      Dear Dn. George

      You stated: "History also tells us that there were
      relgious attacks by various groups. Help was sought
      from the Antioch and was rendered. They helped the
      Indian Church to reorganize and become 'alive' again.
      And, the Indian Church was truly thankful and appreciative.
      But, does that mean that the Indian Church has to lose its
      authenticity and submit itself to the SOC?"

      If an independent Indian Church as you claimed existed
      before these attacks, why is it that this Indian Church
      uses the same exact sunday liturgy, the same order for the
      sacraments, the same vestements, the same church vesseles
      etc..(EVERYTHING IS IDENTICAL!) as the Syriac Church. Even
      through these 'attacks', wouldn't something(as far as a
      liturgy, oral traditions, books, or for that matter ANYTHING
      AT ALL) have remained. Would the Indian Church, all of a
      sudden throw away Her native identity which was formed over
      1600 years, and accept everything that is of the FOREIGN SYRIAC
      church and make such a drastic change after "receiving help
      from Antioch". This does not make sense to me.
