እውን የማኅበረ ቅዱሳንና የኦርቶዶክስ "ተሐድሶ" ፍልሚያ ወይስ የኦርቶዶክስ ቤተ ክርስቲያን ህልውና ጉዳይ?


(አዲሱ ተስፋዬ/ READ IN PDF):- ከትላልቆቹ ያገራችን ባለስልጣናት ጀምሮ ታች እስካለው ሕዝብ ድረስ  ማኅበረ ቅዱሳን  የበርካቶች መነጋገርያ ከሆነ ከራርሟል:: የሰሞኑን ግን ለየት የሚያደርገው ራሱን " ኦርቶዶክስ “ተሐድሶ” " በማለት የሚጠራው ድርጅት በማኅበሩና በተዋሕዶ እምነታቸው ላይ ጽኑ አቋም ባላቸው  ኦርቶዶክስ ሃይማኖት አባቶች ላይ ለማንበብ የሚዘገንኑ (character assassinating) ጽሑፎችን እያስነበበ ነው ከዚህም አልፎ  የ”ተሐድሶ”  ቡድኖች አቡነ ጳውሎስን የተቃወሙ አባቶች ላይ ስማቸውን የሚያጠፋ በርካታ መጽሀፍት እስከመታተም ተደርሷል (አቡነ ሳሙአልን አቡነ አብርሃምን አቡነ ሚካኤል እና ሌሎች ጳጳሳትን ስም እያጠፉ የወጡት መጻህፍትን ያስታወሷል) አንዳንድ ሃላፊነት የጎደላቸውና የድረገጻቸውን traffic rank ከመጨመር የዘለለ አርቀው ማሰብ የተሳናቸው የፖለቲካ ዌብሳይቶችም እነዚህኑ ጽሑፎች በየድረ ገጻቸው ላይ በመለጠፍ ለብዙዎች አስነብበዋል
ጽሑፎቹን ያነበቡ በርካቶች የዋሀንም የችግሩን መሰረታዊ ምክንያት ባለመረዳት "የ”ተሐድሶ” ና የማኅበረ ቅዱሳን ጦርነት"በማለት እንደዘበት ሲመለከቱትና ሲገረሙበት ይስተዋላል ውስጠ ሚስጥሩን ያወቁና ውዝግቡ "የውክልና ጦርነት " መሆኑን የተገነዘቡ ጥቂቶችም የኢትዮጵያ ተዋሕዶ ቤተ ክርስቲያን ህልውናዋን ጥያቄ ውስጥ ያስገባ ችግር ውስጥ መግባቷን ይተነትናሉ ለመሆኑ ግን የማኅበረ ቅዱሳንና የ”ተሐድሶ”  ገመና ምን ይመስላል? ከሁለቱም በስተጀርባ ያለው አካል ማነው? የሁለቱ አካላት መሰረታዊ አለመግባባትስ ምክንያቱ  ምንድነው?

ቅድመ ነገረ “ተሐድሶ”
በርካታ ሚሲዎናውያን ከረጅም ግዜ ጀምሮ ወደ ኢትዮጵያ ማቅናታቸው ይታወቃል በተለይ የካቶሊክና የፕሮቴስታንት ሚሲዮናውያን ለዚህ ተጠቃሾች ናቸው:: እነዚህ ሁለት የሚሲዮን ቡድኖች እርስ በርስ የማይስማሙና የማይገናኙ ቢሆኑም የሚያመሳስላችው ግን በርካታ ባህርያት ነበሯቸው ሁለቱም  " ሀይማኖት ለመስበክ ነው የገባነው" ቢሉም ÷ በተግባር ግን በገቡበት ሀገር ስራቸው ፖለቲካዊ ነበር የሁለቱም ሚሲዮናውያን ኢላማ  ያልተጠመቀው ሕዝብ ሳይሆን ባርባና በሰማንያ ቀኑ የተጠመቀው የተዋሕዶ ተከታከታይ እንደነበር በወቅቱ የተጻፉ የታሪክ ማስረጃዎች ያስገነዝባሉ የካቶሊኮቹ ሚሲዮናውያን ይሄ ቅሰጣቸው ሲታወቅና ካገር መባረራቸው እንደማይቀር ሲያውቁ እነሱን ወክሎ የነሱን ስራ የሚያስፈጽሙ " ቅባትና ጸጋ" የሚባሉ ቡድኖችን ፈጥረው የተዋሕዶ ቤተ ክርስቲ ያንን ከሁለት ለመክፍልና አዳክሞ ለመጣል ከፍተኛ ስራ ቢሰሩም ያሰቡት ሳይሳካ ቤተ ክርስቲ ያንም ሳትከፈል እስካሁን ቆይታለች።

