@mathew Binu KulanadaBy opening all closed church ,there will be true worshipof God?If we believe/trust in God we can worship him in truth and spirit! There is no need of a church built by stones/bricks and tiles where disputes and conflicts are going on!Morever peace and harmoney could have achieved long time ago in Malankara if both factions would have followed Lord Jesus and his commandments!
Dear AllThere is re-unification in Malankara Church! Those who divided the church are not there for unification at all!The Best way is to end all disputes on church properties based on Christ's teachings and commandments and both factions stay in peace and harmony of the Living God!
Majority of both the side need peace and harmany. some methrans and leaders of both side don't want unit as they may loose their position. So my request to all for pray and try for love and peace in christ.
Do we really have to listen to this traitor who cheated his own people ? What peace is he talking about when he is the cause of fights and hatred in more than 35 churches ?And before you all jump at me... stick to the issue and don't take me on a free ride to Syria, US and Poland.. Let us solve issues here before peeping out.Pray for me sinner.God Bless you all !!!

Jolly MalayilYou should be our next church secretary. Possibily you should get chevalier position. If Metran Kakshi wants Unity, let them have it. We will strongly stand for division. Because if we can't follow the court verdict, what are we talking about mediative talks. Can't this be questioned in the court.Jolly you should understand one thing, the suggestion of the Judges was not for any unity, it is to make another twist in this case. Does your senses say that this will ever take place in today's world that too in Kerala amongst the Syrian christians.Muthupattar Seemayil ninnu vannallum athu nadakilla jolly mone.Antiokya simhasanam neenal vazhugatey
Dear AllWhen S/C asked both parties/faction to setlle the church cases out of court through a tribunal to be appointed by S/C none of the party involved in the fued agreed or ready to accept that suggestion! Now because of a subordinate court directions some people showing willingness to selltle the disputes out of court because of What?after the verdict of S/C 12 years passed and the validity of S/C verdict become invalid! So they can play their trick role well through mediators now!
If the mediators don't agree to our conditions then we will not agree to the mediative talks
Dear Saji AchenYou say that a parish consisting of more than 250 members should have two achens and those above 750 members should have 3 achens,if so Why couldn't you try for the same when you were in Bahrain parish for 3 years,which you have assured when you came for vacation from Baharain.Acha it is very easy to write or say anything but we should be practical in all aspects.
hi all,no use for this discussion.....just tell them to leave our church and go head with 2002 sabha and churches
Why we are making always cases against churches, is it Christianity? Jewish executed the Judgment 2000 years before, they cruised our God JesusPortugal executed the Judgment to Mor Ignatius Ahattula BABA, tied him up and cast in the Ocean ('Koonam Kurisu Sathayam') ,and lot more
I find the proposal #4 from Fr. Saji Mathew very interesting. He says, since the 1933 Consititution says that the Malankara Church needs a Patriarch, lets establish a Patrairch based in New Delhi.After reading that comment, I am beginning to wonder if Fr. Saji Mathew knows enough about the reasons of divison OR if Fr. Saji Mathew is serious about unity.

I think the evetual outcome of Fr. Saji's arguement is true seperation, not unity. Because his proposal #4 says, as per the 1935 Consititution Malankara Church needs a Patriarch, so lets establish a Patrairch based in New Delhi.That means two sections of people supporting two Patriarchs ie. Antioch and Delhi,similar like two Catholocose of Devalokam and Puthenkrush
@ Malankara Syriac Voice & JoshyAll that Saji Achan is mentioning is about having an Indian Patriarch for a UNITED indian church. In the 1934 constitution, it talks about the Syrian Patriarch as the primate with spiritual powers. Achan is wanting to have a United Indian church with a patriarch on her own, like all the other churches in the Oriental Orthodox group.Relations with Antioch can be sisiterly, like the Coptic and Ethiopian church.
Fr. Saji's suggestion to install a Patriarch in Delhi is factional terrorism.I belong to Orthodox faction , still I must say Fr. Saji's proposal is ridiculous.In short Fr. Saji is saying,If one is not able to get along with his 'own'father abandon him and take(install) a father from anybody he likes.Fr. Saji, disputes and diferences are there right from the beggining of Church. Canonical positions are not to be played around with, It will attract curse.If you can't get along with the metropolitan , Would you propose to dethrone him and install new of your choice?.
saji kassisha wants to please his metran coorilos and so proposes for a patriarchis in delhi,which is not possible.coorilos metran of patriarch is intelligent than flying metran of orthodox group.people in mumbai is not happy with metran and his coward kassishias as all are after cash and no work.
We need a little clarification about Mr. Joshy's comment.(proposal #4 says, as per the 1935 Consititution Malankara Church needs a Patriarch, so lets establish a Patrairch based in New Delhi) I understood that he is thinking-As per the 1934 Constitution, we need a father. We don't have a father as per this constitution. So lets find a father or BORROW one and place him in New Delhi and tried to connect him to Marthoma Sleeha and AD 52.
unity is not possible in malankara as saji kassisha prescribes.metrans of patriarch are more intelligent, clever,well educated and devoted than the metrans of orthodox.metrans of orthodox somehow get into then no accountability only living in lavish with believers money flying and etc etc.
@FyodorMy handle is MalankaraSyriacOrthodox. I am not Maalankara Syriac Voice and have nothing to do with that pulication.
Dear Vattaparmbilachen,What Sajiachen meant to say is, his 3year period in Bahrain parish is over. So now, he is happy to have 3 or more vicars over there.These kinds of Priests and Laity are the crux of problem in our Church.They are called to serve but doing lip service and self service.
Dear AllIt is impososible for the two to unite now! The unity in 1958 was only a Show or drama by the Jacobites/Partriarch as they did not have any existence by then!they played all tricks from 1958 until 2002 when they came to realise it is impossible for them to go along with S/C verdict of 1995!Now they are Seperate entity under 2002 society act!What can be acheived now are peace and harmony between the two by ending disputes over church property through cout cases!

Dear AllPatriarch,Pope and Catholicose are titles of similar meaning!In The early church Four sees of Roman Empire are Known as Patriarchs which means regionalhead of Bishops and Sees!So There is No need to have a Patriarch based in new delhi for IOC/MOSC.The Church Heads out side Roman Empire were known as Catholicose!It is better to have Catholicose based in Delhi rather than Kottayam!However Mafrian is a position under Syrian Partriarch for a greater Diocese,that title has nothing to with catholicose!
Let the case which shook Malankara before 100 years stay there. New issues have croppped up in America.A new kakashis-- Metran kakshi and Bav kakshi --have been formed there.ee suruyanikalude aryam apaaram thanne
I have somE proposals for saving universal Syrian Church1 Limit the jurisdiction of Antioch patriarch to Arab land and their Arab descendents whereever they are2. Anoint a new Patriarch for 1.1 billion Indians (Indians and people of Indian origin wherever they are) in New Delhi. 3. Let the Patriarch of India and Patriarch of Arabia mind own business without interference in each other's territory.4. The Patrairch of India be chosen from both Orthodox and Jacobite bishops by making suitabel amendments in the 1934 constitution.5. limiting the power of Antioch Patriarch to Arab land and estblishing an Indian patriachate are the needs of this century 6. Let the patraichs of both India and Antioch who are of equal satus meet once in 5 years. Let them anoint each other.7. The issue in Malankara wil be resolved NOW forever if the Antioch patrairch unilaterally declares that he limits his poweres to Arabs and their people everywhere.
Christ did not establish any Patriarchate in Antioch or in Rome. All these were done centuries later for the sake of Church administration (Church was growing fast in these important cities then). If church fathers create Patriarchates now, they would create them in America, India, China, Germany, Dubai, Africa, etc. Some people who do not want change will look only backwards. They will never see teh future. Whether we like it or not some Patriarchates will eventualy perish. Antioch is definitely one among them. It will not die an instant death, but will fade away... in this century itself.A new Patriarchate in India is also on the way
Long back Supreme Court appointed an observer for conducting an elction of Malankara Maetropolitan on the basis of term agreed upopn by both Jacobites and Orthodox. We all know what happened. Having lost cases miserably, Jacobite leaders fear that the courts will eventually rule in favour of the 1934 constitution in churches. The only way out is mediation. But at what cost? 1. Will the Orthodox church reliqish theior claim over churches estblished under the 1934 constitution?2. Will Orthodox church settle for deal outside SC rulings which upheld the 1934 constitution?3. The unity of churchis not going to happen by court's intervention. 4. Then how wil unity come?Unity will come slowly...A. By marrigeB. Young People moving away from villages will lose their local traditions. (An American lady who studied about Hiduism has said that many local deities in Hinduim will slowly die as peopel mover out of place.)C. The relation with Antioch will undergo drastic changes in this decade.D. Education, theoogical developments, freedom of thought .. all will pave the way for a lesser role for Antioch in India.E. Christinaity which was limited to Kerala is slowly growing as National. (An arab leadership will NOT be recognised by Indians)
The strongest faith in India is that Indian Church was establshed by ST THOMAS. The tradition in India was known as 'Marthomayude Margam.' So we have a FATHER ST THOMAS. Why should we want another Father? Why can't we elevate this post to the level we needed? The bishop of Rome was not called Pope for many centuries.When we have St Thomas tradition, there is no need for Mathai tradition or Peter tadition here. We should elevate the name of the person who sits on the throne of St Thomas to whatever level we want.Our fathers have established chapels, and we after some years , elevated it tochurch, valiayapally, cathedral.. and so on. Let Arabs mind their own business first.. their churches are in a state of decay. So let them correct themselves first and then think about Indians who are able to govern themselvs.
Dear Ebenezer,If Jacobites willingly and officially agree for UNITY, it will be very quick and fast, taking care of the intersts of Antioch, bishops in the Jacobite camp ..But if they do not agree and keep going like they did in the past decades, the Jacobite church will rejoin the mother church as bits and pieces. This slow process will take a couple of decades, without taking care of the interests of Antioch or their bishops. That stage has already BEGUN.
Innacha,Kali Orthodox sabhayodu venda.. We are moving towards the next century with an Indian vision..whereas your Jacobite leadership can look only BACKWARDS.Probably your Antioch leadership will seek OUR help. AND WE'LL RUSH TO HELP THEM, BUT WILL NEVER ENSLAVE THEM. The Salmoosas will be FREE DOCUMENTS, the ONLY bondage will be to CHRIST, the master shepherd.Can Indians accept an arab bondage?if HH Patriarch understands and agree for a unity, it will be good for HH. But if HH remains adamant , there will not be anyone with HH after a period, say 25 years.Hope good sese will prevail in Antioch
Dear RakeshThe Priesthood of Jesus Christ is not monopoly of Antiocchean Partriarch!Antiocheans(SOC) never preached gospel in India /China/or far east!Malankara Church MOSC is autonomus and Autocephalous church,which was accepted S/Cand later byL/L H.H.Yakkoob III in 1958!St.Thomas did not get any ordaination from Antioch or MOSC did not get any priesthood from your Antiochean Throne!It was The Present Jacobite Heirarchy who bring heretic teachings in Malankara after 1958 Unity, for self existence,survival and glory! Can you show any canon that Antiocheans really followed in Malankara!also try to learn What is Canon and when original canons were really came in practice!How come Coptic,Ethopian,Armenian churches are not under Antioch they are independant,autonomous and autocephalas! Yakkob Burdhana was ordianed in alexandrea! This does not mean that SOC/antioch are ever under Alexandrean or Coptic church!You don't know the origin of churches and still argue for nothing!
Dear RakeshFirst of all you should learn the elementary lessons of Christianity and Church!those who are calling for split in Church are not christians. When you talk about traditions and Canons(Non apostolic traditions non apostolic canons)you are totally forgetting Christ!Read 1 Corinth1:10-17,3:21-23;3:3-9 about early church and division /disunity and the advice of St.Paul to those people who were causing disunity in church!you must see and quote everything on the basis of early apostolic teachings/traditions or Scriptures!
DearShajiWho are always making cases against Churches?What is Church and why it is being closed?When people forget God and follow their own way God/creator keeps quiet for people to repent and turn back to God!However God's people(who claim to be true Christians or God's own people)never realise their mistakes/errors/ungodly ways and repent,turn back to God or cries for help from God!The reason for closed Churches/Disputed churches takes a lomg time to reopen because the people who are supposed to worship God in truth and spirit do not follow God or his ways!Both MOSC and Jacobites are going to face God's wrath for disputes and closing down the churches! Crucifying the Truth!let us both factions stop such ungodly ways first!
MOHAN MATHEW, I have somE proposals for saving universal INDIAN ORTHODOX Church1 Limit the jurisdiction of Kanjikuzhi Catholicose to Indian land only.2. The new generation of this denomination doesn't even like to come to church in other countries. 3. So that the big churches in New York and New Jersey arrange Biriyani and Chicken Fry every sunday to attract the new generation, but still no FALAM.4. The kids are asking who is Patriarch and who is Catholicose? Why they are coming here to rule us? Unfortunately they dont know the GUNAVADHIKARAM of Pathrose, Thomas and Paulose. In some extend, it is good too, because they dont need to get involved in this fight.5. What is the future of these churches after 50-60 years? No matter Jacobite or Orthodox. I believe it will be converted to Baptist, Methodist or Presbyterian Churches. 6. Is "Religious Vithesa Nukam" only applicable in Indian land? Or is that applicable in your churches in other countries too? If it is, please stay away from ruling those churches too. Because if a person wanted to be a US Citizen, he has to decare that he is abandoning all the allegiance to any foreign countries, no matter spiritual or political.7. I believe Jesus Christ and his desciples were born and raised in middle east and since they are middle eastern people, Kanjikuzhi Catholicose has to declare that the jurisdiction of the Christianity has to be limited in and around Israel and surrounding countries.
KapyarachayaYou don't worry about Indian Orthodox Church because we have a vision for FUTURE. You worry about your SELF-LIQUIDATING ARAB CHURCHREAD NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE and see for yourself what is hapening to your ANTYOOCHIA..(ANTHYAM)here is the link:http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/2009/06/arab-christians/belt-textRemember, National Geographic magazine , one of the best magazines in the world is not owned by orthodox church Hope now you will understand why others should rush to save this church
Kapyar has talked so much non-sense.he said: Because if a person wanted to be a US Citizen, he has to decare that he is abandoning all the allegiance to any foreign countries, no matter spiritual or political.What does he know about US? Milions of US citizens hold citizenship of oter countries. For example. Jews haev citizenship of US as well as Israel. Indians have been clamouring for DUAl ciizenship for long time. American law permits this, hope you understand Mr Kapyar.Now about Indian Church. We never wish to rul over Arab church or American church. Already Patriach has limited teh jurisdiction of jacobite church to India. But our brothren abroad are strong supporters of Catholicate unlike yours
PallikapyarWhat do you know about the growth of Baptist, Methodist or Presbyterian Churches in US? All these protestant chruches are showing a negative growth whereas Orhtodox churches have recorded the fastest growth. Religious statistics are publised every year in USA. You seem to be ignorant about many things
'Utharam muttumpol konjanam kuthuka'ennu kettittundu. Paranja karyangalkkonnum marupadi parayaathe, national geography yel pidickaathu monee.....we are trying to expose the contradictions of your Church's statements and actions. Please don't get mad, because according to your church, we are ONE. And the Jacobites has to leave their own Parishes and build new ones. When we were attempting to build our own Church in Parumala, trying to prevent it through Gundaism. GOOD LUCK AND GOD BLESS YOU BROTHER
Why can't we Malankara Nazranees have a decent, respectful dialogue? The problem with us is not Antioch, Devalokam, Patrairch or the Catholicose. The problem with us is ego. We are not willing to respect each other. We see things as black and white. Our side is 100% right and the other side is 100% wrong. We are not willing to think, even for 5-mintues, if my brother is disagreeing with me, maybe he has a point too. May be there are some cases where he is right and I am wrong. Nothing good is going to come to us, till we start to love and respect each other.

