Have you heard about Ivan the Terrible? He was a delightful Russian king.

Did you know that he secretly worshipped Cronus aka Saturn – the god who ate his own children?

Ivan shows us clearly that you become like the god you follow.

Ivan tortured and murdered thousands of his own people. His life was drenched in innocent blood.

Can you imagine what would have happened if Ivan had followed Jesus instead of Cronus?
