Putin’s ‘Anti-Evangelism’ Law Revealed
Interview With Archbishop Gabriel
By Brother Nathanael Kapner August 21, 2016 ©
___________________________________

ARCHBISHOP GABRIEL, of full Russian extraction,
was born in 1961 and currently serves as
Bishop of Montreal and Canada with the
Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia (ROCOR).

Upon graduating from Holy Trinity Seminary in New York in 1984, he became an instructor of Russian culture at the Seminary until 1989.

After serving as an assistant to his superiors, he was ordained as a hieromonk and soon consecrated as a bishop in 1996.

Steeped in the history and culture of Russia, Archbishop Gabriel speaks with authority on the religio-political scenario of that nation of which he and his peers call “Holy Russia.”

His “Monarchy Must Come To Russia” reveals a penetrating perspective on world events.
____________________________


Br Nathanael: What’s this anti-evangelism law all about?

Abp Gabriel: It’s not an ‘anti-evangelism’ law, that’s a misnomer. It’s recognized by Russians as a set of “anti-terrorism laws,” officially titled, the “Yarovaya-Ozerov Laws.”

Br Nathanael: Why is the press calling it an “anti-evangelism” law?

Abp Gabriel: Because the Western press has been on a Russophobia track ever since the Washington-enabled coup in Ukraine. It’s just another attempt to pick on Russia as “the evil empire.”

Look, the Yarovaya-Ozerov Laws, which are the surnames of the sponsors of the legislation, primarily deals with internet and cell phone providers requiring storage of data for the purpose of identifying terrorist threats.

A subset of laws addressing ‘proselytizing’ by cults and unregistered religious groups were subjoined to the main body as an added precaution.

Br Nathanael: Added precaution?

Abp Gabriel: Yes. One concern is itinerant imams ‘proselytizing’ a radical brand of Islam, which is gaining an appeal among a segment of Muslim youth.

The other concern is that there is a belief in Russia among politicians and the people that some Protestant groups, including evangelicals, have been allowing their ‘churches’ to be used as covers for CIA operatives and foreign-backed NGO subversive activities. The supplementary laws will hamper these efforts and practices.

Br Nathanael: You mention “Russophobia” by the West with regard to these laws. Can you elaborate?

Abp Gabriel: Russia is a free country where all religions can worship and practice their faith without restraint.

But try “evangelizing” in Israel, you won’t get very far. Why is the Western press silent?

How about another ally of the US, Saudi Arabia? Share Christ with a Saudi Muslim and you’ll lose your head, literally.

Yet in Russia, with a large Muslim population inherited from Imperial Russia’s expansion, there’s a brand new, actually, an enormous mosque right in the center of Moscow. Could that happen in the center of Tel Aviv? I don’t think so.

Br Nathanael: Is the Russian Orthodox Church for or against the Yarovaya-Ozerov Laws?

Abp Gabriel: Neither. That’s because the laws primarily address terrorist threats.

Yet at the same time, and I visit Russia regularly, it needs to be understood what Solzhenitsyn pointed out when many in the West were criticizing Russia for its Soviet cultural-holdovers since 1991.

Br Nathanael: What did Solzhenitsyn say?

Abp Gabriel: “Give us time, we’re just getting off of our knees after 70 years of Bolshevik oppression.”

And this applies to proselytizing by evangelicals in Russia, and sects like Mormons or Jehovah Witnesses going door to door. There have also been attempts by Protestant groups to perform same-sex marriages.

Russians are still vulnerable to these efforts…some of these groups offer presents and money to induce Russians to come to their gatherings…and need time to return to their Orthodox roots.

Br Nathanael: But shouldn’t they be free to choose what religion to be part of?

Abp Gabriel: They are free to choose. But at the same time, as Solzhenitsyn said, “give us time.”

With the onslaught of Protestant so-called evangelism, much of it offering a “feel good” experience, Russians are yet vulnerable to this kind of Western influence.

Look, Russia’s culture was built upon the life of the Orthodox Church, especially before the era of Peter the Great.

Russians had lived in unison based on the teachings, daily cycle of worship, and worldview of the Church - but was disrupted in the 18th Century when Western influence began to creep in.

In some ways the influence was good with regard to Russia’s civil affairs, but had a deleterious effect on its religious consciousness due to the Vatican’s rationalistic worldview, and the rebellious spirit spread by Martin Luther’s Reformation.

Today, President Putin, a pious Orthodox Christian, is encouraging the growth of the Church both to re-invigorate Russia’s historical culture and instill a moral consciousness into society.

Br Nathanael: Do the people like what Putin’s doing?

Abp Gabriel: The majority of Russians support President Putin and view his efforts to regrow the Church as a positive thing.

Isn’t this better than what’s happening in America with its riots, homosexual propaganda which is gaining a foothold in the elementary schools, and now its repulsive transgender advocacy by the government?

And why is it, with Russia growing as a Christian country, it is targeted as an enemy by the US government and picked on for the slightest things? The Russian people constantly perceive a double-standard in operation.

Washington constantly criticizes Russia for “annexing” Crimea—a misnomer, since Crimea voted to “reunite” with Russia—yet brushes off blame for enabling the illegal annexing of Kosovo by Albania which historically and culturally has been part of Orthodox Serbia.

No wonder Russians look at the US government and shake their heads saying, “Before you take the speck out of our eyes, try taking the log out of your own.”

    Wow! What an incredible Interview with Archbishop Gabriel!

    Everytime I talk with the Archbishop I’m overly impressed with his grasp of world events and his deep understanding of the Orthodox Church. Wow!

    What particularly inspires me is Archbishop’s zeal for the Orthodox Church and his desire to see Her piety deepen in Orthodox Christians like myself.

    He constantly reminds me to increase my own devotion to the Church and my need to continue integrating my worldview with that of the Church.

    I am so proud to be a member of the same Church as Archbishop Gabriel—the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia (ROCOR)—and look to him as a guide for my own Orthodox piety. Amen!

  6. Louis August 21, 2016 @ 4:46 pm

    Brother, thank you for addressing my concerns in this matter.

    I have supported Putin for years now, and was somewhat worried by this talk of supposed religious oppression of heterodox Christianity. Now I can see again that Putin is, along with Viktor Orban of Hungary, the greatest political leader currently.

    It has been refreshing and heartening to see Russia growing in its Christian faith once again- especially with the rampant debauchery here in the West.

    Russia is a major world power, and the light of the world; the only nation that fills me with hope of righteousness and normality in this sinful world right now.

    The Lord Yeshua bless you, Brother Nathanael.

    Love and peace from England!

    Thanks so much for this short-but-sweet look inside ROCOR!

    I have been curious about this for quite some time, and now finally feel like I have a grasp on it. I thoroughly approve!

