Kazakhstan: Small Churches Banned

A religion law adopted last October has been used to revoke registration from religious groups of fewer than 50 adults, and small churches are now struggling to maintain legal status. In the past, authorities fined those who met without registration, but the new religion law officially bans all unregistered religious activity. The number of religious groups in Kazakhstan has declined 13 percent, from 4,551to 3,972, since the government began enforcing the stricter regulations. A complementary law increased penalties for religious offences.

In February, government officials demanded that 579 religious groups forfeit their registration certificates and cease all religious activity. Even though the churches complied, local officials continue to visit the communities to ensure enforcement of the new regulations. ...

Yes, Islam: The Religion of Peace, is obnoxious in any country that it has sway over, Disgust at desecration of war graves in Libya. It is just another example of the Inadequacy of Islam.

In this country Jim, who is Caesar? I would advise against pointing out any elected or appointed employee of government. Think on "employee" a bit. And I think you'll find little scriptural support to say our form of government is forbidden. Therefore before you say render to Caesar, first define Caesar.

Not to worry, such a law would be illegal under the highest law of the land, therefore would be no law at all.

Answers, is your comment has something to with the original article? I also don't know which church you're talking about that has 250 people? The problem here is these new countries that came out of the southern part of the old Soviet Union are Islamic,so it is just another way of attacking Christians, the booklet, Rendering To Caesar---A Biblical Perspective On Government, here given at a site that has it as an HTML file, really goes into detail on our responsibilities to a human government and when we are forced to disobey that government--if the case arises.

Since your baptist church has about 250 and the guy's catty-corner to yours has just over 250, can't you just merge to meet the letter of this new law?

Thus you obey those in authority over you.

Gil Rugh wrote:
…If the government should ever require a Christian to do something directly contrary to Scripture, the Christian must refuse to do it. That is the only condition in which a believer is justified in God’s sight for disobeying a direct command of the government. Jesus explicitly told the apostles to take the Gospel to the whole world (see Matt. 28:19-20; Acts 1:8). Not to do so would be disobeying the command of Jesus. Similarly, if the government ever commanded us to do something directly contrary to Scripture, we would have to refuse.

Thus we see why we are fortunate to have a 1st Amendment. Churches do not need government permission to exist, nor government favor to continue.

I wonder if Jim L will point out Romans 13:1&2 again?

Answers I think what they were referring to is you comment about less than 50 is just a glorified bible study. That really is a Wierd thing to say considering that most congregations around the world have 50 or less. Even a congregation of 2 is a church since it has nothing to do with numbers or building.

No problem at all. The Christian Church's survival does not and will never depend on Human authorities approval. Nothing new for Biblical Christian Church.

If your baptist church has fewer than 50 and and the guy's across the street has fewer than 50, just merge and meet the new minimum. No big deal.

Plus any group under 50 is a glorified Bible study no matter where they meet.
