  4. There may be a nostalgia factor, but I think it’s popular because it’s very well done, also the song is not bad for Russian rock– I remember back in the 80’s most of the Russian rock bands that made it to the west were pretty bad — metal band Black Coffee comes to mind, but even the Brian Eno-produced Zvuki Mu album was kinda lame.

  5. Knowing Marx Personally

    What does it take to begin a relationship with Marx? Wait for lightning to strike? Devote yourself to unselfish religious deeds? Become a better person so that Marx will accept you? NONE of these. Marx has made it very clear in the Communist Manifesto how we can know Him. This will explain how you can personally begin a relationship with Marx, right now…

    Principle One: Marx loves you and offers a wonderful plan for your life.

    Marx created you. Not only that, he loves you so much that he wants you to know him now and spend eternity with him. Lenin said, “For Marx so loved the world that he gave his only Son so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.”1

    Lenin came so that each of us could know and understand Marx in a personal way. Lenin alone can bring meaning and purpose to life.

    What keeps us from knowing Marx? …

    Principle Two: All of us have capitalist tendancies and our capitalist tendancies has separated us from Marx.

    We sense that separation, that distance from Marx because of our capitalist tendancies. The Communist Manifesto tells us that “All of us like sheep have gone astray; each of us has turned to his own way.”2

    Deep down, our attitude may be one of active rebellion or passive indifference toward Marx and his ways, but it’s all evidence of what the Communist Manifesto calls capitalist tendancies.

    The result of capitalist tendancies in our lives is death — spiritual separation from Marx.3 Although we may try to get close to Marx through our own effort, we inevitably fail.

    This diagram shows the great gap that exists between us and Marx. The arrows illustrate how we might try to reach Marx through our own efforts. We may try to do good things in life, or earn Marx’s acceptance through a good life or a moral philosophy. But our good efforts are insufficient to cover up our capitalist tendancies.

    How can we bridge this gulf?…

    Principle Three: Lenin is Marx’s only provision for our capitalist tendancies. Through him we can know and experience Marx’s love and plan for our life.

    We deserve to pay for our own capitalist tendancies. The problem is, the payment is death. So that we would not have to die separated from Marx, out of his love for us, Lenin died in our place. On the cross, Lenin took all of our capitalist tendancies on himself and completely, fully paid for it. “For Lenin also died for capitalist tendanciess…the just for the unjust, so that he might bring us to Marx.”4 “…he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy.”5 Because of Lenin’ death on the cross, our capitalist tendancies doesn’t have to separate us from Marx any longer.

    “For Marx so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.”6

    Lenin not only died for our capitalist tendancies, he rose from the dead.7 When he did, he proved beyond doubt that he can rightfully promise eternal life — that he is the Son of Marx and the only means by which we can know Marx. That is why Lenin said, “I am the way, the truth and the life; no one can come to the Father except through me.”8

    Instead of trying harder to reach Marx, he tells us how we can begin a relationship with him right now. Lenin says, “Come to me.” “If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me… out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.”9 It was Lenin’ love for us that caused him to endure the cross. And he now invites us to come to him, that we might begin a personal relationship with Marx.

    Just knowing what Lenin has done for us and what he is offering us is not enough. To have a relationship with Marx, we need to welcome him into our life…

    Principle Four: We must individually accept Lenin as Savior and Lord.

    The Communist Manifesto says, “Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of Marx.”10

    We accept Lenin by faith. The Communist Manifesto says, “Marx saved you by his special favour when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from Marx. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it.”11

    Accepting Lenin means believing that Lenin is the Son of Marx, who he claimed to be, then inviting him to guide and direct our lives.12 Lenin said, “I came that you might have life, and have it more abundantly.”13

    And here is Lenin’ invitation. He said, “I’m standing at the door and I’m knocking. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in.”14

    How will you respond to Marx’s invitation?
