  • my question:does anyone have a link to the arabic lyrics ofاننا فدينا  تعل  (inna fadeyna ta'ala)i tried st-takla.org, but did not find it, maybe i am spelling it wrong. the english lyrics have 'because of His amazing love' in the chorus, but i woul…
  • i am no expert, but i'll try no. 5:the aims of fasting and of singing church hymns are slightly different.we fast in order to discipline our bodies and obtain help from God to overcome the sin that tries to attack us.we sing in order to learn more a…
  • always beware of the opinions of 'historians and scholars'!i know (personally) a protestant PhD scholar who has written his thesis on the Holy Communion.he disagrees with a lot of orthodox opinion, and when I looked what historical sources he was us…
  • only God knows what happened.may His will be done, and may the people who have suffered be comforted by His light and His truth.
  • ok, i often wondered where the extra vowels came from!i thought i was singing wrongly!well, i know i make many mistakes in coptic hymns, but now i know this is not one of them!:)
  • there will be a coptic church in romania? pls tell me more... sorry if i derail yr thread, feel free to move my 'non usa' comments to a separate section. can't help smiling at anba angaelos though, glad he will be in uk long term.
  • how accurate is this website? is it official enough now to congratulate anba angels (of uk) who I will see soon? sorry I don't understand the usa politics but i pray u will all have love, peace and tolerance. anba karas was the first orthodox priest…
  • both. good to 'see' u here :)
  • yes, preparing for death is a great way to live your life.do you have access to any of the coptic orthodox liturgies in your language?if so, reading these give all the answer you need.if not, try here:www.copticchurch.net/topics/liturgy/liturgy_of_s…
  • very well said :)
  • you only 'loose' salvation if u 'had' it in the first place. 2 peter 1 verse 10 and revelation 2 verse 7 make it clear that we need to make our salvation sure by overcoming the evil one. romans 8 verse 39 reassures us that no evil force can take thi…
  • maybe the denominations are being used as proxy arguments when the real differences are the usual marital stresses. may God guide u to be filled with love, submit to God and resist the devil. then the evil one will flee
  • thanks, i will check it out, have not seen it before

  • does anyone have a recording of pi oik (the bread) in english with the words spaced out in an english way? i mean like 'o-o-f l-i-i-fe' and not 'o-o-o-o oflife'. in fact does anyone have any recordings at all of any good orthodox Christian songs…

  • all images have only limited usefulness.for exemple, if the kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, it does not mean all Christians make great pilau rice (with mustard, cumin etc.) but it means that it looks small but grows into something very big…
  • sorry, saw this bit late, hope it went well, stay close to Godoujai khen epChois:)
  • please pray and we will pray for u. please also see your doctor as it sounds like u are very low and a trip to the doctor can often help
  • see john 15:26 and orthodoxwiki/Filioque adding something to the nicene creed (which was agreed by all the churches including the roman church) was unnecessary. the correct way to alter the creed would have been to summon an international (eccumeni…
  • are u looking for comfort like many people in developed countries? do u read gossip (eg. about other churches?) are u part of the problem or part of the solution? do u go 2 church to seek something familiar or do u go 2 learn how to die for Christ?…
  • let the bishops do their work and we should do our work. eg. if u have transport and time, you can visit other orthodox churches in your neighbourhood from time to time. make friends there. if u are the only orthodox Christian in your village, you …
  • it is from the septuagint and very, very reliable. if you doubt it, it is like saying you think cocoa is fake because it does not taste sweet like chocolate! you are used to the massoretic text, but the septuagint is closer to the old testament quo…
  • binC, hello! long time no 'see'. happy new year :)
  • most eastern orthodox Christians are lovely, spend less time on the internet and you will find them :)
  • what most people are saying is that you should either change your religion because you believe that is the correct faith, and stay with that religion even if you don't marry this lady,or marry someone from your religion (if you don't want to change …
  • i agree, but maybe a few people should still speak arabic in order to help the rest of the world know Gods' love. it is a very useful language, even if you don't know it well!
  • first pray to God and ask Him to lead u to all fullness. then go to an orthodox church and listen and pray. most churches in english speaking countries are either in english or have translation on the screen. read a bit of church history. the church…
  • thank you so much for linking that, thanks to God for His grace all over the world
  • top tip:talk to real life EOs about this. the ones that aren't on the internet are much more accepting, especially once they see you and see your sincere faith when you visit their church.(exception being menas17, thanks for your lovely comments - i…
  • thanks for that, khas, great work.good to 'see' you again
