A NEW HINDU BIBLE

http://www.community.org.ua/dwnld/enghindubible2.doc
September 2, 2008

To The Cardinals and Bishops of the Catholic Church

There are different heretical Bible interpretations (commentaries on the text) – jehovistic, atheistic (HCT)*, gnostic ones and now a hindu one too, even with an ecclesiastical approval! Until recently a Catholic was not allowed to read the Bible without Catholic commentaries; today, unfortunately, these Catholic commentaries (interpretation) are prepared by so-called Bible scholars on the basis of *HCT (historic-critical theology). These people are practical unbelievers who do not treat the Word of God as the Word of God and deny the supernatural in the Bible. This spirit of atheism has created a vacuum and opened the door for a new spirituality, for paganism (buddhism, hinduism…).

 

And the new “Bible” with Hindu commentaries – interpretation – will infect defenceless victims with the
spirit of New Age. It is a demonic deceit and crime
.

Archbishop T. S. Pakiam, in his preface to this new “Bible”, says: “A unique feature of the new Bible is that it has many references to the spiritual message and biblical values found in the scriptures of other great Indian religions.”

Response:
This demagogy of a Catholic prelate points to his blindness and apostasy. We first have to ask what is the nature of these Indian religions. Behind them is the spirit of lie and deceit which does not lead to conversion and repentance and to the receiving of Jesus as the only Saviour and Lord. Pagan religions are packs of myths and superstitions which we can by no means harmonize with the Gospel’s truth of salvation. St. Paul calls: “What communion has light with darkness? And what accord has Christ with Belial?” (2 Cor 6:15) And this applies to this “Bible” too. A Christian in India in particular should be enlightened on the substance of the Gospel and on the unique salvation in Christ. He should know where and how these so-called great religions artfully imitate the truth but in essence spread lie and spiritual death. The bishops of India are obliged to pass on to their faithful the apostles’ teaching and not a syncretistic opiate.

 

Fr. Paul Thelekat said while interpreting treasure in heaven of Mt 6:19-21: “This concept is found a classical expression in the Bhagavad Gita’s call to disinterested action.”

Response: Treasure is mentioned in these Bible verses three times. The most precious treasure is eternal life which is in Jesus, the Son of God. Therefore it holds true that: He who has the Son of God has eternal life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.” (cf. 1Jn 5:10f) The hindu interpretation is misleading and false.

 

The essential question is in what spirit the individual reads the Holy Scripture. If he has communion with the spirit of truth and apostolic tradition, the Holy Scripture is true spiritual food for him and gives him the strength in the battle with sin and lie. The Holy Spirit is the Author of the Scripture and He reveals to him the Divine mystery. However, if someone accepted the spectacles of lie of the HCT or syncretistic commentaries, one is then blocked and unable to accept the truth. Even the devil is an exegete. He interpreted the Holy Scripture even to the Lord Jesus Himself in the wilderness. Behind this new “Bible” is the same exegete. If we read the Holy Scripture in the spirit of hinduism, it is distortion of truth.

 

 

 

The preface reads: “The commentary takes into account the rich cultural and religious heritage of this land.”

Response: Is it possible to accord this “heritage” with the Gospel and with the Spirit of Christ, or is there some radical limit? There is a limit. Christ is the only Saviour and the only way to eternal life. Hinduism has a number of false ways which through so-called reincarnation end up in false nirvana (i.e. in hell).

This has nothing in common with the essential truths of the Gospel about one God, about an immortal soul, about eternal life and eternal condemnation, about sin and about the Saviour – the Son of God. There can be no syncretism of the Gospel and paganism.

 

What is the opposition to the publication of the so-called Hindu Bible?

C. J. S. Raphel, president of the Federation of the Catholic Faithful, said: “If you read the new Bible, it feels like you’re reading a book promoting hinduism.” Further, he categorically says that the book is a mix of hinduism and Christianity, which is not acceptable to Catholics.

The commentary on Psalm five (prayer at daybreak) reads like this: “In hinduism, the dawn is personified as a deity by the name Ushas. The traditional Hindu morning prayer consists of reciting the famous Gayatri mantra (Rig Veda 3.62.10) at daybreak, facing the rising sun: Om bhur bhuvah svaha… (may we meditate on the most excellent lustre of the sun god that he may illumine our intellect).” Can this in any way be justified – quoting mantras in the very Bible commentaries and, moreover, inciting the Catholic readers to idolatry?
Raphel adds: “It has drawings of a sari-clad Mary with Joseph in a dhoti and turban, symbols of mandir (a Hindu temple), masjid (a mosque) and gurdwara (a Sikh place of worship) along with the church and quotes from the Upanishads.”

