The Constantinople Patriarchate appointed two exarchs “for the preparation of the autocephaly of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church”. The Holy Synod of the Russian Orthodox Church responded to this decision with a statement that is unprecedented in its sharpness.
It included words about the deadlock in relations between the Russian Orthodox Church and the Constantinople Church, and also about the threat to the unity of global Orthodoxy. The arguments given by the Constantinople Patriarch Bartholomew in defence of his position were called false.
If not to delve into the essence of the problem, then it is possible to say that such things have happened before. The Russian Orthodox Church in 2000 already expressed deep concern about the actions of the same Bartholomew in Estonia, where he, encroaching on the canonical territory of the Russian Orthodox Church, also promoted a split in the church.
Now, however, it is not about concern, but about a resolute protest and deep indignation. Taking into account that the church always chooses its words much more accurately than diplomats do and always tries to start with small things in order to not immediately bring things to a deep confrontation, we can ascertain that Bartholomew committed a deed that, if we draw an analogy between the church and state relations, could be called direct and barefaced aggression.
In other words, in 2000, the Constantinople Patriarchate was engaged in petty theft in Estonia. But today it is not about theft, not about a robbery, and even not about banditry, but about the beginning of open war. And not against the Russian Orthodox Church, but against all of world Orthodoxy.
If Patriarch Bartholomew simply wrote out Tomos to some abstract Ukrainian Orthodox Christian, then it would be troublesome for his relations with the Russian Orthodox Church, but not a catastrophe for world Orthodoxy. Because, of course, the fight for canonical territory between the actual leading orthodox force (Russian Orthodox Church) and the nominally “first in honor” Constantinople Patriarchate would touch all world Orthodoxy, but it wouldn’t be critical for it. It would just be a conflict between two orthodox chairs, similar to those that often happened in the past. It terms of its scale it would be larger than the Estonian one, because the church and political value of Ukraine is much more, but in general it would keep within this same framework.
The problem is that Bartholomew took not a church decision, but a political one. He laid down claims to “orthodox papacy”. The Patriarch of Fener individually determined himself as being not just “first in honor”, but also the chief of all Orthodox Christians, having the right, in his arbitrariness, to interfere in the affairs of any church, and in reality – of any diocese.
He didn’t just intrude into the canonical territory of others (which in itself is bad). He accused the Russian Orthodox Church of provoking a Ukrainian split, having actually put at the same level the pseudo-Patriarch Denisenko, Metropolitan Onufry, and Patriarch Kirill. He stated that he doubts the fairness of the anathema of Denisenko and that he is going to consider this question personally. I.e., for him the Russian Orthodox Church, the autonomous Ukrainian Orthodox Church, and the self-proclaimed Patriarch Filaret (Denisenko) are equal parties to the conflict that he is going to judge. In order for this to be understandable for people who are distant from church problems, this is worse than when it is declared in the West that Stalin and Hitler are equal parties to the conflict. It is even worse than if, having reached the limit of “tolerance”, in the West it is declared that Roosevelt, Churchill, and de Gaulle also bear responsibility equal with Hitler for the Holocaust, the genocide of Slavs in occupied territories, the initiation of war, the tens of millions of victims, and even repression in Germany. It is worse because in the case with Hitler’s evaluation there would be talk of a terrestrial political example, of a temporary phenomenon. But in the available case we are dealing with eternity, with the problem of the immortality of the soul. And it’s not even about one soul, but millions of orthodox souls being plunged into split.
If to go straight to the point, Bartholomew suddenly decided to allocate to himself the same (and even vaster) powers than the ones the Pope has in the Catholic world. At the same time it is necessary to understand that the Pope isn’t just the Supreme bishop of the Catholic church, but also a secular sovereign governing the state of Vatican. The Pope is only half (as the head of the church) monk and half (as the head of state) politician. Contrary to the precept of rendering unto Caesar what is Caesar’s, and unto God what is God’s, the Pope tries to combine in himself the divine and the political.
