Last December 12, President Vladimir Putin reiterated his stance about the importance of conservative and moral values and that to choose otherwise will lead to chaos. Russians understood what he said because most Russians are conservative. Putin was recently voted person of the year. Last December 19th Putin held a news conference where most reporters answered their own questions much to Putin's delight and amusement. However, the president had to show Grandfatherly patience when an American reporter asked a question that everyone in the room but her knew the answer to. She and her western colleagues in the media have yet to see Russia in her true light. On the other hand, perhaps they do see Russia clearly and are still set to destroy her as the Bolsheviks did in 1917.
She said she had lived in Russia but obviously did not learn a thing while there. In this information and jet age she was seeing Russia from her own point of view or from the view of her handlers. Jill Dougherty from CNN asked Putin why religion and moral values are so important now. "I don't remember it being like that", she said. If she had talked to the Russians there or noticed the rebuilding of the churches as many did she would not have asked such an idiotic question. We know that the colleges and universities have been conquered by the Communists in America but surely she has heard about the millions of Christian martyrs that were murdered along with the Tsar's family. Having lived in Russia she would have heard about the religious Christian foundation Russia was set upon 1025 years ago. Are Jill and the western media that stupid or just ignorant like Obama who keeps making the Soviet mistake?
"Why is it so important for you to criticize Western values?" she asked defensively. Unrepentant sinners always attack those who are trying to obey God's will. Putin calmly responded, "The issue is not to criticize someone but to shield us from the rather aggressive behavior of certain social groups, which, in my opinion, not just live the way they like, but also aggressively impose their views on other people and other countries." Putin swore an oath to protect Russia and he has done so successfully.
"I want to reiterate something I said in the Address to the Federal Assembly: yes, this is a conservative approach, but let me remind you of Berdyaev's words that the point of conservatism is not that it obstructs movement forward and upward, but that it prevents the movement backward and downward. That, in my opinion, is a very good formula, and it is the formula that I propose. There's nothing unusual for us here. Russia is a country with a very profound ancient culture, and if we want to feel strong and grow with confidence, we must draw on this culture and these traditions, and not just focus on the future."
In America's liberal circles anything old is ridiculed. In the 1970's they used to say, "Hey it's the 70's, let's do it!" or "C'mon, it's the 80's" and so forth. As though all that is new is good and nothing from the past is valued. Even western churches have abandoned their past like the Catholic Church that changed after Vatican II in the 60's. Their traditions faded and the door to paganism was opened unaware that they allowed an ancient serpent to enter among their midst. Pope Paul the VI exclaimed in 1972, "From some fissure the smoke of Satan has entered the temple of God."
That same serpent that almost destroyed Russia in the early 20th century has run amok across the globe. In America it sees Russia rising from the ashes and again worshipping Christ which is something they hate. I am not speaking of the conservative Christians in America. I am referring to only those who have taken the seal of the anti-Christ. Those whose spirit find the Christian Church objectionable and who speak under different guises when attacking Russia. They too think they are embracing something new and wonderfully hopeful. In reality they have accepted that same evil serpent which like a python constricts them to Hell.
Remember when the western media defended "Pussy Riot"? They preferred to herald perverted girls that defile churches in Russia. The church destroyed by Communists and rebuilt by the Russian faithful was their chosen place of protest. The West wants separation of church and state so they were exuberant. The news proclaimed how terrible Putin is and how he jailed poor little girls in a band who were just singing in church. Even the conservative media like talk radio, supposedly Christian, ignored the Russian church and men like Putin who helped it. Propaganda they say. Propaganda we say when the West warps or ignores the truth of a Church Christ Himself saved. Christ rose from the dead and He has raised up the Russian Church as well.
Over 2000 years ago a man shouted at a rabbi, "Have you come to destroy us?". Now the western media asks, "Why is it so important for you to criticize Western values?" They really mean to ask, "Have you come to destroy us?" The powers of the West and their puppet media are not really questioning President Vladimir Putin. In front of the whole world they are openly asking Jesus Christ, whom Putin serves, "What do you want with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are - ". Don't you see? They fear Christ and they fear He is coming back to destroy them. Just when they felt they ruled the world they are reminded that Christ is King. Thy Kingdom come!
