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.

but for most people those do not count.
Everyone these days gets something wrong,
but for a few people those do not count.
The significant difference is that adherence to the love of God covers a multitude of sins.
Those who live and die at odds to God are as if they never did anything right, even though they might appear to have done many things right.
While a few who finally attain considerate attention to the Love of God are as if they never did anything wrong, even though they might appear to have done many things wrong.
There are many IF’s, AND’s, and BUT’s –
for each of us.
