Questions from a Presbyterian
Hi again Adithia.

Please do not use Ashur Soro as a representative of the CoE. He was laicized by the Holy Synod of the Church of the East, and no longer carries the title of "Mar". He was stripped of all apostolic authority and is neither an Assyrian CoE representative, nor an authority on our dogma. He in no way speaks for our tradition. He is currently a Chaldean.

And no, just because the CoE accepted the Nicene council, that does not mean we were under the authority of the Roman/Byzantine church. The decrees of Nicea were brought to us nearly 80 years after the proceedings, and we did accept them out of courtesy to our Western Brethren (not out of necessity).

There has never been ecclesiastical communion with the Roman Church, nor will there ever be as I said, as long as that formula demands the acceptance of any primacy of a bishop over the Catholicos of Babylon, HH Mar Dinkha. Your explanation of "servant" in reference to how Rome views its role is, frankly, insulting to our intelligence. I know you mean well, but please review the history of Papal Primacy.

Again, this is a non issue and will never occur within that framework. We shall remain independent as we have always been. We do not need the Romans nor the OO, and we especially do not need the EO.

Take care
