Католическая церковь получает доступ к СМИ на Кубе

Редакционная статья
Published December 1997

За несколько месяцев до визита Иоанна Павла II на Кубу благодаря коммунистическому режиму, католическая церковь получила новые информационные инструменты для поддержания пыла верных.

Впервые за 35 лет, католическая пропаганда разрешена к трансляции и печати в государственных средствах массовой информации. Кубинцы смогут услышать новости из первых рук, о готовящемся визите папы.

Правительство также согласилось удовлетворить другие просьбы Ватикана и кубинской церкви.

Власти обязались обеспечить ограниченное транспортное обслуживание для тех, кто захочет присутствовать на мессах с участием папы в Гаване и других городах. Шаг со стороны правительства, который удивил больше всего – это разрешение круизному кораблю, который будет перевозить пилигримов из Майами, причалить в Гаване.

Прямые чартерные рейсы для пилигримов из Соединенных Штатов, также будут наделены правом на посадку.

После встречи с кубинским лидером Фиделем Кастро, представитель Ватикана, Джоаквин Наварро-Волз выразил надежду, что предстоящий визит папы на Кубу будет хорошо организован.

Кастро подчеркнул что “сама идея, что он и его окружение считают делом чести приложить все усилия таким образом, чтобы следующий визит Святого Отца,” – который он сам определил, как имеющий религиозное и историческое значение, – “стал настоящим пасторским визитом в страну.”

Однако местные организаторы говорят, что даже имея государственную поддержку, кубинским верующим будет нелегко добираться до мест проведения месс с участием папы римского.

“К сожалению, у церкви нет своих поездов, машин или грузовиков,” – сказал Орландо Маркуэз, представитель Ватикана.

P.S. Когда верстался номер, стало известно, что кубинское правительство дало разрешение на прибытие 57 священников из Латинской Америки. Они присоединятся к 640 священникам, которые уже прибыли из Ватикана и находятся на Кубе. Основным их занятием будет распространение буклетов с информацией о предстоящем визите папы и пояснением структуры церкви для неверующих.

Такое поведение кубинского правительства можно считать беспрецедентным, следует вспомнить, что правительство Фиделя Кастро изгнало с острова 132 священника после революции в 1959 году.

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.

The Real Jesus: A Defense of the Historicity and Divinity of ChristThe Real Jesus: A Defense of the Historicity and Divinity of Christ (DVD)

Who is the Real Jesus?

Ever since the dawn of modern rationalism, skeptics have sought to use textual criticism, archeology and historical reconstructions to uncover the “historical Jesus” — a wise teacher who said many wonderful things, but fulfilled no prophecies, performed no miracles and certainly did not rise from the dead in triumph over sin.

Over the past 100 years, however, startling discoveries in biblical archeology and scholarship have all but vanquished the faulty assumptions of these doubting modernists. Regrettably, these discoveries have often been ignored by the skeptics as well as by the popular media. As a result, the liberal view still holds sway in universities and impacts the culture and even much of the church.

The Real Jesus explodes the myths of these critics and the movies, books and television programs that have popularized their views. Presented in ten parts — perfect for individual, family and classroom study — viewers will be challenged to go deeper in their knowledge of Christ in order to be able to defend their faith and present the truth to a skeptical modern world – that the Jesus of the Gospels is the Jesus of history — “the same yesterday, today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8). He is the real Jesus.

Speakers include: George Grant, Ted Baehr, Stephen Mansfield, Raymond Ortlund, Phil Kayser, David Lutzweiler, Jay Grimstead, J.P. Holding, and Eric Holmberg.

Ten parts, over two hours of instruction!

The Four Keys to the Millennium (Book)

Foundations in Biblical Eschatology

By Jay Rogers, Larry Waugh, Rodney Stortz, Joseph Meiring. High quality paperback, 167 pages.

All Christians believe that their great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, will one day return. Although we cannot know the exact time of His return, what exactly did Jesus mean when he spoke of the signs of His coming (Mat. 24)? How are we to interpret the prophecies in Isaiah regarding the time when “the earth will be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea” (Isa. 11:19)? Should we expect a time of great tribulation and apostasy or revival and reformation before the Lord returns? Is the devil bound now, and are the saints reigning with Christ? Did you know that there are four hermeneutical approaches to the book of Daniel and Revelation?

These and many more questions are dealt with by four authors as they present the four views on the millennium. Each view is then critiqued by the other three authors.

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.
