  • I do not think they are martyrs. Here's why:  If they were warned that going to Church will result in them being killed FOR THE SOLE purpose of their faith, then yes, they are martyrs.  We know, as Copts, that a taxi cab will not drive you outside t…
  • Who honestly cares about this? Let's say it's true. So what? Let's say it's false. So what?? The accusation sounds childish. I know we have problems in our church, and I know that bishops can do crazy things, but why is this of anyone's busine…
  • Why would anyone with any common sense convert to this stupid Islamic religion?? I disagree with all the comments. Islam is a religion for terrorists. Go to daesh and find yourself a sex slave and leave this poor christian girl alone.
  • No. The Coptic church should grow stronger. I'm very very proud to mention I'm Coptic. Everyone I know loves our history, our sufferings , our story. Islam has really made the Coptic church shine.
  • I think we should all start learning Coptic as a language in its own right.
  • Thank you for sharing this story. Can you tell me in one sentence what the problem is??
  • Thank you Mina for that clarification. Can you explain more about the spirit?? How does it or when does it enter the body? Do all humans have spirits?? Is the consciousness the spirit or the soul???
  • Hello, I just wanted to say that I thought your post was really awesome - down to earth, honest, and sincere. I think sexual sins is something everyone has grappled with also; some to more extents than others.  I think what you need is good Christia…
  • @Aelwyn82 Hello. That's interesting. I'm grappling with the idea that there is sexuality in heaven. When souls go to heaven, does a soul have a sexuality? Do we remain male or female when we die?
  • Hello @Minatasgeel, -- Firstly, in Islam, the virgins that exist make no sense. How can sexuality exist in heaven?? How can sex exist if sexuality doesn't exist? So that makes no sense. -- @Minasoliman: the 5 wise and 5 foolish virgins are just part…
  • Do we have virgins in heaven? and if so - what is their purpose?
  • its not right for anyone to ask you to change your religion. Having said that, if you are catholic I refuse to accept that you change religions if you go to the Coptic Church.  Your baptism ought to be accepted already.  This is an insane situation.…
  • I think the easiest option for our youth is for them to get married young. Why not? I find even in our rich communities, where parents are loaded with money, their kids tend to wait until their mid 30's to get married.Its surprising to see our kids …
  • Also, I forgot to add something. If he told he had sex with 1 girl in the past, and now he tells you it was actually 4 girls in total; then how much could it be further down the road? Are you SURE you can handle these thoughts?
  • Hi,I think there is some good lectures on line about sex addiction. You should try to listen to these online. We have some by our Coptic Church (e.g. Dr Nabil Baky) or there are others who are evangelical Christians who can also help you. Looking at…
  • HiWell now: Mina soliman gave good advice here. If you speak to abouna, I can tell you exactly what the priest will say:a) Has he repented for his past?b) Has he tried anything with you? Has he shown self control with you?c) You may need to know why…
  • What does your mother suggest??
  • No Christians and Muslims DO NOT worship the same God; because we cannot know God unless we know Jesus Christ. If we accept the Son, then we accept the Father. We cannot know the Father without knowing the Son.  If Muslims do NOT accept Christ as th…
  • @Severian: Hello. Can you tell me briefly how their soteriological views differ from ours?? Its precisely this topic that I need to know. Just for everyone's information, I'm building a PPT presentation for Christian Apologetics to help not only def…
  • I know many priests who like to match-make. They are A.Do.Ra.BLE!!! They tried it with me once. hehe.. it was great. Best time ever. 
  • What religion / faith/ denomination is or was your boyfriend?
  • ShareTheLord,you have in no way answered my question. You seem more concerned that I do not hate muslims. I DO NOT HATE THEM. That would be pointless, wrong, immoral and basically defeats the whole purpose of being a Christian anyway. The question w…
  • I really hate the rap we have with Muslims. Once someone finds out that I'm Coptic, they start Islam-bashing as if I'm going to jump in.lol.. I love everyone, including muslims. There are muslims I get along with, some I hate; but whether a muslim l…
  • Father Peter,Excellent website. You've already written about issues that are quite relevant to me in the website (you just need a section on Evolution & creationism). I love your writing style. This is a fact. You are a good communicator. Whethe…
  • How are we to view the BOC and Anba Seraphim? Are we still meant to kiss his hand? or refer to him as "sayedna"??
  • Guys,  Something fishy is going on here. 
  • Dear AntoniousNikolas, Out of everything i've read so far, what you stated is by far the most reasonable and mature comment.  I totally agree. As far as i'm concerned, I will kiss Anba Seraphim's hand if I see him and treat him as if he's a normal O…
  • Hi Severian, I'm just curious, but before they became part of our Church, what were they? Were they just men pretending to be Orthodox? Or were they already ordained Catholic priests who adopted Orthodoxy?
  • Thanks Fr Peter for clarifying. I just got your last statement after I typed mine (above) You said: The British Orthodox became canonically Orthodox only when they united with the Coptic Orthodox Church. To separate from Orthodoxy and to explicitly …
  • I typed this before I got Fr Peter's answer.  I think the statement from Fr Peter may help others understand this: The British Orthodox became canonically Orthodox only when they united with the Coptic Orthodox Church. To separate from Orthodoxy and…
