ከፍተኛ የመንፈሳዊ ትምህርት ተቋማቱ ትኩረትና ድጋፍ ይሻሉ


(ለደጀ ሰላም፤ ከቅ/ሥላሴ መንፈሳዊ ኮሌጅ ደቀ መዛሙርት አንዱ)፦ ፕሮቴስታንቲዝም የኢትዮጵያ ኦርቶዶክስ ተዋሕዶ ቤተክርስቲያንን አጥፍቶ ሀገሪቱን ለመረከብ ከአንድ ምዕት ዓመት በላይ የዘለቀ ጥረት አድርጓል፡፡ በዚህ ጥረቱ ከተከተላቸው እና እየተከተላቸው ካሉ ስልቶች አንዱ የቤተክርስቲያንን የክህነትና የስብከተ ወንጌል አገልገሎት እንዲሁም አስተደደር ለመቆጣጠር መሞከር ነው፡፡ በዚህ ስልት መሠረት የአብነት ትምህርት ቤቶቻችንን እና መንፈሳዊ ኮሌጆቻችንን ለመቆጣጠር በርካታ ጥረቶች ሲደረጉ ቆይተዋል፡፡ ለዚህ ማሳያ የሚሆኑ ባለፉት ወራት በቅድስት ሥላሴ መንፈሳዊ ኮሌጅ የተደረጉ እንቅስቃሴዎችን እናንሣ::

በነሐሴ ወር አካባቢ ለቅድስት ሥላሴ መንፈሳዊ ኮሌጅ አስተዳደር አንድ ግብዣ ቀረበለት፡፡ ግብዣው የቀረበው Proclamtion Trust (http://www.proctrust.org.uk/) ከሚባል ከአንድ በእንግሊዝ ሀገር ከሚገኝ የፕሮቴስታንት ኮሌጅ ሲሆን ግብዣው የቀረበው በመቀሌ ዩኒቨርሲቲ በሚያስተምር በአንድ እንግሊዛዊ ፕሮቴስታንት አማካኝነት ነው፡፡

በግብዣው መሠረት ከሆነ ለኮሌጁ 30,000 ብር ያህል ይሰጠዋል፡፡ ኮሌጁ በዚህ ብር ለቀድሞ ተመራቂዎቹ የአምስት ቀናት ሴሚናር ያዘጋጃል፡፡ በዚህ ሴሚናር ላይ ዳግላስ ደንስ የተባለ ፓስተር የፕሮክላሜሽን ትረስት የመጽሐፍ ቅዱስ አስተማሪ "ሥነ ፍጥረት፣ የሰው ልጅ አወዳደቅ፣ ነገረ ድኅነት እና እግዚአብሔር ለዚህ ዓለም ስላለው ዕቅድ" ያስተምራል፡፡

ከዚህ አስገራሚ ግብዣ ጋር የሚከተሉት ጉዳዮችም ልብ ሊባሉ ይገባል፡፡
  • Proclamation trust ለዚህ ለኮሌጁ ርዳታ የሰጠው ስም Mission of help /የዕርዳታ ተልዕኮ/ የሚል ነው፡፡ ይህ ስም 20ኛው ክፍለ ዘመን ጀምሮ አንግሊካን ቤተ ክርስቲያን በቅኝ ግዛት በያዘቻቸው ቦታዎች የተሃድሶን እንቅስቃሴ ለመጀመር እንደ መግቢያ ለተጠቀመችበት ርዳታ ሲሰጥ የኖረ ስም ነው፡፡
  • Proclamation trust በኮሌጃችን የሚገኘውን አስተምህሮ ፕሮቴስታንታዊ ለማድረግ ለኮሌጁ መምህራን ነጻ የትምህርት ዕድል በመስጠት በማስተማር ላይ ይገኛል፡፡ በዚህ መሠረት ያለ ኮሌጁ እውቅና አንዳንድ መምህራን ወደ እንግሊዝ በመሔድ እየሠለጠኑ ነው፡፡

