Thanks for standing up for the truth of Christ!!!!
In the former communist realm, it was hard to escape the threats and seductions of the communist state. For example, the Lutheran churches in East Germany were full of pastors who were Stasi agents and informers. But some of these agents helped make the 1989 revolution against communism!
How much more so with the Orthodox Church! The Orthodox Church is the true Church of the Apostles and Saints, glorified with prophetic saints, thousands of martyrs, true miracles, and saints who die leaving incorrupt bodies—in EVERY generation!!!! Many Orthodox laity experience God directly every week in Divine Liturgy and in the Orthodox Mysteries (Sacraments).
Christ has promised that the gates of hell shall not prevail over the Holy Orthodox Church!!!!
The renewal and revival of the Holy Orthodox Church in once officially atheist Russia stands as one of the great miracles of our age. A few bishops who were KGB agents change NOTHING of any substance!!!! Nor does the history of Stalin’s involvement—quite the opposite, really!
As for Vladimir Putin, see, for example,
Now let’s look at our beloved, bur fallen America. We have leaders who favor the Sodomites at every turn, even establishing same-sex “marriage” and doing everything possible to censor, silence, and criminalize Christians who speak or act against this. The same leaders favor violent islam over Christians as well.
Even when a mentally-ill individual wants to extract “meaning” for his sorry life by perpetrating a mass school shooting, he targets Christians!!!! Why is this? Is it open season on Christians? Or did Satan tell him to target us?
Then all the pundits pile onto the story, blaming “guns” (in a gun-free zone) and “white male violence” (when the perpetrator was black). Not ONE of them mentions that the perpetrator targeted Christians!!!!
They leave it up to the Russian Orthodox Church to do that for them!!!!
Then the other class of “usual subjects” say that the Russian Orthodox Church is a “KGB plot” anyway, so anything they say is nothing but “propaganda”!!!
These “usual subjects” are inadvertently supporting the lies and machinations of Hillary clinton and obama, who are laughing at them with total contempt!!!!
It’s time to WAKE UP!!!!
