Most of the information on the following pages was accessed by me through an unsolicited email dated April 5, 2006, from an unknown source. (My first exposé on the Divine Retreat Centre (DRC), Muringoor was DIVINE RETREAT CENTRE ERRORS-01 and it was released in August 2006.) For over 11 years from 2006 till date, I had no intention or occasion to contemplate making the details public. It is being done presently as part of the new series titled DIVINE RETREAT CENTRE SCANDALS AND COURT CASES, and the reasons for my being constrained to do so are explained in the (INTRODUCTION) file of September 30, 2017 (in brief, because of the non-action of the Vincentian Congregation in the serial sexual molestation and rape of young women by Fr. Joby Kachapilly VC, the Director of a Retreat Centre managed by the same congregation of Vincentian priests which runs the Divine Retreat Centre, Muringoor. The running series of the rape-related reports is titled RAPE AND SEXUAL ABUSE BY INDIAN PRIESTS-CHURCH FAILS TO PUNISH GUILTY.

The http://www.YouMeAndJesus.com site is defunct since I know not when. Not expecting to use any of the information or the site to be pulled, I did not access many of the links that appear on the following pages and the information is not retrievable today. Much of the information extracted/recorded below is incoherent and rambling, but it underlines the intrigue and worldliness of those who run/manage/operate the various ministries, especially the music and media ministry, at DRC, Muringoor.

Even the rapist priest Fr. Joby was into music ministry and the commercial production of audio albums.

I make no personal judgement on the “singing couple” Abey and Swapna. I have always had a good personal relationship with them, with Swapna by email, and with Abey Kalisseril by telephone even till very recently. During the period that I used to visit the DRC, from 1995 to 2000, and for a few years thereafter, they were the praise and worship ministry favoured by Fr. Augustine Vallooran, even while Glen and Teresa LaRive were growing as an alternative, though less glamorous, team. The news going around was that the sale of Glen LaRive’s recorded music tapes was not being allowed on the DRC premises in order to encourage the promotion of those of Abey & Swapna, and that the latter were benefiting financially whereas Glen was not.

The Kalisserils would get to perform at virtually all the overseas missions whereas the LaRives were ignored.

Glen and Teresa renained faithful and humble (unlike most DRC staff), driving from Kochi to DRC in order to serve when summoned. When Abey walked out on Swapna and their children Adrian and Amy, and the couple was no more welcome at the DRC, the LaRives took over.

The other musicians in the English section were the brilliant singer and keyboard artiste Thankachan who was dismissed from DRC probably following a complaint made by me that he was making money on the side through the sale of a medicinal cure-all powder (details in one of the earlier reports), and Erik Pinheiro (Sr.).

The late guitarist Pinheiro shared with me about the miserable politics behind the scenes and how people like him were used/misused, shabbily treated, and thrown out of DRC on a regular basis, on the whims and fancies of Fr. Augustine Vallooran. In one of his letters to me, which I will reproduce in a forthcoming report, he reveals more of the sad inside story of the DRC music ministries in his own handwriting. He assured me that he was never reimbursed even for his travel from his residence to Divine Retreat Centre to conduct Praise and Worship. He is not alone; I have heard the same story from several other staffers and volunteers.

While reproducing below whatever content of the http://www.YouMeAndJesus.com site I had accessed and stored in my archives in 2006, I have deleted a lot of extraneous information as well as images.

Despite that, some of the content below is almost incoherent. Much of it has been used by me just to show how complicated the entire off-stage behind-the-scenes scenario at DRC is. There are accusations of cheating, blackmailing, betrayal, vendetta, filing of police complaints, computer hacking, etc. bandied about.

Strangely, several of the leading players linked to DRC music ministry in the dialogues and chats one will read below are not Catholics but ex-Catholics (or “born again” PENTECOSTALS like “pastor” Rajesh Mathews of the Joshua Generation “church” and John Kodiyil – who is also now a “pastor” I understand).

The reader will also find a few reports of allegations of rape, murder, suicides, mysterious deaths, foreign exchange violations, defrauding, suing, issuing of arrest warrants, etc. at the DRC.

A substantial portion of the dialogue concerns money… and impersonation using social networking sites!

I would have probablty had a whole lot more of information had I accessed all of the links in 2006 immediately on receipt of the anonymous email of April 5, 2006.

Physical abuse and other atrocities by Abey Kalisseril!!!


PHOTO OF ABEY / SWAPNA

– Swapna Abraham talks it all

Didn’t Abey Kalisseril repay Swapna’s dowry?

 

 

Ha ha… Very interesting… Usually when we were in mission, we never saved anything. Just made enough to cover our expenses and if there was any excess, it was a common account, until last year when I realized I never had anything and we decided to halve it until every joint activity ended. The debt is on the house that I was building in Ooty. I just have to keep paying an instalment every month. The builder of that house now knowing my position, also a friend of Abey’s has cheated me by a fairly huge amount. I let God deal with him. Just hope that he will finish most of the work in a month’s time so that it will be a liveable house and I can shift to there from here. Cannot bear the rent over here and all the other expenses… The other major debt is from my dad and from a girl friend to restart business… and to relocate myself in Chennai. Since my revenues are not being generated yet, I have to ask my dad or my friend to help me for everything. The children were with me for their hiliday and it was no joke taking care of all their needs during the holiday and preparing them for school.

He has told me that he will not pay me maintenance, not repay my dowry, he wants half custody over the children, right now his father who has a big business enterprise takes care of the children’s school fees. I do not want to go for any suit as it will put the families to great shame and more than that, disgrace the Name of my God. The effect on the children will also be traumatic and so I agree to everything, except to gamble with my life all over again. Am not too old now, but if there will be a repeat of this experience ten years from now… I will be at a total loss to start all over again.

It will be rather hectic for me to make it on the 20th. I have a school mate visiting from New York. But I will try. In any case, I will keep you informed. God bless you Uncle. It has been truly interesting sharing with you. What does Aunty do and in what is Sunil doing? Do tell me a little bit about your son, so I will be prepared.

Till next time… take care.
Warm regards,

Swapna

 


SIT to probe allegations against Muringoor Divine Centre

Wednesday, March 15, 2006, 10:40 PM Kochi: The Kerala High Court on Friday directed the Government to constitute a Special Investigation Team (SIT) headed by Vinson M. Paul, Inspector General of Police who is now working as Director, Kerala Police Housing Construction Corporation, to probe into various allegations, including sexual exploitation of women against the Divine Retreat Centre at Muringoor in Thrissur district.

Justice K. Padmanabhan Nair also ordered that the SIT should inquire into the allegation of foreign exchange violations by the centre and unnatural deaths that took place in and around the centre during the past two years. He ordered that the team be constituted within two weeks.

The direction came on an anonymous letter complaining about criminal and anti-social activities taking place at the centre. After initiating suo motu proceedings on the basis of the letter, the court had received a complaint from a woman detained at the District Jail, Kozhikode, saying that a priest at the Divine Centre raped her. She was detained in the jail in connection with a theft in the centre. According to her, she had filed a complaint before the District and Sessions Judge, Kozhikode, regarding the rape. She said that the police were not investigating the case. She alleged that in the past two years, a number of dead bodies were found on the National Highway and the railway track near the centre. According to her, these deaths were not deaths due to accidents.

She, in her complaint, said that the bodies were buried in the public ground. The keeper of the burial ground had once objected to bringing dead bodies having injuries. He was found dead in mysterious circumstances within two months. Women coming to the centre were being sexually exploited by the priest at the centre, she alleged.

The court said that the investigation into the complaint of the woman was in cold storage. The attempt of the investigation officers was to exonerate the accused and make the complainant as accused.

The court ordered appointment of a senior officer in view of the allegations that senior IAS and IPS officers were associating with the functioning of the centre. The court also made it clear that it was open to the SIT to resort to scientific methods such as polygraph test, brain mapping and DNA finger printing. The preliminary report should be filed within one month.

– This news came in the Hindu newspaper

 

Is Fr.Augustine Vallooran telling the truth about Divine webmaster Ruben Gerad Mathew? Why did he want our website address and money?

“I personally refute all the false accusations and defamatory remarks you mentioned in your email of 22 February, 2005 sent to the Catholic Spirituality Centre against the directors and volunteers of the Divine Retreat Centre…

Mr Reuben Gerard Mathew has never been a web master of Divine and has never done a website for Divine, although he volunteered to provide such a service in the past. Divine Retreat Centre is not responsible for any of his personal dealing with you.

After my conversation with Abey & Swapna … as Abey & Swapna have an FBI report supporting their claim…” – Fr.Augustine Vallooran, director of Divine Retreat Centre

 

How did Divine webmaster Ruben Gerad Mathew hack our Internet accounts, and why?

Read about the scare tactics of Divine Worship leaders Abey Kalisseril & Swapna Abraham

Read about the murder threat against us. Did Fr.Augustine Vallooran sue us?

Who is this “avenger” and Abey’s Kalisseril’s body guard who threatened to kill us? Why there is a police complaint against Manu Mathew who wants 8 Lakhs rupees from us?

Investigation in wrong direction. (0) 

Thursday, January 12, 2006, 06:56 PM – Divine News

KOZHIKODE: The investigation into the case related to the allegation by
a woman that she was raped by a priest attached to a divine retreat centre

in Thrissur district seems to be moving in the wrong direction. The initial response from the police shows that the probe is loaded against the woman. The police are more keen on gathering the details of the past history of the woman than finding the answer to the vital question as to whether the woman was raped by the priest. While the police maintain that ninety percent of her statement is found to be false, the reluctance on their part in going for a DNA test to establish the fatherhood of the child, given birth by the woman in the jail here, is raising suspicions.
The incident came to light after the woman, now remanded in the jail in connection with a theft case, submitted a petition to the District Judge. After receiving the petition, the judge directed the Judicial First Class Magistrate, Koyilandi, to conduct an inquiry. After the inquiry, the magistrate sent the report to the Judicial First Class Magistrate, Chalakkudy, as the case comes under the jurisdiction of the latter. The Chalakkudy Magistrate then asked the police to investigate the case under Section 356 (3) of the CrPC. The magistrate had also sent a mobile phone used by the woman to Chalakkudy, which was also handed over to the police. The police are going ahead with the presumption that what the woman said in the complaint may not be true. Their argument is that the woman has a shady past.
Further, they say that there is no priest by the name mentioned in her complaint. Police also say that there is no record in the retreat centre to prove that the woman was staying at the centre as claimed by her. They say a clear picture may emerge only after arresting the person who is a co-accused in the theft case. But legal circles here say that the police could go for a DNA test, which would be a vital evidence in the case. But the police are yet to think of the possibility. The police have not yet gathered the details from the mobile phone, which will also give lead in the investigation.
Examination of the printouts of the call register of the phone can establish whether there was any communication between the priest and the woman. The woman is still lodged in the jail as she refuses to come out on bail though is eligible for the same.It is learnt that she is reluctant to come out as she has apprehensions about her safety. The State Women’s Commission, which also recorded her statement, also has expressed concern over her security.

Dear Mr. ,
The situation here is bit difficult to explain. From what I read I am really really confused. I have two versions of the same story. I will try to answer all your questions…
1. When did I register the website for your friends Abey & Swapna on their request (ref: “which your husband registered for him”)?
I believe that you helped Abey and Swapna by creating a site for them, which they have published in all their prayer retreats.
2. How do you know that I am making money out of this website? Do you mean I can’t publish my book also?
The site in the begining was used for promoting Abey and Swapna, but now Bravanet which pays for ads, banners posted on your site on pay per click and many other ways… but that is not the problem, you stopped everything on the website helping Abey and Swapna. I have created so many websites for Jesus, and Yes I have not even put in my name anywhere. “Because what the right hand gives, the left should not know.” So I don’t support your viewpoint.
3. How do you know that I am on H1 visa? What is my personal document with you?
I was just pointing out that if there arises any problems here that the embassy should be notified, such as a case in court, etc. it may directly affect your H1 visa, and you may have to return. I am a software engineer so I know what it takes to get a job, and to get a H1.
4. How do you substantiate your statement that I am against the well known couple?
When you stopped helping them, it also means that the audiance that they had are comming to you, maybe with their personal problems, for a comforting word, maybe just to see them once more. But now that you decided to stop helping does also mean that people who were notified in the earlier stage of this point of contact have no way of reaching them.
5. “So defiantly people who hear this matter will only support them.” Do you mean people will attack or kill us on your friends Abey and Swapna’s request?
Dear
, none of us exhibit any violent behavior, support is to mean “SYMPATHISE”. And see you as the black sheep. All you did is irrelavent only what you are doing this moment matters… Infact when you did not reply “Avenger” wanted to know more about you, and teach you a lesson, and did hack into your netzero account and got even upto your credit card number and password, locked out your account, retrieved your postal address, so if I wanted to harm you in this last week can you begin to imagine what I could have done to you? I held my peace for I wanted to get to the bottom of all of this, and I belived your wife and she told me you were in finantial problems, do you know how many non refundable schemes are open on the internet for me to have used your credit card and really harmed you?

6. In your email you said that “Now the only point of contact he mentioned is the website address, which your husband registered for him.” Dont your friends have a different point of contact like their website like abeyswapna.org or email address or something like that as printed on their albums ‘Storm The Heavenlies’ and ‘The Presence’?
They don’t have a website yet, but I will be creating one for them very soon, and it may be online within next two weeks, for I work for all Divine’s Websites.
7. You said that “Abey can very well use Divine’s hold on the Embassy to get you all back here which evidently can result in loss of your husbands job.” Is “Divine”, the Divine Retreat Center or Potta which stand for evangelizing the world with the gospel of Jesus? I do not know Abey’s hold. If I want to know something let me know. So Divine and Abey will get a new job for me after I lose the job through them or will they pay any alimony for my family rest of my life?
You see Divine members are not computer literate, at least the majority of them, so most of this goes over their head, the only thing everyone knows now is that Abey and Swapna had a website, and that now you have decided to market yourself instead of Abey and Swapna who worked so hard to get all the people to contact them through this website. Can you deny that you are not getting mails for Abey and Swapna even now?


8. You said that “It is true that if I had not intervened they would have used their influence to get him back to India to resolve the matter, and I said not to do that, but I will try to talk to him.” So what’s the matter?
I informed them all that I will try to get the website back. Which means to compesate in full whatever the expenses occured till date to you, and even told Abey and Swapna not to call you and that we will resolve the matter. I will buy the site from you.
9. You mentioned in the last part of the email that “I will also make sure that you will not receive any more calls or any more action from Divine, or Abey or anyone else.” Your email was dated 5/21/02. But I received the next threatening email from Abey & Swapna on 5/22/02 before even I replying to you or your friend. Abey and Swapna mentioned in that email that I asked for Glen’s email address and I am trying to destroy Glen. Do you think is there any wrong in asking Glen’s email and his website address which will destroy Glen?
Well, the fact is that this is a messy problem, and they don’t want to get more members of Divine involved in this, but solve the matter discreatly.

10. The following is an exerpt of Abey’s email came to me on April 5 & 6, 2002.
“We are also stopping all production of Anoint Me in India.Your money that you gave for Anoint me will be given to your parents in instalments as soon as we reach India.” April 6, 2002 from Abey & Swapna “You can take us away from your site and we will remove it from our cassette and CD covers.” April 5 from Abey & Swapna

Please remember you had introduced your book and bravanet popups for them to react in this manner. And I do belive that if you do the same to anyone else they may react in the same way. What if I decided that in the Mercedes Benz site that I host if I were to sell my books and unnecessary popups, then will the company keep quite? Especially if they have advertised all around the world? They may shoot me dead.
11. Your friend Abey wants to put their content as per their request on Dec. 2000 then again in Sep.2001. As per his request on April 5, he wants to remove it. Now he wants the FTP information. I am really confused now. I though that he already removed it from their cassette and CD covers.
What cassetts, cards, cds have been sold cannot be undone, so you have all the mails of Abey and Swapna comming to your website address, and that volume of traffic. Hey if you can clear your concieance in front of God then I have nothing more to say.
12. Ruben, you are right. This is not what we wanted to show the world and not really what God want from us. I am happy that you are attending all these youth meetings. Young people need hope. I pray that God will help you greatly in fulfilling his plans in your life. Are you married? Any Kids?
I am not married, and devout Christian, and try to be useful to God with every abilty that is given to me. For I started out in computers over 12 years ago, and today I am at my very best which I use to serve God.
12. “Jesus replied, “‘Do not murder, do not commit adultery, do not steal, do not give false testimony, honor your father and mother,’ and ‘love your neighbor as yourself.” Mathew 19:19 NIV
The word is not in my memory but in me, and everything I do. Thank you, I live for this stuff :-).
I want you to sell me this jesusandyou.com site. This will remeady the current situation completly. Please do hear me, for I speak knowing all developments here and your position there. You are my assignment that Jesus gave me now, and I will try to bring the best out of it. I will make sure that you will never be troubled again in this matter by anyone…
P.S. Dont maintain your records online ever again. Nothing is impenetrable. Sorry for the intrusion… I had no choice when you did not reply…

What I would love to see in your next mail is the price for the website, and you need to give it only after you recieve the money.
Love in Jesus,
Ruben.

Divine Retreat centre is in the dark (0) 

Monday, January 16, 2006, 08:38 PM – The Truth

Dear ,
I read all the e-mails you sent. I was very sad to read the contents. Whatever is happening has nothing to do with Divine. This is a personal matter between Ruben, Abey Swapna and you. Ruben is not a part of the Divine staff and is not at the divine but in his house in Trivandrum. Fr. Augustine had enquired with me after you spoke to him about this situvation. Abey and Swapna are on their own on most of their ventures abroad and so Divine Retreat centre is in the dark about this problem or regarding the money they collected etc.
We from here can only pray for all of you to solve this together instead of getting at each other since we are all god’s children. “Blessed are the peace makers for they will be called the children of God “(Mat. 5/9). I think all of you should forgive each other and get along with your ministries. I don’t think Fr. Mathew will interfere in this matter, but I am sure that he will pray for this to be solved.
Praying for you and the others

Who is Fr.Augustine’s superior? (0) 

Tuesday, January 17, 2006, 12:55 PM – Fr.Augustine Vallooran

Divine Retreat Centre is formed by the Vincentian Congregation under the direct supervision of the Bishops, and all retreats, conventions and/or outreach ministries are organized with proper interaction carried out only on official invitations received by the Bishops or parish priests of any state, province, country or nation. There is complete transparency in all financial dealings and all accounts are administered and audited by the Vincentian Order. All administration and dealings are handled only by the Board members under the direct supervision of the directors and Bishops. – Fr.Augustine Vallooran

Well, Fr.Augustine has a river of people surrounding him – he forgot to say Divine Retreat Centre is a non-profit organization or not. What I don’t get is, who’s his superior or at least the bishop who has some authority over him – does anyone know? Even the organizers of Retreat programs give conflicting answers to this. Just contact us if you have the information.