With Bartholomew it is worse. Firstly, he has no territorial state (unlike the Pope, who has the Vatican). He lays claim to political influence within the borders of other states. At the same time, his influence is initially destructive, since he can obtain it only by influencing existing churches. And the mechanism of influence available to him, making him allegedly an “arbitration judge”, is giving support for splits. In the same way that he is unable to pave his way to the canonical territory of the Russian Orthodox Church if he doesn’t support the pseudo-orthodox sectarians of Denisenko, he won’t be able to influence neither Serbian, nor Bulgarian, nor any other orthodox church without the support of such schismatics. Splits are his pillar of support. Only the equation of a bandit with their victim in terms of responsibility (or even the bandit’s justification) allows this Turkish subject working (according to local, Turkish legislation) with a status of nothing more than a tourist attraction to claim to be the supreme all-Orthodox judge and the individual determinant of the canonicity of any heresies. The head of a structure that signed uniatism three times – at a minimum – on the terms of the Holy See, whose “Orthodoxy” was recognised by other churches rather out of charity and the unwillingness to create additional split, suddenly decided to become “holier than the Pope”.
He can’t but understand that he initiates a split in Orthodoxy. At the same time, he understands that he violates not just canons and traditions, but also the decisions of the Ecumenical Councils, which established not only the rules of relations between episcopal chairs, but also the symbol of faith. If today it is possible to ignore one of the decisions of these Councils, then tomorrow it will also be possible to rewrite the symbol of faith. Especially since the Constantinople Patriarchate already three times signed uniatism with the Roman throne, each time recognising its subordinated position towards Rome.
Bartholomew is not a child small. He knows very well that he acts against the canons of world Orthodoxy and that he touches the interests of all orthodox churches, each of which has its own schismatics who, on the basis of the latest statements of the Constantinople Patriarchate, Bartholomew (as he considers) can recognise as being rather canonical.
Bartholomew knows what he risks. He also understands that the US weakened and can’t provide him with comprehensive support, and that Turkey – which he is a citizen of – won’t be delighted by his actions directed not just against the Russian Orthodox Church, but also against political Moscow, being the ally of Istanbul. It’s also not a secret for him that practically all orthodox churches refuse to support him and to recognise the competency of his actions in Ukraine. Everyone understands that it can become the next victim of the Constantinople “peacemaker”.
Constantinople also ought to understand that the influence of the weak and unpopular (the “pro-European”, or to be more exact – pro-American governments of Eastern European countries) on the church situation is minimal. The church in these countries enjoys bigger authority than the government does. Politicians there have no chance of forcing local churches to support Constantinople. Of course, supporters of Bartholomew can be found among local hierarchs, but this will only create additional lines of split, dividing world Orthodoxy in a worse way than the Great Schism of 1054 divided Christianity.
For Ukraine, Bartholomew’s actions unambiguously mean religious war, in which not streams, but rivers of blood will be shed, and already not only the Ukrainian state (which already burst) will be destroyed, but also the people living on territory that is formally subordinated to the current Kiev authorities. And Fener already knows this. They understand very well that they are provoking a horrible civil religious conflict, thus standing on the side of schismatics and sectarians against true Orthodox Christians. The Istanbul bishop isn’t mistaken. He is aware that he acts against his own faith and hundreds of millions of orthodox believers over the entire world. He sacrifices his immortal soul for the sake of momentary political benefits. Such a decision can be made only by someone whose belief is dead and who stopped being a monk, a priest, a bishop, but who became a politician, who stopped being a servant of God, and who started to serve the knight of this world [the devil – ed]. The Constantinople Patriarch lays claim to the laurels of pseudo-teachers and pseudo-prophets that John of Patmos describes as the forerunners of the Antichrist.
Bartholomew’s actions already don’t correspond even to the interests of the US (which always acted as a supporter of the Ukrainian split). This is much more than the US would’ve liked. The situation stops being controlled from Washington. The Constantinople Patriarch starts laying claim to the status of an independent political figure who is no less influential than the leaders of the largest faiths and heads of leading states. But he tries to obtain this status without having the corresponding opportunities in orthodox sobornost, as a teacher of split. Bartholomew builds his political career precisely by plunging millions and even tens of millions of Orthodox Christians into split, sacrificing not only his, but also their souls, standing on the side of world evil.
His actions are much more large-scale than the split initiated by Denisenko, and is thus more dangerous. In comparison with Bartholomew, who strives for the status of a pseudo-patriarch, the pseudo-patriarch Filaret is a mere child.
Bartholomew’s split is caused by Constantinople’s understanding of the simple fact that the US, which before this served as the base of the ambitions of the Istanbul Patriarchate and gave via its support considerably bigger influence to him than what his weight allows, becomes weaker and is no longer a factor of force.
