Church to withdraw from official dialogue with RC
« on: July 11, 2005, 06:22:19 PM »
The Indian Orthodox metropolitan in charge of ecumneical relations wrote to Cardinal Walter Casper  of RC about the withdrawal of Indian Orthodox Church from official ecumenical dialogue.  This is due to Malankara RC Major Archbishop using the title 'Catholicos', a title which Pope of Rome did not assign to the Major Archbishop.  Malankara RC is using the confusing situation in Indian Church to convert Orthodox/Jacobite people and  clergy to RC.

I've always wondered what's the point in ecumenical discussions and as a result "forbid proselytism."  I personally see why some EO ecumenists are so angered at the ecumenical talks.

We should continue to convert RCC if we believe they are under error.

God bless.
Vain existence can never exist, for "unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain." (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.

I think the major issue is our own fault we fight each other and  giving them chance to convert  more innocent members of church,but its unlikely we will ever understand it.
