Communism is the fastest growing movement in history. As late as 1903, Lenin had exactly seventeen followers. Fourteen years later he overthrew the Russian Government with only 40,000 Party members. Today the Communist Party controls over one billion people. In a little over 50 years, the Communists have conquered more people than the Christian churches have won in almost 2,000 years.
A study published on August 12, 1971, by the Senate Internal Security Subcommittee estimated that Chinese Communism has cost at least 34 million lives, and possibly as many as 64 million, in the last 50 years. The total human cost of Soviet Communism is estimated to be somewhere between 35 to 45 million lives. By comparison, a total of 15 million deaths in Hitler’s blood-purges are accredited to that infamous account.
Thus says the LORD: “Behold, a people comes from the north country, And a great nation will be raised from the farthest parts of the earth. They will lay hold on bow and spear; They are cruel and have no mercy; Their voice roars like the sea; And they ride on horses, As men of war set in array against you . . .” – Jeremiah 6:22-23