Only split, only destruction, only pitting orthodox believers against each other – both in a global context and within the framework of every church – can create for Constantinople a new pillar of support. Bartholomew is not the first to try to become equal to God by acting against God. And he is not the last to try to exchange influence bought in this world on the back of bloodshed for immortality of the soul. At his age and with his rank, spontaneous decisions are simply not made. He weighed up everything: both the possibilities of countering other orthodox faiths and the probable reaction of an anti-American orientated Erdogan – who is the situational ally of Russia in the Middle East, and the inevitability of the bloodshed initiated by him in Ukraine. He weighed things up and made his choice, and he will see it to the end.
That’s why the Moscow Patriarchate, although it doesn’t opt for an immediate severance of relations, starts responding with statements that are more rigid than what happened in previous such cases. The Russian Orthodox Church reasonably doesn’t want to assume responsibility for inciting a conflict, but shows absolute understanding of the fact that Constantinople won’t cool its passions any more and will go to the very end. Hence the phrase about responsibility falling on the Fener Patriarchate and its leader Bartholomew.
It is a affirmation of fact that the Second Rome, following the First Rome, definitively (not only in a political, but also in a spiritual sense) turned into a stronghold of world evil. Sooner or later this will be said openly. The church isn’t in a hurry since it is obliged to admonish and heal, and only in second place, if the schismatics and heretics remain incorrigible and stagnate in sin, does it punish and denounce. But we, already now, are obliged to live with the realisation of the fact that the unity of world Orthodoxy once again was subjected to a test and that another split became as inevitable as there being hundreds of thousands, or maybe even millions, of its future victims.
Can’t he be ignored. Article assumes a need to take him seriously. So the CIA plants someone in Constantinople. Refute his words, then forget him. Start the process to get a real bishop appointed to the position, since he is fake.
“Today we begin the search for a truly Orthodox bishop.”
As this unfolds, and the predicted civil war in Ukrainian territory boils over, what are the likely repercussions here in the US? If the soft power of Russia is her living faith, and the Orthodox churches, then these churches will become the first legitimate targets of public consensus – Americans already fear and irrationally despise it and the Russians both. Personally I have grave doubts as to the future security of American Slavs, and those who align themselves in spirit with suffering Othodoxy. Although how many Western Orthodox will face persecutions for this faith? surely not all, when ecumenism lives so boldly here by all measures. Although it remains impossible to my way of thinking that the Red Terror will strike us down here, as perhaps Solzhenitsyn suggested, nonetheless it can’t hurt to prepare for such an outcome – that is, preparing to be shot and done to death.
Thanks, all, for your insights on this –now the whole picture is getting clearer as to what the Real War is all about. Chris, someone could easily write a volume called “The dark side of ecumenism”, part of which would deal with the “watering down” or denial of the power of sin and evil in our world, part of which would deal with the Power of the Lie, and part of which would deal with how the churches in America sold their souls for that 501 (c) (3) corporate tax exemption…..if they want to retain that they must become shills for US government policies. . None of these things have “helped” people spiritually. Many good lay people believe that “ecumenism” was forced upon them by the human higher-ups and truth be told, some of the people resent it, because they see it as a betrayal , as part of the larger “selling out” to evil, and I fear the whole thing could turn ugly surprisingly fast, with lots of angry words and fist-waving, or worse. But Maybe some of the Judases who have sold their flocks out and the proven child molesters should be strung up?–I wonder. There is a book out there that I haven’t read yet called Blood on the Altar — if I remember the summary correctly it talks about how Christians will be turned against each other. Personally I believe that got off to a big start about 500 years ago, so this practice of divide and conquer is pretty old.
I was expecting this, while at the same time hoping it would not happen. There is no question that this is a political decision, the Constantinople Patriarchate being under direct pressure from the West, which hopes to terminate the jurisdiction of the Russian Orthodox Church in Ukraine, and to conclude the creation of a Ukrainian ethnic group, even though Ukrainians are of Russian origin, with the Ukrainian language possessing 90 % Russian words, the remaining 10 % being Polish and Yiddish.
By creating the so-called Ukrainian Orthodox Church, which has no reason to exist, all the Russian Orthodox churches and monasteries will automatically be bestowed to the newly created Ukrainian Orthodox Church, which quite simply is unacceptable.
This is not a wise decision. In fact it is an additional blunder by the West. It will just increase the rift in the already fragile Ukraine and contribute to its breakup. Even if this Ukrainian Orthodox Church is created, I don’t see it lasting too long.