I spoke with Achan before he left for India in detail about this. Using Divine’s name for a wrong purpose is wrong – He agrees, and anyone else will agree. But, Divine will not “take action” against wrong doers. They always forget and forgive. They understand the issue and you have made your point through all of them. I feel, it is wiser to leave it at that as far as your pursuing this with Divine. Fr. Vallooran and Panackal & Fr. Mathew are the supreme administrative authority of Divine. You have informed all of them. That is how I see.

As I mentined to you in our conversation, I consider this as a pure personal matter. Everyone I talked is taking the same stand. As I see, you have options either to let it go with a Christian spirit or to take it up with them directly. In my opinion, all other efforts are waste of time.

I have absolutely NOTHING to do with you, your progrmmes or cancellations. Many are under the impression that someone is playing a double role in this.
As per Achans request retreats are arranged at 3 places and it will take place if Achan is arriving at Chicago on 21st.
I have NOT received any schedule or plan for Abbey and Swapna, though I requestsed you several times to help them to do both. All what you have written in the email may give a good impression on you for readers; But I am getting an opposite picture. We could have done this very nicely if you co operated a bit more.
There is no harm in doing any programs for Abey and Swapna anywhere after March 4. In fact, I would have even helped you out if you wanted. By this email, it appears to me that you do not want to take that responsibility to help them out and want to pass the blame on others.
Abey, if you all are available in Chicago on 21st for retreat, please let me know and we will take it from there. If that is not possible, please let me know that too. Thanks.

If you have any plans for Abbey & Swapna in these places after 4th from Portland, I can arrange their flights as return flights on the dates that you need. As per the plan, they will be flying to Chicago – Sanjose-portland all via Salt Lake City. If you want any of them to be a return flight after 4th, I can do it with a little extra if that would be beneficial for me. If they do not have anything, I can book them to
Houston and Dallas, along with Father. It has just come up. Achan is ready either way. Houston is in Malayalam. If you have not anything for them, I will also include them. If you have something in Portland after 4th, for them, I will book father alone from there to Houston. It seems that there are a few nuns who may sing Malayalam songs up there if Abey and Swapana are not available. Achan is ok either way.
My intention is only to make it convenient to you all, if that would help you out so that they need not buy additional seperate tickets to these places – only if that would be useful for them. Let me know by tomorrow. It won’t cost me much as difference.

What CDs are we talking about? We are not selling any CDs at these retreat locations unless it is instructed by Divine Achans. But if the Cds are for retreat purpose, I will arrange to ship it to any place. I have no problem in doing it.
What I meant is this. If you want to hold any concerts at these locations after the retreats, I will get a return flight for them for each location. That way, even after the priest goes, they can fly back to these places and hold their concerts and sell their CDs or whatever.

The Making of Coming Soon (0)  Thursday, January 19, 2006, 01:33 PM – John Kodiyil

I did not start out with the intention of recording an album, but a series of events led to the album being what it is now.
It started around July of 2000, on the way back to Cochin from Mangalore after a retreat, the Joshua Generation stopped by at Trichur for another retreat. It was there at Jerry’s house that I started reading the book “Husbands and Fathers” by Derek Prince. I had lost my earthly father 15 years ago and this book came a long way towards making me understand the heart of Abba father and towards making me understand the God ordained role of a father. It had also set me free in several areas.
A couple of months later back in Cochin, I was talking to Santosh, my neighbor, who is also a dear friend, when the Lord told me to buy him this book. The shop from which Jerry had bought his copy was only a five minute drive from my house.
It was a new shop and so I was browsing around after picking out the book when my eyes fell upon Abey and Swapna’s CD; Anoint Me. I normally do not listen to that type of music & I moved on. However, I felt an urge to buy that CD and somehow I kept coming back to it. I bought the album with the intention of encouraging their ministry and sowing into it.

A week went by before I decided to check out the website URL given at the back of the CD. While going through the site, once again the Lord told me to encourage them. So I wrote a few words to Abey and Swapna, and in a couple of days, I got a reply from the producer of the album. After going through Timbrels’ web site, he asked me to do a review for the album. He also told me that if I were to make an album, he’d sell it for me in the US. It was on this offer that I finally asked my pastor Rajesh permission to make an album.
Though I had a written couple of songs after being born again, I never though of myself as a musician, and certainly had no immediate plans to record and release an album.
So when my pastor agreed, I was faced with the fact that I had only two songs for the album I just got permission to record. I thought my situation was rather strange, but left it to the Lord to do the rest.
And that He did. One by one the songs came to me, and I felt that the Lord did not want me to compromise on the style or format. The nature or styles of the songs are what they are because it was how they were given to me. I used no one else because I did not feel the need to.
This is how the album came to be. I did not feel the freedom in my spirit to give it for a US release, and so I released it through Timbrels in India.
Now the Lord has blessed me with a great band, and we will be releasing many albums in the future.

I have no need to prove anything to you (but simply believe me) (0)

From: SWAPNA ABRAHAM <swapsnjesus@yahoo.co.in>
To: Uncle
Date: Dec 3, 2005 8:00 PM
Uncle,
For the last time I am telling you, you can take it from me that all your deductions are right (and I am telling you this, not because it is true, but because that’s what you want to believe and that’s what you believe).
I did send the complaint to the Head of Kerala Police, to the Indian High Commission in the US, to the FBI, to the police in the place where he stays. Based on my complaint, he was questioned. Well, based on his complaint, Abey’s parents were also questioned by the local police. There has to be a way of addressing situations across continents. Nobody thought I was sick or silly. They followed up the matter, but nothing could be done about it as I am not a citizen of the US as you rightly put it. You have not seen the mails that I have received from him, the messages (even on answering machines) and mails he has spread about us all over the world, especially to our different organisers that we are scam and porn artistes, the derogatory remarks he has made about the priests in Divine, even getting an arrest warrant against Fr.Augustine Vallooran. The facts and figures he has so methodically put down are not all true. I have a responsibilty to tell you this. You can still hold on to your beliefs if you please. I have no need to prove anything to you, and don’t intend to waste any of your or my time on this.

I know it is common thing in North America to sue on the drop of a hat, and am actually quite amused that you want to sue me now. In just one week, how can you talk to me as you do? It is really a blessing in disguise that the visa did not come through. People who are not like minded must never work together. You are a legalist with an eye for detail (which is exceptional), but you miss the intent of a person’s actions and misinterpret them.
The information you deemed worse than pornographic was not put on that site by me. And for your information, I do not encourage pornography. I will comment no further on this.
But I do not appreciate what you said about my father. Am wondering where you heard my testimony. True, I had a lonely childhood, in boarding. That was the best thing my parents thought they did for me at that time. As a child, as an adolescent, I could never understand it. But I did, when I had my own kids (and that’s not because I finally put my kids also in boarding). Parents do a lot of things for their children which they think are for their good, but the children may not understand it. My father got me married to the person I chose, because I asked him for that, it was not his choice. About
, my father has better work than to form opinions about people like that. Whatever transpires in a parent-child relationship, ask a child what they think of their parent, and that should speak for itself. I am sure that your children also would speak very highly of you.
Just remembered, although I did not give you Abey’s email address, you have his phone number. Anyone has access to that information because it is printed on all of the previous albums’ labels. You may want to call him and perhaps find out that I am the bad and manipulative person who was the reason for the breakdown of our marriage… I realised that I do have
‘s email address from a mail that he had sent me some months ago. But you can get access to him through his site. I do not want to be the one to give you his email address either.
Wasn’t I the one who first mentioned to you that there was an issue with a guy in the States? This I told you ONLY BECAUSE you said that you were considering organising my programmes in Canada. I don’t tell people about this on my own accord. The reason I told you was because I felt you should be aware of it, being the main organiser of outreaches on the same continent. If I kept quiet about it and you later on found out, I don’t think you would have appreciated it. How I wish you had retaliated to me like this even then, we would not have proceeded any further, and spared you and me all this… At that time, I was bewildered enough when you told me you were angry. You did not say anything further when I told you that I would explain everthing with the documents that were in my possession, when we would meet during your visit to Ooty. Even after that, I was quite perplexed when you mailed me on the email id of my organiser in Africa. I remember asking you if I was missing something.
I do not know what more to say to you. I cannot stop you from filing a suit against me or whatever. Let me just tell you one last thing, even till the last mail, I was hoping that you would seek to resolve the matter, considering your age and your maturity.
I did not want things to reach this state between you (someone I was directing to attend a retreat with and for your son’s problem and who later turned out to be a wellwisher’ and prospective organiser) and me (someone who has been through a rough bit on the domestic front and was setting out again trying to get back to mission – the joy of life). But I give up at this point. What I feel is a sense of loss, having lost a good wellwisher who has turned to be quite the opposite, and has misunderstood me far too much, only God can convince you, I wont try any further.
My regards to your family. Continued prayers assured. Whether you take it or leave it, there is One who accepts it. Thank God at least He understands me. Incidents like this are lessons for me (it makes me stronger and trust all the more in only God’s promises), and I had better hold on to my previous resolution of not working any more with North American Malayalees. No hard feelings, but perhaps the worst and only stabs in ministry have been from that source. I really wished that I could do it this time (I wanted to believe that there were atleast a few who would be able to perceive better than what appeared to be true), but I don’t want to try anymore.
I do not intend to communicate with you anymore. Kindly Uncle, WITHOUT ANYMORE OF YOUR INSIGHTS, let me know what you have spent on my behalf, I hope to meet you in Divine and settle that. You need to check out more if Swapna leaves any debt outstanding… Your understanding of me has been so incorrect actually. That doesn’t matter anymore. The number you can contact me on when you reach Kerala is 98475 14442. It is the number of a colleague at Divine, by the name of Sangeeta. She will take the information for me. You and I have not spoken to each other so far, anyways. At Divine, perhaps you can even ask Glen and Teresa about my so called hostility towards them. I understand that a team of some sort had been formed for the outreaches in Vancouver. As you think best fit, you can tell them that you realised unfortunately quite late that I am this ‘bad and manipul-ative person’ and I will also mail the team an apology letter. I never wanted it to be this way, but it needs to be stopped at least now. And I will not mail you anymore either.That’s all. God bless.Regards,
Swapna

Dear Uncle,
Very briefly,
befriended Abey and asked us to do an album for him called “Anoint Me”. He compiled lyrics from the Psalms, I gave the music and we did it. We did not charge anything for our own fees and did it out of friendship. But he paid the rest of the artiste and production cost. All done on friendship basis, there was no contract. In fact it was all between Abey and him, just that I did all the work. But when things got sour, Abey got me to file the complaint!!! He and his dad would never get his name on any record to safeguard himself.
We were publicising the album in all the countries that we went, travelling at our own cost. He used to tell us that since the album was being sold in Divine because we were singing there, we could keep the proceeds of the same. Also in the other countries where we went on mission. To the extent that we considered the album as our own. He organised the ‘Anoint Me’ tour of the US, we spent to travel, and he was realising the sales proceeds of the album during that tour, even the sales on his website which he asked us to make as our official website. As we were not hi tech and did not have the time then, we told everyone to write to us on that site and he was the person getting back to people on behalf of us. During the US tour, we also did a few programmes with Fr.Vallooran for Divine.
After the tour was over, he came with a big statement of acount. We had already paid him for the expenses on our part before we left, received no receipt for the same, as it was done in good faith. Then he started playing up telling people we did not pay him for his expenses. It got real bad. All his overheads, he passed on to us. Even his site administerial costs. He has a website ministry of his own. I will sms you the name of his site if you give me your mobile number. I don’t want him to access this mail by any chance.
Anyway, to get rid of his torment, we agreed to pay something more, that only made the trouble worse and he went about maligning our name already. It went into a battle of words, hate mails from his side and I had to lodge a complaint about him to the police in … where he lives and works, even to the FBI. I was advised to institute a civil case. Who has the time or even the money for that? We even till today bear the attacks from this Christian brother.

Am going Uncle. Today is my last day here and I have loads of chores to finish.
Just for your info, I do not have a Canadian visa, but I do have a US visa valid till 2012. Ha ha. God bless you all. Warm regards, Swapna

Dear Mr. :
I personally refute all the false accusations and defamatory remarks you mentioned in your email of 22 February, 2005 sent to the Catholic Spirituality Centre against the directors and volunteers of the Divine Retreat Centre as follows:
a) The story you created alleging that I approved and supported a plan to raise a sum of $25,000 for Abey & Swapna’s child is totally untrue and unfounded.
b) The Divine Retreat Centre has never demanded money from the public or individuals to support its work in any of their outreach programmes as you claim, including that in Chicago in 2002. The organizers of such programmes are willing to testify to this effect.
c) Mr Reuben Gerard Mathew has never been a web master of Divine and has never done a website for Divine, although he volunteered to provide such a service in the past. Divine Retreat Centre is not responsible for any of his personal dealing with you.
d) Mr Glen La Rive has never been an administrator or an advisor to the Board at Divine Retreat Centre. He is one of the volunteer musicians serving in the Centre.
e) You alleged that Divine Retreat Centre is a “playground for crimes and scams”. On the contrary, the Centre is very much involved with the work of evanglization and conversion of sinners back to God. We can show you countless written testimonies to this effect.
After my conversation with Abey & Swapna regarding your allegations against them, I was informed by them that all your allegations were false and it was actually you who was owing them money. They alleged that you are circulating these dafamatory emails to cover your debt to them as Abey & Swapna have an FBI report supporting their claim against you.

Based on your accusations, I would like you to furnish supporting evidence of your allegations, failing which and should you continue to with your reckless line of action, Divine Retreat Centre may be forced to take up legal action against you for your false allegations and defamatory remarks.
For your information I wish to point out to you and all concerned regarding the functioning of the Divine Retreat Centre and its spiritual missions:
Divine Retreat Centre is formed by the Vincentian Congregation under the direct supervision of the Bishops, and all retreats, conventions and/or outreach ministries are organized with proper interaction carried out only on official invitations received by the Bishops or parish priests of any state, province, country or nation. There is complete transparency in all financial dealings and all accounts are administered and audited by the Vincentian Order. All administration and dealings are handled only by the Board members under the direct supervision of the directors and Bishops.
We wish to bring to your notice that from time to time various individuals offer their voluntary services and at present Divine Retreat Centre has more than 2500 volunteers, some residing and some frequently or infrequently visiting to serve. From time to time, such individuals may venture out to minister on their own and in such cases do not represent Divine Retreat Centre unless instructed or sent by the Directors through proper channels.
Divine Retreat Centre will be held responsible for the action of any individuals only if they are sent by Divine through the proper channels. If you wish to avoid such problems in future please take the proper steps to go through the right channels.
In your case, when you had personally taken interest to support Abey and Swapna with your services, you had not gone through the right channels of consulting or informing the directors. It was your own desire to support them personally.
It is unchristian to pass judgment based on individual information you received through your own contacts.
If you need any further clarification regarding our functioning, please do visit us and see for yourself.
We understand you are hurt by your personal dealings with Abey and Swapna. We are concerned and are praying for you to solve it with them personally at the earliest.
Thanking you in Jesus,
Fr Augustine Vallooran VC

If they ask about my marital status, you can just mention that I have been put in a position such as this. That would be true and fair.
I am the proprietrix of Admiral Musics, a new firm that I started to bring our gospel albums and music propagating the importance of human life.
Yep, last year he once got one of his… to hack this email account to find out what I was telling people… I got the password changed and there has been no problem since then. Moreover, that person has left him now. No worries.
I am going to apply for my German visa today. Just hope and pray that all goes well.
There is a Philippino group in Chicago that has asked me to go on mission to Chicago in February. Which part of the US are you staying in? Do you think it would be worth the while if I came there also and had a prayer meeting or small musical concert for the youth or something? I may also go to New York.
Uncle, there is a person in the States, whose name is
/ / , for whom we did an album and promoted it worldover. This person organised a series of programmes for us in the States in 2002, and he asked us for the money he spent on organising the same. We paid him, but after that, he asked for more and it became a very unpleasant situation. He started telling people we were swindlers, porn artistes… he started sending me hate mails, porn mails and it became unbearable. The worst part is that he still holds a good face in the Christian community there and in India. Just thought I would also let you know this in case you get to hear about it. He tried to get the Fathers at Divine also involved in it and it became such a sad story.
I spoke to Fr.Vallooran yesterday and told him all the updates about what has been happening in my life. He just feels so sad that I have to struggle so much.
That’s all for now uncle. Let me get going. Bye and God bless. How is Sunil now? Warm regards,
Swapna

Tuesday, February 28, 2006, 10:34 AM – Statements

My family lives in Kerala, India. We raised my son with good education, and he became successful because of his hard work, and God’s help. We are now worried about our lives as well as our son’s family abroad because of an ongoing blackmailing and murder threats from a team of people from Kerala.
While my son was growing up, in 1992, he came across a couple named Abey & Swapna from Divine Retreat Centre. Without our knowledge, this couple claiming to be evangelists, borrowed money from my son between 1992 and 2002, agreed to reimburse us, but they did not return the money in full.
Time passed, and we forgot about their return of the money. In 2001 December, this couple Abey & Swapna, and their parents called us for help to take their daughter to America for an eye surgery. Reluctantly, my son agreed to help them after hearing from them that their daughter is losing her sight. The couple visited America, stayed with my son and my daughter in law, borrowed money from my son upto 5 lakhs, in that amount paid back 50% only, and secretly stole my son’s personal information when he was away from home.
As soon as this couple got back to India in April 2002, they paid money to a notorious cyber hacker Ruben Gerad Mathew in Trivandrum who was the webmaster of Divine Retreat Centre at that time, to hack my son’s Internet account and to get the bank information to scam them. He demanded my son to surrender his popular business website to Divine Retreat Centre, with an intention to promote Abey & Swapna in America. He threatened my son that the directors of Divine Retreat Centre would bring him back to India through the power they have worldwide.

We reported the blackmailing to the DGP Horsmis Tharakan of Kerala in 2002 May, but they could not find and interrogate Ruben Gerad Mathew until January 2003 because of the lack of information they had of Ruben Gerad Mathew. When my son did not meet his demands for money, he started publishing defamatory remarks on websites hosted by Eleazar Networks, a web hosting company based in Cochin and run under the guidance of Pastor Rajesh Mathew, Joshua Generation Ministries who is a close friend of Abey & Swapna. On August 5, 2002 we personally visited Kiran Thomman, the CEO of Eleazar Networks, to ask him to remove the contents of the defamatory statements from the website. Eleazar Networks nor Kiran Thomman did not take any action. The people visited the website called us ‘Fraud’ after reading the statements from the website. In addition, Ruben Gerad Mathew opened a free geocities website and anonymously published pornographic contents about our son and daughter-in-law.
In 2003, this couple befriended John Kodiyil who contacted my son for financial help describing his inability to have a job other than making music, later told my son to produce a music album. He borrowed lakhs of rupees from my son as studio charge and to pay the musicians, this time with our knowledge. After a while he started blackmailing, to give him more money, otherwise he will not complete the project. Little we know that Abey & Swapna and Pastor Rajesh Mathew were the people behind the blackmailing, at the end they forced John Kodiyil to stop the project. Though we experienced financial loss, we allowed not further pursuing this matter with the court because of the mediation of his mother and considering his wife’s apology.
Now, a person with name Manu Mathew claiming to be John Kodiyil’s band member is blackmailing us for 8 Lakhs rupees. He called our Kerala home, and threatened us continually – all these without providing his address. We lodged a police complaint at Chenganoor Police Station on December 28, 2005 against Manu Mathew after we noticed that he and his team want to attack us physically. The police could not catch him because he did not provide his address – we had only his telephone number. Through a representative he informed the DSP on January 1, 2006 that he would not call us or send us any email to harass us or threaten us, after he was asked to surrender. He did not surrender, and evaded the police.
After 2 weeks, on January 22, Manu Mathew started sending anonymous emails by using the name Roy, a pattern Ruben Gerad Mathew started in 2002. Today on January 26, he sent the same email again.
Emotionally tired by the continuous blackmailing by this team of people from Cochin, we have filed a criminal case at the same police station today (1-26-2006), and have asked the Kerala Police to investigate and bring the culprits to justice.
This website will detail the progress of this case.
Mr. & Mrs. P.I. Chacko

Why this website? 

