The orthodox Church is the only major religion that has not been hijacked by globalism. While Pope Francis goes around meeting Emoms and other religious leaders, pushing anti godly policies; the orthodox stands firm.
Even an attempt this year the Pope met with Krill, sure they had a message of hope, but no back room deals. I believe it will be the orthodox Church that leads us through the New World religion, as the Evil Christian orthodox.

This is happening all over the world to Orthodox churches! Happened here in the USA to the Serbian Orthodox Cathedral in New York City on Easter. Gutted the interior. And happened in Kosovo & Bosna, since the last decades when the Clinton Administration bombed Beograd & hundreds of ancient churches burned, sacked & desecrated altars all over Kosovo. With NOT a word of notice from the American press to alert the American people to what is going on with Orthodox Christianity! DISGRACEFUL! Some news outlet somewhere must alert the American people! They have no idea the degree of persecution taking place against the Orthodox religion!