    I only wish this was being promoted more here in the U.S. I might actually start going to church again if it was!

  9. terry shepard August 21, 2016 @ 5:31 pm

    I love Putin.

    I wish America could have a nationalist leader like him to serve our interests and culture.

  10. Gary McAleer August 21, 2016 @ 5:40 pm

    Excellent, Brother Nathanael!

    The luciferians here in America are paving the way, not only for fulfilling the evangelical views of false Bible prophecy insisting that Russia and China will invade the Middle East.

    These unbiblical views were first begun in 1575 by the scheming Jesuit, Francisco Ribera who conceived the “seven year tribulation” by corrupting Daniel 9:27, removing the exact year of Jesus Christ on the Cross and replacing Him with their fabricated “future Antichrist,” thus removing from the Pope from all Protestant condemnation during the Reformation, but also fulfilling I Timothy 6:10…”the love of money.”

    Just so you know, Brother Nathanael, two Jesuit agents have been caught red handed in two humble churches here in Tennessee: my church, LORD of The Sabbath Fellowship, and a close brother’s church in a nearby town.

    Our churches are small, with small budgets, and yet these servants of Satan were sent to sabotage our ministry, sapping our resources and imposing themselves.

    Maybe you have a testimony as well. Keep up the efforts to shine the light of truth on the darkness.

    Gary

  11. Michael O DiSalvo August 21, 2016 @ 5:47 pm

    Hello Brother from the Queen City.

    I must admit I am a bit confused about Solzhenitsyn’s response about “give us time”.

    As a traditional Catholic who rejects the Antichrist “Roman Catholic Church” which supports everything from contraception to sodomy to Mohammedism, it is easy for me to empathize with the brand of Orthodoxy that your represent Brother.

    Indeed, being that I am being forced to choose between homeschooling and sending my children to a school that at least supports the natural law, I have supported even moving to Crimea for some time until I learned that religions other than orthodoxy were being forced out.

    Believing that Catholicism linked back to St Peter is the One True Religion I have a hard time supporting Putin’s persecution of non-orthodox in general but I really don’t have an issue with extirpating satanic sects like mormonism, pro-sodomite Protestantism, and Mohammedism with its sodomy, bestiality, and female genital mutilation.

    I suppose my real question is how hard core is Putin about pushing out other religions in general? Is he more concerned about pushing out sentimental sects or religions that violate the natural law?

    Your insight is appreciated.

    Sincerely,

    Michael DiSalvo

  14. Brother Nathanael August 21, 2016 @ 8:47 pm

    @Michael DeSalvo

    What part of my interview with Archbishop Gabriel did you actually read?

    I don’t recall him saying anywhere in the interview that Putin is pushing out other religions in Russia. Just the opposite:
    +++
    Br Nathanael: You mention “Russophobia” by the West with regard to these laws. Can you elaborate?

    Abp Gabriel: Russia is a free country where all religions can worship and practice their faith without restraint.
    +++
    For 930 years commencing with ‘Kievan Rus,’ Russia was a monarchy turned empire.

    Then for 74 years, Russia was under the one-party rule of the Communist Party, who essentially took over the imperial government apparatus as its own Soviet central government.

    Then in 1991 the USSR collapsed, and the successor state rose as the “democratic” Russian Federation, ruled by pro-Western oligarchs until Putin became president in 2000.

    Altogether, counting the oligarch decade, the Russian Federation has been constitutionally a democratic federal republic for 23 years, since December 12, 1993 when the Constitution of the RF was adopted by national referendum and the Soviet Union was abolished.

    America has been a democratic federal republic for 228 years ever since September 13, 1788 when ratification by 11 of 13 states put the new Constitution of the US into operation, abolishing the old Confederation of States.

    And that is what Solzhenitsyn meant by “Give us time, we’re just getting off of our knees after 70 years of Bolshevik oppression.”

    Russians are pulling themselves up by the bootstraps, still learning how to be a democratic republic, as a people with a solid Russian national identity with a long history of Orthodox Christianity as the foundation stones of Russian civilization. The Orthodox faith is growing among the people.

    Brother Nathanael.

    Your article is spot on. Keep up the good work.

    Best Regards.

  16. Brother Nathanael August 21, 2016 @ 10:59 pm

    @Siegfried

    You ended your comment with: “I’m not that familiar with Russia.”

    OBVIOUSLY, due to all that you wrote before.

    First of all, you say: “Most of the top oligarchs in Russia are Jews, some of them grew close with Putin and are thus “childhood friends” and running all high now (some owe their fortune to Putin)”.

    Please name all of these top oligarchs who are Jews, okay? Where do you get this crap? On stupid, idiotic, ill-informed “white supremacist” sites that haven’t a clue about Russian affairs? NOT a clue.

    Putin is friendly (not “childhood friends” which is absolutely idiotic) with Roman Abramovich but he certainly does not owe his “fortune” to him.

    Putin purged the Jew oligarchs and only those who promised not to oppose him in alliance with the Putin-hating West were allowed to continue operating in Russia.

    See: Putin’s Purge Of the Rothschild Money Changers @
    http://www.realjewnews.com/?p=205

    The Jew-owned media in Russia was NATIONALIZED by Putin and that put an end to their complicity with Jewmerica in trying to subvert and debauch a Christian society just beginning to flower under Putin.

    Then you say: “Many top officials, state corporation administrators, politicians, etc. also happen to be Jews. ”

    Name one. You can’t.

    Then you say: “Jews are once again at the top, and since Putin arrived to power they seem to have just grown stronger.”

    Another bunch of BS. Prove it.

    Actually, I don’t think I am going to continue with this but rather ask my Moderators if they would determine whether or not to DELETE THE LIES you are polluting my site with. (Moderators Take Notice) (My Response Can Remain)

    Brother Nathanael, Peace in Christ Jesus.

    Thanks again for getting the Truth out there about President Putin. He is a Hero for Christ.

    He is going against the dark forces that promote evil and diabolical architects with very horrible plans for the world which prey on the innocent. Putin has hit Grandslam after Grandslam opt of the ballpark in going up against Muslim Obama who hates Catholics and Russian Othodox with a passion.

    The Russians have won the Proxy War in the Middle East against the U.S. and NATO. I believe it’s due to Russia’s devotion to the Christ and The Mother of God. There is no denying it.

    And I believe we are in the Apocalypse with how evil the U.S. has turned and at the same rate on how Russia has turn to the Othodox Church. Its amazing to witness. It shows how God can transform Countries and use them for His Divine plan and how other Countries can reject God with their own freewill.

    Thanks be to God for President Putin trying to the best he can with everything that these evil offspring of Satan are throwing at this great man.

    Great job and great fruit will be arriving soon from you work, Brother!