The fanatic leaders of Jacobite church in Kerala will never accept any peace proposals. What they want is their own empire in the expense of poor laymen with Antiochian Patriarch as a rubber stamp.What we have to do is that the laymen should unite for peace process avoiding the fanatic leaders. 90% of the laymen in both sides are peace loving people.Once the support of the laymen is not there,the 30+ bishops cann't financially survive.So let us unite together to avoid the leaders and be one church under the H.H.Catholicos of East& Malankara Metropolitan.Abraham Mattackal John
Dear kapyarachayaOnly Malankara Orthodox Church can help the sinking Antioch Church and their protege in INDIA called 'Jacobites' archdiocese. Supreme Court, the apex court of India, after studying cases, declared that there is ONE and only ONE MALANKARA church,. It is governed by 1934 constitution. catholicose or patriarch whover can only rule as per that. (Having lost the case miserably and without shame you call the official church a 'faction' and also other names.)If some of you want to build new church it is your freedom. BUT LEAVE ALL THE CHURCHES WHICH HAVE BEEN GOVERNED BY 1934 onstitution. We have no qualms about anyone leaving the chuch on their own. DON' think THAT YOU CAN TAKE THE CHURCH TOO to your 2002 or 2010 or 2050 'constitution'.So you build new church as per your 'constitution'.I can PREDICT one thing... IF Orthodox faith survies in India, it will slowly merge togther..IT WIL BE A UNITED FAITH. IT MAY TAKE DECADES, BUT THEN ANTIOCH WILL HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO ROLE THERE...THIS IS CHEIFLY BECAUSE THE FUTURE GENERATIONS OF CHRISTIANS WILL NOT ACCEPT THESE STUPID SLOGANS AND UNNECESARY SLAVE THEORIES THAT DOMINATE THEM. BUT THEY WILL LOOK AT THE ORTHODOX FAITH AS HOLY...WAIT & WATCH dear Kapyaarachaya..
Dear FrindsI want to correct some statement made by Mohanmathew regarding Antioch church.In Future, Orthodox will not only survive but will flourish absobing many belivers from other sister churches. Now teh Orthodox faith in India will have good relations with all ORTHODOX faith in the world, including the church in Antioch. But if they expect it to be a slavery relation, i can only sympathise with them. Therefore it is important for Antioch church to read the writing on the wall. Jacobits or Orthodox or Malnkara church need not worry.. because they wil be one in future.. Only Antioch nneds to worry about their role in India. Ff they unify the Indian churches they can enjoy a special status (but no MASTER - SLAVE relation.)If Antioch think they can continue like this, nobody can help them.. they will perish themsleves
mathew said... we shouldn't forget, how malankara church was protected in early centuries from extinction, it was the bishops from Antioch which took the malankara church & its preachers forward during times of crisis, it is important that malankara orthodox & Jacobite churches needs to be united & should go forward by having brotherhood & cooperation with other christian denominations to spread the real message of our JESUS CHRIST OF LOVE & PEACE!!!
@MathewRelation with Antioch is not very old. As you told , they had helped us. But the price we are paying i stoo much. Let bygones be bygones.Now it is time to pack them off. if we don't give them a peaceful send offour next generation will forcefully evict them

Dear NithinMalankara church was divided or split was made by Antiochean Patriarch Yakkoob III.As a Supreme head of SOC he was not supposed to create any division in Malankara Church!Malankara Church are followers of St.Thomas Way! We are not Syrians and Suriyani did not come in Malankara through W.Syriac/antioch! As Malankara Nazranis we are supposed to be one!MOSC cannot accept/recognise now SOC Partriarch as SOC partriarch behaved unchristian way in Malankara and made heresy through infamous Bull 203!the real cause of Disunity in Malankara created by SOC Head!As St.Thomas Christians(malankaranazranis) we can unite in Malankara and there is no surrender by anybody,but submission to God through Unity!
Dear SonuJosephYou must understand one thing,in Malankara St.Thomas Preached gospel and we are Malankara Nazranis or St.Thomas Christians!we are not under the see of SOC Partriarch!MOSC recognise SOC partriarch subject to its constituition! Jesus Christ did not appoint St.Peter as head of apostles or supreme authority of his church on earth!In Christ all apostles are equal and together as we are members/organs of the body of Christ!!Church is the body of Christ!Christ is the head of Church! Church is not Political party like Kerala Congress(m)and Joseph groups!Those who are calling for disunity and Division are not truly Christians!
Dear Nithin,Sonu JosephRead 1 Corinth 12:13,1 corin 3:11,22-23;1 corin4:15;1corin3:4-9and try to understand these verses the real meaning/sense!The present four church administration,overseesr(bishop)Elder(priest)/presbytor,deacon and laity are mentioned in epistles written by St.Paul!what you people are saying has no basis in Christianity!after a long fued/court cases, in 1958 there were unity and peace in Malankara church!How come this unity/harmony, disapper or disunity come in 1973?What are the cause? Who created division in Malankara? When St.thomas came in A.D.52 in Malankara, did he bring priests/bishops from Antioch? did he tell Malankara people that They are Syrian ChristianS/suriani christians?True Malankars Nazranis will never stand for/cause disunity in Malankara Church

Dear Malankara JSCYou must read Bible carefully! What Jesus Said To Simon Peter "Ber Yohna Simeon,You are Peter"! the word 'Petro' means Stone and not rock! This does not mean that St.Peter is is the rock!The True Rock Is Jesus Christ!Again What ever you are quoting in wedding cerememoney is not Jesus said That was later added/created by Syrian/antioch fathers after 5th centuary!What you said "Pathrosee nee parayakunnu"ennu oly in bible translated by kaniyam Parambil Chor Episcopa!You Read epistle of Ephesians 2:20 and galatians2:9 and 1Peter5:1(st.Peter claims he is co-elder among other Elders of early church)can you quote from bible any single word that Jesus Christ Appointed St.Peter as head of apostles or head of eartly church? It is the faith( read properly the scripture) Which St.Peter confessed on which Church is being built!For self existence,survival and power glory MJOSC church advocating heresy that is what you had quoted here above!so MJSC read bible thoroghly and properly!
Dear Malankara JSCJesus did not build his Church on St.Peter!Jesus built his Church on rock of Faith confessed By st.Peter! St.Peter confessed that Jesus is Son of Living true God,the father in heaven read bible thoroughly and clearly!Precisely in short in our mother toungue Malayalam "Viswaasamakunna paramel".The faith in true God must be deeper. Every sunday during Holy qurbana the priest recite this in our Eucharistic liturgy!Kindly read St.Luke,chapt.22 especially verses 24-34,then you will understand what Jesus Christ taught after Passover his apostles reagrding the Big or greatest among his Disciples!"Kannundayal pora kananam!"this apt here as you don't see or understand what is stated/written in Scriptures!
Dear MalankaraJSC When Jacobite Heirarchy went S/C and asked for a fresh election of Malankara Association or to reconvene Malankara association and S/C gave the verdict for new election under the supreme court observer Why did you people withdrew from such action and formed A soceity church to show you are seperate entity in 2002!in 1995 S/C asked both factions that they can appoint a tribunal outside the court for setllement of church feud why did you people did not agree to that?After S/C verdict SOC patriarch asked your heirarchy to agree to peace and unity in Malankara why did you reject that? Why did the bulls of SOC partriarch did not read in Churches or why did your Heirarchy in Malakara hide them?When supreme court asked for Peace settlement your heirarchy rejected it and now why you are bothering because of a lower court suggestion!Rejecting Higher court /supreme court verdicts and after elapse of time(12years) coming with new peace suggestion formula for what?
Anyone who thinks about the future of Indian church can easily know that Master-Slave relations with Arabs will not work anymore. Indians of 2010 AD are not like Indian swho live 100 years before.
Dear RaviGeorgeIn Christ there is no master/slave relationship!The future of Indian Christianity depend on Malankara Nazranis!Malankara Nazranis or their heirarchy are not bothered about future of malankara Church/Christianity in India ! What they really look upon the position ,power and Glory for selves!unfrotunately the SOC heirarchy is also on the same boat! They are not concerned about it! They care themselves!If there is a united Malankara Church in India SOC will not be benefitted! There fore they cause to split the church on unethical,unchristian way to suit their needs!if go the bible there were no disputes over throne/supremacy issue in the beginning!What had to with throne in Antioch with Christians in India?What had to do with priesthood of St.Thomas with throne in Antioch?The Malankara Christians or Nazranis should use their common sense and the word of God for a United church in India!
Dear Nidhin KallisseriThe Real problem in Malankara are not Syirian Christian /Suriyani Kristanikal! The real issues are (I) Throne in Antoch(which have no basis in Bible)(II)Supremacy of ANTIOCH Patriarch(SOC).(III)Stuaticon/Shamoulsa of SOC/antioch Partriarch Etc,ETC-none of these issueas are not biblical and are against Christ's teachings!these are the Unchristian ego by Jacobites!If they leave those unethical and Non Christian Practices there are no problems in Unity and harmony in Malankara!St.peter preached Jesus Christ the savior! St>thomas preached Same! All apostles preached the same! so in christ there is no syrian.jews or gentile or antiochean or indian
UNITY IS A DAY DREAM IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN.IF RESPECTED Patriarch HAS RESPECTED DECOMARACY IN MALANKARA HE WOULD HAVE BEEN THE STRONG CHRISTIAN LEADER IN WORLD.
Dear LajyWho is this respected Patriarch to be repected?When did This Partriarh came in Malankara!Jesus did not appoint patriarch to be supreme authority in His church!In the Name of Throne and patriarch you are rejecting Jesus the Supreme Almighy !What democracy you are talking and preaching here?All is One man show in your Society,and then preaching democracy!Jesus Christ had 12 Apostles and none of them were head or supreme among them!
Dear Lagy,I did not get the second part of your posting on Jan 5. When you say 'Unity will never happen', you are talking against Holy Spirit. The Bible says His Church will become ONE. But we do not know how this will happen. A few years back, Thomas Pradhaman Thirumeni said in PuthenKurissu "EE SABHAKAL ORIKKALUM ONNAAKILA" . Thsi was reported in Manorama daily.Some years back, while I was a student in Catholicate College, I went inside a department to get my practical record book signed. There was soem hot discussion going on between some teachers. I heard one young lecturer telling "within a few years all this priesthood will end". After some years I came to know that young lecturer died as an alcoholic. Sadly, he was son a Cor Episcopa!Nobody can predict tomorrow. We do not know how Christ wil unify His bride. So be careful when we speak words
Dear Mohnan MsathewIt was so interesting that 'The Statement by H.B. Thomas I' "Sabhakal orikkalum yojikkilla"which was reported by Manorama Daily sometimes back as per your comment on Jan5th,2011.If Sabha(church) is body of Christand Christ is head of Church this statement itself is entirely baseless! we don't see Church(Sabha) as body of Christ! we see as different groups or factions attacking each other for position/power/seats/thrones/ and Church propertiers!We do not fully grasp the meaning of Church! We do not realise or recognise the truth at all!All the time H.B.thomas I group only talk about allegiance to throne in Antioch!I never heard them talking Christ the true God who became man!As long as We do not really recognise the truth that we are memmbers/organs of BODY OF CHRIST,the feud will continue in Malankara!

