Father's Covenant to the Orthodox Russian Warrior

Father's Covenant to the Orthodox Russian WarriorIf God will lead you, my son, to be a soldier, then live there like God: keep yourself in such a way that even in a small way you do not get angry with God. First of all, serve the great sovereign with faith and truth, in battle be firm, fearless, stand courageously against enemies, do not let yourself in the hands: fight bravely while you are standing on your feet. Most of all, fear treason, lest you be under a curse and perish forever: it is better to die than to change. And if you are captured, sleepy or wounded, then by no means tell the enemy that we suffer from lack of food or supplies from the military; Say: "We are all satisfied, we have nothing in poverty." And if you began to torture you, do not say a word about the shortcomings of your army, accept death, but do not declare the defect to the enemy: then you will be accepted to the holy martyrs. If they ask you: how many people do you have in the ranks, say: "I only know how much we have porridge, and how many of us are in the army, I have nothing to know, because I'm just a soldier." Say about your comrades: "In battle, they are all brave, all the old soldiers, experienced, and our brethren - beginners - a little typed." And if you leave them in your regiments, then all that they have seen in good order, secretly declare to your boss, and do not tell your comrades that the enemies are strong and abundant to everyone.


Be you, my son, to God and the great sovereign, faithful servant, be pleased with your salary. And if a certain salary is not enough for you, then do some handicraft to get yourself something with honest work, and do not interfere in any wrongful matter, do not offend anyone, take nothing away from anyone, and wrong Fear of acquisitions more than fire, so that God may not anger you, and you will not destroy your soul for the untruth. If you stand in an apartment with someone, you cannot be the master of the house in which to oppress: be a servant to him, not a lord; although you are great to the tsar and to the king and great to him, however, be gentle in everything and obedient to him, do not cause any annoyance, always speak lovingly and affectionately with him: he will sometimes spare his last penny , but you will begin to restrain him, but to survive from the hut, and he will cry out to God from the sorrow of his heart, and God seeing his grief, for this he will send you even greater sorrow to the Lord for me; you will not lose your honor by doing peacefully and lovingly with the owner of your apartment. Know, my son: where love is, here and God dwells, and where there is enmity and annoyance, there the devil happens. Judge for yourself: is it better to live with God or with the devil? And if you want to be with God, be meek like a sheep. And if you are a lodger gentle and loving, and if at the same time you are doing a small service, then you will be nice to every man: and for such a kind visit you will be happy as your own, and you will be at ease as your own. Soldiers do not annoy the people so much as insults and arrogance and bold actions.

And you, my son, for God's sake, do not be bold, but be worthy with every man. From that you will not be brave in war, if you offend your own Orthodox Christians. Many at home hold themselves bravely, but in a war for others they hide, who is humble at home, he is a brave man in battle. I knew one soldier well: he was so mild that everyone called him chicken, it was impossible to call him a soldier; and under Chigirin, a dozen, two or three Turks hacked to death with his own hands. And if one looked at him, no one would have believed: the growth of a small, lean face, moreover, he was also stooping, and he was already not young; and by humility and courtesy it is not soon possible to pick up another such one. For this meekness, God sent him his help, so that his comrades could not marvel at his courage.

