    Hello Father, The Bella Dodd story seems to strongly suggest that we can thank Joe Stalin (a pawn for Satan) for the problems that we have been experiencing in the church for especially the last 50 +/- years. I haven’t read this book; but, there is a video of an interview with Paul Kengor in You Tube. There is also a video of her account in front of a (I think) a House committee back around 1950. And there are numerous articles about Stalin’s goal on the internet.