    @David Dade regarding: http://www.realjewnews.com/?p=1087#comment-1853478

    Isn’t it amazing how evangelical christians, like yourself obviously, have swallowed (willingly) the Jew-press lies about the honorable Dr Bashar al-Assad?

    But no surprise, your ilk champions all the agendas of the ‘chosen’ crucifiers of the Lord Jesus Christ.

    And it’s so easy to list all of those “crimes” that al-Assad has committed, isn’t it?

    But what’s a little bit harder, and I challenge you to do so, is PROVING one single crime that Assad has committed “against his own people” which is nothing less than Jew-inspired bulls##t.

    Tell me dear DD(T), if Assad has committed so many “crimes” against his own people, why then was he elected twice “by his own people” as president of Syria? Hmm. C’mon Mr know-it-all, tell me why, tell me why.

    And don’t you come back with the Jew lie that the elections were rigged. If your eyes, so used to easy assertions bereft of proof, can stand it, take a look at this Article on Syria that’s CHOCK FULL of detailed FACTS:

    http://www.globalresearch.ca/americas-dirty-war-on-syria-bashar-al-assad-and-political-reform/5492661

    Now, let me get on with it. You say you have a Christian conscience? NO, you have a Jew-infected heart.

    Why aren’t you shedding tears for tens of thousands of children that Jewmerica has killed in its wars across the Middle East and Afghanistan?

    Why aren’t you shedding tears for all the Palestinian children who no longer have legs, arms, eyes, due to IsraHells bombings of Gaza?

    Why aren’t you shedding tears for all the Palestinians who’ve had their groves stolen, their wells poisoned, by the colonizing Jews and their Jew abettors who dictate US foreign policy?

    Why aren’t you shedding tears for the 600,000 Iraqi children who died due to Jacob Lew’s (that ‘choosy’ WICKED JEW) sanctions on Iraq?

    Why aren’t you rising up in righteous indignation (you faux ‘christian’ you) against the Jew war-cry: “Assad Must Go” that is the REAL cause of Syrian children’s violent deaths?

    Whatever misdemeanors Assad has committed are nothing compared to the crimes Jewmerica has committed against humanity not only in Syria, but in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and Yemen….and it’s enabling of the countless war crimes of IsraHell.

    But you’re so brainwashed, a disease that attaches to evangelical christians like you, that if the Jews killed your own mother you’d still call them the ‘choosy’ people.

    As for your assertion (sans any proof) that Assad has a “defective gene,” I recommend that you take up a very lucrative career in journalism.

    Write up an Oped on this subject (no proofs are needed) and send it to the Jew York Times (asking for remuneration) and they will not only print it but send you $5 for your brilliant exposure.

    But may I remind you that Dr Bashar al-Assad has a degree in ophthalmology.

    You might want to contact him as well. He, gracious man that he is who protects Orthodox Christians and other denominations in his own country, may be willing to cure you of your unspeakable blindness.

    @Sixtus Maximus

    My very own sentiments.

  22. Ksmit August 22, 2016 @ 2:09 am

    Dear BN and RJN family,

    I have been following the Russian-evangelical topic and I so want to believe the synopsis provided here at this page by Archbishop Gabriel ROCOR and Brother Nate.

    I had been looking online for ministries or even personal blogs or YouTube videos — i.e., from English speaking Russian Protestant Christians. Such first hand testimonials or testimonials from first-hand US Protestant missionaries to Russia would be helpful for balance. So far, I don’t have any links to such sources, but if I come across any I will share them here.

    I have heard that online proselytizing is not allowed. And I am having a difficult time seeing this legislation as non-discriminatory to freedom of conscience, free speech and matters of interpretation of faith.

    I do believe we are witnessing dark days that will only get darker, until Christ comes, and I think there is a human reaction to believe there is always a ‘good guy’ championing righteousness… I’ve been taught to believe that there won’t be any knight in shining armor, but the antichrist.. nor a glorious earthly golden age coming, but one of judgment.

    That said, I’m a long time reader here and while not Orthodox, so much resonates and I appreciate this site very much.

    Peace be with you, In Christ Jesus,
    Kathy

    Putin is beyond smart, look what they’ve done to America & the Middle East, so much blood on their hands.

    @+BN

    I can’t find Siegfried’s remarks on this latest blog, nor earlier. I located Michael DeSalvo’s, but also want to see what Siegfried had posted.

    I recall the short interesting posts by Lowenstein and yours as well as your readers’ excellent responses. Lowenstein’s remarks were always left on the site.

    I have to assume, therefore, that what Siegfried had posted was especially duplicitous and egregious and so it was taken off. I understand.

    Just curious what the guy had to say.

    Finally, if anyone in Russia is ever perusing this site, I hope that they understand that there are some Americans (myself included) very dissatisfied with our nation’s treatment and response to Putin’s 21st century increasingly Orthodox Christian Russia. In other words, not all Americans are buying that mindless, shopworn, propagandist chant: USA, USA, USA!!!

    It’s as if the shirt (metaphor for the world) has been turned completely inside out. Never would I ever have dreamed in my wildest imagination that someday I’d perceive Russia, for the most part, as the good guys — so much so, to the point that I am now.

    “Rootin for Putin!”

  26. Christopher August 22, 2016 @ 10:20 am

    Just don’t give up on the idea of a Christian America, Brother Nat.

    I know how much you admire Russia, but just don’t forget about us. We want our country to be free just as much as Russia does, but our views are being supressed as we are called “nazi sympathizers and anti-Semites”.

    No longer will America be used as a scape-goat for the Jews. Her true destiny lies with Christ. JFK once said “its never to late”

  27. Sheikh August 22, 2016 @ 10:29 am

    Islam does believe in Christ the son of Mary.

    Islam does acknowledge the evil coming from Al Saud.

    Islam and the Orthodox Church have much in common.

    So please do not mix the godless regime of Al Saud and his evil army of mercenaries.

    Al Saud made a devils pact with the birth of the petrodollar.

    Designed to enslave the whole humankind.

    May peace be upon you Brother Nathanael.

  28. Siegfried August 22, 2016 @ 12:51 pm

    Hello Brother Nathanael,

    Thanks again for all the good work you do. Don’t take my post as an intention to undermine your position or your work, im just trying to understand the world. I acknowledge you changed your mind towards Trump once and I feel the figure of Putin is not yet well understood.

    I believe there will be a big resurgence of Christianity, and the movement will need great people like you, who bow to no one but God.

    I’m not that familiar with Russia, but im getting familiar with it quickly. I try to look for facts that are accepted by all sides and discard whatever seems partisan and cant be proven. Im just trying to get a rational and objective picture of Russia and hope you can help me with it, thanks.

