It is indeed rejoicing to learn a few writings from
our young friends and their hope for an eternal peace
in malankara church. once i tried to review the
postings from both forums related to the church
dispute. all were arguing for peace. we listened to
our church leaders of both factions and all were
asking for a 'peace'. several 'prayer & fasting'
sessions were held in parumala, kothamangalam and
manarcd. the situation became grave according to the
observers. all the Christian denominations came
forward to bring 'peace' even Govt of Kerala and
ruling UDF came forward to work for peace. none of it
Jesus the God asked ' do you wish to be cured???????'
we want 'peace' subjected to so and so conditions.
what are those conditions?
we need independence
we need to protect our simhasanam
all the properties under the malankara church should
be under my rule.
we are orthodox and jacobites more than Christians.
we donot know what was the history of our church upto
Jesus the God declared that His kingdom is not in the
world if it was temporal the 'heavenly force' could
have fought for Him. What about Church which is His
body. how can it be ruled with our 'intellegence'.
we must have our 'faith' that Holy Spirit is guiding
us. we should not try to control the 'ordainees of
Holy Spirit'. they are supposed to cry in front of
Jesus and ask for wisdom.
the democratic set up developed for world governments
may not be suitable for the church. a total change
towards 'divine administration' in the church is
needed. at the time of apostles they never conducted
any election to select a disciple to the vacant
position of Judas. they prayed for Holy Spirit to show
them the man and took a chit. can we agree to a system
of chit taking after 'prayer & fasting' for three days
by the holy synod and take a chit from the names of
all bishops to choose 'patriarch/catholicos'.
the crux of our problem is lack of LOVE towards God
and man. once i wrote about the behaviour of our
people in the parishes. when we love God we will
certainly love our brothers. the love will strengthen
us to accept defeat for Jesus the God.
if we accept it we should not make water tight
compartments in Christianity. every one should attend
the divine worship of any church because Jesus the God
is worshipped there.
the youngsters regardless of factions attend the
worship in orthodox/ jacobite churches. respect the
clergy of both factions, take confession and ask them
to pray for you and family. should not argue for
trivial church politics. let the clergy use their
mouth to praise Jesus the God, the hands to celebrate
the holy mysteries, the eyes to look into the holy
literature. we should not take them to utter abuses
against the 'ordainees', celebrate liturgies of the
world, false witness in the world courts.
Christians are divine people chosen by Jesus the God
we should not destroy our identity. the only
commandment that was given to us by Jesus the God is
