Last summer weekend “protests” staged by the followers of liberal extremist ideology annoyed Muscovites and brought forwards a few large lawsuits from the center city rent paying businesses. I am trying now to write for thesaker.is an analysis of the summer events and their consequences, not to mention that a few events might deserve a separate article.
But here, in my blog, I want to talk about the common misconception promulgated as a “Christian” and being nothing more than an attempt to trap us by the words of the Preexistent, misinterpreted and misunderstood.
While the “protests” were going on in Moscow, a few men wearing the Orthodox Christian priests garbs joined a few B-movie actors and a bunch of bloggers-for-hire and published an open letter demanding from the laymen cum social media users to love the provocateurs as ‘their fellow neighbors.’ In Russian it’s literally “those who are close to you.”
So, “the representatives of the creative elite” and the clergy as they call themselves urge us to love as thyself those who jump and scream at the city corners demanding that the absolute majority of us who consistently vote and support our President were ignored, the desires of a few freaks, ordered around by the American Embassy and German media, were obeyed, and the people, seeking destabilization of our country and our collective grief, to be loved. The same opened letter urged us to reject and hate those who defend us and our interests, to hate those Police officers who were attacked, beaten and injured for defending the law and order.
Instead-of-priests, using the Church as a cover, organized the loud public demarche demanding us to love those who spit at us as voters, at the laws of our land and the defenders of the laws.
What happens to those nations who don’t defend their our laws, you might ask. They disappear into oblivion. Those creatures want this to happen to us. They are irritated that people are not buying their BS. This is not the first time these stand-ins for real orthodox priests call us to love the Children of Satan claiming that they are our neighbors, using the general ignorance of churchgoers and secular citizens in the matters of theology and the Scripture.
Have you ever heard a priest explaining who are those whom we shall love as ourselves? Me neither. So, let’s look at this.
Who are those neighbors whom we should love as thyself?
The story described by Luke started when the seventy Apostles returned from their mission joyful, saying, Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your name. He said to them that he saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven, and gave them the authority to trample over all the power of the enemy without being hurt. Nevertheless, the Preexistent says, do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven.
In the middle of everyone’s joy and happiness, as they usually behave, the Child of Satan’s face comes up to the surface from the crowd and squawks. (Needless to say that Christ was surrounded by their spies and agent provocateurs. They constantly were trying to test and entrap the Preexistent by His words, just like the modern pseudo-priests try to catch us by the Lord’s words by interpreting them in their own foul spirit.)
And behold, a certain lawyer stood up and tested Him, saying, “Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?”
I can see how the Apostles stopped celebrating, and the joy drained out of their faces. They just were told by the Preexistent that their names were written in heaven, and the Child of Satan’ question was formulated exactly to undermine their faith by implying that they didn’t do what is required to get the eternal life.
The Preexistent saw right away what it was and answered with a question, the way He always talked to them, What is written in the law? What is your reading of it?
The answer we know: ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind,’ and ‘your neighbor as yourself.’
And the Preexistent told to this insistent woodpecker, “You have answered rightly; do this and you will live.”
Next the latch revealed why he started the conversation on the first place.
And the Preexistent tells to a dense Satan’s baby the story of a merchant traveling from Jerusalem to Jericho, who was attacked, robbed, wounded and left to die on a side of a well traveled road by the thieves. By default we assume that it was the member of the lawyer’s tribe. A passing priest came down the road, saw his fellow dying tribesman and crossed the road to be as far from him as possible. The Levite showed up and repeated the priest’s maneuver.
Previously, the Lord said to Aaron while turning them into the levites, “You, your sons and your family are to bear the responsibility for offenses connected with the sanctuary, and you and your sons alone are to bear the responsibility for offenses connected with the priesthood.”
The priest on the road clearly violated the Lord’s Commandment in terms they have been preaching to the laymen.
You are to be responsible for the care of the sanctuary and the altar, so that my wrath will not fall on the Israelites again.
But the peabrain woodpeckers never learn, do they?
One who actually followed the Lord’s commandment, happened to be from a different tribe, hated by the first two, and, we assume, by the injured merchant himself. He has been programed to hate the Samaritans by both, by the priests and by the Levites. The Samaritan felt compassion towards the merchant. He cleaned up and bandaged his wounds, and mount the wounded on his own animal, brought him to an inn, took care of him over night and paid for his care in the inn.
The Preexistent asked the obvious, So which of these three do you think was neighbor to him who fell among the thieves? [literally, who was attacked by thieves.]
The Preexistent asked the child of Satan who was testing Him: So which of these three do you think was neighbor to him who fell among the thieves?
The child of Satan couldn’t bring himself to say that it was a Samaritan, such great was his hatred, and gave a description, instead.
He who showed mercy on him.
And the Preexistent says Go and do likewise.
And here is the conclusion. Or, a few conclusions that we will consider in their natural order.
BTW, your neighbor is not the right translation and simply misleading. The right translation would be “fellow” or “those who are close to you.
First, neighbor is NOT ANYONE, but HE WHO HELPED YOU AT YOUR Worst hour…
HE WHO HELPED YOU IN YOUR GRIEF…
HE WHO HELPED YOU IN DANGER!!!!
Second conclusion, many of those who you consider your neighbors, be it a priest of your faith or an official, might not be them.
The Third conclusion, to LOVE YOUR neighbor doesn’t mean to love anyone you meet. Just because some people wear priestly robes or some uniform they are not your neighbors. Absolutely NOT.
The fourth conclusion, YOU AND ONLY YOU DECIDE who is your neighbor, because only you know who helped you in your most desperate hour, because adversity might be not just in dying on the side of the road, but only you know who helped you.
And the final conclusion, which is mostly about the Children of Satan. Go and do what is said.
What exactly did the Samaritan do? He didn’t look who was in front of him, what religious, nationality or social standing. He treated an injured man as he would treated himself.
Needless to say that the COS never considered doing what was commanded of them, are not doing that now, and make no plans to follow this in the future.
What do they offer to us, instead?
They urge us to do exactly the opposite to what the Preexistent taught us to do. They offer us to treat as our neighbors those who spit at our Church and culture, spit at our political choices, those who call us “slaves” for our faith and “biological trash” for our loyalty to our principles. I won’t even list here all the insults they hurled at us.
Protest against the Orthodox Christian Church in Yekaterinburg
Our self-proclaimed “neighbors” are the levites who walked by and crossed the road when we as a nations were dying injured on the side of the road, while they were looting our properties and destroying our Army and Fleet. They were murdering our true neighbors, our military officers, whom they threw out from everywhere.
These pseudo-priests are the worst, since they intentionally and willfully confuse and misdirect people, and for that they will pay… but this is a different story.
Thus, don’t confuse your neighbors with those who are their complete opposite, because everything has been explained by the Preexistent.
I know that many, especially among the Russians, would think about what I just wrote and would not come up with any name. Nobody helped them in their hardest moment in life and they got themselves out of it. Even if you can’t think of anybody, there are still your fellows who worked in the 90s to pull Russia from the abyss, when people were dying in millions under the rule of the Children of Satan, our fellows did everything what needed to be done in silence and helped and saved everyone. That makes those people to be close to us, even if we don’t know them personally.
We also have Him, Who allowed the salvation to take place, because without Him nothing would happen, when our City upon the Hill was enveloped into the Darkness.
