Two Churches

“There are two churches, one that is man-made with man-made laws. It is corrupt, false and misleading. It denies the will of the living God who reveals Himself to the heart of man. It makes slaves and bond-servants of those who choose to obey it.
There is another Church, the only one for me, for it is the Church of Jesus Christ, imbued with His Spirit, attentive to the Word and Will of God. That is the Church I recognize.” (Archbishop Aftimios Ofiesh in a letter to the editor of the ‘Syrian World’ on June 12, 1933)‚Äč
