Quite Believable

A news report about Believers Church, a protestant Church headed by bishop K. P. Yohannan (Thiruvalla), planning to merge with Syrian Orthodox Church was aired by Reporter Chanel on Jan. 4th 2013. The last sentence in the report is noteworthy. It says, "a major part of the property of the Believers Church will go to the Jacobite Syrian Association Church in India". If there is enough money involved who cares for faith questions!

Watch the video of the report

Metropolitan of Kochi diocese sent a complaint to the Patriarch by phone and then by fax. The patriarch in turn sent a Kalpana on the same letter the metropolitan sent asking the maprian Thomas I to stop all moves in that direction. It is reported that Metropolitans Kuriakose Mar Theophilus, Geevarghese Mar Coorilos, Coreposcopo Adai Jacob (Seminary Principal) and Mr. Thampu Thukalan are those behind the move.

കര്ത്താവെ അവര് ചെയുന്നത് എന്തെന്ന് അവര് അറിയുനില്ല(ചിലര്ക്ക് ശെരിക്കും അറിയാം), അവരോടു ഷെമിക്കനമെ! ( അറിയുന്നവരോട് നിന്റെ ഇഷ്ടം നിറവേറട്ടെ) ലയനം കഴിഞ്ഞു കാതോലിക്കയിക്കും, മേത്രച്ചന് മാര്ക്കും ഇനി വിവാഹം കഴിക്കാം എന്ന് പറയുമോ ആവോ? കലിയുഗ വയിഭവം, അല്ലാതെ എന്ത് പറയാന്

Dear Thirumeni,
I too watched that news with wonder since the faiths of both churches are poles apart. How one can dissolve oil in water or in reverse? We can find only one similarity in the formation of these churches. i.e. both the churches are established on the rock of personal interests especially power and money. Poor Jacobite brothers. May God save them and their church.