Saturday, January 28, 2006, 05:56 PM

1. Why do you have to do this?

It is unchristian to pass judgment based on individual information you received through your own contacts. – Fr.Augustine Vallooran

Can anyone trust the information received from Fr.Augustine Vallooran, and make judgement to become a Christian? We doubt. We don’t want Fr.Augustine Vallooran to be unchristian as well.

2. What’s the spiritual motivation behind this website?
“Let no one be found among you who sacrifices his son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead.” Deuteronomy 18:10-11

3. Why don’t you guys just talk, resolve this problem in closed doors instead of accusing the directors of Divine Retreat Centre on a public website?

You might have already read in MV Thomas (Divine Retreat Centre representative in the US) email. We informed Fr.Mathew Naikomparambil, Fr.George Panackel as well as Fr.Augustine Valloran that we would like to talk, but none of them wanted to talk. Instead of talking to us, this team is spreading the lies to the public. We believe that a discussion is not going to help, so we decided to tell our story, the true story.

4. Why are you talking bad about Divine Retreat Centre?

How can anyone get a good impression about Divine Retreat Centre when their own webmaster threaten and blackmail individuals, and later the directors supporting their actions?
5. Do the emails published on this site have authenticity?

Yes, the emails are authentic. The victim’s names are deleted for further protecting them.

6. Why don’t you allow the police to handle this case?

We reported this problem to the police multiple times, but that has not helped the situation.
7. Is it a conspiracy?

Yes, it is. The controlling figures of this conspiracy Abey & Swapna, duped many innocents, for money, and to retain their monopoly in Christian music, and they are completely supported by Fr.Augustine Valloran.
8. Are you forced to tell your story?

Yes, we are. Don’t you think it is better to tell our experiences, rather than hiding it, so that at least someone else won’t become a victim?
9. Who is running this website?

The victims are running this website.
10. Is it legal?

If it is legal for a Catholic priest & his cronies to make abhorrent remarks about us, publish it on their website, and other free websites, how is it illegal when we say we are not as they portrait. We believe that the truth need to be told, and not a single person should be manipulated by Fr.Augustine Vallooran and his cronies.
11. Are you bashing the Catholics?

Not at all. We are not against Catholics. Many Catholics have disagreements on what Divine Retreat Centre practicing. So, the Divine Retreat Centre, its directors nor its other worship leaders represent the whole Catholic Community. We would like to tell you they repressed us because we are not Catholics.
12. The site says “daily blog” but I don’t see much?

You will see our responses to the allegations in BLUE color. They are blogs. We know you are anxious to read how we are defending the allegations, but be patient, and visit the site regularly – You will read more blog in the days to come.

 

Notorious Computer Internet hacker Ruben Gerad Mathew (0) 

Sunday, January 29, 2006, 09:43 AM – Ruben Gerad Mathew, Avenger Inc.

This 21 year old guy named Ruben Gerad Mathew from Trivandrum is a notorious computer hacker. He hacked our internet account regularly. He hacked our Internet account on May 20, 2002, and he updated our account details – he replaced our names with his alias name AVENGER. In 2005 May, he hacked the account again, and replaced with the original details. In August 2005, he lost his job from the US Technology resources after they found out his irrational, criminal activities within their premise itself. He was the webmaster of Divine Retreat Centre, Abey & Swapna website from 2001 July to 2005.

Yep, last year he once got one of his… to hack this email account to find out what I was telling people… I got the password changed and there has been no problem since then. Moreover, that person has left him now. No worries. – Swapna Abrahama, 10/16/2005

We assume the person who hacked Swapna Abraham’s email account was also Ruben Gerad Mathew, though she did not reveal his name – probably afraid of the evil acts of the Avenger and her husband Abey.

Dear
,
I am now the webmaster at Divine. I have also been entrusted with all other Divine websites. We have moved all our websites to a centeral location, a server that has replication in US and India, so all our sites are accessed fast. I would like you to also add jesusandyou.com over to our servers. We are ready to pay for your expenses so far. Divine has decided that all sites be handeled by a single person and a single Divine recommended hosting provider. As you know that Aby and Swapna has sold cassets worldwide with this intenet address, they need this site, as this is all their hardwork. It has taken them years to get their message across the world, and now only if they have a way to put messages daily can they use it to its full extent. It is a charsmatic site, and they wish to keep it that way. Abey and Swapna trust me with this site, and so I ask you to please hand over the FTP login details, and I will send you payment that is required for this site.
Looking forward to an amicable settlement,
In Jesus,
Ruben.

Dear Mr. Preetha, and Mr.
,
I have brought all tensions here on a stand still. And I have been informed that we will settle this matter without dispute. I would like to know how you would like me to proceed. Please write to me immediately and tell me what to do. I will send you the money required right away on recipt of your mail. Abey’s father too has been contacted and they too would like to discuss with you on what can be an amicable settlement. Please write a letter to Abey or I will contact them for you. In any case I need to know how to proceed on this matter.
Love in Jesus, Ruben.

Subject: Ruben Here…

Dear Mrs. Preetha,
I am grateful to receive a friendly reply. I do understand your situation. I am not siding with anyone but just trying to resolve the matter. I do understand that your husband was helping Abey very much, until recently for some unknown cause. But from what I saw, your husband was making money out of this website and using it for publishing his book.
You see, the frustration of Abey and Swapna is that they have gone around the world preaching the gospel, and conducting retreats, and everyone who has seen them will try to contact them. Now the only point of contact he mentioned is the website address, which your husband registered for him. This website address is important because every cassettes, CD’s and videos sold have this printed on them. It is true that if I had not intervened they would have used their influence to get him back to India to resolve the matter, and I said not to do that, but I will try to talk to him. You can loose your visa because it is a H1 Visa if he is called back by the embassy. Abey can very well use Divine’s hold on the Embassy to get you all back here which evidently can result in loss of your husbands job.
I know that there must be problems from both sides, and I will definitely keep you all in my prayers. It is not only a bad name for you, and your family but also the more this matter gets bigger the worse it will become because you are against a well know couple, who have spent their whole lives in Charismatic renewal. So defiantly people who hear this matter will only support them. I try to work for Jesus with all of my heart and I work freely for any group who pray to Jesus. I go to a Pentecostal Jesus Youth gathering on Sat and Christian Youth group on Sunday. I live my life in prayers, and found that it is not what we try to show the world that matters, but what we really try to be and how God thinks of us.
To make matters take a turn, the best you can do right now is send me the FTP details of this website, and I will send you all expenses occurred on this website in full till date. Please let your husband know that I will resolve any problems here to the fullest extent that it will not be spoken of again. I will also make sure that you will not receive any more calls or any more action from Divine, or Abey or anyone else. I will settle this matter once and for all
Love in Jesus,
Ruben Gerad.

Volunteer, and no responsibility? (0)

Mr Glen La Rive has never been an administrator or an advisor to the Board at Divine Retreat Centre. He is one of the volunteer musicians serving in the Centre. – Fr.Augustine Valloran

The word Volunteer has a broader meaning, but I can be correct in explaining this. Fr.Augustine Valloran says Mr.Glen La Rive is a volunteering musician – but what I don’t understand is why Mr.Glen has to send the following letter if he is doing the work of a musician, and not an administrator:

Dear ,
I read all the e-mails you sent. I was very sad to read the contents. Whatever is happening has nothing to do with Divine. This is a personal matter between Ruben, Abey Swapna and you. Ruben is not a part of the Divine staff and is not at the divine but in his house in Trivandrum. Fr. Augustine had enquired with me after you spoke to him about this situvation. Abey and Swapna are on their own on most of their ventures abroad and so Divine Retreat centre is in the dark about this problem or regarding the money they collected etc.
We from here can only pray for all of you to solve this together instead of getting at each other since we are all god’s children. “Blessed are the peace makers for they will be called the children of God “(Mat. 5/9). I think all of you should forgive each other and get along with your ministries. I don’t think Fr. Mathew will interfere in this matter, but I am sure that he will pray for this to be solved.
Praying for you and the others.
Glen



I don’t care whether or not Mr.Glen is an administrator, but he is functioning as an administator. Mr.Glen has been with Divine Retreat Center from atleast 2000. Who is paying his travel expense, paying for his food and his medical expenses? If Fr.Augustine is paying a salary to Mr.Glen, he can’t be considered as a volunteer. The story according to Fr.Augustine – why he is a volunteer has a spin to it. The director Fr.Augustine Valloran has well trained his staff to answer the challenging inquiries. But in situations when his cronies were challenged, he will try to protect himself not his cronies. Can you see how Mr.Glen is protecting Fr.Augustine, but Fr.Augustine trying to wash off his hands when it comes to protecting Mr.Glen. In simple words, Fr.Augustine saying whatever Mr.Glen doing at Divine Retreat Cetner is on his own will, and not by the advises of the directors. Do you get it? This is something you should know. The emails that you send to Fr.Augustine or any other director for prayers, reach in the hands of people who are unknown to you – I don’t think your emails are ever read by the priests. Though the return reply will have the signature of Fr.Augustine, the email should be suspected that Fr.Augustine did not send it. These individuals who administer the communication in Fr.Augustine’s office, replying on the behalf of the priests, gets your email id, and other personal details. They may use those details to scam you later, so please be aware.

 

Devoured by the enemy? (0) 

Friday, February 3, 2006, 05:50 AM – Divine News

Dear Br. ,
You seems to be overly concerned about the whole issue. Again I tell you, if you believe God is on your side and truth remains in you, God will definitely defend you.
Psalm 139 23 Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. 24 See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

Examine yourself and ensure that you are right with God. How can God let His people be devoured by the enemy? His protection and defence is greater and mightier than that the people of the world can offer. Trust in Jesus. He is faithful and will fulfil all his promises to those who believe in Him.
Isaiah 41 10 So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.


This may sound like a lot of preaching, but all what I am suggesting is that you hold on to the Lord and all his promises because you already mentioned that you feel that it is a demonic attack.
And the Word of God is the sword when you fight against the enemy the devil. I have experienced the power in the word of God and depend on Him and His words and God has never failed me.
John 14 1″Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God[a]; trust also in me.

Look at the present situation as an opportunity to get closer to God and see His ways in your life.
Jeremiah 29 11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. 14 I will be found by you,” declares the LORD, “and will bring you back from captivity. [a] I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have banished you,” declares the LORD, “and will bring you back to the place from which I carried you into exile.”

Whether a person claims to be a servant of God or not, try to understand that all are human and are prone to weakness and sin. But as true Christian you should forgive unconditionally and pray for the person and when you do that God will defend you in miraculous ways.
Colossians 3:13 Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.

Submit your mind body and spirit to Jesus and the power and strength to overcome all challenges will be given to you. The Holy Spirit will come up on you and you will receive power from above.
Our intercessory group has already begun praying for you and your family. You shall see the power of God. God bless you and your family. In Jesus’ love

It went into a battle of words, hate mails from his side and I had to lodge a complaint about him to the police in Kottayam where he lives and works, even to the FBI. I was advised to institute a civil case. Who has the time or even the money for that? -Swapna Abraham, October 8, 2005

Medical doctor to evaluate the condition (0) 

Monday, February 6, 2006, 05:52 AM – Divine News

Dear Br. ,
Please send an email to: gethsemaneministries@yahoo.ca with the persons name, and the intercessory prayer group will pray for him.
May be it is premature to make assumption that the person is possessed by demons. I would suggest that you seek help from your pastor and or a medical doctor to evaluate the condition.
Jesus our divine physician who alone can heal the body mind and spirit will take care of the person. Trust in Jesus and He will show you the way.
The Lord will definitely answer our prayers and take care of the situation. So you and members of the family should fervently pray with love for the person you mentioned. If he/she has caused you any harm forgive him/her unconditionally.
May the precious blood of Jesus Christ protect you and your family, may the Holy Spirit give you strength, wisdom and guidance.
Romans 8:31 If God is for us, who can be against us?
Psalm 91 1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” 3 Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. 4 He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.


God bless you and your family. Yours in Christ Jesus

The following content appeared at www.abeyandswapna.com on August 5, 2002. Kiran Thomman of Eleazar Networks provided the space for the site www.abeyandswapna.com. Our 60 years old parents spent money from their pocket, travelled 50 miles, went all the way to meet Kiran to ask Kiran to remove the content. He talked to his pastor Rajesh Mathew of Joshua Generation, and did not removed the content. We asked Kiran Thomman about the person who published this profanity and asked for his address. He was elusive, and blamed it on the web master, later we found out that he worked with Ruben Gerad Mathew to publish this.
Kiran Thomman when he heard CBI is going to be in his door step, he shut down the website. After he learned, he will burn his fingers, he asked Mr.John Kodiyil to contact us. With a Christian spirit we forgave him, but now we regret that we allowed them to go. After a month, different content came up. Probably he might have thought AAS will back him up.
You may be wondering whether we will respond to their defamatory statements. Check this site everyday, you will read it.

The worst fear of a father and mother (0) 

Friday, February 10, 2006, 05:31 AM – Cover Up

The worst fear of any father or mother is how is their children doing when their children are away, and they suspect some harm is on the way. Our parents had that worst fear today. They were literally crying today, to see what will happen if we are attacked. Their focus was Manu Mathew who is hiding – no email or threats in the last few days that reached us. The Police could not catch him until now.

This is what we had to say our parents. If we had set aside the ‘forgiving’ spirit way back in 2002, and took these money hungry gang to court, and had sent them to some prison, we should not be facing these torture. Now we have to face this torture until these senseless gang get out of our lives.

Please pray for our parents.

Dear Uncle Pappi,
******* is not an artiste of any sort. He pays people and gets them to do work for him. In our case, I am sure that he has not paid us anything for our work. It is unlikely that Abey got paid without me knowing about it. I know for sure, by the grace of God, that I have no competition where I stand. It is just my present position that has placed me at a disadvantage. The guy had made good money through his IT job and through his website. I don’t know what else. He has made much selling our albums as well, on the net. Let’s leave this with that.
I just wanted you to know about the ******* issue. Let us not discuss this any more. It is not going to be of any good use. I definitely do not lose any sleep on account of this. Don’t know about the others. There is far too much happening in my life for me to even think for a second moment about this.
Very well, do let me know when you will be coming to Ooty.
The mission in Africa is awesome… simply wonderful. It is centred on the Eucharist.
That’s all for now. Let us keep praying for each other. Bye and God bless. Warm regards,
Swapna

 

Is this, Fr.Augustine Valloran’s stunt? (0) 

Monday, February 13, 2006, 05:13 AM – Fr.Augustine Vallooran

Based on your accusations, I would like you to furnish supporting evidence of your allegations, failing which and should you continue to with your reckless line of action, Divine Retreat Centre may be forced to take up legal action against you for your false allegations and defamatory remarks. – Fr.Augustine Valloran

Fr.Augustine Valloran made the above statement in February 2005. Was it a stunt? No doubt, it was a stunt. He had to show his Singapore retreat organizers that he was righteous. So he cooked up some heresy, asked the receptionist to send us the letter, and simply vanished from Singapore.

We wrote a 5 page reply to him after we received his statement, but never did we receive a reply back from him. So we called him up in March, 2005 to follow up on that, as well as because we did not receive any lawyer notice from him. Fr.Augustine Valloran only had to say, he is going to take legal action, and he disconnected the line.

We don’t know whether or not he has seen the evidences that we sent, but it is very clear – Fr.Augustine is not only proclaiming the gospel of Jesus, he also scares people with his tactics – probably learned from his counterpart the lawyer Abey Kalisseril. It is pathetic, he needs “legal action” in his preaching to survive.

If he claims, Divine Retreat Centre is a place where “God’ does work, why is he saying Divine Retreat Centre has to take legal action? Are they both contradicting each other? There are few things you should understand. There is no superior to Fr.Augustine Valloran, neither Divine Retreat Centre has any elders to look at Fr.Augustine’s accountability. If there was one, then we should have been contacted by them. Secondly it is ridiculous to see how these individuals use the name of ‘Divine Retreat Centre’ to scare the public. He can incite a fire among the Catholics with the statements that he made against us. You don’t have to doubt his influence also in the “upper hands”. Our family have been tortured by his cronies for 4 years now. We all faced it, we know how evil their plots are, and we survived all his sinister attacks.

So, if you are a Catholic, and have heard stories from Fr.Augustine Valloran about us, simply don’t believe him. We have evidences to show you how he is spreading false allegations and defamatory remarks about us.

 

Who is controlling Divine Retreat Centre? (0) 

Tuesday, February 14, 2006, 05:42 AM – Fr.Augustine Vallooran, Divine News

You see Divine members are not computer literate, atleast the majority of them, so most of this goes over their head, the only thing everyone knows now is that Abey and Swapna had a website, and that now you have decided to market yourself instead of Abey and Swapna who worked so hard to get all the people to contact them through this website. Can you deny that you are not getting mails for abey and swapa even now? Ruben Gerad Mathew, Divine Retreat Centre Webmaster

Who are these Divine members? Ruben Gerad Mathew is talking about Fr.Augustine Valloran, Fr.Mathew Naikomparambil, Fr.George Panackal, probably the Divine Youth also. Why they had to be ‘fed’ by Ruben Gerad Mathew or Abey & Swapna, instead of contacting us to get the facts?

Divine Retreat Centre is controlled by notorious hackers like Ruben Gerad Mathew, and his masters like Abey & Swapna, sadly not by their own ethics and spiritual convictions. Divine members are victims of cooked up stories of voluenteers in whom Fr.Augustine is so proud of.