“ኦርቶዶክስ “ተሐድሶ” ”
የፕሮቴስታንት ሚሲዮናውያንም የተጠቀሙት ተመሳሳይ ስልትና ሴራ ነው። በመጀመርያ ወደ ኢትዮጵያ ሲገቡ ያስፈቀዱት "ሀይማኖት ለሌለውና ላረማዊው ወንጌልን ለሌላውም ክርስቲያን ደግሞ  ስልጣኔን  እናስተምራለን በማለት ሲሆን ራእያቸውምየኢትዮጵያ ተዋሕዶ ቤተ ክርስቲያንን እንደግፋለን" የሚል ነበር ።ወደ ኢትዮጵያ ሲገቡ በግዜው ለነበሩ የመንግስት አካላት ያስገቡት የተልእኮ እቅድ የኢትዮጵያ ተዋሕዶ ቤተ ክርስቲያንን ማገዝ እንጂ ሌላ ቤተ ክርስቲያን መክፈት ወይም ቤተ ክርስቲያኗን የሚቃወም ሥራ መስራት አልነበረም።

 " In 1924 the Ethiopian missionary Association was formed with a mission statement to revive the orthodox church and not setup a separate church " [i]
ምንም እንኳን በወረቀት ያሰፈሩት ዓላማ ይሄ ቢሆንም በተግባር የሚያደርጉትና ያደርጉት እውነታ ግን ከዚህ የተለየ ነበር ይህንንም የታሪክ ሊቃውንቱ እንዲህ ሲሉ ይገልጹታል
 "Missionary efforts in Ethiopia have generally had to goals: to reform the Ethiopian Orthodox Church and to establish independent congregations taught and supervised by the missionaries. The missionary effort of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries often ended up doing both” [ii]
አሁን አሁን ራሳቸው የሚያውጧቸው ድርሳናት ላይ የወቅቱን የተዋሕዶ ቤተ ክርስቲ ያንን የማደስ ( ሚሲዮናዊ ማድረግ)  ድብቅ ዓላማቸውን እንዲህ ሲሉ  ገልጸውታል::           
"Modernizing Ethiopian society wasn’t the main agenda of protestant missionaries of the 17th century. Their main agenda was reforming Ethiopian church".[iii]

ዋና ዓላማቸው በግልጽና በግልጽ እንዳስቀመጡት የኢትዮጵያ ኦርቶዶክስ ተዋሕዶ ቤተ ክርስቲያንን ማደስ በሚል ፈሊጥ መከፋፈልና ማፈራረስ ነበር ከራሳቸው ድርሳናት መረዳት እንደሚቻለው ጻጋናቅባትን የካቶሊክ ሚሲዮናውያን የኢትዮጵያ ኦርቶዶክስ ተዋሕዶ ቤተ ክርስቲ ያንን ለመከፋፈልና አዳክሞ ለመገርሰስ የፈጠሯቸው እንደሆኑ ሁሉ  “ተሐድሶ” ም ( ኦርቶዶክስ ተሃድሶ) የፕሮቴስታንት ሚሲዮናውያን ቤተ ክርስቲ ያንን ለመከፋፈልና አዳክሞ ለመገርሰስ ይረዳቸው ዘንድ የፈጠሩት እንቅስቃሴ ነው

ኦርቶዶክስ “ተሐድሶ”    ሚሲዮናወያኑ በኢትዮጵያ ተዋሕዶ ቤተ ክርስቲያን ላይ ከጥንት ጀምሮ አውጀው የነበረውን ጦርነት በውክልና የሚዋጋ (proxy war) ወኪል እንጂ በራሱ የቆመ ወይም ኢትዮጵያዊ መሰረት ያለው ቡድን አይደለም። የሚታዘዘውም የሚመራውም አይዞህ ባዮቹም እነዚሁ ምስጢረ ብርቱዎቹ ሚሲዮናውያን ናቸው። ነገር ግን በእግዚአብሔር ቸርነት በቅዱሳን ጸሎትና ትጋት ያሰቡት ለበርካታ ክፍለ ዘመናት የተጠነሰሰ ሴራ ሳይሳካ ቅድስት ቤተ ክርስቲያን እስክ 21ኛው ክፍለ ዘመን ደርሳለች። አሁን ባለንበት 21ኛው ክፍለ ዘመንም ካላፈው ስህተታቸው በመማር አዲስ ወረራና ደባ ጀምረዋል በመሰረቱ ማንኛውም የሃይማኖት ድርጅት እምነቱን ማሰራጨትና መብቱ ሊሆን ይችላል በማያምኑበት እምነት ቤት ውስጥ ገብቶ ሌላውን መዝለፍ  ለማፍረስ ማሴር ግን ወንጀል ነው

