I am a convert to the Coptic Orthodox Church. I was raised a pentecostal, but saw the errors of my church when studying some of the Church fathers writings.
A Question many people face is what does it mean when I say I am Coptic Orthodox?
Many people say that If your baptised Coptic Orthodox it makes you a Copt, i consider this Hogwash.
What am I?
I am an Australian Orthodox Christian. I attend a Coptic Orthodox Church because They Hold the keys of Salvation. I will never be a Copt, I am an Australian.
What frustrates me is that alot of those raised in the Church Confuse the Rite (Coptic) with the Culture (Copt). Its a problem which is causing alot of converts to stumble.
What are your thoughts?