And the agreement between Russia and Ukraine, the friendship treaty, is being canceled by the Ukraine.
Religious turmoil in the Ukraine with absence of the treaty could change Kremlin calculations, change options, as Kremlin is very attentive to international law.
This blunder/blunders could backfire on the Ukraine and west in ways they won’t like.
RT’s Worlds Apart programme had an interview today on this subject with Metropolitan Hilarion of Volokolamsk, chairman of the Moscow Patriarchate Department for External Church Relations:
The MHV explains the matters very clearly – despite repeated interruptions by Liberal Boyko.
Sadly, it seems Bartholomew is a trojan horse within the church, whose real loyalties do not lie not with the orthodox people…
In the West, Bartholomew was always presented as the “first among the equals” of orthodox patriarchs, named “Most Influential” by TIME magazine (yes THAT rag!) over the orthodox christians, and the supposed “counter-part to the Pope” in the Vatican. The reality is that of the 300 M orthodox in the world, 2/3 live on Russian territory and former Soviet Republics, so therefore it would be normal that the Patriarch who lives in Moscow is more influential that Bartholomew. Why he now decides to take this decision, against the advice from the Moscow Patriarch is incomprehensible.
I guess this whole confusion stems from the fact that Moscow Patriarch has had it’s role diminished due to the communist regime of the Soviet union. Bolshevism is the gift that keeps on giving…
I am not at all sure this will work though. In fact, it could even backfire against Bartholomew..For what it’s worth, Irinej of Serbia has already strongly disagreed with this:
I agree with you
And the Patriarch of Jerusalem as well (http://www.interfax-religion.com/?act=news&div=14461), and ROCOR of course…
The US is not hiding its hand in this – on the contrary:
Here is a report from Poroshenko’s office:
“Ambassador Brownback assured that the United States would further support Ukraine in its struggle for the restoration of sovereignty and territorial integrity and the right to have the Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church.” http://www.interfax-religion.com/?act=news&div=14463
This Brownback is “Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom”
What you wrote is very important development – in a negative way – in my opinion. The road to new accusation against Russia is widely open now : “Freedom of Religion”. In that sense, what Bartholomew did, looks as being the very part of the same path.
Wandering what stand would take Greek Orthodox Church?
The underlying hatred and fear of Russia had to focus on the core of Russian psychology. To bloody the Orthodox Church and its foundation within Russian society seems a logical target for the godless Hegemon (driven by the Satanists of Khazarian ideology).
How utterly deviant the minds that conjured this new front in the Hybrid War against Russia.
The situation with Orthodox in former Communist lands is very complicated. The Ukrainian church is under control entirely of western/Vatican intelligence services. The West with its alliance of Zionism, Protestantism and Vatican- for all the 20th century funded anti Communist churches, separatists and Uniates, all with the attempt to divide the East from within. For Example, in Romania the Orthodox church worked completely with Communism and helped against western infiltration. They banned and took over the Greek Uniate churchs and they stopped all Anglo-Zionist protestants and Mormon and Scientologist cults. All still with the atheist state! I tell you. the Communist states of the East was ten times more christian than the ‘Judaeo-Christian’ West.
As for Evangelical American, Zio-Baptist and Calvinist, can they even be called Christians, because what they say is so different from Jesus words. Be modest, help others, do not be individualist, share possessions – These are Eastern values, whether we are Christian or Communist. The Anglo Zionist extremists are literally the opposite. Greedy, Ego, Lust, and more Greed.
Well, from what I’ve seen, it seems that those western churches you mention do not follow the idea of remission of sins past, but try to always punish people with sins of past for the rest of their lives. More like purge the sinner, to get rid of the sin, rather than purge the sin and save the person. But I could be wrong.
Agree with you Black Sea Monster, what appears to be an antagonism, yes indeed, the Romanian Orthodox Church has collaborated with the Communist to repel the attacks led by the Anglo Zionist Protestants trying to infiltrate the various religious cults. Sadly, the latter succeeded with the coup in 1989.
It only has interest for political exploiters of religion.
For true believers its just another example of the corruption and eternal fight among pharisees about who has the highest hat and gold scepter, walking from receptions to vip meetings with power players.
True believers follow only the road of Christ:
“Beware of “organisation”, its wholly unnecessary. The bible/Quran/Torah will be the only rules you need. Dont seek to bind others´consciences, and do not permit others´to bind yours.”