Dear EldhoseYou always talk/write without any logic/common sense!MOSC did not trick you people!It was your Holy Patriarch and your Fathers in Malankara who showed betrayel and greediness!Can you show evidence from Bible That Jesus appointed anybody as Patriarch or Supreme authority in his earthly church?can you show any evidence as from A.D.52 Malankara was under see of Antioch? can you show any evidence from bible that St.Peter established throne in Antioch?you are so ignorant and you just follow blindly antioch throne and patriarch!first of all you learn what is church(Sabha) basically!then write/comment using common sense!
Dear Malankara JSC and other Jacbites Brethern:it is all about St.Peter and Keys of Kingdom of Heaven!In Greek, Peter is Petros(stone)which is related to Petra(rock).this means something which is hard/strong used for construction of buildings!Peter's confession:-Jesus as Messaiah(you are Christ, the son of Living True God).Jesus response statement did not mean that Peter would have greater authority than other11apostles!Nor it did mean that he(peter)would be infallible in his teachings!St.Paul correct him publically(Galatians 2:11-14)Nor It imply anything special about Peter or his successors to present Church/eccleastic administration or office!Although St.Peter has a central role (leader/spokesman) in early church but still he is being sent by other apostles to Samaria(acts 8:14)The Church is being built on fondation of Apostles and Prophets,Jesus Christ himself is the Cornerstone(Ephes 2:20)Keys of Kingdom of Heaven: Heaven is not an office/house which can be closed or opened by human beings.We Must Understand the real meaning of Heaven in the real sense!Peter is given the authority to admit entrance into the kingdom through preaching gospel!This authority was subsequently granted to all apostles who are called to proclaim the gospel(Mathew 20:18-20)Again the authority of forgiving sins(john 20:21)it is given to all apostles! Although Jesus breathed on them after resurrection to receive the Holy Spirit,The Holy Spirit was filled among them on day of Pentacost! There fore all Disciples(apostles)have the authority to forgive sins!The "word Kills But the Spirit gives life" People blindly take the lteral meaning! They don't look the Spiritual meaning of Word of God!
Somebody wrote in the IOC "malankara sabhapathrika" that a united Malankara Sabha (Bava kakshi+methraan kakshi) will be the most powerful community in kerala, politically, ecnomically and socially. Is it true, or just a proud fancy?

Dear BonyNow A days Every episcopal Christian sects create Titles such as Catholicose,Pope,pr Patriarch to show own glory,position and power!Christ did not Appoint Catholicose,Pope or Patriarch to Consecrate Holy Mooron.In the early Church, Elders or overseers(Kassiso/priests) used to do that spiritual requirements!The question here is That whether two factions of orthodox church in Malankara should unite or stay divided? can you contribute something constructive to this subject/ point?

Att.BonyThe Unity if Divided Church is based on draft proposalfor a protocol between SOCA and MOSC!Also based on protocoal betweenCoptic church and Ethiopean Church and Coptic church and Eriterian Church!THe Most important fact is that church is Body of Christ and we are members/organs of the body of Christ!Jesus Christ is the head of Church!This fundemental/ basic teachings are forgotten by both factions in malankara!Those who are dividing church on the basis of position and power and self glory are not real Christians!if Churches in Egypt(coptic)Ethiopea(abysinea)and Eriteria can reach a common treaty why can't the two factions in Malankara follow similar treaty?

Dear BonyOrthodox Herald is conducting an an opinion poll about unity in Malankara church!I am sure they are forwrading the suggestions to Episcopal Synod of MOSC!The Leadership of both side will never agree to Unity but now it is the wish or desire of laity to have peace in Malankara!at the same time both factions leadership are aware of this draft proposal of unity!
I have a request to the editors of Malankara Orthodox TV. Rather than asking the question; should we unite to divide; Please ask the question, identify 5 things that you see is very good with the other faction and 5 things that are not so good in your own faction.The first thing needed is to cultivate, love and respect for each other. Once there is love, peace and unity will defenitely follow.

Dear Malankara syriac orthodoxwhwn you talk about peace and love,first think about it,who destroyed the love and peace in malankara!When Jacobite faction heirarchy is publically telling that IOC/MOSC are enemies and jacobites should not partake in Holy Eucharist of MOSC,what peace/love you are preaching or expecting from them! This does not mean MOSC are blameless or 100%percent perfect!further more division in Malankara are not created by MOSC!Division came due to selfish and vested interest and greediness of some so called spiritual leaders!First of all try to understand the term "church" in the real sense.Those who does not understand it call for division and disunity!
I am an Orthodox and I am ready to accept Syriac Orthodox Patriarch of Antioch as the spiritual father of our church as mentioned in 1934 Constitution. But Syriac Orthodox Patriarch of Antioch should accept our Catholicose as his equal and leave all the decisions concerning Malankara Church to Malakara Association, Malankara Episcopal Synod and the Catholicose. If Jacobites are willing to unite based on this agreement, I am all for unity. But if not, my view is that we can divide peacefully. The churches where there are dispute, percentage of faithful belonging to the both factions should be ascertained, faction with most faithful gets the original church properties and the other faction gets an amount proportional to their percentage size. The cemetry issue is a non-solvable issue as the forefathers of faithful of both factions are buried there and most faithful want to be buried at the place of their forefathers. So cemetry can be shared using time arrangement with two factions using different times. In any case, I want to see this dispute to be over once and for all. Our Catholicose should start having talks with Patriarch of Antioch and should develop cordial relations with each other and we should try to accept Patriarch faction in Malankara as our fellow church with warm relations. Only then we will start acting the way Christ taught us to do.

