This time Nik chose Chicago as his epic event and millions will watch him while he is on wire. This is the most adventurous and dare-loving guy am talking about here. Nik became the first person ever traversed the Grand Canyon on a tightrope in June 2013. And he is the first person to walk on a tightrope directly over Niagara falls (on June15,2012). Nik says this is his 'living' . And his faith in God is really appreciable and the confidence is to a great extent and an un-imaginable support from his family and friends.
Nik's wife Erendira is always beside him and encourages him and they are gifted with three kids Yanni(16) ,Amadaos (13), and Evita (11). All the three will cheer up and chant when their father builds and break the records. The Legendary family is born to do this.





This sunday in Chicago
And this sunday Nik will walk a steepest walk ever a 15degree angle rising approximately,eight stories between the Marina city west tower and the Leo Burnett building. And behold! this is not gonna end in this way ,Nik is wearing the blindfold for the second portion of the walk,stretching between the Marina city towers . He will walk from west to east. And he is going to do this without a net or harness,this is really a daredevil we are seeing here!

On Nov 3, morning 5:30 ㏂ (IST) people like me stick to their televisions to experience something like a spine jerk. The walking Wallanda family seventh generation iconic ,Nik Wallenda created a sensational mind blowing records in a single night not one but two different walks and it is the skyscraperlive ,Chicago. Congratulations! to Nik for building the two world records.

People who chanted for Nik in the windy city astonished when he made a walk on a wire which at a 19° inclination. It was told earlier as a 15° inclination but just moments before his walk Nik told on live that the inclination is noticed as a 19° one to the hosts Willie Geist and Natalie morales from Todays. And there is also a weather reporter Jim Cantore . 
Nik Wallenda completed his first skyscraper walk on the wire between Marina towers and while he is walking he thanked Jesus for giving him the oppourtunity and talked to his dad and he said he would like to take a selfie while walking. But he took the selfie with Natalie morales when he finished his first walk.

It is very exciting moment right after his first walk he made his second walk in which he is blindfolded and this is an epic. Yes it is really.


The social media been busy with the viral of Nik's daredevil adventure and on the spot he was awarded by two world records which are handed to him by an official.

I feel like my faithrestorement is done by watching Nik's event in Chicago. And we are now have to greet Nik Wallenda on his grand success. This moment will stand high forever ,and Nik told that next year will be the 45th anniversary of the Wallenda's wire legacy and he gonna do a feat . 
And we will be waiting for his next feat until we keep on memorising the nine world records holder's dareness and faith.

The visuals will stay forever in our lives here, i would like to bring the hall of famers (planets) of the solar system right in. And to write some data about them which i had collected when i was in school from various source(s) .
Of all the universe the planets holds the most prestigious place in science because these are the base to explore further facts in the space. The stars,milkyways,asteriods etc. will follow after these. Let us see what the science share with us about the planets .

The names of the planets (in order) in both English and Hindi(Indian national language,with pronounciation) is below ..

1>Mercury : Buddh बुद्ध
2>Venus : Shukr शुक्र
3>Earth : Prithvi पृथ्वी

We humans travelled from the ancient rock ages to the present modernisation where there is no lookback to our motivating thoughts and the ideas been keep growing and get implemented when struck our brain. This is what happened in China to Chuan Wang who is the inventor of AIR UMBRELLA. Wait ,this doesn't mean this is an umbrella to vanquish the air which surrounds us but it did mean same as of the rain umbrella which we use currently to hide from rain.
Chuan's idea is unique as it is most a wonder in the technology. The world is now under a roof called umbrella to get not wet when the rain falls. But can you guess without any cloth or silk work above your umbrella you can still get not wet? . This sounds interesting but bit impossible we may think .By the end of 2015 we have to witness it ,because it is going to happen.


(image source: citylab.com)

A small stick like thing will be in our hands to save us from rain. And it looks like a deo.spray can and flexible to hold . Small in size but work is greater. When we carry it ,the air umbrella blows rain more than 3 feet away from us in a circular form. And it is stylish and handling is easy. Need to charge its battery for 15-30 minutes and see the wonder, there is no doubt in saying that it will replace the present day old-fashioned umbrella which is hard to carry for some people. If you are one among those hardcarriers then get ready to get amazed . Maybe other pedestrians will be jealous of you and some may say that you are the reason for getting them drowned but not the raindroplets. If you are ready to face these all then the technology from China is ready to charge you with excitement .
The designer got the idea from the deviating of the water falling from a roof to the ground. He thought how it could be if the air-flow is at the centre and surrounding with the water? . That idea gave a birth to our new mate AIR UMBRELLA .

Lets wait until the 2015 ,and feel the magic.

The world was left un-explained in case of its beauty if there exists no poetry . I am fond of good poetry as it got its own legacy. I have a quote here to say about the writing.

Where the writing won't disappear in the dark.
There will be the enlighting and rejoicing spirits -Prasanna Dasari (me)


This is how i treat a gift of writing . And i consider myself as a part of it because i got an oppurtunity to come here and blog.
A poet/poetess makes use of all the things and they make broad ways to us to get a close look into the beauty. I will say this too..

All the beauties are dumb when there is none to explain and praise-Prasanna Dasari(me)

Imagine! there is a flower in front of our eyes it is what we are just viewing it . And there we are not just thinking about it, no praised words and nothing. To us a flower is just a flower. But, when we wake-up our inner poet ,he/she says lets feel the beauty of the petals and lets praise its creator and observe how it lives and fades. Words will then flow like a flowing river and its hard to keep an end.

We all are lovers of the beauty ,yes we are. But, it doesn't come up by just watching but our likeness but be triggered by a trigger and that trigger is those beautifull pen-made astonishing words and sentences.

If we learn to see through the lens of a writer ,then everything is worth. And there will be peace in our minds if we have an author mindset our logical thinking will never lead us to feud with un-necessary things/people.

But it needs much practice and commitment to read or listen to anything with patience . I will say as below

The attention we pay to something we ought to listen is the investment we invest for our success-(me)

I was there when i hate to read the poems they seem to me as junk and useless and less motivated and lack of clarity and overpraise. But when my mind matured and when i faced the situations where i couldn't find words to explain it . Then i realised the need of poetry. Again i say..

