I personally would like to welcome you to our forum.in the name of
our Lord Jesus christ and our christian brother hood.
But I would like to caution you firstthat there will be some

lead you away from church.We are all human beings and such things will be
I will call two instances to emphasise this.
1.Take the biblical scenerio of creation.Adam had two sons intially.They
have the entire
world to share.One could have taken the left and other right and both could
have been happy.
But what we see is the first murder of the world.
2.Even the christ first line diciples had few times arguments on who is

BIBU PHILIP MATTHEW M
So long as the 'Knight of Jacoob Baraedius' knows
difference between church previlages and means of salvation,
so long as he is a 'Christian first and a Syrian Orthodox
second', I dont find any fault with this man.it is better
to express opinions than suppress it otherwise it may end
in uncontrollable emotional outbust of Physical action.
In the wake of many accusations and heated words of exchange,
I like to remind all,that we have a great home work to do,let
litigation and concerned legal matters proceed on one end, on
the other hand simultaneosly we have to do many constructive work
like service to society/charity works,(let leaders form special
commitee for this if my suggestion is acceptable) also we have to
be more professional in church management;including training and
selection of priest,bishops, youth movement...we have to impose
disciple and everything should be in order.
our progress we have to measure by our spiritual, intellectual,
and charitable service/contributions to humanity(the week and
suffering) as christians first and genuine Syrian Orthodox
secondly.We should have a vision,where there is no vision the
people perish.We should not bicker over trivial issues, but
fight boldly for noble causes.We have to examine if there is
anything wrong on our side and correct it to prevent further
repeatation of managerial defects/style of functioning etc... if any.
To the Catholic Gentleman from Philippines, joined forum recently,
my message is dear Mr. Pauolo G.
" there will be heated debates in some topics as a grassroot
level debate, hope you will tolerate it as part of life and as
a man of understanding, as problems are there everywhere.You are
most welcome to the forum as scion of St.Peter's church, Patriarch;
St.Peter being the founder of both Syrian Orthodox and Roman Catholic (Apostolic) churches."
God bless the church and all his chosen ones.
Bibu Philip Matthew
