The Somber Prophecy of a Russian Novelist

During his Templeton Prize Lecture, May 1983, in London, the Russian writer Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn answered the question why the Russian revolution which killed some sixty million people happened. His answer, “Men have forgotten God; that’s why all this happened.”

The World Will Be Possessed By the Demon of Evil

Solzhenitsyn quoted another famous Russian novelist, Fyodor Dostoevsky who predicted that “revolution must necessarily begin with atheism.” And, “The world will be saved only after it has been possessed by the demon of evil.” Solzhenitsyn adds, “Whether it really will be saved we shall have to wait and see.”

West Experiences A Communist Invasion From Within

The Russian novelist foretold that the West has yet to experience a Communist invasion. He saw this coming because of a gradual erosion of religion from within, which – quote – “is more dangerous than any attempt to assault religion violently from without.” He points out that in the West “the concepts of good and evil have been ridiculed for several centuries” and that it is not considered shameful to make concessions to evil.

Hatred is the Mark of Today’s “Free World”

Solzhenitsyn saw that “Atheist teachers in the West are bringing up a younger generation in a spirit of hatred of their own society.” And, “This eager fanning of the flames of hatred is becoming the mark of today’s free world.” He saw that “this deliberately nurtured hatred then spreads to all that is alive, to life itself.”

The Solution

This is what Solzhenitsyn proposes as a solution, “We must first recognize the horror perpetrated not by some outside force, not by class or national enemies, but within each of us individually, and within every society. This is especially true of a free and highly developed society, for here, in particular, we have surely brought everything upon ourselves, of our own free will. We ourselves, in our daily unthinking selfishness, are pulling tight that noose…”

The statement was perfectly consistent with his lifelong work, from before the time when Karol Wojtyla as a young priest took part in drafting the groundbreaking 1965 Vatican II document that ended centuries of Christian anathema of the Jews. The document condemned “hatred and persecutions of the Jews,” affirmed the validity of Judaism as a religious way of life with which Catholics must establish relations of “mutual knowledge and respect” and repudiated the idea of “the Jewish people as one rejected, cursed, or guilty of deicide…”
Never one for pompous or pious speeches, the pontiff took often revolutionary steps to make that edict come true.

This is basik, you should turn away from worldly books, such as Webster and study Holy Skripture. This will help you from your ignorance and pride.
Stop being a worldly, jew boot licker, and learn the Christian Faith, The Way.

what a great mind- having read the Gulag Archipelago I realize that we are living in chilling times. The first chapters of this book should be required reading for all high school seniors. This book is a giant of literature!

Here's some news for you ʎǝoſ,

Jesus was a Jew. He was born of a Jewish mother, in Galilee, a Jewish part of the world. All of his friends, associates, colleagues, disciples, all of them were Jews. He regularly worshipped in Jewish communal worship, what we call synagogues. He preached from Jewish text, from the Bible. He celebrated the Jewish festivals. He went on pilgrimage to the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem where he was under the authority of priests.... He lived, was born, lived, died, taught as a Jew. This is obvious to any casual reader of the gospel text. What's striking is not so much that he was a Jew but that the gospels make no pretense that he wasn't. The gospels have no sense yet that Jesus was anything other than a Jew. The gospels don't even have a sense that he came to found a new religion, an idea completely foreign to all the gospel text, and completely foreign to Paul. That is an idea which comes about only later. So, to say that he was a Jew is saying a truism, is simply stating an idea that is so obvious on the face of it, one wonders it even needs to be said. But, of course, it does need to be said because we all know what happens later in the story, where it turns out that Christianity becomes something other than Judaism and as a result, Jesus in retrospect is seen not as a Jew, but as something else, as a founder of Christianity. But, of course, he was a Jew.

Not all Christians are Catholic yet these individuals are indeed Christian since they follow the teachings of Jesus Christ. Some Catholics are not Christian in that they do NOT follow the teachings of Jesus Christ. Examples of these ostensible Catholics in name only abound includuing priests, bishops, cardinals and even guess who?)

But over the past few years, conservative Catholic voices have emerged to criticize the pope’s approach and methods. Much of this criticism centers around Francis’s tacit approval of parish priests giving communion to divorced-and-remarried couples. It’s a controversial practice forbidden by the Catholic catechism on the grounds that divorce is not considered permissible. While Francis’s supporters defend his decision to, essentially, separate out (more rigid) church doctrine from (more lenient) parish practice, his critics argue that doing so threatens the moral consistency of the Catholic Church.

Alexandr also wrote that it was NOT a russian revolution, rather it was a brutal genocide perpetrated by jews.

The Nobel Prize-winning author Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn (a man with a fervent Russian Orthodox faith) not only exposed the follies, pretensions, and crimes of Marxist-Leninism but also testified to the power infused into the human spirit by its Maker. As a dissident, Solzhenitsyn proved such a nuisance to Soviet authorities that they deported him in 1974, leading him to take up residence in Montpelier, Vermont.

Solzhenitsyn was an icon of freedom to the Western world, but he did not return the esteem it heaped on him. As a man of enormous Christian faith, he regarded the West as spiritually deteriorated, and he sometimes baffled supporters and critics alike with his criticisms of Western democracy. In a searing speech to Harvard's graduating class of 1978, he observed that "a decline in courage may be the most striking feature that an outside observer notices in the West today."

“The press has become the greatest power within the Western countries,” he also insisted, “more powerful than the legislature, the executive and the judiciary. One would then like to ask: by what law has it been elected and to whom is it responsible?”
www.catholicworldreport.com/…/revisiting-alek…

What Solzhenitsyn had long predicted came to pass: the Soviet Union ceased to be. In 1994, at age 75, a bearded, patriarchal Solzhenitsyn returned from exile to his native Russia, where he was welcomed as a hero, the prophet of the post-Soviet era. But his home had become strange to him. He had imagined himself as the conscience of his native land, and he certainly commanded a great deal of cultural authority — he was given his own TV show, and in 2007 Vladimir Putin visited him personally to present him with a state medal. But he was never quite in step with the new Russia. To Solzhenitsyn, Russia meant the old Russia of the 19th century, a nostalgic, spiritual Russia of the soul. To Russians, Russia was something else — an increasingly Western and forward-looking and materialistic nation.

Solzhenitsyn died of heart failure near Moscow on 3 August 2008, at the age of 89.
