Pray so they do not serve alone. Ephesians 6:10-20
I never thought I'd ever agree 100% with something Vladimir Putin said, but he's exactly right about this. I am a bit surprised that he seemingly disparaged the Communist Revolution though. After all, had it not been for the revolution, Putin wouldn't right now be Russia's
Putin's denounced previous Communist persecution of Christians. Not there, so I don't know if this was a political move to curry favor with the Russian Orthodox Church, or if he was pressured to do it by the ROC, or if he did it because it was the right thing to do. Or a little of each.
