Smart gadgets, smart Antichrist

In a recent television interview Russian Orthodox Patriarch Kirill warned that the widespread use of electronic gadgets provides the possibility for “universal control over humanity”. The “devil acts very wisely” in offering people such toys, he said.

“Such control from one place forebodes the coming of the Antichrist,” remarked Patriarch Kirill. “The Antichrist is the person that will be at the head of the world wide web controlling all of humanity. That means that the structure itself poses a danger. There shouldn’t be a single centre if we don’t want to bring on the apocalypse.”

The Orthodox patriarch advised people should be careful not to “become slaves to what’s in your hands”.

“You should remain free inside and not fall under any addiction, not to alcohol, not to drugs, not to electronic gadgets.”

Russians Concerned for Future of Europe

Patriarch Kirill

“Whether the world has war or peace depends on the practice of this devotion (the First Saturdays), along with the consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. This is why I desire its propagation so ardently, especially because this is also the will of our dear Mother in Heaven”.

Moscow, April 28, Interfax – Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia is concerned about the future of EuropePravmir

“If the moral and value foundations of European life are revised, what does it mean to the European civilization? And at the same time, the flow of refugees, who have a foreign religion and culture. It’s a colossal challenge. And we don’t know how this challenge will be taken,” the patriarch said, in an interview with NTV television, a complete version of which will air on Sunday, for Easter.

Speaking about the development of the modern civilization, he said that “the world is going straight to hell.” “I don’t know how it will be taken now, but as a priest, I have to say honestly what I think. Because, if you destroy the moral foundation of a person, destroy his internal life, reformat, the person stops being a person,” the patriarch said.

The patriarch also spoke about the revival of faith in Russia, saying that it cannot be explained just by the efforts taken by priests.

“Here, we have a surprising combination of factors, historical, philosophical and political. And religious, of course. We have a new flock and, by God’s mercy, I believe that the face of the Russian Orthodox Church is being renewed,” he said.
