Re: Jacobites not Orthodox
- Just because something is written somewhere doesn't prove that
is is the truth about a matter. In some old records, India is
under the British. Many old opinions are corrected today.
It is clearly recorded by Orthodox church fathers, even Syrian
Orthodox fathers,that the usage "Jacobite" is incorrect. Syrian
Orthodox church officially never used this name. If our ancestors
in Kerala did it wrong, we have a chance to correct it. IOC is
actually following the advice of some old Syrian fathers who were
strictly against calling the Church Jacobite. Let us not mix this
name issue with MM etc.