 የደርግ መንግስት ወድቆ አማጺው ቡድን አዲስ አበባ ሲገባ የነበረውን ክፍተት በመጠቀም ከተለያዩ የሚሲዮን ድርጅቶች ቤተ ክርስቲ ያኒቷ ላይ የስድብና የትንኮሳ ውርጅብኝ ይዝንብ ጀመር። ከዛም አልፎ ተርፎ በወቅቱ ለነበሩት ጠቅላይ ሚኒቴርና የአመራር አካላት ከኢትዮጵያ ኦርቶዶክስ ቤተ ክርስቲያን እንዲሸሹና ቤተ ክርስቲ ያኒቷንም በተቻላቸው እንዲያዳክሙ የሚያሳስብ መልእክት ከነኝሁ ሚሲዮናውያን ቤተመንግስት ድረስ በድፍረት አስከመላክ ደረሱ ።መቀመጫውን አሜሪካን ያደረገው ዎርልድ ሚኒስትሪስ ለአቶ ታምራት ላይኔ የላከውና መላው ኣለም ያነበው ዘንድ በዌብ ሳይቱ እስካሁን የለጠፈው መልክት ቅንጫቢ  ይሄንን ይመስላል::

To the Government of Ethiopia:
My name is Jonathan Hansen. I am an ordained minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the living God. I travel now primarily to countries where God has given me a message for either a person, the Christian community, the government or the nation…

The divine warning from the Lord was:"Remove yourself from the prostitute if you want to live!"
God in his mercy is telling the Ethiopian government to remove itself from the influence of the Orthodox Church. It does not preach and teach the true Gospel of Jesus Christ, but the doctrine of demons (fallen angels)….


"Your previous government slept with the prostitute of death then; the current government is also sleeping with this Angel of Death. Both governments listened and took her advice. God has warned this present government to break away from her or it will die too; that the next government will continue to sleep, eat and drink with this same prostitute and together they will join others in going against Israel. The prostitute is the Orthodox Church." [iv]

ወዲያውም ራሱንኦርቶ ጴንጤየሚል ቡድን ቤተ ክርስቲ ያንን ያምሳት ጀመር የዚሁ ቡድን ዓላማም አንድ ነበር- የቤተ ክርስቲያንን ትምህርት በማጥፋት በፕሮቴስታንታዊ አስተምሮ መተካት። ለዚህም ዓላማው መሳካት የመለመላቸውና በስውር ሲያሰለጥናቸው የነበሩት አንዳንድ የቀድሞው የሃይማኖተ አበው አባላት ቤተክርስቲያኒቱን አመሷት::በተለይ በሀረር ናዝሬት  ባሉ አብያት ክርስቲያናትና ምእመናን ላይ ከባድ ወከባና ውዥንብር ፈጠረ ጥቂት የማይባሉ ምእመናንም ከናት ቤተ ክርስቲ ያናቸው ለማስኮብለል ቻለ። ይሄው ራሱን ኦርቶ ጴንጤ እያለ የሚጠራው ቡድን ግን  እንዳሰበው ብዙ ርቀት ሳይጓዝ ከማኅበረ ቅዱሳንና ከበርካታ የተዋሕዶ አባቶች ትጋት አናቱን ተመታ። በርካታ ፊታውራሪዎቹም ተወግዘው ተለዩ።

አዲሱ ስልት  - ቤተ ክርስቲያኗ ጉያ ውስጥ ተደብቆ ኦርቶዶክስን መገዝገዝ
ይህንን የተመለከቱት አዝማቾቻችው ግን የተረፉት የ”ተሐድሶ”  አባላት እስኪጠናከሩ ድረስ አንገታቸውን ቀብረውና መስለው በተዋሕዶ ቤተ ክርስቲያን ውስጥ እንዲቀመጡና ቤተ ክርስቲ ያኗን በስውር እንዲገዘግዙ  መከሩ። ይህንንም ምስጢር ፓስተሮቻቸው በተለያየ ግዜ ገልጸውታል::
“the movement grew swiftly and incorporated evangelical themes into the orthodox liturgy. Eventually it grew so large that the group was expelled from the orthodox church. Now called the reform orthodox church , the 70,000 plus believers maintain a connection to their orthodox roots but exibit an evangelical emphasis .[v]