Another channel for Malayalam entertainment:
Jeevan TV to start from July 14 KOCHI: With Jeevan Telecasting Corporation Ltd (JTCL) deciding to start telecasting from July 14, Kerala has got another Malayalam channel. The public limited company with an initial investment of Rs 25 crore will beam a 24-hour satellite TV channel from its two studios set up at Palarivattam in Kochi for news and for other programmes including discussions, debates, musicals and talkshows. The company chairman, Archbishop of Thrissur Mar Jacob Thoomkuzhi, and managing director P C Cyriac said at a press conference here on Wednesday that the studios would be inaugurated by Revenue Minister K M Mani and filmmaker Adoor Gopalakrishnan at 6 pm on Friday. Former Chief Minister P K Vasudevan Nair will inaugurate ‘Jeevan Clubs’, which are grassroots level societies with television viewers of Jeevan TV as members. Already there are 6000 shareholders and more will be added through private placement of shares. The face value of a share is Rs 1000 and the ordinary investors can become shareholders through Jeevan Clubs by investing as a group. The channel is expected to break even in two years. Jeevan TV will focus on information and education without ignoring entertainment. The channel will show films on Saturdays and Sundays. The new programmes will be objective and the entertainment programmes will not compromise on moral values. “The programmes will be such that they can be watched by the whole family sitting together,” Cyriac said. It will be run as a commercial channel and will not be under the control of the Church. Programmes worth Rs 4 crore are available with the company while more programmes are under production. The channel will be using digital technology. A part of the equipment has been purchased and is in use. Another batch of equipment will be installed and commissioned within six weeks. The channel’s main income will be from advertisements. It has banned ads of liquor. News bureaus will be set up at Kochi, Kozhikode, Thiruvananthapuram and Delhi. Paul Alukka, a director of the channel, was also present. The studios were blessed at a function on Thursday by Major Archbishop Cardinal Mar Varkey Vithayathil. He said at a time when the TV programmes are ruled by violence and excess of sex, a channel like Jeevan TV, which will uphold moral values, has much relevance. JTCL chairman Jacob Mar Thoomkuzhi, working chairman Fr Andrews Thazhath, vice-chairman Fr Augustine Vallooran, Jeevan Club co-ordinator P J Antony, managing director P C Cyriac, Bishop Thomas Chakyath and Rashtra Deepika resident manager Edison G Varghese were present.
… TV was showing the struggle of a 103 year old woman who maintains a family by working at this age in a quarry. A brave story of success, I was thinking. One of the guys remakred “chorunnunna muthoortham nokki ivanmar pattiniyum daridravum kanikkumallo” and changed to Jeevan TV. 5 year old kids in flasing apparel dancing to the tune of lajjavathiye. Right background for our lunch. A Jeevan TV viewer

Do you know us?

Hello Friend,

You might have already made a guess about the people who are behind this website.

The owners, their families regret that we had to publish this website. We have been persecuted for years, they stole our money and never allowed us to sleep a day peacefully. If you believe in good, justice, and the truth that need to be told, please stand with us. We want to tell you the ultimate truth, and you will read the truth on this site. We will respond to all the accusations of this team who is persecuting us.

There is a danger when Christianity is hijacked by some puritans who want money from people living outside of India. If Jesus had to make a comment, he would have said:
Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of dead men’s bones and everything unclean. Mathew 23:27

If you know Abey & Swapna, Fr.Augustine Valloran, John Kodiyil, Manu Mathew, and want to “act” on behalf of them against us, we would advise you not to do any “stupid” things. Their aim is to sabotage your life as they have tried to do to us.

Please continue to pray for us. We believe God will bring victory to us.

Money problem looming the Conference Power 2006 (0) 

Tuesday, February 21, 2006, 07:13 PM – Divine News

The Divine Retreat Centre has never demanded money from the public or individuals to support its work in any of their outreach programmes as you claim, including that in Chicago in 2002. Fr.Augustine Valloran
Isn’t demanding money from the public equivalent to not paying it’s guests after receiving their services? The money fight looms the International Youth Conference Power 2006 which will be held at Divine Retreat Centre soon. Read the reply from a guest who was supposed to speak at the Conference. Why does anyone invite a person from a different country to speak, and later does not have money to pay for his travel?

I am sorry to say I will not be coming to India this year. I would very much like to but our ministry is not able to come up with the large amount of money it costs for flights. We tried to talk to the Indian Syro Malabar community in Chicago about supporting this mission, but they were not interested. – Name Undisclosed

How can anyone agree to Fr.Augustine’s claim that his organization is not demanding money? The act of demanding money if generates a bad reputation, he is smart at demanding services for FREE!

 

How does she know? (0)

The guy had made good money through his IT job and through his website. I don’t know what else. Swapna Abraham

As far as we know, we haven’t shown our bank accounts to anyone, so how does she know we made a lot of money? There are few possibilities we can think of, that is she has got the details from Ruben Gerad Mathew who hacked our Internet account, later hacked our bank account. The next possibility is that she stole our personal information when she, her husband and her children stayed in our home.We can’t rule out another possibility – did Jesus tell her that we have a lot of money? Confusing, isn’t it?

The Worship leader Swapna’s real problem is that we have a lot of money. So, would you be surprised if we say she does not have any other motive behind spreading her trash except to blackmail us.

 

Who’s the next Singing Couple? (0) 

Friday, February 24, 2006, 05:11 AM – Divine Abey & Swapna

It was Abey & Swapna who were “the” only Singing Couple according to the Divine Retreat Centre marketing. That has changed in 2006, the prestigious title is now given to Glen & Theresa. Does that mean Abey & Swapna is not a singing couple anymore?
Who will receive the prestigious title of “the” Singing couple next time? We have to wait see. It is all in the hands of “God’ who raises someone up, and brings him down. Whatever may be the hostility, the International marketing team at Divine Retreat Centre is doing a great job.

 

Fr.George Panackal’s character. (0) 

Saturday, February 25, 2006, 07:01 AM – Divine News


Mr.Mathew from Houston says Fr.George Panackal is a saint. After I spoke to Fr.George – way back in 2003, I have to admit that Mr.Mathew’s opinion is wrong. I felt that Fr.Panackal’s character is cheaper than the character of a street rowdy. He screams on phone, never gives a chance to you to talk, and makes irrational arguments.

You may be wondering why I had to talk to Fr.George Panackal. Fr.George Panackel is the director of Divine Retreat Centre. Being the director of Divine Retreat Centre, I wanted him to be aware of the cyber hacking, scams, crimes taking place in his office. I was not concerned about someone else who is a victim, but I was there for my family. Before I spoke to him, I sent all the evidence to him while he was in Florida. He agreed to talk.
When the conversation started, he started screaming over the phone “You solve the problem with Abey & Swapna, not with me”. I asked him politely to listen to what I say before he makes his conclusions. He screamed again “Why didn’t you settle the money issues with Abey & Swapna?” It was hard for me to convince him that I’m not calling to talk about a money dispute – I believed he was aware of the agenda we had. He screamed “There is a lot of people who have disagreements with what we do at Divine.”
He does not want to stop with his foolish arguments – a good tactic to keep your enemy away. After I could not bear his screaming, I told him “Listen Fr.George, please don’t talk like the way you preach on the stage. You have a notion that the people you give preaching are drug addicts, alcoholics, and troubled people. I don’t have that problem. But I came to you, and you agreed to talk, not to fix my problem if you understand it well, but to fix your problem.” He understood the seriousness of the problem only after he came to know the police complaint that my family filed in January 2003 against Divine Retreat Centre webmaster Ruben Gerad Mathew. His screaming subsided. He told me he would investigate into the issues of Divine Retreat Centre’s resources being misused by its webmaster like Ruben Gerad Mathew, and its worship leaders like Abey & Swapna.
In the conversation, these are some important things I learned.
 Have you heard of ‘Don’t Ask Don’t Tell?’ I learned this from Fr.George Panackal of Divine Retreat Center. According to “their” policy this couple Abey & Swapna does not give any kind of reimbursement or accounts to anyone. The reason? Fr.Panackal did not tell the reason but he told me, that is what they practice.

 Fr.George told me he did not want Abey & Swapna to go to the US after he heard that they are going to participate in music concerts. He knew that will end up in more problems.

 Fr.Panackal is the director of the Malayalam section, so he does not have any control over the English section where Fr.Augustine Valloran is the director.

 The couple Abey & Swapna is not a Divine Retreat Center employee, so they can’t take any action against them. He told me Glen and Theresa are employees, so any kind of action can be taken against people like Glen. He brushed it off as a personal problem. This is what Fr.George Panackal told me:

There are criminals coming to Divine Retreat Center. How can we know that they are criminals? It is none of our job to do something with the criminals. We may use the service of anyone irrespective of their background.


He told me a good example. He says he visited his friend Mr.Joe in Florida, and did some mischief acts and left the city, that caused some harm to someone else. So, who would be responsible for the mischief acts? He says Mr.Joe is not responsible. What he was trying to impress everyone is that Divine Retreat Centre is not responsible for anything that happens inside its wall. A good defense, isn’t it?

 

Court seeks police report on Divine Retreat Centre (0) 

Friday, March 3, 2006, 08:24 PM – Divine News

Kochi: The Kerala High Court Friday asked police to submit a complaint following allegations ranging from murders to foreign funding at one of Asia’s largest religious hubs – the Muringur Divine Retreat Centre – near here.
After complaints of harassment by a former woman employee of the centre, the court took up the case suo moto. Justice K. Padmanabhan Nair asked senior police official Vincent Paul to submit a complaint in six weeks.
The court has also asked the police to inquire into three alleged murders that took place at the religious retreat, possible foreign funding and reported involvement of Kerala bureaucrats and police officials with the centre.

The Muringur centre falls under the Ernakulam Archdiocese of the Syro Malabar Church.
Syro Malabar Church spokesperson Father Paul Thelakat said the court orders had to be respected.
“The court order was reportedly given on the basis of an anonymous letter and a CD,” Thelakat said.
The retreat centre, which was set up in the late 80’s, attracts people from all religions across the country.
The centre, which conducts week-long in-house prayer sessions, has appointed several people as preachers. It has also opened branches throughout India.

Saturday, March 11, 2006, 06:46 PM – Divine Abey & Swapna

ALSO: Sunday, April 2, 2006, 12:49 PM

Abey grew up as a lonely single child of his parents, seeking love, grabbing affection and getting everything that he wanted, at any cost….until he was completely lost in the sinful passions and venoms of this world. He wanted to get out of it all-but was stuck for life. He ran away from home once, and was found; twice, and returned himself-fed up. T’was the love of x that saved him from sin and death: that put a song in his heart and a purpose in his life.
Swapna was the lone achiever, winning every feat she ventured upon – the girl with the magical touch. But beneath all that was grudge, hardheartedness, selfish ambitions and a terrible ingratitude to the Lord she talked so much to, but whom she hardly knew.She made it,yes; but she never felt a sense of accomplishment till she met who gave her a new tune and a new heart.

We are not living together anymore (0) 

Sunday, March 12, 2006, 07:06 PM – Abey Kalisseril

Dear Pappi Uncle,
I am Swapna, Abey’s wife. I am a Jacobite, but very attached to the ministry with the Divine Retreat Centre in Muringoor, Chalakudy, Kerala. It is a Catholic Retreat Centre.
It would be good if you can go there with Sunil to attend the retreat. It is a week long programme starting every Sunday morning and finishing on Friday afternoon. You have to stay there for the whole week. Sunil will be freed from drugs, for sure. God sees your pain as his father and I am sure that He will set your son free.
When you go there, do meet Fr.Augustine Vallooran, the Director of the retreat centre. You must go to the English section. If Fr.Vallooran is not there, you can meet Fr.Joseph Vaniamthara, the Administrator. Do mail me and let me know as soon as possible about when you will want to go there and I will inform the Fathers and ask them to give you a room. It will be more convenient for you and your son.
Just thought that I would tell you, in case you will hear about it and get surprised. Abey has decided to live by himself and so we are not living together anymore. Never the less, I am continuing singing and preaching, but alone with our two children, as that is the only thing that keeps me happy and going. But it is true that Abey was on drugs for six to seven years and got out of it when he attended the retreat at Divine in 1991. Whatever else he is doing, I know for sure that he is still out of drugs.
Praying for Sunil and for you. God bless you and fill you with hope.
If you should need to contact me, the number is **********. Please keep this number confidential.
Thank you. Warm regards,
Swapna

Court Orders Probe of Largest Catholic Retreat Center (0) 

Thursday, April 3, 2003, 04:50 PM – Divine News

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM, India

Local Church people say they welcome a court probe into allegations against a retreat center in Kerala state.
On March 10, the Kerala High Court asked the state government to set up a special investigation team to probe allegations against the Divine Retreat Centre, considered one of the largest Catholic retreat centers in the world. Thiruvananthapuram (formerly known as Trivandrum), the Kerala capital, is 2,815 kilometers south of New Delhi.
The court acted on an anonymous letter and two compact discs it reportedly received alleging a series of crimes against the center such as murders, rape and foreign exchange violations.

Vincentian priests manage the center in Muringoor, 264 kilometers north of Thiruvananthapuram.
The court took up the case suo motu (on its own initiative) and appointed a senior police official, Vincent M. Paul, to head the probe team. Judge K. Padmanabhan Nair has asked the team to file its report within two weeks. He has also asked the government to provide support to the team.
Father George Panackal, the center’s director, says his people welcomed the court order and police probe. “The investigation can bring facts into light and help prove the allegations are baseless and motivated,” the Vincentian priest told UCA News a day after the court order.
Father Paul Thelakat, spokesperson of the Syro-Malabar Church, says the Church respects the court order. “Let the inquiry be done and truth come to light,” the priest said while speaking with UCA News. The center comes under his Oriental Catholic Church’s Ernakulam-Angamaly archdiocese.
Father Panackal said there have been several attempts in the past to “defame the institution and its leadership.” He cited the case of Crime, a monthly magazine that carried several reports against the center. “We did not initiate legal action against the magazine because we preach forgiveness and believe that truth can never be suppressed,” the center’s director explained.
Father Panackal claimed that the Divine Retreat Center is the largest retreat center in the world. It has served more than 10 million people from all over the world since 1990. The center conducts weekly retreats in six Indian languages and English throughout the year.
Explaining the origin of the retreat ministry, Father Panackal said it began in 1977 at Potta, a village six kilometers north of Muringoor. The center shifted to Muringoor in 1990, after the staff found facilities at Potta inadequate for “huge crowds.” The center now has 400 professionally trained counselors to guide people attending the retreats, in addition to about 1,200 volunteers from all over India who coordinate the center’s activities. The center also manages several subsidiary units that serve “thousands of people” in distress, Father Panackal said. “We never close our doors to anyone who seeks our help. We provide them a family environment and care,” he added.
One such unit is St. Vincent Home, which houses 87 adults and 13 children infected with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) that usually leads to AIDS. “They experience a new life and inner healing,” the priest explained. Another unit is Shantipuram (city of peace), which houses 450 mentally ill patients. Father Panackal said the retreat center plans to set up an institution by 2007 to cater to 2,000 mentally challenged people.
The retreat center has opened Divine De-addiction Center, which helps 150 substance abusers. Maria Shanthi Bhavan (home of peace), started in November 2004, houses 100 destitute women. Another home, started in 1990, caters to some 150 widows and abandoned wives, and 300 children.
Father Panackal said he mentioned all these activities “not to impress anybody, but to clarify our mission.” He added that he regrets the court did not hear their views before issuing the probe order.
Legal trouble for the center began eight months ago when a woman claiming to be a former employee of the retreat center told a magistrate that a priest official of the center raped and impregnated her. The woman, Mini Varghese, was been in judicial custody in a theft case when she made the complaint.

Father Panackal said a Hindu police official investigated the allegations reported them as baseless. “I told the police official that we are ready for the DNA test. But they told us that their investigations proved the complaint is a pack of lies and there is no need for DNA tests,” the priest said.
Father Panackal added that the center had not employed any Mini Varghese and that it has no priest with the name the woman mentioned. But he recalled one Mini Varghese who attending a retreat program 10 years ago. “Her father brought her and we have no knowledge about her (afterward),” he said. Father Panackal suspects the allegations are part of a conspiracy to defame his center, a view shared by Paul Pallan, a local Christian politician. “I have never attended the retreat at the center. But I feel the court should have given the retreat center an opportunity to hear its views,” Pallan told UCA News. He said thousands of families benefit from the center.


Some Hindu Organisations Urge for Closure of Popular Divine Retreat Centre (0) 

Tuesday, April 4, 2006, 08:23 PM – Divine News

Thrissur, Kerala, March 29, 2006 (SAR NEWS):
A Hindu organisation has urged the authorities to take steps to close down the Divine Retreat Centre (DRC) at Muringoor. Hindu Aikya Vedi (Hindu Unity Centre) general secretary, E S Biju, alleged at a press conference here March 27 that antisocial activities were being carried out at the DRC.
He was elaborating on the decisions taken at the two-day state convention of the Vedi, which concluded at the temple town of Guruvayur March 26. Hundreds of delegates representing 69 Hindu organisations participated in the convention. DRC, a venture of the Vincentian congregation was established in 1990 mainly for propagating the Word of God. Retreats are held in seven languages – Malayalam, Tamil, Telugu, Konkani, Kannada, Hindi and English beginning every Sunday afternoon and concluding the following Saturday morning throughout the year. The aggregate attendance a week on the average is 10,000 and it often swells to 30,000 during the peak season. Besides, DRC conducts prayer services, preaching, discourses and sacraments throughout the year. It also assists devotees in their spiritual rejuvenation and liberation from alcohol and drug addiction. The centre also holds healing services. Barren married women too have borne children after praying at the retreat centre, the sources added.
DRC also runs a de-addiction centre, a 100-bed after-care home for AIDS patients, St. Mary’s Home for Mother and Child Care, a 150-bed general hospital, a tailoring school, Divine Printers and Publishers, Divine Voice monthly magazine, a bible college and Divine Diary Farm. The centre’s activities are being run smoothly with a 400-strong professionally trained counselling team to initiate spiritual awakening in devotees, along with a 1200-member volunteer force. The centre also provides remunerative employment to several hundred persons.
A charter of 22 demands were unanimously cleared at the convention, which included ban on all publications hurting the religious sentiments of Hindus, dissolution of the development corporation for converted Christians, Minority Education Commission and abolition of financial assistance for running Madrassas.
He said the government should do away with the proposed move to include Dalit Christian converts in the list of Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribes.

Mysterious deaths at Muringur Divine Retreat Centre (0) 

Tuesday, April 4, 2006, 05:08 PM – Divine News

Besides moving the High Court, an action council has demanded CBI inquiry into the mysterious death of a youth at the famous Christian retreat centre at Muringur in Thrissur district.
According to the complaint, Thoompackal Babu (37) of Manjapra near Angamaly was found dead at the Muringur Divine Centre in mysterious circumstances on March 17 last year.
Action council convenor T P Venu and chairaman K D Biju claimed that the youth was beaten up badly and was injected with drugs when he tried to cross over the wall and barged into the stage.
He was then put into the cell for the mentally-ill inmates and was tied to the cot. Post mortem report had found blow on the brain as the cause for death, they claimed, citing several other points also.
They also claimed that the police came to Babu’s house eight times to make his wife sign an affidavit saying that she did not have any complaint. According to the Centre authorities, Babu was mentally ill and caused disturbances after gatecrashing into another podium where Tamil retreat was on. Hence, he was put into the cell and it was a natural death.
Meanwhile, there are also reports about several other such incidents of mysterious deaths and sexual abusements in the popular retreat centre, run by the Vincentian priests.
A weekly had in the past reported that several anonymous people had been buried at the public cemetry near to the Divine Centre. The weekly also claimed that sexual abusements were going on in the Centre in the name of piety and counselings.

