After asking Orthodox theologians in Greece and in the Holy Mountain , Athos,About the health of the doctrine of monument statue amid Orthodox Monastery
As was expected, according to our modest knowledge, the respond was:
"Statues in Orthodox , are rejected , it 's just a fetish, and is not related to the Orthodox faith
Because, if we compare between the statue and the concept of the icon
We find that there is no correlation
Because the Orthodox icon in orthodoxy , is a page in the Holy Bible, or evangelical Verse, Written by colors, Or it reflect biography of one of the saints.
As for Jesus ChristThe icon of Jesus Christ, Has a deep theological reading , for example , :Icon of Christ Pantocrator.
And we supposed that the Orthodox Church in Syria , is aware of the seriousness of this work at the theological level."
The other side of the issue, related to Russian ambitions in Syria and generally in the East
Thus the dispute between the Ecumenical Patriarch and Patriarch of Moscow, is the biggest proof
The situation in Syria easier for the Russians, Because the keys of the country has become in their hands, and one of the most important means to control, or occupation, is through the use of religion, and exploitation of the name of Jesus Christ to promote their dirty plans.
And Cherubim Monastery ' who is an Orthodox Monastry', has a history with Russians, since before the year 2000Where there were many attempts to control over the monastery
To the extent that Russians gave an order to the Syrian regime for paving and improving the road to the monastery, where the monastery was a center for suspicious meetings.
At that time, there was no monks in the monastery. But they made him an orphanage for nearly 15 children.
in fact this a large story, maybe in other time we can talk about it.
With this we conclude, that the establishment of the statue or the so-called statue of Christ, is one of the steps to complete the Russians control over Syria, on the blood of Syrians.
