Lastest split within the Christian churches

 

brad johnson on february 12th 2020 I’m
00:03
gonna say I don’t understand this
00:05
subject you’re going to talk about at
00:07
all it sounds when you briefly explained
00:10
it to me a little bit like there is a
00:11
new schism in the serbian orthodox
00:14
church and that that’s going to have
00:16
consequences for the region anyway
00:18
please explain this because i just don’t
00:20
get it
00:20
yeah it’s it is i’m getting a little bit
00:23
esoteric and discussing this it’s not
00:26
going to be a subject that probably
00:28
almost anyone listening will be familiar
00:30
with but there’s a larger point to it i
00:32
want to make but in brief what’s
00:34
happened is serbian montenegro have been
00:37
where there was a country for a while
00:39
after the breakup of the former
00:41
yugoslavia this is continuing to
00:43
splinter in the different parts of it
00:45
have broken off Croatia and Serbia and
00:47
Bosnia and they’ve all come out of that
00:50
former Yugoslavia so Serbia and
00:55
Montenegro were for a time a country
00:56
they’ve they’ve separated amicably
00:59
because they traditionally have always
01:00
been separate countries kingdoms back
01:03
into history so it was a very friendly
01:05
thing but they shared a church and that
01:07
church that they shared has become known
01:09
as the serbian orthodox church i mean
01:11
they can understand each other speaking
01:13
and so on their regional neighbors
01:15
forever not enemy powers particularly
01:18
they were always kind of allied and got
01:20
along well together and the royal
01:21
families married back and forth those
01:23
sorts of things so no long term
01:25
traditional problems or anything like
01:27
that and as I said the shared church so
01:29
in many ways that shared culture
01:30
differences but also parallel things
01:33
that were similar like the church so
01:35
what has happened now the Montenegrin
01:38
government has decided now this is the
01:40
government not the church there that in
01:43
Montenegro that what they want to do is
01:46
have their own Orthodox Church so you
01:50
have now of course there’s various
01:52
Orthodox churches already there’s
01:54
Russian Orthodox they serving on with
01:56
the dogs the Greek Orthodox there’s
01:59
different Orthodox churches so what
02:01
they’ve decided to do is they want their
02:02
own figuring that that’s kind of a
02:04
nationalistic thing to back and so
02:07
they’re going forward on this and have
02:08
passed some laws to that effect trying
02:10
to get this done now
02:12
the church the priests and so on and the
02:15
bishop in Montenegro are not pushing for
02:18
this and aren’t particularly interested
02:19
they’re part of the Serbian Orthodox
02:21
structures so they’re kind of you know I
02:24
would say uncertain as to how to proceed
02:26
on this they don’t want the split but
02:28
it’s what the government’s doing now the
02:30
problem with this is fine
02:32
you want to split off your you know have
02:33
your own church and whatever priests
02:35
that are in the Serbian Orthodox Church
02:37
and Montenegro that want to go with the
02:38
new Montenegrin Orthodox or stay with
02:40
the Serbian Orthodox fine that’s up to
02:42
them but the problem is what they’re
02:44
doing what they’re planning on doing is
02:45
confiscating all church property in
02:48
Montenegro and taking it all back over
02:51
the government of Montenegro taking it
02:53
and then giving it to the what would be
02:56
the newly formed Montenegro Orthodox
02:59
Church so it’s it’s complex it’s off the
03:01
beaten path it’s out there but the
03:04
important point out of all of this is
03:05
that we see this this continuing forever
03:08
and I just very briefly going back in
03:10
history I mean the Great Schism that
03:12
people talked about was where the
03:16
catholic church and the orthodox church
03:18
split which was you know back in 1054 or
03:23
something like that i just began this
03:25
would be room and Byzantium yeah we’re
03:28
yeah they the the Catholic Church a they
03:35
they did there was the I think it was
03:38
the fight of the Econo class fight
03:40
basically icons and a number of other
03:42
issues that were observed by the
03:44
Orthodox Church were considered
03:46
blasphemy by the Catholic Church and so
03:48
they split over those things and
03:50
excommunicated each other I think I’m
03:52
not sure but if a complete split between
03:55
them and they’ve split now since then
03:57
both have continued to split and this is
04:00
the point I really want to make on the
04:02
Orthodox side the Orthodox Church then
04:05
began to split into those all of those
04:07
factions that I’ve already mentioned
04:08
like the Russian Orthodox the Serbian
04:11
Orthodox the Greek Orthodox and now
04:15
there is a further split where you saw
04:16
the Armenian the Amin Ian Church calls
04:19
itself Armenian Orthodox the Orthodox
04:21
Church does not recognize the Armenian
04:24
Orthodox Church
04:26
as Orthodox so it’s sort of its own
04:28
little thing and they split the you know
04:33
the ba-ba-boom when they so they’ve
04:36
they’ve continued to split down and
04:39
we’re seeing that once again playing out
04:40
where the Orthodox Church is splintering
04:42
off once again thus weakening the
04:45
overall structure of Christianity and on
