A Romanian Christian told me of a communist government restriction on baptisms. One restraint was that proselytizing – baptizing someone from a non-church family – was forbidden.

Another required the names of all who were to be baptized several weeks before the baptism, thus allowing time for the Party to try to dissuade each person from being baptized. Baptizing children or young people were also forbidden.

My immediate question was, “What do you do!?

A sinner and a Christian go into the mountains, and two Christians return!” was the reply.