So you, my son, do not look at evil mischievous people: between yours be tender and kind, but in a battle against the enemy be angry and fearless; at home be a gentle lamb, and in the swearing field a lion, terrible for the enemy. But in war with comrades, be charitable, and with all, both military and artisans, and with merchants, be kind enough to be afraid most of all so as not to offend anyone, do not lie to anyone. The Holy Gospel gives such commandments to the soldiers: do not offend anyone, do not slander, and be content with your salary (Lk.3; 14). And it is only for these three virtues or commandments that the soldiers are promised salvation, more so if you attach fasting and prayer to them, and abstention from fornication, because in battle the cleanliness is more than the shield of the copper, and in civilian life cleanliness is a great good. The Israelites were invincible in battle, so their enemies purposely sent their wives and girls to them, so that they could sin with them so that God would allow them to defeat the Israelites for fornication. You see, my son, from old times even the infidels knew that cleanliness in battle is more precious than a shield, and fornication - death. One Greek warrior is told that when he went to war against the Bulgarians, on the way he happened to spend the night with one person; at night the maiden came to him and began to incite sin. But he resisted, and drove her away from himself three times. Then he fell asleep and sees a field for him: and in that field he sees the beaten Greeks, the whole field was covered with corpses, and between them he saw the empty place, as one person could lie down: and he would be told: place; but because you fought the serpent three times, you will not be killed. " This is how, my son, the purity of the body keeps a person in battle; and if the will of God be done, and a pure man is killed, he will be consented to the holy martyrs.

And he who lives the fornication, remains in all sorts of untruths, he suffered, even for faith, however, God alone knows whether he will receive a reward for that. But fear my son the sin of sin. And even if there was no war, you confess twice a year and commune of the Holy Mysteries. And in wartime, in all four posts, go and take Communion, and be ready to die every day. A warrior needs a hundred times more than a monk to keep himself from all sin, as if someone does not obi chet and live clean, because he must always be ready for death. If you see that the enemy is chasing your officer, or comrade, or someone else, then at least this person and the evil that you have done to you in every way possible try to save him from the trouble. And if you succeed in saving him, you cannot boast that you did not spare yourself and saved your enemy from death: let only God and your conscience know this, because it is a great thing to remember no evil; The Lord commands: love your enemies ... do good to those who hate you (Matt. 5; 44). And whoever does this will be called the Son of God. And if you, my son, helping out your foe, will be killed by yourself, then I cannot say how God will magnify you in this Kingdom and will glorify him with eternal glory. The Lord said: There is no more of that love, as if someone laid down his soul for his friends (John. 15; 13), and more if he put his soul for the enemy!

In military affairs, your commanders, both older and younger, be obedient to everything; have a gun in good condition, keep the powder in a dry place; Do not waste your charges so that the sovereign’s treasury does not disappear in vain, and learn to shoot at the target: do not miss a single week, so that even if you don’t shoot at the target. Then you and one will serve for ten. Yes, look, my son, do not carry with you any conspiracies. If you have them with you, you will offend God with those: after all, they will be with you instead of God, and if they kill you with them, then your blood and soul will die for nothing. And if poverty is tolerated, do not take anything away from others by force: it’s better to feed on the name of Christ or hire from your brethren and do not take anything away from anyone: God save you from this! Remember: you cannot destroy your soul with soldiers, but you destroy with evil deeds. If you will be in the spiritual rite, but you will not part with evil deeds, then you will perish; and being a soldier, if you live according to God, you will be saved, you will inherit eternal life.

    All right, in the days of the USSR, as it seems to me, it sounded like this:
    "I, a citizen of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, joining the ranks of the Armed Forces, I take the oath and solemnly swear to be an honest, brave, disciplined, vigilant warrior, strictly keep military and state secrets, and unquestioningly fulfill all military regulations and orders of commanders and chiefs. I swear. conscientiously study military affairs, protect military and national property in every possible way and be loyal to my People, my Soviet Motherland and the Soviet Government until my last breath.I am always ready, by order of the Soviet Government, to defend my Motherland - the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and, as a warrior of the Armed Forces , I swear to defend her courageously, skillfully, with dignity and honor, not sparing my blood and life itself to achieve complete victory over enemies.If I break this solemn oath of mine, then let me be comprehended by the severe punishment of Soviet law, universal hatred and contempt comrades.

      And in the days of the Russian Empire, the text of the oath sounded like this:

      I promise and swear by Almighty God, before His Holy Gospel, that I want and owe to His Imperial Majesty the Autocratic All-Russian and His Imperial Majesty the All-Russian Throne, it is faithful and unprincipled to serve the Heir, not sparing his belly, to the last drop of blood and all to His High Imperial Majesty For autocracy, power and authority own rights and advantages, legitimized and henceforth legalized, at the very least, power and ability to fulfill.