ከዚሁ ጋር በተያያዘ ይህንን proclamation trust ግብዣ ወደ ኮሌጅ ያመጡትና ሲያራግቡት የቆዩት በዚሁ የትምህርት ዕድል የተማሩና ለመማር በዝግጅት ላይ ያሉ የኮሌጅ ሠራተኞች ነበሩ፡፡ ወደፊትም ከኮሌጁ አባላት ባሻገር ተመሳሳይ የትምህርት ዕድል ለሌሎችም የቤተ ክርስቲያን አገልጋዮች ለመስጠት መታቀዱም ታውቋል፡፡

ምን ተወሰነ?
Proclamation trust ባቀረበው ግብዣ ላይ ለመወያየት የኮሌጁ አካዳሚክ ኮሚሽን ተሰበሰበ፡፡ በዚህ ውይይት ላይ ሁሉም በተለይም Father Dr. Josie (Jose) Jacob (በኮሌጁ በማስተማር ላይ ያለ የሕንድ ኦርቶዶክስ ቤተ ክርስቲያን ካህን) ሊመጣ ያለውን አደጋ በግልጽ በማሳየት በምንም ዓይነት ፕሮቴስታንቶች ወደ ኮሌጅ ሊገቡበት የሚችሉበት መንገድ መክፈት እንደሌለበት ተናገሩ፤ ተቃወሙ፡፡ ርዳታውን ልንቀበለው የምንችለው ትምህርቱ በኦርቶዶክሳውያን መምህራን ከተሰጠ ብቻ ነው የሚል ውሳኔም ተወሰነ፡፡

ይኸው ውሳኔ ለድርጅቱ ሲነገረውም ተቃውሞው የመጣው ከየት እንደሆነ በማወቁ Fr.Josie Jacob ከአምስቱ ቀን ለሁለት ሰዓታት ያህል እንዲያስተምሩ እንፍቀድላቸው የሚል አሳበ አቀረበ፡፡ ይህም አሳብ ተቀባይነት አላገኘም፡፡ የኮሌጁ ዲን ብፁዕ አቡነ ጢሞቴዎስይሁዳ ጌታን 30 ብር እንደሸጠው ቤተ ክርስቲያናችንን 30,000 ብር ለመሸጥ ፈቃደኛ አይደለንምበማለት ቁርጥ አቋማቸውን ጥያቄውን ሲያራግቡ ለነበሩ ግለሰቦች አቀረቡ፡፡ በዚህም መሠረት የቅድስት ሥላሴ መንፈሳዊ ኮሌጅ ግብዣውን እንደማይቀበል በአካዳሚክ ዲኑ በመ/ ፍስሐ ጽዮን ደመወዝ አማካኝነት proclamation trust  ተነገረው፡፡

I appreciate the writer. It is a well thought comment. But one sentence of the article stroked me. Paragraph 2 of the article told us that the invitation came through a Briton protestant who is teaching at Mekele University. Different experiences show us that the western world is executing its mission now a days, be it political or religious, through its agents who are in Ethiopia being hired in different colleges and universities. Except few, the majority of these 'scholars' are not getting their salary from the Ethiopian government. They ‘work’ getting the money from their own sources. They get big money from their western employers executing their hidden missions (spying, stealing faithful from EOTC, creating troubles in between Ethiopians, facilitate lootings of heritages from different monasteries, etc.). These people were also successful in penetrating the Holy Trinity Theological College itself. Hopefully, the writer of the article knows the agent who was 'employed' by the college getting the money from his outside sources which sent him or her for a mission. We know that he is not in the campus now but still in the country perhaps moved to AAU. There are stealers in the Patriarchate too. They are given all the right to do whatever they want for they speak English and their colour is white. They are making big big big money out of our heritages. There are agents throughout the country. Some are known very well, may be, even by the government. http://addisnegeronline.com/2010/07/tough-times-ahead-for-western-scholars-studying-ethiopia/ Heritages which have long been kept in different monasteries and churches are under organized and modern looting through the assistance of these spies. Call for the government - expel these people from the country!!! Call for students of higher education institutes across the country - keep an eye on these people. Call for the media - investigate cases and report it to the people. Let us stand up to keep our people, culture and history alive!!! Let all say a-m-e-n!!!

