Hypocrisy and Shamelessness - Synonyms of "Methran Kakshis"

Read

..The latest trick of Metran Kakshis..

We think that the Metran Kakshis are short of ideas and their level of desperation has reached new heights.

One of the allegations they raised against our building a Church in Parumala was that we have made a website in the name of Parumala Pally, which is their 'trademark'. When people think only about money, everything will seem as money making efforts to them.

The latest is that the Metran Kakshis, who accuse us of having registered a website in the name of Parumala church have registered a website in the name of our Manarcad Church. The web link of the same is http://manarcadpalli.org/

But on clicking the above link, you are in for a surprise.. The website that opens is that of Metran kakshi Parumala church.

Their level of desperation is shown on their online blogs. On these blogs, they are creating fake identities in the names of Jacobites - especially Jacobites who write regularly in SOCM - Forum and using these fake identities to badmouth Jacobite Church and the Jacobite media. We understand that this is a cheap gimmick since they cannot face us with truth. Such desperation on their part is another sign that they are built on a lie and the process of justifying this lie is still not over.

Nobody can match the Metran Kakshi crookedness

"It is particularly reassuring to listen to the voices for justice and reconciliation" - HG Dr. Mor Coorilos Geevarghese

CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA: The Third Congress of the Lausanne Movement has been meeting in Cape Town, South Africa since the beginning of this week. Delegates from 200 countries have been discussing evangelism in diverse contexts, styles and cultures. The theme of the event is “God in Christ reconciling the world to himself” (2 Corinthians 5:19). The Lausanne Movement seeks to be a global network of "reflective practitioners" who share one vision for the work of world evangelization. The movement began in 1974. Mor Coorilos Geevarghese, Moderator, Commission of World Mission & Evangelism (CWME) is a memer of the delegation representing the World Council of Churches (WCC), led by WCC general secretary Rev. Dr Olav Fykse Tveit has been present at the third congress, in Cape Town, an event the Lausanne movement leadership refers to as its "most diverse gathering ever".

In an interview, the moderator of the WCC Commission of World Mission and Evangelism, Metropolitan Dr. Coorilos, said that in a historical context that requires greater unity among Christians, the participation of the WCC in this congress of the Lausanne movement would go a long way toward bridging the gap between evangelicals and the ecumenical movement, "a distinction that we need to overcome".
"It is particularly reassuring to listen to the voices for justice and reconciliation," Mor Coorilos said. He added that he prays that the spirit of unity in the congress, which was also demonstrated by a broad constituency and in a tangible manner at the centennial celebrations of the 1910 World Mission Conference earlier this year in Edinburgh, could be sustained for a long time.

The controversy created in the name of Parumala Church unfortunate - HG Mor Gregorios Joseph        Mangalam

..Liars are always liars..

Read "MOTV Report"

Yesterday onwards one of the internet media of "Methran Kakshi" started propagating the lie that, their so called bishops(?) & priests(?) entered St. Mary's JSOC Mullaringad and conducted the funeral service of a faithful with a favourable High Court order. But truth is that, the so called "Methran Kakshi" Bishops & priests were not able to come near the above mentioned Jacobite Syrian Orthodox Church. Also High Court didn't permit any one from "Methran Kakshi" to enter the church. The so called bishops & Priests conducted the service at the home of departed and enjoyed the happiness of doing it inside the church in their dreams.


See the crookedness of "Methran Kakshi" leadership..


The relatives of the departed was ready to conduct the funeral service with the leadership of Jacobite Priest and was not ready to create any problem out there. Seeing this situation the crookedness of "Metran Kakshi" leadership came out and filed a case to permit them to conduct funeral service in a church which is fully Under the control of Jacobite Syrian Orthodox Church. The interesting fact is that even though the family of departed faithful was not willing to file the case, the metran kakshi leadership with the help of some dissidents managed to file the case and ended up with no result.

MAY GOD SAVE THESE CROOKED LIARS..

Gospel Convention at Oliyappuram Kurishupally under the St. John's JSO Church, Vadakara Read

..:: മെത്രാന്‍ കക്ഷികളുടെ ഉണ്ടയില്ലാ വെടി ::..

        False propaganda is something which the Methran Kakshis have used with effect right from 1909 upto this day. So it does not come as a surprise when we see new Goebbels' coming with their conspiracy theories against the Holy Church. The latest in the series is a new gossip doing rounds in the Methran Kakshi media.

       After reading their latest gimmick, we wondered, what makes people to gossip? Is it a psychological disorder? Does it come out of a feeling of insecurity? Is it because of some sort of Inferiority complex? Is it to divert people's attention from one's own stinking internal problem?

This is our effort to expose the greed and shamelessness of Metran Kakshis in clinging onto our property and institutions and at the same time persecuting the Jacobite Church sitting in those very Institutions.

The path to unity between Catholics and Orthodox lies in “separating communion from authority” - Archbishop Mor Gregorios Youhanna Ibrahim

VATICAN CITY: The Syrian Orthodox Metropolitan of Aleppo in Syria, Mor Gregorios Youhanna Ibrahim, argued that the path to unity between Catholics and Orthodox lies in “separating communion from authority” – a common Orthodox talking point in dialogue with Catholicism. In effect, it means unity in faith but not submission to the jurisdiction of the pope. Mor Gregorios also floated a practical ideal that’s an especially ardent ecumenical dream in the Middle East: a common date for Easter. “Christians are waiting impatiently to see their unity represented by this symbol,” he said. Mor Gregorios was speaking in a session at the Synod going on at Vatican.

Catholicism and the other churches of the West following the Gregorian calendar in fixing the date for Easter and other liturgical feasts, while Orthodox churches observe the older Julian calendar. (In 2011, the two happen to coincide on April 24.) Archbishop also proposed a single feast day for all Christian churches to celebrate the martyrs of the 19th and 20th centuries.
