Re: Renaming the Church Shortcut to end an identity crisis
- St.Thomas only started the preaching of the Gospel. My father and
mother first preached the gospel to me, and they were Syrian Orthodox
Christians from Kerala. Via the mediation of the Church and the work of the Holy Spirit, I came to know Jesus Christ. This knowledge is the
direct result of the Syrian Church sustaining the faith in India. St.
Thomas was a Palestinian (Syrian) Christian, as you know. It is silly
for a Ph.D. to claim that anything after St. Thomas is mere "appendix," as if the Holy Spirit stopped working after the Holy Apostle's death, and you became a priest by St. Thomas' direct hand! 2 Tim 3:7