Michael Prabhu, a Catholic apologist, said:
We are against the ‘Hindu-isation’ of the Indian Catholic Church in the guise of ‘Indianisation’. We condemn some of the footnotes and commentaries of the so-called ‘scholars’. We protest the subtle manipulations and misinterpretations of the Word of God, either overtly or covertly, that we find (here). We refuse to call it a Bible and will never recommend (this mockery) for study or prayer or teaching. The new Bible contains commentary prepared by 30 of best Bible scholars in India and is an inter-faith book that offers a syncretized Christianity by giving equal status to other religious texts and deities.”

There are over 70 references to non-Christian texts in the new “Bible”.*

*source [for the above paragraph]: The Times of India (5th & 28th August 2008)

 

This “Bible” will soon be translated and recommended with an ecclesiastical approval to all Christians throughout the world.

It is to become an instrument of spiritual infiltration of the antichristian spirit of New Age. Therefore those who bear responsibility for this offence must be punished with the heaviest punishment. This concerns first of all Cardinal Ivan Dias, Prefect of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples, Bishop Thomas Dabre, Chairman of CBCI Commission for the Doctrine, and the whole Catholic Bishops’ Conference of India (CBCI) which gave an ecclesiastical approval to this “Hindu Bible”.

We likewise propose that the so-called 30 best Bible scholars be punished with a major excommunication for this offence against the faith.

Dear Reverend Fathers and friends,

I had to write to you urgently today because of this article on the priesthood by a Fr Subhash Anand.

He was one of the commentators of the New Community Bible.

See the attachment. His article is reproduced therein. I have also given my comments in green color.

In case you wish to write me your comments, they are most welcome. But I request you to first please read VERY CAREFULLY both — the article of Fr Subhash Anand as well as my comments. Please, only then write to me.

This appears to be a very serious matter, striking at the core of the Catholic Church. I have understood Fr Subhash Anand in a particular way. Take your time. Please give me your impressions and correct me if I am wrong and have misunderstood him.

I can upload the attachment on the web site only if some of you agree with my conclusions as to what he means. So, please do write back. If you would like your name not to be used, I shall withhold all identity of the writer, so kindly inform me of the same.

Thanks in advance, Michael

Dear Michael,
We apologize for responding You so late. Thank You very much for materials You have sent to us.

Unfortunately, we do not understand well english, but let our letters be translated from others.
From your website we could see that God really preserved those 7000 who did not kneel to Baal. May God give You His strength and light in the fight against occultism and syncretism.
Recently we have written a brochure under the title “The spirit of Assisi”. Now it is being translated into english. When it will be completed we will send it to You.
In Christ
Bishops of the orthodox Greek-Catholic Church

 

NOTE: I DO NOT KNOW IF THE UKRAINIAN GREEK-CATHOLIC CHURCH IS IN UNION WITH ROME OR NOT. IF THEIR LETTERS OF APPEAL TO THE POPE IN MY FOCOLARE REPORT ARE ANY INDICATION, THEY APPARENTLY ARE. THEIR INTEREST IN FOCOLARE APPEARS TO CONFIRM THAT. DESPITE MY DILIGENT SEARCHING OF INFORMATION ABOUT THIS CHURCH ON THE INTERNET, I COULD NOT FIND ANY INFORMATION THAT MIGHT CONFIRM THESE BISHOPS TO BE TRADITIONALISTS.

I DO NOT INCLUDE TRADITIONALIST INFORMATION IN MY REPORTS WITHOUT CLEARLY INDICATING THAT IT IS SO.

I ALSO CANNOT SAY ANYTHING ABOUT THE CANONICAL VALIDITY OF THE EXCOMMUNICATIONS / ANATHEMAS PRONOUNCED BY THESE BISHOPS ON THE INDIAN BISHOPS [SEE BELOW] ON THE NEW COMMUNITY BIBLE ISSUE.