Dear Bony,You say that since the Syro-Malankara has a Catholicose the Syro-Malabar may now install a Patriarch. Honestly the head of the Syro-Malabar and Syro-Malankara Rites have the same rank with in the Catholic hierarchy. They are both Major Arch Bishops. The Major Arch Bishop of Syro Malankara just claimed a title that no body including the Pope had given him. Actually the head of Syro Malabar is not only a Major Archbishop but also a Cardinal. So the head of Syro Malankara can take whatever title he wants, as it stands now in the Catholic hierarchy the head of the Syro Malabar has a higher rank than the head of Syro Malanakra.I just said that for your information. We dont have to worry about what they do there.Let us focus on how we can foster, love, mutual respect , peace and ultimately unity among the Orthodox Christians of Malankara.
ok Ebenezar thnx
Am also willing to accept, the Patriach as the SPIRITUAL head of the Malankara Orthodox Church. That has always been the stance of the IOC. Remember, it is the jacobite faction, themselves, that estrange us from the Syrian chruch. Through their various publications and policies like, not having communion from IOC priests, brawling that we are excommunicated etc etc ....
Dear All,What Mr. Manu has said about the peace and love in Malankara Sabha by the grace of God is absolutely a practicble solution, which has already implemented at the Kaniyampetta Church in Wayanad. This should be the mechanism for all dusputed and closed churches throughout in Kerala including Thrikkunnathu seminary, Kolenchery pally, Kadamattam pally etc. See the following Sites: (1): http://www.malankarasyriacvoice.com/2011/News/Kaniampatta.JPG(2): http://www.malankarasyriacvoice.com/2011/News/kaniyambetta.mangalam.jan18.PNG(3): http://www.malankarasyriacvoice.com/2011/News/kaniyambetta.mano.jan18.PNGJoshy
Dear Pallikapyaryou should not get annoyed or disturbed yourselves!Your own jacobite people started it first calling names or using illicitor abusive language especially in blog commentsof MOTV, in addresing our head of church ,their place of residency and even our fathers who had left their earthly abode here!Even now your official publications(jacobite church) are using the same style and language! As christians both factions should not involve in those kind of activities, abusive language! Then What you quoted fron Bible still applicable to you and your own church also!St.Paul said in his episle to Romans "There is no one who is righteous,no who is worshipping God in righteoes Way,All have turned away from God,they have all gone wrong"So first correct self,then correct others!
Bony,In apostolic christianity there are only three priestly orders:1) Deacon2) Priest3) BishopArch Bishop, Catholicose, Patriarch, Pope etc are all Bishops and in that sense equals. But for administrative purpose there are first among equals. The first among the equal will chair the Synod. There is no question of who is superior and inferior. Regarding the question of first among equals there is no confusion with in the Orthodox Syriac tradition. If sometime in the future, the Roman church were to reject all their heresies including the Tome of Leo and confess the true faith of the three councils, then the Bishop of Rome (Pope) will have the position of first among equals, in the whole Church.
Dear PallikapyarIt is not MOSC people who are proud! It is your own Jacobite Church,heirarchy,clergy and some laymen who are proud and show that everywhere where they live!(i)calling yourselves as Jacobite but never show any attitude or gesture of Jacob Bardius(yakkob burdhana (ii)Throne of antioch: There is no mention about it in the new testament by any apostles!Jesus gave throne to his apostles each carefully read gospel according to Luke 22:28and study well!(III)Priesthood: Priest hood of Jesus Christ is eternal and he gave to all 12 Apostles! also refer Holy Qurbana song "adyaacharyawtham Kaikonduu,Aharon moosahayodinnichu........Yohannan karthavinnum,Kartha than sleehanmarkum"(iv)Supremacy of St.peter:- St.Peter claimed himself as a Co-eleder among other elders of early church(iPeter5:1)and a bondservant of Jesus Christ!(v) Church of Christ were formed in Jerusalem and Jerusalem is the Mother Church!Antioch is not mother Church as allegedly claimed by Jacobites!The first council of early church decisions were written and handed over to St.Paul and Barnabas to deliver to Antioch and the council were presided by James,the Cousin brother of Jesus Christ,who was the first Bishop of Jerusalem! After the council,Paul and Timothy,delivered to the believers the rules decided upon by the apostles and elders in Jerusalem(church in Jerusalem)and told them to obey those rules!(to continue)
Dear Pallikapyar(part II)Jacibites in Malankara formed a society in Puthencruz in 2002 to show and convince public they are seperate from MOSC as well as to escape from S/C verdict and get exempted in paying courtfees!So if people call you as a society,why should you get annoyed! You think only Jacobites are saints, sinless,pure and true Christians!Your fathers in the past did hire killers and killed many innocent people of MOSCprior 1958! now who hired Killers? who hid them in churches? who used Charity money to hire killers?However if you were true Christians you could have showed and proved people in Malankara by your actions!even you yourselves called,MOSC head as KANJIKKUZHY CATHOLICOSE! You are Are another HYPOCRYTE! first remove log from your own eyes and then try to remove speck from neighbours eyes!Jesus said to Pharsee and scribes that tax collectors/and adulterers will enter/inherit the Kingdom of God but the scribes and Pharisee would not do that! by your own actions in this blog you have proved yourselves who are snakes or discendants of snakes!
Some great men gave me a “PATTAM” hypocrite here. If I was a hypocrite, ninne okke theiri vilichittu njaaanum paranjene , “SAMADHANAM” “ANURANJANAM” ennellam. But I did not do that, because I believe that I don’t deserve it. I am a sinner and I am not eligible to look at the face of my Almighty Father. “Chunkakkarum vesyakalum ningalkku munpe swarga raajyathil kadakkum” ennu Dhaivam parayunnu. “ Ee manal tharikalil ninnu Abrahaminu makkale srishtikkuvan thaivathinu kazhiyum” ennu Yohannan snaapakan parayunnu. I BELIEVE THAT “PARAYN” “PULAYAN” AND “VETTUVAN” WILL ENTER IN THE HEAVENLY KINGDOM BEFORE WE ENTER. I am not here for an argument and I heard a story about Mahatma Gandhi, when I was in the school. There was a mother brought her son to Gandhi to advise him against eating too much sugar and sweets. Gandhi asked her to bring him back after one month. And lady brought the son after one month and Gandhi advised him about the bad side effects of eating too much sugar and lately the child discontinued that bad habit. Later Gandhi was asked about why he said to come back after one month and he said, he himself has that bad behavior and he need to stop it before advising others. My Orthodox brothers and sisters, create the atmosphere of peace and harmony before doing anything. (manasantharathinu thakka falam kaykkuvin) Then talk about the peace and people will listen you.
Dear PallikapyarWhen I stated the Truth you wrote that you are given a Title(pattam)!"Vadi koduthu adivangichittu" then write/comment something for what?You don't need to repeat once again Holy words from Bible here! The repentence is required by both faction followers!MOSC did not come to attack you or used abusive words/language! It was Jacobite people from the beginning used abusive languages/words in MOTV Blog comments!You should first of all relinquish your big mentality/gesture(Valliatten)!That be: You people can do,say or act anything the way you would like do/wish! at the same time MOSC should keep quiet just like Small children!hatred or enemity are done and created by your Church/people in Malankara!You /Yourseves not shown any gesture /mentality of reconciliation/unity !then Why did you critisize others?All Blog created by MOTV your people abused MOSC or its heirarchy/clergy!In 1958 the reconciliation /peace movement shown by your people or Antioch PatriarchL/L Yakkob III were mere drama for self existence your faction!Had your Church heirarchy really followed any Bible teachings/ principles in solving the Church fued in Malankara for the last 100 Years? I have already told/informed my Church heirarchy about my stand for peace and reconcilation in church feud especially the disputed/closed churches in Malankara!So God knows my mind/concsious and attiude/gesture! I am not great or big man! I am not blamess/sinless!
Dear Pallykapyaryou try to watch some vedeos in Youtube uploaded by your fellow jacobites"the ex-communicated garbage club(patmvow)and kanjikuzhi katholica and children in sehion malika(shinosphilip)under banner Malankara jacobite Church songs!these are the work of so called followers of "Yakkoob burdhana" in Malankara and the way they are doing /behaving!Sons and daughters of True living God!shame on you people!Also go through varius blogs of MOTV then you can realise how your own fellow people are behave in public through media!! Then judge others!In the name of peace,unity or reconciliation MOSC are not showing contempt and hatred!Your people are inviting those through their actions /comments or inciting our people to do that!

Dear KannadiWe know what had happened in the past,we know the reason/circumstances why Jacobite Heirarchy submitted to High Court a panel of Mediators of their choice for peace!There is another court case in which they poured Hotwater on a MOSC priest who was going to celeberate the Holy Qurbana,they also beated him thoroughly over his head!This how followers of Jacob Burdhana in Malankara worship Christand behave themselves!These are people at the same time call MOSC as brood of vipers and tell MOSC people to repent!According to Pallikapyar all the people of his faction church are sinless and blameless!MOSC are sinners/immoral, and then we invite/call them(jacobites) for reconciliations without an aura of peace!But I Pray sincerely that God will unite Malankara christians one day for his Glory !
"URANGUNNAVARE UNARTHAM, URAKKAM NADIKKUNNAVAREYOO?Dear Brother Vincent, This is just a verbal argument behind the curtain. Lets both disclose our identity here and have a telephone conversation directly. I can clarify you directly instead of showing "Kasarathu". We are more interested to do a direct deal instead of anonymous writings. Hope "EVERYBODY" will realize it soon. Let me know.
ഏതൊരു സമൂഹത്തിലും മോശമായി സംസാരിക്കുകയും പെരുമാറുകയും ചെയ്യുന്ന ആള്ക്കാരുണ്ട്. പക്ഷെ അത് അവരുടെ തന്നെ സ്വഭാവ ഗുണത്തെയാണ് കാണിക്കുന്നതെന്ന വസ്തുത പലപ്പോഴും മറന്നു പോകുന്നു. പ്രത്യേകിച്ചും ഒരു കൂട്ടം മനുഷ്യരുടെ നേതൃത്വം വിവേക ശൂന്യരും കാപട്യം നിറഞ്ഞവരും ദുര്മോ ഹികളുമായാല് അവര് താഴുക തന്നെയല്ല മറ്റുള്ളവരെയും സാരമായി അത് ബാധിക്കുകയും ചെയ്യും. ഇതാണ് ഇന്നത്തെ യക്കൊബായക്കാരുടെ പ്രശ്നം, മലങ്കര സഭയുടെയും. പാത്രിക്കീസു ബാവായ്ക്കും അന്ത്യോക്യായ്ക്കും കീ ജയ് വിളിക്കുന്ന ഇവര് അദ്ദേഹത്തെ അനുസ്സരിക്കാത്തവരും വഴക്കടിക്കുന്നവരുമാണെന്ന് ആനുകാലിക സംഭവങ്ങള് ചൂണ്ടിക്കാട്ടുന്നു. ഈ നേതാക്കളുടെ 'മാസ്മര'വിദ്യയാല് ചതിക്കുഴിയില് കിടക്കുന്ന ഒരുപാട് നല്ലവരായ മനുഷ്യര് യാക്കൊബായക്കാരുടെ ഇടയിലുണ്ട്. ഒരിക്കല് പാത്രിക്കീസ്സു ബാവാ തന്നെ പ്രശ്ന പരിഹാരം നടത്തിയതാണ്. പക്ഷെ ദുര്മോഹികള്ക്ക് അതിഷ്ടമായില്ല. അവര് പ്രശ്നങ്ങള് വീടും കുത്തിപ്പൊക്കി. സമാധാനം ആഗ്രഹിച്ച പത്രിക്കീസ്സു ബാവായെ അവര് കുരുക്കിലാക്കി, അങ്ങനെ മലങ്കര സഭയെയും. മലങ്കര സഭയെ എത്ര മാത്രം നാറ്റിക്കാന് ശ്രമിച്ചാലും അന്തിമ വിജയം ഇവര്ക്ക് കിട്ടുകയില്ലെന്നു ഓര്ക്കുന്നത് നല്ലതായിരിക്കും. പുത്തെന്കുരിശു സൊസൈറ്റിയുടെ നേതൃത്വം നല്ലൊരു ജനക്കൂട്ടത്തെ തിന്മയിലേക്ക് നയിക്കുകയാണെന്ന വസ്തുത കാലം തെളിയിച്ചു തരും.
Dear PallikapyarNobody is pretending to be sleeping!everybody is awake!there is all possibility of open dicussion in the precious/ glorious Name of our redeemer Jesus Christ!Know Christ then there is peace!No Christ there is no peace!let the two factions in Malankara come together and pray in Jesus's name! Then God will hear our prayers!In the absence of that no need of mediators or reconciliation !

Dear AllThis Year(2011)Thrikkunnathu Seminary Perunnal for security arrangements the police dept of Kerala spent 8 Laks rupees as per Mathrubhoomi Daily!This amount police dept is going to charge both factions of church in Malankara!Are we consider this unnecessary spending only for 10 minutes Incence prayer at the tomb of late/lamented Holy fathers!No body can enter in the church or chapel for prayers or liturgical service!Are we Christians? are we children of God?Do we follow Christ?Jesus will never accept these incence prayers at the tomb out of hatred and contempt! Realise the truth!one of the faction claims that more than5000 people participated in the feast of late holy fathers!Surely none of this people are going to inherit the kingdom of God as there were no peace or harmony in the prayer service or incence prayers!Stop all this mimick and repent!
Dear Zach George ArapuraIf We (laity )come together and we have to pressure on this type of clergy to understand and know Christ!This is root cause of all troubles in Malankara! This clergy should read understand What Jesus said in Mathew 5:38-41,rather than take the sword himself!Let us Pray together for Changing their attitude!
@ Zach VargheseTheir will indeed be no unity.. people who write NONSENSE in SOCM YAHOO forum also should stop spewing venom ... Compare SOCM with ICONCompare Vishwasasomrakshakan with Malankara Sabha PatrikaCompare Syriac Voice with MoTVCheck out all the bloody videos on Youtube And LET ME KNOW, who is spewing venom ?
Dear All Majority of MOSC people are for unity!They are not for Dusunity or for War! Please read the news of SABHA SAMADHANA SAMITHI resolutions at Kochi recently!May Almighty God help us to maintain peace and harmony among Malankara Syrian Christians!
One of my friend from the Orthodox faction told me after hearing the speach at Manjikara that our Gregorios Thirumeni should be renamed as Joseph Mar Gibbels. I don't know why he said until I heard this speach. Personally Thirumeni don't you feel this was a bit extra. I feel he forgot where he speaking and what the occassion was. I somehow felt that he was trying to impress on our Shreshta Bava to become our next Bava. Mar Diascoros was also not far behind. But can he be considered to become the next catholicose

Sahodaranmaar Otthorumicchu Vasikkunnathu......THAT IS PEACEFirst let the rebels in the Jacobite camp understand the meaning of PEACE.Peace is not required for division. Peace and Division are NOT compatible. PEACE is required only for UNITY. What is the meaning of Peace witout UNITY.We read in the Bible that Christ is the Prince of PEACE. Church is HIS BRIDE, His indivisible BODY. Who has the right to DIVIDE it?If we can make Peace, why not UNITY? The enemies of UNITY and PEACE are enemies of Christ. God wil wipe them out. Soem people want to spread teh idea that PEACE and UNITY are impossible
SUPPOSE If Christ returns tonight, what wil be His priority, UNITY or DIVISION?Let the Antioch Patrarch, HH Paulose II Catholica Bava, HB Thomas I Thirumnei together call for UNITY and PEACE if they are TRUE FOLLOWERS of CHRIST
Divisiion comes from SATANUNITY with Peace comes from GOD.
'Peace' comes not from the absence of conflict in life but from the ability to cope with it. -George Achen,Ireland.
I wish these bishops had learned the following holy verses from the Bible Mat 5:9 and 1 Cor 13:13.
ഇദ്ദേഹം തിരുമേനിയോ രാഷ്ടീയക്കാരനോ? ഒരു ധ്യാന പ്രസം ഗം നടത്തുന്നതിനു പകരം വിഷം കുത്തി വയ്ക്കുന്നു.
I dont know y or wat 4 unneccesarily v r creating troubles for jacobites..i think whatever they are telling or whatever mar joseph gregorios told is true only...its a fact which we should admit that we should be seperated or should stand as different churches....I m sure if v unite also it will never lasts for long
"Our effort should be to restore peace in the church, not to run away from the church. Our suggestion is that both sides should make some compromises so that the integrity of the church is not affected. We should not try to aggravate our differences by going on litigation. We exhort you to pray hard for peace and unity in the church, this being the season of lent. May the grace and blessings of the Almighty continue to be showered on us." H.G. Kuriakos Mar Gregorios (Pampady Thirumeni)

