Servants of God deserve to be treated with fairness and truth.
Mullakkara sir is praying for sick people.
What is wrong with this?
He is also feeding the hungry in orphanages, publishing inspiring books, articles, bulletins, and magazines.
What is wrong with that?
He is uplifting the depressed people with fervent prayer. He is fasting and praying for financial, mental, and demonic bondages to be broken.
What is wrong with such prayer and spiritual activities?
All may not get healed by his prayers. All may not be uplifted psychologically. But Mullakkara sir is not withdrawing when he does not see the results.
I am glad we have a few people like him who blindly trusts God and pray whether God performs miracles or not.
Mullakkara sir was a well-salaried teacher. He gave up his employment to spend more time for religious work. There is wisdom to be gained from this aged man who probably is at least sixty years old.
His reward in heaven will be great, because he may be suffering a lot of mental anguish in his effort to expand the Kingdom of God. Certainly, when people accuse him for everything, it is natural for him to feel hurt. Nowadays, people are criticizing him for how he prays, how he sits, how he walks, how loud he speaks, how long he speaks, etc.
Some may accuse him of hoarding money, but without evidence to prove financial mismanagement. Such unfounded accusations also cause a lot of pain and shame. He may even get blamed for mistakes his associates or team members commit.
If he is engaged in gimmicks, deceptive techniques, financial dishonesty, money misappropriations, false reports, or exaggerated testimonies, he needs to be exposed and rebuked. If he is challenging sincere criticisms and repeating any gimmicks, he must be rebuked publicly, so innocent people would not fall into the snare of manipulations.
I will post without fear if verified reports of financial dishonesty or manipulative techniques are connected to Mullakkara directly or indirectly.
So far, I have not received any verifiable accusations.

Traveling and preaching are not easy to do. Packing up, traveling in cars, buses, trains, and airplanes cause much tiredness. Preaching to large crowds and then praying sincerely for hundreds of people deplete a lot of energy. Evangelists become almost life-less after a couple of nights of loud preaching and altar calls. മേലനങ്ങി പണിയെടുക്കണ്ടല്ലോ. Speaking and teaching are physical labors that exhaust a person. Ask any teacher or preacher.
Many preachers and teachers suffer headaches, muscular pains, and backaches very often.
For twenty-two years from 1979 to 2001, I used to travel on weekends. When I return home Sunday late night, I fall on my bed completely depleted of all energies --- with swollen throat caused by cold-virus gotten from sick people in the airplanes. It takes at least two days of rest after every convention to regain my energy.
People think it is an easy job to preach. It is not.
There is a lot of strain on the physical body when an evangelist travels every day and prays for people every hour.
My understanding is that Mr. Mullakkara sir is using his donations to help the needy.
He has to maintain his personal expenses including the maintenance of his family. He needs a lot of money to keep his gospel work in a progressive momentum.
A shepherd deserves to enjoy the milk from the cow and the goat. So, it is not wrong to collect donations from his well-wishers.

Dear Dr. Samkutty,
I appreciate your concern for God's servants!
But where are these so-called Evangelists (Miracle men) compared to the real Apostles and Evangelists mentioned in the bible?
How much money do you collect from the sheep and cows for your ministries?

You know we had our local Inter-denominational Malayalee prayer meetings in Louisiana started first at my home in 1991. I led it for six years from 1991 May to 1997 April, conducted many times in my own house. Also, house to house cottage meetings in other Keralite homes.
You know that four Catholic medical doctors(MDs) attended our prayer meetings every weekend. Two librarians and technicians attended regularly. One Catholic priest (Father Rubin) attended frequently. Also, one Hindu professor and his family attended regularly. The Hindu also invited us to hold cottage meetings in his house occasionally.
We had six families and three research-student-families from Kerala ----total eight families.
In six years, we met on weekends more than 300 times. Most of the time, I prepared the sermons and Bible studies. I also led the song and worship. I prepared the transliterations of about fifty Malayalam songs for our American-born teenagers.
But never did we take any offering----not even one time in six years.
Only once did we collect donations for the flood victims in North India. That money I did not even touch---- but gave to Catholic Priest Father Rubin achen to be sent to India.
I have never ever accepted one dollar in six years. No one even offered money to me because they were sure I would not accept any reward for my free service.
Babu, you have also taught for our weekend meetings a few times free. You never expected anything. I did not give you any money for your wonderful sermons and teachings.
So I am amazed at your question --- "How much money do you collect from the sheep and cows for your ministries?"
When I used to travel to speak in out-of-town convention in America and Canada, I used to accept honorariums(cheques) from churches. But I spent the same money in the same cities to mail free books, free sermon tapes, and CDs.
My answer to you is that in six years, I never collected a single dollar from any Malayalee in Louisiana.
The Bible permits us to enjoy the milk from the cows and the goat we feed. However, I did my services all six years free of any charges. My wife made the house ready for all people and prepared refreshments voluntarily.
We were much blessed by God. So it was not a big deal to offer free services for the Kingdom of God.
When we had prayer meetings in Dr. Cyriac Lukes' house, his wife Dr. Leelamma(M.D.) always cooked us rice and curries. So you remember, we gave her the nickname "Malayalee Mother Theresa."
You remember, some Saturday nights we stayed in Luke's house until midnight learning and singing Malayalam songs while our small children played in the warm swimming pools behind his house.

George Koshy Look at the way in which Mr. Mullakkara is sitting while praying for the sick? That is total disrespect to God, I think !

Dear Babu and Shaji,
Thank you for your observation.
Yes, I don’t blame you for interpreting Mullakaara’s relaxed sitting posture as a sign of disrespect. However, please consider another interpretation.
Mullakkara sir travels every day and prays for hundreds of people on a daily basis. He is probably too exhausted physically to stand up for a long time and pray. Mullakkara may have “a thorn in the flesh” --- backache. So, let us be considerate when he sits down in a relaxed posture in order to pray or people.
