Alexander Solzhenitsyn's Triumphant Return

By Jay Rogers
Published December 1, 1991

Alexander Solzhenitsyn claimed two decades ago, “One word of truth shall outweigh the whole world.” Sophisticated observers chuckled at his naivete, but the fall of communism in Eastern Europe has given Solzhenitsyn the last laugh as Vaclav Havel in Czechoslovakia, Lazlo Tokes in Romania, and Lech Walesa in Poland all confronted tanks and machine guns with words of truth, paving the way toward a new future.

In October, the Soviet chief prosecutor dropped treason charges against the Russian author who has been in exile since 1971. Solzhenitsyn was the first author to alert the West to the horrible realities he experienced in Stalin’s labor camps after World War Two. The Gulag Archipelago, his Nobel Prize winning work, has been released to the Russian public as well. Although his works have been popular in the Soviet Union, it was only recently that he was given permission to return.

Now the writer’s intentions may seriously influence the course of events in Russia and other parts of the former union republics. His new book, Rebuilding Russia, makes it clear that he is getting ready to get involved in Russian politics. “Upon my return to Russia,” says Solzhenitsyn, “I will immediately become immersed in other concerns that I in common with everyone.”

When Solzhenitsyn ends his 20 year exile, he will return to Russia with his own political program for reform. This is a man who knows and understands Russia better than most democrats that are now trying to reform it. He has a controversial but clear vision for the country’s future, something that many other figures in Russian politics lack.

In a National Review article (Sept. 23, 1991, p.24), Solzhenitsyn said: “The strength or weakness of a society depends more on the level of its spiritual life than on its level of industrialization. Neither a market economy nor even general abundance constitutes the crowning achievement of human life. If a nation’s spiritual energies have been exhausted, it will not be saved from collapse by the most perfect government structure or by any industrial development.”

This understanding of the great need for the spiritual revitalization of Russia is the main thrust of Solzhenitsyn’s thinking. He knows that those who are characterized in the Western press as reformers are a relatively small group of intellectuals who have capitalized on the widespread resentment of communism but have not yet outlined a viable agenda which the people will endorse. Yeltsin’s hesitation and vacillation on crucial issues will cause him to lose his stature as a national hero. It will then be time for a viable force to step in.

Solzhenitsyn’s timing will be determined by political ripeness. By spring or summer the disillusionment will be widespread. His plan favors dismissing the non-Slavic republics from the union. The new nation will be named the Union of Russian Republics of Europe and Asia. He speaks for the restoration of traditional rural farming communities in Russia. He is not an advocate of democracy, but advocates strong but enlightened central power. The new republic would be based on traditional Christian values, moral order, restraint, modesty and other virtues that have always been respected by Russians.

Although it is unlikely that, at age 72, Solzhenitsyn would seek a political office, he may exert a tremendous ideological, spiritual, and political influence on every facet of Russian life. He will become Russia’s foremost prophet-statesman.

The Abortion Matrix: Defeating Child Sacrifice and the Culture of Death (DVD)

Download the free Study Guide!

Is there a connection between pagan religion and the abortion industry?

This powerful presentation traces the biblical roots of child sacrifice and then delves into the social, political and cultural fall-out that this sin against God and crime against humanity has produced in our beleaguered society.

Conceived as a sequel and update to the 1988 classic, The Massacre of Innocence, the new title, The Abortion Matrix, is entirely fitting. It not only references abortion’s specific target – the sacred matrix where human beings are formed in the womb in the very image of God, but it also implies the existence of a conspiracy, a matrix of seemingly disparate forces that are driving this holocaust.

The occult activity surrounding the abortion industry is exposed with numerous examples. But are these just aberrations, bizarre yet anomalous examples of abortionists who just happen to have ties to modern day witchcraft? Or is this representative of something deeper, more sinister and even endemic to the entire abortion movement?

As the allusion to the film of over a decade ago suggests, the viewer may learn that things are not always as they appear to be. The Abortion Matrix reveals the reality of child-killing and strikes the proper moral chord to move hearts to fulfill the biblical responsibility to rescue those unjustly sentenced to death and to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves (Proverbs 24:11,12; 31:8,9).

Speakers include: George Grant, Peter Hammond, RC Sproul Jr., Paul Jehle, Lou Engle, Rusty Thomas, Flip Benham, Janet Porter and many more.

Go Stand Speak (DVD)

With “preaching to the lost” being such a basic foundation of Christianity, why do many in the church seem to be apathetic on this issue of preaching in highways and byways of towns and cities?

Is it biblical to stand in the public places of the world and proclaim the gospel, regardless if people want to hear it or not?

Does the Bible really call church pastors, leaders and evangelists to proclaim the gospel in the public square as part of obedience to the Great Commission, or is public preaching something that is outdated and not applicable for our day and age?

These any many other questions are answered in this documentary.

The Beast of Revelation IdentifiedThe Beast of Revelation: Identified (DVD)

Who is the dreaded beast of Revelation?

Now at last, a plausible candidate for this personification of evil incarnate has been identified (or re-identified). Ken Gentry’s insightful analysis of scripture and history is likely to revolutionize your understanding of the book of Revelation — and even more importantly — amplify and energize your entire Christian worldview!

Historical footage and other graphics are used to illustrate the lecture Dr. Gentry presented at the 1999 Ligonier Conference in Orlando, Florida. It is followed by a one-hour question and answer session addressing the key concerns and objections typically raised in response to his position. This presentation also features an introduction that touches on not only the confusion and controversy surrounding this issue — but just why it may well be one of the most significant issues facing the Church today.

Ideal for group meetings, personal Bible study — for anyone who wants to understand the historical context of John’s famous letter “… to the seven churches which are in Asia.” (Revelation 1:4)