EVEN IF THESE BISHOPS DO EVENTUALLY TURN OUT TO BE TRADITIONALISTS, [INFORMATION TO THIS END WILL BE MOST WELCOME AND WILL BE INCLUDED AS AN UPDATE TO THIS REPORT], ONE MUST APPRECIATE THEIR ORTHODOXY, THEIR ZEAL FOR PROTECTING THE FAITH AGAINST ERROR, AND THEIR UNCOMPROMISING STAND AGAINST HERESY, SYNCRETISM AND NEW AGE.

Prefect

H.E. Card. Ivan Dias

Your Eminence,

You are Prefect of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples.

In the years 1996-2006 You were Archbishop in Bombay in India. Your intensive support helped develop a project of so-called Hindu Bible.

This project is an offence against the Triune God, His Word and a blasphemy against the Holy Spirit. By this act You have shown that You interiorly fell away from Christ and His Gospel.

On authority of apostolic and prophetical service we publicly announce to the whole Church that in compliance with God’s law (Gal 1:8-9) You fall under the punishment of major excommunication.

We pray for You that through the intercession of the Holy Virgin You may obtain the light to know the truth and the strength to repent. We do not want You to be eternally condemned and Your office to be abused towards hundreds of thousands of souls ending up in eternal perdition along with You.

ANNOUNCEMENT OF EXCOMMUNICATION

http://www.community.org.ua/dwnld/engletTD-cbci.doc

H.E. Msgr. Thomas Dabre

Member of Pontifical Council for Inter-religious Dialogue

Chairman of CBCI Commission for Doctrine

Diocese of Vasai, India

As given in the official information published in the mass media, You have given an approval to the publication of a “Hindu Bible”.
What You have done is an offence against Christ and the Church. You acted as representative of the Catholic Church of India and in the authority of Christ You issued a statement which runs counter to the essence of the Gospel and opens the souls to the spirit of antichrist! You thus made manifest that You are spiritually blind and that You have no comprehension of the foundations of the Christian faith.

The true Christians cannot defend themselves; even if they rightly declare the “Hindu Bible” a heresy and a betrayal of Christ, the liberals and syncretistic apostates will reply to them: “You are defiant to the Church authority, to obedience – to Christ.” And these little ones of Christ they will label as rebels and sectarians.

By this glaring offence of Yours against Christ and His bleeding Body – the Church – You have excommunicated Yourself from the Church (Gal 1:8-9).

On behalf of Christ we hereby also call upon all Christians of India to separate from You and stop obeying You as an apostate.

If You are willing to repent, You must take the following steps:
1) to withdraw Your approval to the “Hindu Bible”;
2) by reason of worldwide public offence, to resign from Your office.

We pray for You, that through the intercession of the Holy Virgin You may obtain the light to know the truth and the strength to repent. We want Your salvation!

PUBLIC APOSTASY OF THE BISHOPS OF INDIA

September 3, 2008

http://www.community.org.ua/dwnld/engbpsofindia.doc

Most Reverend Bishops of India, all sincere believers are shocked by Your apostatic offence!

It is incomprehensible that You gave an approval to the project of a “Bible” which introduces the spirit of hinduism.

On behalf of the Triune God we call You to renounce the spirit of apostasy and to withdraw Your approval to this felonious project.

Unless You do so publicly by 30th September 2008 we announce already now to the whole Church that the Bishops’ Conference of India has fallen into apostasy. You are thus no longer anonymous but overt traitors of Christ and the Church. You fall under God’s punishment of excommunication from the Church (major excommunication acc. Gal 1:8-9).

AN ANATHEMA ON 228 BISHOPS OF INDIA

August 16, 2009

http://www.community.org.ua/dwnld/enganat-india.doc
[http://www.community.org.ua/letters.html]

On 3rd September 2008 our orthodox Catholic Bishops’ Synod of the UGCC appealed to all bishops of India, who are sheltered by two Bishops’ Conferences, to confess the faith and to renounce heresies.

It particularly concerned cessation of
a criminal project of the so-called Indianized Bible
and of its subsequent publication.
The footnotes in this Bible present an interpretation of the Holy Scripture not in the Catholic but in the Hindu spirit, and that is a grave crime both against the Scripture and against the Holy Spirit.

All bishops of India were conscious of this; however, notwithstanding our appeal, they did not dissociate themselves from participation in this felonious project.

As from 1st October 2008, they incur the punishment of anathema according to Gal 1:8-9 and the latae sententiae penalty of excommunication by reason of proclamation of heresies (can. 1364 §1 CIC).