When common words are lack and feels not fit ,there shows up the poetry-(me)

And now am in love with it..
And i would like to share here two of my best choices , one from a poet and other from a poetess.

FEAR NO MORE

Fear no more the heat O' the sun;
Nor the furious winter's rages;
Thou thy Wordly task hast done,
Home art gone, and ta'en thy wages;
Golden lads and girls all must,
As chimney sweepers come to dust.

Fear no more the frown of the great,
Thou art past the tyrant's stroke:
Care no more the clothe and eat;
To thee the reed is as the oak:
The sceptre,learning,physic,must
All follow this,and come to dust.

Fear no more the lightining-flash,
Nor the all-dread thunder-stone;
Fear not slander,Censure rash;
Thou hast finished joy and moan;
All lovers young ,all lovers must
Consign to thee,and come to dust.

No exorciser harm thee!
Nor no witchcraft charm thee!
Ghost unlaid forbear thee!
Nothing ill come near thee!
Quiet consummation have;
And renowned be thy grave!
-William Shakespeare


SYLVIA PLATHClick here to know more







(photocredit:©abecerra;freeimages)MIRROR


I am silver and exact.I have no preconceptions.
Whatever I see I swallow immediately
Just as it is,unmisted by love or dislike.
I am not cruel,only truthful
The eye of a little god four-cornered.
Most of the time I meditate on the opposite wall.
It is pink,with speckles. I have looked as it so long
I think it is a part of my heart. But it flickers.
Faces and darkness seperate us over and over.
Now I am a lake. A woman bends over me,
Searching my reaches for what she really is,
Then she turns to those liars, the candles and the moon.
I see her back, and reflect it faithfully.
She rewards me with tears and an agitation of hands.
I am important to her. She comes and goes.
Each morning it is her face that replaces the darkness,
In me she has drowned a young girl,and in me an old woman
Rises towards her day after day,
Like a terrible fish.
-Sylvia Plath


These are the all time best my heart-hackers and i preserved these poems for many years in my rack.


(photocredit:©the_franz; freeimages)
Since i developed the interest of R&W (reading and writing) the attitude adjustment is seen in me as if i am transforming the love much more and the nature of being myself like a selfrespect is said to be maximised. Now, my vision is unique and i see everything i pass through with an author eyes. I grab what that matters to me. Anywhere i go this will be my search, to write and write and write....endlessly.

The following post i saw it in one of my newsletter. It is really influestic to me regarding the role of Christians in the usage of social networks. So i ‘ve decided to bring it right back to my blog. And the picture is from my facebook group ‘Team Jesus-Fae(fight against evil).

And here comes the post

Virtual Friendship: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

Doug Ponder

Whether it’s Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Foursquare, Flickr, LinkedIn, Reddit, Tumblr, Imgur, or whatever comes next—social media have changed our relationships in significant ways. With the touch of a button on a small device I carry in my pocket, I can instantly discover what’s happening with friends on the other side of the world.

Drawing from personal experience, pastoral conversations, and recent sociological studies, I’m willing to wager that social media’s impact on our relationships has been equally wonderful and detrimental, introducing lots of new opportunities and lots of unforeseen challenges for Christians who use them.

The Good

Keeping in touch has never been easier thanks to the instant, far-reaching, and widespread power of the internet. Social media outlets afford us with the chance to know and be known by people thousands and thousands of miles away. A father serving in a foreign war can see daily pictures of his wife and children at home with just a few clicks. A mother can keep in touch with her son at college, who probably won’t remember to call as often as she would like, but who will always remember to update his profile to let the world know what he’s doing. Missionaries in remote corners of the world can keep their sponsoring churches informed with stories and images of their latest work. Churches can send out collective messages to all of their members, instantly notifying everyone of important events like service cancellations during extreme weather, an immediate prayer need, etc. All of this good has come about despite our relatively short time using this technology. So, I suspect we will continue to discover nearly limitless opportunities to use social media for good. However…

The Bad

People often say that things are neutral, and what you do with them—not the thing itself—is good or bad. While true in one sense, that statement is a very misleading. For to say that something is neutral is not the same as saying that something is harmless or inert or benign. Consider fire, for example. Fire is morally neutral in that it does not commit morally just or unjust actions. Yet fire is not harmless or inert or benign. It is highly dangerous when not respected for its great power to destroy.

The same is true of social media. Like fire, it can be used for very good ends, but it also involves unavoidable consequences in its use. The unavoidable consequences of using fire are obvious: its heat and light are constant forces that affect all who are near the flames. But what are the unavoidable consequences of using social media?

To begin with, prolonged use of digital screens (TVs, computer screens, tablets, smart phones, etc.) have noted negative effects. Medical, psychological, and sociological studies have reported various disagrees of problems caused by prolonged use of digital screens, including: a reduction in our attention spans, an increased need for visual stimuli and certain auditory experiences, a reduced capacity for abstract thought and concentration, etc.

On top of this, social media present us with further challenges, too. One of the features of social media is that we can choose who or what we want to listen to, when we want to hear them, and whether we want to respond. If you don’t like what someone said, you can simply “unfollow” or “unsubscribe” to their posts while still remaining “friends” with them in an utterly meaningless sense of the term. Friendship does not work this way in “real life.” I cannot simply “unfollow” you or “unsubscribe” to your thoughts and conversations, because those are what form the bedrock of every genuine friendship.

Another negative consequence of social media is the ability to edit, delete, and selectively reveal what parts of our lives we want others to see. This is impossible with real-time friendships, where all of our faults are on display for those who love us and want to help us. Real-time friendships keep us humble, since we can’t hide or polish our obvious need for Jesus. But social media make it possible to make it appear as if we don’t need help, since we can craft a nearly perfect image of our lives for all our “friends” to see. This also has the effect of making people envious, as they are tempted to compare their real lives with the polished, perfected versions that they see in the walls of their friends. (This is so prevalent, in fact, that psychologists have coined a name for the phenomenon: “Facebook depression.”)

