What is wrong in marrying a non-Christian?

We live at a time when the Governments are encouraging mixed marriages as a means of national integration. Rationalists say that Christians are not having a universal and cosmic outlook when they forbid inter-religious marriages. Are the Christians communalistic and narrow-minded when they say with St. Paul “be not unevenly yoked” (II Cor. 6: 14)? There are many reasons for the […]

Jesus made strong wine. Can’t I drink it?

Drunkards who want a basis for their drinking in the Bible always quote, (Jn. 2: 1-11) forgetting all the other anti-drink passages in the Bible (Is. 28: 1, 3; Prov. 23: 21; 26; 9; Rev. 17: 1-2; Gal. 5: 21, Rom. 13: 13; Lk. 21: 34 etc.) The miracles of the fourth Gospel are called signs.

Does evil spirit have power over us ?

The Christian’s not afraid of any evil spirit or stars, or angels or principalities as Christ has disarmed all of them by His death and resurrection.

Should the Holy Bible be the only basis for the Faith of the Church?

The Bible is only a part of the Holy Tradition of the Church. Hence the commandment of St. Paul to “stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us either by word of mouth or by letter” (2 Thes. 2:15). The Christian Church came into existence at least thirty years before […]

Is the individualistic and sectarian interpretation of the Scripture as valid as that of the historical churches with apostolic tradition behind them?

‘The Bible to teach, the Church to interpret’ is a good dictum. St. Peter has clearly pointed out how ignorant men twist the scripture to their own destruction (Read II Pet. 3: 15-17). In the same passage St. Peter adds, ‘You therefore, beloved, knowing this before hand, beware lest you be carried away with the […]

Are there only 66 books in the Holy Bible?

What the Protestants call the Apocrypha is Canonical books for the Orthodox churches and so we have more than 66 books in the Bible. Even the 0. T. Canon was closed only in 100 A. D. in the Council of Jamnia, 13 miles south of Jaffa. The Jews of the Dispersion regarded the Apocryphal books […]

Should I confess before a Priest ?

Private or auricular confession before a priest a sacrament of great benefit if rightly conducted. Christ has given the authority of remitting or forgiving the sins to the apostles (Mt.18: 18, Jn. 20: 22; James 5: 16). Aachan had to confess before Joshua as confession before God (Josh. 7:19) though it was not sufficient to […]

Should we pray, ‘Hail Mary, full of grace……’

The right type of Mariology is to give her the due place of the God-bearer (Theotokos) and to exalt her as the early church and the Scriptures have exalted her. The Roman Catholic practice of praying ten ‘Hail Mary… ‘ for each Lord’s prayer seems to be too much and the Protestant refusal to pray […]

Is there a life after death ?

All speculations and laboratory tests for proving God, soul, and immortality objectively are futile as God and soul are not objects to be tested by objective tests.
