God builds His church with people who He foreknew and called and justified and will glorify. And the gates of hell cannot prevail over His church - the church is secured by God. And Jesus said that of those His Father gives Him, He will lose none - they are saved already. And when God makes a person a building block in His church, that person gets the truth who is Jesus. And the truth sets them free. And they get the way who is Jesus. And the way is the way to heaven and eternal life.
When men build churches they build them with stone, concrete wood etc. Those churches are not constructed with living building blocks and cannot stand for very long. Most of the churches built by men are gone within 100 years. But if the leaders of those churches do what God has commissioned them to do while they stand, then some of the people in those churches are also living building blocks in the church built by God the Son and will never jump out of God's hand.
So if Putin did indeed build 5000 new churches which ave attendees ruled by 10,000 new priests, some of the attendees could indeed be living building blocks in the church that God the Son is building - and if the clergy of Putin's new churches fill those buildings with people by the usual means of men, the only people in them who will not be under the control of those clerics will be the ones who are building blocks in the church that God the Son is building. Manmade churches are often extensions of control over the masses. So why would Putin not build 10,000 new churches and ordain 20,000 new priests.
