Men Have Forgotten God – Alexander Solzhenitsyn

With the recent unrest around the country, I found myself wondering why churches and religious leaders are not standing up for this nonsense.

“Under the decades-long assault and militant radicalism of many so-called “liberal” and “progressive” elites, God has been progressively erased from our public and educational institutions, to be replaced with all manner of delusion, perversion, corruption, violence, decadence, and insanity.”

The people who actually lived through the Russian Revolution and the Communist takeover are hard to ignore. Why we seem to praise the people who created the trouble, we forget the ones that can tell us the actual truth of what was going on.

“Dostoevsky warned that “great events could come upon us and catch us intellectually unprepared.” This is precisely what has happened. And he predicted that “the world will be saved only after it has been possessed by the demon of evil.””

I think it can be said that that evil is truly upon us now. And we don’t really recognize it.

“It was Dostoevsky, once again, who drew from the French Revolution and its seeming hatred of the Church the lesson that “revolution must necessarily begin with atheism.” That is absolutely true. But the world had never before known a godlessness as organized, militarized, and tenaciously malevolent as that practiced by Marxism.”

Among conservative pundits on TV, the phrase French Revolution has been coming up frequently.

I really don’t have enough understanding of History to see all of this, but I do believe that this could be what is happening in America today.

Young people who are doing the Looting and rioting have zero sense of History.

“For tens of millions of laymen access to the Church was blocked, and they were forbidden to bring up their children in the Faith: religious parents were wrenched from their children and thrown into prison, while the children were turned from the faith by threats and lies…”

During the recent lockdowns, abortion clinics and liquor stores were considered essential businesses.

In contrast, churches were severely restricted and then the number of people that could be in a service are even forbidden to take their masks off to sing.

How far away are we from Russia in 1920? Actually by that time oh, it was a Soviet Union.

One thing I have to do over this next year and fix myself.

I’m not sure how much traditional Christianity has to offer me, but I can get back to my interest in Buddhism and Jainism.
