"A new law in Russia that had prompted Christian groups to call for a day of prayer and fasting before its final adoption has been signed into law and now will restrict even the most innocuous conversations about faith, according to reports. “The new law will require any sharing of the Christian faith – even a casual conversation – to have prior authorization from the state,” reported Barnabas Fund, which aids persecuted Christians worldwide. “This includes something as basic as an emailed invitation for a friend to attend church. Even in a private home, worship and prayer will only be allowed if there are no unbelievers present,” the organization said. “Churches will also be held accountable for the activities of their members. So if, for example, a church member mentions their faith in conversation with a work colleague, not only the church member but also the church itself could be punished, with individuals facing fines of up to 50,000 rubles ($770)." –Source
Most Christians will ignore this of course. But only for a short while. Why do I say that? Eventually the government will place infiltrate acting like Christians into each of the churches, gatherings, or even areas where some Christians meet and after acting like a Christian, the other Christians will believe they are friends and therefore begin to share truth with them. Next, those government moles will report back to their superior and the Christians will be fined, persecuted, jailed and even killed.
As we see in the article, the law states that even if a member of the church goes about sharing their faith, that member (if they truly are one) can be fined and then the church itself can be punished. So, what's to stop the church from being infiltrated (as they already are) to where the government employee goes out sharing his so called 'faith' using the church name as their base of operations with someone they know will report them, (like a homosexual, pedophile or a Muslim) and then the church is shut down by the government even though the infiltrator was never actually a member.
This type of antichristian mindset will spread far and wide, but first it will be easily implemented in Socialist and Communist nations. And as soon as Rome forces all the rest into a Socialist format, like they are doing here in the USA, making Christianity 100% illegal will be as easy as making Islam 100% legal.
The article also stated "When Barnabas Fund called for a day of prayer to oppose the plan, reports noted that such restrictions on discussing religion in public long have been sought by Muslim majority countries, which cast it as a religious freedom issue, claiming that no one should “disparage” any religion, although the only beneficiary appears to be Islam." Sound familiar? It should. It's exactly what happened in China when Rome CONvinced their officials to have 'freedom of religion' wherein only a Government emulation of Catholicism is considered legal. In short, you have 'religious freedom' in China as long as the religion you choose is a Government approved religion. Is this what's happening in Russia? The article is suspiciously quiet on the Islamic religion but it speaks of the Christian faith left and right.
The article also went on to say: "It also toughens punishments for extremism and violence, boosts the government’s ability to do surveillance and makes it criminal to fail to tell authorities about certain crimes. It also, the report said, “boosts state access to private communications, requiring telecom companies to store all telephone conversations, text messages, videos, and picture messages for six months and make this data available to the authorities. Encrypted programs must provide authorities a key, and the law “also increases the number of crimes that 14-year-olds can be prosecuted for and restricts the activity of religious preachers."
Now do you see why the NSA spying using the programmable cell phones that every citizen has now became the norm so quickly in America? I can see how the violent religion of the Muslim will be used as the 'reason' for the law. But it is painfully obvious how it will mostly affect Christians. Reason being is, Christians are known to be passive in nature. But the obedient ones know all about a similar law put for 2000 years ago which prompted the phrase "we ought to obey God rather than men." (Acts 5:29)
I am sure many Christians will cave and clam up. But the strong ones will obey the calling of the Lord and proclaim the present truth no matter what. And I am also very aware that the Muslims will continue on with their violent ways prompting even more restrictions and more severe penalties against the Christians.
That all being said; you may think it's convenient and fun to have a cellphone filled with social apps to keep in contact with your friends or even a Facebook account. Soon, that fun and convenience will be the main reason you and someone you love is either dragged of the jail or the grave. As prophesied the final moves will be rapid ones. And anyone with a Bible in hand can see it is in fact happening very fast!