    This is a wikipedia list of the top Russian billionaires, from a list of 21, 14 of them are Jews, or married to Jews, or love Jews even more than if they were Jews themselves, or have made their fortune with close Jewish colaboration and partnership, there are also a couple Moslems. When you read about how they got their riches, it often simply stinks.

    It is often hard to know the background of this billionaires, so there may be hidden Jews in the list and there could be someone mistaken for a Jew, but the general picture is pretty clear and if you dig further down the billionaire list you find a similar pattern.

    Considering the millenary tradition Jews have of becoming indistinguishable with their hosts by changing their name, religion and hiding their background, this list looks indeed problematic for Russia, as it is full of Jews and non-christians, and there may even much more below the surface.

    The relations between Jews/Israel and Russia/Putin are at an all times high:

    “Prime Minister Putin recalled that as an official in St. Petersburg in 1991, it was he who signed the official documents giving permission for the first opening of a Jewish school in Russia in more than 70 years.”

    I can find for you a lot more information about the great Jewish/Israel-Putin relations, but that article is explanatory enough, written for Jews by Jews.

    Russia is foretold as the scourge of this latter times world. Many saints and visionaries have prophesied it. Catholic saints and visionaries.

    Have any Orthodox prophesied to this?

  31. Putin & the Press August 22, 2016 @ 3:20 pm

    One noble and telling quality about Russia’s Putin has not been covered here as far as I’ve seen. That telling quality is how Putin is attacked and ridiculed in the Jews’ media.

    The comedy shows mock Putin and make bad jokes about him. Whenever mass media brings up Putin they portray him in a bad light. How many times has big media shown pictures of Putin without his shirt and tried to make Putin look bad just for that?

    The Jews’ media calls good politicians bad and calls bad politicians good.

    The Jews’ media pounces on decent Christians in politics like wolves on a newborn lamb, but praises their evil puppet politicians such as Hillary Rotten Clinton, Wicked Willie, Obama ben Lyin. The media speaks well of politicians pushing fag marriage, race riots, men and women using the same restroom, etc.

    Isaiah 5:20 GNT - You call evil good and call good evil. You turn darkness into light and light into darkness.

    Jesus said it like this -

    Matt 5:11 Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.

    Luke 6:26 “How terrible when everyone says only good things about you, because their ancestors said the same things about the false prophets.”

    When the Jews’ media praises a politician and justifies anything he does, it means that politician is a puppet of the antichristian Jews. When the Jews’ media constantly attacks a politician it generally means he is decent Christian.

    The fact that the Jews’ media shows Putin in such a bad light means Putin must be okay.

    @Siegfried

    None of the Jews you list have any political power in Russia, none.

    All of the Jews you list prospered during Yeltsin’s reign when the Harvard Jew Boys looted Russia’s industries. Putin had nothing to do with their exploitation.

    See: Harvard Jews Loot Russia @ http://www.realjewnews.com/?p=57

    Once Putin got in, he made it clear that all these Jews better not work with the West in causing trouble.

    One Jew did: Mikhail Khodorkovsky, and he ended up in jail. That sent a strong message to the rest of the Jew oligarchs.

    Now I will send a strong message. End of Discussion.

    All good, except for the ‘Holy Russia’ part.

    I’m sure there is some historical context for this descriptive. Regardless, I don’t call anything holy except my Lord Jesus Christ, His Father, & the Spirit He left to help us. Everything else…is just the exact opposite.

  34. Alan August 22, 2016 @ 7:54 pm

    IDK about putting my faith in Putin.

    The fruit of his efforts so far have been commendable but man always disappoints. Satan/sin rots everything. Ride him till he’s tired I guess.

    Putin sure is a breath of fresh air compared to the list of dungheap cutouts running the world.

  35. KathJuliane August 22, 2016 @ 10:49 pm

    Dear Alan,

    Did not Apostle Peter say to us, “Be Holy!”?

    “Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully on the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; as obedient children, not conforming yourselves to the former lusts, as in your ignorance, but as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, because it is written, “Be holy, for I am holy.”

    In and of ourselves, we are not inherently holy. To be holy, means

    1. Belonging to, derived from, or associated with a divine power; sacred.

    2. Regarded with veneration or specified for a religious purpose: a holy book; a holy place.

    3. Living or undertaken with highly moral or spiritual purpose; saintly:

    The ancient cleanliness code (Lev.11-15) instructed Israel how to prepare for worship. Holiness belongs to God, and we, who cannot attain holiness on our own but receive it from Him, are called to live a holy life before Him.

    Christians are called to holiness in every area of their lives. In the Lord’s Prayer, we say, “Hallowed be Thy Name”. It is not that we want God’s name to be made holy by our prayers, but that His name may be made holy in us.

    We become holy in actively acquiring the Holy Spirit of God through spiritual askesis, or “athletics”, of liturgical worship and receiving the Holy Sacraments, prayer and fasting, and good deeds in our constant spiritual warfare against sin, the temptations of the world, and the works of the sarx (flesh).

    Through askesis we gradually purify our hearts to acquire the “fruit of the Holy Spirit” as he spells out in Galatians 5. By ‘the flesh’ in Galatians, Paul does not mean the soma (body). ‘The flesh’ in this context is a general term for evil actions, the depraved will, the earthly mind, the slothful and careless soul–things that are under one’s control, not part of human nature.

    This ‘flesh’ is crucified with Christ (v. 24). It is not human nature which is mortified, but its evil passions and deeds.

    As metaphors, the Apostle Paul likened the disciplined spiritual ascete to being a marathon runner, which takes time and training to build up to. He also likened it to boxing to illustrate another aspect of the Christian spiritual life. “So fight I, not as one that beateth the air” [shadow boxing] and “fight the good fight of faith”.

    As St Seraphim of Sarov said in a most remarkable conversation when he met Nicholas Motovilov who recorded what the holy man said in 1831:

    “However prayer, fasting, vigil and all the other Christian practices may be, they do not constitute the aim of our Christian life. Although it is true that they serve as the indispensable means of reaching this end, the true aim of our Christian life consists of the acquisition of the Holy Spirit of God.

    As for fasts, and vigils, and prayer, and almsgiving, and every good deed done for Christ’s sake, are the only means of acquiring the Holy Spirit of God.

    Mark my words, only good deeds done for Christ’s sake brings us the fruits of the Holy Spirit. All that is not done for Christ’s sake, even though it be good, brings neither reward in the future life nor the grace of God in this life.

    That is why our Lord Jesus Christ said: He who does not gather with Me scatters (Luke 11:23). Not that a good deed can be called anything but gathering, even though a deed is not done for Christ’s sake, it is still considered good. The Scriptures say: In every nation he who fears God and does what is right is acceptable to Him (Acts 10:35).

