letter of Rev.Dn.George Mathew
- Dear friend,
It is always hard to get rid of the influence of Satan
from our day to day life. He is relentlessly trying to
retrieve God�s children.
In the movie named �Lord of the Rings� who ever posses
the ring it leads him to destruction / struggle. Just
like that the �Throne of St.Thomas�. Since the day of
its beginning the struggle within the church started.
Church is one and it is indivisible. You may say �then
why we see all these divisions already�. They are not
divisions. They are the administrative distributions by
the holy synod. None of the holy sees are in enmity or
in difference of opinions. All of them are faithful to
each other and one under the throne of St.Peter.
The Throne of St.Thomas is creation of some crafty people,
only after 1912.Malankara Church is included under the
holy see of Antioch in the holy synod of Nicea in 325AD.
If there was a separate throne for St. Thomas it would
have been mentioned in any one of the holy synod listings.

St.Paul warns us of not to listen to heretics,

In your letter you mentioned about being sister churches.
Of course we can do that. To attain the status of sister
church, we have to start loving each other. When we are
in love we share each other .We care for each other. We
support each other. That means we stop fights and
litigations. We have to do exactly like Abraham and Lot
did. Give the churches back to its owners (democratically).
Again, you referred, a friend loans some money to buy the
house. In our case it is not a friend loans money .It is
the father who built a house for his son and the father
always has the freedom to visit his children and even
advise them to truth about God.
The time is not over . The IOC can choose between the
right & wrong.
In Christ Jesus,
St. Thomas Church Pakkil Kottayam.