Friends,Really sad! Really very sad indeed to see both our Bishops their Graces Mor Gregorios and Mor Diascorous forgetting the solemn occasion of the Dukhrono of H.H. Elias III Bava, in which both these Bishops was partaking and it was certainly sad to see that not a word in their speeches were reflected from the Bible or on the teachings of Jesus or on the exemplary life of the Saints which the faithful who had gathered for this solemn function should take up for the their Spiritual nourishment. Most of the faithful went back with the seeds of hatred and the pangs of jealousy planted in them by the reverend bishops. Thanks to the Bishops. Our LORD alone knows how these bishops will give account for their acts and hate inspiring speeches in the day of resurrection and judgment. How can we stand behind these bishops in prayer? From the video the way H.G. Mor Gregorios flattered H.B. Thomas1 and kept looking at him after each sentence of flatter, gave most of us the impression that H.G. Mor Gregorios was soaping and buttering H.B. Thomas 1for the Successor post. -Page 2Isaac Joseph. K.
Page 2But, why inject venom and hatred among our people and keep dragging the faithful mentioning that people are the strength? H.B. Mor Diascorous is not way behind as he with expertise slowly and very slyly injected poison into our faithful. Don’t these bishops read the Bible and sincerely pray? Or are they not aware of the love Jesus speaks in the Bible? Sure they do not, because they do not have the time to read the Bible and Pray as they are engaged in attractions of this world and have no time to take up the Cross and follow our LORD. These Bishops are out here to instigate the majority of our poor faithful who yearn for peace with our brethren and relatives. REAL SHAME ON OUR HIGH PRIESTS. If it was the High Priest who instigated the people and demanded the Crucification of Jesus around 2010 years ago, today in these speeches we find the same High Priests in the form of Mor Gregorios and Mor Diascorous in their speeches who instigate the people and demand to crucify Jesus’ Church in Malankara founded by his apostle St. Thomas. Not a word of Christian love or Christian living or Christian sharing or dedicated heart moving prayers could be heard from the mouth of these Bishops on this great occasion in both their 32 minute speech put together.Shame on our High Priests. Really shame. Let God be the Judge.Isaac Joseph. K.
Jacobite Church already got a separate constitution, an independent system. They are already separated and is considered an 'independent' Church. Then, why they want to divide Malankara Chucrh? That means a Church which is already an independent wants to cut a portion of the Malnkara Church and merge with the existing Jacobite Church. Why should it be allowed?Le them look at the DANGER of doing it...If the Jacobites wants to remain and exist as an independent, let the forfeit their claims in Malankara Church. This is what marthoma Church did and they survived.Now if the Jacobites with their 'constitution' keeps fighting the Orthdox Church, they face the fate of total liquidity in the near future.
Last two times (1958 and 1970), the unity was achived quicky after the court veridct. But this kind of quick merger did not happen after the Supre Court verdict in 1995. Now 15 years haved passed. next merger will be last and final. That is why it is taking a long time. All the isseus are slowly being discuused and when the merger is over no issue will remain. LET US NOT LOSE CONFIDENCE. LET US KEEP PRAYING FOR UNITY AND PEACE

Don't speak Vedam to Buffalo's which means Pothinody Vedum Otharuthey.How can you expect these Terrorist Bishops to speak about peace and Bible on the occasion of Manjinikara Perumal. After Abdulla he was at the helm of affairs for 15 years. What was the status in Malankara during his time. If he had the slightest concern for the people of Malankara he would have negotiated for peace. Even when he came to die where he diedwas he interested in it. Never. Then how can one expect to hear messages with peace. Remember what our Lord has said in St.Mathew 10:41. So those people who receiveth such a man will get his qualities. That is all what Gregorios and Diascors did.
Dear AllThe present Jacobite Church Faction and its heirarchy and some Brigadiers/chevelliars don't like any unity!They only want to get share in MOSC properties/churches!For this sharing they need peace or mediators! leave them alone!Those people think they are the only sacred people of Christ!But they don't follow the way of Christ!They think church is a political party and they work like poiticians!May almighty God convince them about Truth and Way!

It seems that Jacobite rebel leaders have already lost their morale and strength. Faithful know if they continue to follow them, they would soon fall into a big pit. It is believed that impossible for Jacobite rebel leaders to regain the confidence they lost.Public talk about many issues like playing emotional games, CBI investigation & chargesheet in Malankara Varghese case, 'Procedures' in the selection of Bishops, Media manipulations, power struggles among bishops, Autocratic methods of one metran, subservience to foreigners, misappropriations of church funds, Delimiation of Arch Dioceses of America, Europe, Gulf etc, Increasing legal expenses, growing people-to-peopel contact between Orthodox & Jacobites, fading glory of Antioch, awareness of LIBERTY, and National identity of INDIA, Economic independence, theological and spiritual advancements, Continuous success of Othodox Church in various isseus....People say all these issues had an impact. Are they the exact reasons? ONLY TIME WILL TELL
NithinThis Church has a constitution unanimously acpted by all. Even Thomas I bav of teh jacobiet Church gave an affidavit in court that he goes by that. teh broken away groups of Jacobies had rejoined the Church accepting the 1934 constitution in 1958 and 1970. Whatever position they claim due to Patriarch and Antioch is due to this constitution ONLY. teh Supreme Court too upheld it. Now certain Jacobiet leadfers broke away and formed a 'constitution' in 2002. You tell who broke away form whom?
SUPREME COURT has made it clear that ANTIOCH leader patriarch does not ahave any temporal powers in India. Whatever power authorised by the Supreme Court was due to 1934 constitution ONLY. So the Antioch Patriarch is bound by the 1934 constitution. 1934 Constittion REINS. Patriarch cannot interefer in Malnkara violatingthis constitution. Patriarch is governed by this constitution.
Nithin,I feel it is Knananayakar
The secret payment of Patriarch Elias Shaker for denying the Assyrian genocide SeyfoDid you know that the Syrian Orthodox Patriarch Elias III Shaker secretly got paid by Turkey to deny Seyfo and to stay loyal to the republic? New documents previously classified show that our church leaders played a bigger role than we have known, when the Assyrians were deprived of their minority rights in Turkey. Journalist Augin Kurt has taken a closer look at what has been revealed in the new documents. In 1892, nearly 300 000 Syrian Orthodox Christians in Afghanistan converted to Islam. Reason: The rivalry between the Patriarchates in Mardin and Turabdin.The Christians in Afghanistan belonged to the secessionist church of Turabdin, which was no longer able to supply them with priests. What is remarkable is that the then Patriarch of Antioch, who had his residence at the Zafaran monastery, is said to have cooperated with the Ottoman Sultan Abdul Hamid II to ensure that the congregation of Afghanistan converted to Islam.30 years later, another Patriarch allowed himself to be purchased by the parliament of the new Turkish Republic for 5,000 schillings (kurush) a month. His quid pro quo: To deny the genocide Seyfo and show unconditioned loyalty to the Republic. He would also let his subjects in Mardin and Turabdin remain under Turkish sovereignty as the map of the Middle East was redrawn by the great powers France and Great Britain. The Patriarch was Elias III Shaker, who also played a crucial role in making the Lausanne Treaty a Turkish victory.The story is told by history scientist Jan Beth-Şawoce in a TV program on www. acsatv.comJan Beth-Şawoce has access to recently released minutes from the Turkish parliament's early years, which have been classified until recently. As enough time had passed for the classification to be lifted, the documents were published in four volumes. This is what it says in a decision from 1921:

Exactly which role the Patriarch at the Zafaran monastery played in the conversion is difficult to say, since many records from that time have not yet been translated, says Jan Beth-Şawoce. But he says that it is well known that the rivalry between different factions of the Church meant that they wanted to gain the Sultan's favor, by undermining the other faction. The same approach is practiced even today in our churches, but also among our secular organizations.Admittedly, the secessionist Patriarch in Turabdin had reunited with the Patriarchate already 50 years earlier, but apparently there was still some rivalry after nearly 500 years of separation. Peace agreements were made five times and were then broken again, writes Bishop Yuhanon Dolabani.Turabdin seceded in 1364 when the then patriarch Ishmael banished an elderly bishop in Turabdin after an obscure testimony from a monk. Even today, nobody knows what lies the young monk Gewargis had told about the old bishop Baselios of the diocese of Saleh. The result was a trivial issue becoming the cause of a split within the Syrian Orthodox Church, which lasted for 475 years until 1839, when maferyono Ablahad Beth-Kande from Enhil signed a peace agreement with the Patriarch Elias II in the presence of the governor of Omid. Maferyono Ablahad thereby gave up his future patriarchy in Turabdin in favor of the unity of the church. He was assassinated by a Kurd in March 1844. (Maferyono is the second highest office after the patriarch).In some minorities, the religious leaders have a powerful authority over their people. With power comes of course also a great responsibility for the people's future. When a leader fails to take his responsibility, it can have devastating effects. History bears witness to several such cases, not only among our patriarchs, but also among other nations. So did for example the Jewish Rabbi Chaim Rumkowski in the city of Lodz in Poland during World War II. He let himself be bought by the Nazi Germans and betrayed his people, whose young boys he sent to their deaths. When the Germans no longer needed the services of the Rabbi, they "kicked" him in the butt. Then he got to experience "the ultimate humiliation at the Łódź ghetto - the forced self-annihilation" as it is expressed in a review of the book The poor of Lodz by the newspaper Svenska Dagbladet. The author of the book, Steve Sem-Sandberg, received the prestigious August Prize last fall for his excellent work.The reviewer Mikael van Reis writes in the newspaper:Rumkowski himself is the dark prism of this discription - he is both savior and traitor, patriarch and puppet, but eventually a humiliated jester king of hell. He taps into his subjects that this is not a ghetto, but a worker’s town. Work will set them free.Himmler's intention was of course the opposite. Extermination through work. The Jews would contribute to their own destruction and Rumkowski became the Nazis’ conductor. This forced self-destruction is the ultimate humiliation - it is precisely what Sem-Sandberg points to in his novel.
Despite the Nazis' extermination attempt, many Jews survived and could eventually settle in their own country. For the Assyrians, it was worse. Our nation was smahed into pieces by the genocide Seyfo and has since not been able to recover.The role of collaborators, which some of our church leaders have played in history, is not just history. It remains very much today. The difference is that most of us today are aware of what is happening. Therefore, the tug-of-war between those who want to protect this vulnerable, peaceful remnant of a people and those who put their own personal gain in the first place has intensified.Much of the daily conflicts that we are experiencing in the group today can be traced to this tug-of-war. The more people are enlightened, the more difficult it becomes to successfully divide our people into destruction. Here, our media has a vital role to play in the enlightenment and in the service of truth. But the media, who deliberately chooses to represent the interests of the enemy will undermine their own credibility and lose the confidence of their people. Then it will be difficult to build up trust again. People are not as stupid as some of our media seem to believe.Augin Kurt Journalist
Dear AbrahamWe MOSc know how Syrian(antiochean)Patriarchs behaved here in Malankara,as to make a colony for them!They (syrian Patriarch never preached gospel in Malankara!They did not ordain any priests in Malankara prior to A.D.1650!Yakkob burdhana during time of presecution of Church particularly, in Roman Empire such as Alexandrea,Antioch,and Constatinaples etc he ordained bishops and priests everywhere! He himself was ordained at Alexandrea by imprisoned Bishops/patriarchs!However none of these places ecxcept Antioch they were under Syrian Patriarch or Antiochean Heirarchy!How can Syrian or Antioch heirarchy claim any superiority over Malankara!Malankara jacobites or Puthencruz people treat/consider All syrian Patriarchs as sacred/saint people while MOSC bishops/prelates as sinners or unholy!They do not know how Christ's priesthood existing in church!They behave just like Pharisee or Sadduce of Jesus's time and live as those exactly Hypocrites!About Assyrian genocide and the role played by Syrian Patriarch Elias III are known to everybody who comments in this forum from last year middle!Jacobite Heirarchy in their speeches like to praise Antiochen Throne more than Jesus Christ all the times!They consider Throne in Antioch is more than heaven or Almighty God!The disunity or Church feud in Malankara was originated from the Greediness of Syrian /Antioch Patriarchs!Jacobites should learn from Coptic/Ethiopea/Erriteria churches how peace and unity prevailing those 3 places and churches with three different church Heads under one umbrella!
The French intend to use the Assyrians to expanded their borders all the way to Cizre. The Syria-memorandum shows that they want to get hold of this zone as well as Mardin. But thank God Mardin and its surroundings are in our hands today. The religious centers of the Assyrians are located there. Therefore the government must deal with the Assyrians. Or else, the French will use them against us. Currently, all of them living in that area are within our control. As known, the Assyrians are divided into three parts; Orthodox, Catholics and Protestants. The leaders of the Orthodox Assyrians are there (in Mardin, translator’s remark). But the Catholic part is supported by the French. And the Americans are buying the Protestants to their side. If we today by paying money are able to control and keep a small part of them, the Assyrian issue will cease to exist. The land issue will also be resolved and then the matter will soon be forgotten.It therefore appears clearly from the protocol that the intention was to pay off the Patriarch in order to undermine the demographic and national rights of the Assyrians. He was therefore put on the payroll of the state and received 5,000 schillings per month, which was a lot of money back then. This is evidenced by the picture above. In the first few lines, it reads:"Süryani Kadim patriği Ilyas Efendi tarafından Dahiliye bütçesinden mu'ti şehri beş bin ğurus maaşın ...." This document is dated 1920, suggesting that the patriarch probably began receiving his wages from Turkey already at the time of the Peace Conference in Paris in 1919. At this time the chronology is not fully mapped yet, since all documents in the classified files have not been investigated yet.But ten years later, when the regime under Mustafa Kemal no longer needed Patriarch Elias III's services, he was expelled from the country in 1931. Degraded and humiliated, he took refuge in India where he died in February 1932. The year after, also the Syrian Orthodox Patriarchate moved from Mardin in Turkey to the French mandate in Syria.The church's official explanation of the Patriarch’s long journey to India has always been that he wanted to resolve a conflict that existed among the congregation. But this is a pure lie, says Jan Beth-Şawoce. He was expelled and his life was threatened if he ever set foot on Turkish soil again.Also the story of the Syrian Orthodox Christians in Afghanistan is unknown to most of us. In his memoirs, Sultan Abdul Hamid II writes in 1892 that he is proud to announce good news to the Muslim world. Between 250 000 and 300 000 Christians had recently converted to Islam. It was a triumph for the Sultan, whose empire was on about to disslove.
the throne of Antioch is absolutely fabricated, ridiculous and absurd. This is a blasphemy which misguides the faithful away from God and stains Orthodoxy.
There are no Throne Jesus promised his disciples on earth!Jesus promised his disciples throne in Heaven /or in his Kingdom! The Practise or claim by Jacobites are totally anti christian anti biblical!Jesus commanded his disciples to go and preach Kingdom of Heaven!AND NOT THRONE IN ANTIOCH OR ROME!The Jocobites are totally mislead/misguided by their Heirarchy as Jesus told that His Kingdom is not on this world!they (jacobites) just want show some immaterial things!If Jesus is Prince of Peace how can they claim their Spiritual leader Patriarch as "Prince Patriarch"( of which Church/nation?) who does not stand and practice,Peace in Church which is Body of Christ? think twice people using common sense!