The Ugly

One fast food chain famously says, “We didn’t invent the chicken, just the chicken sandwich.” In the same spirit, social media did not invent gossip, bragging, backbiting, grumbling, or arguing—it just invented the platforms that allow us to broadcast those sins to the world. In this way, social media has simply made it easier for us to see the sin that was already there, and what we have found is very ugly indeed. You can’t go two minutes on social media without seeing a biting remark, a sarcastic jab, a sinful complaint, a selfish request, an argumentative post, etc. The real ugliness of social media, therefore, is really just the ugliness of our hearts.

Where to Go From Here?

The positive benefits of social media are obvious, and we should thank God for them (James 1:17). The negative consequences of social media are less obvious, and will require a great deal of prayer and some hard thinking to discern. But we must do so if we want to avoid the potential pitfalls that come with the territory. Lastly, the one thing that is obvious is the ugliness of human hearts. Social media has not made sin worse; it’s only made sin clearer. We should resist the urge to blame social media for sin and remember instead the need that all people have for the transforming grace of Jesus.

The nature’s beauty is jealous of a woman’s beauty. They both are the strong competitiors and its hard for us to pick the one. The woman’s beauty is additionally increased ,i mean the beauty looks more beautiful when she is with accessories and other style bags. But coming to the jewellery , these are what a girl is fond of and in love with. Almost all would love to wear jewellery and it is their dream to get more designs. And somepeople will argue in case of the Christian women. That Christian girls must not wear any kind of jewellery. And this can’t that much easily digested with the Christian girls.



I don’t want to give lot of references from the Scripture.And i don’t mean here that to de-value some of the people who don’t allow their girls to wear any jewellery.
But ,here am going to share with you what i think and i know my thoughts won’t count . Whatever it is i have to say what i feel. What i say about this is…

Wearing jewellery won’t distract a woman from God.


And this is why because what actually God speaks about this is.

“TheLorddoes not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance,but theLordlooks at the heart.”
1 samuel 16:07


See what God want to tell us. He doesn’t care for how you are physically is. You may be strong,weak,pretty,not pretty etc .All He need is your inner heart. If it is not good then definitely it opposes God and then God says that Heis away from you until that heart change and washed.
Girls may wear jewellery but those jewelleries must not take the high place before God. One must love God with all pure heart. The willingness to wear jewellery is greater than the love on God then this is the time to realize that the thoughts need to change.
Disobeying God is a sin . He needs (demands) our complete supplication to Him. If that is disturbed or sidelined by any external factor then it is a sin. Let your likes and wantings dont let to ruin your relationship with God. Be beautifull and be blessed.

Reading a book is what we all love to do if we are interested at reading. Even i belong to the team of readers, but i read less and write more i know very well that am not a regular reader i fail to read because of the lack of time (mostly wasting it). But still , in an occassional manner i associate with any book i almost read all categories of books but i never been with a humour one.I know a fact and that is

One cannot be a good writer,
unless a good reader


Because we know some and our neighbour know some more and the stranger knows much. If i wanna be the one to never fall behind the race of knowing new things and writing about them i must learn from the seniority. The views of a person doesn't match with the other no matter how much well know about themselves it is like gnashing teeth when one has to agree the view of the other. And therefore it is better to know more and learn more by the reading then only one can swim with ease in the ocean of writing . And here i don't mean that there are no tides in the ocean but in some cases we have to apply others principles to survive.

Since my childhood i am a reader of all kinds of books (especially Gospel of Christ books) . Because their availability is more when compared to the other books in terms of both price and stock. But the thing is in all the 10+ years of reading i only felt that 'just i am reading a book' but its very least times i felt that the author is talking to me . For a time to get passed i grabbed them and i start reading and i end the entire book within 24hours regardless how much big it is(Ofcourse all those are below 100 pages) . That may be an autobiography or a biography or any philosophical i just read it and keep it aside. Some important things which seems interesting to me i adopted them and applied in my daily life and then i left all the other stuff which i felt un-necessary all the years went on and on like this. No book influenced me to a greater extent and empowered me spiritually , i gave attention and i focused good but still there is no contact to my heart by the book i read.
But recently i saw a book which i read online ,which is a Gospel related too. And all the legacy of 10years no touch to the heart flewed away . And it is in Nov 2014 and while reading the book it made me to feel it and it i was feeded by it when i am reading it. And that book is the below one



How to live a holy life?
-C.E. Orr
The book is not a printed version i daily read it at morning times especially 7㏂ or 8㏂ around. And i completed book in three days which i took so long when i compared to past. And i felt this time that i am reading something which is much usefull to me. I read many books but am touched by this , i thank the author for the work .

The name of the book indicates the depths it digged a holy life is a life supposed to lead by everyone who believes in God . Talking about the Holy life it is what the God's prescribed path to all of us and it doesn't mean that the atheists{Who don't believe in God} are unholy even they live a holy life without God but that is different. And living a holy life by having God as a centre is different.
Abide to the commandments , the practice of perseverance etc. include in the holy life adoptation.

In his book 'How to live a holy life' the author C.E.Orr [ChaboEbert Orr] clearly mentions the truths in which we are living now. And to know God, doing according to His will everything is just an awesome work. All touched me and it may touch others too who are likeminded as me. I never thought of reviewing a book because i may be blindsided from good books or may be am not an intelligent . This book it touched me and i felt it all great .

I would like to write down some sentences and discuss on them in my point of view. And these paragraphs are my favourite from the book.

"A little flower grew in a place so shaded that no ray from the sun could fall directly upon it. A window was so situated that at a certain time in the afternoon it refracted the sun's rays and threw them upon the flower . Thus giving it colour and beauty ,and aiding it to bloom."

By reading the above para ,it gave me a clear visual on how God helps us in the indirect ways and how these blessings are blossomed .

About the Bible life C.E.Orr wrote
" A Bible life is the best ,purest,noblest,and holiest life that can be lived upon the earth "

As a reader of The Holy Bible and being raised as a Christian these words are monumentals for me.

And in another chapter Orr quotes us as oh! traveller to eternity
And this is what our destiny is when someone mentions our destiny by such words it will encourages us.

