- Do any thing, then apologize, you will be forgiven !
Now i understand what makes Malankara Indian Orthodox Syrian Church unique. Look how easily they solved a controversial problem which in another Church/society might have faced severe punishment. Last day when two bishops, of this very special Church, who ordained another one for another Church in another country, apologised for their simple mistake, the Synod of their Church decided to forgive and forget ! That is great and they are great and all are great. This is what a Church exactly must be. Make hoi hoi for a constitition made in 1934 and then disobey it and then forgive and forget those who don't obey it. At the same time make it compulsory for those who are not members of the Church, they must certainly obey this rule book orelse they will be put in Jail. But for those inside the Church the rules are different, they need not obey their rule book, just ignore it and then apologise. THIS IS A GREAT CHURCH, NO DOUBT ABOUT IT.
