Archbishop of Punjab, Pakistan agrees with Archbishop of Canterbury

“The Syrian Church represents a very ancient and a very rich strand in the great tapestry of Christian witness,” said the Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams.

________________________________________________________________

His Excellency continues, “And perhaps most importantly to most people in maintaining the language that is closest to the language spoken by Our Lord himself across these centuries.

“I can still remember the experience of first hearing the psalms sung in Syriac and realizing that was probably the same kind of sound heard by Our Lord as the psalms were sung in Aramaic in his day.” (Look at the date of this article. It appears on the surface to be almost a prophecy of what the Syrians are experiencing now. Various human societies obviously are not as interested in preserving the Original Christian History as they pretend.)

Photojournalist Giulio Paletta, who specialises in small Christian groups, has been to Tur Abdin in south-east Turkey to record the life of the Syrian Christians.

The little ancient Christian community in the mountains has been immune from Roman influence but suffered in recent upheavals which saw death or exile from beginning of the 19th century to the 1990s. The Syrian Orthodox minority now finds itself struggling with little support from the Turkish authorities.

“The Syrian Church represents a very ancient and a very rich strand in the great tapestry of Christian witness,” said the Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams.

“And perhaps most importantly to most people in maintaining the language that is closest to the language spoken by Our Lord himself across these centuries.

“I can still remember the experience of first hearing the psalms sung in Syriac and realising that was probably the same kind of sound heard by Our Lord as the psalms were sung in Aramaic in his day.”

Speaking of the community’s present struggle with poverty and harassment, Dr Williams said that he wanted to express solidarity with them and pray for them.

“Turkey has an honourable tradition of tolerating and protecting religious minorities and it would be a tragedy if the next generation were to see that tradition becoming any weaker.”

The Bishop of Woolwich read out a message from the Bishop of Tur Abdin who said that it was a great comfort to have support from the British ecumenical Tur Abdin Focus Group which is staging the exhibition.

A second message was received from the Patriarch of Antioch who visited Lambeth Palace last year. The Patriarch’s representative Bishop Polycarpos also spoke.

Canon Bruce Saunders, welcoming the Archbishop, said: “Southwark Cathedral is a parish church rooted in this local community, we are the mother church of the diocese but from time to time we also behave like an English cathedral should with a national profile doing something which takes our interest beyond our own boundaries.”

Among guests at the opening were the Syrian Ambassador, diplomatic representatives from the Netherlands and Turkey, Metropolitan Seraphim of Glastonbury, the Bishop of Gibraltar in Europe, Fr Stephen Griffith who is both Anglican Chaplain in Syria and the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Apocrisiarius to the Syriac Orthodox Patriarch and the Archdeacon of Southwark.

For the Archbishop it was his second visit to Southwark in 6 days; last week he opened a new nurture room at Cathedral School in Redcross Way.

The Tur Abdin exhibition is at Southwark Cathedral until Monday 18 October.

One of them was Syriac, the other was Chaldean. The Syriac speaks Arabic but understood my conversation with his comrade in English. The Chaldean is a member of the Kurdistan parliament who speaks in perfect, fluent English. Among the three denominations that constitute one of the oldest Christian communities in Mesopotamia, only a representative of the Assyrian community was not present.Syriacs, Assyrians and Chaldeans are ethnically and linguistically the same people. They take pride in speaking Aramaic, the language Jesus Christ spoke. Generally, they do not like to be asked whether they are Syriac, Assyrian or Chaldean. They insist that they are all the same and that such a question is of a divisive nature.

Nevertheless, I asked and found that one of them is Syriac, belonging to the Orthodox church, and the other one Chaldean, connected to the Vatican.

Nature vs Nurture

The nature vs. nurture dialogue is a cultural and logical journey made possible with the help of scientific  and spiritual study about whether tribal culture, behavior, social communication is primarily the cause of nature or nurture. Nature, by both sides give definition by journeying into genetics and hormonal influences. Nurture, by both sides give definition by journeying into environment and experience. Wholeness in the dialogue manifest evidence as we move through time, and not taking snapshots of intermediate slices of time and space.

What man seeks is utter freedom, endless happiness and zero pain. In other words, everything.

Eashoa knew. He fulfilled the Scriptures and sent out his disciples into the world to preach about a spiritual kingdom — life everlasting, outside the realm of the visible world; to teach about the Scriptures and how they were fulfilled through his life and mission; and ultimately to give us peace in understanding how the universe works, how to live and never lose heart.

Eashoa knew that his teachings would be misinterpreted by many, but that they would be accessible to those who didn’t use them for self-aggrandizement and personal profit. All I can do is to translate the Scriptures as I find them. I can’t reconcile all the doubters to one set of beliefs. I can only do my best as a translator. I’m satisfied with that.

Eashoa knew everything. His birth, teachings, death and resurrection were the only proof humanity needed to find meaning in life. He picked a narrow sliver in the timeline of the universe to place the historical mission that would make sense of all the history and philosophy of the world. He knew that there were great kings and empires such as those of the Pharaohs, the Babylonians, the Ashurai, the Greeks and the Romans. He knew many others would come and go. He knew of the great philosophers and scientists of all the ages before and the ages that would come. You may not believe it, because you might be thinking how could Eashoa have known everything?

