Re: The devil begets his children and followers
- Respected Father,
Your message raises a question to the responsibility of our church leadership how and why the immoral activists like Gorgun be selected as kassisso or even deacon , which is the root cause of the dilemma they created as Gorgan's current activities.
Love in Christ,

Praying monks and fathers in the monastries were the spiritual batteries of the church all through the centuries. Are we having such monks now? When somebody shows the willingness to remain monk, shouldn't we really purusue the real motivation behind the decision? Is monastic life considered today just as a step to become bishop? The famous theologian and spiritual father of our Church, Jacob of Edsessa was appointed bishop of Edessa in AD 684. But he resigned after 4 years because the life of bishop didn't match to his monatic ideal. The rest of the life he liveed a true monk. That is the model of our church.