Kochi, Mar12: There has been demand from various quarters following the High Court order directing the functioning of the Muringoor Divine Centre should be probed by a Special Investigating Team headed by an officer of the rank of IG, that the Public Education Secretary Ms. Lidda Jacob be suspended before the inquiry.
According to a report several public servants such as Inspectors General of Police and the wife of a State Minister are closely associated with the functioning of the Divine Centre. They were allegedly members of the Advisory Body of the centre until recently.
Mr T P Nandakumar, Editor, Crime Weekly alleged that a group of senior IAS, IPS and other government officials are working behind this ‘underworld’ operations. They are likely to sabotage the inquiry. Ms. Lidda Jacob should be suspended as she might sabotage the inquiry, he alleged.
This centre receives huge funds from the Social Welfare Department. An estimated 9000 people are on the voters list of the centre.
It is also alleged that since the Christian Church lobby in the state is so strong with money, muscle and political power, it could even torpedo the inquiry.

Please don’t get confused by the mammoth information on this site. The following tips will help you to make your access to this site simplified.

In a crime, there are two parties. One party is a victim or victims. The other party is perpetrator – someone who commits the crime. On YouMeAndJesus.com, you will see both the parties. However the victims’ names are undisclosed to protect their privacy.

When a crime takes place, the investigator gathers the information to prosecute the perpetrators. The perpetrators will try not to leave any trace of evidence, however intelligent crime detectives can crack any case. In our case, nobody was murdered, but the perpetrators aim was to do that, and their folly was exposed when they assumed nobody was watching them, and the emails they themselves wrote landed in our hands.

This is a high-tech extortion and murder attempt. What you see on this site are e-mails the perpetrators have written to others to make their plan succeed. You will see emails Fr.Augustine Vallooran, Abey Kalisseril, Swapna Abraham, Manu Mathew, Ruben Gerad Mathew had sent to different people. Also, you will see the pornographic and defamatory statements these perpetrators published on websites to extort money from us.

We have tried to explain the perpetrators emails, and to rationally expose their extortion tactics. You will see our comments in BLUE.
Not all the people mentioned on this site are perpetrators, but there are individuals who supported these perpetrators – you will see their emails also on this site. This is more as supporting evidence.
We’ve provided, some of the information that you see on this site, to the Police which will help the law enforcement in India to stop cyber crimes against Non-Resident Indians.
You should not use the information from this website to physically harm, threaten, or use against anyone. If you are a victim to a similar crime, you have to work with law enforcement agencies and your lawyers if you would like to bring the perpetrators to justice. We believe that the Judicial System of India is good at bringing the culprits to justice. But these perpetrators use the loopholes and also their mental state (what can you expect after years of drug addiction) force them to intimidate the victims. Our advice to you is that, please protect yourself and your family from being victims to cyber crimes. There are cyber snipers like Ruben Gerad Mathew – the webmaster of Divine Retreat Centre – and Abey & Swapana are on the loose.

 

Responding to Benny Punnathara (0) 

Monday, April 10, 2006, 04:42 PM – Divine News

Hello, BENNY PUNNATHARA (Chief Editor, Shalom Voice)

I had a chance to read your editorial from the March edition of Shalom Voice magazine. You touched an interesting subject, and your calling for prayers for Divine Retreat Centre is very encouraging.

I think there are two kinds of people who are praying for Divine Retreat Centre. One, as you requested in your editorial – to pray to protect the reputation of the organization – the other kind of people are praying hard to expose the darkness in that organization so that the innocents will not be deceived anymore. You may disagree, but many are still praying to open the eyes of the leaders of that organization, for God to reveal the truth for not to lead the people astray.

At least you agree that there are “drawbacks” – however it is alarming to note that you are also trying to accuse the visitors and volunteers. Abuse, deaths, scams, cyber hacks, slanders, lies, scare tactics – are they simple “drawbacks” or in plain terms “crimes”? Don’t you think the leaders of that Organization have some participation into the allegations?

The whole world knows that Divine Retreat Centre is feeding the poor, taking care of the homeless. Good things, but it is all impossible if hard working people don’t send in money to make it happen. I don’t think the leaders of Divine Retreat Centre is pulling money from their bank accounts to feed the poor. So, don’t forget the fact that the kingdom of Divine Retreat Centre is built on public’s money.

Do you think Jesus will go after the good things you are talking about Divine Retreat Centre, or will Jesus go after the one lost sheep? Your concern is, the reputation of Divine is at stake, but what about the pain the family is experiencing whose members died in Divine’s premises. Did someone give any attention to the complaints the girl is having who is accusing, there is sexual abuse happening in that organization. How can someone find fairness in the “good”, when “evil” exists in the same place, and is practiced as a defence to proclaim good? It is foolishness to blame it on Devil, and trying to protect the Divine leaders.

Benny, if you are taking proud in the “revival” that Divine caused to happen, you should be proud of the Catholics only. I don’t agree Divine Retreat Centre has made any impact among the Protestants of India, or the Pentecostals. It is sad to say, but leaders of Divine Retreat Centre like Fr.Augustine Vallooran is very much “anti-protestant”. He goes aloof from non-Catholics. Look at some of the leaders of Divine Retreat Centre in other countries; they don’t even speak to non-Catholics. Please don’t try to blame it on other religion, denomination as “vested” interests. If Divine Retreat Centre and its leaders can’t respect the families having concerns, and can’t give some justice to the victims’ families, they have to atleast respect a High Court Judge’s interest who wants to bring justice to the needy.

However the irony is that when it comes to retreats, the leaders of Divine Retreat Centre like Fr.Augustine Vallooran need non-Catholic churches like Baptists churches to host the retreats. The Divine leaders in whom you take proud give catholic mass to non-catholics – a fundamental deviation from the Catholic Canon law. Without singing songs from a Hillsongs album – who are non-catholics, many of these retreats will lose its breath. If your denomination has been benefitted from the contribution of non-Catholics, it is called “Anti-Semitism” if you think nobody else have salvation, and blaming on “vested” interests.

It doesn’t matter what will come out of the investigation, and I will have no surprise although the leaders of this organization will walk free. But, hear what the Bible says:

“Do not mistreat an alien or oppress him, for you were aliens in Egypt. 22″Do not take advantage of a widow or an orphan. 23 If you do and they cry out to me, I will certainly hear their cry. 24 My anger will be aroused, and I will kill you with the sword; your wives will become widows and your children fatherless.” Exodus 22:21-22
What we read in the media is a whistle blower. If God hasn’t seen the tears of the ones who were oppressed by Divine directors like Fr.Augustine Vallooran, I may someday reject my faith, and become a neo-pagan.


SOME ‘DIVINE’ THOUGHTS: BENNY PUNNATHARA (Chief Editor)
The Divine Retreat Centre, which is hailed as the largest retreat centre in the world, has been a matter of wonder both to the faithful and the pagans. It was really amazing to see people belonging to various castes and creed speaking different languages and belonging to diverse denominations coming together for the retreats and getting renewed and transformed in the love and happiness offered by our Lord. The fact that they were able to serve food for thousands of people, 365 days an year, uninterruptedly was itself a matter of amazement.
Divine Retreat Centre inspired thousands of nominal Christians to return to living faith. Divine has caused the emancipation of many alcoholstricken families. Hundreds of people who viewed suicide as their sole way out of financial debt are indebted to Divine Retreat Centre for their faith filled life of today. Undeniable is the role played by the Divine in the spiritual rejuvenation of the Malayalees around the world. It has sheltered many a person and family by its rehabilitation programmes for the insane, the Aids patients and so on. But, the allegations that occurred in the newspapers and media during these days have been deeply agonizing. What should be our attitude when the interference of the court, the investigations by the police and the tortures by the media is pointed against this ministry? The foes of the renewal ministries will be rejoicing because they have got a whipping rod. The communal powers would take it as a golden opportunity to malign and tarnish Christians. It is easy to slander and criticize. But, often we fail to consider the tears and toils behind the administration of such an enormous ministry. How difficult it would be to guide a huge group comprised of robbers, murderers, drunkards and neurotic people. It is a tough task to find the required number of ministers. When persons lacking in proper training or spiritual experience are forced to be employed, drawbacks may occur.
The Employees’ Forum formed under the auspices of Divine Retreat Centre was intended to prepare the officials to stand for truth and justice amidst the corruptionfilled officialspheres. As a result, a great number of people quit bribery. A lot of people began to consider work as a service to God. It is a real pity to condemn such a good enterprise as a means of corruption. Many officials who are accepted honest encouraged this ministry for the common welfare. It is unfortunate to picture even that good as evil.
Above all what Divine has done is spiritual warfare. When the strongholds of evil break down, they will certainly retaliate. It is certain that the devil will employ any means to annihilate such a ministry. So, this situation is to be viewed spiritually. We should also not ignore the possibility of vested interests, communal motives and personal grudges behind these allegations. Whatever may be the source of these problems, these are days to be spent in earnest prayer.
Drawbacks are likely to occur in a ministry where such a great number of people gather. But, this should not be taken for a reason to underrate the great benefits that the people of Kerala have received through Divine because it certainly is a place chosen by God. And God has indeed come down there to give peace of heart, healing for mind and body, and liberation to every soul. Every village in Kerala will have persons capable to testify this truth. Therefore, when we begin to praise God for the good He has poured upon us through Divine, God will transform every evil into good.
What we need now is not the Pharisaic attitude that grabs stones to throw when problems occur, but the Christian spirit that kneels down to pray!

Kerala High Court Directs Govt. To Probe Activities of Christian Divine Retreat Centre 

Vested Interest Suspected Behind Complaint

By Frederick Noronha

http://www.mail-archive.com/goanet@goanet.org/msg38069.html

http://www.cbcisite.com/cbcinews797.htm
KOCHI, Kerala, March 14, 2006 (SAR NEWS) — The Kerala High Court directed the state government on March 10 to constitute a special investigation team (SIT) to investigate the various activities of the Divine Retreat Centre (DRC) at Muringoor in Thrissur district within two weeks.
Justice K. Padmanabhan Nair, acting suo motu on an anonymous letter, ordered an investigation into the alleged “criminal and social activities” in DRC. The offences under the Foreign Exchange Regulation Act, the Foreign Exchange Management Act and scandals like rape and deaths of some persons under mysterious circumstances should be investigated, the order added.
DRC, a venture of the Vincentian Congregation established in 1990 mainly for propagating the Word of God, has earned a pride of place among the pilgrim centres of the country, a spokesman for the centre told SAR News March 11. Over 25,00,000 devotees from various parts of India and abroad have visited the centre so far.
DRC conducts prayer services, preaching, discourses and sacraments throughout the year. Besides helping the devotees in their spiritual rejuvenation and liberation from alcohol and drug addiction, the centre also conducts healing services. Barren married women too have borne children after praying at the retreat center, the spokesman added.
Though DRC was set up mainly for spiritual enrichment and retreats, it also houses a de-addiction centre, a 100-bed after-care home for AIDS patients, St. Mary’s Home for Mother and Child Care, a 150-bed general hospital, a tailoring school, Divine Printers and Publishers, Divine Voice monthly magazine, a bible college and Divine Diary Farm.
The centre’s activities are being run smoothly with a 400-strong professionally trained counseling team to initiate spiritual awakening in the devotees, along with a 1200-member volunteer force.
IGP to head probe team:
The SIT investigation will be headed by Inspector General of Police Vinson M. Paul, the judge said. Mr. Paul is presently working as managing director of Police Housing Construction Corporation, Thiruvananthapuram. The Inspector General of Police is free to select the members of his team and the Director General of Police should make their services available to the team, the court added. SIT could resort to scientific methods such as polygraph test, brain mapping, DNA test, finger printing, etc.
The court directed the government to issue a notification under Section 17 of the Prevention Corruption Act conferring power on SIT to investigate the offences under the Act. It should also inquire into the allegations of unnatural deaths that have taken place there and find out whether there was a person by name Karyavelu working in the burial ground and another person by name Rinu attached to the Divine Retreat Centre and whether they died under mysterious circumstances.
Allegations of rape

A woman (identity concealed), now an under-trial prisoner lodged in the Kozhikode district jail, has complained to the district judge, Kozhikode, that she had been raped by a Catholic priest, Father Mathew Thadathil, attached to the centre and that she had become pregnant and gave birth to a baby. She had lodged the complaint with the Koratty police station, August 31, 2005. She was in DRC from November 2003 to June 2005, according to the complaint.

The Koratty police had registered a case in this connection, but made no progress in the investigation. The court said SIT should investigate the case. Circle Inspector of Police K.S. Sudarshan had investigated the matter, official sources told SAR News March 11.
The woman also alleged that bodies of several unidentified persons were found dumped on the national highway and rail-tracks near DRC. According to her, the bodies were not that of accident victims or of people who had died natural deaths.

The centre gets millions of rupees as foreign aid and Father Thadathil had tried to misappropriate Rs 300 million received for the orphanage attached to the centre. Hence it was necessary to investigate the role of the government officials in the running of the centre and whether any of the public servants had committed offences punishable under the Prevention of Corruption Act, the judge observed.
The team should also collect from the court the three CDs and newspaper cuttings sent to the court by the author of the letter and seek further directions if necessary. SIT should file a preliminary report as to the action taken in the matter within a month from the date of the constitution of the Special Investigation Team in this regard.
The director of the Divine Retreat Centre, Father George Panackal, was not available for comments on the court order.

Dear ******,
Praise God! Words cannot express how good it feels to hear from you again. We have suffered incredibly for the past seven months due to the attack there has been on our ministry and in particular on our credibility. For the kind of work that we do, reputation is very important; and once that is at stake then we have really lost much. Varghese is not only against Abey but also against me. We can only pray that God who knows everything will bring the truth to light.
Our God is faithful. He who called us is faithful. He will see us through. Last year we went twice to Australia, once again to Africa, to the Philippines; and had amazing outreaches. We were invited to all these places.

In November according to Amy’s doctor’s request, I took her to San Fransisco from the Philippines. Abey returned home as we couldn’t afford to go together; moreover Varghese was mailing us all kinds of threats that he would get us arrested and so on… God have mercy on him. We were told in February by the doctor to show her again in 6 month’s time to ascertain whether the growth in her eye was a tumor. Well this time, the doctor checked her, the growth was still there, not a tumor he confirmed…. but this was the miracle…. Amy was able to read normally with that eye. The doctor couldn’t believe it!!!! Our God is an awesome God. Last month, we were invited again to East Africa; Dar es Salaam, Arusha and Nairobi. There were mighty miracles and wonders in Jesus’ Name. A middle aged woman’s throat cancer gone totally, a young man who suffered a stroke was healed… It was so amazing!

We are so happy to hear about Craig’s Marriage. Do convey our felicitations to him.
We don’t know if we will ever come again to ****. It must be cold there now… Inspite of the many invitations that we have received to minister in the States, this issue with Varghese stands as a stumbling block. If it is in God’s will, He will make a way….
Adrian is in a boarding school seven hours away from home. He was with us in Africa as it was his school holidays. Amy will be joining her brother in August. They are growing up well. They do remember you with much love. They had soooo much fun at your home.
Abey suffered a fracture in a toe before we left for Africa. I fractured my toe after we reached there. Adrian was down with fever and nose bleeds over there for a few days. It was really scary. Yet we kept doing our Lord’s work. Now back at home, we are taking a little rest.
Do convey our good wishes to Pastor **** and the lovely Church in ******.Our good wishes are with you. I wonder what impression our friend has given Pastor ****** about us. God bless him.
At a time like this, you really have no idea how much it means to hear from you. I really appreciate your thoughtfulness ****. May the Lord continue to bless you and your family. Thank you for your friendship.
As always,
Swapna

Dear *****,
Hello! Praise God! It is with a heavy heart that I am writing you this mail. I was wondering whether I should ever tell you about it, but considering the damage that we have already incurred I thought you should know.
You would remember the couple that accompanied us on our mission to *****. The gentleman made great monetary demands on us by the time we were leaving the country. We paid him what we thought was fair towards him and agreed to pay some more; but now he is asking for too much, more than we can ever imagine. He has been telling all the churches that hosted us there in the States that we made $30,000 and absconded without giving account. He has sadly even written pornographic emails concerning us and cc’d it to several people.
All of this has not deterred us in our commitment to what God has called us for. Adrian is now in a mission boarding school, it was his own decision as he wanted a more settled routine. Amy will join him next year. This is a school for the children of missionaries all over the world, just an 8 hour drive from our home. We after our world tour went to Africa, Australia twice and to Singapore. We are now in the Philippines. It is hard to do what we are doing, with all this harassment and blackmail. It is worse when it comes from an associate of 11 years! We wonder what he will have already told Pastor Rajesh, or even you.
We were a little late to let people know, as we don’t really find the time to work on the computer as much as we would like to. This has taken a toll on Abey’s health. Please pray that God will bring peace and that we will be able to persevere till the end.
We remember you and the time that we shared at your home with much love and gratitude. Hope your family’s keeping well. God bless you.
As always,
Swapna

 

Scanner on conversion centre Allegations of rape, murder Kerala; High Court orders probe (0) 

Saturday, April 15, 2006, 10:07 AM – Divine News

From S. Chandrasekhar in Thiruvanthapuram, Statesman
Long before Pope John Paul II gave a clarion call for harvesting of souls and planting of Crosses across Asia, the Christian Church in Kerala has been doing the very same, with the Christian population estimated at around 23 per cent of the 3.25 crore population in this tiny state which hardly occupies 1 per cent of India’s land area. This is not taking into account the 7 to 8 per cent crypto-Christians, who are actually practising Christianity but retaining their Hindu identity, to enjoy the reservation benefits for backward Hindus.
Earlier it was the organised Churches like Roman Catholics, Syrian, Jacobites, Protestants, etc. who indulged in conversion, taking advance of the poverty of Hindus. There are Bishops in Kerala who claim that their ancestors were High Caste Nampoothiris and that they were converted to Christianity by Saint Thomas. This claim is highly disputable since arrival of St. Thomas to Kerala is not factually authenticated and why should Nampoothiris who enjoyed everything, due to their high stature, should convert to an alien religion? The ground reality in Kerala is that the supposedly majority Hindus are at the economic mercy of the Christians who control the landed properties, commercial establishments, financial transactions in almost entire South Kerala, the north being in control of the 22 per cent Muslim population. The entire forest area of Kerala, except in parts of Malabar are under the control of Christian encroachers, who have been allotted ownership ‘Pattas’. Ganja cultivation and illicit liquor have made them immensely rich. The liquor barons who are the effective rulers whether the left or the Congress comes to power are from the Christian Community. The sex rackets thriving in Kerala have also an alleged link to the Christian community. Innumerable are the cases of poor Christian girls who are forced to become ‘nuns’ due to poverty in their houses, being sexually exploited by the priests, murdered and thrown into wells, the latest being the case of sister Abhaya which is under CBI probe.
Now conversion has been taken over by the Pentecostal churches who have established shops in every nook and corner of Kerala. Crores and crores of foreign money is being pumped in by them for conversion of almost entire 30 per cent of the Hindu population, who are SC and ST. Bible conventions, miracle curing, treatment for drugs and alcohol addicts, meditation centre for depressed persons, arranging loans under government and NGO schemes are some of the allurements they use for converting the innocents. In order to humiliate the Hindus, neo converts are made to organise the Bible conventions and denigrade and mock Hindu gods. In total violation of VISA restrictions foreign missionaries come to Kerala as tourists and address Bible conventions, where they insult Hindu gods. This has led to serious communal problem in several places. Two years back an American evangelist, Cooper was beaten blue and black by the Hindus in rural Thiruvananthapuram when he insulted Hindu gods. The pseudo-secular congress government arrested local RSS Cadres and let the evangelist go scot free. Similarly a month back another U.S. evangelist David Terrell, was prevented from addressing a bible convention by RSS-VHP cadres and forced to go back home.
Now in a landmark judgement Justice K. Padmanabhan Nair of Kerala High Court has ordered the state government to constitute a Special Investigation Team (SIT) probe into various charges including sexual exploitation of men, women, rapes and murders at Divine Retreat Centre, Muringoor, Irinjalakuda, in Thrissur district. The Justice has ordered that the SIT should be constituted in two weeks and that foreign exchange violations and all unnatural deaths that took place around that area during the past two years should be probed.
The judgement was based on a letter which a woman lodged at Kozhikode Jail had sent to the High Court. In it she had stated that she was raped by a Christian priest at the centre and when she protested, a case of theft was lodged against her and she was jailed. Her case of rape was not even registered due to the powerful influence, the centre has with politicians and officials. She had also alleged that in the past two years several dead bodies were found on the railway tracks and on the national highway near the centre and that the deaths were all un-natural. She also had stated that most of these bodies were buried in public grounds and when the keeper of the public burial ground objected to bringing dead bodies with injuries, he was found dead in mysterious circumstances. She had stated that she is witness to several women being sexually exploited and raped.

