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.

Here are a couple photos from Poland in 1940 showing
the entrance to a Russian Old Believer hideout and the family.

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

The Church

In the copy of the Pomorsky Answers published in 1911, on page 4, we read the quote from St. John Chrysostom, “The Church is not walls and roof, but Faith and Life.”

Stranniki Types

There are two types of Stranniki Old Believers. There are the perfect Christians who live separate lives from the antichrist society at large, and then there are the beginning Christians who desire to live as perfect Christians but still presently live in some ways with society. The beginning Christians help the perfect Christians with food, clothing and other needs, while the perfect Christians lead the worship services and teach Christianity to the children of the families of the beginning Christians. There are other aspects of these relationships, but for now I will just add that should a beginning Christian have some serious illness they would be baptized. If an ill person should later recover they would be expected to live the remainder of their lives as a strong perfect Christian.

No Drivers License & No Social Secrurity Card

Many people are wise to what the governments of this world are doing with all the Identification and other tracking numbers. The Stranniki are not the only people who forsake all governmet papers, including money. There is a film called “Into the Wild” based on a true story, and in the theatrical trailer in the first link below it shows how this young man destroyed his license, social security, bank cards and money.
Or see the full movie here.

There is one other online video to mention, a supressed Disney cartoon that explains how the Nazi trained their children in death, starting by giving them an antichrist birth certificate and other government papers. Nobody I have talked to remembers this cartoon being shown at all, no doubt it was seen as being exactly like the USA.
