I had a conversation with a priest from a greek orthodox church and he asked me what church I went to, I told him I go to a coptic orthodox church. He told me that the coptic church back than was ex communicated from the orthodox church based on a certain confusion between the churches. He said the copts used to believe that Jesus and God and the holy spirit were just one and not 3 combined in one. He also stated thats why the copts used to make the sign of the cross with one finger and not like the other orthodox churches with 3 fingers combined in one. It seems confusing to me does anyone have information about this subject and the history so that we may get a clear understanding of this whole situation. Does anyone have clear documented information about this whole situation and the status now, cause this seems like a big deal to be excommunicated from the orthodox church.
