What is going on in Russia: Changes in the Constitution – or worship?
If you are familiar with the third chapter of the book of Daniel in the Bible, you know what “the golden image” is all about.

Radio Echo Moscow did let the political commentator and author Stanislav Belkovsky demonstrate a certain ambivalence in the face of the referendum about changes in the Russian Constitution, culminating yesterday.
Thus, he performed in two different roles, both as Stanislav A and as only Stanislav, and he eventually came up with something useful, since the discussion involved three major issues that the changes entail:

  • the “zero-ing” of Putin’s terms of office, so that he could theoretically remain in power until 2036,
  • – the introduction of the word “God” into the Constitution and
  • – – the emphasis on marriage as a union between Man and Woman.

Both Stanislav A and Stanislav were skeptical towards – and sometimes very critical towards – Putin. But Stanislav A believed in any case that one should go and vote for the changes, because after all and after all, Putin is a “president of freedom”, which is a guarantee for freedom of speech, yes “..the people are the only Source of power in Russia!


But Stanislav said that one should go and vote against the proposed amendments to the Constitution.
Why?
Well: “Vladimir Putin doesn’t recognize the Source of power in our country as anything stemming from the People, but from himself “

If so , he is indeed echoing the mentality of the babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar: “ Is not this great Babylon, that I have built for the house of the kingdom by the might of my power, and for the honour of my majesty?” (Book of Daniel 4:30)

If not anything even worse …
