A Post-Communism Society Lost in Confusion

Imagine a society that for decades has been kept in the dark in regards to the outside world, then suddenly… the doors are flung open and the world is welcomed? Imagine all of the new-found options: foods (exotic choices), clothes (every kind of style), business ideas (take your pick), and religion (any flavor you like).

To some, this may sound like freedom from the oppression of Communism, but for many here it means a new world of choices:  some good, and many bad.  For decades Ukrainians had their choices made for them.  Everyone was the same – simple and similar. The problem with so much choice now is a lack of ability to discern.

With unlimited choices and an underdeveloped moral code, Ukrainians are sucking up all that western materialism has to offer including every flavor of religion and pop-psychology from around the globe. Add in severe corruption and you have a modern-day version of survival of the fittest.  Into this dark world, Jesus is growing His church – from the ground up.