The Protestants are not working in the colleges alone they are working also in Abinet Schools. I remember a known scholar who have been teaching us bible in Sunday school when I was teenager. He is one of the scholars of the church and he is teacher at known abinet school. Last time I heard that he become tehadiso because of the hidden mission and trainings he got from Protestants. I heard they gave him and some other clergy men money so as to help their lives. Remember this man is not getting salary from the church and he is not able to work and live by himself. I want to mention also that Protestants are highly aggressive on the abinet schools. They know the source the church scholar is there. As we know the students are not matured in Gospel as a result they cannot identify the truth against the false mission.
For me for the church to continue with its people and grace , we need to follow some concepts:

1. The administration problems in the church should be solved
2. We need to avoid divisions among us. We have to respect other people’s thoughts and views as far as he is working for the church and the true word of God.
3. We have to make some restoration/transformation that is studied by our scholars
4. We the followers of the church should know our limits on the dogmatic and canonical issues of the church. Anybody in the church can participate in worship and development works but sibket should be given to the scholars who know the church very well.
5. We have to be consistent in our beliefs whatever comes and goes.
6. We have to avoid relation with Protestants. They have stolen many flocks and they have a plan to do it in modern way.

Here is one comment few weeks ago about የከሳቴ ብርሃን መንፈሳዊ ኮሌጅ: Please Fathers, brothers and sisters wake up

Is Bridge of Hope has a mission to Change Ethiopian Orthodox Church to Protestantism??

Bridges of Hope is partnering with the Ethiopian Orthodox Church to create a Masters level program that will provide a foundation for Holistic Community Development in the country as well as the first-ever Graduate Program for the Ethiopian Orthodox Church. Our goal is to equip 25 professors in the next 3 years who will go to train future priests for the next generation.
http://www.bridgesworldwide.org/ethiopia/masters-program/

Who is the founder of Bridge of Hope?

Bridges of Hope International is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 2002 by Dennis and Susan Wadley of Santa Barbara, California. Dennis Wadley is also Senior Pastor of Community Covenant Church in Santa Barbara, California dwadley@community-covenant.org


In their website explains how they invited to give a Master Program in our church. " .... in 2009, the Wadleys were asked to visit Mekele, Ethiopia to look into planting a Community Health Education (CHE) Program there. They were unexpectedly introduced to the leadership of the St. Frumentius Ethiopian Orthodox Theological College, and after forming a quick and natural bond, were invited to launch the nation’s first Ethiopian Orthodox Masters Program."
http://www.bridgesworldwide.org/about/mission-story/

On their face book they claim that "..For over a 1,000 years, the people of Northern Ethiopia have not had the Bible"???"in their own language...until now. Your gift of $8.00 will place a Tigrinyan language Bible into 5,000 churches. 5 million Ethiopians will learn about the love of God. ...


DennisWadley transitioned a small, traditional church with outdated bylaws into a large, dynamic cell church in Santa Barbara, CA. He suggests that pastors resist constitutional change until the cell church has been established: He suggests that a constitution be changed when the cell vision of the church is functioning and stable and the old constitution no longer reflects who they are as a church. We were a couple of years into our cell transition when we realized that what was on paper was not reflected in who we were. We then wrote the constitution to reflect who we were and what God was doing.

Dennis Wadley said,
We set up a constitution that reflected our denominations congregational structure, but only put ministry leaders in place who have risen up from among the cell ministry ranks.. . . The key is that the only way to become an Overseer is to first serve as a cell leader and then to move in to a role of overseeing cells. With this restriction, the Overseers leadership is fully committed to the vision of the church.
Wadley’s last two sentences reflect the goal behind this step in the process. The goal is to make sure those in leadership are 100% committed to cell ministry, not only by their words but by their actions.

