Mikhail Gorbachev Needs Jesus Too

Mikhail Gorbachev, I call him a man who carrys a Burma Map on his head! Now he is not carrying only the Burma Map but also The Christ Map in a special place, in his heart. As Burma Nation has different States ie...Shan State, Kachin States..etc. Let me see how many states we have in Christ's Nation. I would like to say we have Ten States. They are call,

1. Thou shalt love your God with all your heart State
2. Thou shalt not idolitary State
3. Thou shalt not use God name in vain State
4. Thou shalt keep the Sunday as a worshipday to our God State
5. Thou shalt honor your father and mother State
6. Thou shalt not kill State
7. Thou shalt not commit a dultery State
8. Thou shalt not steal State
9. Thou shalt not bear false witness State
10. Thou shalt not covet they neighbours's goods State

To live in Christ's Nation, you No need a visa at all. It's open to you all. In there we speak the same one language. The language is call "Have Faith In God".

Folk, Take it or leave it all up to you. Remember that no one can't force you to live in Chirst's Natin. A true Christian believe in Praying not Forcing.

Please note: In Christ's States there is NO "Thou sahlt convert others state" at all!!!

Mikhail Gorbachev admits he is a Christian

Mikhail Gorbachev during his visit to the Basilica of St Francis in Assisi
Mikhail Gorbachev, the last Communist leader of the Soviet Union, has acknowledged his Christian faith for the first time, paying a surprise visit to pray at the tomb of St Francis of Assisi.

Accompanied by his daughter Irina, Mr Gorbachev spent half an hour on his knees in silent prayer at the tomb.
His arrival in Assisi was described as "spiritual perestroika" by La Stampa, the Italian newspaper.
"St Francis is, for me, the alter Christus, the other Christ," said Mr Gorbachev. "His story fascinates me and has played a fundamental role in my life," he added.

Mr Gorbachev's surprise visit confirmed decades of rumours that, although he was forced to publicly pronounce himself an atheist, he was in fact a Christian, and casts a meeting with Pope John Paul II in 1989 in a new light. Mr Gorbachev, 77, was baptised into the Russian Orthodox Church and his parents were Christians. In addition, the parents of his wife Raisa were deeply religious and were killed during the Second World War for having religious icons in their home.
Ronald Reagan, the former United States president, allegedly told his close aides on a number of occasions that he felt his opponent during the Cold War was a "closet believer".

Mr Reagan held deep religious convictions himself. However, until now Mr Gorbachev has allowed himself to express only pantheistic views, saying in one interview "nature is my god".
After his prayers, Mr Gorbachev toured the Basilica of St Francis and asked in particular to be shown an icon of St Francis portraying his "dream at Spoleto".

St Francis, who lived in the 12th century, was a troubadour and a poet before the spiritual vision caused him to return to Assisi and contemplate a religious life.
Even in his early days, St Francis helped the poor, once giving all of his money to a beggar. As well as spending time in the wilderness, he also nursed lepers and eventually became a priest.
"It was through St Francis that I arrived at the Church, so it was important that I came to visit his tomb," said Mr Gorbachev.
"I feel very emotional to be here at such an important place not only for the Catholic faith, but for all humanity."

He also asked the monks for theological books to help him understand St Francis's life.
Father Miroslavo Anuskevic, who accompanied the former Soviet leader, said: "He was not recognised by any of the worshippers in the church, and silently meditated at the tomb for a while. He seemed a man deeply inspired by charity, and told me that he was involved in a project to help children with cancer.
"He talked a lot about Russia and said that even though the transition to democracy had been very important
for the world, it was very painful for Russia. He said it was a country which has a great history, and also a great spirituality."

Not that it matters whether Mikhail Gorbachev is a Pantheist or a Christian, since Pantheism does not rely on numbers or notoriety of participants to assure its validity as many Christianity seems to do, it should be noted that St. Francis is the most Pantheistic of the Catholic saints. And Pantheists and Humanists equate with many of his practices.

Thanks for your comment! I really do not understand what you want to say. But to my understand, it is a huge different between Pantheist and Christian.

To be sure before I say something, I called up my Catholic friend and this is what I understand beside I read about Saint Francis myself.

I should say St. Francis is not Pantheist. Would like to share one of his prayer...

Lord make me an instrument of your peace,
Where there is hatred let me sow love.
Where there is injury, pardon.
Where there is doubt, faith.
Where there is despair, hope.
Where there is darkness, light.
And where there is sadness, joy.
O divine master grant that I may
not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
To be loved as to love
For it is in giving that we receive-
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned.
And it's in dying that we are born to eternal life.
