TO ADD AND READ ON CHURCH ELECTIONS
- Dear brothers
Addendum to the practical instrustions sent in by
mr Joykutty, Detroit, It would be nice if you could
add and read these lines too.
Try to avoid alcaholics from church administration
and if possible - amend your constitution, bye-laws
and penal codes so that no alcaholics come in the
hurch administration nor let them enter the altar
to serve the God.
The Epistles of St: Paul very clearly instruct us
about the qualities of a church administrator.
Why? Because; 64 times the scripiture talks against
drinking and it's adverse consequences - I know that
many of you may not like this idea.
I think it is already late for our church to act.
In this week's X-Mas service message, our Diocesean
Metropolitan Mor Julious very clearly instructed
the parishners to refrain from drinking during this
Holy Season. I personally believe that many of the
problems in our church and our families can be
avoided if we keep alcaholics away - and in another
way it will encourage our sheeps to stop drinking so
that they can come into the main frame.
There are many of our families shedding tears becos
of the alcaholic problems among their family memers -
social drinking leads to deeper sitautions. Let us
pray for those families and may God bless their
beloved ones for redemption from this addiction.
Let our Holy Church come back to the basics.
Yours in love of our Lord & Christ Jesus
