Is the Deje Selam Reporting Good Or Bad?

(From Addisu Tesfaye Mengistu's Facebook Page):- Since time immemorial, there had been a latent and explicit effort to destroy Ethiopian Orthodox church.Unfortunately, the attempt and conspiracy to dismantle the church is more than ever on our times.Infidels and other wolfs have infiltrated in to the church and are trying their level best to paralyze the church. Is investigating and reporting such stories a crime? Of course not!!! Let us examine the points what the author posted on his face book wall .Though the bulleted points are many, but I can categorize all the news in to some four or five points.

The first one is reports about the administrative incapacity ( of the Patriarch, archbishops, .. and others ), inefficiency and the aftermath the church is encountering. I have read tonnes of reports from Deje Selam regarding this issue.

Exposing the ever increasing crime committed upon Orthodox Christians in every corner of the country is the other major (second) News catagory of Deje Selam reports (the case of Illubabor, Jimma, etc).

The third category of news i read from Deje Selam revolves upon the ever deteriorating condition of the so called " preachers" (who are actually wolfs but disguised in sheep skin. ).The last category as per my observation rotates upon the heritage of the church and the problems they are facing.

It is not Deje Selam who fabricated the news. Rather, it is Deje Selam who played an investigative role and exposed the crimes being done in the church and against the followers of the church. The followers  has the right to know about what is going on inside the church .Thanks for the upto date and reliable information majority of EOTC followers  are now able to know who is what.

No wonder if those involved in the conspiracy to down the church are mad of Deje Selam. Because it is the only Media reporting their evil deeds.For such guys Deje Selam is Deje Betibit but for the followers of the religion Deje selam is indeed deje selam: trusted and respected media !!!

Thumbs up for the reporters, producers and editors of Deje Selam.  Your effort does have a big chapter in the modern history of the church and u should be proud of what u are doing.

I also support the idea written by the blogger.
A problem known is half solved. To solve a problem , knowing about the problem is of paramount importance. That is what Deje selam is doing.You know you are fighting for truth and truth.

Deje selams, please be aware that the whole follower of the church is at the back of you.
Keep on doing what you are doing

Dear brothers ,in the time of transparency and acountability has become an issue in the government sector ,and such widespread corruption in the church ,how can one keep silent ?!!! While churches in the remote are being closed ,how one, the true child of the church keep silent ?!!!Impossible!! I wrote this with tears !!! How can keep silent while heretics ,not the children of the church ,holding sway to "throw away" Her?!!
Dear dejeselamawuyan ,"wagachihu besemay newna sile kidist betekirstian tebeka mekomach'hun katilubet".
I think there remains much much to inform at least the majority of the church followers :b/c
1.how much available is internet access in Ethiopia ?
2. How many of those who have availability of internet access know 'Dejeselam"?
"Bichal Bichal Radio enquan aybekam".

Because if all the children of the church have information ,it will be easy to go to solution.

So may God help you,dejeselamawuyan.

Dear Deje Selam!
We like you and your work.I think, you are called by the almighty God,to protact our churcu from corrupted administration and from those who dislike her existance. Now adays the church has many enemies who planned to take her faithful and then to lead them to the wrong direction.

Please, keep it up in doing the great jobs that you are currently doing. Expose those people who are selfish, responsible and crazy. What is happening in our church is unthinkable, therefore, as a meémen we need to contribute our input to the solution. These days we need to be a true son of our church.

i would agree that deje selam is my favourite web to read about my church and what's going on, but lately some times i doubt the report for its realiability.in some how some times they do it personal.when they report negative issues always it has negative out come too, so revise your reports before posted.

I disagree with the claim which says Deje Selam's reports are reaching the MAJORITY of the believers of EOTC. We, who have access to this information are pretty a few. A lot of work is left to be done to reach the MAJORITY. We should try our best to create a dialogue about our church in our society. The believers of our church are some 40 millions, never forget that. There is a lot to do.
