It is critically important that Bible translations remain true to the original text. The truth will set us free if it is presented…truthfully. Unfortunately, throughout the ages, as well as today, translators play with the cultural perception of the biblical message. Such playfulness often goes beyond the bona fide search for proper and adequate communication of the Word and changes the meaning of certain passages of Scripture. Such changes can confuse the reader or worse — lead to error and apostasy.
It is rather unfortunate that the church in Redding has decided to remove this video due to copyright claims. I am not familiar with the issues surrounding such removal, but whatever the complaints might have been they do not merit the removal of this 50+ min worship song. Read my previously posted comment below as to the value of this, now removed, video.
Our new volume, entitled, Church-State Relations After the Fall of Communism, and containing 10 articles from an equal number of E. Orthodox and Evangelical authors, just came off the press (2013).
In November 2012 I participated in the first global home education conference in Berlin. On these links you can both read my statement and listen to the session where I was able to present. Home education is a very important format for Christians training their children in the faith and in proper critical thinking. Therefore it will remain part of our work of spreading the Gospel and doing justice.
You may watch the whole session on the Court of Law at the conference here (Viktor is the second speaker at about 11 min).
I grew up in communist Bulgaria when public false worship of the national false god was mandatory. One of the major roles of the government, and why not the main purpose, was to ensure obedience to the ideology of the ruling cult – the communist party.
The photograph o the left has recorded a so called “manifestation” of the people in Bulgaria under communism. All schools, universities, factories, and all workers had to show up for these parades and shout worshipful slogans to the communist party, the state and its leaders. The socialist utopia was at its highest frenzy.

The Scriptures are filled with witness of how the believers’ faith collides with the deception of ungodly leaders in government and society. One such example we find in Daniel 6.
The excellence in Daniel’s work for the king becomes a source of envy for his “co-workers” in ruling the regions of the empire. They realize that they will not be able to catch him in a work-related blunder so they decide that his faith will be the reason for his fall. The anti-religious freedom lobbyists go to the king and ask him to pass a law that will mandate that for 30 days no one will pray to any other god but him, the king. “Not a bad idea,” the ruler thought.