      His Imperial Majesty the state and lands of his enemies, body and blood, in the field and fortresses, by water and by dry means, in battles, parties, sieges and assaults and in other military cases, brave and strong to mend resistance and try to make progress in everything that is to His Imperial In any case, the service and benefit of the state may concern Majesty.

      As soon as I tell you about the damage of His Imperial Majesty’s interest, harm and loss, I’ll not declare it in good time, but with all sorts of measures I will repel and prevent slipping and I will keep all entrusted secrecy, it will relate to the good and service of the state, properly repairing obedience and, in all conscience, correcting and for its own gain, property and friendship and hostility against service and oath not to come from the team and banner, where I belong, although in the field, wagon train or gar nizone, never go away, but I will follow him while I’m alive and I will behave this way and act like an honest, loyal, obedient, brave and quick officer (soldier). In what may the Lord God Almighty help me.

      In conclusion of this oath, I kiss the words and cross of my Savior. Amen.

      Meehan !!! Despite the disadvantages - I will support. The article is correct. These words were not only spoken by Orthodox believers. The Ross were aware of this, despite their pagan origins. We absorbed it all from our roots. So there can be no question of guile. And we also know that there is no smell more pleasant than the smell of a rotting enemy. So just read Kuprin. And especially his "Briget". There about us ... About the Russians ...

        I hope that if FC Skiff reads and reflects on this more, he will understand why the seeming delirium is not delirium at all.
        After all, Russians are meek compared to the same pin_dos_ with their NATO.
        The main thing is not to confuse meekness with lack of will.

          Church-? Yes, he doesn’t do anything, with rare exceptions.

          What should the "church" do? Come home, take it by the scruff of the neck and drag it somewhere? Orthodoxy is not imposed on anyone, a person is given the right to choose!
          Parents for what? Why did Yevgeny Rodionov's mother bring up a worthy son, whose feat will inspire millions of soldiers, and someone whines that "the church is to blame," "Putin is to blame," "the laws do not work"? Let's whine - "the knife itself does not bounce on the table and does not cut bread"!
          Who is to blame for the fact that someone is sitting on the stove and waiting until they begin to defend his rights, which he himself must defend by filing a statement of claim in court? Who is to blame for the fact that his children grow up like weeds in the field - he brought them from the hospital, put them in front of the zombie box, seven years later sent them to school - "maybe they will teach them something," and then, after 15-17 years of complete lack of upbringing (growing and getting to his feet is not upbringing) - "And someone else's injections ?? And someone else's he smokes ??"
          Ask yourself - what did you put in your child’s head? But nothing. He puts a street in his head and a TV.
          And one could ask the church when Orthodoxy was a state ideology, and not after the churches were blown up, priests were shot, and the patriarch was replaced with the one who was a cell-man of a Catholic!


          But the Trekhlebovs, Istarkhovs and Bohumilas the Second flooded the entire information space. Now the youth is not going to church, but to Bohumil, reading not the works of the holy fathers, not Paisius Svyatogorets, Seraphim of Sarov and John Chrysostom, who taught kindness, mercy, generosity, courage, but Istarkhov, who, clearly commissioned by Brzezinski’s close ones, teaches how to fight with Orthodoxy to undermine the spiritual foundation of Russia.

          Children do not grow on trees, do not fall from the sky. Why should not those who raise them begin to educate them? They put clothes on, and forget to put the correct settings into the head. And adult people give birth to children, who can understand what stokes TV, the Internet and the street, and can protect them from negative information and invest positive.
          And do not blame the uncle who did not raise your child.

    In recent decades, too many and sophisticated sneers at such concepts as honor, loyalty, patriotism. And by his act, I think, Yevgeny Rodionov spat in the face of those who live according to the principle "die today, and I will die tomorrow."

