That this is the only route to follow is clear from the fact that the dogmas and canons of the Nine Roman Ecumenical Councils were, from AD to A.
To get at this reality we are obliged to deal with the falsification of this historical reality by the Franco-Latins since the time of Charlemagne on the one hand and by the Russians since Peter the Great on the other hand.
These turns of historical events are simply the transformation of entire segments of the Church from being centers of the cure of the sickness of religion into missions for the spread of the sickness of religion. John 17 is the par excellence prayer of Christ for the unity of His disciples and their disciples in the cure of the sickness of religion by means of their glorification by the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit which is the culmination of the purification and illumination of the centers of their personalities in their hearts.
This prayer of the Lord of Glory has nothing whatsoever to do with divided Churches which have not the slightest inkling of the cure of glorification in question. Most Christians, Jews and Moslems who live in or derive from the former territories of the Roman Empire have Roman ancestry.
In contrast the Franco-Latin royalty and nobility came into the Roman Empire as conquerors of the West Romans whom they transformed into their serfs and villains and their middle class.

This re-union of the Roman Orthodox world is at the same time each one's cure of the sickness of religion and is at the same time the power which will slam down the brakes on the happiness-mongering fiends who are destroying society and nature.
The keys to this study are the following: Key One, The primitive Greek Romans. Key Two, The Christian Romans. Key Four, the Biblical foundation of the cure of the neurobiological sickness of religion, especially based on 1 Cor. We will not deal with these parts in consecutive order.
The reason for this is that the vision of history of both the pagan Romans and Christian Romans has been so adulterated by Franco-Latin propaganda that we are obliged at times to mix these parts together.
The very existence of the primitive Greek Romans has been completely abolished by historians who continue to support Charlemagne's Lie of which inaugurated the historical dogma that the Roman language was and is Latin.
This has remained so in spite of the Roman sources which describe Greek as the first language of the Romans. It seems that Charlemagne's Lie of was based on hearsay and the need to cut off West Romans enslaved to the Franco-Latins from the free East Romans.

The Greeks have ceased to be emperors of the Romans for their cacodoxy.