About love :
Love is measured not by our emotions ,but by our obedience,our service

About spirituality:
Spiritual things are higher than physical things ,spiritual relation is closer than natural relation

In a paragraph Orr says that we have to realise the imperfections and make improvements from them in our life journey.

Another paragraph that attracted me is about the SPIRITUAL DRYNESS

"Spiritual dryness is sometimes the result of attachment to the world. Set your affections on things above and not on things on the earth . Unless we live by the Bible ,we can't be spiritual. A little affection for the things of earth robs the soul of spiritual life. In this matter Satan is an excellent reasoner. He will suggest that your desires are only for the glory of God; that you have no affection for the wordly object, but desire it only for God's glory.
Beware how you desire earthly things for God's glory. Underneath may be a desire for self-gratification ,ease, or luxury . If you are troubled by a lack of sensible devotion in worship , examine your affections. Possibly you may find some tiny roots twining around something of this world"

The above case is what i am very familiar with. I have a desire and everytime i tested it there is a word arising and saying 'you are His child and inheritent whatever you do it will be a glory to Him (God).' I fell to this ,i admit that am not perfect because i did fall for sins and earthly attractions and colours. But still i have the fighting spirit by which i can comfort myself with a hope.
All those books never talked to me in this way , that is why this book hijacked me. I learnt myself how to read any book now by not spending much time . And there is a book which is the Word of God THE BIBLE . It is the book of all ,either a believer or a non-believer may read it and learn from it. But still, to know more about this Holy Scripture there must be a journal or an article which explains how to read it and how not to misunderstand it. I only listen to the experiences but not the empowerments.
The word sown in our heart is guarded well with such kind of Gospel readings. But behold! do not get lost by those books which are anti to our faith.

We reveal ourselves to the world
by displaying our books

A good book will develop good thoughts and a bad book will be likewise bad . Don't say that there are no such books which are bad. Let me say a thing here , there are many magazines and erotic books in the store and if we take an erotica and read it, at some point we are struck by the most seduced word and it is so irresistable and we repeatedly read it and immediately follows our imagination and it leads us to things which are not safe (masturbation, an illegal affair etc.)
And this doesn't mean you keep yourself banned from such informative books on sexual education and erotica. We have the need to know about them too. It is natural . But , we have to keep in mind that they won't become our daily habit which definitely leads us to the addiction nature. Read, but be watchfull your heart and emotions learning new things isn't a sin but to know our limits in it is wise.

And those who are addicted to the unhealthy things in this book Orr says it ..

Your failure was not because you could not ,but because you did not

So we must be carefull on what we read and take required measurements to save ourselves from the bad influence ,as we know
an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure
Discovering alone is not sufficient . If we do not correct a fault that we have discovered,we soon lose consciousness of the fault
Orr says as follows about the TEMPTATION

"It is not sinful to be tempted . We never lose any spirituality by being tempted . It is the slight yieldings that cause a leaking ,a loss of grace. Clearup the vision of your faith a little and take a look of your beautiful glittering crown♚ of life. It is not gold,neither crystal. Do not look at it as such, but see it a crown♔ of life. You will be crowned with eternal life if you will but endure temptation. Think of this in the hour of thy sole trial.Fight on; heaven awaits to reward you."


C.E.Orr says
"An hours workdone in the quiet ,secret power of the spirit is worth more than a day of your own efforts. Keep the roots watered

So here it is clear that we must not be showy in terms of fighting these trials.

About kindness Orr says
" Be as kind as you can be today ,and you can be kinder tomorrow".

Of all the books ,this is the best one in my view. The best is what which helps us to tolerate .

And finally the lovable quote by Orr is the below one. And i have to conclude with this.

WE DO NOT BECOME CHRISTIANS BY GROWTH, BUT WE MUST GROW AFTER WE BECOME CHRISTIANS
Read More
This is not a new topic to raise and keep on a desk of discussion here this is the old file and the oldest question. But lets open some new locks in this locker as they are hiding from our eyes and beyond our thoughts. This question is still a spine jerk among the true followers of Christ. While the atheism keeps on trying hard to prove Christianity wrong. But the belief and the faith is stronger and it is true and the real power that helps to keep a check to the atheists. And talking about the question it is a brain tester to each and every Christian.
And here THE BIBLE plays an important role to understand the questions.
And we have to search for the evidences from the historical archives. Since its evolution The Holy Bible been travelling through all the possible obstacles to stand and prove that it is not a tale. Unfortunately the split of the Christians occured many years ago, and this is due to the beliefs of scholars and the various councils that took place on behalf of the thoughts of the people .



Because of the disagreement on various matters (like Trinity) , Christians have debated,disagreed and then divided. And this division is enormous and one new belief and one new question give rise to a denomination and under that denomination other sub-denominations . And so on spread like a revolution this is more than a world war among the Christians itself.
And the divisions between groups are defined by the nature of Jesus and the Christology
The life after death ,heaven and hell, the Resurrection of the dead are the internal indifferences for the group divisions .

currently we have 41,000 Christian denominations
And to the person who believes in the Christ ,it is a shock as he starts to think which denomination he belong to after he accept Jesus as saviour.
Let us see the list of groups or denominations which are now in run.
↘Catholicism -Catholic Church composed of 23 Churches
↘Eastern Orthodoxy
↘Oriental Orthodoxy
↘Church of the East

Assyrian and Ancient
↘Protestantism
↘Lutheranism

↘Internet Churches (eg: LifeChurch.tv)
↘LGBT-Affirming Christian denominations
↘Interdenominational (ecumenical) Churches and signs
↘Revivals
↘Misc.

These are the branches the spread from the disagreement on the Faith and beliefs of high priests and members of the Churches . Everybody claim that final point leads to Jesus Christ and they are the original path and true ones ,but they have the piles of papers of doctrines which are irrespective of other denomination. Am not speaking from being out of them am a part of a denomination too . I fall under both Protestant and Anglican . And this old question newed in me whenever i face the question from a fellow Christian when he/she asks to which religion or denomination or Church or group i belong to. Everytime i replied them am a Christian thats it . And this lead me here to take a time on this. I know its been from decades that this process is in progress. Millions of people are present in each denomination and they follow according to their doctrinal principles. Some will not pray ,other say no Christmas , and other say Jesus is not a God , other will say Trinity exists and other say no its not. To the one who want to believe in JESUS CHRIST newly it is like a trap. He doesn't get any wayout when some person like an atheist questions him in this way.

