If a group prays in Coptic and without understanding, can this be called prayer? Isn't it more a chanting of various sounds and syllables? What is the point of praying in language you don't understand? Can this please God?
Praying more than 20 % in Coptic (if you don't understand it), is pointless. Yet, time and again I'll go to various churches and services with a lot of Coptic.
People wonder why the youth know little about the church...it's because many of her teachings can be found in the hymns, but they can't understand them!!
People wonder why Protestant music is popular among COCs...it's because the hymns have become just cool songs in Coptic with awesome hazzat!!
Why aren't we praying predominantly in English?! I want to understand.
It seems that people who like to pray in Coptic (and don't understand the language) want to do so because it "sounds better"...
