Anthappan2014-09-04 13:38:56 NewsSame is true with you also Mr. Matthulla. It could be the pride that stemming out of ignorance make you think that way. Seek the truth which sets you free.
Ninan Mathullah2014-09-04 12:25:27 NewsAnthappan is making highly subjective statements, and present it as universal truth. Is it pride that let a person argue that whatever he/she knows is all the truth, and what others believe is from ignorance? How dare a peson say that what I know as the truth is from my ignorance. If it is not pride what you call it?
Ninan Mathullah2014-09-04 12:18:12 NewsHypocrisy is clearly evident in the alcohol policy some advocate. It is like taking the speck from the eye of another person while the log is in own eye. People generally think of themselves as better than others. Mind will always look for reasons to feel good. Criticizing others too much is from this psychology. Some people do not have a taste for alcohol. They highlight this as a sign of spirituality. For some circumstances do not allow them to use it. They also consider themselves spiritual because of it. Those advocating against its use, it is possible that they have their own personal interest or gains from others not using it.
Alcoholic drinks are part of social life from time immemorial. Anything God created is not bad in itself. It is the way people misuse it. It is mentioned for the first time with Noah in Bible. Noah is not blamed for drinking. On the other hand, his children are blamed for laughing at him for the drunken condition. Many in the spiritual sphere close their eyes and make it dark. It is a type of hypocrisy. Jesus made strong wine to safeguard the prestige of his host. Jesus didn’t say anything against its use. New Testament calls those who drink habitually, and forget their responsibilities as drunkards. Apostle Paul let Timothy take alcohol for his indigestion. Old Testament presents wine as something pleasant to use. Solomon says it is better to be as far away from wine as possible if you have no self-control as it can destroy you. Solomon again advises us to buy alcohol and give it to the person who is on the verge of ruin (Proverbs 31: 6-7). God doesn’t want a person to feel miserable. Even if he is on the verge of ruin let him drink and forget his miseries for some time and enjoy his life. Is not it cruel not to let him do that? Now we are tempting these people to make large quantities at home illegally and drink continuous. Equipment is available now at reasonable cost to make it at home.
I think there is more politics involved here than the wellbeing of others. Government needs money in treasury to do any project. If government does good projects, there is chance for it to come to power again. If there is no money in the treasury government can’t embark on new projects. People continue to drink, and government gets no income for public projects. Those people who are harmed by this order can turn against government, and can vote against it. May be these are the motives of some in Kerala advocating against the use of alcohol.

John Varghese2014-09-04 12:10:19 NewsIs there a holy war taking place between Anthappan and Ninan Matthulla?
Anthappan2014-09-04 12:00:48 NewsAnalyzing, interpreting, questioning, raising doubts are all essential tools needed for the advancement humanity. People with normal sense know that the Bible and any other religious books are written by ordinary people with larger than life’s experience and figments of their imaginations. The radicals who believe that these books are written by angels of God are the real trouble makers. The brutality perpetuated in different parts of the world by the so called zealots of God tells us clearly that how they misinterpret data and misguide people. I would ask Mr. Matthulla to go back and read John 5-39 and see how Jesus interpreted things when he was talking to the Pharisees when they evoked the teaching of God from Torah, “You study[c] the Scriptures diligently because you think that in them you have eternal life. These are the very Scriptures that testify about me, 40 yet you refuse to come to me to have life.” John 5, 39-40. I know Mr. Matthulla wants to win over his argument on by contradicting the teaching of His Guru. Jesus. As we discussed a while back ago; most of the Christians are less intelligent and follow their crooked leaders and unfortunately majority are on their side. It is with baffle one can see how the Christians who crucified Christ once turned him into Son of God and capitalizing and leading a comfortable life. (I know that Mathulla is going tell next that I am like Devil who quoted Bible when he was testing Jesus in the desert)
Ninan Mathulla2014-09-04 10:14:10 NewsIn the article I clearly stated that Gays and Lesbians are not my enemies. I know people at work that are Gays but I deal with them everyday. I do not consider them as enemies. They have all the rights as Law abiding citizens. Anthappan is misleading people when he quote me wrong.
Annamma2014-09-04 09:53:21 NewsOh Mr.Britas,it is so touching to read your experience.thanks .God bless you.annamma from Chicago.
Ninan Mathulla2014-09-04 09:52:50 NewsPlease read Book of Romans 1:26 for those who take a verse from Bible and interpret it to mislead people.
For this reason God gave them up to degrading passions. Their women exchanged natural intercourse for unnatural, and in the same way also the men, giving up natural intercourse with women, were consumed with passion for one another. Men committed shameless acts with men and received in their own persons the due penality for their error.
Anthappan2014-09-04 09:45:07 NewsNinan Matthulla is adding fuel to the fire by saying that the humanity is walking fast to their grave. The only people digging their grave are the people those who are involved in the perverted sexual orgy. If you are truly a follower of Jesus then you should change your statement and say, love your enemy and pray for them. Here, it seems like, Matthulla’s enemy is Gays and Lesbians and he is afraid that they are going to take over the world. Following are the diseases which send the homosexuals to their grave. AIDS, Homosexuality and promiscuity, MRSA, obesity, Syphilis, Gonorrhea, Lymph granuloma Venereal, Parasites, Procrit’s, Hepatitis, Shigellosis, Anal Cancer and other problems like Illegal Drug Use and Mental Health.
Anthappan2014-09-04 08:04:13 NewsFrom the beginning of humanity homosexuality was there. The word Sodomy is derived from the Name Sodom and associated with the perverted sexual practice in that city. The following excerpt from Wikipedia explains it better.
“The story of the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah in Genesis does not explicitly identify homosexuality as the sin for which they were destroyed. Most interpreters find the story of Sodom and a similar one in Judges 19 to condemn the violent rape of guests, rather than homosexuality, but the passage has historically been interpreted within Judaism and Christianity as a punishment for homosexuality due to the interpretation that the men of Sodom wished to rape the angels who retrieved Lot.
While the Jewish prophets spoke only of lack of charity as the sin of Sodom, the exclusively sexual interpretation became so prevalent that the name "Sodom" became the basis of the word sodomy, still a legal synonym for homosexual and non-procreative sexual acts, particularly anal or oral sex.
While the Jewish prophets Isaiah, Jeremiah, Amos and Zephaniah refer vaguely to the sin of Sodom,  Ezekiel specifies that the city was destroyed because of its commission of social injustice
Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fullness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me: therefore I took them away as I saw well”
As Jesus said, “Those who draw the sword will be killed by the sword” is true in any case. When people deviated from a natural course and seek back door for gratification; it has repercussions too. But, Gays and Lesbians are good people than the so called Christians crying out for the elimination of them from the society. The politicians those who are looking for vote and the Christians those who are the guardians of Jesus’s kingdom are the two worst people make the issue worst. Many fanatic Christians disregards the teaching of Christ and go after their enemies with their sword of judgment.