        Evgeny Rodionov was killed in captivity on 23 on May 1996. Ruslan Khaikhoroyev admitted to the murder. In the presence of a foreign representative of the OSCE, he said: “... He had a choice to stay alive. He could change the faith, but he did not want to remove the cross from himself. I tried to escape ... ”[8]. On May 23, after 100 days of captivity and cruel torture, Yevgeny Rodionov and his colleagues were asked to remove the pectoral cross and convert to Islam. Evgeny Rodionov refused to remove the cross, for which he was beheaded.

And then, I see, love to admire military merits and heroes, but you don’t know that Orthodoxy is a state-forming religion, and that it was inspired by many of the exploits of our wars, raising the morale of the soldier, being his spiritual and moral core.

                    I will not argue with you. You do not understand what a spiritual core is. It’s just for people like you that they make the patriarch ... not that person, focusing on his expensive watch and some of his words, to judge all of Orthodoxy, which has a hundred times more history than when you were on the throne of the present patriarch and retreated from the faith. To understand this, you need, at a minimum, not to have persistent hatred of the subject of study, obscuring the mind and not allowing you to consider the issue without peels imposed from the outside in the form of a watch and appearance that you are constantly distracted by.
                    About the "cross on the belly" .. Again, external attributes. You don't know what was in the soul and in the head of the person.
                    And Evgeny Rodionov, with a cross on his chest, and not a hero already?
                    As for the one who was defended, please read the oath of the times of the Russian Empire. They swore allegiance to the Tsar. The motto "For Faith, Tsar and Fatherland" is probably also empty words for you. And you don't know about the capture of Ishmael ..

                    It’s not about Orthodoxy, but the fact that all your knowledge about a thousand-year history has been crossed out, or rather, replaced by one hour and one phrase. And you didn't even ask about the personality of this person - "maybe he is not who he claims to be?" Of course, but why? In the same place, it is also necessary to read and analyze a biography, but it is much more convenient to fall into a stupor from the appearance and one phrase.

        FAITH and Christianity are not the same thing!

        Eco You my friend ....The tradition of trust clearly nourishes faith, but it also presupposes other shades of this phenomenon, which are reflected in many words and concepts of our language, our speech. For example, words and phrases: to believe, trust, hand, entrust, vest with confidence; confidential, confidential; gullible, gullible, holy simplicity, etc. are etymologically related, but at the same time they illustrate the variety of ordinary (everyday) shades of the fundamental meaning of the word faith. The peculiarity of understanding this variety of words concerns two, in essence, simple conditions. Firstly, faith implies our trust in another person, testifying about the world of “invisible things” and, secondly, trustfulness appears as a completely definite act that determines the direction of the action, behind which there is a tradition of trusting other people on similar issues with us .

        Of course, you can think a lot about the ordinary characteristics and semantic interweaving of the words in question. However, it is important to consider that understanding the true essence of faith is associated with turning to the deity, to God, and the manifestation in a person of such an internal necessity of turning to God is itself a manifestation of consciousness (at first, possibly obscured). Thus, from the ordinary understanding of the meaning of faith, we naturally proceed to the consideration of religious faith.

        The disclosure of the essence of religious faith presupposes the refinement of some characteristics of the concept of faith in connection with the consideration of the whole complex of problems of philosophical (and epistemological) significance related to the cultural and historical context of the formation of faith as an increase in the meaningful relationship of man to God. And if the experience of faith is always a purely personal, almost intimate experience, then the study of the formation of faith, finding out everything that is included in this feeling or what is behind this concept, implies a broader, philosophical view of the problem.

      And everything seems to me extremely simple for a Russian soldier such as E. Rodionov (by the way, there were a lot of people before the revolution, morals were high), Russian faith and duty to the Motherland are equally valuable and it is impossible to change the oath to the Orthodox spirit (beliefs, if you will) otherwise it’s already not you as they say because you betrayed both faith and patronymic and yourself.
      E. Rodionov was not like the saying: "He was a faithful standard-bearer and was not distracted by anything, even by changing the colors on the cloth" - this is not about him.

