NO, Not friends!
I believe the USA will IMPLODE & Then it will be destroyed in 1 Hr.
We have to be out of the way for the World to Attack Israel in the ways the Bible say's.
I've studied the Radical Islamic people for almost 30 yrs., THEY will NOT stop Until Your ALL DEAD!
I don't care how nice or How much money or how Much Help you give them, The whole time their Plotting ON how to Kill you!

I have been told through alot of people that USA and Russia will be at war before this world is over. How true that is, I don't know. to me it is just hearsay and that is all I can say.

The answer to your question is affirmatively NO. they are not. They may pose as such, But will align themselves with China....read Revelation...as they are preparing to ......even now.

Hi guys, I am a convert from Evangelical Protestantism to Eastern Orthodoxy. This includes the Russian Orthodox church. I plan to never look back, as I have found the faith. I believe that in doctrine Orthodoxy is closest to the church of Pentecost.

Orthodox Putin sis nt perfect; Neither is Protestant Bush

I remember the end of WWII and, of course the cold war, but I've never "hated" Russia. I also saw that the Russian people suffered much, and bravely, during that time. But I don't believe their government has suddenly become trustworthy just because the Soviets failed....nor will it, I'm sure, even as the people reclaim their Christian heritage. Political alliances (except among Muslim countries) seem to be based mostly on expediency.

Like any nation, they will be our "friend" as long as it is advantageous to them. But, under cover, they will undermine us anytime they can gain from it. We considered them an ally during WWII, but as soon as the Germans were stopped, they gobbled up most of eastern Europe and were our most feared enemy for 40 yrs of "cold war". Yes, now's the time to evangelize there while we're on "speaking" terms. But don't expect them to side with us OR Israel when the chips are down.

Russia is more of a friend than France...all you that hate russia and believe that it will bring in the end times really should read the bible, most that say Russia is the one from the north do not read the bible but read into the bible what coldwar fear preachers have told you to think. Russia is Christian (as much or more than USA) it had a bout with Athism but it is hungry for truth if we don't take the gospel to them then they will fall just like any other nation.

NO.Russia is not our friend. They have and are supplying Iraq, Iran with the means to destroy us and Isreal. Russia is the "bear" the bible refers to that will come down from the North. Read John Hagee's book Countdown Jerusalem. It will answer all.

2) cont. A photograph shows him standing beside the mosque's imam. Today in Russia, where just 20 years ago people could not admit that they were religious, the interest of the Russian people in religion is indeed a significant development.(Middle) This report about Russians turning to Islam mentions the conversion of a former rabbi.

1)Jack, this was under the rise of Islam in Russia:(Left) Crowded Eid prayers in Moscow, The growth of Islam in Russia attracts the West's interest and, from time to time, there are articles about it. In a report entitled "Moscow Courts Its Million Muslims," the BBC follows the visit of Moscow's mayor Yuriy Luzhkov to a mosque on the Ramadan Eid.

**I think Jack it depends whether you accept Siberia as being part of Russia or not. I think it is not. **

Are you saying that Siberia is an independent national state?

Try again. While it's not part of EUROPEAN Russia, it was still part of the Russian empire, with Russian cities, even as Alaska was once part of it.
---Jack on 8/4/06


**The Ukraine was never part of Russia, nor were the Baltic States, nor was Byelorussia, and all the "...istans"**

Ukraine was part of the Russian Empire before the Soviet Union, and even was called "Little Russia," as opposed to the Muscovites or "Great Russians."

So were the Baltic states and others.

The Soviet Union was not Russia.

I believe that "largest" refers to land area, even with the independence of Ukraine and Baltic States.

MimeM You say Russia is till the largest country in the world"
?????
Russia is not the largest in any respect at all, wealth (USA) area (Canada) population (China or India)

**Also, when ever was America a Christian nation? I thought this was a Democtatic republic, a 100% pagan concept.**

I'm not saying a state religion--even Christianity, and especially pop-evangelicalism--is a good thing.

The only way to have freedom of conscience and religious exercise is to extend it to ALL, even those with whom we disagree.
---Jack on 8/3/06


'Russia' is fading fast. It is still the largest country in the world, but it is fracturing. Russia for hundreds of years has been at ods with the Europs and the west. China is the next threat.

BTW-Nothing to debate, a 'state church' is a prescription for a dictatership.

The historical fact remains that before the Soviet takeover, Russia was officially an Orthodox Christian monarchy.

Whether a state church is a good thing, of course, can be debated.

Here are the religious demographics of Russia from the 2006 Edition of the CIA World FactBook:

Russian Orthodox 15-20%, Muslim 10-15%, other Christian 2% (2006 est.)
note: estimates are of practicing worshipers; Russia has large populations of non-practicing believers and non-believers, a legacy of over seven decades of Soviet rule

**With the majority of Russia being Muslim**

Dottie, where on earth did you get the idea that Russia was Muslim?

Russia has a Christian history older than the US itself, and many saints and martyrs that shown forth during the Communist ascendancy.

The Orthodox Church (which is the church that wrote the Bible) is now undergoing a restoration and revival.
---Jack on 8/1/06


Russia is not our friend, because even though the USA is going down hill spiritually, we are still considered a Christian nation. With the majority of Russia being Muslim they are a threat to us because we support Israel and they live to destroy Israel. Short answer, but accurate according their Koran. ( If we can not be converted to Islam, we are to be eliminated.)
---Dottie on 8/1/06


Their government claim reforms but there economy is miserable, the Russian Mafia is running ramped. The military are not being paid regularly. Their nuclear scientist are looking for jobs on the international market and could be picked up by terrorist groups or other nuclear power want to be nations. Their ability to control the nuclear weapon storage ares is questionable. Renegade military personal not being paid could pose a problem if they have access to weapon storage ares or launch capable assets.

Post-Soviet Russia remains "a riddle wrapped in a mystery wrapped in an enigma."

Of course, I'm very glad that since the Transfiguration Revolution, the Orthodox Church there has been free to proclaim the Gospel of Christ--and yes, that Protestants and Roman Catholics have been free to propogate what they believe, too.

As far as "Russia invading Israel", this was actually fulfilled a couple of centuries ago by the Zionists, but it's too complex for 85 words.

Some interpretations of end-times prophecy indicate that Russia will attack Israel, just before the 7 year peace treaty is enstated.
