Christianity Enjoys Popularity in Russia Print E-mail

While US President Barack Obama is turning Americans against Christianity, Russian President Vladimr Putin is encouraging his people to attend more Russian Orthodox worship services.

According to Pravda, "In Russia yesterday, July 19th, we celebrated Christ's Baptism called Theophany. Many Russians freely renewed their baptism by dunking themselves in the freezing water last weekend. Cities helped by drilling holes in the ice so many had access to their renewal. Unlike the West, Putin has allowed the Russian government in the past to help the Church and pledges to do so in the future. While the West is being lead into darkness, Christian freedom in Russia is embraced and celebrated by millions of Orthodox Christians."

Many Russians attend religious services regularly.

As reported by Pravda, "January 7th I enjoyed Christmas with our families and the highlight was going to church that day. All churches were packed and there was little room for us to move but the glory of God surrounded us. Our souls and our hearts were healed and overjoyed. A renewal that gave us wings to overcome the sufferings of earth. Yes, the cross is easy and the burden is light as he said."

Additionally, Obama failed to take his wife and children to Church to celebrate Christmas during their vacation in Hawaii.
