I checked out the FB album featuring that priest with the rasson and sword.  It describes him as above.  I ♥ it.

I think that instead of pledging loyalty or abjuring earthly nations, they should ask the question "Dost thou renounce Satan, all his ministers, his deeds and his pride?" That would be totally appropriate.

The term planet earth is an innovation which has arisen in recent centuries with the error of heliocentrism.

If one wants to confess a pure doctrine of Orthodoxy, they should be careful not to refer to the earth as a planet, unlike the current Pope as well as Patriarch Kirill and Patriarch Bartholomew, who regularly speak in error when they refer to our planet earth.

You actually can eat the little black fruits.
Many Energies, 3 Persons, 2 Natures, 1 God, 1 Church, 1 Baptism, and 1 Cup. The Son begotten only from the Father, the Spirit proceeding only from the Father, Each glorifying the Other. The Son sends the Spirit, the Spirit Reveals the Son, the Father is seen in the Son. The Spirit spoke through the Prophets and Fathers and does so even today.

I must say that I'm favourably impressed with the sensible and functional creativity of the Russians to provide a place of worship for the faithful. We've seen pictures of trains, tanks, river boats, and likely other seemingly odd creations. Many North Americans bemoan the fact that the nearest Orthodox church is a lengthy drive. Why aren't our leaders encouraging Russian-style options for those locations? I guess that's a topic for another thread in another forum.

Maybe it's because most of Russia IS Orthodox.

Can you imagine seeing this church making its way down the Mississippi?  ....or a tank church rolling down Mainstreet?   Folks would think it's some sort of parade or something.

You have to measure actual need and use of the mini church against the ridicule and actual harm it might do in the eyes of the populace.