And who will bear the outcome of all these ?? Our ancestors or us??






Here am not going to point them wrong who conducted the counsils ,and am not willing to prove any personnel wrong. That is the past ,and i want to let know myself first why does this happen and to know it i have to go to the Origin of all these.


And here it is a need to know more about the term 'ecumenical' and wikipedia got the information as follows.

An ecumenical council (or oecumenical
council ; also general council) is a
conference of ecclesiastical dignitaries and
theological experts convened to discuss and
settle matters of Church doctrine and
practice in which those entitled to vote are
convoked from the whole world
(oikoumene) and which secures the
approbation of the whole Church.
The word "ecumenical" derives from the
Greek language (ἡ) οἰκουμένη (γῆ), which
literally means "the inhabited world", but
which was also applied more narrowly to
mean the Roman Empire. Bishops belonging
to what became known as the Church of the
East participated in none of the councils
later than the second, and further
noteworthy schisms led to non-participation
by other members of what had previously
been considered a single Christian Church.
Later ecumenical councils thus included
bishops of only parts of the Church as
previously constituted and were rejected or
ignored by Christians not belonging to those
parts.
The first seven Ecumenical Councils ,
recognised by both the eastern and western
branches of Chalcedonian Christianity , were
convoked by Christian Roman Emperors,
who also enforced the decisions of those
councils within the state church of the
Roman Empire.
Acceptance of councils as ecumenical and
authoritative varies between different
Christian denominations. Disputes over
christological and other questions have led
certain branches to reject some councils
that others accept.
Acceptance of councils by
denomination
The Church of the East (accused by others
of adhering to Nestorianism) accepts as
ecumenical only the first two councils.
Oriental Orthodox Churches accept the first
three. Both the Eastern Orthodox Church
and Roman Catholic Church recognise as
ecumenical the first seven councils, held
from the 4th to the 9th century. While the
Eastern Orthodox Church accepts no later
council or synod as ecumenical, the Roman
Catholic Church continues to hold general
councils of the bishops in full communion
with the Pope , reckoning them as
ecumenical. In all, the Roman Catholic
Church recognises twenty-one councils as
ecumenical. Anglicans and confessional
Protestants accept either the first seven or
the first four as ecumenical councils.

Infallibility of ecumenical
councils

The doctrine of the infallibility of
ecumenical councils states that solemn
definitions of ecumenical councils,
approved by the Pope, which concern faith
or morals, and to which the whole Church
must adhere are infallible. Such decrees are
often labeled as 'Canons' and they often
have an attached anathema , a penalty of
excommunication, against those who refuse
to believe the teaching. The doctrine does
not claim that every aspect of every
ecumenical council is infallible.
The Roman Catholic Church holds this
doctrine, as do most or all Eastern
Orthodox theologians. However, the
Orthodox churches accept only the first
seven general councils as genuinely
ecumenical, while Roman Catholics accept
twenty-one. Only a very few Protestants
believe in the infallibility of ecumenical
councils, but they usually restrict this
infallibility to the Christological statements
of the first seven councils. Lutheran
Christians recognize the first four councils,
whereas most High Church Anglicans
accept all seven as persuasive but not
infallible.
While the Russian Orthodox Church does
recognize the first seven ecumenical
councils as valid, some Russian
Orthodox theologians believe that the
infallibility of these councils' statements
derived from their acceptance by the
faithful (and thus from the infallibility of all
believers), and not from the acts of the
councils themselves. This differs from the
Greek Orthodox view, which accepts that an
ecumenical council is itself infallible when
pronouncing on a specific matter.

Council documents

Church councils were, from the beginning,
bureaucratic exercises. Written documents
were circulated, speeches made and
responded to, votes taken, and final
documents published and distributed. A
large part of what is known about the
beliefs of heresies comes from the
documents quoted in councils in order to be
refuted, or indeed only from the deductions
based on the refutations.
Most councils dealt not only with doctrinal
but also with disciplinary matters, which
were decided in canons ("laws"). In some
cases other survives as well. Study of the
canons of church councils is the foundation
of the development of canon law , especially
the reconciling of seemingly contradictory
canons or the determination of priority
between them. Canons consist of doctrinal
statements and disciplinary measures –
most Church councils and local synods
dealt with immediate disciplinary concerns
as well as major difficulties of doctrine.
Eastern Orthodoxy typically views the purely
doctrinal canons as dogmatic and applicable
to the entire church at all times, while the
disciplinary canons apply to a particular
time and place and may or may not be
applicable in other situations.

Circumstances of the first
ecumenical councils

Of the seven councils recognised in whole
or in part by both the Roman Catholic and
the Eastern Orthodox Church as ecumenical,
all were called by the Roman Emperor .
The emperor gave them legal status
within the entire Roman Empire. All were
held in the eastern part of the Roman
Empire. The Pope did not attend, although
he sent legates to some of them.
Church councils were traditional and the
ecumenical councils were a continuation of
earlier councils (also known as synods ) held
in the Empire before Christianity was made
legal. These include the Council of Jerusalem
(c. 50), the Council of Rome (155), the
Second Council of Rome (193), the Council
of Ephesus (193), the Council of Carthage
(251), the Council of Iconium (258), the
Council of Antioch (264), the Councils of
Arabia (246–247), the Council of Elvira
(306), the Council of Carthage (311), the
Synod of Neo-Caesarea (c. 314), the Council
of Ancyra (314) and the Council of Arles
(314).
The first seven councils recognised in both
East and West as ecumenical and several
others to which such recognition is refused
were called by the Byzantine emperors. In
the first millennium, various theological and
political differences such as Nestorianism or
Dyophysitism caused parts of the Church to
separate after councils such as those of
Ephesus and Chalcedon , but councils
recognised as ecumenical continued to be
held.
The Council of Hieria of 754, held at the
imperial palace of that name close to
Chalcedon in Anatolia, was summoned by
Byzantine Emperor Constantine V and was
attended by 338 bishops, who regarded it as
the seventh ecumenical council[13] The
Second Council of Nicea, which annulled
that of Hieria, was itself annulled at a synod
held in 815 in Constantinople under
Emperor Leo V . This synod, presided over
by Patriarch Theodotos I of Constantinople,
declared the Council of Hieria to be the
seventh ecumenical council but,
although the Council of Hieria was called by
an emperor and confirmed by another, and
although it was held in the east, it is not
now considered ecumenical.
Similarly, the Second Council of Ephesus of
449, also held in Anatolia, was called by the
Byzantine Emperor Theodosius II and,
though annulled by the Council of
Chalcedon, was confirmed by Emperor
Basiliscus , who annulled the Council of
Chalcedon. This too is not now
reckoned an ecumenical council.