ይህም ራስን ደብቆ የተዋሕዶ ቤተ ክርስቲ ያንን ውስጥ ውስጡን መገዝገዙ ምን ያህል ውጤታማ እንደሆነ አዝማች የሆኑት አንዱ ፓስተር እንዲህ ሲሉ ገልጠውታል::
“They are doing a good job of staying close enough to their roots to be attractive to other orthodox believers and seekers”, one missionary said recently. [vi]

የዚህ ቡድን ዓላማ ቤተ ክርስቲያንን ወደ ሚሲዮናውያን ካምፕ መለወጥ መሆኑ በመታወቁ ከቤተ ክርስቲያን ቢገለልም በርካታ አባላቱ ግን ራሳቸውን ደብቀው ውስጥ ውስጡን ሲደራጁ የቤተ ክርስቲያን ያልሆነ ትምህርትን ሲያስተምሩ ቤተ ክርስቲ ያኗን ሲንዱ ነበር:: AD 2000 የተባለውም ድረ ገጽ ይህንኑ ኩነት እንዲህ ሲል ይገልጸዋል::
“Orthodox hierarchy has refused the group permission to meet in churches or address  congregations. The group doesn’t want to leave the Orthodox Church but to bring reforms and help people move beyond nominalism and experience a vibrant relation with Christ “[vii]

ይሄው ስውር የ”ተሐድሶ”  ቡድን ግን እንዳሰበውና እንደታዘዘው የተዋሕዶ ወጣቶችን በጅምላ ወደ ሚሲዮናውያን ጎራ መውሰድ አልቻለም:: ለዚህም ዋናው ምክንያት "ሀይማኖት እንዳባቶቻችን ጥበብ እንደጊዜአችን" በሚል መንፈስ ወጣቱ በዘመናዊው ጥበብ እንዲበረታ ነገር ግን ያባቶቹን ተዋሕዶ ሃይማኖትን ግን ሳይበርዝና ሳይከልስ እንዲከተል ሌት ተቀን የሚጥረው ማኅበረ ቅዱሳን ነበር:: እንዳሰበው እንዳይንቅሳቀስ ዋነኛ ጋሬጣ የሆነበትን ማኅበረ ቅዱሳንን ካላፈረሰ የትም እንደማይደርስ የተረዳው የሄው የ”ተሐድሶ”  ቡድን  ማኅበረ ቅዱሳንን ለማፈራረስ ያስችለኛል የሚለውን ሁሉ ሴራ ጎንጉኖ አስፈላጊውን ዝግጅት ካደረግ በኋላ ላይ ግልጽ ትንኮሳና ሴራ ጀመረ::

ማኅበረ ቅዱሳን

ማኅበረ ቅዱሳን በኢትዮጵያ ኦርቶዶክስ ተዋሕዶ ቤተ ክርስቲያን በሰንበት ትምህርት ቤቶች ማደራጃ መምሪያ ስር ተዋቅሮ በቅዱስ ሲኖዶስ ጸድቆ በተቀመጠለት መተዳደርያ ደንብ መሰረት መንፈሳዊና ማኅበራዊ አገልግሎት በመስጠት ላይ የሚገኝ ማኅበር ነው::[viii] ይሔው ማኅበር ወደ 80 ሺህ የሚጠጉ አባላት ሲኖሩት በሰሜን አሜሪካ ዩሮፕ እስያ በርካታ ያፍሪካ ሀገራት ቀጠናና ንኡስ ማእከላት አሉት:: ይሄው ማኅበር በአለማችን ላይ ካሉት ጠንካራ ከሚባሉ ክርስቲያናዊ ማኅበራት አንዱ ነው:: Big dreams, Tough reality : Ethiopia students at crossroads በሚለው ጽሑፉ ላይ Peter Lemiuex ማኅበሩን እንዲህ ሲል ይገልጸዋል::
“the Ethiopian Orthodox student association Mahibere Kidusan, or “Fellowship of Saints,” which holds weekly meetings such as this one. Organized under the Sunday School Department of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, Mahibere Kidusan has chapters in some 20 universities across Ethiopia as well as in other African countries, in Europe and in the United States. Some 80,000 Ethiopian Orthodox students are currently enrolled in its three-year church education program, which runs parallel to the university’s academic curriculum. The size and global reach of its deeply committed membership are all the more impressive since Mahibere Kidusan obtained its official license only 18 years ago. Almost a testament to its prominence, a nearly finished seven-story building close to campus will house its headquarters.” [ix]

