If you're Christian you believe that Christ is almighty and not some dark forces. The "resistance is worthless" approach to me looks like worshipping the elites like some pagan gods.
Your point about collective repentance is refuted by Christian history too. Plenty of evil forces in European history were stopped through resistance without any sort of 'collective repentance' beforehand. The 'collective repentance' mindset led to defeatism and phenomenons like flagellants, people whiping themselves on the streets instead of actually standing up to the evil.
By your logic if you lived in 1520s Europe, you'd say that the Satanic godless Ottoman Empire can't be stopped and they've "accounted for resistance" and military defense is useless and there should just be some processions of repentance and people whipping themselves. In reality, the onslaught was stopped by brutal Landsknecht mercenaries at Vienna in 1529 who had just years prior to that raped their way through Italy and sacked Rome, and showed no repentance of that. They stopped the Turks because they had balls and good military leadership, and did not have any respect for the Turkish army even though it outnumbered them 10:1, because they were not defeatists who'd attribute superpowers to their enemies. This is because God always rewards the brave, and plenty of examples of history show that. A lot of times Christians were saved by people who lived far from model Christian lives.
It’s not logic and it’s not mine. This is what the saints of the Orthodox Church tell us.
Incidentally what is happening now is not comparable to any other event in history. “Having balls” will not get you out of this. Pride got us into this, only humility will get us out.