SO I think, Bridge of Hope has a big hidden and dangerous mission for our church. I wish I was wrong.
የከሳቴ ብርሃን መንፈሳዊ ኮሌጅ can't find other Orthodox Church Universities to provide Masters program??? or they have hidden agendas too??.

I have faith in Jesus Christ who has been protecting us.

Dear from Canada,

It is not good blacking men from so far but if you want factual evidence ask the responsible bodies of the colleges and get how it is happened and will be happened.

What you read from Web and Reality are quite different.

FROM THE READING I UNDERSTAND CONTRADICTED IDEAS THEIR MAY BE DISAGREEMENT AMONG YOU GUYS!

I KNOW THAT ALMOST ALL OF YOU LEARNED IN EITHER PROTESTANT OR CATHOLIC INSTITUTE. IF THERE IS ANY PROTESTANT MOVMENT IN THE COLLEGE WHAT YOU ARE DOING FROM THERE? WHY NOT INFORM TO SYNOD?

UNLESS I WISH IF THE COLLEGE CLOSED FOR SOME YEARS TO CLEAR ALL THIS THINGS

Please don't generalize!!

In the Trinity College, the right subject is not given to the right teacher.We love if Jossi is not teaching Dogma and comparative theology.He can teach other subjects too.

The other thing is as far us we knows there is no protestantism in the college.This idea is only to attack one person who had a problem with administration currently in the college.
from the college!

I am not black-mailing any one almost all of my comment copied directly from their own website. So Who I have to believe? I am not judging the collage. They may have positive intention who knows?. But Jesus Christ knows their real intention. We may lie to people but we can't lie to Him.

I am not just suspicious like some people. Years ago, I am one of the persons used to take winter courses from Tehadsso(Protestant) groups in our Church(ETOC)almost all Sunday school members who participate in those courses joined protestant churches.I saw that in my eyes. I feel sorry for those brothers and sisters lost. Prise His name Lords of Lord, Kings of King, Jesus Christ has saved me from that dark mission.

My intention is only one & one that is to tell the truth and to defend the true Church of Jesus Christ.

As you said I encourage the responsible bodies of the colleges9የከሳቴ ብርሃን መንፈሳዊ ኮሌጅ) to explain their stand in this subject.

With great Love

Evidently, big issue has been raised by the contributor of the article which is well echoed by an anonym commentator and that of tewahido. But people are not warmly discussing on the topic as they do on other less important issues. Com n' people. Let us be children of our fathers. Let us not love gossips and silly discussions. Get to the point and forward your idea. To put it the issue raised in short - how can we protect our church and people from the western mercenaries who are doing their evil missions titled in different universities and colleges throughout the country?

Dear all, it is good that we discuss on such vital issues. I suggest that it is possible to defend against this issues into different ways. First is through uninterrupted prayer and supplication emanating from a faithful heart filled with love. Second is doing bottom up. If every body closes his door, where can the thief get a way to enter. what I mean is if we all are watchful and devoted in our parish, then it would be difficult for them to penetrate. But for our collegs I have one idea, why not we start a kind of "Mahibere Selase fund" where we contribute what we can and then the fund will be managed by the colleges to send our fathers to Egypt, India or Greece for higher studies?
what do u think?

dear "with great love" yalekegn, I thank you and I wrote because of the following.

I am working in Meklle University and studied geez language for six months there. I have a bit of information regarding the college. When I read in Deje Selam blog in October 2010 I got some unnecessary points and I tried to contact one of the leaders and I shared this information to him. He told me “many can be said but we have no time to give answers for such trouble makers who are denounced from the college due to their corruptive behavior; they can try misnaming for the goodwill yet they cannot erase the truth. You know, we are at Bethlehem [church] since our childhood and still we are serving our church by fixed on it and almost day & night free service for change. We are not child, laity, uneducated, shortsighted; we are not administering a single home like a householder does but we are leading a small Ethiopia; we are producing many disciples serving the church in their assigned place. we know ourselves that we are very heavenly & earthly responsible and accountable body that is why our fathers assigned us.”
And about the MA program, he asked me a question “do you believe we orthodox followers will be taught a religion by foreigners? Who to whom? May be the reciprocal can be true. No protestant can teach here about religion except secular science.”
In any case, we are open to give clarification for any stockholder.

thank you

I really appreciate the idea of Mekelle college and 1st Cor 3. They are busy and working for good. But here in Trinity there is no fruitful duty they started the new year by students demonstration and continue to blame each other.

