- Feb 6, 2001All the divisions we have in Malankara is not in the
name of True Faith or Christ. It is merely based on
human emotions. There is nothing wrong if all Malankara
Christians remain united and work in India in a united
manner. In fact this is what Christ wanted when he
sent an Apostle to India. The world will not end if
we are united. Infact there will be much joy in heaven
and great peace in our families if we can unite.
If all members practise few things below, true
unity and everlasting peace can be achieved among
Malankara Nazrani community.
1) understand the true faith as it was taught
by the Coptic Orthodox Church to rest of the Christendom.
2) don't be ashamed of the Indian identity. God created
Indians just like he created Syrians.
3) follow the path of Christ
In the newly formed country of Eritrea, when their
Church wanted to exist in Eritrea, they approached
the Coptic Patriarch. The Coptic Patriarch created
the Patriarchate of Eritrea and appointed Philipose 1
the first Patriarch of Eritrean Church. This happened
two years ago. In India the Malankara Nazarani
community have an identity, it is an Apostolic Church
founded by St. Thomas.
The division was very costly for the community, many
people left the Church because of this. Who is accountable
for all these?