Can you tell me Did Jesus appoint any disciples as Patriarch?Who is this Jesus of Nazareth? Do you follow him as he commanded to his disciples?I will answer to your comments when I get your response to my questions!

@ThomasHow did liturgy originate in Church?The Liturgy did not originate in Antioch!You Must learn the Elementry Christianity before making your fabricated statement here? Why did Throne in Antioch move to Damascus in Syria?In Antioch,St.Paul(Saul)and Barnabas preached more than a year and taught them Christ and liturgy! After that, the followers of Christ were known as Christians! read thorughly acts of Apostles! not because of preaching by St.Peter alone!Do not be proud of your Antiochean Liturgy itself!Jesus Christ is for all nations and for everybody!the Liturgy that you follow is not sole property of Antioch!Robes or vestments,why you people dress like eropeans weering! shirt,pants.neck tie and coat/suit!Why do you use english for communication! Paper,and priting technology belong/originate in China!
dear sam so u agree u copied the costumes from antioch, maybe wen anticean fathers visted india, or ur fathers visited antioch. ok. wat abt the prayers, hw did u get the utter same prayers like the antiocean church, above all, nikhya VISWASAPRAMANAM, nd all other koodasa kramams, sushrusha kramams,ditto copy of music. u cant copy all these huge amount of data frm jst a look or a small talk, but only by years of practice.these prayers nd music were not authored nd composed in our nation, it was brought to us by someone.thomasleeha did not teach us all these music, but someone else.
Dear ThomasYou do not actually follow the Church History or tradtions of Malankara Christians/ Nazranis! It is not MoSC who follw your Antioch tradition!You Just believe Christianity in India is brought by Antioch!It is not!Even before antiochean relation came in Malankara,we had liturgy and Nicene Creed in use and Sacrements order books!When antiocheans came here they Changed MOSc liturgy from East syriac to west syriac!MOTV had comments about malankara Orthodox liturgy in 2010! You May go back and read that!Also rememer during the time of portughese(latin) Arch Bishop of Menezis (Goa)reign(A.D.1600-1650) he destroyed all books of Liturgies belonging to MOSC by using his Power and support from Portugal Colony in soth India.As a Malankara christian you don't know what is Coonan cross Oath or How Latin Christianity came in Malankara!Also refer Mavelikkara Padiyola(A.D. 1788 during the time of MathomaVI or Mar Divanasius) in MOSC history about W.syriac(antiochean liturgy and robes/vestments) Therefore you sould not talk about more about liturgy or vestments!

Dear ThomasYou said that Mar Yeldho Baselios came with Kalpana from antioch patriarch,can you give which patriarch details of Kalpana etc?Yeldho Mar Bsaelios used two titles at the same time:Maphrian/Catholicose!Only historians of Jacobite church claims that Yeldho Mar Baselios was representative from Antiochean/syrian Patriach!They were originally from Persia(ninave) refer Kadamattom church documents of 1686 A.D.!It was Mar Ivanios who came with Yeldho Mar Baselios who started the connection of antioch with Malankara!This Mar Ivanios is the one who made malankara Church history into three:- A.D.52 upto A.D.1498(vasco D'Gama) antiochEraWhich totally false/baseless(ii)A.D.1498 to A.D.1650 Portughese /Latin Era (III)A.D.1665 onwards New Era Of Antioch!He used Pakalomattam family bishops to spread his untrue theory or claim in malankara!The Sacrements order in Malankara prior to this 1665 was especially,ThailaKoodasha and Pattam Koda(ordination of Priests) coptic alexandrean/ tradition!The two people who came with Yeldho Mar baselios were from Persia(ninave)refer record of Kadamattom Church!However the travelling expenses of these 3(Yeldho Mar Baselios and other two were born by church in Malankara as they were brought here by Armenian Traders!)Mar Sakralla mafrian came with a team of priests and deacons in 1751A.D. and they were trying to make everything in W.syriac rite in Malankara but only in the region of Kochi(Kochi Pravishya)Until Marthoma V Malankara followed East Syriac rite!During Mathoma VI the agreement of Mavelikara Padiyola came in force!in short Malankara did not borrow/or copy anything from Antioch but Antioch was insisting Malankara to follow Antioch rite in everything/all respect so that malankara became a colony for them like India as British colony!In short Malankara Church did not have any relation or connection with Antioch prior to A.D.1655.
Dear ThomasYou May plese refer Thubden(DIPTYCHS)#5 in our Holy Qurbana! for the departed spirutual fathers ,Doctors(malpan)or Teachers, of the church all who are mentioned there do not belong to Antioch!some belong chuches of to Alexandrea,Rome etc etc! why their names are there?From this it is clear Liturgy did not come from Antioch alone!
All liturgy, costumes, language, sound and equipment every thing came from Antioch. First consignment brought by our Patriachs in 36AD, just after 3 years after Christ went. Latest consignment came during the Manjinikara Perunal this year. I am really fed up with our church people. I have been telling them to Patent all these so that no one else other than our people can use these costumes. Particulary the Metran Kakshi. Reeth is OK because they also give importance to ST.Peter. Once we get the Patent I want to see what you all will be wearing and what you will be using in your church. Only Malayalam No syriac Haha Haha HahahahahahaWhat are we talking about unity. That is the word used in a coward's dictionary. WE are brave. WE hate it. Antiochyaye maranallum, sorry Ammaye Maranallum Antiochyaye MarakoolaLast time unity we lost every thing. This time impossible, we will not allow it. Even if we have to unite with non-cast that is fine but with Metrakakshi IMPOSSIBLE
Few facts about the so called antiochian tradition.Only in the first half of the fifth century the Antiochian church adopted the anophora of Jrusalem known under the name of St.James.In the 4th and 5th centuries the liturgical language of Jrusalem and Antioch was Greek.In the time of the Bizentine Emperor Justin (AD 518-527)he expelled the non-Calcadonians from antioch anf they took refuge in syriac speaking Mesopotomia on the Roman/Persian border(modern East syria,Iraq,and south east turkey).Gradually the antiochian liturgy rites were translated to syriac and new elements such as syriac hyms were intruduced with it.Therefore one should know that the Malankara church was using East syrian liturgy from the 3rd century onwards,whereas at that time the antiochian syriac liturgy was not even taken place.In 1923 Vattaseril Thirumeni went to Turkey for peace talk with Patriarch Elias III. Why he has not bothered to listen to him.Now the Patriarch group says Elias III came to India in 1931 for resolving the conflict that existed among the church. But it is a pure lie.He was expelled and his life was in danger if ever set foot on Turkish soil.So he came to into as a refuge.Now the Jacobites making money in his name as a saint.Let me ask a question, why the syrian Metropolitan came to India and stayed here long years.They don't have any congregation to serve their laymen in their Diocese.If they want to preach of teach it should be for few months.From where they got the name such as Athanasios,Deevannasios,Dioscoros,Dionysius, Etc, These are all Greek names. Do you know the song Paulose Shleeha Dhanyium...was written by Vattaseril Thirumeni.The intension of the fanatic leaders of Jacobite church in kerala is to misguide the poor laymen in the name of Antioch.Even if the Patriarch says,they will not listen for unity.They want position and money from the laymen by hook or crook.God bless Malankara church Abraham Mattackal John

