Russian Government had stated that, they are protecting the Orthodox in Syria.
thus, I say to them, first of all, you have to be an Orthodoxy in faith, in order to play a role in the church, then when you get Orthodoxy, you will understand that, Orthodox do not needs protection from blind leaders, while the Orthodox Provide the Protection to their people, because Orthodox church derives its strength from the heaven direct and through the saints.
and responding to the article had been published by "The Moscow Times" on Feb 9th- 2012, regarding to the meeting has been done between Putin and the religious leaders in Russia
"Putin Calls For More Religion on TV"
I would address two elements in this meeting:
the first is to Vladimer Putin, while I would like to remind him that , if he still in the Orthodox faith, he must to remember what Jesus said: "it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks". (Acts 9:5) which is considered a strong message to such leader "Putin", and to all who think that they can deal against the divine will, also to all who deal against the divine truth, and to Hypocrites, to the blind leaders, to all who trade in the soul and the humanity under the name of the church or through pretense by false faith.
thus, Mr. Putin you have no power over the church and you can not fight the divine will, while I prefer that you must re-confirm your faith and declares your Orthodoxy faith by reading the Creed in the church. and to be under supervision of one monk who can guide you to the truth in Jesus Christ
While I would like to remind the Holy church in Russia, that the Orthodox church in Russia has produced great saints whose have dealt in their faith in accordance to what Jesus had said: Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. thus, it is considered strange, that Holy church which have full divine power, to be worry from such arch heretic.