As from this day, when we promulgate this anathema, i.e. 16th August 2009, they hold their offices unlawfully and administer the sacraments, except for Baptism, invalidly. We have to warn that in case they ordain any priests henceforward, this ordination will be invalid.

We publish the names of these apostate bishops or cardinals:

Supposing they die in this state of obstinacy, they will be eternally condemned. Not even the Holy Father can remove this anathema from them unless they themselves repent, that means, unless they confess the true faith and renounce heresies and adequately make reparation for the crime of the publication of the heretical Indianized Bible.

CANONICAL STATUS OF THE SO-CALLED BISHOPS OF PIDHIRCI

Vatican City, 29 March 2012 (VIS) – Given below is the text of a declaration issued today by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith concerning the canonical status of the “so-called Greek-Catholic bishops of Pidhirci”: Fr. Elias A. Dohnal O.S.B.M., Fr. Markian V. Hitiuk O.S.B.M., Fr. Metodej R. Spirik O.S.B.M., and Fr. Robert Oberhauser. The text is dated 22 February and bears the signatures of Cardinal William Joseph Levada and Archbishop Luis Francisco Ladaria Ferrer S.J., respectively prefect and secretary of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.

(1) The Holy See has followed with great concern the activities of Fr. Elias A. Dohnal O.S.B.M., Fr. Markian V. Hitiuk O.S.B.M., Fr. Metodej R. Spirik O.S.B.M., and Fr. Robert Oberhauser who, having been expelled from the Basilian Order of St. Josaphat, subsequently proclaimed themselves as bishops of the Greek-Catholic Ukrainian Church. With their disobedience, these priests continue to challenge ecclesiastical authority, causing moral and spiritual damage, not only to the Basilian Order of St. Josaphat and the Greek-Catholic Ukrainian Church, but also to this Apostolic See and the Catholic Church as a whole. All this provokes division and bewilderment among the faithful. The aforementioned priests, having established a group of “bishops” of Pidhirci, have recently sought to have that group recognised and registered by the competent State authorities as the “Ukrainian Orthodox Greek-Catholic Church”.

(2) Since the beginning of this painful episode, Church representatives of various ranks have sought to dissuade them from continuing a conduct which, among other things, could deceive the faithful, as has already happened in a number of cases.

(3) The Holy See, concerned to protect the unity and peace of Christs flock, had hoped in the repentance and subsequent return of the aforementioned priests to full communion with the Catholic Church. Unfortunately the most recent developments – such as the unsuccessful attempt to acquire State registration for the “Pidhirci” group under the name of the “Ukrainian Orthodox Greek-Catholic Church” – demonstrates their continuing disobedience.

(4) Therefore, to safeguard the common good of the Church and the “salus animarum”, and given that the so-called “bishops” of Pidhirci show no sign of repentance but continue to create confusion and disarray in the community of faithful, in particular by calumniating representatives of the Holy See and of the local Church, and asserting that the supreme authority of the Church is in possession of documentation testifying to the full validity of their episcopal ordination, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, accepting the request presented by the ecclesiastical authorities of the Greek-Catholic Ukrainian Church, and by other dicasteries of the Holy See, has decided, by this declaration, to inform the faithful, especially in the countries of origin of the so-called “bishops”, about their current canonical status.

(5) This Congregation, disassociating itself entirely from the actions of the so-called “bishops” aforementioned, and from their aforesaid declarations, formally declares that it does not recognise the validity of their episcopal ordinations, or of any and all ordinations that have derived, or will derive therefrom. Moreover, the canonical status of the four so-called “bishops” is that of excommunication, pursuant to canon 1459 para. 1 of the Code of Canons of the Eastern Churches (CCEO), in view of the fact that an appeal sentence of the ordinary tribunal of the Major Archiepiscopal Ukrainian Church, issued on 10 September 2008, recognised them as guilty of offences under canons 1462, 1447 and 1452 of the CCEO; i.e., the offences of illegitimate usurpation of office, inciting sedition and hatred towards certain hierarchs, provoking subjects to disobedience, and harming a third party’s good name by calumny.

(6) Furthermore, the use of the name “Catholic” by groups which are not recognised by the competent ecclesiastical authority is to be considered as illegitimate, pursuant to canon 19 of the CCEO.

(7) The faithful are, then, enjoined not to adhere to the aforementioned group as, to all canonical effects, it is outside ecclesiastical communion. The faithful are invited to pray for the members of the group, that they may repent and return to full communion with the Catholic Church.
