A FRANK OPINION ON A NAKED THRUTH ABOUT US
- I have gone thru few posting in the SOCM Forum and you may find my
feelings to both factions of Malankara Syrian Christian Church as follows.
In our church, divisions started in my childhood and was very keen to
participate in all protest marches conducted by the then Ankamali Diocesan
Methrapolitian HG Thomas Mor Divanyasios. I belongs from St. Marys Church
Marady, near Muvattupuzha . After 20 years ( married, settled at Delhi) ,
I find extremely difficult to digest the way the church people fight as
stray dogs at street. The way people are divided by church leaders for the
sake of money, power and prestige. I wonder that in which groups our Lord
Jesus belongs. Do we have any morale to preach the teaching of our Lord
Jesus. Do they( our church leaders) enjoying benefits of Divide and Rule
policy? I heard that most of the church officials in the rich parishes near
to my native, misusing their official power to enjoy church's fund for
running BLADE BANK. Since the Court Dispute with various churches hinder
managing committee to make any deposits in banks or any other financial
institutions. Hence the churches income are kept in trusted peoples hands
by the managing committee. Or the money is being lavishing spending on
Perunal Nercha (Good Five star food for all), unnecessary
construction/maintenance,fire works etc Oops!!!!!! After seeing all this
ordeal, I feel that ONLY WE (so called CHRISITAN ) CRUCIFIED LORD JESUS
CHRIST NOT THE JEWS. IT IS ONLY OUR CHURCH LEADERS WHO ARE KISSING (PRETEND
TO BE MORE AFFECTIONATE) JESUS CHRIST SAME WAY JUDE DONE. ONLY WE AUCTION
CHIT FOR HIS GOWN NOT ROMAN SOLDIERS.
Think! what is the basis principle of Christianity. Peace & Love. Do
our church ( both groups) deliver this to the world. Nobody want peace
because everybody want power. Nobody Loves because everybody love only
Money. How much money spent on Court disputes by both groups for the last
two decades. Who's money is this? Is it rear coin of the widow(whole
Syrian Christians)?( Any way the barristers/Advocates in Supreme court also
not interested to settle this case immediately, they wish it will continue
for the next generation also.) How much money spent of charity /social
upliftment( not only in kerala but also whole India , remember MSCC belong
to whole of India and the East) for the last two decades? What is our
contribution towards the society? How much time and energy we spent on
spiritual activities? Yes we do have. We built beautiful churches in
competition so that our leaders get more income to survive, our leaders
divide the folks to get more control. Say even if they think, they are
apostles of peace and love, they have saved this money and spent the same
for CHARITY. Alas ! WHO TALK ABOUT CHARITY NOW A DAYS. WE ONLY TALK
ABOUT SEAT OF POWER/THRONE (WHETHER IT IS PATHROS OR THOMAS, WE DO NOT
CARE!!!!). WE ONLY TALK OF HOW MUCH FOLLOWERS/CHURCHES "I CONTROL". SO THAT
OUR LIFE WILL BE MORE COMFORTABLE IN FUTURE WITHOUT ANY WORK ENJOY GOOD
KAYYIMUTH ( LOOK FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE DANAWAN ( RICH) AND NOT BOTHERED
ABOUT THE LAZAR ( THE POORIEST), FREE CAR, FREE PETROL, PF, BONUS,
GRATITUITY, FREE HOUSE/ PHONE, MEDICAL, LTA, VISA FOR ME/USA, GUARANTEE TO
PRIEST HOOD TO NEXT GENERATION, FREE CHILDREN EDUCATION/ADMISSION SABHA
SCHOOL/COLLEAGE, GURANTED POSITION OF TEACHER FOR PREIST OR KOCHAMMA etc.
(Please do not wonder, these facilities are already in place in New
Delhi's most reputed Church and that happens to be my temporary parish)
Recently I heard that the leaders are switching over another side just like
in political party ( Hay musical chair). If this spirituality continues by
us , we will have to see that our churches would be converted to monuments
like in Europe and other western nations.
It is a shame to our church. Let me tell you my 95 year old father still
says MALANKARA SYRIAN CHRISITAN CHURCH will one day will be a Govt.
controlled body same as DEVASOM BOARD in Kerala. (I still remember my Ist
standard story A BREAD BETWEEN TWO CATS(FOOLISH) AND A BRILLIANT MONKEY ON
My request to all, that let us try to find a amicable solutions thru talk,
in our action, in brotherhood principle which we have been preaching,
believing, practicing and the learning from Holy Bible. ( I really
disagree the fact that any court verdict for a spiritual supremacy of any
kind in the world from any where have any impact in human because
SPIRITUALISM is a human psychological behavior. Shame !!! Shame!! We
require a court verdit to prove our spirituality which we have freely
inherited from our forefathers since AD 52. SHAME SHAME
PS: author sincerely and unconditionally apologize for any physical and
metal agony caused to the readers by expressing this frank and sincere
opinion. It is unfortunate for me to express this opinion even though I have
been associated with a great church MSOCC by birth. I sincerely believe
that the TRUTH in the world is bitter, difficult to chew & swallow, and
not easy to digest. thanks