    As we see from another sacred narrative, the man who does what is right is pleasing to God. We see the Angel of the Lord appeared at the hour of prayer to Cornelius, the God-fearing and righteous centurion, and said: ‘Send to Joppa to Simon the Tanner; there you will find Peter and he will tell you the words of eternal life, whereby you will be saved and all your house.’

    Thus the Lord uses all His divine means to give such a man, in return for his good works, the opportunity not to lose his reward in the future life.

    But to this end, we must begin with a right faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, Who came into the world to save sinners and Who, through our acquiring for ourselves the grace of the Holy Spirit, brings into our hearts the Kingdom of God and opens the way for us to win the blessings of the future life.

    But the acceptability to God of good deeds not done for Christ’s sake is limited to this: the Creator gives the means to make them living (cf. Hebrews. 6:1). It rests with man to make them living or not. That is why the Lord said to the Jews: If you had been blind, you would have had no sin. But now you say ‘We see,’ so your sin remains (John 9:41).

    If a man like Cornelius enjoys the favor of God for his deeds, though not done for Christ’s sake, and then believes in His Son, such deeds will be imputed to him as done for Christ’s sake. But in the opposite event a man has no right to complain, when the good he has done is useless.

    It never is, when it is done for Christ’s sake, since good done for Him not only merits a crown of righteousness in the world to come, but also in this present life fills us with the grace of the Holy Spirit. Moreover, it is said: God does not give the Spirit by measure (John 3:34-35).
    http://www.pravoslavie.ru/english/47866.htm

    You really ought to read the entire conversation. In it there is a surprise which happened that Motovilov witnessed. In fact, the entire Life of St. Seraphim Sarovsky is spiritual gold, which you can read about at the bottom of the above page. To the entire Orthodox world, including American Orthodox, St. Seraphim is a precious and beloved example of fully living the life in Christ.

    Holy Rus or Holy Russia, the Kingdom of Heaven, the eternal czardom of God in the Heaven and on the Earth, is an important religious and philosophical concept which appeared and developed from the 8th to the 21st centuries by people in East Europe and Central Eurasia.

    The meaning of the concept is close or almost the same as the concepts of Holy Israel, or Kingdom of Heaven, or the Kingdom of God, known to the people of Western-European Civilization.

    We Byzantines saw Rhomania, the Christian Roman Empire with the imperial court at Constantinople, as an icon, an image, albeit an imperfect one, of the Kingdom of God, the New Jerusalem to come.

    In Orthodoxy, the Kingdom of God, the New Jerusalem or the heavenly Jerusalem, is what Christ has brought to the world. Christ declared, “Repent, for the Kingdom of God is at hand,” meaning near, ready to take hold of. He did not mean that it would be an earthly kingdom.

    Later Satan tempted Jesus Christ, born in the flesh a scion of the royal house of David, with the promise of the crown, scepter, and trappings of a glorious earthly kingdom of Jerusalem, during Christ’s 40-day fast in the Wilderness, if only Jesus would bow down to him. The Christ refused.

    Later, Jesus Christ was to tell Pontius Pilate, “My kingdom is not of this world.”

    From the OCA website:

    The Gospel is full of Christ’s insistence that the Kingdom of God is given to men by His coming.

    It is a Kingdom not of this world, but of God, a Kingdom of everlasting life in union with God, the Trinity.

    Thus, we define the Kingdom of God as life in and with God. The Orthodox believe that this life is communicated to men in the Church through Christ and the Holy Spirit.

    It is a life where men worship and obey God and do His will by the presence and power of His spirit.

    One saint has even defined the Kingdom of God as life in the Holy Spirit, which is the same definition given by Orthodox to the Christian Church itself.

    What we know in the Church, in the Holy Spirit, of communion with God the Father through Jesus Christ, remains still a mystery.

    The Kingdom is really here, but in symbol and sacrament. At the end of the ages this Kingdom will come with observation, with power and glory, when Christ will be revealed and God will be “all in all.”

    Thus because we Orthodox believe that the Kingdom is already given to those who believe, and that the righteous dead have even a greater access to this Kingdom than we have on earth because of our mixture with the evil of this age, we insist that “heaven” is not a locatable place within the space of our created universe, but a spiritual, divine, condition of existence which will fill the universe at the end of time.

    It is “eternal life” already revealed to the saints in death and to the holy people of God within the sacramental life of the Christian Church.

    Because I am being lazy, I’m making Wiki talk about Holy Rus, particularly since it does quote ROCOR Metropolitan Hilarion of New York:

    This long-standing religious concept developed through the ages in close connection with Orthodox Russian Christianity, which cannot be understood completely without the idea of Holy Rus.

    The idea of Holy Rus can be explained as the idea of Kingdom of Heaven well-known to every Christian around the world, but developed in the realities of society of Central Eurasia under the strong influence of ancient East Slavic Orthodox Christian culture.

    The idea made great impact on the emergence and development of many states and societies in East Europe and Central Eurasia through the centuries:

    The ancient principality of Rus (the Kievan Rus), the Russian principalities in the state structure of Mongol Empire, Empire of the Great Horde, the Russian Czardom and Russian Empire of the 16th to 20th centuries and even on the emergence and development of the Soviet Union which gave birth to the modern Russian, Ukrainian and Belarussian Republics:

    As sons and daughters of the Russian Orthodox Church, we are all citizens of Holy Russia.

    When we speak of Holy Russia, we are not talking about the Russian Federation or any civil society on earth; rather, it is a way of life that has been passed down to us through the centuries by such great saints of the Russian Land as the Holy Great Prince Vladimir and Great Princess Olga, Venerable Sergius of Radonezh, Job of Pochaev, Seraphim of Sarov, and more recently, the countless New Martyrs and Confessors of the 20th century.

    These saints are our ancestors, and we must look to them for instruction on how to bravely confess the Faith, even when facing persecution.

    There is no achievement in simply calling oneself “Russian:” in order to be a genuine Russian, one must first become Orthodox and live a life in the Church, as did our forebears, the founders of Holy Russia!” — Metropolitan Hilarion (Kapral) of New York.

    Wiki used a couple of small excerpts from a remarkable and moving epistle by Metropolitan Hilarion in 2013, on the 1025th Anniversary of the Baptism of Rus, which doesn’t give the fullness of Metropolitan Hilarion’s context for the passage.

    The fuller context as found in his epistle:

    The feast day of the enlightener of the Russian people, the Holy Equal-of-the-Apostles, Great Prince Vladimir (July 15/28), a day dear to the heart of every true son and daughter of the Russian Orthodox Church, draws near.

    The name of St. Vladimir is connected to the greatest event in the history of our homeland – the Baptism of Rus’, as a result of which our people resurrected unto new life. Thanks to St. Vladimir, our ancestors, having thrown off the darkness of paganism and base idolatry, adopted the Light of the Christian Faith, and became an Orthodox Christian nation.