    Why is the cross that you hated so much? After Evgeny Rodionov, it is clearly stated that he did not refuse faith, the Orthodox faith! And for all of us, he is undoubtedly a hero! And believe me, this was not an isolated case in Chechnya! I personally knew two of these guys !!! Our scouts then told us how these of our comrades died. A video of the bearded was seen. Death is creepy! It would be scary for a rookie to watch such a thing. Yes, and we have already fought hard to bear it ... And the soldiers were tortured precisely because they did not abandon the Orthodox faith!

        do you get the point? Your words: "And those who do not wear crosses, but whom the spirits tortured, are not heroes for you?" For me, all heroes who fight and die for the Motherland! And Evgeny Rodionov is a strong man, I agree with you. But you apparently did not understand why he died. He died because he did not betray the Orthodox faith! Do you understand this at least, or you absolutely do not want to admit it? And here are your words: "Remember the dashing 90s, All the lads with crosses on the floor of the belly!" But to look at them in the situation in which Yevgeny Rodionov found himself. Yes, they will take off the cross and give up everything, just to save the skin. It's just that someone hangs a cross on himself, because it suddenly became fashionable for someone. And do not confuse the concept! And Evgeny Rodionov died precisely because of his refusal to remove the cross and convert to Islam! Do you understand now?

    It is strange to see the cons of this article.
    The will was made at the beginning of the XVIII (1719) century and suddenly such a reaction! Can I disagree with him here? It was a completely different era with a different worldview, with a different meaning of life, with a different lifestyle. It turns out that they put the minuses of our history!

    POSOSHKOV Ivan Tikhonovich (1652-1726) - economist, public figure.

    Born in the village of Pokrovskoye, near Moscow. I.T. Pososhkov by origin - Moscow peasant, but his father and grandfather were engaged in craft.

    Interests I.T. Pososhkova is very wide: he was engaged in weapons business, invention, had distilleries. He became a merchant and entrepreneur, was an energetic business executive and public figure. He wrote deep economic and philosophical works “The Book of Poverty and Wealth”, “The Mirror of the Obvious”, “The Fatherly Testament”, “The Letter on the Money Case”, “On Military Behavior”, and “Report on Newly Starting Money”. In his writings, he acted as the ideologist of the emerging bourgeoisie of the era of the Petrine reforms. But the main specialty of I.T. Pososhkova - money business.

    Pososhkov lived and worked in the era of the Petrine reforms at the turn of the XVII — XVIII centuries. The Book of Poverty and Wealth (1724, ed. 1842) is Pososhkov's main economic work. It contains many ideas that were original and pioneering not only for that period, but also a hundred years later, when the scientific community was able to get acquainted with this work. Moreover, many ideas remain relevant for our time, and scientific approaches are included in the tools of institutional and neo-institutional directions in economic theory.
    Pososhkov was a sincere supporter of the reforms carried out by Peter I, just like the emperor, he saw the vices of the traditional structure of Russian society, did not subservient to hoary antiquity and proposed "the most drastic measures for the extermination of old evil." But unlike his contemporaries, Pososhkov was looking for the deep-seated causes of his current disorder and ways of reforming Russian society and the economy. A number of economic issues and problems were raised and discussed by contemporaries of Pososhkov, but he was the first to present them in the form of an integral system and a voluminous scientific treatise.
    Pososhkov wrote his book a year before the death of Peter I. Immediately after the death of Peter, Pososhkov was thrown into prison as a freethinker, where he died the following year.

    Evgeny Rodionov is a real hero! And he did not act out of fear of God or loyalty to the current "sovereign".
    He fought for his FAMILY, MOTHERLAND, and not for God or the commander-in-chief!
    And the priests were promoting the heroic death of a RUSSIAN guy!


    And do you know much about this man and his death?