Actually there are many points to be disagreed with Johnachan's writings. I just want to emphasis that for Malankara Patriarch of Antioch is not like the head of commonwealth for Australians or Canadians, but is like a head of the state for Briton. The king England is the real ruler for England, Wales and Northern Ireland the way patriarch of Antioch is the supre, real and actual head of Malanakar Sabha. Onece MOSC undersatnd the meaning of what is a head of the established church like the Malankara sabha, then all the rubbish "unity" discussion will go into oblivion.
Abraham Mattackal John raised an important valid question. Why did the Patriarchs of Antioch who were supposed to govern their own faithful lived here for long? if they had so much affection and concern about Malankara why have they refused anyone from India to become a patriarch. (They have racial bias when they prohibited a part of their own church members to become its head on the basis of RACE.)
I am against people who want to make peace somehow and at any means. This will only make matters even worse later. The Church was united QUICKLY (two times) soon after the earlier court verdicts. So many people were diappointed that this time (1995 Supre Court order) it did not happen, even after 15 years... BUT WHY?A QUICK merger would have again made matters even worse which would only have led to another split and more cases. BUT GOD REIGNS.We'll see the enemies of UNITY OF CHRIST'S body put to shame before the actual unity takes place. Even traces of rebellion will also be eliminated by the power of God. SABHA IS HIS BRIDE, our faith is that the Husband Christ will make HIS Bride PURE & PERFECT.Let us NOT compromise on the principles of Orthodoxy and independence which other Orthodox Churches have. Why should we bring here HH Patriarch from Antioch for acepting HH's terms of surrender? This is again take us a century bac . WE HAVE TO THINK ABOUT FUTURE ORTHODOXY IN INDIA. This is more imprtant than making peace NOW at any cost. If we do that now, we'll only pospone our struggles and leave our generations to fight in the future. The enemies of Peace with Unity are dying and we'll have PEACE with UNITY and DIGNITY for all, irrespective of camps. The so called Samadhanasamithy which is trying to intervene unsuccessfuly has NO role here. They should never be entertained in any forum of the Church.
Dear JoshyHow Come Patriarch of Antioch is more Powerful and supreme in Malankara Church?Has any of Antiochean Patriarch preach Christianity in India?Has they built any church in Malankara?or did they preach here and died for Jesus Christ?Jesus Christ Never appointed any supreme leader among his apostles!Church of Antioch is not mother church or it is not the place Christianity had begun or started!Make sensible comments based on scriptures or tradition!Antiochean had no prior record in Malankara church history before 1653 A.D.Did Antiochean come here to free/liberate us from any foreign churches slavery?
Dear AllAntioch patriarch is not supreme among oriental orthodox churches!As the way some people say something without proper understanding of Early Church,history of early church and traditions in 1st and 2nd centuary!In early Church there were overseer,elders and deacons in spiritual/clergy level!Overseer is currently called episcopa/Bishop and elders were known as prebyters/kassisso(priests)Alexandrean church in early centuaries followed a system of making Episcopa/bishop by 12 priests!It is the Epistles of St.Paul,which give us the church heirarchy system in early church!So There were no high priest like Patriarch or Pope or Catholicose! this came in practise later by 4th or 5th centuary only.Let me put this way the technolgy and road,air,sea transport,posts and telecommunications in India we got from British people!Even the current democratic parliement system is also from Britain!Likewise in Malankara the Heirachy was known as Jathikku Karthavyan or Achidiocean(arkidiakion)and malankara had all sacrements and liturgy or prayers! We were not living without priesthood or sacrements! When Portughese people came in They wanted everything in Latin Rite! We refused and we had to fight against them!If Malankara Was under Roman empire in early centuries we could have followed the system of heirarchy like Antioch,Alexandrea or Constantinaples or Byzantian tradition!However through the Antiochean contact by 18th centuary we followed their system of liturgy! This does not mean that Malankara borrowed everything from Antioch!The europeans brought here all western protastant churches and R/Catholic and L/Catholic ritesof Catholic church in Malankara!British /European came in India initially for trade later become rulers of the country!Like wise Antiochean Bishops came here to help us to fight mainly against the church missionary society/Anglican in malankara! But later own they become rulers or used to behave like Foreign Dictators/ Monarchs who were looking for Power and money from Malankara!Peter III Bava came here A.D.1872 at our own expense,before coming here he went to London at our own expenses for to study the situation in Malankara!after coming here He made or divided the church into 7 diocese and made /appointed bishops for getting "Resheesa" from here to Antioch! Look at St.Paul he preached everywhere gospel at his own sweat or expnses! we did not object any of their demands! During Abdulla Bava's time the problem in Malankara statrted because of his Greediness!actually he came here in Malankara for making money and luxururies like Gold and silver for his own Glory in Mardeen!If You read St.Peter 1epistle 5:2-3,you will understand what St.Peter had written or instructed the early elders of Church!This H.H. Abdulla was acting against the apostolic teachings and traditions!It was during his tenure all issue of Samudaya Case started!Now the problem,during Yakkob III regime,he was trying to make Malankara under his apostolic throne and he wanted MOSC catholicate to stay as a Maphrian under him,and he wanted direct control over all overseas churches of Malankara(the gulf region,America,singapore etc)>when the synod amd Catholicate in Malankara refused to do so he emerged with his infamous bull and subsequent Ex-communication of Malankara catholicate and synod uncanonically!He was acting against the peace accord of 1958!St.Thomas preached gospel in india or Persia not because of St.Peter!St.Peter was an apostle like St.Thomas!All apostles of Jesus Christ had the same authority and rank/position!Jesus did not make St.Peter as head of apostles or head of his earthly church!
Dear All (continuation)Whatever split/disunity to be happened took place in Malankara Church!However as Christians we must look forward for peace and reconciliation!This does not mean that Antioch Patriarch is going to be the supremehead! He is going to be honoured/respected as per MOSC church constituition!It is not MOSC who behaved uncannonically in the past!Whatever mistakes happened in the past it happened like as due to the mistake of carpenter and as well as wood! However since we are in millenium we must be able to forgive each other or to end our centuary long dispute!St.Paul and st.Barnabas in early church they seperated once,but later they were all together in the mission of Church! Likewise MOSC and Jacobites and H.H. Bava of Antioch all together reconcile and peace ,unity should be there in Christ's church!
Yes, even our good Lord is not in a hurry to unify HIS Church. BUT LORD HATES ANYONE WHO CUT OR DIVIDE HIS Church. The Bible says God hates anyone who makes quarrel among brothers...1. NEVER CAUSE DIVISION IN CHURCH2. As Christians we should ONLY aim to unify the Church and work towrds that.3. IT IS THE HOLY SPIRIT who helps in unification. So I belive anyone works against unification, sin agiainst HOLY SPIRIT.4. UHIFICATION PROCES is SLOW, hence it may take a long time. That is why we are aksed to pray for strength to suffer for long.5. NEVER ever devaite from our values and principles. God will make our unification dream fruitful
In 1915 Elias III became the Patriarch. Since 1915 until 1932 he was preying for piece in Malankara. After 11 years since assuming office, there was no sight of initiation of peace in the church from the part of the Patriarch, in 1926 Vattasseril Thirumeni visited Mardin since Thirumeni was persuaded by Chathiyan Panicker to go for a visit and negotiate for peace. During this visit Elias III did use his feet towards piece by kicking Vattasseril Thirumeni a few times. Thirumeni did confess this to none other than Panicker Metran and he felt, there is no point in continuing in this church and went and embraced the Catholic faith. He is today in the process of becoming a Saint.In 1932 when his own people started doubting the credentials of Elias III, for suppressing the genocide incident, he wanted a place for hiding. He cannot go to any other place in the world because any where he goes he will find his own people (Syrian (Arabi) Christians) who were aware of the genocide. But in Malankara he knew it is a different breed who does not know the difference between Mother & faith and he will be in heaven and landed here. He lived in heavenly comfort for 11 months until he received the curse back which he gave to Thengutharayil Geevarghese Corepiscopa and passed away. Today Elias III is a saintly father who came to Malankara to establish peace.As far as I see it, our church had a constitution even before we as a Nation started the Quit India Movement in 1942. That was the vision of our forefathers. Whatever rights we have given to the Patriarch still stands. My father used to say it was only because of the Catholicate and the 1934 constitution we had this entire problem in the church.Unfortunately he was not there to see the emergence of the Puthencruz duplicate Catholicos, their 2002 constitution and the latest Reeth Catholicos, which only reveals all who were against the Catholicate and the 1934 constitution was only due to their vested interest. If you want real peace learn the history of the church and also the faith of the church, the whole problem will be over.
Mr. Vincent,You said "Has any of Antiochean Patriarch preach Christianity in India?Has they built any church in Malankara?or did they preach here and died for Jesus Christ?"Just read the history books of any IOC historians, it wil give names of Bishops who died in Malankara for preserving the true faith. HB Baselious, HB shakralla and numer of bishops.Why does IOC remember Mar Baselious of Kothamangalam in the Dyptch of Holy Qurbana, Is HB not an Antiochian Bishop.When any of your Association meeting or Mooron Koodasha takes place, every time the IOC leadership remember and write article about the visit of HH Patriarch Pathrose IV in 1875 AD.Before criticising the Antioch plz understand the Importance of the throne in Malankara.
Dear JoshyI think you may have to go through the history of Malankara Church from A.d.52 to A.D.1685! You people always talk about immaterial things!Yeldho Mar Baselios died here because of old age and illness!He is not one who fought against Portughese! or Latin catholics!It is Jacobites who says or belive that everything in Malankara came from Antioch from A.D.52!Throne in Malankara belongs to whom?Can you give me any account of Christianity preached here by Antiochean with necessary d evidence or support!Yeldho Bava is not from Antioch!The Thaksa used by Yeldho Bava is clear evidence to that!You must study when Antioch liturgy came in Malankara When and how rather than critisizing MOSC!
Was Peter the head of the apsotles-fact or myth? By Zach Steves.Makes really thoughtful reading. It will help to end all false propaganda that is spread to mislead the people.Open the link below:http://www.scribd.com/doc/49846638/Was-Peter-the-Head-of-the-Apsotles-Fact-or-Myth
Dear Vincent,You said,"Can you give me any account of Christianity preached here by Antiochean with necessary d evidence or support!"But Before you criticise Jacobites ask IOC historians about the evidance and documents that how can they come to the conclusion that during the pre-1653 period Malankara church was under Nestorian influnce. It is the catholic version especially the Jesuits. During the Diyamber Synod Portugeese had burned all the original documents of Malankara Sabha. So no way one can claim about the pre-1653 Church was whether it is Antichian or Assyrian liturgy prevailed in Malankara. But why Jacobites calim it was Antiochin because the immediate leaders of the Church after the Cooonan Cross pledge, who born before 1653 followed the relationship with Antioch which they inherited from their forefathers. That is why Jacobites say Malankra Church had continued its realtionship with Antioch before the IOC said period of 1685. And about the fight against Catholise by Antiochian bishops it would be better for you to read IOC historian M. Kurian Thomas' writings or ask him personally. He will give the naration about the HB Shakralla Vs catholics issue.
Dear JoshyWhat you wrote here is totally misconception!Prior to A.D.1653 there were no Antioch relation or connection in Malankara!Mar Ahatulla was not an antiochean Bishop! The letter he wrote while in custody of Portughese at Mylapore which is now kept in Vatican is an evidence to that!Antioch relation started in Malankara after the arrival of Mar Yeldho Baselios!Mar Ivanios who came with Mar Yeldho Baselios( Ivanios came as a priest and he was consecrated by Yeldho Bava) was the one Who were forcing MAR THOMA METRHANS(PAKALOMATTAM FAMILY)to have connection with antioch and because of that Mar Sakralla Mafrian and team came in Malankara!hilip or some historians made their history during the time of samudaya case and was not relying on actual facts or records of Kerala history !You may also read the liturgy of Malankara by authored byKurien Thomas!
Dear All refering to the peace and unity article by Rev.fr. K.K.John,in principle I agree with him!however I do not agree with his comments especially regarding MULAMTHURITHY ASSOCIATION!How Come patriarch Peter III convene a meeting in Malankara by then?Peter III Bava is the First Antiochean Patriarch who visited Malankara!The first Malankara Suriyani Kristhiani Association was convened at Parumala in 1873(Parumala Association) under Pulikootil Mar Dionyasius ,The Malankara Metropolitan!After Peter III Bava came in malankara,he visited various places then he consecrated 6 bishops without consulting THE MALANKARA Metropolitan!The Partriarch created 7 dioces by making agreement signed with those newly created 6 bishops!This was purely a way getting money from Malankara (by the way of REESHEESA from all dioces)and making Malankara a colony of Antioch!The 6 bishops were not consecrated at the same time or venue as consecration took place in 3 different days or time!This(consecration) was a personal decision by Peter III without convening Malankara Suriyani Kristiani Association!It was Malankara Association in Parumala(1873) made their suggestion to invite Antioch Patriarch to Malankara!Although Peter III Bava consecrated 6 new bishops with an Agreement,he was not able to make all the dioces under his custody through that agreement!Peter III dismissed the Malankara Association by a Bull/Kaplana in 1876.However in1878,again Parumala Malankara Association met they reorganised the dismissal of Malankara suriyani Kristhiani Association!My question is that When Pulokkottil Mar Joseph mar Dianyasius was the Malankara Metropolitan,how come Malankara Suriyani Kristiani Association was convened by Peter III Bava? May Fr.K.K. John really quote the history here regarding the factual errors committed by H.H.Marthoma Paulose II regarding the Association held in 1875?
Dear JoshyPlease read Mavelikkara Padiyola (1788 A.D.)and the Mulamthurithy Associaction Minutes or decisions(1876 A.D) regarding the liturgy and vestments in Malankara!Defnitely,you will get an idea of what was here in Malankara Prior to A.D.1685!Also note that last year (end of 2010) the Jacobite Church celeberated the Centenary of "Pampakuda Mamaskarakram" which also gives a clear indication idea about Antiochean liturgy was not here prior to A.D.1685!
Fr.K.K.John has his own views and ideas with regard to peace. He along with mar Nicolovas came to our church. Today mar nicolovas is the diocese metropolitan. Hope he remembers his famous quotation, "veetill ninnum irangi, tharavattil chenno athumillay". All people have vested interest. Every one fabricates history according to their own convenience as a result even truth cannot be believed. Follow the faith and find the true history. Today St.Yeldho baseilios is an Antiochian father sent by the Syrian Patriarch. Does any body knows what did the Syrian Patriarch HH Peter IV did when he came to Kothamangalum church on seeing the tomb of Yeldho Baselios. In times to come they will even make St.Dionysius of Vattaseril one amongst them showing that they all will die for the Patriarch. The have already made St.Gregorios of Parumala an Antiochian fanatic. What a pity?
The writings of Mr. Vincent, Sam's criticism against Fr. KK John and Valiyaparamban show that IOC is totally a confused Church as there is not clarity about the the hisory of IOC.The reason is that different people interpret chistory of Malankara Sabha differently. Some people say IOC is an independant church, but its 1935 constitution says Patriarch of Antioch is the head of the church. However, IOC Catholiocose says there is no other head above me except the God himself. Few say Prior to the visit of Abdul Jallen Mor Gregorious in 1665 Malankara Church was under the influece of Assyrian (nestorian) Church, but has no fafcual evidance to prove the relationship. Others say IOC is established by Mor Vattasseril in 1912, but continues with the Antiochian liturgy.So my request is that first you people put your house in order then come to criticise Jacobites who has only one history, one throne and one liturgy

