Christianity Grows In Russia & Declines In Zionist West

~ ✟ Veritas ✟ Vincit ✟ Omnia ✟ ~ “In the West, churches are closing down… Here, it’s the other way around.” “…with the country’s most senior figures leading by example, it’s clear the Christian tradition now outweighs the Communist one. ” A total of 23000 Orthodox churches have been rebuilt in Russia in the past 20 years, Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia has said. “Nothing of the kind has happened in any country at any time in history,” the leader of Russia’s Orthodox Christians said. Churches all across Russia were destroyed during the Soviet era, while many others were turned into museums of atheism or used as warehouses. “This has been happening against the backdrop of all social, political and economic confrontations… The world should see the Orthodox Russia’s great feat of rebuilding all that was destroyed,” he said. The patriarch recalled that by 1991 Russia had only 7000 operating churches and 22 monasteries. Today the country has over 30000 churches and some 1000 monasteries. Patriarch Kirill was elected Russia’s church leader on February 1, 2009. He replaced Patriarch Alexy II, who died in December 2008 at the age of 79. Alexy led a revival of faith in Russia following the collapse of the Soviet system. ‪ -from RT’s “Faith Cure:Christ reborn in post-Soviet Russia” January 7, 2011. ‬ Russian Faith ‪ Russians Defend Christianity / защиту веры ‪ ‬ Russia’s Orthodox Church Today ‪ ‬ Vladimir

Let’s Reduce Your Expectations for Christianity

When we become a Christian, the Bible uses language that says we’re adopted by God the Father . . . into his family. And what do we know about being part of a family? They annoy us, we annoy them, and we love and serve each other. That’s family. That’s fellowship. Welcome to the church. This clip is excerpted from the sermon “Jesus Gave Us Communion,” part 7 of our current sermon series, Jesus Loves His Church. It was preached by Pastor Mark Driscoll at Mars Hill Downtown Bellevue and released online on August 5. Watch the full sermon here:

Should christians JUDGE????…YES!!!

I prove this through biblical scriptures. Per One of the most misused verses in all of the bible is Matthew 7:1, about judging not, lest you be judged. - So many people will quote it and say it to confront people about their salvation and sin in their life. Is it biblical for Christians to pronounce judgment? Is our cultures present understanding of Matthew 7 truly biblical? Tim Conway answers an Ask Pastor Tim question and responds with the scriptures

Abba Seraphim: Alter Orbis: British Christianity & the Roman Imperium Abba Seraphim was among a number of distinguished speakers at a day conference entitled, “Britain and the Early Church. Exploring the origins of British Christianity”, presented under the auspices of the Fellowship of Saint Alban & St. Sergius. The lectures were held at St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church in Southampton in 14 July. A number of Orthodox jurisdictions were represented: Father Chrysostom MacDonnell (Antiochian Orthodox Deanery) spoke on “After the Romans Left”, tracing the cultural and religious growth of the Insular Church; Father John Nankivell (Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Thyateira) led a discussion exposing the ‘myth’ of Celtic Christianity whilst Father Andrew Phillips (Russian Orthodox Church outside of Russia) gave an extensive historical overview in “The Saints of the Isles and the Isles of the Saints.” Academic contributions were made by Professor Paul Cavill of the University of Nottingham, who spoke on the “Veneration of the Cross in England” from its Constantinian origins; whilst Professor Michelle Brown of the University of London highlighted many exciting discoveries about cross-cultural links from ancient manuscripts. Abba Seraphim concluded with a talk, “Alter Orbis: British Christianity & the Roman Imperium.” In his welcome to those attending, Father Stephen Platt, General Secretary of the Fellowship, commended Angelos Stanway, who had planned and organised the day single-handedly.

Former Pastor John Loftus on Christianity

Luke Muehlhauser: John Loftus: I was a Christian apologist with several master’s degrees set for the express purpose of defending Christianity from intellectual attacks. I was not afraid of any idea, because I was convinced that Christianity was true and could withstand all attacks. I have taught both apologetical and philosophical classes for a few different Christian and secular colleges. I was in the “Who’s Who Among America’s Best Teachers” in 1996. I knew most of the arguments against Christianity, and as a philosophy instructor in a secular college I could debate both sides of most any argument. As a philosophy instructor, in many ways, I am a purveyor of doubt. Too many people have a superficial faith handed down from their parents. As a teacher my goal is to cause them to doubt much of what they believe, be it atheist or believer, or in between. Doing so is what’s needed for them to develop a deeper faith, and it allows them to see points of view they’ve never considered before, thus making them more tolerant of other people’s beliefs. One thing that I must do as a philosophy instructor is to eliminate from my students a smug, simplistic, and dogmatic belief system. Such beliefs are childlike and unbecoming of the adults they should become. Anyway, I have told people time and time again that I could teach philosophy until I was blue in the face so long as I knew I had a loving, caring, and faithful Christian community to fall back on after
