underground churches in Eastern Europe

John is on the road today but that doesn't stop him from being a guest on KYMS radio with Lee Lancaster. John and Lee discuss Russia's invasion of Ukraine as well as the impact on Christians in that country. As always John gives a sobering account of the persecuted church around the world, including in Nigeria and surrounding countries as well as in Iran, China, and India. There was also an incident in Australia, believe it or not, where police interrupted a Catholic mass to force parishioners to wear masks.

Why do Marxists find in Christian churches a mortal enemy?  To answer that, we fire up the way back machine to January 1992 and an interview John did with then-CNN correspondent Bud Bultman about his book Revolution by Candlelight.  There were many underground churches in Eastern Europe who led the fight against tyranny in the late 1980s.  They were ultimately successful in part because they were refuges for those opposed to the governing power.  This is why tyrants today are so threatened by the Christian church and why they'll stop at nothing to take them down. 

Since this interview aired nearly 29 years ago, Bud Bultman has retired from CNN and runs his own company in Florida.  His book, Revolution by Candlelight, can be found on Amazon.
