Congratulations to H E Archbishop Eldo Mor Tithos,
and the Archdiocese for this blessed occasion.
We have to thank Our Supreme Head HH Moran Mor Ignatius
Zakka 1 Iwas the Patriarch for taking necesary actions
when this Archdiocese suffering.
The people who suffer the torturing of anti Patriarch
group knows the importance of our church and her leaders.
When I heard the new Archbishop's name I remembered what
I read about Titus.
Titus was one of St. Paul's converts and a considerable
help to Paul in his ministry. When Paul left Antioch to
discuss "his" gospel with the Jerusalem leaders, he took
Titus with him, acceptance of Titus as a Christian without
circumcision vindicated Paul's stand there. Presumably T
itus, who is bot referred to in Acts, worked with Paul at
Ephesus during the third missionary journey. From there
the apostle sent him to Corinth to help that church with
Following Paul's release from his Roman imprisonment, he
and Titus worked briefly in Crete, after which he
commissioned Titus to remain there as his representative
and complete some needed work. Paul asked Titus to neet
him at Nicopolis when a replacement arrived. Later,
Titus went on a mission to Dalmatia, the last word we
hear about him in the NT. Considering the assignment
given him, he obviously was a capable and resourceful
When we read Titus chapter 1 Paul was directing Titus
what to do in his new region.
1:5 The reason I left you in Crete was that you might
straighten out what left unfinished and appoint elders
(priests) in every town, as I directed you An Elder
(priest) must be blamless, the husbhand of but one
wife, a man whose children believe and are not open
to the charge of being wild and disobedient.. Since
an overseer is entrusted with God's work, he must be
blameless not overbearing not quick-tempered, not
given to drunkenness, not violent, not pursuting
dishonest gain. Rather he must be hospitable, one
who loves what is good. who is self controlled
upright, holy and disciplined.
He must hold firmly to the trustworthy message as it
has been taught, so that he can encourage other by
sound doctrine and refute those who oppose it.
If we read all Titus chapter 1 through 3 it is very
interesting. I am not writing this to blame anyones
feelings. most of these lines I wrote taken from
I did not mean to hurt anyones feeling. I am a
victim of writing the truth. I lost lot of my friends,
property damages, peace lost in family, church.
Why all these, hope this new year will bring us
together as a unified family.
Love each other God Said Hate Sin and Love sinners.
that i did.