ማኅበረ ቅዱሳን በኢትዮጵያ ባሉ  በያንዳንዱ ዪንቨርስቲዎች ባሉ ግቢ ጉባአያት  እያደረገ ያለውንም እንቅስቃሴ እንዲህ ሲል ይቃኘዋል።
“Mahibere Kidusan champions the Orthodox faith as a bulwark against society’s many temptations. More controversially, it views the Orthodox Church as a bastion of traditional Ethiopian culture and identity — distinct from the West and the East — that its members should embrace and protect from outside influences. The message resonates strongly with today’s Ethiopian Orthodox youth, who bear witness to their rapidly changing society.” [x]

“a group within the EOC called "Mahibere Kidusan" ("Fellowship of Saints") had incited members to …. The increasingly powerful group's purpose is to counter all reform movements within the EOC and shield the denomination from outside threats.”[xi]

It is very true ye tehadeso alama is too destroy tewahedo and this maheber really fought for 20 years. But I need to say the statement that says" member of maheber kedusan are around all Sunday school and because of there member’s existence tehadeso can't teach there menfekena. That is not true statement. Yes Mahebere kedusan is fighting with tehadesso but pleas there are more Sunday schools that were fighting over 20 years. I have example Gofa Geberal Sunday school kicked out the first tehadeso sebake wengele 23 years ago. And after that they always close there door and struggle and fight with tehadeso. And even though that I love mahbere kedussan, those two maheber kedussan always who used to report about gofa geberal. They come once per month and they know nothing deep about that Sunday school. And they even tried to give tehadeso name to this Sunday school.So it is not only mahebere kedusan most sunday schools are also stuggled tehedso for almost 25 years. So and it is not because of the mehbere kedusan members that sunday schools know about tehadeso. Please don't give credit somthing maheber kedusan disn't participate. May be if you don't know let me tell you, mahebere kedusan members some of them they are registering at sunday school because of the rule that mahbere kedusan force them to register but they always think sunday school isnot for educated people like them

I second the first comment by Anonymous and planning to read the detialed atatched docuemnts too.

Also I have one point to mention about saying things related to ABATOCHACHEN (Our Fatehrs) that Deje Selam also will say whatever it is including some YEBETACHEN GEBENAS on this site which can be seen by anyone with access to internet. Please to fight those like Abaselama (with no sign of preaching peace), you should not follow their foot step. Do what is constracive for all of us and pray to God to save his church.

my appitaite to read those docuemnt and get realy picture is so wide.

Thank you.

Well written, brother. What concerns me much is the fact that there are many children of the church who have no idea of the magnitude of the conspiracies that are being tailored in dark rooms. I think more work needs to be done to awaken our fellow Christians.

@ June 9, 2012 2:56 AM, who say "I am deeply worried about...?"

First, would like to say many thanks to Addis. May God keep you strong and blessed. I hope your research will continue and expose the tactics and intentions of 'tehadisos'.

Now to @ June 9, 2012 2:56 AM -
The thing is my brother/sister, if we keep ourselves within the true teachings of our holy church, we will know the heretics directly or indirectly. Just let us keep ourselves stick to the dogmatic belief of our church, keep within the church and let us get ourselves always learners under the church. Then we will have the power and sense to know who they are. You will just get them from their acts and the way they preach or talk. But, it doesn't mean that we judge them at once. Actually, it needs attentive follow up and observations. And coordination with all the children of the church and Sunday Schools (including MK, Anti-Tahadiso associations) will workout. Don't worry, just do your part and inform brothers and sisters around if you have to say anything from your observations and experiences, and then study on. Above all, God will expose them. Let us do our part, and leave the rest to God.

If you have a Sunday School around, they will surely tell you a lot in this regard.

Keep your concern alive and pray. God will give you a relief and the skills to address your concerns.

Dear dejeselam I thought you are wise dont seem to be...
and i am very sorry for your postings because you are not defending the church in any case rather exagerating the problems. Look the protestants how they are wisely utilizing the current opportunities or openings they go forward .... but from your side you guys are narowing or creating a problem for the church. i would like to say be fast to be the first to defend and contribute for our church. on this time even we couldnt be maintain the previous status of our church that we accepted from our parents rather we are fighting ourselves for diferent reasons. Then lets be wise (think twice) for progress or to defend our church we cant do anything by creating violent or blaming each other.
Thanks for having this oportunity

The conispiracy of destroying the orthodox church and its culture is not only in Ethiopia but it is true in other orthodox churchs as well.

Those morons who are thinking that they are part of the "modernization"reform which i call it conispiracy for destructuion, should realize that they are gradually giving up their religious identitiy to those who would like to destroy our ancient civilization which is manifested Interms of elevated consiousness and abstruct feelings of religious values which prevailed in olden and Golden churchs like ours . which was excisting even before the land which they are now living is identified.

wake up friends!!!

