Penance is necessary. Laugh if you will all you cynics and enjoy your suffering! "Christ's death on the cross is nonsense to those who are being lost; but for us who are being saved it is God's power" - St Paul. Christianity is the only religion where God sacrifices his son to have us share eternal life with Him. Scream your hearts out all you adversaries and possessed and declare our imperfections and failures! Side with the accuser the devil and enjoy your torment tomorrow! The effects of Communism were already manifested in Russia during the last century. To ignore it or to think somehow it will work elsewhere is to condemn oneself to complete darkness.
There are physical laws and there are also spiritual laws that govern this universe. Ignore the spiritual laws if you will but they still exist unseen as the wind. The physical world is a shadow of the spiritual world. As Malachi Martin, the author of Hostage to the Devil wrote, "A bird flies not because it has wings, but because it is a bird". There is nothing new under the sun. Human nature is the same throughout the annals of antiquity. The people of Rome no longer have slaves and persecute Christians in the arena. Follow Russia's lead out of the same tyrannical darkness. Repent or be enslaved. I remind those in the USA who have remained faithful:
"But they that hope in the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall take wings as eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint." -Isaiah 40:31
