Via MSNBC: The Russian Orthodox Church has apologized for doctoring a photograph of Patriarch Kirill to remove what bloggers said was a luxury wristwatch following accusations that he lives a lavish lifestyle. The Church responded after bloggers said a 2009 photo of the Patriarch on its website showed the reflection of a Breguet watch worth about $30.000 in the polished surface of a table where his arms rested during talks. It is sensible of the Russian Orthodox Church to apologize, but unnecessary since the Patriarch had received the luxury watch as a gift, and honored the giver by wearing it. Furthermore, we should remember that one important difference between Orthodox Christianity on the one hand, and Catholicism and Protestantism on the other hand, is that wealth not is regarded as something negative by Orthodox Christianity. Poverty is un-Christian and should be avoided, because abundancy and material wealth is in line with the gospel of Christ.

Front National's candidate Marine Le Pen gives 51 times the money if she wins the first presidential election round on Sunday.

In the Bible - Exodus 25:10 - the Lord commands Moses to build the Ark of the Covenant as a Golden Rectangle, and in Exodus 27:1-2 God likewise commands Moses to build the Altar on the same 5 by 3 theme.

The Russian Orthodox Church has released a strong-worded statement on Tuesday claiming it is under attack by strong oppositional forces that do not support the Church's backing of President-elect Vladimir Putin, according to The Christian Post. Vladimir Putin took a brave decision and made the Russian Orthodox Church the official Church of Russia. Putin effectively shows the time for liberal politics and rigid religions is over. Now we have the better alternative - liberal religion - which is Christian Orthodoxy, perfectly working as a state religion. But it disturbs me as a Greek Orthodox that there is so much anti-Semitism in the Orthodox Church. We should not give offence, neither to Jews, Greeks, nor to the Church, according to 1 Corinthians 10:32. God does not take back His gifts, according to Romans 11:29. One of those gifts is that the Jewish people is elect, as much as the Christian nation. As a monk on Mount Athos, I was very surprised the Old Testament Septuagint could not be found or bought in the bookstores at the capital city Karyes. The first Christians did not put the Old Testament aside, and neither should we. The old traditions of the Church and the first Christians are as important as the Bible. The Apostles and first Christians used the Greek Septuagint and the Book of Enoch, and so should we, along with the Greek New Testament, of course. "There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus", see Galatians 3:28.