Let me ask you one thing Why you don't fully concentrate on your calling and praying to God? is this kind of playing solution for your internal problem?

Are you sure that proclamation fund had a program in Mekelle? what you wrote is very shameful and disgrace your institute.Why you come and ask or visit the college?

This is my suggestion
The Ethiopian Orthodox Church has immense tradition which is Biblical and Historical. But everyone knows that the church is officially working with Protestants and Catholics on the issues of HIV /AIDS and other social or national for the advantage of the people in the country.
Because of the curb of skilled man powers many of today’s church scholars including the patriarch and some of the Bishops of the church were learned in Protestant and Catholic or non denominational institutes of western countries. This practice has been continuing since the circumstances in the country enhanced in the future.
Currently the big debate is about the relationship of the theological institutes and some mission based foreign organizations or individuals. When we see the fact, for a long year the institutes are not free from the support of such organizations for example:
The Holy Trinity Theological College is sending the students for higher study to different countries until now by the money given from one Re- known Catholic Organization and The HIV /AIDS program of the college budgets is from well known protestant organization
If the college discontinues these it mayn’t survive no more. Therefore they continue receiving in cash and in kind. I don’t understand why they mention only one issue because there are other issues which are almost the same. When these organizations give money they also need something in re-ward.

The only solution is set up the college in order to have a high-quality management and academic stuff, which help them to continue higher studies in the country

To “brother/sister work in Meklle University”

I appreciate taking the concern to the leaders in the collage. We need a lot like you we believe in defending the mother church teaching. To the main topic - as you said a couple of months ago when I read on this blog about ብሪጅ ኦፍ ሆፐ and the collage I tried to do some research about ብሪጅ ኦፍ ሆፐ and the founder based on my research and I commented my concern about my mother church here other than that I never been on that collage. Almost nine years ago I have been in great city of Axuim. I think as a church member we have the right to ask, what is going on in our church properties. And the collage leaders they have the responsibility of clarifying any questions raised from the church members.

Long time ago I had been participating the hidden agenda of Tehadsso. When we raised any questions about Tehaddso. The leaders of that mission፣ they used to deny the existence of Tehdisso by saying (ተሃድሶ የሚባል የለም፤ አንዳንዶችህ ዝም ብለው የሚያስወሩት ነው በማለት ይክዱ ነበር). Here I am not accusing the collage leaders and community. But ብሪጅ ኦፍ ሆፐ in their website about the agreement “ Our goal is to equip 25 professors in the next 3 years who will go to train future priests for the next generation. And On their facebook they stated "..For over a 1,000 years, the people of Northern Ethiopia have not had the Bible"???"in their own language...until now. Your gift of $8.00 will place a Tigrinyan language Bible into 5,000 churches. 5 million Ethiopians will learn about the love of God. ...” so if I questions the mission of ብሪጅ ኦፍ ሆፐ am I a trouble maker? No, never. Northern Ethiopia will learn about the love of God, is that means they don’t know the love of God before?

O my country's people still we are living in a primitive life? I am nervous on your civil war in the 20first era when world is coping globalization. Are you full filling the prophecy of Isaiah, " those who have eye but no outlook, who have heart but not think...."?
Please run after developing our church's institutions, dioceses, parishes, and associations. We would have not been come to abroad had we had Masters & Doctoral programs in our country there. Do you believe those who joined in Protestant and Catholic seminaries will change their faith? If you believe so, absolutely wrong. Of course, if he/she has no base in his initial program like Sunday school devotees, he/she may be set in a dilemma spot; otherwise and the fact everybody studied the doctrine of protestant and Catholics in his/her diploma and bachelor level for no new at all that can convert him/her.

