It is a tragedy for Venezuela that when President Maduro was about to leave, Russia persuaded him to cling on. Its people are starving, inflation is rampant, and basic medical supplies do not exist. Hugo Chavez, corruption , oppression and economic ignorance drove this oil rich nation into the ground.
But we can learn from those who still support Maduro, whose evil policies to avoid. They are Vladimir Putin, Communist Cuba, and the source of most of the world’s terrorism, Iran. There are those in the West who backed this evil regime too.
British Labour leader Jeremy Corbin backed Chavez, as did former ‘Greens’ leader Bob Brown in Australia , who encouraged the following of “a different and better way…”
Lets beware these left wing leaders who would lead their gullible young followers down the path to ruin.
It is significant that their policies are based upon atheist communism, the rejection of God’s Commandments and Laws. Many years ago the ancient Jews turned away from their God, and the result was what we see today in Venezuela, and what we are about to see here if Labour gets its way, when quoting from the Bible will bring imprisonment.
Isaiah 3:1-9, New Living Translation
‘The Lord, the LORD of Heaven’s Armies, will take away from Jerusalem and Judah everything they depend on: every bit of bread and every drop of water, all their heroes and soldiers, judges and prophets, fortune-tellers and elders, army officers and high officials, advisers, skilled sorcerers, and astrologers. I will make boys their leaders, and toddlers their rulers. People will oppress each other— man against man, neighbor against neighbor. Young people will insult their elders, and vulgar people will sneer at the honourable. In those days a man will say to his brother, “Since you have a coat, you be our leader! Take charge of this heap of ruins!” But he will reply, “No! I can’t help. I don’t have any extra food or clothes. Don’t put me in charge!” For Jerusalem will stumble, and Judah will fall, because they speak out against the LORD and refuse to obey him. They provoke him to his face. The very look on their faces gives them away. They display their sin like the people of Sodom and don’t even try to hide it. They are doomed! They have brought destruction upon themselves.’
