  • Hey Qawe, The idea is the same: God created us to physically die. Apparently, we only died spiritually (eternally). We were always destined, no matter what, for WHATEVER reason, created to die physically.
  • I've explained that earlier that yes, it is in part a way of mercy, as some of the Church fathers said. Did I say something different? I'm not sure we had cleared up this issue.  I think I misunderstood you, Mina.  I told you that my priest said th…
  • Having watched these videos, Dr Hany states clearly that dying was part of God's economy of mercy for us so we don't consistently live in this sinful corrupt world. Would you agree to that??
  • Hello, I wanted to share these videos by Dr. Hany Mikhail Mina who is a Coptic Orthodox Christian and a Medical Dr.  He's obviously seen the issues and dilemmas of this topic and made 12 video responses. I've just started to go through the videos my…
  • Guys, my point was merely that those running the Alpha Course happen to be proponents of Charismatic irrational behaviour, It doesn't mean that the Alpha Course is wrong or bad in anyway.  All I'm saying is that the proponents of this course, those …
  • I don't find Quranic Arabic particularly beautiful. The reason is its full of gibberish. I mean no offence by saying this, but it is so non sensical. Its like the ramblings of someone who needs a good night's sleep. Arabic is generally a beautiful l…
  • I need Mina's faith!! 
  • I really agree with Quiet Time. You need time to read the Bible, Qawe. How in anyway is this unorthodox?? You don't even need to go to Church to read the Bible and have your own Quiet Time. You can just DIY in your own home.  Look my dear fellow:  T…
  • What's a "mission" Church?  [ edited by admin ... we need to stop talking about people here ] Call this Church whatever you like, but I know that Christ is in their midst. Not all Churches in Canada & especially Montreal, are the same.  God ble…
  • "Sexual relations between married couples should not take place either on the eve of Communion, as well as on the day of receiving the sacrament." Excuse me?? What if one spouse had holy communion and the other didn't have Holy Communion. What optio…

  • God bless this church and its servants. Very nice pictures. I think the young priest in the pics is an angel. God bless him and his family. 
  • Well, I still like to sing these hymns outside of the Holy Fifties; therefore, can I still have the updated lyrics.
  • I echo Remnkemi's message. @joanna, to be perfectly honest, you are part of our Church (if you are indeed Syrian). I fail to see why Abouna needs permission to give you Communion. That seems really odd. The Syrian Orthodox are part of the Oriental O…
  • Thanks DG. I think the lyrics on this website are the easiest. If I go freestyling, I'll mess up. Its best to keep it short and sweet. Having said that, just for the record, can anyone share me the lyrics that the LA Deacons use?? I'd really appreci…
  • Hi Share the Lord, I was listening to the LA Deacons. I love their voices and was practicing Pachoise so I could sing it in Church. I am the Church's Moa3lim, deacon and subdeacon, and aghnostos. I am the everything and nothing at the same time.  So…
  • I'm the only deacon in my Church!! 
  • Is there ANYTHING wrong if I stick the to the lyrics given in the text on the Media page for this hymn?? Would that be OK?? This is SO annoying that we don't just follow one Hymn book!! eh da!
  • I can't believe that its common information that you all seem to know which mo3allim ordered which changes to these hymns. That's just unbelievable.  Is there ANYTHING wrong if I just stick to the lyrics as displayed on this website: i.e. end it wit…
  • It's not that I have anything against them, but that their views on soteriology are incomplete (and I think St. Augustine is misunderstood at times). The idea of "debt" and "ransom" is not wrong, but if taken alone, it can be misrepresented, and i…

  •  I would also like to modify 10 a bit. Because He LOVES us, and He is consistent in His creation at the same time, He became as we are, even taking up our consequences in a blameless fashion, to the point of death and descent into Hades, that any pe…
  • [double post - see comment below]
  • Thanks Remenkemi & Minasoliman: Maybe the problem is my understanding of certain terms. Maybe Remenkemi and others are using terms that mean something for you, yet for me, mean something else. Please read the following and correct me where I'm w…
  • Mina, How am I mis-representing you? You are saying that you do not know how God created woman.  You said , as far as I'm aware, that God did not create us to die. He gave us the grace of life (physical and spiritual) - but what you cannot answer (a…
  • I just wish to say one final word: Yes, there are ethical, moral and allegorical meanings in the Bible; especially in Genesis. We can dumb down the entire Bible, or our understanding of it, by simply saying: "well, God wants us to love each other. H…
  • Anba Abakir should have been made Metropolitan of Europe (at the very least). 
  • Thanks Mina, That's a lot clearer for me. The only open question is how did Adam exist if we came from Apes. Was he the 1st male specie to come from an Ape? In your opinion? How could God create woman from man given that man evolved? It means that t…
  • I know this Monk! He was in France. He knows very well that there is a shortage of priests in the south of france, and now he's moved on to be a bishop in Canada.  I thought a Bishop needs to have priests under him?  Anba Louka is already short-staf…
  • Perhaps if we start with the literality of Genesis, it would be better for you. As for me, I, from a true scientific point of view, disagree with how you differentiate between macro and micro. If you were involved in genetics research like me befo…
  • Mina, I don't find this an easy subject. Maybe you can brush this off as me having a low IQ, but somethings don't add up for me. I'll post later when I get a breather. Thank you for sharing your opinion and educating me this far.  I think also,  BTW…