The church, organisation, religious institution is only relevant for man in the very moment it fulfills its true purpose. Sorry guys.
Parts of the bible have been mis-represented (masoretic text), and mis-translated (vulgate) so solo scriptura will not save you from human corruption. By the way, the bible didn’t exist during the first 50 years or so after Christ. The knowledge was transmitted through churches and kept alive through tradition.
But I do agree with your message that if your church is corrupt then you’re better off without it, pretty much the same rule as as with government.
it was hundreds of years before the bible existed – as it does now – St Augustine was in the fourth century –
I wish the New Testament was not attached to the Old Testament – its all so over rated anyway – I believe in Christ – I believe in God – I believe the New Testament – all of it – but God and Christ and the Holy Angels are all still there – even if the church and the bibile were to disappear from our dear planet –
its all over-rated and out-dated.
“I wish the New Testament was not attached to the Old Testament”
Pick and Mix. You might as well, that’s what everyone else does with various parts of the fable.
It is all over rated but bang up-to-date.
Thanks. I know, for example the Scofield bible is obvious manipulated.
But manipulation of the Scriptures is not a point in my opinion. In the Scriptures you find what we can call universal truth and a red line from our beginning to our end.
The description of the Creation of our sun system and the earth. Adam and Eve. The 10 Commandments. Jesus Christ and his recommendations and advises. Also a lot of good philosophy, basic definitions on how you define faith, and why the only true happiness comes from living God´s principles.
Thus its possible to pick the divine “goldcorns” and live the spirit without believing in obvious mis-representations and mis-translations.
I disagree with people who only want the new testament. We need both to understand the beginning and why God made a new addition to his old testament, although I admit there are various stories in the old testament its difficult to understand considering the spirit in the evangelics.
“We need both to understand the beginning and why God made a new addition to his old testament…”
We need to understand why God bothered with a creation the vast majority of which he knew (before they were created) would be condemned to Hell for all eternity.
According to Bible, God erased all but Noah Arch form the earth surface, but afterwoods he regretted and made the rainbow to remember hmself and all humans about his promise never to do that again.
Remember we are born with a divine spirit, and with an ability and responsibility to choose. God is not a nanny state where you can hide behind a scapegoat.
“but afterwoods he regretted”
Why would an entity that knew the outcome before it occurred ever regret anything.
You have to define your question more precisely. What specific outcome?
God did not knew the planet on Noahs times and area would be filled with depraved people and only one man had a worthy heart.
Your human free will, can only be predicted after many years of experience with your personality.
American MSM religiosity has nearly dropped-off the map since the Twin towers anti-Islam patriotism era, will we now see a revival of this empty happy-clappy? how else can Russia be portrayed convincingly as an enemy of the ecumenical catholic/anti-catholic West when the current paradigm disallows any positive mention of Christianity – in favor of the fakes and flakes and faggots. Currently we believe in every miracle of TV, whether scientism or pantheistic witchcraft/aliens, are we then deemed ready for “the religion of the future”.
Ukraine and what is going on right now there are under the prophecies of Saint Lawrence of Chernigov.And we know the outcome too.
The problem is they all say they are divinely appointed by God; The church of catholics, protestants, evangelics, jews, orthodox, m.m..
And the amusing thing is, Jesus describes them all clearly as pharisees. Hypocrites who claim to be divinely appointed but openly break God´s Commandments.
well, it seems to me that this split is against Russia – so the idiot bought into the US – or rather – was bought –
I’m sorry to hear about it – but people everywhere must realize that their relationship to Christ – and to God – is personal – not based on an earthly institution.
I understand that my words are easy and this split is not – that the Russian people will react and its obvious that only the Catholic Church will profit from all this – which was FOR SURE foreseen by Bart – (Barf) but Heaven will not be a part of a unity or a split – its up to each soul – if that soul will abide in immortality – the end of the entire church system is nigh – it can be seen on the Horizon – pray for your own soul – you mortal – pray to the Son of God – to be with you until the ends of the earth – and beyond.
I put this link followed by no other comments:
I’m not educated enough to comment on theological issues so I won’t. All I know is that the election of His All Holiness was a miracle. For what purpose is beyond my understanding, but it is important to remember that God has plan. Some people focus on the tablecloth without considering that the tablecloth is not the feature of the dinner table. It is easy to forget these things, which is why it’s important we refrain from making emotional comments about things that we don’t fully understand. Much love to all, and have faith in God.
