Russian Sect Worships Putin

An all-female religious sect has sprung up in Russia with a rather unusual belief that Vladimir Putin is actually Paul the Apostle. I can see why. I mean, just look at him all macho and shirtless. Surely you agree (heck the guy's even met Reagan!):

"According to the Bible, Paul the Apostle was a military commander at first and an evil persecutor of Christians before he started spreading the Christian gospel," the sect's founder, who styles herself Mother Fotina, said.

"In his days in the KGB, Putin also did some rather unrighteous things. But once he became president, he was imbued with the Holy Spirit, and just like the apostle, he started wisely leading his flock. It is hard for him now but he is fulfilling his heroic deed as an apostle."

The story of Saul, whether true or not, is representative of the principle of penance. That, at any time, any one of us could wake up and change our course.

I don't know if Putin fits that mold, but for me to assume that he doesn't would be an injustice to my own soul.

Sandyra- no, that was Matthew.

Saul of Tarsus was a very learned man, but there's no evidence he was ever in the military. Before he chose the name of Paul and became a devout Christian, though, he did indeed assist in the arrest and murder of many believers. Maybe that's where they got the idea- kind of a slim connection, though.

I do, however, have no Scriptural support for the idea that Paul was hot. ;) And even less for the idea that the Bible tells when the world is going to end....