This message is for the Person who wrote about Gofa Gabriel.

Wendeme, you would have been wise if you didn't say what you said. I am from Gofa Gebriel too.
Do you know that Mahibere Kidusan is formed by Sunday school students????????
I am sure if you know this you wouldn't say anything like that.
Sunday school students who are really concerned about their church and who got the chance to go to higher education start to get together and they finally form MK.
Try to see the bigger picture. This article is particularly written to put clear picture for those who confuse the fact with MK, And for those who thinks the war of that is opened at the church with MK. So that they can have clear picture of what is going on and they can contribute their share. It is not for you. Because you know. But we have peoples who always think that this is the churches or Mk’s politics. This is completely the opposite. They need information that will help them to understand it is about the church’s existence.

Every Sunday school has its share. Gofa is not the only one who gets rid of tehadiso. There are a lot of Sunday school who did the same. The thing is we all need to get together. Mk can rich to the place where Sunday schools can't rich. They can take care of the disciples around their circle. And Mk can serve as a network. Mk can gather all the facts and compile together and inform everyone. That is it. Otherwise trust me all Mk members originally come from Sunday school. If there is any MK member who thinks Sunday school is not good enough to him, then he is fool ( that means he is not good enough for Sunday school). But you have to know that this is an individual person who has his own personality. And he can not represent MK. He represent himself only.
And I need to tell you that I love my Sunday school and everyone of you.
Thanks brother.

Calling Them Tehadiso is Wrong
The secret mission of heretics should not be called ‘tehadiso’ because, in my view, the use of the word 'tehadiso' to explain something wrong, negative, heresy, is basically misusage of the word. Under no circumstances that the good word 'tehadiso' can be used to mean heresy/heretic. It always has a positive meaning. ' What those 'menafikan' say is negative about our church: cut this, shorten that, this is long, that is unnecessary, do not praise or prostrate for Virgin Mary, the Angels, and Saints... Etc. They are trying to change the good traditions, canon and dogma of the church that lead to eternal life to something earthly and ugly. This is heresy, not 'metades'. We, Christians, need 'metades'. There is not another context to use the word 'tehadiso' to mean 'nufake'. Things are reformed to be better, not to become worse. Those who started to use this nice word to describe something wrong need to use appropriate words or phrases because we need to use the word ‘TEHADISO’ in our church and in everyday life of Christians. Hence, as our church calls them 'menafikan', we just have to call them 'menafikan or ‘wushoch’ or atsirare betekirstian. Also, in my opinion, if one says 'tehadiso menafikan', it means 'menafikan' who abandoned heresy and become True Christians, not who changed to 'minfikina. Besides this, the expression that says, ‘BETEKIRSTIAN ATITADESIM IS WRONG.’ I argue that BETEKIRSTIAN NEEDS TEHADISO! The question should be what kind of tehadiso? I would say BETEKIRSTIAN as an association of Christians needs TEHADISO when its members practice unchristian values, when disagreements and disunity exist among them, when they fail to carry their mission of preaching the redemption paid by Lord to mankind to those who are afar from this eternal life, and so on. Moreover, when an individual Christian leads unchristian life and engulfed in a sea of sin, he/she needs TEHADISO. Not only these when the church’s overall leadership and bureaucratic management is ineffective and corrupt as it is so nowadays, it needs TEHADISO! Thus, I believe that now is the time to undertake TEHADISO!

The only and ultimate solution is to correct the Church's leadership. MK need to fight to death to bring about a leadership that takes care of the Church, not one that gives priority to the government. MK has to lead the faithful in bringing real change in the church by standing up for truth and the church. So far MK has stood with those forces who are destroying the Church and the Country. Lately MK tries to look opponent for its leadership is questioned by the government and Aba Paulos, NOT because the Church gets hurt. The Church started to have gotten hurt since 1991 when the group in the Palace siezed power and subsequently appointed Aba Paulos as its protector in the see of Tekilehaimanot. Do you want people rise against people??? It is the Church's leadership that can prescibe a remedy for this as it had been doing for centuries in tha past. For me this article seems that it is part of the 'government's' effort to divert attention from real issues of the day and thus divd the people to extend its ending time. If you really feel the pain of the Church first reject Aba Paulos,then condemn the destructive acts of the government against the Church's holy places and rights. Then we trust you.

You seem to create a conflict of terminology where it doesn't exist!

