  1. It is sad to hear this but the lady also didnt have to question his status of knowledge or get into other detail. She should have focused on the issue not the persons integrity. They both seem to lose the point. I dont think this is necessary to be on the WWW. We cant put every issue on the net. Tolerance is the key. Lets tolerate each other. Zebene should know that his power comes from his followers and should not be arrogant. Unfortunately most Ethiopians when we get to certain level whether it is in education, wealth or fame we start to be arrogant. In the mean time the lady also sound a bit arrogant.

  2. That guys is not even ‘memihir’.
    If you ask the popes, they will tell you that he not more than a ‘deacon’. When he teaches in Church , I feel like he Is preaching Marxisim and Leninism. His sound is like Derg or Woyane cadres. There is no way this individual is spritual teacher.
    Instead of teaching in Church, he is teaching in different places like schools and halls. The reason is to avoid all people who is trying to share from ‘Muday Mitsiwat’
    shame on you Ato Zebene’

    I never expected this from Memhir Zebene, he has done a lot for our Church and he should remember he did all that because the great consolator Jesus Christ chose him to, nothing more or less. As a human being, like all of us, he has made a mistake and I am sure he will correct it and will deal with the God who made him someone he is, as for the lady, she should have advised him personally and privately but whatever she did, she had all the right to partake the Most Holy Communion as its given for the redemption from our sins. What if she discussed it with her confession father and let her partake the Holy Communion? Whether she did that or not, it her own business. As a fellow Christian who has committed sins and knows transgression myself, I want to ask Memhir Zebene to restore his true self and image in front of God and the Christians who loved him including me.
    This is nothing more than another temptation by the angels of darkness to attack our beloved faith and Church.
    God Bless Ethiopia and Her Children, Amen

    YILUGNTA is an Ethiopian disease, those who are committing mistakes, looters and killers should be told to stop their deeds.

    It is unfortunate but the church is filled with woyane cadres not religious people including Gebre Medhin – the chief looter and killer

    The pdf verison isn’t readable. elias can your fix it please so that we can read it

  6. Zebene is a good communicator. But he is becoming increasingly out of the norm of our E.O.T.C. In order to be true preacher, and to carry out the Christian ministry, he has to follow what the writer points out. I know first hand what the writer describes in detail. I 100% agree with the writer that Zebene should stop abusing elders of our church as well as senior priests. He must apologize to W/O Wudenesh in public immediately. He should also stop lying such as “Abune Paulos came to my wedding uninvited”. He should stop attacking true Orthodox believers who question. I hope he will correct his mistakes and continue the good work he has started.

    Zebene is a preacher, but if he thinks he is unique, then that’s how people make big mistake in life. He accuses spiritual fathers, but people follow this guy blindly. Zebene, please know that you are nothing and stop being a Woyanne cadre of Aba Gebremedin’s puppet.

    Zebene is not even a priest. He is a self made preacher who is smart enough to take advantage of the weakened part of the church and innocent Christians.
    It alwas surprises me how People gave their money and their time for such a phoy person. He has double personlaity to lick the Pope’s shoe while he is in Ethiopia and at the same time to criticize him in USA. He is a hypocrite, Liar and a big sinner. I dare to call him “Theif”.

    Zebene is good bussness man who is taking advantage due the divison of the fathers of EOTC.Like the writer said he didn’t got his education like the others fathers of from EOTC tradional establishement or from major abnet school. He is not entitled to use “memhir”. He did not master qene, geez,zema or books of EOTC. He just attended a course in trinty seminary. He is just a deacon or kess and preacher. That is the title he need to use. The fact that he didn’t attended those abnet school he doesn’t know the value of our fathers knowledge and the respect they deserve. He is good communcatour with the deep knowldge eotc deep teachings. It is time for him to know himself and act accordingly. It is also time to convert Zebe show to EOTC Gubae on every wendsday and monday night. Not to late to learn. Zebene owes aplogy for that particluar elderly mother and gubae. He also owes aploogy all the fathers disgraced by his loose tounge. Elas thanks for posting the info.

