Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban. While not a popular man with the globalist elite, he is doing the Lord’s work.

When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.

  • Proverbs 29:2

Viktor Orban’s victory is a triumph for illiberal nationalism,” whines the headline in The Economist. “Poland’s Leader Slams Orban Over ‘Dead End’ Stance on Russia,” complains Bloomberg.  “Victory for Hungary’s Orban means a headache for the EU,” notes the BBC.  But the award for biggest Orban temper tantrum goes to CNN which ranted “Victor Orban, Hungary’s authoritarian leader and key Putin ally, calls Zelensky an ‘opponent’ after winning election.” 

I could go on, but these headlines, typical of legacy media’s decade-plus-long assault on Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, give the reader a fair example of the kind of hate Orban faces from news organizations. 

The occasion of the latest media meltdown over Orban was his fourth consecutive election victory on 4/3/2022.

The BBC article summed up the EU’s opinion on his election win thus, “You could almost hear the collective thud of EU hearts sinking on Sunday night as Viktor Orban made his victory speech.”

 Ah, the sound of globalist heads exploding.  Now that’s music to my ears.

Biden Weighs Deploying Thousands of Troops to Eastern Europe and Baltics” is the New York Times headline that just flashed across my phone. 

In the story’s first paragraph we read,

President Biden is considering deploying several thousand U.S. troops, as well as warships and aircraft, to NATO allies in the Baltics and Eastern Europe, an expansion of American military involvement amid mounting fears of a Russian incursion into Ukraine, according to administration officials.

The situation in Ukraine, long-simmering in the background, appears to be coming to a head.  There are a number of issues contributing to the growing tensions between Russia and NATO, the most important of which is the possible inclusion of Ukraine in the NATO alliance.  Russia has made it clear that NATO expansion into Ukraine is unacceptable.  In the words of Russia’s deputy foreign minister Sergey Ryabkov, “It is absolutely mandatory to make sure that Ukraine never ever becomes a member of NATO.” American Secretary of State Antony Blinken and NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg have countered by stating that Russia has no say in the matter of who is allowed into NATO

What are Christians to make of this?  Is Russia right to object to Ukraine joining NATO, or are the Americans right to seek to incorporate Ukraine in the NATO alliance? Are both sides wrong?  Scripturalists, those who believe that the Bible has a systematic monopoly on truth, including truth on foreign policy, seek to answer these questions by appealing to the Word of God, the 66 books of the Bible.  What do they say?
