The Stranniki (Russian for Runaways or Wanderers) are the strong Pomorsky Old Believers who rejected prayers for Tsar Peter and all government papers (identification, passports, money, etc). They would not wear clothing contrary to Old Orthodox Russia, nor eat with those of contrary Faith and Practice. Keeping themselves separate from the antichrist society they went far into the Siberian wilderness. This blog is about these people and my effort to conform my life to theirs.

Good Health To Everyone!

The Epistle to the Ephesians at 5:16 explains to us that “the days are evil” and even at the time of the Lord Jesus Christ we had a “faithless and perverse generation” as we see in the Holy Gospel’s of Matthew and Luke. The ways of men only get “worse and worse” says the 2nd Epistle to Timothy at 3:13. So I do not go around saying good morning, good evening or good day. I would rather follow the example of the strong Old Believers and greet others with “Good heath to you” or some other more realistic and honest statement that pertains to eternity, like our spiritual heath and our salvation. It is true that all man-made electronics, such as computers that view this page, indiscriminately kill and harm people. Ever since the industrial age all the air, all the water and all the food has become more and more poisonous. So hoping for good health is practically a bad a joke these days. May the Lord some how have mercy on us and heal us. If that is to happen we have a responsibility to runaway and truly repent from all the evil, wicked and devilish things such as computer use. Forgive, brother John
