I’m referring to the early and pre-Great Schism Church’s Tradition. This time if the Russians want to roll westward, by all means, let them. A strong Orthodox Christian and post-communist Russia can only help to improve both the moral and social climate of Europe; thus helping to stem the rise of both militant Islam and atheism. My only concern with the Orthodox is their unwillingness to allow other Christian Churches operate freely within Russia. God’s Truth and love know of no ethnic groupings or borders.
