  • Pope Tawadros has declined to meet US Vice President Mike Pence over this. The Church should not concern itself with such political matters. Pope Tawadros has consistently involved himself in politics and has consistently sided with Islamic scholars…
  • I would caution new believers on the importance of speaking Arabic. Arabic has always had a "forced" feel to it in our Church as we were forced to adopt it by Muslim invaders. New Copts growing up in the West are quickly losing their Arabic, I very …
  • I'm not sure how real this is but if true, I would highly recommend you leave Egypt immediately. There is little if any discrimination from European "atheists" vs. Copts (if anything in Europe, you're more likely to get trouble from Muslim migrants …

  • Why do they kill us? Because we are Christians that is why. Simple. They hate Christians and they want to eradicate us from our homeland. It's an Islamic project that has been going on since the inception of Islam and the project has so far been su…
  • [quote author=dthoxsasiPhilanethrope link=topic=14689.msg166320#msg166320 date=1382393331] http://orthodoxinfo.com/ecumenism/copts_orth.aspx [/quote] This sounds like it was written by the Muslim Brotherhood.
  • Why do you care? I don't live in New Jersey and I have no clue who this person. But these are matters private to an individual and his family. They shouldn't be the topic of an online conversation on a public forum. This isn't a gossip website.
  • [quote author=St. Pachom link=topic=14673.msg166269#msg166269 date=1381777929] For most parts the priest originally prayed in Coptic and the People and Deacons in Greek ( usually with Coptic mixed in whether by grammar or vocabulary). Greek was the …
  • You can find some books of the Bible in Coptic here in pdf: http://www.moheb.de/coptic_books.html
  • [quote author=So Minute, So Lonely, So Blue, So Upset; Unable to Hold On! link=topic=14431.msg164841#msg164841 date=1369762848] Go read Sam Harris, Carl Sagan, Stephen Hawkings, Stephen Pinker! GO NOW, you'll find the solutions :3. [/quote] Aren't …
  • [quote author=Stavro link=topic=14417.msg164538#msg164538 date=1368318018] Now, in some places like in the rich churches of Canada, Richmond Hill for example,  the office of priest is the most coveted among hopeful "servants" because of the great sa…
  • From what I understand the following: Libya after its civil war doesn't have a centralized police, army or security. Parts of the country are ruled by local militias some of which are affiliated with Al Qaeda and the like. There was the arrest of C…
  • Update on this story: It seems the perpetrator is indeed Muslim (but described as "not very religious" whatever that means). He is also Egyptian. This might've been an argument over a car but I'm not sure. Link here: http://www.thecommentator.com/…
  • [quote author=irishpilgrim link=topic=14267.msg163513#msg163513 date=1361743508] [quote author=geomike link=topic=14267.msg163460#msg163460 date=1361497675] So two young men in their twenties were shot and killed and then their bodies were severely …
  • Thank you so much Faithfull Servant. That's an amazing link for a novice in Coptic such as myself. @ophadece Please see these links: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coptic_pronunciation_reform http://www.coptic.org/language/pronounciation.html I am…
  • [quote author=Altair91 link=topic=14240.msg163194#msg163194 date=1360225420] THIS IS TO EVERYBODY I just wanted to mention that the Quran does NOT hate on Jews and Christians and any good person. I would like to Quote three verses from the Quran. …
  • Hi Mohammad, welcome to our site! I will attempt to answer some of your questions; 1-) Whats the primary difference between Copts and Catholics ? Actually, you have Coptic Catholics and Coptic Orthodox. The native type of Christianity in Egypt is…
  • Merry Christmas to everyone as well! Can any of our Coptic experts point out to me how to say "Merry Chritmas" in Coptic? I'm guessing it'd be "Nane" something...
  • I agree that things don't look great now but honestly how can it get worse? I know the brotherhood are the biggest liars and hate Copts but with the Internet age we are in which has expanded into Egypt and the world's eyes fixed on Egypt, they can't…
  • Each day from Monday to Thursday, there 10 total hours; there are 5 hours for the day prayers and 5 for the "evening of" prayers. In both cases the hours are : 1st, 3rd, 6th, 9th and the 11th. On Palm Sunday (7 hours) and Good Friday (6 hours), the…
  • Jesus lived in Israel and was a Jew. I'm pretty sure if he was black, someone would've mentioned it in the Gospels.

  • I am sorry if you misunderstood my argument but I do not see how I called you racist in any way; I simply drew a comparison to your argument to another. Anyways, I am not convinced. Also, there is difference between showing humility and blindly ac…
  • With all due respect Father, I do not agree with the reasoning. Yes the right hand represents the right way in the Bible but what does that have to do with the handedness? I'll give you a very close example: the black race; Just like the right, th…
  • [quote author=Father Peter link=topic=12774.msg150018#msg150018 date=1325866384] I find it rather offensive that you should speak of ancient and universal Orthodox tradition in the way you have. It is neither random, nor superstitious. I would sug…
  • ?? So what I'm understanding here it's that we should respect random tradition based on nothing but ancient superstitious beliefs that have no basis in actual Scripture? Please someone find me a passage that links the right hand to good and left to …
  • This is ridiculous, the right hand is in no way superior. Handedness is usually caused by difference in brain hemisphere laterality. What hand we use we can have no effect on our capacity to lead good Christian lives. These beliefs are probably ba…
  • This is an amazing idea. I fail to see what's wrong with it. Caroling during Christmas times is traditional in North America and these guys are putting a Coptic spin to it, singing a beautiful hymn easy to understand for non-Copts. Anyone passing by…
  • You might be right Ioannes. I'm not sure if you mean Jews are worst than Muslims; I'd still think it is Muslims because of what happens in Egypt, but then again, we've never seen Jews in power over Christians so who knows how bad they could be; you…
