You should write a letter to His All Holiness Patriarch Bartholomew (they understand Russian at the Phanar) and ask His All Holiness:
tell me where fathers teach to care about earth development as fundamental Christian goal?
Why do you ask us questions that we cannot answer?
Brother, i do not ask questions , but raise the issues.
Russian council and well as some people in this forum speculate on biblical text:http://www.pravoslavie.ru/news/59248.htm
Руководствуясь заповедью Божией о хранении тварного мира (Быт. 2:15) и заботясь о духовном и физическом здоровье человека, Русская Православная Церковь считает своим долгом и далее участвовать в обсуждении вопросов экологии, а также трудиться на этом поприще в соработничестве со всеми, кто озабочен состоянием окружающей среды, думая о сохранении здоровья и нормальной жизни людей.
Obey Godly Guideline
about keeping created world (G2:15), and care about spiritual and physical well-being of man, РПЦ , respect as obligation to continue take part at ecological issues discussion , and co-working at this field with every one who concern about environmental condition, thinking about health and "normal" life of people.
let see what it is in reality:G2:15
And the Lord God took the man whom he had formed, and placed him in the garden of Delight
, to cultivate and keep it.
G3: 18 And to Adam he said: …… cursed is the earth in your labours, in pain shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life. 19 Thorns and thistles shall it bring forth to thee, and thou shalt eat the herb of the field. 20 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat thy bread until thou return to the earth out of which thou wast taken, for earth thou art and to earth thou shalt return.G3: 24
So the Lord God sent him forth out of the garden of Delight
to cultivate the ground out of which he was taken.
SO...... what way we can KEEP "Garden of Delight
) , if we was KICKED OUT OF THERE?
Shell we respect lucifer as an angel too? he was created as archangel, so shell we dispute fact of his fall just same as РПЦ dispite fakt we not in the "Garden of Delight
" any more?
Russian archbishops are so uneducated
or they never read the doduments they sign?some thing extremely ODD going on....
You may pretend no thing wrong take place.... but it is not true.