Roman Catholic views on those
circumstances

The Roman Catholic Church does not
consider the validity of an ecumenical
council's teaching to be in any way
dependent on where it is held or on the
granting or withholding of prior
authorization or legal status by any state, in
line with the attitude of the 5th-century
bishops who "saw the definition of the
church's faith and canons as supremely
their affair, with or without the leave of the
Emperor" and who "needed no one to
remind them that Synodical process pre-
dated the Christianisation of the royal court
by several centuries".
The Roman Catholic Church recognizes as
ecumenical various councils held later than
the First Council of Ephesus (after which
churches out of communion with the Holy
See because of the Nestorian Schism did
not participate), later than the Council of
Chalcedon (after which there was no
participation by churches that rejected
Dyophysitism ), later than the Second
Council of Nicaea (after which there was no
participation by the Eastern Orthodox
Church), and later than the Fifth Council of
the Lateran (after which groups that
adhered to Protestantism did not
participate).
Of the twenty-one ecumenical councils
recognised by the Roman Catholic Church,
some gained recognition as ecumenical only
later. Thus the Eastern First Council of
Constantinople became ecumenical only
when its decrees were accepted in the West
also.

Now let us see in-detail about the 7councils.




List of ecumenical councils


First seven ecumenical councils

In the history of Christianity , the first seven
Ecumenical Councils, from the First Council
of Nicaea (325) to the Second Council of
Nicaea (787), represent an attempt to reach
an orthodox consensus and to unify
Christendom.
All of the original Seven Ecumenical
Councils as recognised in whole or in part
were called by an emperor of the Eastern
Roman Empire and all were held in the
Eastern Roman Empire, a
recognition denied to other councils
similarly called by an Eastern Roman
emperor and held in his territory, in
particular the Second Council of Ephesus
(449) and the Council of Hieria (754), which
saw themselves as ecumenical.
1. First Council of Nicaea (325) repudiated
Arianism, declared that Christ is
" homoousios with the Father" (of the same
substance as the Father), and adopted the
original Nicene Creed , fixed Easter date;
recognised primacy of the sees of Rome,
Alexandria and Antioch and granted the See
of Jerusalem a position of honor.


2. First Council of Constantinople (381)
repudiated Arianism and Macedonianism ,
declared that Christ is "born of the Father
before all time", revised the Nicene Creed
in regard to the Holy Spirit.


3. Council of Ephesus (431) repudiated
Nestorianism , proclaimed the Virgin Mary
as the Theotokos ("Birth-giver to God",
"God-bearer", "Mother of God"), repudiated
Pelagianism , and reaffirmed the Nicene
Creed.
This and all the following councils in this
list are not recognised by all of the Church
of the East.
Second Council of Ephesus (449)
declared Eutyches orthodox and attacked
his opponents.
Though originally convened as an
ecumenical council, this council is not
recognised as ecumenical and denounced
as a Robber Council by the
Chalcedonians (Catholics, Eastern
Orthodox, Protestants).


4. Council of Chalcedon (451) repudiated
the Eutychian doctrine of monophysitism ,
adopted the Chalcedonian Creed, which
described the hypostatic union of the two
natures of Christ, human and divine.
Reinstated those deposed in 449 and
deposed Dioscorus of Alexandria. Elevation
of the bishoprics of Constantinople and
Jerusalem to the status of patriarchates.
This is also the last council explicitly
recognised by the Anglican Communion .
This and all the following councils in this
list are rejected by Oriental Orthodox
churches.


5. Second Council of Constantinople (553)
repudiated the Three Chapters as Nestorian,
condemned Origen of Alexandria, decreed
the Theopaschite Formula.


6. Third Council of Constantinople (680–
681) repudiated Monothelitism and
Monoenergism .
Quinisext Council, also called Council
in Trullo (692) addressed matters of
discipline (in amendment to the 5th and
6th councils).
The Ecumenical status of this council was
repudiated by the western churches.


7. Second Council of Nicaea (787) restored
the veneration of icons (condemned at the
Council of Hieria , 754) and repudiated
iconoclasm .

Further councils recognised as
ecumenical in the Roman Catholic
Church
As late as the 11th century, only seven
councils were recognised as ecumenical in
the Roman Catholic Church. Then, in
the time of Pope Gregory VII (1073–1085),
canonists who in the Investiture
Controversy quoted the prohibition in
canon 22 of the Council of Constantinople
of 869–870 against laymen influencing the
appointment of prelates elevated this
council to the rank of ecumenical council.
Only in the 16th century was
recognition as ecumenical granted by
Catholic scholars to the Councils of the
Lateran, of Lyon and those that followed.

8. Fourth Council of Constantinople
(869–870) deposed Patriarch Photios I of
Constantinople as a usurper and reinstated
his predecessor Saint Ignatius . Photius had
already been declared deposed by the Pope,
an act which the Church of Constantinople
accepted at this council.

9. First Council of the Lateran (1123)
addressed investment of bishops and the
Holy Roman Emperor 's role therein.

10. Second Council of the Lateran
(1139) reaffirmed Lateran I and addressed
clerical discipline (dress, marriages).

11. Third Council of the Lateran (1179)
restricted papal election to the cardinals,
condemned simony, and introduced
minimum ages for ordination (thirty for
bishops).

