    The trip of a lifetime landed in my lap—visiting the Seven Churches of Revelation. Until recently, I didn’t even know all seven churches were located in modern-day Turkey. A friend and I flew to Izmir, Turkey, where we rented a car and drove to all seven churches in a quick, three-day trip.

    All remaining Orthodox Christians were kicked out of Turkey (except those who were in what is now known as Istanbul) after war with Greece in 1922-23. Turkey also perpetrated the Armenian genocide during WW I. There are some Kurdish Christians in Turkey, who are severely persecuted due to both race and religion.
    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. – St. John Chrysostom

    I recommend you do not try too hard and ...research as little as possible. Such weighty things give me a headache. - Shunyadragon, Baha'i apologist

    The Orthodox church has endured a lot of persecution, and has shown the faithfulness spoken by the Lord of Smyrna and Pergamum.

    And I do wish that Kurdish Muslims would return to their Christian roots, and may the Lord show himself strong on behalf of these believers!
