The Sacrilege of the Hagia Sophia

Reader comment on item: Florida Museum Celebrates the Loss of Hagia Sophia

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Jun 1, 2017 at 14:59

The loss of the Hagia Sophia (as is so seditiously displayed in Florida) to the marauding Islamic hordes should serve, not so much as a warning (for that would have been valuable to the remaining Christian enclaves of those times and it apparently coming too late today), but as a commentary of the failure of the mainstream bastions of those who claim to be defenders of the contemporary Christian belief system today. True followers of Jesus Christ today are not to be confused with this, since they are being Scripturally instructed to be watchmen for these very things.

Constantinople was lost for one very real reason - it was a place that no longer observed the deep truths of what Jesus taught; and Islam, now engaged in a replacement religion program, was/is intent on replacing Christianity and its Jewish roots for the intent of the Ummah. Now, just as then, this is still the issue of why there is no peace in the world.
