      The Bible.

      The Holy Bible should not be used to terrorize people.
      Some "evangelists" use it as a weapon to scare the faithful.
      Please note the Bible is only one among many tools to understand
      Faith. The Bible we use today is a collection of many books,
      which even misses some books, which are yet to be discovered.

      Example:-
      The Book Of Wars (Num.21: 14),
      The Book of the Manner of the Kingdom (1 Sam.10:25),
      Another Epistle of Paul (1 Cor. 5:9),
      The Epistle from Laodicea (Col. 4:16).etc.

      The Bible should not be quoted or interpreted as anyone wishes.
      Out of context or partial quotes are dangerous. Is it a correct
      evangelism if you teach that the bible says "Judas hanged himself"
      and Jesus says, "do ye likewise" and to copy it? Or should you
      teach that the bible says, "there is no God"? Even though partially
      it is correct. Can we redo all the evils such as murder, massacre,
      robbery, wife stealing, fornications etc. narrated in the bible?

      For further clarifications you may please contact your local Priest
      of the Orthodox Church. Or Very Reverend Doctor Kurien
      Kaniyamparampil, Tiruvella is the best source if you could contact
      him. (Or myself if you may choose).

      Thank you.
      May God Bless you.
      With love and prayers,
