That the home of the reformation is now mostly godless is tragic.
Both Russia and Germany have a long way to go from recovering from their Soviet/Nazi pasts -- but in Germany's defense, they are OVER-compensating in their wrestling with guilt...hence the migrant crisis. They feel that by taking in this generation's refugees, they are atoning for their past.
However, churches are not governments and the fact is: numerous orphans and refugees have converted to Christianity upon their arrival in Germany. That reality is not to be undermined or insulted.
Germans also pay reparations to Jewish families. Germany (with America's help) persecuted Nazi war criminals. And despite my problems with the EU and Ms. Merkel: I do believe God has looked well upon Germany and there's a reason for their great success and booming economy.
Russia has done none of the above in terms of wrestling with their past. They put on a good show with their Crosses and Candles and yet they're at war with Ukraine. Kiev is the spiritual cradle of all Russian civilization and right now Russians and Ukrainians are at war. Thousands are dead and the war continues. Orthodox Christians are split and divided.
