  • Posting because I have nowhere else to go, I'm sorry. - neither have I, that's why I visit the forum here Coptic male in his 20s, nearly graduated college. All through college I've felt alone and isolated - not socially, I have made friendships t…
  • God has a plan for each one of us. We have free will to choose what we want to do. But God is all knowing so he is not surprised. And any evil that happens in the world only happens if God permits it. Look back at Job's story in the Old Testament..t…
  • I'm not sure, but very intriguing questions that I could not verbalise myself! Just one comment, I thought we do not believe in predestination in christianity
  • Nobody is living in sin. So harsh of you to say that here. This is a married couple who need a little faith, that's all. Stop judging and diverting from the main topic. Offer solutions for the presenting problems, not the "would've should've could'v…
  • From the information given in this thread, I'd say what you can do is pray and be the good father that you want to be. I am assuming if divorce is involved, there will be a custody agreement? When you have the kids with you, go to church, talk to th…
  • How could you know "God didn't accept you anymore"? That is never true. God is accepting you and waiting for you always. I don't understand, did you not get married in any church at all? Is your husband a practising christian? What is your relation…
  • I didn't watch the video, but to be honest, (I am coptic) copts did not do a good job at keeping their country..we were humiliated by Turks and Arabs till this very day. Just imagine how life would have been if egypt was an orthodox country!!! Look …
  • According to the bible, the ones who believes that Jesus Christ is the son of God. We cannot possibly try to guess who is going to heaven (if that's what you mean by who is christian). We will be judged based on our knowledge. If you know what is …
  • Please do not quote me on this, but I think if your ex is not christian that would be a reason to become eligible for marriage in church? I wish I knew more about this, but it is almost on a case by case basis, and clergy usually need evidence abo…
  • Of course God accepts you. He accepts anyone who comes to Him. I am sorry to hear about your pain. With regards to your question about being single, are you asking whether you can come back to God on your conditions? Give yourself wholly to God an…
  • I don't know if any exist, but feel free to ask questions here
  • Hello, The feelings of guilt that you are having can be destructive and may be from the devil. You have repented, you have confessed, it is done. God forgave you. The devil's aim is to let you self-destruct by pushing you down. Every time you exp…
  • Hi Pomegranate, it's been a few months since you posted this so I hope things are better by now. Since its Valentine's Day already, I wish everyone a happy Valentine's Day. For you and for anybody who can relate to this. It is okay to want to be lo…
  • Hello, You may get so many replies with the message "orthodox all the way or no relationship". I know of a couple where the guy is originally Protestant and the lady's family is Catholic...both were born in Egypt. They are together and they only go…
  • Merry Christmas

  • Be careful about trying to make these kind of decisions. Monastic life is not any less complicated than ordinary life. There is great corruption among monks and fight for leadership (I am being blunt, the truth has to be said). The monasteries are r…

  • Tobit, you have gone completely off topic
  • Hi, I just wanted to say that I am sorry you have to go through this. Unfortunately pain is inevitable. And who know, this may be your only chance for love. (I am also female, similar age) To love is to sacrifice. To love God...(I'll let you decid…
  • I don't understand why couples fight so much to have children when biologically everything is saying "no". Why can't people just be more open minded. It is probably for the best that they can't conceive (e.g. If either parent is passing on congenita…
  • Ophadece, Please do not pick on people who ask questions on this forum. Nobody asked for a grammar and spell check. Reading your message, I felt it was hostile. No need to ask why and say "again" in capital letters. We don't tell people off here an…
  • Just because someone has suicidal thoughts, they don't have to act on them. Many people who suffer with this (and the thoughts may not stop) learn to ignore the thoughts or deal with them in different ways. This is not the time to tell someone "god…
  • Your post brought tears to my eyes :') Good for you Khas!
  • Who's becoming a nun?
  • Nobody can help with this type of issue. I know how you feel! But to be frank, I think you wish someone would tell you "go ahead, be like the rest". But no, no one is going to say that. And moreover, you can't be like them even if you try. It's just…
  • I hope God consoles your soul, strengths you and makes you whole
    in Help Comment by mnc_hnn April 2014
  • Hang in there. Feel free to leave everything on the table and go for a walk or relax for even 30mins. It doesn't solve the problems but you need to deal with the stress also as that is not going to help with the health. I hope God resolves all you…

  • What happens between someone dying and judgement day? Is it better off for those who don't have to wait a long time after death until the end if the world?
  • I'm sorry I don't understand even when you used the other translation. Why is the heart deceitful? Thanks for the advice about bible versions although it is not convenient for me as I just read from an app. I find the international version easier …
  • Hi, I just read through all the posts in this old thread as the title felt very familiar. I was wondering if any of you would share an update on whether things have changed? Because for me, I have been suffering with loneliness for a few years now…
  • All the posts here never considered the wellbeing of the children in this marriage. It can be emotionally scarring for children who are raised up in an environment polluted with hate and resentment. More damage occurs than due to parental separatio…
