Much misunderstanding results from erroneous history about migration to North America about 1900.Too often Molokane are confused with Dukhobortsy and many other sects that pretended to be Molokane when they fled from Russia, and/or arrived in California.Only about 500 Molokane (100 families) migrated to California where most settled in San Francisco and Northern California.

should be used when generally referring to an unknown or mixed religious group(s) of non-Orthodox, non-Jewish, non-Muslim and similar faiths and/or groups in Old Russia, and/or their descendants, whose ancestry may be a Armenian, Chuvash, Finn, German, Russian, Tatar, Ukrainian, Mordvin, etc.; or more likely an ethnic mixture. Abra canon, un texto sagrado que puede ser modificado por la revelación continua, algo similar a cánones de los Santos de los Últimos Días. Alrededor de 200 profetas desde 1900, pero sólo 4 profetas mayores, publicados en Kniga solnste, dukh i zhizn' (libro sagrado). Más de 100 profecías se registran en todo el mundo en cuadernos secretos, a veces se muestra a los creyentes fuertes. Onların kutsal kitabında, sadece dört büyük peygamberler yayınlanmaktadır. ——————————— Short answer to question 2: What and who are they? Though many resisted name hijacking, the false identity transformation was gradually adopted until it passed a tipping-point by W. II, probably because outsiders used this simpler label and real Molokane 400 miles away in San Francisco did not object.

Please properly use these 3 transliterated Russian terms in honest respect, to set the record straight. Her bir topluluk 1 ya da daha fazla peygamber vardır. ——————————— Short answer to question 1: Why do so many falsely call themselves "Molokan"? The false label confuses histories of diverse faiths which are not Molokan, and should not be used except for actual Molokane.

Avoid confusing English labels, except to define the original labels in the Russian language. To hide a complicated, confusing and illegal history in Old Russia, which misled descendants' understanding of their origins; and it is a safe easy incorrect word to use in English. It's silly, like calling all animals with 4 feet and a tail "cats" because you don't know the other names (dog, horse, mouse, sheep, wolf, etc.); or labeling Baptists as Catholics because their ancestors were Catholics.

Avoid misinformation and disinformation published after 1900. Molokane have a central hierarchy (a bureaucracy), published contacts and content on the Internet, meetings, conventions, buildings, interfaith representation, and a long a history of publications in Russia.

Numerous old reports of organized Molokane outside of Northern California are false. Congregations that use the Dukh i zhizn' (short title) are loosely networked transformed faiths not in koinonia (unity, fellowship, brotherhood, partnership, full communion : They have no uniform liturgy, no central office, no public phone number, no official representatives or central organization,(7) no official website or centralized world-wide network, and no journal or newsletter.

Though each Dukh-i-zhiznik congregation has one or more prophets, only the writings of 4 prophets from Russia are published in their holy book: Kniga solnste, dukh i zhin' (Book of the Sun, Spirit and Life, 1928) which separates them from all other faiths.Oral and notebook prophecies of perhaps 100 other prophets exist, and about 200 prophets have been active in the past century.Other Spiritual Christian (non-Orthodox, sectarian) groups with origins in Old Russia that resettled in North America (Adventisty, Baptisti, Dukhobortsy, Evangeliki, Pyatidesyatniki, Shalaputi, Subbotniki, Svobodniki, etc.) are not the focus of this taxonomy, though they are also sometimes mixed with, intermarried, and naively mislabeled as "Molokan" along with other faiths and people in the Russian Empire and North America. They are Bible-centered Christians in Russia, not Orthodox, who kept about 10% of Orthodox ritual.* This is label best matches the short name for the holy book. A more accurate label for this faith is Non-Fasters, because they were Christian people in Russia who did not comply with the ~200 fasting days required by the Russian Orthodox Church. They intentionally mislabeled all Spiritual Christians from Russia in Southern California as "Molokans" for their own different altruistic reasons. ——————————————————————————— A simple historical classification system (below) defines confused sub-groups of non-dukhobor* Spiritual Christians, who, a century ago were told by Demens and Young in Los Angeles that they should all claim to be "Molokans" in America no matter what or who they were in Russia, or became in America. Young, independently at different times intervened to help diverse groups of immigrants from Russia to resettle in the United States and Mexico.