Luther's reformation(tehadiso)is the program of the tehadiso or reformation advocates who, under the cover of seeming to be "orthodox" are doing the work of their protestant sponsors to
internally devour and destroy our Tewahedo faith and tradition!

If you understand the above mentioned historical truths, you don't have to "declare a war" to save the word tehadiso, which by the way is also how the menafiqan identify themselves with.

A christian who erred and wants to come back to tewahedo, doesn't need "tehadiso" but ንስሐ! You surely confuse the two differet teachings because, as it seems that you are proceeding from your definition of the word tehadiso to mean "metades". But that is not the teaching of the bible and our church!
"ንስሐ፡ግቡ፡ኃጢአትም፡ዕንቅፋት፡እንዳይሆን
ባችሁ፡ከኃጢአታችሁ፡ሁሉ፡ተመለሱ...ስለዚ
ህ፡ተመለሱና፡በሕይወት፡ኑሩ።"
ሕዝቀኤል ም. 18 ከቁ. 30-32
Yo can surely see that there is a world of a difference between tehadiso as a protestant movement, and the teachings of our church about ንስሐ and መመለስ!

I urge you not to waste your time to defend a word which does not reflect the teachings of our church.

For EwunetTenagari,

I feel you missed to understand very important thing, or you must be pretending to paint positivity to the word 'tehadio' or else you may be a bit an outsider to the church but have something an interest to achieve tacitly through the church. You know, the devil never comes with the name 'devil'. He shelters himself in a bandage of good/positive name. You know as well, when Protestants came to Africa, they came with the bible, using the same name we use - Christianity. The famous saying of Jomo Kenyatta could easily and briefly address my argument. "When the missionaries came to Africa, they had the Bible and we had the land. They taught us to pray with our eyes closed. When we opened them, we had the Bible in our hand, and they had the land".

Now, these heretics and protestants say this - "the church needs tehadiso". For them 'tehadiso' means to wash completely the teachings of orthodox tewahido, destabilize the church and insert the dogmatic teachings of protestants, and thus finally transform it into one of the western protestants. So, we are forced to use the word 'tehadiso' in their understanding not in a common sense of managerial terminology - which refers to administrative reform. When we see 'tehadiso' positively in terms of your understanding and we continue praying closing our eyes as per the teachings of tehadiso, we open our eyes very late after they would have sown the seeds of heresy in the church. Never, thus, we allow this to happen to our holly church. So, we don't use the word 'tehadio' just for the sake of administrative reform, which I do believe the church should go in, I mean administratively. Having said this, I ask you a question - do you still believe in your argument?

For me, 'tehadiso' is just cover name of protestantism, they use when they come to and insert themselves in Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahido Church.

Wendeme the only thing I am saying this is a worng conclusion from the wirter" it is because of Mahbere kedsuan membrs tehadeso didn't get a chance to spread there menfekena in Sunday schools" This is what abatoche call it " lame balwalebete kubete lekema" again my exact word was"
it is not only mahebere kedusan most sunday schools are also stuggled tehedso for almost 25 years. Trust me all sunday schools are struggling menafekane always, you call them theadeso or any other name. So Yes Mahebere kedusan since has more members, and may be because ot the closeness of the members to thechnology, they were able to reccord documents , and present it in organised way, to our fathers and that is ye mahebero true yetwahdo lejenet newe. But we can not conclude as the writer mentioned "theadeso is not spread in Sunday schools because of Mahebere kedusan". May be the writer didn't listen most sunday school's complain, there strong members as soon as they join university or collage or by any other chnce become member ot mahebere kidusan, most of them they start to consider" sunday school as an matured kids place, no fruite, so they loose interest automaticlly, and they start to fill they belong to the educated group of the church, which is maheber kidusan. This is the bigest weekness I used to see from this mahebere members. admitting this issue and trying to resolve maheberkedusan forced his members to be sunday school members, trust me most of them there membership is just to be able to keep there maheber kidussan membershi. And when ever they go to there sunday school they expected a better treatment because they aremahebere kedussan members.
I know mahebere kedusan has close relationships mostly to the sunday schools that are geographically closer to universties and colleges. That is because they want to use there premisis for there programs. Again I love mahebere kedusan but trust me most of there really theologycally edudated members there backround is senbet temhert bete. Sebkete is good sunday is school is not sebeket bota, they teach always the foundation basic of the church. To fight tehadeso you need to know your relagion well, it is not only to train your memeber if you hear some one says this it meeans he might be theadeso. It is good neketo metebeke, but do mahebere kedusan knows orthodox dogma as much as sundaly school students. Why don't you do some test your self. So we need to give every one crdit because of there membership.