Who is behind all this? It seems pretty obvious that it is the Vatican? The outcome of the move to create an autocephalous Ukrainian Curch is to push for a new ‘Unia’ which will follow and ‘unify’ the Ukrainian ‘Christians’ against the ‘schismatics’.
Holy cow! I see a holy war unfolding, with God and all his angels on one side. Which side that is, depends on who will live to tell the story and write the history books.
Russia should really have a go at propaganda, since it already stands accused. I’d start with a deep fake video of Bartholomew hugging Fethullah Gulen.
Creating a schism is one of the heaviest of karmas. In Buddhist teachings the five heaviest sins which send you absolutely surely to hell are to wound the Buddha, to kill an enlightened saint, to kill one’s father, kill one’s mother and to create a schism in the Order of monks.
Buddists believe in hell????
Ukes don’t want to be run by Moscow in any shape or form
Bartholomew did the right thing
Is he also playing an American game?
Probably yes…but surrounded by belligerent Turkey ha needs all the friends he can get
The ukrainian orthodox church did not ask for independence from Moscow at all. It is being imposed upon them by Poroschenko and his stooges who are desperately pursuing autocephaly from Bartholomew.
Btw, the one reason Bartholomew had a certain “power” within orthodoxy is because it was bestowed upon him though consensus by all the churches. The minute this consensus disappears, his power is gone.
There are two ways this can end: He can either backtrack realising that he is sawing off the branch he is sitting on. Or he will go ahead with this decision, creating a schism, but the majority of the Orthodox christians will follow Moscow. He will be ex-communicated, and once the orthodox world abandons him, his western sponsors will quickly drop him, as he will become useless to them.
There are very strong centripetal forces around Russia, as a spiritual centre of Orthodoxy, and these forces are too powerful for one man (Bartholomew) to overcome.
Perhaps it is time for the Saker, who is much better informed, or some other Orthodox scholar to weigh in on this.
Is there any sign that the leaders of Ukraine are in fact Christian?
Do they care for the poor and the sick and the weak in their country?
Do they turn the other cheek towards their enemies and love their enemies as if they were their brothers (and sisters)?
Do they seek good will towards all people and peace on earth?
They are definitely and declared not Christian, but there is a strange reluctance to call the spade a spade.
Not being Christian I’m not knowledgeable enough to comment on this article/subject, but on a related note, I expect the West will try to exploit religious and cultural differences of anti-imperialist nations to divide them against each other.Especially considering Russia is secular and Christian while Iran is Muslim and China is secular,Confucian,Buddhist and Taoist.
Russia is secular, Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Buddhist etc. That is my understanding. The sects may be of diminished population in outer regions, but nevertheless they are endemic to the places they inhabit within the Russian Federation and worship freely therein.

Patrijaršija Konstantinopolja, dakle Patrijaršija nečeg što više ne postoji, egzistencija ni na čemu, to je priča, i može li ona biti opravdana ili je pogrešna. Ovo je simbioza parazitska koja je uvijek štetna za Pravoslavlje u Pravoslavlju a potiče iz nepostojećeg iz ništa samo kopira model Konstantinopolja, to je krivotvoreni i izopačeni duh jer je svojstvo nečeg u stvarnosti koja je tamo ili trebala bi biti tamo u Konstantinopolju koji nije realan, postoji kao nešto što u stvarnosti ne postoji, ovo je egzistencija od ništa.
Translation: The Patriarchate of Constantinople, that is, the Patriarchate of something no longer exists, existence on nothing, it is a story, and can it be justified or wrong. This is a symbiosis of the parasitic, which is always harmful to Orthodoxy in Orthodoxy and originates from a nonexistent copy of the model of Constantinople, it is a forgiving and distorted spirit because the property of something in the reality that is there or should be there in a Constantinople that is not real as something that in reality does not exist, this is the existence of nothing.
America is weaponizing not only Islam but also Orthodox Christianity against Russia by promoting this religious division within the Orthodox world.
Divide et Impera is an instinctive response of the American Empire.
Perhaps, it’s time to give the disUnited States of America a taste of its own medicine on this account.
US Encouraging the Division of Ukraine along Religious Lines
The Orthodox Church has always been what it is; top-down organized and imposed spirituality by a multi thousand (actually 570 million, google ‘Dorchester Pot’) year old feudal elite that means to deceive humanity and bring us all ill.
