Dear Mr. Roy Mathews, Hatred is merely momentary. Once unity is there,
you will realize how good it is. Remove that hatred and try to love
us as Jesus loves you. Remember that Christ's love is unconditional.
Similalry Christians reflect this to others.
Regarding unity, it cannot be imposed, rather comes through unity in
one faith. In that sense, we are closer and united compared with our
unity with other churches. "That they may be one" was the final
intercession of Christ. In Christianity, believers in a specific
region remained united. Apostle Paul appeals to churches in various
regions against division.
To the Church in Corinth region,
"Paul, called to be an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, and
our brother Sosthenes, To the church of God in Corinth, ..." (1 Cor.
"I appeal to you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that
all of you agree with one another so that there may be no divisions
among you and that you may be perfectly united in mind and thought."
Just imagine replacing Corinth with Malankara.
May be too much love means swallowing also. Some times we take our
young children and tell them "ninne njan thinnan pokuva". That may be
why we swallow the body of Christ through Eucharist.