    Once more, by the grace of God, We call upon all of you to gather at the foot of the Memorial Church to the Millennium of the Baptism of Rus’ for the annual St. Vladimir’s Day celebrations.

    This year’s celebration is very special, because we will mark the 1025th anniversary of the Baptism of Rus’ and 75th anniversary of the founding of St. Vladimir Memorial Church [named for the Baptism of Rus’ in Jackson, NJ].

    Many of our clergy and faithful come from various non-Russian backgrounds, and have whole-heartedly embraced the sacred customs and traditions of the Russian Orthodox Church. Let us not fall into the temptation of segregating our Diocese into cultural groups, because as sons and daughters of the Russian Orthodox Church, we are all citizens of Holy Russia.

    When we speak of Holy Russia, we are not talking about the Russian Federation or any civil society on earth; rather, it is a way of life that has been passed down to us through the centuries by such great saints of the Russian Land as the Holy Great Prince Vladimir and Great Princess Olga, Venerable Sergius of Radonezh, Job of Pochaev, Seraphim of Sarov, and more recently, the countless New Martyrs and Confessors of the 20th century.

    These saints are our ancestors, and we must look to them for instruction on how to bravely confess the Faith, even when facing persecution.

    There is no achievement in simply calling oneself “Russian:” in order to be a genuine Russian, one must first become Orthodox and live a life in the Church, as did our forebears, the founders of Holy Russia!

    The Russian Church was the first to send missionaries to America, and today we must continue their salvific work, so that the Light of Christ may continue to shine ever brighter in this great American land.

    The only way that we can become worthy heirs of the Holy Hierarchs Tikhon and Innocent of Moscow, Venerable Herman of Alaska, the Holy Hierarch John of San Francisco, and other American saints, is to return to our roots and draw inspiration from the past.

    Living in the 21st century, we may think that progress only happens when we look forward, consigning the past to irrelevance.

    In the Orthodox Church, this is absolutely and unequivocally false! If we truly wish to spread the Orthodox Faith in America, we must look to our roots and drink of the pure fountain of Sacred Tradition that is Holy Russia.

    Today, America has need not just of Russia, but of “Holy Russia,” [the Kingdom of God] for it is only this Russia that represents true spiritual wealth; we have no need of a “renovationist,” modernized “Orthodoxy,” but of the true, Apostolic Orthodoxy, the Faith of the Fathers: the Orthodoxy lived by the Holy Church for almost two thousand years, and which that great cloud of witnesses, “All the Saints who Shone Forth in the Russian Land,” connects to the ancient Christian martyrs, monastics, hierarchs, and other God-pleasers.

    This pure, unadulterated, incorrupt Orthodoxy is dear to us as the one true and salvific Faith, which guides us to eternal life; and Russia is necessary to us and dear to our hearts as a firm bulwark of the true Faith on earth.”

    YWAM, Salvation Army, the Red Cross are well known CIA/MI6 fronts.

    The Mormons are as well.

    The CIA is dominated by Mormons who believe they are a lost tribe of Jews.

    Any Anglosaxon-Protestant denomination would be expected to have deep ties to Masonry/Zionism.

    I was nominally baptised Catholic, but I do not practise any religion.

    Yet, I, unlike quite a few who post here show an Angst, Anguish, or Revulsion that Russia does not permit unfettered “religious” Intrusion!

    What is the big Deal? I am happy for Russia!!!

    Don’t these Characters have a large enough World to ply their Trade?? How about starting, or restarting in America??? How about in Israhell?? In Rat-rab Saudi Arabia?? Why not? Too difficult??

    This is one Trait of the “religious Mind” that really upsets me, turns me off, and also amuses me: The implacable Fanaticism that lurks just below the Surface. In some Places, of course, it is seething hot!!!

    Leave Russia alone. No one is forcing you.

    Brother Nate,

    Just checking in again.

    Been out of the loop for the past week or so…

    Has Trump made his mandatory trip to Israel yet?

    Also, is it true that on Monday Trump said that he would ban anti-Semites from entering the USA if he is elected President?

    Anti-Semite = Jew-wise.

    Jew-wise = Privy to the anti-Christ.

    So nobody who is pro-Christ would be allowed to enter the USA if Trump is elected?

    So who is the Wall for?

    luk

  42. KathJuliane August 23, 2016 @ 4:20 pm

    Trump said he would ban anti-Semites?

    Yes, he did, saying he was going to institute “extreme vetting”. That perked Jews’ ears right up.

    The Jewish Forward questioned the feasibility of banning anti-Semites, inadvertently admitting how Jews attempted to stop European immigration to the US after WWII:

    Donald Trump Has a Plan To Keep Out Anti-Semites. Does It Make Any Sense?

    (JTA) — How extreme does vetting need to be to keep anti-Semites from entering the United States, and is Donald Trump’s plan worth the effort?

    The Republican nominee’s proposal to apply an ideological test to potential immigrants is based on precedent:

    The United States in the last century instituted a broad ban on communists and their sympathizers, and Jewish groups after World War II sought to extend similar strictures to those who sympathized with Nazis.

    Nonetheless, Jewish civil rights and immigration groups today have questions about the viability of Trump’s proposal and whether it is ethical to institute an ideological litmus test on arrivals from countries with vastly different values and education systems.

    Trump in his Aug. 15 speech noted the precedent.

    “In the Cold War, we had an ideological screening test,” he said. “The time is overdue to develop a new screening test for the threats we face today. I call it extreme vetting. I call it extreme, extreme vetting.”

    Among those excluded, Trump said, would be anti-Semites.

    “As we have seen in France, foreign populations have brought their anti-Semitic attitudes with them,” he said.

    Trump also would extend his ban to those who are intolerant of other minorities, including the LGBTQ community, and to those who would seek to impose Islamic religious law on the United States.

    The Trump campaign did not reply to a JTA request for elaboration on how Trump’s proposal would practically work.

    Melanie Nezer, the vice president of policy for HIAS, the Jewish group leading advocacy for refugees, said current practice excludes immigrants who have actively participated in persecution, including having belonging to a terrorist group.

    Seeking to root out anti-Semitic attitudes would be harder to define, she said.

    “I don’t know what you’re testing for,” Nezer said. “How do you determine if someone is anti-Semitic? What is in someone’s head? Ideas aren’t fixed.”

    The proposal’s vagueness is troubling, said Marc Stern, legal counsel for the American Jewish Committee, and could indulge stereotyping if the practice was based on the assumption that natives of some countries would necessarily be bigoted.

    “While we appreciate the impulse behind the suggestion that anti-Semites be barred from immigrating to the United States, we doubt it is a proposal that would have much practical effect — even if as implemented it does not succumb to dangerous stereotypes about entire groups of people being anti-Semites,” Stern said in an email.