04:49
the Catholic side you saw something very
04:51
similar a little bit later 15 early
04:53
1500s some where Martin Luther then
04:57
created Protestantism and it was the
04:59
rifle right Reformation is the term
05:01
people use for it so you saw the
05:03
creation of Protestantism splitting off
05:06
from the Catholic Church and then if you
05:08
look at that that has splintered you
05:11
know madly since then and we have all
05:13
sorts of types of Protestantism that
05:16
they born-again Christian movement and
05:18
then and the the Lutheran’s piss Kop
05:22
alien the Baptist all of these different
05:25
groups have split off from there so a
05:27
split from the Catholic Church then it
05:29
splits again and then splits again and
05:31
now we have all of these things if you
05:33
look at Christianity as a whole it is a
05:36
terribly horribly splintered
05:39
disconnected group of people that are
05:42
theoretically all Christian and there
05:44
should be some level of cooperation but
05:47
there is not the dislike and hatred and
05:49
around these things and speak in those
05:51
circles and the distrust of you know by
05:54
the Baptist for the Catholics and the
05:55
Catholics of the earth and ox and all of
05:57
these different things a representative
06:01
of this horrible split and even groups
06:03
that are out there couple that I’ve
06:05
tried to help and work with to some
06:06
degree or another that are trying to
06:09
fight back against Christians being you
06:11
know tracked down and slaughtered
06:12
overseas in some of these areas like
06:14
Syria in that region those are those
06:17
Christian groups that are still out
06:19
there which many of them are Orthodox
06:22
type groups nobody cares because they’re
06:24
a different brand of Christians so they
06:27
let them be slaughtered and this is one
06:29
of the things I’ve noticed just as kind
06:31
of a general thing here this splintering
06:33
and splintering and splintering and
06:34
splintering and there’s no cohesion
06:37
effort to stop it as I was saying one of
06:39
those groups that I’ve worked with a
06:40
little bit for example they’re working
06:42
well among the born-again Christians and
06:44
different types of Protestant groups but
06:47
they refuse to work with say the
06:49
Catholics or the Orthodox to achieve the
06:52
exact same things even though many of
06:54
the people being attacked are in fact
06:55
Orthodox because the the people that are
06:59
supporting them won’t tolerate it so
07:02
what is it when you have groups that are
07:04
out there trying to save Christians from
07:06
being tracked down and slaughtered and
07:08
the women taken away and given given you
07:10
know sold into slavery you know but they
07:13
won’t take help from another Christian
07:15
group because they don’t recognize them
07:17
as Christian or you’re not sure exactly
07:19
what the justification is for this but
07:21
this is where we find them ourselves and
07:23
this is one of the things that I’ve
07:24
noticed in my career overseas and in
07:26
these areas that this lack of cohesion
07:29
among Christians is one of the things
07:32
that’s allowing us to have different
07:34
Christians in different places just be
07:36
wiped out in slaughter and you know
07:38
we’ve had these churches burnt to the
07:41
ground in France for example and who
07:44
cares I mean it’s Catholics there so
07:46
everybody here doesn’t care and it’s the
07:48
Orthodox and issue near or in the Arabic
07:52
speaking countries where they’re getting
07:53
tracked down and slaughtered so nobody
07:55
cares because it’s these different sects
07:57
but that’s one of those things where if
07:59
you don’t kind of help each other in the
08:02
long run it only means all of us will
08:04
end up getting slaughtered so it’s one
08:06
of those things it’s a great weakness in
08:08
the West the Western Christian
08:11
judeo-christian world if you will and
08:13
certainly those those those Divine’s
08:17
with the Jewish world and the Christian
08:19
world they all exist and they don’t have
08:21
a tendency to to help each other or care
08:23
when these other groups get slaughter
08:25
and so it’s it’s our great weakness and
08:27
I question how well we’ll stand up on
08:31
the world stage with these divisions
08:33
being so important that we don’t care
08:35
that the other guy I skate killed it’s
08:37
almost as if some of the Christian
08:39
groups think it’s fine if that other
08:40
Christian groups gets slaughtered
08:41
because you know they’re not competition
08:43
anymore for us it’s an almost an
08:45
attitude of that nature so I I see it as
08:47
a great danger to us as we move forward
08:49
I mean there’s
08:50
national security items but there’s also
08:52
the human area where we need to
08:54
contribute and help each other and those
08:56
sorts of things and I get I just see
08:58
this as a breakdown that’s very
09:00
dangerous to the future of the world and
09:02
yet Justin Trudeau insists on a daily
09:05
basis that diversity is our strength I
09:07
have to say that’s the first in my new
09:10
book called Aqsa Marines of oxy Marines
09:14
of the West thank you very much
09:17
Brad Johnson I think that all of us who
09:19
follow the conquest of the west by Islam
09:22
will deeply understand and appreciate
09:25
that analysis thank you
