- Dear Mr.Saju Paulose, You spoke everything that are going through the minds of the mass out there with regard to what have been happening in the other troubledMessage 1 of 3350 , Jul 31, 2006View SourceDear Mr.Saju Paulose,
You spoke everything that are going through the minds of the mass out there with regard to what have been happening in the other troubled isle. Well done! But before I, the worthless, say anything further on the subject may I add a sentence that you missed in your message: "When we rejoice in the present blessings that showered upon us by the ever Merciful, we should not be like the pride Israelites who tragically forgot the mighty Deliverer. Let our prayer be continuous to the One who is always ready there in listening".
Your message reminds a scriptural warning. The sinful deeds of fathers will bring curse on the children of their seven generations(at least). Dear Mr.Saju, the labor pain only just started. The writhe and wriggling of our Holy Fathers on the account of the happenings of 1908-1912 period onwards have yet been answered. The BIG time is yet to come when those miscreants and their generations have to "look unto the one they had wounded". You may note down this prophecy: There will be a day when their generations in the far away continents will turn around 360 degrees and say, "who the hell are you to rule over us from Kottayam, we are autocephalous and don't tell us what to do". They ought to pay this ultimate price for their misdeeds.
I can only pray, "Lord! Be merciful to them".

- Dear Sir, Thanks for the reply and I appreciate that. Nevertheless, I would like to point out few things for your information and kind consideration. (1) Yes,Message 3350 of 3350 , Mar 8 9:35 PMView SourceDear Sir,Thanks for the reply and I appreciate that. Nevertheless, I would like to point out few things for your information and kind consideration.(1) Yes, It is noticed that the calendar is made by Samajam, but let me reiterate its a Church Calendar. I had pointed out this to Mr. Daniel, who made this a year back, but unfortunately I got the reply that this is to be used for Saudi Arabia. I don't think any one in Saudi Arabia use Church Calendar in their offices. Further, if its for Saudi Arabia, that shpuld be with Samajam members and wellwishers, it should not appear in jacobite online's website. Am I making sense?(2) Even our local church calendar in Kerala often makes this mistakes, as they put these dates in Calendars, I believe. How can we justify that, if so.(3) Communal harmony is well and good, but that should not get in to a level which dilutes the basic faith (when I say faith means, its Christian Faith, not church/ community) we adhere to.As a person, I'm so weak and cannot take it to higher hierarchy, but you can.Once again thanks for your reply and I hope my points are clear to you now.RegardsShibu MATHEWID number is 4595

It has been noticed for the past couple of years hat the Church Calendar highlights the 'Hijra' dates along with the Gregorian date. Basically there is nothing harmful in first shot, but there is a damage behind that.Hijra year is basically the year Muslims calculate as the year when they received Quran to them. My question, Are we Christians accept and acknowledge the same?St. Pauls says to Galatians 1: 9 "As we said before, so say I now again, If any [man] preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed."Keeping this in mind; how do we highlight Hijri year? Let normal calendar carry it for business reasons, but Church Calendar shall not...Please express yourself with comments....Rgds
