Russia’s New President & the Orthodox Church

Dmitry Anatolyevich Medvedev


Dmitry Anatolyevich Medvedev is the new president of Russia.  He had the backing of former president Putin as well as the Russian Orthodox Church.

What is of interest to me, at least, is that he was baptized into the Orthodox Church at age 23 (he was born in 1965). 

The Orthodox endorse infant baptism, normally, but in Dmitry Medvedev’s case, he was not baptized until after the fall of communism in the old Soviet Union.

It remains to be seen how the Russian Orthodox Church will work with him.  But this is the second Russian President in a row that is publicly one of its members.  And the Bible does show that Russia will play a role in prophesied end-time events.
