A Declaration on the “Russian World” Teaching

An important statement by Orthodox theologians from around the world, appropriately published on the Sunday of the Triumph of Orthodoxy!

“The Russian invasion of Ukraine on February 24, 2022, is a historic threat to a people of Orthodox Christian tradition. More troubling still for Orthodox believers, the senior hierarchy of the Russian Orthodox Church has refused to acknowledge this invasion, issuing instead vague statements about the necessity for peace in light of ‘events’ and ‘hostilities’ in Ukraine, while emphasizing the fraternal nature of the Ukrainian and Russian peoples as part of ‘Holy Rus’,” blaming the hostilities on the evil ‘West’, and even directing their communities to pray in ways that actively encourage hostility.”

    Do you think that Vladimir Putin is demonic Ally possessed?

      Given that I do not know the man, I cannot offer an opinion. But like so many other dictators and tyrants before him, he has given himself over to evil. We must pray for his conversion and deliverance.

    Gee, I don’t know. I only read the first paragraph of the statement and found myself nodding my head in agreement with the Russian patriarchy. We in the West are in the middle of a moral panic over Ukraine. Meanwhile, US imperialism carries on without a peep from the press.

      Well Gee are you serious? If this is a joke it is in very poor taste. If not, than you must be aware of the fact that it sure ain’t the “Western Imperialists” who are killing hundreds of innocent civilians each day in this senseless war.

      Father, thank you so much for posting this declaration!
