Can we call ourselves the children of God and follower of Jesus by
breaking our heads on this type of issues? Already many many years and
many many souls have been lost by we two thousand year old
'Christians' of Malankara. Is it not time to say'Enough is Enough' ?!

Church using the title Pope for their chief father? Historically the
title Pope existed in the Alexandrian Church before Rome started
I think we are not too much worried about these issues, but we need to
be aware of the truth through discussions. I think this awareness
about what is going on around is important. Even the Apostles had
different titles and names assigned to them. Jesus surnamed Simon as
Peter. He assigned the name 'Boanerges' (sons of Thunder) to James
the son of Zebedee and John the brother of James. I think we need to
discuss about each issue seperately with out mixing with other topics.