  10. True Christans say what they believe. Zebene has never been heard denouncing the fascist regime of Meles Zenawi like Abune Petros denounced Mussoloni. Zebene is sent by the fake Patriarch Aba Diabilos (a.k.a. Abune Paulos). Unless Zebene corrects himself very soon his downfall is not far. He should be careful not to fall like Bahetawi Gebremeskel and Aba Melaku. He should also return Abune Petros’s cross to E.O.T.C.

  11. It is just sad to see such self claimed memhir taking over the church like this. my question is to followers of the church, why are you letting this happen? as far as i know, jesus did not wait to kick out the people who made the church a market place. he kicked out right away. Ethiopian orthodox church is the base of our identity and culture, this person should not be allowed to place his feet in that church. our church is not a place for cadres and dictator servants. follwers should protect the diginity of the church and religion fathers and kick this man out of this chuch.

  12. Why all of you make it a big deal. This so called Memhir is a JERK. he does not respect his father in law and his attitude is I-know-it-all. As all of you know all arrogant individuals think they are smarter than everyone.

    Please don’t wait to speak until someone we know hurt. Let’s feel when other fellow ethiopians hurt too. Zebene’s character is the same now and then but the writer couldn’t open his eyes and see because nobody he knows hurt this Ethiopian behavior is benefited woyanne. That’s why we can’t defeat woyanne.

    In my opinion Zebene is typical manifestation of the rulers of the current Ethiopian Church, such as as Aba Gebremedhne (Aba Diabilos), Abune Gebriel(Ato Eyasu),Aba Sereke, Abune Kewstose, etc… Aba Gebremedhene, the illegitimate Patriarch promotes opportunism, personal enrichment and theft in our church. I think Zebene is following his role models and benefactors in the current E.O.T.C. hierarchy in Ethiopia. One day his staunch supporters will realize their unconditional support helped his abuse of authority.

  16. If memhir Zebene did this as the writer put it, I do believe that he should seek appology from the mother. But I don’t like the TONE of the writer. For me, he seems to have a mission of aggravating the problem and he seems jelous.

    Well I am not happy what had happen between Memehir Zebene and the lady however most of you here might have a hidden agenda some of you might be the enemy of the Ethiopian Orthodox church I am sure some of you can be Pente Qostes or protestant members who might have been happy on the situation, because most of the time many Penete qoste people had never been directly chalenged as Memhir Zebene did as a result now you think you have the upper hand if you like or not I am 100% sure one Zebene knows about the bible better than all the north American Protestant Ethiopian so called pastors all put together, however if the story is true Zebene has done mistake nevertheless it would not reduce his deep knoledge about the true original and thousands of years old bible or the ancient bible, remember your protestant westernized bible was started by Luther 400 years ago who was a Catholic Monk. I will also listen his teaching eagerly. So all you converts go to your cage and read your incomplete watered down westernized version of the bible. By the way, did pastor Tamirat Lane started his church yet.

    This message it to all of you that truly believe you are Christians, followers of Christ.
    Read your Bibles and make up your minds and decisions by the word of God. Humans are fallacious; we have seen enough preachers, ministers, priests, bishops, popes, etc. etc… that have disgraced themselves and the house of God by the love of money, fame, drugs, prostitution, etc… ad infinitum. I have read the many comments you all made, some naive, some honest, some deceitful and some completely mislead. Don’t worship people; worship God! “Thou shall have no other gods before me” Commandment #1. The lessons you learn whether from Zebene or anyone else, try to prove by going to God’s word. Zebene as many had alluded is a charismatic teacher, but he gets carried away and he sometimes forgets he is teaching God’s word. He prides himself by how much knowledge and intelligence he has and tries to impress people and get the glory for himself instead of giving it to God. What ever our lot, if we serve God, it is because we want to bring glory to the name of the Lord and certainly not to ourselves. The comments above about his teachings, about Abune Paulos, Mahibere Kidusan, Woyane are interesting to say the least. Woyane, Aba Paulos and Mahibere kidusan have created havoc on the Ethiopian Churches in Ethiopia and the Diaspora. We have seen and read about these Churches in Colorado, California, Ohio, Atlanta, Florida, etc. and currently one of the oldest Diaspora Churches the Dallas St. Michael Church. The trouble this Church is in is unbelievable. I will let you read for yourselves some of the blogs written by the groups mentioned above and Zebene’s Aunt Woizero Emebet Dubale and her Husband Ato Bekele Tekle and their supporters who have sued the Church in order to take it over and give it to Woyane and Aba Paulos. Also, read what the opposing side writes to get a glimpse of what is going on. Let us not judge anyone before we see their work. God is the judge of all judges. He pays every one of us justly according to our deeds. I ask every Christian that aches for the Church and feels the pain of the servants of God to pray for this Church’s freedom and peace and for the courts to see the evil in this people and stand on God’s side.

