    The progress has been remarkable, most of which has been done with a 1 and half year time span. Now I'm not surprised the construction of Covid-19 hospitals was so rapid, timely and efficient!

    Updated video, with even more stunning portions of the church not shown prior. The additional portions shown make it look better than most Western amusement parks! thumbsup

    It is a work of art. Truely a masterpiece. Only other form of religious work that was able to get the same emotions out of me was Michelangelo's Pieta and Sistine Chapel

    The opposition sites here in Russia doctored the first image and spread it around. Or maybe it was originally done as a joke by someone but then trotted out as the real thing.

    You are really full of shit, python. As if Warhammer did not rip off Byzantine style and aesthetics. Now you accuse the Russians
    of ripping off those that ripped off from it and form other Orthodox sources.

    You also need to put the crack pipe down about Russia's "imperial ambitions". It's your western ideals that are congenitally warped
    with the need for imperial control. Russia's biggest crime is that it refuses to become a colony.

    Don't go too hard on him, his commie empire lasted like 50 years or something, had to be created by betraying their own country and spent entirety of it's existence wanting to be something else

    Main form of entertainment was starvation of course Razz

    And I will remind everyone again that commies pioneered residential buildings with fecal stalactites

    Also I love how he says WH40k like it's supposed to be a bad thing or something

    I dare him to point to one, just one thing that commies built that even remotely approaches awesomeness of this

    In another thread you mentioned you had a twitter account. I looked it up an noticed the communist insignia in the profile pic

    The following are all genuine questions. There is no trolling or time wasting. I just can't comprehended why a seemingly rather intelligent guy would support communist ideals in the year 2021.

    So here it goes. Why are you a communist?

    Also, why do the pictures of a truly beautiful Orthodox church ( agem of a construction that has unfortunately become a thing of the past - read Frank Gehry's work on weaponised uglyness, brutalism, social engineering etc.) trigger you so much?

    Looking forward to your answers,

    All the best.

    Russian Orthodox Church and Christianity - Page 3 Empty Patriarch of Moscow: Do not have abortions, let the children be raised by the Church

    Post  lyle6 Fri May 14, 2021 3:10 pm

    Patriarch Kirill of Moscow called on women, instead of having an abortion, to give their children to the Church.

    In fact, the Patriarch of Moscow stated that in this case, the Church will not hinder the future contact of mothers with their children. The statement was made today during a charity forum of the Russian Church.

    “The Church is constantly referring to a terrible problem – the problem of abortion. We are a big country, we need to be more.

    And there is no more effective way to influence demographics than to radically reduce the number of abortions. This is what the Church is asking for, “said the head of the Russian Church.

    The Patriarch of Moscow also said that the state should take steps to address the issue.

    Best way to prevent abortions is to use rubber, Padre

    It also helps with some other "burning" topics as well...

    It takes way more than harlot to get you to hell

    But not getting yourself in in situations which can be prevented with a piece of rubber will definitely keep you away from it

    Hope they are prepared for women to take them up on their offer.

    It is one thing to make such a statement, but do they have foster parents or the facilities to bring up children like this... and be aware these children might be born HIV positive or have all sorts of potential addictions they will need to be able to deal with.

    Depends if they are in control of the orphanage structure in Russia as is or not.

    This may mean more tax benefits in Russia.

    Major concern is if the Mosques also jump in on this

    Agree, they will be brainwashed into Islamic ideology that seeks to turn Russia into a caliphate, it's like voluntarily sending fresh recruits to ISIS or Al Qaeda, definitely not in Russia's best interests.

    Na

    Russia controls its Islam just like it controls its Christianity

    They'll be brought up good Muslims and loyal to society, no big problem here.

    And everyone saw what ISIS was and how it handled business. Islamic radicalism has gone down around the world after that.

    Prophecies Of St Seraphim Of Vyritsa (1866-1949)

    The Elder said that a time will come (it is already coming!) when the debauchery and moral decline of the young will reach their ultimate point. Virtually no-one will remain uncorrupted. Seeing their impunity, the young will consider that everything is permitted them for the satisfaction of their whims and lusts. They will begin to gather in groups and gangs, stealing and debauching themselves. But a time will come when the voice of God will be heard, when the young will understand that it is not possible to go on living in that way. They will come to the faith in various ways, drawn ever more strongly to the ascetic life. Those who before were sinners and drunkards will fill the churches and greatly thirst for spiritual life. Many of them will become monks. Monasteries will open, churches will be filled with the faithful. Then young people will go on pilgrimages. It will be a glorious time! The repentance of those that sin now will be all the more ardent...

    The storm will pass over the Russian land,
    The Lord will forgive the Russian people their sins.
    And in Divine and Holy beauty the Cross
    Will shine brightly above the Church of God once more.
    And the ringing of bells will awaken
    All our Holy Rus to salvation from the slumber of sin.
    Holy monasteries will open anew,
    And faith in God will unite all.

    The salvation of the world is from Russia. St Petersburg will become the spiritual centre of the country. There will be more great events in Russia - the opening and glorification of holy relics in St Petersburg - a great joy for the whole world...

    The Orient will be baptized in Russia. The whole heavenly world is praying for the enlightenment of the Orient.

    A time will come when there will be a spiritual flowering in Russia. Many churches and monasteries will open, even those of other faiths will come to us in ships to be baptized. But this will not last long - for about fifteen years, then Antichrist will come ...

    The time will come when there will be no persecution, but money and the attractions of this world will draw people away from God and many more souls will perish than during the period of open militant atheism. On the one hand, they will raise up crosses and gild cupolas, but on the other hand, the kingdom of lies and evil will come. The True Church will always be persecuted. Salvation will only be possible through sorrows and illness, persecutions will take on a very refined and unpredictable character. It will be terrible to live to those times.

    A time will come when Russia will be torn apart. First they will split her up, then they will start to plunder her wealth. The West will in every way try to further Russia’s destruction and hand over her eastern part to China. The Far East will fall into the hands of the Japanese. Siberia will fall to the Chinese, who will start to settle in Russia, marry Russians and eventually, through cunning and craft, occupy all Siberia as far as the Urals. When China tries to go further, the West will oppose it.

    Many countries will fall on Russia, but she will survive, though losing a great part of her territory. That war, foretold by the Holy Scriptures, will bring about the unity of mankind. People will understand that it will be impossible to go on, otherwise every living thing will die. They will elect a single government – this will be the antichamber for the reign of Antichrist. Then the persecution of Christians will begin...

    Among the disciples of St Seraphim, there were two eldresses, Pulcheria and Alexandra. Both had the gift of clairvoyance and the same gift of prophecy as their spiritual father. Of the future they said the following:

    Much blood will be shed inside our country during a war with peoples of the Caucasus. A time will come when they will take away the red flags…the rule of the House of Romanov will not come all at once, there will a time of transition. Then Russia will be ungovernable, there will be a power struggle in Russia. At a difficult time for Russia someone who has been miraculously saved from the House of Romanov will come to power...


    This is an interesting prophecy.
    although there is no clairvoyance in Christianity, only prophecy, and the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

    I want to look this person up and read what I can find about him! >>>> Prophecies Of St Seraphim Of Vyritsa (1866-1949)


    He definitely got this part right!

    A time will come when Russia will be torn apart. First they will split her up, then they will start to plunder her wealth. wrote:
