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.

Frank Schaeffer Will You Please Shut Up! (Book)

High Quality Paperback — 200 pages

A Reasonable Response to Christian Postmodernism

Includes a response to the book Christian Jihad by Colonel V. Doner

The title of this book is a misnomer. In reality, I am not trying to get anyone to shut up, but rather to provoke a discussion. This book is a warning about the philosophy of “Christian postmodernism” and the threat that it poses not only to Christian orthodoxy, but to the peace and prosperity our culture as well. The purpose is to equip the reader with some basic principles that can be used to refute their arguments.

Part 1 is a response to some of the recent writings by Frank Schaeffer, the son of the late Francis Schaeffer. This was originally written as a defense against Frank’s attacks on pro-life street activism – a movement that his father helped bring into being through his books, A Christian Manifesto, How Should We Then Live? and Whatever Happened to the Human Race? These works have impacted literally hundreds of thousands of Christian activists.

Part 2 is a response to Colonel Doner and his book, Christian Jihad: Neo-Fundamentalists and the Polarization of America. Doner was one of the key architects of the Christian Right that emerged in the 1980s, who now represents the disillusionment and defection many Christian activists experienced in the 1990s and 2000s. There is still great hope for America to be reformed according to biblical principles. As a new generation is emerging, it is important to recognize the mistakes that Christian activists have made in the past even while holding to a vision for the future.

Why Creeds and Confessions? (Book)

High Quality Paperback — 219 pages

Foundations in Biblical Orthodoxy

Driving down a country road sometime, you might see a church with a sign proudly proclaiming: “No book but the Bible — No creed but Christ.” The problem with this statement is that the word creed (from the Latin: credo) simply means “belief.” All Christians have beliefs, regardless of whether they are written.

Yet a single book containing the actual texts of the most important creeds of the early Church will not often be found. Out of the multitude of works on the evangelical Christian book market today, those dealing with the creeds of the Church are scarce.

Why Creeds and Confessions? provides a foundation of biblical orthodoxy as a defense against the false and truly heretical doctrines advanced by the spirit of this age.