    Evgeny Rodionov was killed in captivity on 23 on May 1996. Ruslan Khaikhoroyev admitted to the murder. In the presence of a foreign representative of the OSCE, he said: “... He had a choice to stay alive. He could change the faith, but he did not want to remove the cross from himself. I tried to escape ... ”[8]. On May 23, after 100 days of captivity and cruel torture, Yevgeny Rodionov and his colleagues were asked to remove the pectoral cross and convert to Islam. Evgeny Rodionov refused to remove the cross, for which he was beheaded.

    By the way, in 2003 a year in the Russian Orthodox Church they tried to canonize him (this was 4 years after his death, but it’s clear that in 99x the liberal mass media avoided the heroes ((well, Eugene didn’t fit into the created image of a Russian soldier in Chechnya: snotty slobbering, calling his mother, and ready to raise his hands before the first bearded man he met)), the initiator of this step was the chairman of the Committee for the Moral Revival of the Fatherland, priest of the Church of St. Nicholas in Pyzhi Archpriest Alexander Shargunov.
    However, father Alexander was late with his offer of a year or so for three or four. Then, in 2003, Kadyrov Sr. already reigned supreme in Chechnya, and the canonization of Yevgeny Rodionov, tortured by his comrades in the first Chechen one, was, as they say, “off topic”. And therefore, at the beginning of the 2004 of the year, the Synodal Commission for the Canonization of the Russian Orthodox Church refused to be counted as a saint because of the lack of reliable information about the death of a martyr in the church sense and that Rodionov led a conscious church life.

    In general, earlier our priests had to move - a year ago, in 1999 – 2000, “reliable information about the martyrdom” could still be found.
    But the people can’t cover their eyes and ears, and therefore the icons with Eugene appeared in the temples spontaneously.
    Who a year later began to simply cover them up with other icons in churches, not to say that the people would be bored by uncanonized saints, and this is intolerant towards "friendly" Chechnya.
    Moreover, as the newspaper Our Version on the Neva reports: “High officials appearing in churches strongly recommend removing the icon or hanging it with other images, since the active glorification of a politically incorrect saint impedes the international friendship of the Russian Orthodox Church with the Chechen people” (“Soldier-martyr Evgeny Rodionov is expelled from temples ”) (No. 19 (127), 24-30.05.2010).

    But this is a big digression.
    The covenant is good and wise. To him who fulfills his strength, patience, and will.

      Yes, of course, we got "... as always". The Monk Seraphim of Sarov was also canonized with difficulty. But here's what's interesting:

      The Internet community “The Orthodox Charter in its entirety” announces the publication of a new edition of the military requiem on the website of the North American Conference of canonical Orthodox bishops. This funeral service is recommended to the Orthodox chaplains of the United States Army to commemorate the fallen soldiers on the Feast of the Beheading of John the Baptist and Dimitri’s Saturday.

      In the text of the release of the new edition of the service, in contrast to the ordinance familiar to Russian believers, there are many saints, most often martyr soldiers, both ancient and new (without a specific sequence according to the ranks of the saints or the chronology of their exploits). The last in this list is the “new martyr Evgeny Voin” - Evgeny Rodionov, an ordinary Russian army who died in Chechen captivity refusing to convert to Islam and remove the pectoral cross.

      The veneration of the martyr Eugene is growing every year. The icons of the martyr Eugene Warrior are already in Greek and Serbian temples. Now they began to appear and in Orthodox churches of American military bases.

      According to the Russian tradition, the canonization of saints takes place no earlier than 50 years after the death of the celebrated, so Kadyrovism has nothing to do with it, and no one forbids home veneration. On the contrary, the more veneration among the people, the sooner they will be glorified.

