  • they should be allowed to stay hidden so they are not tempted by pride. pride is extremely dangerous. but yes there are those who our Lord gives the gift of miracles and prophecy.
  • they are not labelled saints untill death, so no!
  • you can go to liturgy and stay through the whole service. anyone who is not baptised orthodox Christian stays in their place and does not go up to receive Holy Communion (the consecrated bread and wine). that is the same for atheists, hindus, peo…
  • you are very welcome to visit any orthodox church. try to be not too shy and say hello to someone after the service. if you can, read something from the Bible first, for example the first book in the new testament (2nd part of the Bible) called the…
  • thanks, mina. one of my favourite quotes about Christians :)
  • who would want to be the wife of a bishop? you would never see him!not to mention, if you have kids, they would only very rarely see their father.bishops don't really have time for families.
  • remember the woman can be present, just someone else who can take Holy Communion will say the faith responses on behalf of the child. my friend who is a dentist says that she bled for longer after having her daughter than her son, so it made sense t…
  • we speak english because the forum started in usa and then people from other countries joined in. some people here don't speak arabic as their families are from uk, italy or other african countries. we want all our neighbours to know the love of Go…
  • to be clear (as it was messed up by the copy and paste), up to 'Judge.' is from abouna tadros' book, and from 'so,' is my commentary on it.
  • i used it a lot.i don't know how accurate it is, maybe a hymns expert can comment for us.:-)
  • from 'the first epistle of saint peter' by abouna tadros malaty, translated in usa, p21 - 22: “But as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, because it is written, ‘Be holy, for I am holy.’ And if you call on the Father, wh…
  • oh dear, i am sorry you got as far as being the girlfriend of a Christian guy before you were honest with each other about your religious beliefs.you say you haven't told him you are an atheist, so you have not been honest with him, and it looks lik…
  • in romania there are many beautiful old orthodox churches.they nearly all have a few seats around the sides, fixed to the wall, for old people and disabled people and then 80 - 90% people stand during the service.the old people come early to the chu…
  • are u in uk?feel free to send me a message with your approximate location and i can tell u about churches.i used to be protestant 8 years ago (since early childhood) and i can assure u that u r welcome to visit any of our churches, and will see many…
  • no, your answer was great.be sure to learn evlogimenos (blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord) as it is really beautifuland then you can sing it every year at palm sunday as well.sayedna al baba passed by our church!i saw him!now i sing ev…

  • so i would advise you not to wear a headscarf in order to avoid strange looks...;-)  visiting women do not have to cover their heads and visiting men do not have to uncover them.even some orthodox women do not cover their heads until just before tak…
  • this is a pan religious website which recommends meditation and other pagan practices.they don't have any special knowledge about Christianity. (tip: check out the 'home' page of every website you visit to check what their perspective / bias is) als…
  • please define it first!if you mean 'all praying together without restriction', then we are against it.if you mean 'all loving one another and recognising each other's Christianity' then we are for it. i imagine you mean some point in the middle of t…
  • ok then.but i need yours more.:-)
  • how did it go?
  • that is lovely, do u have a link to the hymn as well?i love it so much, bright saturday is my favourite service, and i thank God i was able to attend this year.ophadece, yes our church is lovely. people like andrew rezk need to keep asking questions…
  • to stay the coolest, wear thin, loose long trousers like the pakistani shalwar. this is much cooler than shorts, which expose your lower legs to burning (when outside) and are too close to you (tight) to allow air to circulate around your hot parts.…
  • u know how in morning prayers (bakar), the subdeacons give people psalms to read?well if they are doing it following the proper tradition, they read out the first line of the psalm,then the congregation member recognises it (not me, i don't know all…
  • attend church a lot.ask lots of questions (after the service).and welcome!:-)(previous protestant)
