The Cathedral Church of the Resurrection, Lahore

History of Cathedral Church of Ressurection, Lahore

The Cathedral Church of the Resurrection is an Anglican cathedral in the heart of Lahore, Pakistan. It was built on The Mall in 1887, opposite the Lahore High Court. Emperor Akbar granted formal permission for the construction of a church near the fort in 1595. On the order of Emperor Jahangir, it was closed in 1614. Ten years later, the church was re-opened but in 1632, on the orders of the Emperor Shah Jehan it was demolished, even though various missions continued to live and preach in Lahore. Two centuries later, the church was again established at Lahore by the British. Today the Cathedral Church of the Resurrection, Lahore is the center of the Lahore Diocese, which was carved out of the Diocese of Calcutta, the largest Anglican diocese in South Asia, in 1877, which included the area up to Delhi, East Punjab, Kashmir, Afghanistan, with some responsibility for the southern states of the Persian Gulf.

Threat to The Church, Today

PML(N) Government actions has always been anti-minorities, whenever they get a chance, they stealthily initiate anti-minorities actions. Latest action in line is the alignment of Orangeline Train. Government planners has kept alignment in such a way that four oldest churches of Lahore are under threat. As per Government plan, Cathedral Church of Resurrection, Lahore will now house Sewerage Disposal Station of this area, what a brilliant planning. The idea of disposing sewer in any place of worship is as dirty as Government hidden agenda towards minorities. What Punjab Government has done with youth of Yohanabad, Lahore is still a souring wound and now government is hell bent to deface the oldest churches of Lahore.

We strongly condemn the defacing and conversion of christian churches into sewerage disposal stations and also request World Community join hand to save minorities from being pray of systematic discrimination. We also request saner elements in Government to amend the plan, so that hawks should not successfully attack minorities in garb of projects like Orangeline Train.

“Emperor Shah Jehan demolished this Church and it reemerged as a Cathedral, we strongly believe that the God will carve a way to subvert this evil plan into something good for us. Amen”

Codex Sinaiticus

Earliest Bible

The 4th century Codex Sinaiticus manuscript (“the Sinai Book”) is one of the most important texts in Christianity, dating to the time of Constantine the Great. The Codex Sinaiticus Project is an international collaboration to reunite the entire manuscript in digital form and make it accessible to a global audience for the first time. The photographs of the book’s pages show not just the written text but also an English translation accompanies the original Greek, skeletal imprints, insect bites, scar tissue and spilled candle wax. Codex Sinaiticus is one of the most important books in the world. Handwritten well over 1600 years ago, the manuscript contains the Christian Bible in Greek, including the oldest complete copy of the New Testament. The Project gives everyone the opportunity to connect directly with this famous manuscript. The New Testament appears in the original vernacular language (koine) and the Old Testament in the version, known as the Septuagint, that was adopted by early Greek-speaking Christians. Codex Sinaiticus comprises just over 400 large leaves of prepared animal skin, each of which measures 380mm high by 345mm wide. On these parchment leaves is written around half of the Old Testament and Apocrypha (the Septuagint), the whole of the New Testament, and two early Christian texts not found in modern Bibles. The codex is now split into four unequal portions: Read the rest of this entry

The Holy BibleThere is a misconception created deliberately by many other religions and sects that the “Holy Bible” has been changed. This concept is generally advocated and promoted by those who want to protect and justify dichotomy in there own beliefs. If they start telling and preaching that the Holy Bible is available in its original form, there own religious foundation may get a big jolt and many truths of the Holy Bible will be difficult for them to swallow. Actually the proven truth is that the Holy Bible is same and every portion of bible is available in original form, as was available at the time of compilation of Bible. The history of compilation bible is discussed below:-

Faith Faith Healing

Webster definition of Faith Healing is “a way of treating diseases by using prayer and religious faith” and  Medical Definition of Faith Healing is “a method of treating diseases by prayer and exercise of faith in God”.  In ancient Egypt and Greece, temples erected to Asclepius, the Greek god of medicine have been located as far apart as Ancyra in Asia Minor and Agrigentum in Sicily in 293 BC. In Christianity, faith healing is exemplified especially in the miraculous cures brought by Jesus (40 healing are recorded) and by his Apostles.

Nepal

Nepal’s first democratic election was held in 2008, after a bloody civil war led by Maoist guerrillas overthrew the Hindu monarchy. But seven years later, Nepal is yet to complete its transition to a secular democracy by declaring its new constitution. Nepal is a country dominated by Hindus and Buddhists, therefore minorities are under constant threat from extremists, mostly supported by fundamentalists from neighboring countries.

According to the 2011 census,

  1. 81.3% of the Nepalese population was Hindu
  2. 9.0% was Buddhist
  3. 4.4% was Muslim
  4. 3.0% was Kiratist(indigenous ethnic religion)
  5. 1.42% was Christian
  6. 0.9% follow other religions or no religion
