The title of a book about the suppression of dissidents in the Soviet Union. The Coldest Swim refers to a particular dissident who was thrown out of a helicopter into the Arctic Ocean, hence the "cold swim" (Resulting in the target dying of hypothermia and/or drowning). The book was written by Alexandr Lebed in 1992 after the collapse of the Soviet Union a few years prior. The book was a mild commercial success.Not to be confused with Secular Christians, Non-Messianic Christians see Jesus as one of many spiritual teachers in the Judeo-Christian tradition, on a par with, but not above Moses, John the Baptist, St Augustine, Thomas Aquinas, and St Francis of Assisi. For them there is no second coming, and they do not believe that it will be Jesus who judges the quick and the dead, but rather that no one will need a judge, as each person could be damned or saved based on their own merits.
