Trouble in Turkey for Patriarch Bartholomew – Ben Witherington on the Bible and Culture

What Remains of Eastern Orthodoxy in Turkey

“60 Minutes did a fascinating segment on Eastern Orthodoxy and the remnant of Christians still living in modern day Turkey, often under persecution. If you watch this video, you’ll see beautiful pictures of some of the oldest Christian church buildings still in existence. The video ends with the ecumenical patriarch saying,
We prefer to stay here, even crucified sometimes. Because in the gospel it is given to us, not only to believe in Christ, but to suffer for Christ. We believe in the resurrection. After the crucifixion, resurrection comes.

quote of the day – the most shocking thing

“Then comes the real shock. There suddenly turns up a man who goes about talking as if He was God. He claims to forgive sins. He says He has always existed. He says He is coming to judge the world at the end of time. Now let us get this clear. Among Pantheists, like the Indians, anyone might say that he was part of God, or one with God: there would be nothing very odd about it. But this man, since He was a Jew, could not mean that kind of God. God, in their language, meant the Being outside the world who had made it and was infinitely different from anything else. And when you have grasped that, you will see that what this man said was, quite simply, the most shocking thing that has ever been uttered by human lips.”
— C.S. Lewis