Brotherly, I am eager to advise you:
Please please please, love & live one another; go to hand to hand; make peaceful relationship with any capable body even why not with atheist for common development but keep your faith in parallel; don't dismantle each other; use your scholars properly instead of persecuting them and if there is misreading each other let you get face to face discussion than throwing stones through electronic mirror. Learn learn and learn deeply to stop creating & multiplying enemies since no development among desocialization.

Lastly, how can we return to our
beloved home-Ethiopia if you are ruining each other?

hello my brother who said Fr,Jossi can't teach dogma and comparative theology, who can teach from the college those subjects? have u attened his class?i think u don't know his class or u don't understand what he said. Me from the college

Anonymous said...

to 'me from the college'
My brother, Dogma is not similar to other theological subjects, I believe that, to teach the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahido Church Dogma, more than having a degree or a Masters the teacher must be the member of the Church and familiar with the tradition particularly Geez Language. He is not either of these but we have our own scholar in the college but not teaching us
Dogma is the basis of the Church teachings and we have to know and comprehend the subject matter clearly.

Dear ‘me from college’
I am not glad of your response because you are responding in the behalf of jossi or he gave you in English and you translated to Amharic.
Now you made a mistake a great mistake, me and many other brothers still respect the tradition of the church that written in Geez language and our beloved fathers or scholars of the church I am so sorry for your shameful word about them.
‘በግቢው ያሉት የሸመገሉ መምህራን እነሱ በያዙት ሞያ ሌላ አስተማሪ ሊያስተምር አይወዱም’ who teaching more than them? They have the knowledge, experience of the subject, wrote books…… have good understanding of the tradition of the church. What is you aim and advantage bay disgracing their name? are you one the one who working with protestants cos one of their aim is attacking church scholars? My suggestion is we have a time to teach but now this is their time.
‘ሌላው ጆሲ የቤተ ክርስቲያኒቱ አባል ስላልሆነ ዶግማ ማስተማር የለበትም ያልኸው፣ ለመሆኑ አምስቱ አሐት ቤተ ክርስቲያናት የሚባሉ ለይተህ ታውቃቸዋለህ? አሐት የተባሉበት’ኮ የሚከተሉት ‘ዶግማ’ አንድ ስለሆነ ነው፤ ከኛ ዶግማ ቅንጣትም ታህል ልዩነት የለባቸውም። ስለዚህ ዐቅም አለኝ ብለህ እንደገባህ ሁሉ ከግል ረብ ፈላጊዎችን ሳትተባበር ከኛ ጋር ሆነህ ተሎ ምድር ሳይመሽብህ ሰውየውን ተጠቀምበት።’

Example we have the known dogmatic books like ‘haymanota abw’ is jossi referring from haymanot abaw or somebody translate for him? For me no problem I will learn from our beloved traditional church fathers which you said ‘shimagilwoch’ but my advise is we have to use them today no one is representing them. You already start to fever foreign teachers ‘abatoch egir sir silaltmarik yihon? Esti asibibat’
As far as I know jossi is not a member of EOTC and his church in India has many different ideas with our church. In addition to this he was learning in Catholic institute and still has high attachment with them.
He can teach other courses like Management, leadership….. Other than Ethiopian Orthodox Theology
Wish you all the best, if you have a position or opportunity try work for good and just! Not for jossi

I have one question for theology college
Why you don’t make use of dogma and doctrine teachers from quite a lot of scholars of the church including Bishops? If a foreign person teaches, these courses, it might be dishonor for the college and the church. Please take a measure before long. If there is no subject for Jossi to teach he has to gain knowledge of Ethiopian tradition so that he benefit a lot or he know how to find other jobs

hi brothers i did not comment in Amharic and i do not dishonor my scholars of the college. even now they are giving me courses. But i like to be a course which focus on indigenous scholars like st.Yared, Abba Giyorgis... their teaching on different dogmas but the course called dogma & comparative theology which is giving now can be given by jossi since the media is not Geez.