@Mr.JoshyYour comments/critisism towards SAM or Vincent is totally unwanted!Sam did not critisize Fr.K.K.John!Vincent gave some real facts about Antiochean liturgy or Antiochean relation in Malankara!You cannot accept the truth as Jacobites always chant and sing "Antioch".Those people who does not know their father always talk like that!Jesus never appointed Simon Peter as head of Apostles or head of his earthly church!That Is The Truth!!!Antioch is not the origin of Christianity!Antioch is not the mother church also!You were not able to give any proper answer to the questions/comments that Vincent raised here!Everything Antioch! "Sarvathum Anthyokiamayam!Ennu padunnallathe thelivu sahitham enthenkilum thaankalku ezhuthuvan kazhinjo"?please refrain from unneceeasry and unwanted comments!Kannaduchu pidichal Irittaakilla!!!
@Mr.Joshy"manjappitham ullavanu ellam manjichirikkum"
Att.Mr.JoshyWhat ever you wrote here about MOSC/IOC are what jacobites,your own people says!not by IOC/MOSC people! we Know who is our father and our mother!You people follow only history written by Kaniamparabil Kurien Chor Episcopa/or E.M. Philip which were written mainly for jacobites by themselves hiding the real facts!You only read Bible translated by Fr. Kurien Chor episcopa! That is not our fault!In Malankara the syrian language/liturgy came not because of Antiocheans! Antiocheans only came after 1685.! Prior to coonan cross oath all(majority) Malankara Nazranis were using Syrian Liturgy but not Assyrian/nesthor Liturgy!You people do not want to know the truth or real facts as you say like in Malayalam" Seetha araanennu chothichal Ravanante Bharya anu"This exactly you people (jacobites)always do/follow!You read the Whole 1934constiuition of MOSC! Then you will understand Who is Patriarch and what his position in MOSC! Supreme court of India upheld our constiuition! you are not more than S/C of India!
Attention Mr.Joshycan you quote from Bible or from any scripture that in Antioch St.Peter established throne?Jesus Christ Commanded and sent his apostles for preaching Kingdom of God! Not for establishing Thrones!All apostles are representatives/ambassadors of Jesus Christ!You read book of revelation thoroughly ,then you will understand what is Throne!You are just like blind Scribes and Pharisee/Sadduces of Jesus' time!Acts of apostle 1-12 chapters describes early mission of St.Peter together with other apostles and no mention of throne or any church!One of your Learned clergy wrote in your PARADOOSHANA MASIKA that The time/moment that Jesus Saw simon Peter he(jesus) called him as Cephas!This is pure lie as those who normally read the bible (refer the four gospels)can understand the context,time or day or the occasion in which Jesus spoke about the word Cephas/rock!after calling simon Peter as rock,Jesus also told Simon Peter as Satan/devil.You are just like that/behave smilarly, as you people only look for worldly things/position and power!Your "one faith" is(self glorification/Greatness) Power,position and glory of this world! Your"one Throne" is also for self Glorification /self existence!Your "one Faith"is on throne of Antioch(imaginary) and not Jesus Christ the savior!
@JoshyOrthodox Church is very clear about its past, present and future too. Let us not discuss the past for sometime since we do not agree on this topic. What about your PRESENT and FUTURE? ARE YOU NOT HEADING FOR A DISASTER AT ANY MOMENT? ARE YOU AWARE OF THE CHARGES & ALLEGATIONS (which the court seriously observed and ordered to be investigated) AGAINST YOUR TOP LEADER? Are you aware that Jacobite Athibhadranam's relationship with Antioch is on the wane?
jacobite leaders play some wild games: They picture themselves as Syrian and Orthodox as Indian Orthdox Church. Whether you agree or not, Syrian is ocmmon to both camps. Syrian signifies the liturgy language, and not the geographical region. Therefore the Orthodox chruh is more Syrian than Jacobites Athibhadrasanam. Syriac, the liturgy language is common to all. Antioch people also learn it like we do it here. (Since their mothertoungue is ARABIC).We are proud to be called INDIANS. Teh equakl term for the jacobite is ARABIAN.
YESJacobites are members of Arabean Orthdox Church.
Dear JoshyJacobites in Malankara are anti-orthodox,the reason you beleive and preach that Priesthood of Jesus Christ in his church is converged through St.Peter or his successors alone!This is unbiblical and not based on scriptures!Therefore you people are totally wrong!Oriental orthodox churches do not follow this antibiblical teaching!We dont need your "one faith" and "onethrone" concept here!
Dear Ravi GeorgeDon't call this Jacobites as Syrians! When they are in Syria, they are mere Indians!In Malankara they call themselves syrians to identify themselves with Syrian Patriarch or former Antiochean Church!They beleive it was St.Peter who sent St.Thomas to Malankara/Kerala and Church in Malankara are given priesthood through Antioch throne Which totally and basically untrue/un real facts!Threy are like Jews who told Jesus that their Father is ABRAHAM!Just like that! for them St.Peter is going to open the Heaven to have free access for jacobites!Their Holy fathers in Antioch never follow what St.Peter instructed them to follow through his epistles!Another thing their holy fathers until A.D.1875 did not use the word/title "AND ALL THE EAST" after Peter III bava visited malankara1nA.D.1875 they(antiochean) changed title as "Partriarch of Antioch all the East" there were no universal orthodox synod met or approved this title!"veenathu Vidhya akkunna koottar or alkar"this Antiochean Bishops and their supporters in Malankara!
Dear AllOne of the Jacobite fellow wrote in this blog that "The source of Pure and holy priesthood is from Antioch"(Kalankamillatha paurohithyantinte uravidam Antokia)Does this guy really understand the Priesthood Of Jesus Christ!If Jesus Christ,The Eternal ,High priest who gave his 12 Disciples this gift as as his ambasadors. This guy who wrote this is totally an ignorant and blind person!All his(Jesus) 12 disciples got priesthood! There is no place in Scriptures mentioning anything about Priesthood in Antioch! Beware of this people in this millenium!
Dear AllThe Article by Babu Paul in Knanaya Deepam regarding vision of H.H.Zaka I,refers:-If H.H.Zaka is truly peace loving person he could not have consecrated H.B.Thomas as Catholicate/Mafriana of India in the firstplace!Secondly hisprecedessorH.H.Yakkoob III divided Malankara Church through his heretic teaching/bull,consecrated and createduncanonically/unconstituitionally a Mafrian Paulose BaseliosII (paulose Mar Philexinos)! MOSC did not show disrepect to any Patriarch!Even before 1995 verdict of S/court of India the Patriarch is honoured by MOSC through its constituition and Liturgy!The Unity or peace in Malankara can be acheived through initiative of Antioch Patriarch which they are always reluctant!Even Babu Paul as a close friend ofH.H. Zaka I,did not make any initiative for peace in Malankara!The Main obstacle in Unity and Peace in Malankara are the creation of Unwanted and neccssary Mafrinate/catholicate created by H.H.Yakkob III andH.H.ZakaI.The U.K.faithful of Jacobite Church requested H.H.Zaka to take action against H.B.Thomas I for mention of his name in the Murder case investigated by C.B.I by CJM court!Why H.H.Zaka remaining silent? Why H.H.Zaka directly want administer/oversee,the overseas dioces of Jacobite Church of India Like U.S.A and Europe?Babu Paul should also come with proper answers to thsese situations/ problems!The Existence of Jacobite Church in India is mainly due the dispute/conflict with MOSC!Also It is not successors of St.Peter are the source of Priest Hood in Christ Church on this earth!

Dear sam as you said, the antiochian church came over to India to enforce their vestments, beliefs and practices. At that time we were very much forward in christian way of life and was practising the east syriac rite. I don't know whether this east syriac rite is native of India formulated by our forefathers?!! It must be, otherwise our church fathers would not have propagated this story. But fortunately it matches(at some points) with the main stream church history believed in Kerala. We can certainly claim that we are called puthenkoottukaar by the syro malabar christians due to this reason. Another doubt arises here, if that is the case then syro malabar church is practicing east syriac tradition. If it is true we should tell them to stop doing it and it belongs to us. If it is not true then we should find out the real east syriac rite and adopt it and teach this antiochians a lesson. but the doubts do not end here so we were only ruled by the arkkadiakon(arch deacon) and was not in connection with any churches of the world. then who ordained arch deacon. Catholicose of the east?? He was not our head then??!!! or he himself proclaimed as priest or high priest. why we did not get a full bishop?? I also doubt since we are for pro Indian and anti foreign rule then how come this east syriac tradition come in line with that. St.Thomas came with east syriac tradition?? why he did not make a tradition in line with the India's culture? we should have protested at that point itself and tell him we will not allow any foreign rule or practice.
Dear Evolutionplease refer to Mavelikkara Padiyola of 1788(A.D.)or article by Malankara Church and liturgy by M.Kurien Thomas you will get full details of the tradition of MOSC liturgy in Malankara!During the Portughese rule Arch Bishop Menezis of Goa destroyed by fire all our liturgy in East syriac as he ordered to seize and destroy everything of Our Liturgy in all churches from north to south in malankara(kerala). Roman (Syro Malabar/Malankara )catholics use East syriac was mainly that they(roman catholic) try to attract our people by following East syriac by then.Even Latin Catholics tried to make their liturgy in East syriac in order to get/attract Malankara Nazranis to their faith!
Dear EvolutionPrior to A.D.52,ancient kerala had trade relations with Presia and alexandrea(eagypt).When St.thomas arrived here there were jews merchants in Malankara who used to speak East syriac of Persia!St.thomas has all the authority like st.peter to ordain or conscrate successors in his church! St.Thomas had his successors in Persian Church Mar Adai and Mar Mari!Malankara Church since A.D.52 usedEast syriac as Liturgy Language until A.D.1788!However during Portughese era of rule the Latin Catholics under Arch Bishop Menezis wanted to convert all nazranis of malankara to latin catholic and they used East syriac as liturgy language for that purpose!After the Portughese Dutch and British rule came in Kerala But the Roman catholics of Europe followed the same pattern of Latin Catholic style i.e. Litugy in East syriac to convert all Malankara Nazranis to their faith!However Malankara Nazaranis of st.Thomas rejected the European faith and they tried to contact church in Alexandrea,Persia and also church in antioch! The antiocheans or Persian Church bishops who were under Church of antioch contacted/responded to us first!Therefore a team of people came under Mafrian mar Sakralla in A.D.1751 in Malankara who brought west syriac here only at Cochin region only(Cochi was a seperate country in Kerala,there were kingdoms of Thiruvithamcore and Kozhikode)During Marthoma VI there were an Agreement signed by Mathoma VI and Mar Sakralla mafrian at Puthiyakavu Mavelikkara in A.D.1788 for making the official liturgy in west syriac for whole malankara church!