    Those asked if they are anti-Semites are likely to lie, said Shoshana Bryen, the senior director of the Jewish Policy Center, a conservative think tank.

    “If you say, ‘Do you hate Jews, Shia Muslims, Christians?’ they’ll say no,” she said.

    Additionally, Bryen wondered how far the ban is extended.

    “If you say, ‘I’m going to keep out the anti-Semites,’ do you keep out anti-Shia people or anti-Sunni people?” she asked. “You can’t go down that pike.”

    It’s too much to expect immigrants to arrive with an outlook that is fully compatible with American values, said Abby Levine, the director of the Jewish Social Justice Roundtable, an alliance of groups with an agenda that includes immigration advocacy.

    “It’s nonsensical to expect immigrants from very different cultural contexts to arrive preaching gender, racial and religious equality,” Levine said. “New residents can be shaped by their experiences living alongside people who are different from them.”

    Rabbi Jonah Dov Pesner, the director of the Reform movement’s Religious Action Center, said the real threat of anti-Semitism “requires vigilance” but should not be used as a pretext to discriminate.

    “We take issue with efforts to use anti-Semitism as cover for policy proposals that suggest religious tests for immigration, citizenship or public office, as well as those that call into question American values of religious freedom, respect and tolerance,” he said.

    Ken Jacobson, the Anti-Defamation League’s deputy national director, said it made more sense to improve education for tolerance for all Americans as a means of combating bigotry.

    “I’m very big on something old fashioned called civic education,” he said. “I think Americans need more of that when it comes to democracy.”

    Bryen said it was best to let immigrants learn tolerance through the give and take of living in a diverse culture rather than through government-imposed programs.

    “One of the ways [intolerance] goes away is people talk to each other in the public sphere,” she said.

    According to research provided to JTA by The David S. Wyman Institute for Holocaust Studies, laws passed in the 1950s were broader when it came to weeding out communists, extending to those who would “teach or advocate” subversive views and who were likely to engage in activities “prejudicial to the public interest or public safety.”

    The vague language was removed in the 1990 Immigration Act, which restricts bans to members or affiliates of the Communist Party unless they can show they were forced into membership; members of the Nazi Party in Germany; membership or affiliation with terrorist groups, or participation in persecution and genocide.

    The broader bans in place before 1990 allowed immigration officials to dig deeper into an applicant’s past, extending a ban if there was even a questionable tie to communist activities.

    Jewish groups following World War II sought unsuccessfully to extend the broader bans on communist sympathizers to Nazi sympathizers, fearing – as it turned out, with some vindication — that the influx of non-Jewish refugees from war-torn Europe would include anti-Semites.

    Immigration officials administering an ideological test today would have more sophisticated means at their disposal, including access to the vast troves of information on social media.

    Additionally, an immigrant visa could be revoked if the applicant is found after the fact to have lied – a mechanism that has proven useful in deporting former Nazis.

    Rafael Medoff, the director of the Wyman Institute, said the reintroduction of an ideological test should not be counted out, given the postwar experience of American Jewish groups.

    “After World War II, the Anti-Defamation League and American Jewish Congress tried but failed to block legislation to admit East Europeans whom they suspected of being anti-Semitic and fascist-leaning,” he said. “Although it would be difficult today to screen out anti-Semites from among potential immigrants, there is merit in the principle that bigotry is un-American and therefore should be grounds for exclusion.”

    Jacobson of the ADL warned that dipping into what potential immigrants have said in informal settings like social media is “touchy,” especially when applied to refugees who may be facing imminent danger.

    “When one talks of the values immigrants bring in, we can’t bar people, especially if they’re refugees who may be in danger,” he said.

    Thank you BroN!

    This interview has only confirmed my worst fears; that people in the US are buying into the Russian boogeyman lies and propaganda, and are being conditioned into supporting yet another war for Zionist interests.

    It it imperative that we expose the distorting of actual events and spread the truth for all to hear.

    Sometime during the year 1946 I attended a party in New York where many Jews were present. One of the young fellows spoke fluent German and during a conversation he told me that he had spent many months as an internee at the Buchenwald-Belsen concentration camp.

    Immediately I asked him about the Beast of Belsen, Ilse Koch (Lampshades of specially picked human skins, etc., etc.). “Oh, those are just stories,” he said.

    “I know for certain, because for several months I was assigned the duty to be her chamber boy who had to clean her premises. She acted absolutely normal and correctly and was never abusive.

    Only after what happened to her husband, the camp commander, she came close to a nervous breakdown.”

    He had embezzled funds which were part of the money designated to purchase the necessary supplies for the inmates of the camp, was prosecuted of his crime by an SS court, sentenced to die and summarily shot.

    To anybody familiar with the extremely strict rules of conduct for the German armed forces, especially in occupied enemy territory, this story is not very surprising. For example, any German soldier caught raping a woman faced a firing squad shortly thereafter.

    Br Nat,

    In streets across America, you will be in NYC, but where will you speak?

    @Curtis

    Thank you for the fun! I visited the link you have given.

    St Paul told us not to enter in vain discussions about feasts, neomenies, calendars etc…

    The Christians who talked with that rabbi have forgotten St Paul advice and also were apparently not enough instructed in the Christian faith to plead with authority in defense of our Lord and Saviour Jesus-Christ.

    There is ONLY ONE REASON which impedes rabbis to believe in Jesus-Christ: they cannot bear in mind that God is MOST POWERFUL (”col yakhol” in hebrew and “Tout Puissant” in French).

    He has power, that is to say He has the CAPACITY to do EVERYTHING without failure and PERFECTLY! Nothing is impossible to God! All His Creation is the best testimony of it!

    God created all the Creation with His Word so could not He send His Holy Spirit to make a not married young adolescent girl still virgin to have a son without contact with a man? Of course He could! But rabbis do not want to agree with it!

    For rabbis, to admit such a thing implies for themselves not only the loss of their influence, of their authority over their fellow people, but also the loss in their alleged “mission to be the chosen people” which brings “light” to goyim!

    Remember : At Hanukkah they lit candles in a menorah/Hanukkiya in the White House and even in Paris near the Tour Eiffel publicly each yea, while Christmas “crèches” (Nativity scenes in French) and Christmas trees are rejected.

    They say that God created the world not perfectly in order that Israel will make it perfect!

    They are not interested in converting people to Judaism because if they would do that they could not in the future have servants/slaves to serve them while they study in yeshivots learning talmud eight hours a day without working!

    The term “alma” in hebrew signifies: a young adolescent girl/woman/lady which is not married at all (we say in French: Mademoiselle, not Madame which is reserved to married women).

    In litterature books, we read: in Hebrew “Haalma X…” = “Miss X or Y…” in English = Mademoiselle X or Y in French.

