OPAC Statement on The Russian Patriarch: “Does he owe his position and the lucrative benefits he receives to Vladimir Putin?

FGGAM Shares a Biblical Worldview Everyday:

“The Biblical worldview says there is a God—One who is personal, powerful and caring—who created the world and everything in it. It states unequivocally that man is created in God’s image, living in essence as God’s co-regent over creation. Mankind—born and unborn, rich and poor, able and disabled—has intrinsic worth. Almighty God is a sovereign God, ruler over nations, states, empires, and governments. He is to be worshiped and obeyed through the precepts and principles revealed in His infallible Word. He not only exists, but He is sovereign over all of history according to His wisdom and purposes, and He is intimately involved in every aspect of life.”

OPAC STATEMENT ON THE RUSSIAN PATRIARCH

The Orthodox Public Affairs Committee (OPAC) is deeply concerned that Patriarch Kirill of Russia is, contrary to his high office as a Shepherd of the Church and a religious leader to millions in both Ukraine and Russia; enabling the war by giving religious cover to this unconscionable and unjustified conflict.  Ukraine represents at least one third of the Moscow Patriarchate’s clergy and laity.  Kirill’s statements ring hollow and have the stench of direct government interference. Is this because he owes his position and the lucrative benefits he receives to Vladimir Putin? Why does he not speak out for his Ukrainian Flock? Why does he endorse the Russian military, even presenting them with a holy icon?
Orthodox Times Article )Russia is no longer an empire. It is a nation state that tried to recover from the legacy of the economic misery and humanitarian failures of the Soviet Union. Patriarch Kirill owes his allegiance to Jesus Christ, not to Vladimir Putin, an ever-increasing tsar-pretender.Whether he should be sanctioned like many other kleptocrats and oligarchs remains to be seen, but OPAC believes that for the sake of the Orthodox Church, nothing should be off the table and once again calls on Patriarch Kirill to act like the religious leader he is and decry the fratricide taking place in Ukraine.
