.

 Re: Christians in Russia refuse to stop

Russia was a Christian, (orthodox)nation long ago in the days of the Tsars. But the Church of Satan, the one who has someone that says they are in place of Christ, prepared their men to go and overthrow the nation, bring it back under their control *(Take their mark)*. Russia didn't invent communism. So Lenin and Stalin were the Jesuit trained individuals who introduced Communism and socialism into Russia. Doing so brought atheism and godlessness. Russia and Ukraine have cast those dudes off and returned back to orthodox Christianity. So we must overthrow and destroy Ukraine and Russia. Can't have any competition.

Now they have NATO at the door: "Take the mark or else". That's what's really happening. All sorts of restrictions of buying and selling are increased until you yield. Same as the crusades, Obey or else. Today ISIS is the creation to make Christian martyrs.

That's what's happened in America. You see Jesuits always in office, like Biden, Cain, setting there to make sure their masters bidding is done. We need to Pull our heads out of the sand.

America has been overthrown, moved into socialism and now atheism. Take a look around. Real believers are being forced out of the churches into the wilderness because there is nothing in the houses of Bethel today.( Amos ). Look at all the preachers on TV and their message.

The house of Esau or Edom has this perpetual hatred for Israel. Israel said recently, "There is no two state solution". The house of Edom says "The Palestinian state is recognized".

So you have these two nations still at it, Esau and Jacob.
Nation against nation just as it says in Matthew 24. You can even call them King of the North and King of the South. The temple of Esau will be built on the holy site as I saw in Israeli news and on this site. To many of Israel it looks like a good thing... But In Obadiah we see where saviors go to MT Zion to judge Mt Esau who has taken over MT Zion...
God will not have any part of that.

So why does Putin not want evangelism in Russia? He knows that CIA Jesuits will flow in as before and atheism will return.

We live in a dangerous deceptive time. Everything we read or hear can mislead us.

Things continue just as from the beginning:

The sons of Cain still hate the Abel's of this world.
(perhaps there is some significance to Hillary's running
mate's name.)

We still must choose which tree we will serve

Jacob was troubled by Esau and Laban long ago and he will be again.

We can't buy righteousness, we must be reconciled back to Christ as the story of Joseph teaches us.

We must address the Pharaoh's in our lives.

Like Rahab the harlot story, The two witnesses of this world have been visiting the harlot churches all over this world finding those who would believe that destruction is coming and would hide that in their life, will find that all in their home will be protected that are under the scarlet covered blood in that day.

The two witnesses came to Jerusalem long ago, Elijah and Jesus. Looking for fruit and bringing the gospel message.
Jesus had creation power, whatever he asked happened. He caused eyes to pop and jaws to drop just like the coming two witnesses will do. (Malachi) Without a doubt there was rejoicing in Jerusalem when Jesus and John the Baptist were both out of sight and out of mind. I imagine there were feasts and dancing. The Bible doesn't say.

The mark of the beast has been around a long time. Obey my way or else. It's just fixing to intensify. We are all going to be tested to see whom we serve.