Eashoa knew everything because the best of the scientists have to offer is, “We don’t know.” Man does not understand what gave him birth, what happiness is, why there is pain, and why he must die. (I refer to man not as a Chauvinist, because women know more — they know about birth anyway, and a few other things I don’t wish to go into now.) Eashoa is the only one who has explained this aspect of human consciousness: a seed is nothing more than the genetic basis of what the plant needs to grow out of. So is the human being nothing more than the forty-six chromosomes that make up his or her genesis. The seed and the fetus are the basis of life as we know it. Where did this knowledge come from?

The universe is made up of dark and light elements, negative and positive forces, and the observable world for us is an endless mystery that most of us don’t even care to grapple with; we are so concerned with our own little world, and Eashoa knew that. Ultimately the human being isn’t interested in a scientific explanation, but an opportunity to seek some measure of happiness within the confines of the human culture where he or she lives.

Eashoa knew that. He came to the world two thousand years ago and answered all the questions humanity would ever ask. The questions and the answers are here in the Ancient Aramaic Scriptures. I want you to learn to say “Eashoa”. You say, “Jesus.” It’s Eashoa — not Ye-shoo-wa — Ee-sho. I transliterates it Eashoa. It’s not asking too much, and maybe it’s not all that important, since we all know who we’re talking about. Do we not?  Read more…

“What CFC plans to do is sell market access to French speaking Africa and giving fiscal and financial incentives to financial institutions, professional services firms such as legal and consulting companies as well as large multinational firms with regional headquarters,” Abdelmalek Alaoui, Managing Partner of Global Intelligence Partners, an adviser on the project said in an email statement.

While early Pentecostals in America were often marginalized within the larger Christian community, Pentecostal beliefs began penetrating the mainline Protestant denominations from 1960 onward and the Catholic Church from 1967.[7] This adoption of Pentecostal beliefs by those in the historic churches became known as the charismatic movement. Charismatics are defined as Christians who share with Pentecostals an emphasis on the gifts of the Spirit but who remain a part of a mainline church. Also, charismatics are more likely than Pentecostals to believe that glossolalia is not a necessary evidence of Spirit baptism.[6] The movement led to the creation of independent evangelical charismatic churches more in tune with this revival of the Holy Spirit. Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa, California is one of the first evangelical charismatic church in 1965.[8] In United Kingdom, Jesus Army, founded in 1969, is an example of the impact outside USA.[9] Many other congregations were established in the rest of the world.[10]

Missionaries have the authority to preach the Christian faith (and sometimes to administer sacraments), and provide humanitarian work to improve economic development, literacy, education, health care, and orphanages. Christian doctrines (such as the “Doctrine of Love” professed by many missions) permit the provision of aid without requiring religious conversion.

The earliest examples of Christian missionary activity are those recorded in writings that would eventually come to form the New Testament. Early writings include the letters of Apostle Paul, written in the course of his missionary activity in Asia Minor and Greece. His activities were preceded by an expansion of Christianity from the first followers of Jesus in Jerusalem throughout Syro-Palestine. This is also described in the Acts of the Apostles.

The earliest Christian mission, then, the Great Commission and Dispersion of the Apostles, was active within Second Temple Judaism, as Christianity had not yet split from Judaism. Whether a Jewish proselytism existed or not that would have served as a model for the early Christians is unclear, see Circumcision controversy in early Christianity#Jewish background for details. Soon, the expansion of the Christian mission beyond Judaism to those who were not Jewish became a contested issue, notably at the Council of Jerusalem. The Apostle Paul was an early proponent of this expansion, and contextualized the Christian message for the Greek and Roman cultures, permitting it to reach beyond its Hebrew and Jewish roots.

From Late Antiquity onward, much missionary activity was carried out by members of religious orders. Monasteries followed disciplines and supported missions, libraries, and practical research, all of which were perceived as works to reduce human misery and suffering and glorify the Christian God. For example, Nestorian communities evangelized parts of Central Asia. Cistercians evangelized much of Northern Europe, as well as developing most of European agriculture’s classic techniques. St Patrick evangelized many in Ireland. St David was active in Wales.

During the Middle Ages, Ramon Llull (c. 1232 – c. 1315) advanced the concept of preaching to Muslims and converting them to Christianity by means of non-violent argument.[2] A vision for large-scale mission to Muslims would die with him, not to be revived until the 19th Century.

Additional events can be found at the timeline of Christian missions.

Morocco was the first nation to recognize the fledgling United States as an independent nation in 1777.[27][28][29] In the beginning of the American Revolution, American merchant ships in the Atlantic Ocean were subject to attack by the Barbary pirates. On 20 December 1777, Morocco’s Sultan Mohammed III declared that American merchant ships would be under the protection of the sultanate and could thus enjoy safe passage. The Moroccan–American Treaty of Friendship, signed in 1786, stands as the U.S.’s oldest non-broken friendship treaty.[30][31]

Mar Paulus VII
Mar Paulus VII Have you ever read what being Zionist means?
The common denominator among all Zionists is the claim to Eretz Israel as the national homeland of the Jews and as the legitimate focus for Jewish national self-determination. It is based on historical ties and religious traditions linking the Jewish people to the Land of Israel.
Can you see anything wrong with this concept? I mean, really, Archeology knows, Religions knows, Historians know, Medical Science can prove through DNA that descendants of the Tribe of Judah (Yehuda), actually we all know it.

So, all they are asking for is a very small piece of Dirt… Give it to them and shut up the nonsense. Have we gone Mad? Look how quick forever peace would generate. Think about it. Who will they hurt? Are we so afraid of the blessing that is on them from the God?