The court ordered the state government to post an IPS official of the rank of IG to head the SIT since several IAS, IPS and political leaders were associated with the centre. The court also ordered the SIT to use hi-tech methods like polygraph test, brain mapping and DNA finger printing in the probe. It finally ordered preliminary report within a month.
This judgement is a severe blow to the Muringoor centre which has converted that area into a huge township with hundreds of high-rise buildings etc. Lakhs of people visit the centre and such is the political clout that it has built a railway station and trains are made to stop there. For quite time Hindu organisations and magazines like ‘Crime’ have been highlighting the murky activities going on in this centre in the name of ‘Dhyanam’.

Let us hope that this landmark judgment will bring out truth going on in these nefarious centres in the name of Christianity.

Dear Preetha,
Hi! Praise God! I’ve been wanting to write to you for sometime, but we’ve been sooo tied up with pgms. How are you? How is everything at home? I hope ****’s mother is recovering. I am praying for you. Things did turn sour, I myself was quite surprised, but I hope all the expenses will be recovered and everything will be in good shape. You have always been very frank with me…, in your queries and otherwise, and I have only spoken what I was inspired to. If anything that I had said in order to help you spiritually or emotionally has upset you, I am sorry about it. But if anyone asks me I will only speak what the Lord asks me to. You know that.
How is your health? I pray that there will be good news soon.
Children are a gift from God. He will keep them safe and give them to us at the right time…
Do keep in touch. Convey my regards to ****, Aunty and Uncle.
That’s all for now. Bye and God bless.

Is JesusAndYou.com Abey & Swapna website? (0) 

Monday, April 17, 2006, 04:48 PM – The Truth

I belive that you helped Abey and Swapna by creating a site for them, which they have published in all their prayer retreats. – Ruben Gerad Mathew, May 2002

They don’t have a website yet, but I will be creating one for them very soon, and it may be online within next two weeks, for I work for all Divine’s Websites. – Ruben Gerad Mathew, May 2002

It was a new shop and so I was browsing around after picking out the book when my eyes fell upon Abey and Swapna’s CD Anoint Me. I normally do not listen to that type of music & I moved on. However, I felt an urge to buy that CD and somehow I kept coming back to it. I bought the album with the intention of encouraging their ministry and sowing into it.A week went by before I decided to check out the website URL given at the back of the CD. While going through the site, once again the Lord told me to encourage them. So I wrote a few words to Abey and Swapna, and in a couple of days, I got a reply from the producer of the album. John Kodiyil, April 2003

And he was realising the sales proceeds of the album during that tour, even the sales on his website which he asked us to make as our official website. – Swapna Abraham, October 2005

He used to ask us to print his website details on all our cd labels and at that time he was putting news about us on that site and people thought it was our site – Abey Kalisseril, April 2006


The allegation surrounds a website called JesusAndYou.com (http://www.JesusAndYou.com). The alleging parties are Abey Kallisseril and Swapna Abraham. What they claim is that, we started an official website for them called JesusAndYou.com, they promoted the website as theirs, so their fans wrote to us believing JesusAndYou.com is Abey & Swapna website. Adding some seriousness to their allegation, we contated their fans on behalf of them, we made money by selling their music CDs to their fans, received cheques and deposited in our bank accounts and we became rich. Their webmaster Ruben Gerad Mathew – also a webmaster of Divine Retreat Centre – demanded us to hand over the JeusAndYou.com FTP information to him. Ruben Gerad Mathew wanted to confirm we are not “exploiting” the Catholic Charismatics like Abey & Swapna, and the institution Divine Retreat Centre. We did not abide to Ruben Gerad Mathew’s demand, so we are “fraud” in their terms. To substantiate their claim, John Kodiyil has his testimony on how did he come to know us. John Kodiyil is stating he wrote to Abey & Swapna, but the “producer” of the album – they are us – wrote to him by acting like Abey & Swapna representitives.
Let us address this allegation. There are two versions of the album ‘Anoint Me’ were sold in India. One was distributed by Adonai Musics – the distributing company of Abey Kalisseril and Swapna Abraham – and the other one was distributed by Divine Retreat Centre. At the back of the CD, you will see the website name www.JesusAndYou.com. In addition to this website name, you will see few email address abey@jesusandyou.com, anointme@jesusandyou.com. John Kodiyil says he wrote to Abey & Swapna through the website URL JesusAndYou.com which is on the back cover of the CD. Here are some facts. The email address abey@jesusandyou.com was never published on the website JesusAndYou.com, neither any of the personal email address of Abey & Swapna. On the contact page on the website, you will never see anything stated like the visitors are writing to Abey & Swapna.
If at all an email address abey@jesusandyou.com existed on the domain YouMeAndJesus.com, we never accessed that email address. To make it more clear, we did not login to that account or accessed anyone’s email. There are hundreds of users who are accessing JesusAndYou.com email service even now. We don’t login to their account or access their personal information – however we’ll take action against who abuse the email service. By taking John Kodiyil’s testimony, he has written to the online form on the website JesusAndYou.com. The online form sends the email to the email address product_support@jesusandyou.com only. If John wanted to write to Abey & Swapna, it wound not have been more easy to write to abey@jesusandyou.com which was on the cover, rather than on an online form on a website. If any of you have bought that album – irrespective of the two different versions, read carefully what is written inside the cover. It is clearly stated that the producer, the person who wrote the songs is willing to listen from the listeners – not Abey & Swapna.

John Kodiyil’s story on a public free website as this one like homestead is hard to sell except to guys having half brain. By the way, Bro.John Kodiyil revamped the homestead website couple of times with his own new stories. The different stories he put out on homestead within a period of 3 – 4 years strongly prove he is a man of confusion. He has two intentions out of that website – to drive traffic to his website timbrels.org – which is not in existance anymore. Secondly he wanted to tell couple of people to substantiate Abey Kallisseril and Swapna Abraham’s claim is right – that is JesusAndYou.com is Abey & Swapna website. How can anyone give credit to some information on a free website where he does not have any expense of hosting; he won’t probably write this on his own website. We read his spiritual spice – to help Abey & Swapna mission. But the fact is, this “jobless” guy wanted to bring in some projects to his new studio – he knows dollars have more values than rupees. We reviewed the email John Kodiyil claims he wrote to Abey & Swapna, to your surprise, the email was never addressed to Abey & Swapna.

A third person like Ruben Gerad Mathew contacting us to transfer the domain JesusAndYou.com to him for Abey & Swapna raises some suspicion. He did not reveal his address, and wanted our bank details which raised more suspicion. Hacking our Internet accounts after he did not receive any reply from us! Oh Boy, we are talking of a predator. If you have gone through this guy’s emails, you will see how he has so much backup from Divine Retreat Centre, and taking credit of their influence with various India Government agencies. Abey Kallisseril and Swapna Abraham claim that we made an official website for them, and if that is true, how many lines of an email will cost them to write to us to transfer the FTP information of JesusAndYou.com to Ruben Gerad Mathew. Neither Abey Kalisseril nor Swapna Abraham did that – they never wrote to us claiming it is their website, and need to be transferred to Ruben Gerad Mathew. They made the same attempt through another friend of ours before trying with Ruben Gerad Mathew.
Ruben Gerad Mathew in his email claims that there is no website for Abey & Swapna. This is a lie that Divine Retreat Centre, Ruben Gerad Mathew, Swapna Abraham and Abey Kallisseril cooked up. Abey & Swapna had their own website www.abeyandswapna.com from the year 2000. A copy of their website as it existed in July 2001 is at the end of this blog. Look at the back of their CD covers, you will see the website www.abeyandswapna.com.

The demanding letter from Ruben Gerad Mathew – claiming he is the webmaster of Divine Retreat Centre, and he wants the JesusAndYou.com FTP information from us did not surprise us at all. This plot – between him, Abey Kalisseril, Swapna Abraham and Divine Retreat Centre – was in the cooking pot for some time at least from September 2001. You may be asking a question yourself why they alleage we stole their website JesusAndYou.com?
Is www.abeyandswapna.com or jesusandyou.com Abey & Swapna’s official website? How many checks/cheques we received from Abey & Swapna’s fans, and where did we deposit that amount? Why did Divine Retreat Centre want to sabotage a non-Catholic ministry?
Continue reading our blog. We’ll reveal more truth. If you have a specific question, post the question in the discussion forum, we’ll answer you

Dear Mr. Varghese,
I would like to state again that I have no contact with Abey or Abey’s father, and I have no contact with Abey’s father, nor have I met him. Abey’s father was “contacted” by Abey. He sent me an email yesterday telling me to step out of this becuase he will personally deal this problem. I cannot continue when Abey chetan tells me not to proceed. I would have paid you the 5 lakh if I had a job! Frankly, the only reason I contacted you was becuase you had taken Abey and Swapna’s site www.jesusandyou.com. But now I have created a secondary site www.abeyandswapna.com. So I have much more work to do there. And what is written about you H1 is what I herad, not what I know, almost everyone goes out of India with H1. BTW the site has not yet been opened for business, and the number of visitors so far is less than 10-25 according to weblog reports. That is me using ftp to upload the different stuff, and I have no idea who gave you information on this site. Moreover the details put in about you was not deflamatory but only facts as I was told to put in by Abey, but the very same week I had it removed, because Abey told me to do so over the phone. I don’t know if you have a leg, or a broken leg, I have never seen you. I don’t know you wife, and I don’t know who is abraham46 as mentioned. You have a lot of wrong conclusions. I was paid to work on www.abeyandswapna.com and that is all I did. You don’t have to raise a storm for there is more damages you caused me by haking into my hotmail, and yahoo accounts not to mention alibaba. That was my livelyhood, and you ruined it. But I have not said a word so far, I did nothing to harm your livelyhood. I don’t know what will happen in this crusade, but even if I have been asked to step out, I need back my site at yahoo and hotmail. Atleast once you have some amicable settlement. Don’t hold back my mail, and alibaba, as I need it for my work.
Regards,
Ruben.


Physical abuse and other atrocities by Abey Kalisseril (0)

Dear Uncle Pappi,
Thanks….
As expected, he did not sign the second time. He being the first petitioner for divorce thru mutual consent, himself withdrew the petition because ‘he thought about the future of the children during the 6 months of reflection!!! This leaves me suspended for life unless I file…
And ever since then, since the truce period is over, he has been making life so hard for me in every possible way. First of all he keeps telling me that I am his wife (which is true), that the legal separation which I secured last year for my protection from more physical abuse and other atrocities… has also now become void, that I will get back to him, that I will have to get back to him, that if I don’t no one will accept my ministry or listen to what I sing or preach… These things he mails me or tells me when I called a couple of times to find out about what needs to be done about the children’s ten day break, since there was no confirmation from him. Finallly he says he’s taking them for all ten days… I cannot ask for them for half of the time since I got them for my share of the summer holidays and if they spent his share with his parents since he was out of the country, it is not his fault. So, I give in… Then he tells me to pick them from school and drop them at Kottayam and after the ten days are over to pick them from there and have them dropped back in school!!! I felt that beyond being just unreasonable and disagreed, but since no one came to pick them up on the closing day, I picked them up. Then he threatens my caretaker to bring them to Kottayam by bus (he himself has never travelled by bus). Without booking and much to the children’s disappointment, very unwillingly I had to send them. The second half of the journey was very traumatic, my daughter later mailed me. The very next day she had a sever stomach pain and had to be operated for appendicitis. What if the pain happened during the journey!!! God protected them… Anyway, post operation, I went to see her, spent some time with her in the hospital after which his dad confronted my parents with this and that. We left.
In the meantime, I have shifted from the rented house in Ooty to the new house there. There is still a lot of work to be done and I am doing it one by one according to what I get from here and there.
Abey has been telling everyone about his new born again experience, a new repentance and about his intention of getting reconciled with me and that I am not co operating but holding on to my decision. Only I know what’s the intention behind it. It is hard to convince people.

Revenue from the album hasn’t been showing up yet. I know it will take its own time. But I had a very edifying mission in Malaysia, although it was small. Am going to Dar es Salaam, Africa on the 20th. Please pray that all will be well.
That’s a little of what has been happening, since you already know a lot. Let us kep praying for each other. God will help me, He has to do it, if not I will be totally helpless.
Anyways Uncle, it is a blessing to have people like you even ask me how I am. Thank you very much. God bless you and your family. Let me know if you need my help for anything.
Warm regards,
Swapna

 

Thousands back Catholic center targeted by Hindu radicals (0)

People Rally around Catholic Retreat Center As Hindu Radicals Press For Its Closure   
By Jeemon Jacob April 19, 2006

MURINGOOR, India (UCAN) — Thousands of people including Hindus have backed a Catholic retreat center in southern India after a Hindu front demanded its closure.   
Posters put up by right-wing Hindu organizations in various places of Kerala state accuse Divine Retreat Centre of several transgressions. The groups have also held street corner meetings to condemn the Catholic center’s alleged large-scale conversion of Hindus.   
The Vincentian Congregation manages the center at Muringoor, a village in central Kerala, about 2,900 kilometers south of New Delhi. According to its director, Father George Panackal, it is the largest retreat center in the world. It conducts weekly retreats in six Indian languages and English throughout the year, and has served more than 10 million people from all over the world since 1990.   
Hindu radicals have opposed the Catholic center since its beginning, but they stepped up their opposition after March 10, when the Kerala High Court ordered an investigation into its activities. The Hindu groups have banded under Hindu Aikya Vedi (HAV, Hindu united front), which has the backing of the Bharatiya Janata Party (Indian people’s party), the main federal opposition party.   
“We have demanded (the center’s) closure,” HAV organizing secretary Kummanam Rajasekharan told UCA News April 11. He alleged the court ordered the probe after it found prima facie evidence against the center.   
“Our investigations have revealed that the Divine center is involved in large-scale religious conversions,” Rajasekharan added. Other allegations against the center, he added, include murder and money laundering. He said his front would continue the campaign against the retreat center until it folds up.
Father Panackal says the controversies have not affected the center’s credibility. Soon after the news of the probe spread, thousands of people visited the center to offer prayers, he said. People from various religions have “pledged their support to us,” the priest told UCA News. “I feel happy about it,” he added.   
However, the HAV campaign and the court order have hurt people at the center, many of them Hindus. Santosh Kumar, who now preaches at the center, views the developments as attempts to damage the center’s reputation. “But we believe in God and his wisdom,” the 32-year-old Hindu told UCA News.   
Kumar, who moved to the center in January, said he has not “come across any illegal activity here.” He said he first came to the center in 2003 after his business suffered losses. After a weeklong retreat he decided to dedicate his life to preaching the Gospel at the center.   
“Though I’m a Hindu by birth, today I believe in Christ and pray everyday,” said Kumar, who claims he has regained all that he had lost. He currently runs a hair salon at the center and preaches whenever he finds time.   
Another Hindu “deeply pained by the allegations” against the Catholic center is Shyla, a woman living with HIV. She told UCA News she came to the center when she “lost all hope in life,” as nobody was willing to help her family after news spread that her husband had tested positive for the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), which usually leads to AIDS. “But Divine Retreat Center offered us a comfortable stay and care,” continued the woman, who now lives at St. Vincent Home, which is attached to the retreat center.   
Her husband and daughter also are among the 100 people with HIV at the home. “The priests and nuns here are doing a great service. It’s unfortunate that they have become the subject of wild allegations,” Shyla said.   
Sudheer Antony, a Hindu convert to Catholicism, sees the controversy as the “handiwork” of agents of darkness. He said he came to the center “voluntarily” and became a Catholic when he experienced God there. “I want to tell others what I have experienced,” he added, explaining his reason for staying at the center. He dismissed the HAV protests as “ill-motivated campaigns” and said God will protect the center from forces that want to destroy it.   
Margaret John, 48, who lives in a house for poor people located in the center complex, said the allegations have “shocked” the people who depend on the retreat center. She said the center offered her and two daughters shelter when her mentally ill husband disappeared a year ago. She also said she has no place to go if the center is closed.

You have no idea of what you are talking about with relevance to what has happened and what is happening now, nor have you truly seen the vindication of God. I am talking about my life.
May God bless you and your family. May He give you your heart’s desire, and even more, according to His riches in Christ Jesus. You and Preetha are in my prayers everyday. From your previous mail, I have seen the acclaim that you have received from the press and the public in the US. It is truly commendable. Keep the faith and keep up the good work.

