Metropolitan: The church has to try to build up the relationship with any power - RIA Novosti, 9/12/2017
MOSCOW, 12 Sep — RIA Novosti. Expression "any power from God" can't be treated simply, but the Church all the same has to try to build up the relationship with any government, the head of department of external church relations of the Moscow patriarchy Metropolitan of Volokolamsk Illarion has said. "If the power encourages the evil, enters the open conflict good luck, then we can't tell that this power is sent by God. But we can tell that it is a popushchena and that at this power all the same the Church has to exist, she all the same has to try to build up some relationship with this power" — the metropolitan Illarion on the presentation of the fifth book from the six-volume series "Jesus Christ has told. Life and the doctrine" in House of Books Medvedkovo. Answering a question of one of readers of whether there was the Soviet period in national history "pro-cogitative", Illarion has reminded that the apostle Pavel living in the pagan Roman Empire and injured with persecutions on Christians in the messages said that "any power from God". Bishop Tikhon Shevkunov: an appeal not to let believing in policy - a segregation "Both the apostle Pavel, and the subsequent generation of Christians perceived the existing power in the Roman Empire as the power which from God. How to understand this position? We know from the church doctrine that all that occurs in the world, is subdivided conditionally into two categories: what corresponds God's will and that there doesn't correspond the God's will, but God for some reason popuskat it" — the metropolitan Illarion has told. When some people say that "on everything Bozhiya's will", it, the hierarch, not absolutely correctly has noted. "Volya Bozhiya at all not on everything – Bozhiya's will on good … And apostles in the messages speak about that why there is a power on the earth: she exists to encourage good and to punish angrily" — Illarion has added. According to him though during almost all 70-year period of existence in the Soviet state the Church has been driven, it "never made the open sermon directed against this power with appeals to disobedience, except the very first months of existence of the Soviet power when revelry of lawlessness was especially obvious and it wasn't clear yet that this power has come for a long time.
