Re: Basic differeces between Orthodox and Jacobite faction.
- Dear Brother Thomas,
I had written this to you earlier.But as most
of your mails voice against the term Jacobites,
let me have a say in the Forum.
Before going on to the evolution of the term,
please try to coin a name for the church under
Catholicose Mathews II..Decide upon the various
names your people use now..Malankara Orthodox or
Malankara Syrian Orthodox or Indian Orthodox or
the other local suggestions like Kottayam Syrian
Church or Devalokam Syrian Orthodox or St.Thoma
Church or Vattassserites(as a tit for tat).
Eventhough rejected by SOC earlier,the term Jacobites
was forced to be used by circumstances in Malankara..
And I feel proud of it.
And one major point you missed out in the first list
is (Which should be 3rd entry in the list):
All churches which is not ready to accept whatever
MM-Devalokam Lobby suggests are supposed to be closed
down for ever.
