Moscow, April 16, Interfax Humanity deserves the new Flood, but Russia is called to be the Noahs Ark, head of the Department for Church and Society Relations Archpriest Vsevolod Chaplin believes.
If suddenly something like the Flood happens, it will be justified. If the Lord with human hands punishes big cities it will even more justified. But we still believe and hope that time for repentance will be prolonged and an example of spiritual resurrection and renovation of the whole nation will be shown in the history before the end of times, and thus sin will be condemned and people will be shown the way to another holy life, the priest writes in his article published in Rus Derzhavnaya paper.
He believes that today Russian people has such a possibility.
It is not a reason for arrogance or swagger, triumphalism or praising ourselves. It is a reason for serious work. Lets remind what the Holy Scripture says: The kingdom of heaven has suffered violence, and the violent take it by force, the author writes.
According to him, today Russia will have to spare no effort in order not to betray its supreme calling, its true mission, against which others will certainly fight, if we bear it the way God commanded us.
But without it we will be always unhappy. Fulfilling it, affirming Gods Truth in every field of life from economics to culture, we will remain faithful to that first love of our people to Christ, which made it live a true life, trying to stick to the way leading from Gethsemane, unfair trial, and Golgotha to the light of Resurrection, Father Vsevolod writes.
The ROC is an arm of the Kremlin and run by FSB agents, such as the patriarch himself, a known “fomer” KGB agent. What these guys say should be listened to from a strategic perspective. What they say might reveal hints of what Russia is planning.
Russia is the only world power which is in any way interested in the welfare of Christians.
You are unaware of the prevalence of the occult in Russian society, even to the highest levels. Guys like Aleksandr Dugin, who have links to Putin and appear on state run television, have also advocated Aleister Crowley as well as bizzare and nazi like racial theories. High level politicians in Russia think it important to educate young Russians that they are the true heirs of the Aryan tribe. Young conscripts in the Russian army are raped by their officers as part of their hazing, and this is protected by the regime. Innocent people who resist the Kremlin are routinely murdered. Meanwhile, the ROC is totally under the control of informants and confirmed members of one of the most murderous and deceptive organizations in history, and the soviet structure they were a part of has yet to be dismantled.
The reason you think its not 1968 is because you don’t know anything about Russia.
Highest rate of abortion in Europe. Some Christians those thugs are.
"The reason you think its not 1968 is because you dont know anything about Russia."
I think some people must have set stoned and drooling watching Red Dawn about a hundred times too many between Futurama marathons.
I know this much about Russia, they're not the ones feeding, training, and arming, the Satanic Mooze Lame Scum, who are butchering Christians in Syria for their Moon God. The US government is.
Let me know when that situation is reversed and I'll reconsider my view on whether it's the US or Russia that's in more need of a "Come to Jesus" moment.
Everything I said is absolutely accurate. Just because a clown dances at it doesn't change anything. I know this much about Russia,
IOW, you know that Russia us supporting their allies in Syria, but you forget that they are supporting their other allie's nuclear program in Iran.
Thanks for the info. Very interesting.
Russia isn't perfect. Nobody is claiming it is. One doesn't make the transition from an officially atheistic communist monolith to a cultured, religious civilization overnight. However, Russia is indeed moving in that direction but it will take time. In life, the most important thing is not so much where one is at any given time but rather the overall direction in which one is moving. That's true for countries and it's also true for each one of us as individuals. In which direction are we heading? Russia is moving out of darkness and into the light.
This country, on the other hand, is moving in exactly the opposite direction. A profound darkness envelops this country with every passing day.
Russia is historically a centuries old Christian civilization which plunged into a 75 year nightmare of state atheism. It is now emerging from that disaster and attempting to rediscover its past. There are certainly scars visible and there will be for some time but its transition from the world's largest persecutor of organized religion to its main international defender, at least as far as Christianity is concerned, is quite remarkable.
There is of course, a very clear lesson for the US and western Europe in Russia's 20th century fall into the atheistic abyss.
Your assertion is based only on your gullible acceptance of Russian active measures aimed at conservatives in this country. There is no evidence for any of your vain, suicidal hopes.
America's current decadence and rapidly approaching demise is being perpetrated by Americans.
When America finally implodes it will be evident to all that we did this to ourselves.
With much help from the useful idiots who celebrate their own executioners.
Before civilizations, empires, nations are conquered from without, they first rot from within.
Conservatives used to know that.
Conservatives know this, but, at the same time, they do not embrace perverse totalitarian regimes who hate us. The Kremlin dogs, therefore, are not conservative. They are a cancer.
Freedom from constant propaganda about "diversity". Freedom from the indoctrination of our children about homosexual "rights". Freedom from the celebration of homosexual "marriage". Respect for the conscience of Christians. Religious holidays. Free enterprise. Low tax rates.
Remind me again what the downside is?
You’ll be living under a totalitarian regime that practices all those vices anyway, and which will kill millions of us in that conquest, establishing a regime even worse than the Nazis.
Christianity will continue its resurgence in Russia and I also fully expect it to effect the eventual demise of communism in China. I see these two countries as giving glory to God through their Christian renaissance and being future bulwarks against barbaric Islam as well as sending out missionaries to re-evangelize the secular, decimated west.
