In 1945, the Wurmbrands’ lives changed drastically when both attended the Congress of Cults organized by the Romanian Communist government. Many religious leaders came forward to praise Communism and to swear loyalty to the new regime.
Sabina said, “Richard, stand up and wash away this shame from the face of Christ.” Richard warned, “If I do so, you’ll lose your husband.”
“I don’t wish to have a coward as a husband,” she replied.
Thus Richard declared to the 4,000 delegates, whose speeches were broadcast to the whole nation, that their duty is to glorify God and Christ alone. (See full story here.)
Pastor Richard Wurmbrand was a vessel chosen by Christ to open the eyes of us modern Christians to the pain and suffering which believers are presently undergoing in the world. For this, we thank you Lord.
So, today, I’m fasting and praying for this great ministry in the hope it will continue to be a voice of the prisoners to us.