  20. woizero wude the lady who clamed that he disrespect her what about her disrepecting the church the congrigation by geting the church issue to public instad of solving her problem in the church. that is what respected elderly people do as an Ethiopian and who had “longer experience serving a church”. “edmewon yewoku” you wrote the comment or one of your “adegdagis”. Don’t forget the prist who gave you the comunion washed his hands and prayed saying I’m not responsible for your sin by tacking the comunion knowing that you are not suppose too (which they do in everys kidasie). “Telat kewichi aymetam” you and your people cant sleep to dismantel the churcha and OTHODOX TEWAHIDO CHURCH. it will never happen you are old, it is better for you to pray and sleep peacfully a women like you should pray for every one of us and the world. I sujust that you have to come to your sanses and appologise to every one you disrespected you owe many people an aplogy we know that and you know it.
    The writer who ever he is I’m sorry for him or her you should read what you wrote again that is a shme for a person who gose to church using those kinds of words. I think you need to get christining again.
    The other person who compared Memiher Zebene with your jimy swaggart I don’t believe you even sayed it, jelusy is killing you because he reached all who needed GODs words, who were hungry to know what ORTHODOX TEWAHIDO means his words, his voce is all over the world sorry if you cant tack it; but it is the only trouth jelusy is denger I or no one can help you.
    Our$2.oo or $5.00donation never pays the radio which is the best thing happen for you and us, the bible study for who can’t make it to the church on monday and wednsdays. and so many other eshues, what is hapning to you people do you even know what you are talking about???? GODs word can be preached under a tree or any where he is trying to reach his gol which is to preach GODs words all over the world, by accomodating people who do not have transportation or time to go to church every sunday, why are you trying to be on his way? what is your misson? we can cmfront any of your bible questions know thanks to memeher, is taht what you are scard of?
    Memiher you did it. cntinue your great job we are with you any time. I know you will never give up but you need our support big time.
    it is a given in our new generation when you do some thing posetive they have to pull you down till they see you on the groud. Ok they can do it for poletics not with our ORTHODOX TEWAHIDO no way. saying any thing agenest our church or its survers it is the same that you are tuching the fallowers.This has to STOP!!! this is not about emama wude or Zebene this is about our fath our church and all.
    Elias I’m sorry you shouldn’t post this it doesn’t look like you.

    The first writer all what you wrot goeseto you not to Memiher Zebene I think you should read it again.it is some how a good thing you started it.you are gone try every chance you got to come to his way. we will never allow you to do so. you will be asked one day for all the things you are saying and this is not an easy accusation you better be carefull.
    Like elderly, and an “respected” ethiopiandont expose your self you need to come to your sense start praying for what you sayed before what you are saying now and for the future.
    I’m sorry for you and your guys
    GOD Bless our church and people like you who betrayed our church.
    Dingelmariam kegna gar nat
    Ye Ethiopia Amlak kegnagar yehun
    Beyegedamatu yemitseliulin abatoch tselot yeketelen.
    AMEN!!!

  22. HAILETSION on

    it is mind boggling though it is vivid that no one is infallible so is Memhir Zebene. I stand no position but i want to say that he should repent soon otherwise shrewdness is the bygone business.
    May God Bless us all and keep our church from fragmentation and fragility.
