Russian Hotels Will Have Bibles in Each Room
The Christian Telegraph ^ | 8/19/13

Posted on 08/19/2013 7:50:41 PM PDT by marshmallow

Russia joins the European and world traditions according to which hotel guests have the opportunity to read the Bible in their rooms, reports the Christian Telegraph invictory.com in reference to ITAR-TASS.

On August 9th, the first 6,000 copies of the New Testament and Psalms will be transferred to one of the largest hotels in Moscow “Izmailovo,” reports ITAR-TASS citing the New Department of the Russian Orthodox Church.

This charity event is supported by the Department of Tourism and Hospitality Management of the Moscow Government and the Commission with the Diocesan Missionary Council of the capital.

Does it seem at some level an inversion is occurring?

They would if they could.

At some point one has to concede that this is a real, sincere movement over there.

I would like to email someone over there (Putin LOL) and congratulate/encourage them but you know the NSA/Obama/IRS would be all over it.

Yes! Been thinking the same thing for a few months. Russia is moving to the right of socialism and Obama and the left are running full steam ahead to communism.

Every hotel I have stayed in in he USA in the last two years has had a Gideon bible. When I stay near oak Ridge TN, the chambermaid has left the bible open, sometimes with a pointer to a particular paragraph.

And when I stay at a Marriott I get a Bible, Book of Mormon, and a bio of the hotel chain’s founder.

So are the Russian Bibles in Russian?

Here we thought we would fight the Godless russian bear in the endtimes, but now it seems the Russian Orthodox Church which hanged on through trials and tribulation may be the last bastion of Western Christendom....

Food for thought, at the very least.

Worth watching, IMHO.

You post on Free Republic. Assume EVERY one of your communications, including “private” ones where a mobile phone is in the room, is being monitored by obama’s NSA.

PS NSA puke reading this, maybe read the Constitution while you are following our booorrriiiinnnggggg lives? Or is that not allowed?

PPS I wonder why Free Republic is having such issues lately...

The speed with which this has all happened caught me off guard.

I was “saved” in 1978. We thought the world would soon end, what with the Universal Price Code Beastmark and the European Union.

Reagan came along and I enjoyed a period of health and relative prosperity, got married soon thereafter, raised children and was lulled asleep for a few decades.

Here we are, suddenly.

Next step: Obama and Putin will trade constitutions. Putin will take the U.S. Constitution. Obama will accept the old Soviet Constitution for his end of the deal.

I agree, and I also have a sick feeling, that it might take as long to dump it here, as it took to dump it in the Soviet Union. I hope it does not take that long, but I am not confident.

The last shall be first applies to nations as well as individuals.

People always think it won't happen in their lifetime.

I think they would self-identify as Eastern Christendom. Just sayin'

Good point- I’ve only ever met a few Eastern Orthodox here in the States- it’s an OLD branch distinct from Catholicism and western Protestantism...one that was meant to endure, obviously.

God Bless!
