Are you ready to face the persecution that naturally comes with the communism that is knocking at America’s door? You need to meet the Wurmbrands. Though gone on to their eternal reward, Richard and Sabina Wurmbrand live on in the hearts and memories of those who are grateful for and encouraged by their faithful and diligent stand for the gospel of Jesus Christ during the days of Romania’s communist takeover. They live on in the books they’ve written (here are two of several: Marx and Satan—free download here; The Pastor’s Wife—free download here). They also live on in the films that have been made of them. I invite you to meet the Wurmbrands tomorrow (this Friday) in the latest film describing their lives before and after coming to Christ. It could easily be called a training session in how to rightly face persecution. NOTICE: This film is rated PG 13. There are scenes that could be frightening – which is normative in communist states, gunfire, and the subject of suicide. Each parent must decide if their child is ready for such topics as these.
FREE MOVIE NIGHT
Friday, March 4, 2022 at 1:00 PM & 7:00 PM
Voice of the Martyrs movie Sabina: Tortured for Christ, the Nazi Years
Join us at American Decency headquarters (203 E. Main; Fremont, MI)
Warning: This movie may cause you to reevaluate your Christian walk and prompt you to take your relationship with Christ more seriously.
And yet, that is exactly what is needed for such a time as this. None of us knows what we will yet face or how soon we may have to live our lives in the face of communism. In many ways we are experiencing it on a lesser level than many across the world; yet it is in some small measure here. Russian dissident Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn addresses the question of resistance in his well-renowned work, The Gulag Archipelago, “At what exact point, then, should one resist? When one’s belt is taken away? When one is ordered to face into a corner? When one crosses the threshold of one’s home?”
Richard and Sabina Wurmbrand offer an answer to Solzhenitsyn’s question with their lives; it’s an answer that can only be given by those who are truly committed to Christ in the face of such opposition.
Their answer was to resist at the most basic level, to resist communist thinking with their heart, mind, and soul. Their answer was to resist by deepening their walk with Jesus, removing the things which others may see as little; yet, recognizing, the things we allow into our minds will either move us closer to or work to block us from holy living and deeper communion with God. Their answer was to resist by showing love to others and not being easily offended by those who had wrong thinking or hated them. Their answer was to resist by showing truth, living truth, and helping others to see truth.
I can offer you no better reason to come and see Sabina: Tortured for Christ, the Nazi Years tomorrow at the ADA building than this: You will be encouraged to a deeper faith and walk with Christ, even in the face of persecution, for the glory of God!
