  • @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…
  • Fr Peter, With all due respect, if you read Kahan's statement, he deduced , as well as myself,and most likely everyone else, that the BOC has only parted from the Coptic Orthodox Patriarchate; not from Orthodoxy. Yes, I read the statement from the B…
  • Dear Fr Peter, I felt it was relevant as perhaps it means that Copts cannot have communion at the BOC?  If Copts can still have communion at the BOC, then great. 
  • Very very sad news.  The reason why this has happened needs to be made public. It has ramifications: it means we are most likely not allowed to have communion at the BOC.  Is that the case? What's going on?? 
  • Thanks CoptiCopa for your relentless effort. I know its been hard talking to people on this forum. I apologise on their behalf for their rudeness and accusations. You've been very brave, articulated, educated, and brilliant in your responses. Since …
  • Hi Coptic Girl, I really liked Qawe's response. I would have to agree with him. Even, I may add this: let's say he is the right one for you and he still benefits from marrying you by having the greencard or naturalisation in the USA; that's OK. So …
  • Can I just add or quote the Saturday Theotokia: "O you who is without sin, and pure,The Saintly in EverythingThe One who presented to us God,Carried Upon Her Arms" (Ti-atsolep ensemneh).  That is a trouble translation from the coptic or even the a…
  • Interesting point Mina, Can I just add or quote the Saturday Theotokia: "O you who is without sin, and pure,The Saintly in EverythingThe One who presented to us God,Carried Upon Her Arms" (Ti-atsolep ensemneh).  What does this mean?  Does it mean th…
  • Can someone kindly explain to me what our faith is? Why did Christ die for?  Katanikhoros: i'm so sorry if you interpreted my post as being harsh: when I say "being attacked" - i was exaggerating, if not being a tad bit sarcastic. Im really impresse…
  • Dear CopticCopa, You wrote: If you believe in this theory you are making up your own story and everyone can make up their own version-+ how many human beings were there when sin entered the world?+ what was the commandment that God gave them?+ how m…
  • My dear brothers I am sorry have not had the chance to read all the postings but just a few pages so I have an idea of what is being said. I feel uneasy about the theological view that is does not matter- my personal belief is that it definitely mat…
  • Guys. When is everyone free to chat about this online? We are all assuming that Mina and Kata have the same opinion, but I think its slightly different; and this is causing some confusion as they both seem to agree with Evolution; yet, if I'm not m…
  • Mina, if Adam and Eve were not literally persons, but rather an allegorical representation of humanity then how do you explain this verse, "Now Adam knew Eve his wife, and she conceived and bore Cain, and said, “I have acquired a man from the Lord.”…
  • May I just say, Mina and Kata, that I've personally drawn a lot of comfort from this thread and discussion with you.I don't think it has been fruitless in anyway whatsoever. The fact that we have already individuals who have no problem in reconcilin…
  • This whole thread highlights the insanity of the people in the church. Wailing and moaning about divorce but totally cool with the church becoming protestant. Its none of anyones business who gets divorced for what reason, it is between the couple a…
  • I do not like protestantism in the slightest, but I do find it difficult to be a part of this church. Talking to Egyptians is like talking to a wall, no offense to my Egyptian brethren but you guys are some of the most hard headed people I have ever…
  • Gents, I've just spoken to some servants from the UK. They've told me that their Church, priests, bishops are 1000% against the theory of evolution being the precursor of mankind.  They've even given a seminar on this, and scientific presentations a…
  • Ioannes, Hey - why did you leave the Church? What happened?  What counts as "leaving the Church" in this survey anyway? I cannot find a Coptic Church near me so I often have to go to a Catholic Church.
