Church is apolitical

The Church cannot be a party

Now the Church is in fact 'apolitical' — in this sense, that it can never identify its eternal values with any relative or contingent tasks, or any historical institutions (as was once the case in Russia, where only the party supporting unrestricted autocracy counted as truly Orthodox). The Church cannot be a party; it must be the conscince of a society, never using humility as an excuse for compromise or indifferentism. But it cannot go along with the secularist disintegration of social order; rather must its spiritual domination struggle towards victory from within. This was the ideal of a 'free theocracy' found in the early Soloviev and the late Dostoevsky.
