THE FAILURE OF ATHEISM and THE TRIUMPH OF FAITH IN RUSSIA
Atheism was the official doctrine of the Soviet Union. Throughout the history of the Soviet Union, Communist authorities vigorously enforced the ideology of Marxism/Leninism and violently persecuted Christianity.
The Gulag Archipelago
Over 49,000 churches were destroyed and over 66 million people died in the massacres, man-made famines and in the over 1,800 communist concentration camps which Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn described as the Gulag Archipelago.

Victory Over TV Porn!
Yesterday (Monday, 3 November 2014), in the Western Cape High Court, Mr Justice Bozalek, struck down the licence granted by ICASA in April 2013 to On Digital Media (formerly Top TV) permitting them to broadcast 3 pornographic TV channels.
The Justice Alliance of South Africa (JASA) and its 2 co-applicants, Cause for Justice and Doctors for Life (DFL), were awarded their costs against both ICASA and ODM.
The effect of the judgment is that broadcasting of the porn channels must cease forthwith as from today.
ODM could still appeal the decision, so please continue to pray.
The Christian Action Network presented submissions at both ICASA hearings on Top TV’s licence (the first time ICASA refused to grant Top TV a licence, the second time they renegaded and granted them the licence, prompting JASA, Doctors for Life and others to launch this case in the High Court).
Thank you for praying!

Supreme Court of Appeal Rules in Favour of Religious Freedom in Homosexual Minister Ousting Appeal
In a major victory for religious rights and the autonomy of the Church in South Africa, the Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) last week held that “… a proper respect for freedom of religion precludes our courts from pronouncing on matters of religious doctrine, which fall within the exclusive realm of the Church”.
Rev Ecclesia de Lange was “discontinued” from ministry in the Methodist Church of South Africa after she announced her same sex “marriage” from the pulpit. The Supreme Court of Appeal last week dismissed her appeal for reinstatement.

Creation Science Outreach at UCT
Last week Taryn organised for International Creation Science author and speaker Dr Philip Stott to speak at the University of Cape Town (UCT) on Has Science Disproved the Need for God? The Question and Answer session lasted for an hour afterwards, with Christians and skeptics intensely discussing issues around the existence of God and scientific evidence for Creation. This was part of a series of God’s Not Dead outreaches at UCT, which also included the screening of the God’s Not Dead film on campus.
Dr Philip Stott also spoke at the Reformation Society on Billions of Years? The Case for a Young Earth.