In 2004 I was told that 19/20 monasteries in the Orthodox city state of Mount Athos in northern Greece are led by an abbot that is a Freemason. If the abbot is a Freemason it means that consequently that the whole monastery is run accordingly. One of the highest acknowledged Freemasons is 33rd degree Albert Pike and to paraphrase him, “Freemasonry is a religion of itself”.
It is not a question if the Patriarch of Constantinopel is a Kabbalist (Freemason or other) and as such a part of the many groups within various religions that constitute the Millenarians, of which the German Nazis also were – Thousand Year Reichers. Millenarians will not only be found among Christians such as Dominionists, Mormons, but also the Wahabi ISIS and Al-Qaeda are equally so. Do you start seeing a pattern?
The fact of the existence of a Hegemon, i.e. 95-99% rule over its opposites who practically are so non-existent that they are “invisible”, dictates that we its antithesis – humanity – are lost/deceived to a hegemonic proportion (95-99% of what we think how things are).
The scientific article of Ramtanu Maitra called The Muslim Brootherhood: The Many Faces of Their Majesties’ Service shows that the MB was created by MI6. Now, Britain might be run by the parliament but its two most actual Deep State rulers are the Rothchild dynasty and the Queen (or perhaps the Queen Mother). The royal family are Kabbalists and hence MI6 is also together with all its creations.
Following Kabbalism on that line, MB is connected to the rulers of Qatar, Turkey, AKP as well as Fetulah Gulen and his followers (who are part of the New Age Order, just like the Qi-gong movement in China, the Tibetan clergy, etc.), the Tories in the UK and traditionally the Conservatives in the US. In short, the contemporary groups have genealogical roots among the Feudal Trinity.
Now the Feudalists were challenged by the Mercantilists (merchants who the Rotchilds and banksters used as a front) and who later changed name to the Liberals, and who defeated the Feudalists through Capitalism (the Market). From ca 1970 on wards the Feudalists were swallowed through Neo-liberalism, that is the creation of the Freiburg School and the Chicago School of Economics where also Neo-conservativism was invented (because they are the same ideology, just different labels).
So today you will find the US Conservative president is controlled by Talmudist Jared Kushner while both Bush’s are Kabbalists, just like Obama and both Clintons. Do you start seeing a pattern?
Merkel is a Kabbalist (just like her father (!) Adolf Hitler) while Macron is connected to the Rothchilds. The schism in the US that some elites want to impeach Trump etc. is because the latter is connected to Constellation Draco; the Rakshasa serpent/reptoid/dracoid race that was the last of E.T. races to invade Earth and interbreed with humanity. The main opponents of the Rakshasas (in Greece they were the Spartans) was and is the Naga Serpent led Alliance (in Greece it was primarily the Athenians) that has its genealogical origin in Constellation Pleiades.
So the Patriarch of Constantinopel is a serpent of the Nagas or the Dracos, but what does that make the Patriarch of Moscow? I don’t know, but why has the latter not told us about what the the other year visited when his ship went down to Antarctica? He met with the dragons living there – the Beasts.
For sure, in the coming years will see the importance of the Patriarch of Constantinopel grow as Erdogan takes over the role of the Biblical Antichrist from MBS.
Interesting. Thanks for yr effort.
I read late article and comments. It seems important to me to underline a demographic consideration. Modern Orthodoxy is a world where the Russian Church gathers more faithfuls alone than all the others combined. This means that Moscow could rule itself simply by vetoing or by absenteism (even justified as in the late synod).
But on the long run the substantial number preminence of the Third Rome could become a problem of identity of the minority churches, and not only for Constantinople. The second Rome is interested in keeping its historical role somehow alive, by obviously downsizing its biggest competitor (Moscow), but the other churches too (all but Moscow) will try to build their own synodal orthodoxy, just as they did in the panorthodox synod, already called by some the last synod of the old roman empire, simply because it’s the only arena where they could have a word.
I fear it’s just a matter of time for mediterranean orthodoxy and russian orthodoxy to split up, because of language, because of different survival problems, because of lack of unity and obedience.
Bartholomew could become something like a pope of Orthodoxs only if that half of them could ask for it. But the comparison with the Pope that is half politician because it’s a head of State is meaningless: the pope in Rome is half politician because a huge share of voters in western democracies still recognize in him a sort of reference, not because of a state; the popes didn’t suceed in taking western countries together neither when Romev had a real state…