Lord manifest at Divine Retreat Centre, but not in any other Indian Protestant Churches? (0) 

Friday, April 28, 2006, 03:31 AM – John Kodiyil

john kodiyil: it got there in the form of Roman Catholisism
john kodiyil: pardon my spelling
hendermikl: okay
john kodiyil: then the protestant movement began
john kodiyil: you know about all that right?
hendermikl: you are a historian
john kodiyil: Did you know about all that, because I am covering many centuries
hendermikl: Not all. Thank you for all the info.
john kodiyil: Yikes
john kodiyil: then you better read up
hendermikl: This is how we learn the history.
hendermikl: read up where?
hendermikl: internet?
john kodiyil: so while all this was going on in Europe, Christianity was going on in India mostly unaware of what was happening, but most importantly, it was not under Rome
john kodiyil: got it so far?
hendermikl: okay
hendermikl: yeah
hendermikl: continue
john kodiyil: so when the white folks came
hendermikl: to India?
john kodiyil: yeah, we were ruled by the British
hendermikl: okay
john kodiyil: and the dutch before that
hendermikl: I know India was a colony.
john kodiyil: yup
john kodiyil: so when they came
john kodiyil: they were surprized to see Christians
hendermikl: okay
hendermikl: You mean in India or in your state?
john kodiyil: My state
john kodiyil: sorry
hendermikl: okay
hendermikl: did you say Kerala your state before?
john kodiyil: Yes
hendermikl: okay
john kodiyil: I own it 🙂
john kodiyil: for the Lord
hendermikl: 😀
john kodiyil: anywat
john kodiyil: anyway
john kodiyil: the missionaries that came with the white folk started churches
john kodiyil: these churches were under Rome
hendermikl: okay
john kodiyil: and when the asked the old christians here to be subjected to rome, they refused, stating that they were christians before Rome was
hendermikl: okay
john kodiyil: but some of them agreed to come under Rome, they are called Syrian Catholics, the rest dont report to the pope, the old christians that were here I mean
hendermikl: okay
john kodiyil: and as time went on
hendermikl: okay
john kodiyil: there were splits among them
john kodiyil: like marthoma
john kodiyil: jacobite
hendermikl: you mean fights?
john kodiyil: yeah
john kodiyil: Yes
john kodiyil: ‘Orthodox’ etc
hendermikl: did they split from Catholics
hendermikl: orthodox I have seen here
hendermikl: greek orthodox
john kodiyil: no from the original people who were converted by Thomas
hendermikl: okay
john kodiyil: Naa, this is different,
john kodiyil: not the same orthodox
john kodiyil: Now there are many denominations
john kodiyil: Pentecostal, Bretheren (like traditional baptist), etc
hendermikl: do they worship virgin mary?
hendermikl: I mean catholics in your state.
john kodiyil: Yes, but let me conclude
hendermikl: okay
john kodiyil: so in short Mar Thoma means St. Thomas in Malayalam, a language spoken in Southwest India. The church traces its origins to the apostle who church tradition says took a missionary trip to the region in A.D. 52 and converted Jews and Hindus living in what is now the state of Kerala. Christians make up only 2.4 percent of India’s population of one billion, but more than 20 percent of the population of Kerala.
hendermikl: okay
john kodiyil: The church, officially known as the Malankara Mar Thoma Syrian Church, has about one million followers internationally and 30,000 in the United States. The national church is headed by Bishop Euyakim Mar Coorilos; the international church by Metropolitan Philipose Mar Chrysostom.
hendermikl: okay
hendermikl: Just wait.
hendermikl: Let me take some notes here.
hendermikl: brb
hendermikl: back
john kodiyil: This is the marthoma web http://www.marthomasyrianchurch.org/

hendermikl: okay
hendermikl: When I searched for kerala I got this site http://www.power2006.org/

john kodiyil: http://syriacchristianity.org/ another denomination
hendermikl: are they marthoma or catholics?
hendermikl: power2006
john kodiyil: let me see
hendermikl: they are catholic. they mentioned pope on the site
john kodiyil: ok
john kodiyil: Yes, this is a catholic institution: Divine Youth, Divine Retreat Center, Muringoor P.O., Chalakudy 680316, Kerala, INDIA
john kodiyil: From under the site
john kodiyil: sorry
hendermikl: let me see
john kodiyil: bottom of the page
john kodiyil: http://www.drcm.net/power2006/about_us.htm

hendermikl: are they big?
john kodiyil: yeah
hendermikl: are they nominal?
hendermikl: I mean nominal Christians
john kodiyil: Define Nominal
hendermikl: you told me nominal.
hendermikl: “but now, it is mainly focused on traditions, and so much of Hindu traditions have gotten into the church that it is almost pagan. More importantly, the power of the risen Lord is not manifested”
john kodiyil: Yes, but what do you mean by Nominal. I did not use that word
john kodiyil: what are the implications in your usage of the word?
hendermikl: whatever you meant of marthoma
hendermikl: I may be using the wrong word
hendermikl: I meant people like Marthoma not full gospel like you.
john kodiyil: yeah, but as you know
john kodiyil: the Charimatic movement, since the 60’s across the world, had brought the power of the Lord in the Catholic church
john kodiyil: and this center is a result of that in Kerala
hendermikl: okay
john kodiyil: Charismatic
john kodiyil: One thing, I never judge anyone
john kodiyil: to me Christianity is practical
john kodiyil: wait
hendermikl: okay
hendermikl: you should judge
john kodiyil: if I see a blind man, I pray, lay my hand on him if need be, but the idea is that I send him home healed, this is what Jesus had done
hendermikl: then only you can say you are right.
john kodiyil: so all talk and all costume and no power does not cut it with me
hendermikl: so lord is not manifested in marthoma church?
john kodiyil: I dont know, but from the people I met who are in my church, they say no
john kodiyil: who were originally marthoma
hendermikl: the lord manifest in catholic charismatic places
hendermikl: you said marthoma came from thomas
john kodiyil: yes
john kodiyil: so?
hendermikl: what is the difference between charismatic catholic
hendermikl: and catholic in india
john kodiyil: there is none
hendermikl: is lord manifested in catholic churches?
john kodiyil: That is what the Charismatic movement was all about, in the 60’s started in the US, you should know about it
john kodiyil: Dont your elders teach you these things?
john kodiyil: the moves of God in the past??
hendermikl: brb
hendermikl: I’m little confused.
hendermikl: Do you mean Lord Jesus is manifested in full gospel and charismatic places?
hendermikl: No one else have Jesus at all?
john kodiyil: What are you talking about? I never marginalised Jesus. Jesus came to me when I was a muslime. You seem to want to put words into my mouth. Reminds me of someone very unpleasant that I used to know
hendermikl: I’m more like debating
hendermikl: So you have to take in that sense
john kodiyil: I dont want a debate, find someone else for that
john kodiyil: I actually have work to do, but am putting it off to chat with you
john kodiyil: See, this is what I do
hendermikl: Are you saying I have to simply believe whatever you state.
john kodiyil: no
hendermikl: then you have to clarify
john kodiyil: what did I state?
hendermikl: otherwise I’m confused
hendermikl: you said Lord is not manifested in Marthoma church
hendermikl: they you said you don’t know that personally
hendermikl: your friends told you.
john kodiyil: Yes
hendermikl: then you said lord is manifested in catholic churches
john kodiyil: not friends
john kodiyil: church members, pastors etc
hendermikl: I’m confused
hendermikl: after reading this news
hendermikl: http://www.thehindu.com/2006/03/11/stories/2006031115160400.htm

john kodiyil: I can give you a theology lesson through chat.
hendermikl: do you charge?
john kodiyil: Sorry
john kodiyil: I meant to say I can’t
john kodiyil: it was a typo
john kodiyil: P
hendermikl: have you read the news about Divine Retreat Center you just said Lord is manifested.
hendermikl: I’m totally lost
hendermikl: what do you really mean by Lord is manifested?
hendermikl: Do you mean talking in tounges?
john kodiyil: What Isaid was that the Charimatic movement, since the 60’s across the world, had brought the power of the Lord in the Catholic church and that center was the result of that in Kerala.
john kodiyil: so your answer lies in finding out what Charismatic movement was all about
hendermikl: please clarify me what is manifestation
john kodiyil: it did not start in India
hendermikl: of the lord
john kodiyil: tongues, healing, miracles, all resulting in changed lives
john kodiyil: but somehow they did not leave the pagan roots
john kodiyil: still worships idols etc
john kodiyil: I know that is wrong
hendermikl: you mean statues of mary
john kodiyil: And other people
hendermikl: What about Divine Retreat Center
john kodiyil: same
hendermikl: do they worship idols
john kodiyil: yes
john kodiyil: big ones
john kodiyil: I’d been there once
john kodiyil: for a recording
john kodiyil: long time ago
john kodiyil: in their studio
hendermikl: at Divine Retreat Center?
john kodiyil: yes
hendermikl: do you think Lord is manifested there?
john kodiyil: See
hendermikl: Are they under the leadership of Rome or within your state only?
john kodiyil: people have found Jesus and many healing have taken place there, but when I look at the mary worship etc, I know that is wrong,
john kodiyil: They are under Rome
hendermikl: So what is the truth?
john kodiyil: I am currently idle.
john kodiyil: This is what I think
john kodiyil: but it is my opinion
hendermikl: Is the healing miracles a manifestation of Jesus?
john kodiyil: let me use my example
hendermikl: okay
john kodiyil: When Jesus appeared to me, that resulted in a relationship with him
john kodiyil: ok?
hendermikl: okay
john kodiyil: but I will not condemn any healing done in the name of Jesus, the bible tells me not to
hendermikl: okay
hendermikl: whats the verse for that?
john kodiyil: hang on
john kodiyil: Dd you have your Bible with you?
hendermikl: yeah
john kodiyil: Go to Luke 9
hendermikl: wait
hendermikl: okay
hendermikl: Mine is New International Version. Is that okay
john kodiyil: no probs
john kodiyil: goto verse 49 and 50
hendermikl: wait
hendermikl: I’m reading wait.
hendermikl: okay
hendermikl: please explain
john kodiyil: now read Mark 9:38-39
john kodiyil: sorry
john kodiyil: Mark 9:38- 40
hendermikl: okay
hendermikl: please explain
john kodiyil: is it not clear?
hendermikl: what about this verse:
hendermikl: 21″Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’ 23Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’
john kodiyil: yeah, so?
hendermikl: It is important
john kodiyil: But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man which shall do a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me.
john kodiyil: Forbiding is done on earth right?
john kodiyil: yes or no?
hendermikl: Can you find someone anyone speaking evil against Jesus these days?
john kodiyil: answer my question and you will see where I stand on the issue
hendermikl: what do you mean by forbiding?
john kodiyil: What does the word Forbid mean?
hendermikl: in your words
john kodiyil: just what it means in English, now my question is this, is that action done by us or God?
john kodiyil: as per Jesus’ instruction
hendermikl: I did not get it
john kodiyil: who is Jesus telling that to?
hendermikl: disciples, right/
john kodiyil: yes
hendermikl: about the man.
hendermikl: whos that “man”?
john kodiyil: Dont jump the gun, bro.
So that means, he is talking about things we can do on earth
hendermikl: so we are three people in the story
hendermikl: wait brother
hendermikl: jesus
hendermikl: disciple
hendermikl: and a man
hendermikl: disciple we all know
hendermikl: we know jesus
hendermikl: whos this “man”
john kodiyil: just any man
hendermikl: not so
john kodiyil: read it up
hendermikl: that “man”
john kodiyil: someone who is not part of the group
hendermikl: disciples did not know but Jesus knew
hendermikl: thats why Jesus said
john kodiyil: yes, but that is your insight, but not explicitly written, but generically Jesus knows all men
hendermikl: let him do miracles
hendermikl: but the people Jesus did not know and doing miracles in Jesus name, Jesus said:
hendermikl: 21″Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’ 23Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’
john kodiyil: Bro what I am trying to show you is this
john kodiyil: Forbidding and not forbidding, whatever the case may be, it done on earth by us
hendermikl: Brother it is not the insight
hendermikl: it is a revelation
hendermikl: whom Jesus know personally
hendermikl: and whom he does not
hendermikl: You may know him
john kodiyil: by getting into heaven in God’s business
hendermikl: but he may not know you
john kodiyil: that is not biblical
john kodiyil: whatyou just said
john kodiyil: anyway
hendermikl: it is biblical
john kodiyil: no pont
john kodiyil: I dont have time for this
hendermikl: thats why I showed the verse
john kodiyil: you jump from point to point
john kodiyil: not in this context
hendermikl: there is a lot of people who are in the world says
john kodiyil: Yeah
hendermikl: I know Jesus
john kodiyil: but that is God’s business
hendermikl: but Jesus does not know him because
john kodiyil: not for us to judge
hendermikl: the person is not doing God’s will
john kodiyil: not for us to judge but for us to do is not forbid
john kodiyil: that is all
hendermikl: In your words it may be a “posing as christian”
hendermikl: so there is posing
hendermikl: they are not real
john kodiyil: no, I did not use that in this context
hendermikl: Brother, pray about it
john kodiyil: we are talking about the healings that hapeen in Divine
hendermikl: ask God, do you really know me?
john kodiyil: What I am saying is that I dont judge
hendermikl: am I doing your will?
hendermikl: or am I speaking of miracles, manifestations?
john kodiyil: stop preaching to me bro
hendermikl: I’m not preaching to you
john kodiyil: anyway, I need to vacate the room, the maid needs to come and clean
hendermikl: I’m talking in a general sense
john kodiyil: whatever
hendermikl: I did not preach to you.
hendermikl: I know you are a Christian
john kodiyil: whatever
hendermikl: a full gospel
john kodiyil: I need to vacate the room, the maid needs to come and clean
hendermikl: but I posed that question to myself and each and every person
hendermikl: bwy
john kodiyil: that is your thing
john kodiyil: need not be valid
john kodiyil: in every case
hendermikl: thats right
john kodiyil: what is bwy
hendermikl: sorry
hendermikl: typo
john kodiyil: oh ok bye
john kodiyil: P
john kodiyil: so I’ll see you later
john kodiyil: gotta go

I do not need counseling from you because of my Character. (0) 

Friday, April 28, 2006, 03:11 AM – John Kodiyil

john kodiyil (4/21/2006 9:39:51 PM): Plus, what happened to me in 2003 is really not any of your concern. I do not need counseling from you nor do I need to discuss it with you. I will not raise my voice or point my fingers at anyone. I’d submitted the matter to my church pastor and elders and I’ve dealt with it. I have forgiven, and the Lord will deal with the rest. So let us put that aside ok bro?
john kodiyil (4/21/2006 9:41:30 PM): Well, we were not a ‘band’ for long, but only for some months in 2003. When I wrote that in the site, it looked like a good begening. Actually the people in the band were not originally christians. They were secular professional musicians I brought to the Lord, not through words, but through my character, work, behaviour and attitude, and they accepted Jesus. They were accomplished professional musicians and they did not want to leave that. They got really pissed off at what happened to me because of people pretending to be Christians. As I put my studio on hold, we parted ways as a band.

I’m in a new generation Exodus, not in Joshua Generation anymore. (0)

hendermikl: why your band wanted to pursue secular music?
hendermikl: is it because they could not make a living out of singing christian songs/
hendermikl: Bud and I gonna pray about it and send you an email.
hendermikl: Bye
john kodiyil (4/21/2006 9:39:51 PM): Plus, what happened to me in 2003 is really not any of your concern. I do not need counseling from you nor do I need to discuss it with you. I will not raise my voice or point my fingers at anyone. I’d submitted the matter to my church pastor and elders and I’ve dealt with it. I have forgiven, and the Lord will deal with the rest. So let us put that aside ok bro?
john kodiyil (4/21/2006 9:41:30 PM): Well, we were not a ‘band’ for long, but only for some months in 2003. When I wrote that in the site, it looked like a good begening. Actually the people in the band were not originally christians. They were secular professional musicians I brought to the Lord, not through words, but through my character, work, behaviour and attitude, and they accepted Jesus. They were accomplished professional musicians and they did not want to leave that. They got really pissed off at what happened to me because of people pretending to be Christians. As I put my studio on hold, we parted ways as a band.

Friday, April 28, 2006, 03:14 AM – John Kodiyil

john kodiyil: Hi
john kodiyil: What do you think of Creed?
hendermikl: brb
hendermikl: Today our bible study was on religion.
hendermikl: Creed?
john kodiyil: the band, were they popular?
hendermikl: I don’t know.
hendermikl: Where did you hear them?
hendermikl: online?
john kodiyil: You have no heard of Creed?
john kodiyil: not heard
hendermikl: I’m not into secular music.
hendermikl: I mean non-christian
john kodiyil: Neither am I, but they were one of the most popular bands
hendermikl: Are they your friends/
john kodiyil: no
hendermikl: okay
john kodiyil: What do you teach?
hendermikl: Our bible study was on religion today.
hendermikl: I teach economics.
hendermikl: In bible study, normally world topics
john kodiyil: ok
hendermikl: We discussed about Hindu, Islam etc…
john kodiyil: Did you get my offline messages?
hendermikl: No
john kodiyil: hmmm
john kodiyil: let me check history, if it is there, I will paste it again
hendermikl: okay
hendermikl: One of my friend asked about St.Thomas who came to India.
hendermikl: which year he came to India
john kodiyil: This is Thomas also known as dydymus
hendermikl: did he found catholism or marthoma?
hendermikl: I mean founded
john kodiyil: some years after Christ died, but do you know why he came?
hendermikl: no.
john kodiyil: He came to Kerala, my state
hendermikl: all my friends surprised
hendermikl: your state?
john kodiyil: because there was a thriving Jewish community here
john kodiyil: Yeah
john kodiyil: Well I dont own it, 🙂
hendermikl: okay
hendermikl: then what happened
john kodiyil: Hang on, let me see if I can get a link for you to read
hendermikl: okay
john kodiyil: http://www.indianembassy.org/new/NewDelhiPressFile/kerala_christianity.html

hendermikl: wait
hendermikl: did thomas establish marthoma, am i right?
john kodiyil: Yes
john kodiyil: I am trying to find you a link
hendermikl: I did not understand why then you said they are nominal Christians?
hendermikl: are they not christians?
hendermikl: I mean real christians?
john kodiyil: Well it is like this
john kodiyil: Thomas came 2000 years ago
john kodiyil: and he moved as the apostles did
hendermikl: okay
john kodiyil: and there was the resuruction power of Jesus flowing out into the community from the church
hendermikl: okay
john kodiyil: but now, it is mainly focused on traditions, and so much of Hindu traditions have gotten into the church that it is almost pagan. More importantly, the power of the risen Lord is not manifested
hendermikl: so do you mean Marthoma believers won’t go to Heaven?
john kodiyil: DidI say that?
hendermikl: they what do you mean by nominal?
hendermikl: It was a debate today.
hendermikl: in our bible study
hendermikl: how are you different from marthoma followers.
john kodiyil: Let me ask you something
hendermikl: sure
john kodiyil: if you were born in a Garage, will that make you an automobile?
hendermikl: no.
john kodiyil: huh?
hendermikl: that means Marthoma people are not christians according to your anology.
hendermikl: sorry analogy.
hendermikl: I got it.
john kodiyil: No, that is not what I am saying. So if you are born into a CHristian family, will you automatically become a Christian????
hendermikl: that’s a good question.
john kodiyil: What does Romans say?
hendermikl: Can you tell me please?
john kodiyil: Let me open the scriptures
hendermikl: So what you are saying is that if you are born into a Marthoma family, you are not a Christian.
john kodiyil: I am not sayign anything, I go by what the bible says
hendermikl: what about catholics?
hendermikl: are there a lot of Catholics in your state/
john kodiyil: many
john kodiyil: who were called Christians in the bible
john kodiyil: ??
john kodiyil: The Disciples Were First Called Christians (Acts 11:19-26)
hendermikl: is there pilgrimage places in India for Catholics?
john kodiyil: man, for an American, you sound like a typical mallu
hendermikl: what?
hendermikl: mallu?
john kodiyil: A Malayalee, a person who speaks malayalam, the language of kerala.
hendermikl: like yankee
john kodiyil: yeah
hendermikl: okay
hendermikl: I was confused first
hendermikl: How is Catholics in India? Are they like Marthoma?
john kodiyil: Romans 10: 9 onwards says this”That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.” What do you think of that?
hendermikl: you are right.
hendermikl: What is the percentage of Christians in India?
john kodiyil: No not all, there are two main division, the people who became Christians through thomas, and secondly the people who became christians later when the brits and the dutch invaded us
hendermikl: how did catholism reached India?
john kodiyil: the people who became Christians through thomas were Hindus of High Caste, but the other converts were the lower classes
hendermikl: okay
john kodiyil: There is a branch of Catholics who were converted by Thomas
hendermikl: who are “other converts”?
john kodiyil: called Syrian Catholics
hendermikl: okay
john kodiyil: other converts? people who got converted later by the british
john kodiyil: wait
hendermikl: So did Thomas establish both Marthoma and catholism
john kodiyil: just listen
hendermikl: okay
john kodiyil: There was no “catholic” church as such anywhere when Thomas came
hendermikl: okay
john kodiyil: The name was formed many 100s of years later
hendermikl: okay
john kodiyil: but
john kodiyil: there were Christians in Kerala
hendermikl: okay
john kodiyil: I am currently idle.
john kodiyil: so when Christianity reached Europe

john kodiyil: Then send me an email asking for the terms.
hendermikl: I did not get it
john kodiyil: I am currently idle.
hendermikl: why I have to send an email?
hendermikl: I have to ask Bud to do it
john kodiyil: Send me an email, to make it official. I dont initiate business through Chat
john kodiyil: Yeah, do that then
hendermikl: What will happen if you don’t finish the project
hendermikl: Is there a money back policy?

