In my opinion, it is high time for all of us to analyse where we failed to achieve as a church instead of pulling each other's legs.
If we have been right as a church in our direction we wouldn't have
1000s of varieties in churches in Kerala where all their members are
former Orthodox Christians(Orthodox / Jacobtie)
In its 100 year old History what has the IOC (a schismatic church which still continues to persecute the Syrian Orthodox faithful to this day) done for the greater glory of God?
IOC members in the forum especially the IOC priests could do a little introspection.
You know there is a word in the English Dictionary called "sorry"
And Acknowledging your shortcomings and misdoings would do more than enough to bring about peace in India.
Unity is impossible now.
Making Vattasseril a saint...doctoring some of ancient texts and twisting to suit their needs, closing down churches, consecrating Gurgan and the very excommunication of its founders makes unity now a non possibility.
The only option for peace is acknowledging each other as sister churches.
They swear by the 1934 constitution which they hold dear to their hearts than the Holy Bible. So be it
Am sure me and my SOC brethren, will hold no animosity but instead help our IOC (a schismatic church which still continues to persecute the Syrian Orthodox faithful to this day) in their hour of need. This Christian attribute is what sustains the SOC.
