Религиозные события 1997 года

Редакционная статья
Published May 1998

В ушедшем году, религия показала свою возрастающую роль в жизни всего мира. Так по мнению американских журналистов, многие события так или иначе связанные с религиозной жизнью представляли интерес не только для журналистов и читателей духовной периодики, но и для их коллег-репортеров и наблюдателей светских масс-медиа.

“Сегодня люди все чаще представляют себя в роли духовных искателей, это приводит к тому, что само понятие религии трактуется шире,” – говорит Дэвид Хейм, редактор христианского журнала “Крисчен Сенчури”, издающемся в Чикаго, – “также, такие вопросы как клонирование и «право на смерть», которые не принято было обсуждать, теперь заставляют задумываться многих о фундаментальных моральных и религиозных материях.”

Ассоциация религиозных репортеров назвала историей года материал о жизни и смерти матери Терезы, за ней следует марш мужчин “Промис Киперс” в Вашингтоне.

В то же время редакция “Крисчен Сенчури” назвала самоубийство 39 членов секты “Небесные врата” религиозным событием года, а также протесты Госдепартамента США против законов ограничивающих свободу вероисповедания (здесь, конечно же имеется в виду “Закон о свободе совести и религиозных объединениях”, принятый Госдумой России).

Среди прочих событий 1997 года называются также генетические эксперименты, такие как клонирование овечки Долли в Шотландии и дискуссия о возможности и последствиях клонирования человека. Кроме этого немалый резонанс вызвало бойкотирование Конвенцией Южных баптистов компании “Уолт Дисней”, конфликт между ортодоксами и светски настроенными евреями в Израиле, наступление на “домашние церкви” в Китае. Однако, конечно же, основной головной болью блюстителей прав человека с Капитолийского холма является вышеупомянутый российский “Закон о свободе совести”, ограничивающий деятельность сект нетрадиционных для русской культуры.

Textile Help

The Silent Scream (DVD) Eight Languages

“When the lives of the unborn are snuffed out, they often feel pain, pain that is long and agonizing.” – President Ronald Reagan to National Religious Broadcasters Convention, January 1981

Ronald Reagan became convinced of this as a result of watching The Silent Scream – a movie he considered so powerful and convicting that he screened it at the White House.

The modern technology of real-time ultrasound now reveals the actual responses of a 12-week old fetus to being aborted. As the unborn child attempts to escape the abortionist’s suction curette, her motions can be seen to become desperately agitated and her heart rate doubles. Her mouth opens – as if to scream – but no sound can come out. Her scream doesn’t have to remain silent, however … not if you will become her voice. This newly re-mastered version features eight language tracks and two bonus videos.

“… a high technology “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” arousing public opinion just as Harriet Beecher Stowe’s 1852 antislavery novel ignited the abolitionist movement.” – Sen. Gordon Humphrey, Time Magazine

Languages: English, Spanish, French, South Korean, Chinese, Russian, Portuguese, Japanese

Dr. Francis Schaeffer - A Christian Manifesto (DVD)

That Swiss Hermit Strikes Again!

Dr. Schaeffer, who was one of the most influential Christian thinkers in the twentieth century, shows that secular humanism has displaced the Judeo-Christian consensus that once defined our nation’s moral boundaries. Law, education, and medicine have all been reshaped for the worse as a consequence. America’s dominant worldview changed, Schaeffer charges, when Christians weren’t looking.

Schaeffer lists two reasons for evangelical indifference: a false concept of spirituality and fear. He calls on believers to stand against the tyranny and moral chaos that come when humanism reigns-and warns that believers may, at some point, be forced to make the hard choice between obeying God or Caesar. A Christian Manifesto is a thought-provoking and bracing Christian analysis of American culture and the obligation Christians have to engage the culture with the claims of Christ.

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.

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.