12. Fourth Council of the Lateran
(1215) defined transubstantiation ,
addressed papal primacy and clerical
discipline.

13. First Council of Lyon (1245)
proclaimed the deposition of Emperor
Frederick II and instituted a levy to support
the Holy Land.

14. Second Council of Lyon (1274)
attempted reunion with the Eastern
churches, approved Franciscan and
Dominican orders, a tithe to support
crusades, and conclave procedures.

15. Council of Vienne (1311–1312)
disbanded the Knights Templar .
Council of Pisa (1409) attempted to
solve the Great Western Schism.
The council is not numbered because it
was not convened by a pope and its
outcome was repudiated at Constance.

16. Council of Constance (1414–1418)
resolved the Great Western Schism and
condemned John Hus. Also began
conciliarism.
Council of Siena (1423–1424)
addressed church reform.
Not numbered as it was swiftly
disbanded.

17. Council of Basel, Ferrara and
Florence (1431–1445) addressed church
reform and reunion with the Eastern
Churches, but split into two parties. The
fathers remaining at Basel became the
apogee of conciliarism. The fathers at
Florence achieved union with various
Eastern Churches and temporarily with the
Eastern Orthodox Church.

18. Fifth Council of the Lateran (1512–
1517) addressed church reform.

19. Council of Trent (1545–1563, with
interruptions) addressed church reform and
repudiated Protestantism, defined the role
and canon of Scripture and the seven
sacraments , and strengthened clerical
discipline and education.
Temporarily attended by Lutheran delegates.

20. First Council of the Vatican (1870)
defined pope's primacy in church
governance and his infallibility, repudiated
rationalism , materialism and atheism ,
addressed revelation , interpretation of
scripture and the relationship of faith and
reason .

21. Second Council of the Vatican
(1962–1965) addressed pastoral and
disciplinary issues dealing with the Church
and its relation to the modern world,
including liturgy and ecumenism.
Other councils that some Eastern
Orthodox individuals see as ecumenical
Eastern Orthodox catechisms teach that
there are seven ecumenical councils
and there are feast days for seven
ecumenical councils. Nonetheless,
some Eastern Orthodox consider the Council
of Constantinople of 879–880, that of
Constantinople in 1341–1351 and that of
Jerusalem in 1672 to be ecumenical:
Fourth Council of Constantinople (879–
880) restored Photius to the See of
Constantinople. This happened after the
death of Ignatius and with papal approval.
Fifth Council of Constantinople (1341–
1351) affirmed hesychastic theology
according to Gregory Palamas and
condemned Barlaam of Seminara.
Synod of Jassy (1642) reviewed and
amended the Peter Mogila 's Expositio fidei
( Statement of Faith , also known as the
Orthodox Confession).
Synod of Jerusalem (1672) defined
Orthodoxy relative to Roman Catholicism
and Protestantism, defined the orthodox
Biblical canon.
It is unlikely that formal recognition as
ecumenical will be granted to these
councils, despite the acknowledged
orthodoxy of their decisions, so that only
seven are universally recognized among the
Eastern Orthodox as ecumenical.
The Pan-Orthodox Council now being
prepared has sometimes been referred to as
a potential "Eighth Ecumenical Council".

Acceptance of the councils

Although some Protestants reject the
concept of an ecumenical council
establishing doctrine for the entire Christian
faith, Roman Catholics, Anglicans, Eastern
Orthodox and Oriental Orthodox all accept
the authority of ecumenical councils in
principle. Where they differ is in which
councils they accept and what the
conditions are for a council to be
considered "ecumenical". The relationship
of the Papacy to the validity of ecumenical
councils is a ground of controversy between
Roman Catholicism and the Eastern
Orthodox Churches. The Roman Catholic
Church holds that recognition by the Pope
is an essential element in qualifying a
council as ecumenical; Eastern Orthodox
view approval by the Bishop of Rome (the
Pope) as being roughly equivalent to that of
other patriarchs. Some have held that a
council is ecumenical only when all five
patriarchs of the Pentarchy are represented
at it. Others reject this
theory in part because there were no
patriarchs of Constantinople and Jerusalem
at the time of the first ecumenical council.

Christianity and Monotheism

'Monotheism' refers to praying to one God and believing that there is only one God. The Christians, Jews and the Islamists believe in One God. But,there is a tide which took birth from the oceans of some scholars that if Christians are monotheists then it is false because they say they believe in the TRINITY and coming up with this matter many Christians startled and again the seperation of groups took place based on the existence of the Trinity.
And in the 15th century it created a huge contraversary with the verse(s) that supported the doctrine of God ,Son and Holy Ghost are the one and then the belief in the oneness and that verse is so pointfull and in the Entire Bible it depicts the Trinity . And it is

1John 05:07;08

And the dispute on this verse finally opened a new chapter and it is called COMMA JOHANNEUM




The Comma Johanneum (or Johannine
Comma or Heavenly Witnesses) is a
comma (a short clause) in the First Epistle
of John, 1 John 5:7–8 . Its authenticity
has been a subject of debate from the early
sixteenth century. The general consensus
today is that that passage is a Latin
corruption that entered the Greek
manuscript tradition in subsequent copies.
Comma Johanneum displayed
in English, Latin, and Greek
In English, the passage in question, 1 John
5:7-8 (KJV), with the Comma in bold print,
reads:
7. For there are three that bear record
in heaven,
the Father, the Word, and the Holy
Ghost:
and these three are one.
8. And there are three that bear
witness in earth,
the spirit, and the water, and the
blood:
and these three agree in one.