john kodiyil: FOr you maybe, but I dont do business that way.
hendermikl: I did not get it
hendermikl: You mean we will get the money if you don’t finish the project.
john kodiyil: you said “[18:54] hendermikl: chat and email is smae” – I said “[18:54] john kodiyil: FOr you maybe, but I dont do business that way.”
hendermikl: okay
hendermikl: why?
john kodiyil: That is how I do things
hendermikl: Is there something wrong with the chat?
john kodiyil: I dont know, is there?
hendermikl: you said you can’t do it through chat
john kodiyil: Oh you mean as opposed to emais
john kodiyil: ok
hendermikl: This is what I want to know, then I can send the email
hendermikl: Is there a money back policy if you don’t finish the project
hendermikl: or ask Bud to do it
john kodiyil: No, it is just that this is how I do things. Initial chit chat is ok, but anything official about work being done has to be done through email. This is how I do things. Of course it is up to you to decide whether you want to go ahead with it or not.
hendermikl: We have to decide that, but that is based on is there a money back policy
hendermikl: what if you close the project as you close your music studio
hendermikl: and then we are in trouble
john kodiyil: Yeah that is cool question, but from now on, we discuss your website through email, I will answer all your questions
hendermikl: how come you can’t do it now
john kodiyil: I dont want to
hendermikl: why?
john kodiyil: I dont want to
john kodiyil: My decision, yours to do whatever with it.
hendermikl: is it because I offended you yesterday in some way
john kodiyil: nop
hendermikl: they
hendermikl: I have to tell Bud about it
john kodiyil: You have nothing in me to affect me to offend me
hendermikl: I wasted my time
hendermikl: talking to Bud
hendermikl: about it
john kodiyil: Do that
hendermikl: now you are saying you can’t answer my questions
hendermikl: what kind of Christian are you
john kodiyil: Plus it would help me if I can talk to someone techinical
hendermikl: are you afraid of something?
hendermikl: I’m technical
hendermikl: what kind of technical questions you want me to answer
john kodiyil: You dont know what a Domain name is.
john kodiyil: that is basic
john kodiyil: stuff
hendermikl: website name is simple term for domain name
hendermikl: if you are expecting your customers to be technical like you
john kodiyil: for a layman, but that is why I needed someone who is aware of the right term
hendermikl: you wont probably dont get any customers
john kodiyil: Why are you so scared to send an email?

The scare tactic expert gave some ideas on how to kick someone’s back, and simply vanished. Evangelist Abey Kalisseril is again in conversation after he learnt how everyone else is kiddish.

Abey

matthew matthew / Abey Kalisseril / Abraham Mathew:

If you are so bold and threatening.Why cant you call me.You very well know my number.These kind of threats dont work with me.
Kalinga Drumz:

in your dictionary there only two words threatening and blackmailing.man, you are living in an uncivilized world.who do you think you are.for what i need to call you.you and swapna made up all the mess.and i want to call you? i can give my number.you call me.have no doubt.your threat will work with varghese and sapna.your can scare them away.not with me. do you want to settle this issue with john and pastor rajesh and pay for the damages or have my lawyers involved.

You do what you can.Tell your lawyer to call me.I will report your nuisance to the police and you will have one more case on your head for harassing me.

At this point, the Divine Retreat Centre Volunteer Swapna Abraham took over the case from his ex-husband Abey Kalisseril. Now it is her turn. Isn’t she a diplomat for peace?

Swapna Abraham:

I would prefer that I meet you in person to discuss whatever will be of help to you, and my motive in doing so is that you do not misunderstand that I am trying to run away. Do give me your phone number and let me know where you stay. When I visit that place we could meet up and clear your doubts as far as I can be of any help. God bless you.
I am not comfortable discussing anything on the net, nor am I comfortable giving you my phone number, if you do not mind. Thank you.
Regards,
Swapna
Kalinga Drumz:

i live in cochin.you can meet me personally in cochin.before i give you my address i want the date when you’ll come.i will give my telephone number on the day you come.to give the directions to my home or office.no misunderstanding on you running away as long as you set the record straight.otherwise we’ll make the record straight with you and your husband.hope you can understand.
Swapna Abraham:

Will come to Cochin some time between the 22nd and the 25th of May. I don’t check my mail often. It will be helpful if I can have your number ASAP as I will be travelling soon again.
I don’t understand what you wrote in the last few lines, but you can tell me straight when we meet. The only mail I now expect from you is for your phone number just for the purpose of one discussion. That’s all. Thank you.
Swapna
Kalinga Drumz:

let me tell you something clearly.don’t bring in your stories that you brought to john kodiyil last time.if you have problem with varghese you take up that with him not with us.everyone is fed up of your junk stories.i want to discuss with you about paying our call sheet not anything else.full stop.what i want from you is exact date and time of your coming and your willingness to talk about making the payment only.i don’t meet girls privatly.you have to bring your husband or someone else with you like your lawyer.they will better understand our language.not you.

Swapna Abraham:

Excuse me, you can talk more politely than that if you don’t mind. Do not take advantage of other people’s courtesy. I agreed to talk to you only with the intention of sorting out any grievance that you may have against ‘me’, since you have been mailing me for sometime now, sending me excerpts of chats with Abey, and so on. Neither am I interested in meeting any person for that matter. It’s a shame that you misunderstand my most pure and genuine motives.
I have not asked you to do any work. I do not have to pay you anything.
Abey and Swapna’s problem with Varghese will or will not be sorted out between the three of us. I have no need to discuss that with a third person that I do not want to divulge anything to.
If you have done work for virgis and he has not settled your account, do not ask me for that. Am not even interested in hearing about it. You did not ask me when you took up that work from him.
John Kodiyil is not known to me on a personal level, although I have met him with Rajesh and Kiran Thomman () once. Pastor Rajesh Mathew (Joshua Generation Ministries. Cochin) is our friend, and John Kodiyil is in his Church. What was done at that time was done to protect anyone else from working with him after our bad experience with him, especially since Rajesh was also going to be affected?
I am not responsible for anything that you have discussed with Abey either, as we have been living separately for a while for reasons that I am not comfortable telling people I do not know.
Therefore, I will not be meeting you. I cannot help you in anyway and for the way that you interact with a total stranger like me, I’d dare not even communicate with you again. I hope that I have made myself absolutely clear. Thank you very much. I will be deleting any mail that you will send me hereafter as I am not wanting to get my fingers burned trying to help people who don’t even talk with respect.
Swapna
Kalinga Drumz:

man, you already confessed that you told john to stop the project.so you call john.and pay our call sheet.i told you.you are a court joker.you don’t know how the justice system in India works.whatever you want to talk to my lawyer,you can talk in the court.
no problem.you report to the police.you will spend at least a day in jail before getting the bail.the police can reopen some cases against you that you covered up.

matthew matthew / Abey Kalisseril / Abraham Mathew:

Do what you like man.I am not scared of you.I havnt done anything wrong nor do i owe you anything.I havnt even seen you.Dont play with words.Go give a case and lets see from there.

Kalinga Drumz:

eda kanjave, have you ever admitted you mistakes.your wife even left you.you pathetic no-life lunatic.come to the chenganoor police station next week.bring your fbi report also.
matthew matthew / Abey Kalisseril / Abraham Mathew:

What nonsence are you talking about.You have my number.If you have anything to complain, please call me up and talk.Dont harass me through emails.

Kalinga Drumz:

Complain to you? Who do you think you are to complain to you? nee areda, pallile achano? there is “complaint against” you, so come to the Chenganoore Police Station with your “FBI” report that you said you have against varghese. I don’t want your children to be victims of your stupidity, so better surrender rather than you are forced to.

matthew matthew / Abey Kalisseril / Abraham Mathew:

To yahoo,this person called manu is blackmailing me.Please take the necessary action.He uses a rediffmail address.I dont want anymore of his mails coming into my inbox.I think he is slightly mad and am losing peace of mind.
I am warning you again.Stop this harrasment.I am reporting you anyway.May God give you wisdom.Doing a gospel album and threatening me.I have nothing to do with you, You are the one who is scared.Writing emails pretemding you are someone else.
Are you the Police superintendent or the DGP?Why should i go to chengannur police station.No police has summoned me.Let me get a summons from them and then i will take it up from there.Just because you say,”come to police station”.Why should I?Are you mad?
Kalinga Drumz:

am I scared? Come on.if you were not scared at all, you would not have written the david long email.how come you did not talk to varghese, acting like someone, before coming to threaten and blackmail John Kodiyil, and sending threatening email to varghese after that.varghese has been questioned by the police? He has to get permission from you to produce his album? Varghese has to give you how many lakhs? Divine retreat centre has case against varghese?
Do you have a back spine to talk to varghese right now?
That is the same question to you.we are doing a gospel album for a producer.what in the hell you want to threaten John Kodiyil? You lunatic.what gospel has to do with you, you cocaine addict.you please talk about karappu, smoking pot into the nose, your days with girls.bible has those stories of people like you who went to hell.
give me your address to send the summons.i don’t want your parents to go to the Police station, so don’t give their address.also i don’t want your children to suffer.give your and your ex-wife’s address.we’ll go from “here”.
matthew matthew / Abey Kalisseril / Abraham Mathew:

Oh Its you Mr.varghese,you first tried your tricks with swapna and got her story and published on your site.You wont get anything out of me.I am not scared of you.GOT IT?
Ew all know your language.So GO AND TAKE A WALK.I have already complained to yahoo abuse about your threats,so dont think you can shut down my email and DONT U DARE HARASS ME!!!!!


Gossip or Cover Up? (0) 

Friday, May 12, 2006, 05:22 AM – Cover Up

Divine Retreat Centre has many branches in India. The Mumbai branch is called Tabor. One of the website promoting Tabor to the public is Glorify God – promoted by a girl named Melody. The site has a message board, many articles on “God”, and the map to Tabore.

The message board carries subjects like “Church Central – For discussions on Current Affairs in the Catholic Church & Church at large.” Can you explain what does that mean? I thought it is a good place to discuss the latest State investigation against Divine Retreat Centre. I posted the news paper report on the site, but within few minutes I received the following reply from the moderator.

I deleted the content of the last two thread starters you posted on May 11th. They both appear to be about personal issues and are potentially gossip. You may take up my decision with the forum owner, Melody if you wish to appeal. You may do this by using the PM or email option on this board. Here is the text of the posts I deleted. I will be more than happy to repost them if Melody decides I made a mistake.

According to the moderator, the latest investigation against Divine Retreat Centre is a “potential” gossip. “Potential Gossip”? After almost a month, the Kerala State Govt. started the Investigation, the faithful of Divine Retreat Centre has been spreading the lie that the Kerala State investigation against Divine Retreat Centre is a gossip, and the news paper is at its fault. This is the reality of the followers of Divine Retreat Centre – ignorant of the facts.

The moderator has another explanation that the personal issues with Divine Retreat Centre should never be addressed in public? I don’t quite get it why the thousands of people go to Divine Retreat for what reasons? Don’t they have personal issues? I should not probably discuss the personal problem Divine Retreat Centre created against me – if they had a chance to beat me up with their mafia they would have done that, now they can’t do that, but at least voodoo their faithful of lies such as “gossip”.

The Divine Retreat Centre nor its faithful never acknowledge their mistakes, and is in complete denial of their evil acts. This is the reason why this Kingdom still exists with its evil practices.

The people are trapped in Divine’s Fund raising tactics. (0) 

Tuesday, May 16, 2006, 06:15 AM – Money Money Money

The following personal testimony came to our attention. The author Manoj expresses Divine Retreat Centre’s fund raising tactics.

The Muringoor Divine Retreat Centre is a Christian (Catholic) centre based at Muringoor, a village in central Kerala, India. It conducts large scale prayer meetings claiming that those who attend such meetings will be cured of all diseases, including major diseases such as cancer, AIDS, etc. Such prayer meetings are conducted in six Indian languages apart from English. It collects huge funds from India and abroad towards this “noble cause”. Its director, one Father George Panackal, claims that it had “served 10 million people from all over the world since 1990” (See Link: www.catholic.org )
I first came to know about this group from a trainer in Public Speaking (Bangalore,India), who conducts training programmes on Personality Development and Public speaking. I attended his course some time back. Though his course is essentially based upon the technique developed by Dale Carnegie (the legendary author and triner on Public Speaking), he has, according to me, a tendency to couch his course in obscurantist Christian beliefs. He even imparts absolute nonsense to the participants on various topics such as miracle cures, homosexuality etc. He teaches that prayers cures even such terminal diseases as cancer and AIDS, even after the patiants are given up by modern medical practitioners. My experience is that most of the participants who attend the course become very receptive to these unsubstantiated claims, once the trainer convince the participants, through his oratorial skills, to believe blindly in whatever he teaches. At the initial stages he even sounds a bit rational when he says tha he does not believe in astrology, palmistry, gurus etc.
Then comes his request! To contribute money to to Muringoor Divine Retreat Centre. Voluntarily! But he immediately takes out a writing-pad and asks the participants to tell their names and to declare the amounts each of them wants to contribute. Most of the participants fails to resist his demands and are trapped. He asks them to write their wishes on a sheet of paper, which, he says, will be sent to the Muringoor center where they will be prayed upon. And their wishes will be fullfilled in no time!

It is after this experience that I came to read a news that the Kerala Hight Court has ordered an inquiry in to various allegations agains the centre.

 

Do you know the proper Channel? (0) 

Wednesday, May 31, 2006, 06:15 PM – Fr.Augustine Vallooran

Fr.Augustine Vallooran is spreading the following defamatory email to a lot of people, and we received a copy from a church at Singapore.


Divine TV and its mission (0) 

Wednesday, June 4, 2006, 04:21 AM – Wakeup Divine Retreat Centre


The new venture of Divine Retreat Centre is Divine TV. The intention is to spread the gospel – according to their website. In my opinion, they are going to use this as a propaganda machine to boost their reputation especially when this organization’s reputation is under threat.

Fr.Augustine Vallooran is one of the directors of Jeevan TV, a family channel run by Catholic priests from Kerala. The channel had wide publicity in the United States in 2003, since no one wants to subscribe to it, they stopped broadcasting. As some sources told me, the Jeevan TV started as a joint venture between different Christian denominations, but later it ended up as a Catholic channel. Abey Kalisseril once told me he is the one who told Fr.Augustine Valloran to start such a channel – I have to regret for putting some belief into that story.
I gathered all my family members, and couple of my friends to watch Jeevan TV; it was 3 years ago. The show started with bunch of girls and guys dancing to a tune of a song ‘Lajjavathiye’. The gals in western cloths – half naked – dancing to the tune just put shame on my face. In between the shows, there was a snippet of film ad. Disgusting! Disgusting! Disgusting! The hero of the movie injecting a sharp sword to the stomach of the villain, the blood splashing all over the face of the hero – he showed great relief of satisfaction for killing his enemy. What is this? Is this a Catholic Family TV Channel?

Shame on my face, I continued watching the channel. At 4:00 PM the religions programs started. It started with an English song. A girl walking on a long road, singing some English song, at the end of the song, Fr.Augustine Vallooran started his message. The message was pretty good for a Catholic believer not for any other Christian denomination. At 4:30 PM, the “Shabarimala” program started. No, Fr. Augustine Vallooran was not hosting the program. It is a non-Christian program. At 4:45 PM, here comes an Islam program. At 5:00 PM, again a Catholic program of Fr.Mathew Naikomparambil.

The programs ‘Streams of Grace’ and ‘Vachana Deepthi’ are Catholic programs, not something to entertain the other Christian denominations much. This is because, their own anti-protestant remarks in the program. I have a real surprise how it ended up showing up on a non-Catholic God TV?

Nobody is against Divine to start their own TV channels. But they should stay away from making “anti-protestant”, “anti-Hindu” and against any religion in that respect, any anti-social remarks on their channel. My prediction is that this channel Divine TV will be controlled by guys like Ruben Gerad Mathew and will generate more damages than good.

The public should write to the Department of Information and Broadcasting, India to cancel their broadcasting license if this organization try to spread anti-Semitism. Wakeup Divine, not just the Catholics, non-Catholics will be watching your new channel.

 

How a man’s venom is contagious? (0) 

Saturday, June 4, 2006, 07:39 PM – Abey Kalisseril

that I will have to get back to him, that if I don’t no one will accept my ministry or listen to what I sing or preach… These things he mails me or tells me when I called a couple of times to find out about what needs to be done about the children’s ten day break, since there was no confirmation from him. -Swapna Abraham


When I read this email, I did not have much surprise. Swapna is simply a victim of their “own” venom.

It was in 2002 I got a call from a friend who is in Texas. A friend of mine; I have known him for years, our parents know each other; he tells me the ministry that I run will not get any support from the public anymore. “What is the reason” I asked him? He told me I sent pornographic emails, and the Christian community has simply rejected me. I asked him who told you this. Never a surprise! Abey Kalisseril throwing another “ace” onto the table. Now Abey Kalisseril has used the same “ace” against his own wife Swapna Abraham. Isn’t a man’s venom contagious?

It surprised me when I analyzed where this venom was fertilized, and why it is so strong. It is simply because of the denial of their own state, their pathetic situation, and a “no no” to clean up their acts. If they clean-up their acts how they can be different from other ordinary people?

I personally refute all the false accusations and defamatory remarks you mentioned in your email of 22 February, 2005 sent to the Catholic Spirituality Centre against the directors and volunteers of the Divine Retreat Centre – Fr.Augustine Vallooran, Director of Divine Retreat Centre