      "Until the generation of these 'historians' dies out."
      History was being rewritten under Lomonosov. The Germans copied. Some traveled to countries and attributed to us, Russians, other people's customs. Like that we are unwashed, ill-mannered, hungry, wild .. We, who went to the bath every Friday, invented lye and hunted in endless forests. This is when the French shit on the street, threw garbage into ditches near houses, invented perfumes so that the "scent" from them was not felt and pulled fleas out of their hair.
      Our history after 1917 has been well "rubbed".
      I agree that it is necessary to raise children in the Russian Spirit. Examples of heroism, thank God, are enough. Well, one must begin with respect and reverence for the fathers, grandfathers and great-grandfathers of the child.
      And you can try to understand history by analyzing and searching for the logical meaning of events, and not just blindly trusting what is written.

    Soldier commandment

    If you are draft boards
    Can't get past
    And serve you as a soldier
    Do not rush, brother, to grieve.

    Do not go into the eyes of the authorities,
    Do not blow your cheeks in the ranks,
    From the nurse, from the kitchen
    Never fall behind.


    If the situation is not clear
    Commander scratches turnip,
    Go to bed to sleep,
    And do not shame the uniform.

    If orders pour in,
    “Advance” and “Retreat”,
    Do not rush to do everything at once,
    We must wait a little.


    At a post in the "hot spot"
    Be on the alert, do not yawn,
    Do not believe a bush, not a bump,
    Shoot everything that moves.

    Attacking the house of the enemy
    Do not run a durik,
    Take your time, get a bullet

      Not for Faith, not for the King. For those people whom you love and value. They are Your Homeland. There is no other. Do not be afraid and do not bend. You will be like everyone else, just a man. The main thing is not to forget that this is not a punishment. This is trust, so that they live in peace, hoping for you ..

      To paraphrase a well-known saying - it is not nationality that colors a person, but people that color (glorify) their nationality.

            The informer and scammer Bychkov once again lost the court.

            "Mr. Bychkov's articles are more like a stream of not very healthy consciousness than a deliberate defamation. Professional defamators still do not compose their texts solely from delusional fabrications, as this journalist does, who is not able to even approximately reproduce the title of the criticized book and the position of its author ", - said R.

            He also stressed that "tobacco-vodka scandals, intrigues in the Holy Synod and the diseases of its permanent members exist only in the inflamed imagination of Mr. Bychkov".

    Tips of captain Kulchytsky
    V.M. Kulchitsky
    The work of captain V.M. Kulchitsky's "Advice to a Young Officer" in just the years from 1915 to 1917 went through six editions. The seventh was interrupted by the events of October seventeenth.
    “Advice to a young officer,” wrote their author, “is equally useful for those in the front lines and in the rear of the army. Their goal is a desire to prevent inexperienced military youth from making a false, destructive step. Here are collected old, but eternal truths, which are forgotten by the majority, and are unknown to young officers. "
    BASIS AND ESSENCE OF MILITARY SERVICE

    Believe in God, be loyal to the Sovereign Emperor, his family and love the Motherland.
    The first and main commandment and duty of a soldier is loyalty to the Sovereign Emperor and the Fatherland. Without this quality, he is not suitable for military service.
    The integrity of the Empire and the maintenance of its prestige are based on the strength of the army and navy; their quality and shortcomings respond throughout the country, so it is not your business to get involved in social issues and political intelligence; your job is to steadily fulfill your duties.
    Put above all the glory of the Russian army.
    Be brave. But courage is true and feigned. The arrogance inherent in youth is not courage. The military should always be prudent and ponder his actions calmly and carefully. If you are sharp and arrogant, everyone will hate you.
    Obey discipline.
    Respect your superiors and trust him.
    Be afraid to break your duty - this will forever lose your good name.
    The officer must be faithful and truthful. Without these qualities, it is almost impossible for a military to remain in the army. Veren - a man doing his duty; truthful - if he does not change his word. Therefore, never promise if you are not sure that you will fulfill the promise.
    Be polite and modest in dealing with all people.
    The best part of courage is caution.
    etc.

