In his latest commentary, LCG’s Wyatt Ciesielka writes:

On April 5, 1902, Stalin was arrested for the first time and exiled to Siberia.  He soon escaped to return to revolutionary politics.  He would be arrested six times, escaping almost every time.  He became very active with the radical Bolsheviks, and by April 11, 1917, he was elected to their main committee.  On April 3, 1922, Stalin would be elected General Secretary of the Communist Party, effectively beginning his reign over the Soviet Union.  Historians recount Stalin’s reign as one of cruelty, privation, lies and terror.  He would rule until his death in 1953.

When Solzhenitsyn referred to Stalin as “the plowman,” he conveyed the extreme detachment from reality between the image Stalin intended to portray, and the reality that he had brought to his country.

Historians estimate more than 50,000,000 deaths, under Stalin’s regime.  Countless historians and eyewitnesses tell of systematic arrests, beatings, property confiscation, ethnic cleansing, deportation of entire nationalities, and illegal executions.  Even a major Soviet-era magazine (Argumenti i Fakti) published a detailed accounting of Stalin’s atrocities, “indicating that about 20 million died in labor camps, forced collectivization, famine and executions” (The New York Times, February 4, 1989).  In 1956, Stalin’s successor – Nikita Khrushchev – delivered a very critical speech to the 20th Party Congress largely condemning Stalin’s reign of terror and the “personality cult” he fostered.

Recently, Russian president, Dmitry Medvedev, sternly warned those who would attempt to “rehabilitate” the image of Joseph Stalin, saying “it was impossible to imagine the scale of repression under Stalin when whole groups of people were eliminated and even stripped of their right to be buried” (, “Medvedev blasts Stalin defenders,” October 30, 2009).

Stalin claimed to be creating a communist utopia, but it was a lie.  Instead, the plowman created a reign of terror.  And the “facts” that he presented to the world to support his lie were only those facts that supported his selfish ambitions.

But, the truth is that a real utopia is coming, when a noble and all-powerful King of kings will return to establish His perfect government on this earth (Revelation 11:15).  His righteous, resurrected saints will then rule with Him (Daniel 7:27)!  Read more

Stalin was a mass murderer.  And while he may have felt he had good intentions, true peace will only come about after Jesus Christ returns and establishes His millennial Kingdom.