    So, the “good reasons” of that rabbi are not good reasons at all!

    Mark Toner isn’t laughing/smirking today.

    It would seem Turkey’s President has come to his senses, due in no small part to the current stature of Russia’s President Vladimir Putin.

    Contrast Russia’s honorable actions with that of Amerika’s Zion agenda?

  48. The English Man August 24, 2016 @ 9:11 am

    @All

    To many of us Brother Nathanael is almost like a living saint.

    There are many sinners out there.

    I would ask you All, is it prudent that we ask to meet personably Jesus Christ’s most exceptional servant?

  49. Brother Nathanael August 24, 2016 @ 11:50 am

    Thanks so much, Bro. Nathanael.

    I completely support your efforts to control the enemies of Christianity.

    I wish my own Catholic Church would do something similar.

    Russia Insider:

    Russia Shows How It’s Done: 6 Jihadis Killed, 3 Arrested in 2 Weeks in Moscow, St. Pete

    Compare and contrast Europe vs. Russia’s response to the problem of radical Islam.

    Two recent events in Russia highlight the global scale of the Islamic problem.

    North Caucasus Muslim terrorists were arrested in St. Petersburg and 2 more shot dead by police in an ISIS inspired attack that occurred near Moscow.

    The Russian FSB followed up last Sunday and arrested more Muslim terrorists in Moscow. From Sputnik:

    “During the interrogation of two detainees it soon became known that they planned to carry out a terrorist attack on public transport in Moscow. Bandit underground provided them with money and gave them improvised explosive devices to organize and carry out a terror attack.”

    They were mostly Chechens and some Syrians, according to Sputnik.

    Islamic terrorism is something that Russia has had to face for decades now, and it seems that the Russian government knows how to handle the problem.

    The Russian response to the encroachment of Wahabi Islamic terrorism has been to conduct aggressive anti-terror operations against radicals planning terror attacks. Such as the operation that occurred in Dagestan last week.

    Concurrently, the Russian state has also always opted to prop up more moderate Islamic governments in hot spot areas like Chechnya.

    Wherever you have a fault-line between Islam and another civilization you have conflict, but Russia has historically proven to be very adept at handling its Muslim population.

    Kremlin loyalists like Ramzan Kadyrov serve as Russia’s shield against foreign-sponsored Wahabi terror by keeping a watchful eye on their own territory.

    In exchange for guaranteeing peace, they get support from the Kremlin. It is an effective bargain.

    The Russian Federation however has inherited its Muslim population through centuries of conquest and imperial rule.

    The situation in Europe is markedly different. The Muslim population there has been imported directly from many hot spots of terror from around the world. Furthermore, these are primarily Sunni immigrants, who the West has little experience dealing with beyond a few bombing campaigns in the desert.

    The plight of the new “refugees” has been elevated to the cause de jour for Europe’s liberal intelligentsia.

    They are beyond reproach, and their many crimes against the native European populace covered up. But in Russia, this is not the case. The problem is dealt with, swiftly and harshly.

    Russia has been dealing with the problem of radical Islam for decades now, and seems to have developed a strategy for it.

    We will see if the countries in the West who yearly import hundreds of thousands of non-assimilated Islamic peoples into their countries prove themselves to be capable of dealing with things as well as the Russians.

    If the events of Nice, or St. Dennis are any indication, Europe faces a steep learning curve. From Voltairenet:

    According to the Belgian Social-Christian MP, Georges Dallemagne (the former doctor close to the French Minister of Defence), soldiers on duty in front of the Bataclan at Paris, at the time of the Isis attacks on 13 November 2015, did not intervene.

    Interviewed by RTL Belgique, the politician declared: “We know that the police did not intervene even though they were at the scene.

    “We know that the Sentinelle Force, that had six armed soldiers in front of the Bataclan did not intervene when the carnage occurred at the Bataclan… they considered that they were under no duty to intervene, because no such duty was laid down in their rules of engagement.

    “Their rules provided that they could only protect themselves. It is completely incredible, mind-blowing”.

    But in Russia at least, there is no such squeamish reaction to laying down Russian law.

    In the long run, this may end up saving Russia, as Europe founders.

    Great informative interview, however I’m a little worried about the archbishop’s - and Putin’s - tendency to as-I-see-it “stick to the party line” which is (and I can hardly see this as innocent or unintentional) not in accordance with reality.

    Specifically the characterization of Protestantism as “the rebellious spirit spread by Martin Luther’s Reformation” is preposterous: the Catholic leadership itself had become rebellious against God and was engaged in all kinds of self-serving criminality. They had been taken over by the usual suspects and, among other things, were running a protection racket based on their supposed inside track with God! In any case the advent of J. S. Bach was certainly not the result of some silly spiritual rebellion.

    It worries me that there are so few public personages (like yourself) who are willing to make it clear to everyone - that the Main Lie, the basis of the false belief system prevalent here and spreading worldwide, is the Holocaust. It is a selfish lie used to defame and extort, nothing more.

    While I can understand Putin’s need in theses circumstances to play every card he’s got, as regards that one thing I wish he would stop it. Same Orban.

    I have tried to improve the above, but it doesn’t improve much by softening. I would be grateful to hear any response and if there is some reason that you must tow the party line too?! If you prefer to call here is the number 646-710-0869.

    Best Wishes, and wish could have known sooner and Been There when you came to NY.

    Next Time, I hope.

    God Bless

    Since 2011, Western leaders have been determined to turn Syria into a failed state. 

    They have gone to the extent of providing funding, training and weaponry to foreign mercenaries who have waged a brutal campaign of terror on the Syrian people and their legitimate government.2

    Brother Nathaniel:

    Thank you for printing the interview with His Grace Archbishop Gabriel.

    I share his views.

    Among the greatest threats to Christian countries and societies and indeed to world peace are modernism and secular humanism, Islamic militancy and the negative effects sects and cults that claim to be true Christians years after Our Lord and Saviour.

    More on Maurice Strong,

    Maurice Strong took a $1 million bribe discused in the UNs oil for food scandal.

    He fled to China and then to Switzerland. There was a warrant out for his arrest at one time.

    He once swindled electrictity users in Ontario, Canada, by getting Ontario Hydro rate payers to pay for a “Peace University” in Costa Rica.This didn’t even generate a scandal in Canada’s controlled press. His wife owns a nut bar cult center in Colorado.

    Recently it was announced that Strong died, and maybe its true, but nowhere is there any mention of how he died or where he died. Its a very, very strange end for such a public figure. Was he murdered? Did he commit suicide?

    Maybe a google whiz kid like KathJuliane could find out what happened to Maurice Strong.

    Maybe he just underwent plastic surgery and is still hanging a round like a dirty shirt? A very strange man with a very strange end.
