Prayer & Praise Update - Moving Mountains
Today we are moving mountains of Bibles and books. Just three weeks ago we received the joyful report from the field: "Jordan crossed!" signalling the successful delivery into Zimbabwe of over 30 tonnes of Bibles and Christian books. God's provision, protection and perfect timing were evident throughout the mission.
The HEART and SOUL of KARL MARX
In his Manifesto of 1848, Karl Marx wrote: "The theory of the communists may be summed up in a single sentence: Abolition of private property." "You reproach us with intending to do away with your property. Precisely so: that is just what we intend."
Have We Adopted Marxist Ideas?
To this end, he advocated:
1.Abolition of property rights and application of all rents to the state.
2.A heavy progressive graduated income tax.
3.Abolition of all rights of inheritance by taxing inheritance.
4.Confiscation of the property of emigrants and all rebels to the state.
5.Centralisation of credit in banks of the state, by means of a national bank with an exclusive monopoly on money supply.
6.Centralisation of the means of communication and transport in the hands of the state.
7.Factories and instruments of production to be owned by the state; wilderness areas to be nationalised by the state.
8.Equal obligation of all to be put to work by the state.
9.Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture.
10.Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of all the distinction between town and country, by more equable distribution of the populous over the country.
11.Free and compulsory education for all children in state schools.

A term of terror in the Soviet Union, the KGB was the Committee for State Security of the Soviet Union. Initially it was named the Cheka (Emergency Committee) and founded 20 December 1917, by the instruction of Vladimir Lenin. The Cheka was established by Felix Dzerzhinsky. The Cheka was tasked by the Soviet Politburo with arresting, torturing and executing many tens-of-thousands of dissidents, deserters, reactionaries and counter revolutionaries.
NKVD and the GULAG
In 1922 the Cheka was renamed the NKVD (People's Commissariat for Internal Affairs). The NKVD included the regular public police force of the USSR, including traffic police, border guards and archives. The NKVD is most notorious for running the GULAG forced labour camps, conducting mass extra-judicial executions, espionage, political assassinations and enforcing Stalinist policy within communist movements in other countries. GULAG was the acronym for Main Administration of Corrective Labour Camps.