In Latin it reads:
quoniam tres sunt qui testimonium dant
in caelo pater verbum et spiritus
sanctus et hi tres unum sunt et tres
sunt qui testimonium dant in terra
spiritus et aqua et sanguis et tres unum
sunt


And in Greek:
οτι τρεις εισιν οι μαρτυρουντες εν τω
ουρανω ο πατηρ ο λογος και το αγιον
πνευμα και ουτοι οι τρεις εν εισιν
και τρεις εισιν οι μαρτυρουντες εν τη
γη το πνευμα και το υδωρ και το αιμα
και οι τρεις εις το εν εισιν

Bibles that include or omit
Comma

After Erasmus included the Comma in the
1522 edition of his Greek New Testament, it
appeared in every later edition of the Greek
New Testament that came to be called
Textus Receptus. Thus the Comma is found
in the most widely-used translations of the
New Testament before 1881, when the
English Revised Version was published
without the Comma; but, from the early
18th century onwards, several individual
translators omitted it. Versions from
this period which contain it include the
Geneva Bible , the King James Version (KJV),
Young's and both the Rheims New
Testament and the Ronald Knox translations
which are Roman Catholic.
Newer critical editions of the Greek text
omitted the Comma not part of the
original and modern Bible translations
based on them such as the New
International Version (NIV), the New
American Standard Bible (NASB), the English
Standard Version (ESV), the New Revised
Standard Version (NRSV) tend to either omit
the Comma entirely, or place it in a
footnote. In the Roman Catholic
tradition, the Latin Nova Vulgata (New
Vulgate), published in 1979 following the
Second Vatican Council , based on the
Critical Text and approved for liturgical use,
does not include the Comma.Nor does
the English-language New American Bible .
The Comma is retained in recent
translations based on the Textus Receptus
such as the New King James.

■SOME MORE DETAIL OF 'COMMA JOHANNEUM'
[Article source: Gotquestions.org]
TheComma Johanneum, also known astheComma Johannine, is a textual variant in regards to1 John 5:7-8. The wordcommasimply means “short clause,” andJohanneummeans “pertaining to John.” Without the “comma,”1 John 5:7-8reads, “For there are three that testify: the Spirit, the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement.” With the “comma,”1 John 5:7-8reads, “For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.” If theComma Johanneumwas originally part of1 John5:7-8, it would be the clearest and most direct reference to the Trinity in the entire Bible.However, it is highly unlikely that theComma Johanneumwas originally a part of 1 John. Noneof the oldest Greek manuscripts of 1 John contain the comma, and none of the very early church fathers include it when quoting or referencing1 John 5:7-8. The presence of theComma Johanneumin Greek manuscripts is actually quite rare until the 15th century A.D. Itis primarily found in Latin manuscripts.

While some of the Latin manuscripts containing theComma Johanneumare ancient, theComma Johanneumdidnotappear in the original Latin Vulgate written by Jerome.In the 16th century, when Desiderius Erasmus was compiling what became known as the Textus Receptus, he did not include theComma Johanneumin the 1st or 2nd editions. Due to intense pressure from the Catholic Church and others who wanted it included because of its support for trinitarianism, Erasmus included theComma Johanneumin later editions of the Textus Receptus. His decision resulted in theComma Johanneumbeing included in the King James Version of the Bible and later in the NewKing James Version. None of the modern Greektexts (UBS 4, Nestle-Aland 27, Majority Text) contain theComma Johanneum. Of all the modern English translations, only the New King James Version includes theComma Johanneum.While it would be convenient for there to be anexplicit statement confirming the Trinity in the Bible, it is highly unlikely that theComma Johanneumwas originally a part of 1 John. Some ancient scribe, either intentionally or accidentally added it to a Latin manuscript, and then that addition was copied thousands upon thousands of times. This eventually resulted in theComma Johanneumappearing in the vast majority of Latin manuscripts. Whatever the scribe’s motives, it is absolutely wrong to add toGod’s Word. While what theComma Johanneumsays is true, it is not a God-breathed statement and does not belong in the Bible. The doctrine of the Trinity is taught and implied in many other biblical passages. If God thought an explicit mention of the Trinity was necessary, He Himself would have made sure it was in His Word.

Considering all these arguments and meaningfull articles ,a person who has decided to follow Christ must bear and carry His own cross. Jesus said this by Himself. And We must be aware of the issues which are negatively rising around us on the Bible because we are reading it and we are trying to follow it.

It is a well known fact that when two or more people reading the Bible together ,the same chapter and the same verse. Remember all are reading the same version too , the word is same and the meaning is same but the understanding between the people who are reading depends upon one ownself. The situations he/she is in and the surroundings influence and the IQ of their brain and the genes too . All these play a major role on the umderstanding of the word which is same.
No two persons thinking and way of understanding are same (even in twins this may vary) . So you get that verse in one way and i on my way. And when the group share their thoughts on how they understand the word definitely their arises a dispute. Or atleast a disagreement.

Everybody is right in their own way. No matter what how much close they are they will step back not in the arguement.
Let us consider a small example ,two persons passing through a Meat shop. And they saw there the man with knife cutting the animal. Among the two persons the first one thinks in his mind about the taste of the roast ,and the second will think of the non-violence there and the pain that animal undergoes. This is because of the principles they are raised up from the childhood and the influence of the world.
In the same way coming to the Biible we develop our own beliefs and even the faith is one we may mistake sometimes .

The scholars ,authors and all aren't perfect .They used their skills and invested hardwork and stressed their brains to think all these. And we all never seen GOD and only He knows what He wants to tell us. By the complete attention and carefull observation one can walk according to the will of the Creator. Prayer might help here, but still no two brains tally.

CONCLUSION
Talking frankly this article will never be concluded due to the hotness in it. And at some point i have to say that we all have to be aware of the fact that we are not there at the time of writings of the scripture ,so it must be the GOD himself revealed to us. It depends on us now what to believe

☎OPINIONS OF MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS

Before i think to writedown this i contacted my close ones to know what they are thinking about the groups and denominations and the beliefs they has. And fortunately all of them responded to me and didn't consider me as mad and patiently they shared what they believe.
I want to bring a close-up to their views.

Counting and respecting all of my dearest ones above , i am not sure whether my dream is achievable or not. I contacted them to know it and different persons from different world got differences in their opinions.And my friends are around the globe whom i contacted.

Finally my dream is ..i would love to hear from a Christian that he/she is just a Christian . And not saying the denomination or any group.I dream that one day i will hear the slogan WE ARE TOGETHER .
