Pastor of the church New Generation Alexey Ledyaev visited the United States within the international human rights conference “Watchmen on the Walls”. Pastor Alexey told about the presidential election in the United States, reports Watchmen on the Walls.
“This is a real revolution,” he said. “Literally people had to make a choice whether America would be a Christian country or would follow the way of depravity. I have never seen such a huge number of people taking part in election. Americans haven’t either. Everything was moving there: just a couple of days before the election we took part in a rally in support of the Proposition 8 that will define marriage as a union between a man and a woman. Just imagine this: driving rain, a huge number of Christians on one side of Sun-Rise Boulevard in the capital city of California and a crowd of gays and lesbians insulting us on the other side.”
As pastor Alexey said it was extremely important for Christians to be active in that time. And it was the exact reason why The Watchmen on the Walls movement united different people and ministers all around the world. “It is such a joy to see many American pastors join our movement,” said Alexey. “But it is so disappointing to see the “Church Fathers” who really have a lot of influence in America, to just be silent about the moral issues and laws.”
Many American ministers and pastors agree that Watchmen on the Walls is very important, especially during the time when secularism and ungodliness take over this country.
“Our trip here this year has been very successful,” says pastor Alexey. ”In thirty days we visited four states and had thirty services. The schedule was incredibly tense but our team has done great job!”
The conference Watchmen on the Walls organized last year stirred serious attacks from the liberal press, proponents of homosexual movement and pro-gay organizations that blamed Christian human rights workers in rousing hatred. Meanwhile as experts say such sensation in the press gave Watchmen on the Walls even more popularity and some social workers had to stand in protection of the freedom of speech and religion.
“America will never be the same,” said pastor Alexey Ledyaev. “This country is standing in face of global changes no matter what the result of the presidential election is.”