    Foggy! What period? In what years did it become both regular and numerous?
    It must be understood that the author was, first and foremost, an entrepreneur, built distilleries (he drove vodka). He did not serve in the army. This work is moral, reflecting the internal ideas of the author. One can consider, like those works of the early, before, and later, after the author, writers on the ideal, rather than real, structure of society, for example. The composition does not belong to the practical fulfillment of military duties, it is only literary work. These are all dreams of an ideal world order, of an ideal Russian soldier, etc.

    faith can be treated differently ...
    but, seeing the picture at the beginning of the article, for some reason a desire arises - nothing to do with this faith. Generally. Because the first thought is not about God, not about faith - but about that nonsense, which is called by the imported word "PR". I would even say dirty PR.

    Perhaps, in the times of Suvorov or Kutuzov, everything was different, perhaps then they really went into battle "for the faith, for the king." But faith was different then.

    Our grandfathers, because they did not need this very faith in this very God. It’s not that everyone was an ideological atheist, rather the opposite, but they fought for their homeland. The one that is Mother. Also in the rear - in the name of their children and mothers for days at the machines stood on a sparse rear rations. And not in the name of God.
    The Germans, who came to destroy our people, they had it, Gott mit uns. And many of them, too, seriously believed that they were going for a just cause. And it doesn’t matter whether they are Orthodox there, or crooked Orthodox. God, one at all, just different priests.
    And after all grandfathers reached Berlin, having trampled along the way into the mud of these, with whom God. And they left signatures on the ruins of the Reichstag - it's just that hardly among those signatures were words for the glory of God.


    Now what? What is Vera now, where does she come from? Priests who really stand up for the faith, for the salvation of the soul are a rare endangered species that has survived somewhere in remote villages. And even then not in all. The rest pass safely under the article "submit to the temple of God." Which temple to God, if it has any relation, is very conditional. Churches, one more magnificent than the other, but as a person on his last journey, to a meeting with God - so spare some money. How to christen a child - again, money in advance. And then what for God such souls, for which it is not rallied. Not to God - not paid to intermediaries.

    Returning to the caricature (I’m not afraid of this word) by Yevgeny Rodionov, whom the author illustrated his article:
    In early 2004, the Synodal Commission for the Canonization of the Russian Orthodox Church refused to canonize due to the lack of reliable information about the death of a martyr in the church sense, and that Rodionov led a conscious church life (C)
    Translated into Russian - the courage and courage of a guy who did not break down and did not betray - for the clergy, as it were, is not an argument at all. It’s not enough to die for the Motherland — one must die for God, and not anyhow, but martyrly. Plus, it’s also righteous to live before that - observe the posts there, go to church and put candles in the right places. And only in this case they recognize him as a hero.

    And here it is, so to speak, faith, it is proposed to invest in the minds of sons, defenders of the motherland.

    Ugh.

      My grandfather didn’t get to Berlin. He was seriously injured, the Kursk Bulge. He believed in God until his death. In 1941-42, do you think ordinary village guys were atheists? Many of them died in the fields (and mothers prayed for them at home in the villages) and they didn’t see Berlin. They didn’t fight, do you think? The religious aspect was hushed up. Still, the collective farmer did not win the war yet, but the Russian peasant with the Orthodox faith from his fathers and mothers.

    Great message, sorry to see it for the first time. I also really like "Vladimir Monomakh's Message to Children" - the wisdom of our ancestors - warriors. "Do not be afraid of the beast or war, my children, and do a man's work, as God sends."
    Everything about the case is written in Pososhkov’s will, the soldier’s conscience must be clear, so that the head works clearly and the body works on the machine. I do not understand people who are minus the article. Is the call to flee betrayal, fornication, theft, disobedience can harm the warrior?
    In general, it is necessary for an Orthodox soldier to issue a memo to reinforce the service in tagots. First of all, I would advise everyone to consecrate weapons, psalm 90 so that they "fly off the teeth", and before using the weapon to cross the flag.
    God bless the Orthodox army!
