Nothing is strong George. Again you come up with a lame mallu agenda, that they ceased to exist like North India. I have heaps of logical supports to say that St. Thomas was not burried in Mylapore, and it would be offending to many that he never came to India. I have been to Malayatoor church couple of times and the Apostle’s foot depicted at the lower end of the church always amazed me. It was something of a man of atleast of the size of 12ft. The Cathedral of Ortona where the relics of St. Thomas were shifted from Edessa in 1144 AD bear testimony of a silver bust of St. Thomas which contained his skull which bear the size of a normal human being.
Thomas Mount at Mylapore bears a white dove on the top, six petals facing downwards and six petals facing upwards at the bottom of the cross signifying light world (petals facing upwards), and dark world (petals facing downwards). These are evidences that this cross is not the one used by St Thomas. Moreover the writings on the cross are in Pahlavi language (Persian), which is neither the language spoken by St. Thomas nor the local language (Tamil)
So if St. Thomas could build up a vast empire of Christians in kerala with in 12 years, why he couldn’t he do any thing substantial in 8 years in Mylapore? These are simple questions no Theologians want to answer.
About me, I am a strict follower of Jesus but not its corrupt institutions and leaders. Also I live in a very free country where episodes like “bloody marry” can be aired with no barriers.
