Christian Greed

Jesus Christ is known as the apostle of peace and at one instance he transgressed himself to demolish the greedy. Little he would have thought that his followers in a tiny strip of land called Kerala is destroying peace and embracing violence for safe guarding their greed for money. The CSI church, the other day, displayed its intolerance and thrashed up journalists in Thiruvananthapuram, who had exhumed the shoddy activities (of selling the Medical merit seats for exorbitant rates) of the CSI church and made available it in the public domain. While I write this, I’m also not certain that even I would be spared by these CSI hooligans. Such is their money and muscle power.

We have been watching the inter Church Council fighting tooth and nail with the Governments to protect their greed. Christianity in Kerala has become synonym for money and conversions using cajolement. We saw the two sections of Orthodox Church waging war at each other a couple of years ago and the end result of which claimed a person’s life. The kind of words the rival Bishops were using to attack each other would even put the criminals to shame. Ultimately everyone wants to have a big share of the pie.  

PSALM 58:2
Yea.  in heart ye work wickedness; ye weigh the violence of your hands in the earth.

Lord Jesus! Don’t forgive them!

Happiness comes from spiritual wealth, not material wealth,Happiness comes from giving, not getting. If we try hard to bring happiness to others, we cannot stop it from coming to us also. To get joy, we must give it, and to keep joy, we must scatter it...