@'Samuel zeasebot': There has never been time when heretics called themselves 'we are heretics.' They always called themselves 'Wengelaweyan', 'Eyesusaweyan, Etc to get acceptance by people who do not know and suspect their intrigue. However, thanks to our sharp forefathers they denied them to have been called by those names. They /our fathers/ called them using the right words or phrases that describe them and their/the heretics'/ deeds and teachings like 'atsirare betekirstian', 'kelebat', 'bits- hasawean', etc because they are not what they claimed to have been. This thing, the presence of heretics in our Church openly and/or covertly, is not a new phenomenon. It was there since the time of Apostles. Then too they were among Christians covertly and at times openly. The Epistles of John, James and Jude explicitly and with repeated emphasis tell us about this issue. So, what is the big deal about it and why we needed to use a completely different word and phrase to call them and confuse the laity? My brother or sister, even the English meaning of the word 'reform, is positive and cannot be used to describe something negative. What you said 'niseha' /repentance/ is called 'behewot metades'. Thus, we need 'niseha' in order to 'behewot lemetades'. Why in the world we call those heretics whose objective is to destroy the Dogma, canon and tradition of our Church with name they use it to deceive the faithful by saying that they were up to reforming the Church, not poisoning with heresy, where in fact their aim and teachings are heretic? Also, there are areas where our Church needs to undertake 'metades'/reform/ as I mentioned in my first comment. The administration of the Church which is drowned in the sea of corruption, narrow, ethnic nepotism, out-of-date financial management, sad and miserable conditions of its traditional schools, Etc all need tehadiso/reform/. That is why I also opposed this generalized saying of 'Betekirstian Atitadesim'. 'Betekirstian Titadesalech' but what or which part of betekirstian should be the question. Therefore, my brother/sister Samuel Zeasebot, you got it wrong. The word 'Tehadiso' is our word. We should not use it to call those anti- Tewahedo menafikan with it. Why do I care this much about the word is because, if we do not use the right word to describe the right action, there will be confusion. And what we are witnessing these days among the laity is this fact. That is why always in a decree or contracts there is this preamble that says, unless the word------has a different meaning, in this decree or contracts the word-------means this or that. WORDS MATTER! Hence, I stress that there is not known TEHADISO IN OUR CHURCH, BUT THERE IS COVERT HERETIC MOVEMENT IN OUR CHURCH. Smuel Zeasebot, lemetades yabikah/yabikash.

You are trying to advance here your own belief, not the teaching of our Tewahedo church!

You are fixed and hung-up with the word "tehadiso" to such an extent that your arguments reflect the same brand of views we know from other "tehadiso" advocates.

Admistrative change, and development is completely a different matter from your views about "tehadiso" which in all it's aspects is foreign to our Faith and Church!

We know the forces who are organized using this "tehadiso"-camouflage to subvert and destroy Our Tewahedo Fith and
replace it with protestantism.

There is no confusion, as you assert, on this matter among the true followers of the doctrine and tradition of our Tewahedo Church and Faith!

We know for a fact, that any and all confusion is being sown and fanned by the camouflaged protestan "warriors" who have nested in our midst are breading
chaos to "achieve" their goal of
taking "control" and protestantiziong our Tewahedo Church.

We have seen the snake and observed it for a long time. Even
under his cover of "tehadiso-ism", all his efforts are destined to be exposed and fail: The Mighty Hand of The God of Our Fathers and our own determiined struggle will defeat the snake!

You may do yourself good not to push this foreign teaching on us. There is no room for tehadiso in our church as you pretentiously try to make it sound.

Why do you push this known and condemned protestant teaching if you are a true follower of our Tewahedo Faith and traditions?

Your preoccupation with tehadiso-ism is very much unlike what all true followers of our Tewahedo Church are concerned about.

In fact, tehadiso is the greatest danger facing our Tewahedo Church
to date! It is the poison that has infected the patriarch and a few of his followers who are destroying our church from within in the name of "tehadiso".

What a sugar-coted poison is this word tehadiso for whose acceptance you are campaigning!
We have enough historical and factual evidence about the poisonous roots and destructive effects of "tehadiso-ism" all over the world against the true Christian Faith, while pretending to be "Christian"!

None of the views you advocate come from a true follower of our Tewahedo Faith and Doctrine!

No sir, we don't want to be poisoned by protestant teachings under the cover of the sugary word "tehadiso"!

May the God of Abune Tekele Haimanot Protect us from the being poisoned by the evil teachings of
"tehadiso-ism", which is protestantism!

May Mehanie Alem Kristos protect His & Our Tewahedo Church! Amen
