Un reporte desde Cuba

La iglesia continua a pesar de dificultades y persecución

HABANA (FRI) – Mientras miro por la ventana de mi destartalado cuarto, en el piso doce, con vista a la ciudad de la Habana, Cuba, pienso en el pasado viaje que fue excitoso y emocionante. He tenido el privilegio de no sólo predicar en varias iglesias no registradas (no gubernamentales), sino también de alentar pastores en cultos privados.

Estos hombres y mujeres son los héroes de hoy. Han enfrentado persecución, pobreza, sacrificio, terror y siguen viviendo en el. Estos hermanos y hermanas a veces pasan hambre por causa de la crísis económica. Esto es particularmente triste cuando pensamos que sólo viven a noventa millas de los Estados Unidos.

A pesar de las increibles dificultades, ha habido una explosión del renacimiento y una increible difusión del Espíritu Santo en ésta isla. La mayoría de las iglesias están repletas de multitudes de pie, mientras en los 60s y 70s muchas iglesias fueron cerradas, hoy filas de gente salen por la puerta de enfrente. Recientemente muchas congregaciones se han multiplicado, e incluso triplicado en participación.

Quizá lo más emocionante es el hecho que el 70% de los miembros de la iglesia estén por debajo de los 30 años de edad. Existe una hambre espiritual entre la juventud cubana, como nunca antes. Sin embargo, a causa de su crecimiento, el gobierno ha empezado a oponerse a las iglesias locales viendo al cristianismo como una amenaza para su futura existencia.

En mi primer viaje a Cuba en 1993, había mas apertura hacia las iglesias por parte del gobierno. Ahora , hay un crecimiento en la sospecha, el miedo y la preocupación de que ésta revolución cristiana se les esté saliendo de las manos. Restricciones y persecución a ministros se ha convertido en algo común, algunas iglesias han sido cerradas por el gobierno. A pesar de la buena imagen de relaciones públicas internacionales creada recientemente por el liderazgo del país. En el fondo hay una gran preocupación de que la alianza con el comunismo se esté tambaleando.

Otro método que ha sido utilizado en contra del crecimiento fenomenal de la iglesia es la promoción de una religión sustituta en Cuba: la brujería. El gobierno declaró abiertamente que la Brujería/Santería es la “religión cultural oficial” de la isla. En cualquier tienda del gobierno se puede encontrar una sección entera dedicada a la venta de artificios, vestidos e instrumentos para la práctica de este sustituto espiritual demoníaco. Más que eso Cuba ha patrocinado conferencias internacionales y talleres en la introducción de la Santería.

El misionero Hudson Taylor dijo: “La gran comisión no es una opción para considerar, es un mandato para obedecer!” El sonido de la trompeta es claro. Además de enviar grupos evangelistas de “Campeones para Cristo” a Costa Rica, Honduras, Panamá, Colombia, Perú y Nicaragua, seguiremos este año con más ofensiva en Cuba.

Massacre of Innocence (DVD)

Exposing The Occult Roots of Abortion

This presentation looks at the spiritual roots of abortion and exposes the myths surrounding child killing. Little known historical facts about abortion and how they relate to modern feminism are presented logically and accurately. Has been effective in converting many to a pro-life position.

Massacre of Innocence goes where no pro-life presentation has gone before in “tearing the lid off abortion” to reveal the spiritual realities we must battle if we will bring an end to this crime. The presentation is absorbing, fast-paced, informative and incredibly devastating to any attempt to justify abortion.

“… an extraordinary statement … a powerfully articulate presentation about what abortion really means, and why a great and moral nation like the United States must not allow the slaughter to continue.”
— Congressman Robert K. Dornan

Freedom: The Model of Christian Liberty (DVD)

“Give me liberty or give me death!”

Patrick Henry’s famous declaration not only helped launch the War for Independence, it also perfectly summarized the mindset that gave birth to, and sustained, the unprecedented experiment in Christian liberty that was America.

The freedom our Founders envisioned was not freedom from suffering, want, or hard work. Nor was it freedom to indulge every appetite or whim without restraint—that would merely be servitude to a different master. No, the Founders’ passion was to live free before God, unfettered by the chains of autocracy, shackles that slowly but inexorably bind men when the governments they fashion fail to recognize and uphold freedom’s singular, foundational truth: that all men are created in the image of God, and are thereby co-equally endowed with the right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

This presentation is a similar call, not to one but many. By reintroducing the principles of freedom that gave birth to America, it is our prayer that Jesus, the true and only ruler over the nations, will once again be our acknowledged Sovereign, that we may again know and exult in the great truth that “where the Spirit of the LORD is, there is liberty” (2 Cor. 3:17).

Welcome to the Second American Revolution!

This DVD features “Liberty: The Model of Christian Liberty” along with “Dawn’s Early Light: A Brief History of America’s Christian Foundations.” Bonus features include a humorous but instructive collection of campaign ads and Eric Holmberg’s controversial YouTube challenge concerning Mitt Romney’s campaign for president.
