  • Great video Paul. I would also like to add that the soul or the nature of our being transcends after death. CopticApostate you might not understand the soul as we understand it and that this ability to transcend away from evil (because we are fall…
  • I totally agree the Holy Spirit working within us shown by our faith reflected in our actions is what is adhered too. I don't like the protestant (especially American protestant) way of evangelizing. The Americans are driven by markets and the Chr…
  • I meant interesting as in precedence of St Paul declaring the gospel that the Christ or messiah has come to spread His light. Even though the world knows of Him now there is still the possibility that His light may fall upon those of a different rel…
  • You are correct @Ophadece in regards to Islam being religion and state connected. It always was and always will be and I think it does put us in a polarizing position when previously the church had nothing to do with the earthly politics. The Pope …
  • Dear @Amdah I can see your point of criticism @Ophadece" post saying his quotes of verses had nothing to do with anything. I would disagree to a certain extent because they are about becoming corrupted by entering into like foreign elements when it …
  • What was the purpose of the Pope going into the mosque?
  • Hi CopticApostate, Firstry, I qualified insane or crazy as extemely foolish. That was the context of the message. I found something in a book on our faith to answer the question of why doesn't God answer prayers. By M Larson. Repentance is ne…
  • Insane meaning extremely foolish not mentally impaired. Our goal is our salvation of which we have a resurrected Christ in which He sets us an example. To love Him is to be close to Him and to do that we simply get rid of sin. Sin is seperation. …
  • Saint Anthony Time will come when humans will be insane and if they see a sane man, they will go up against him and say he is crazy. The reason is that he is different from them.
  • I guess to depends on the person's thoughts in what they believe. A jealous person has jealous thoughts, a proud person has proud thoughts and a skeptic has cynical thoughts. A cynic most of the time puts the onus on the other. There are two things…
  • I pray you stay in faith dear brother Paul.

  • 1 Thessalonians 5:23- 24 Now may the God of peace santify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 24 He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it. I personally do…

  • You are right MarinaM. But how can they help each other to return to God's grace?

  • I tried to put Sayedna' letter here but I've written it down. I have never been one to seek after offices or titles or thrones like the wordy do. I only seek the desert life of solitude, the sacraments, and our God. My prayer is that you continue …
  • Raafat I am sorry if I made you uncomfortable by your questions. But I commend you on knowing the bible otherwise you wouldn't have found what you think to be inconsistentcy. Doubt is something the devil uses that causes us to be unsure of a trut…
  • Christian is a Greek term meaning Like The Anointed. And Christ is The Anointed One.
  • to the Way, which they call a sect, so I worship the God of my fathers believing all things which are written in the Law and in the Prophets. They were also called Nazarenes Acts 24:5 They were called Christians in Antioch. Act 11: 26.
  • Hi Paul St Paul said in Acts 24: 14 But this I confess to you, that according
  • The concluding chant at the end of the Catholic Epistle says the world is passing away, and it's lust; but he who does the will of God abides for ever. Amen. Like the wise virgins prepare your oil; yourself spiritually that your prepares others. No…
  • Case in point: Emporer Constantine who had an Arian baptism, but he formed the fort Ecumenical Council which formulated the Nicean Creed and on doing so path the way for the church. No one is perfect except for God. The question I guess then to be…
  • What I'm saying is like since I'm adopted I born a stranger into the world is that I saw things as like a third party and that I saw people arguing and I'd think where has the manners gone the ones I was bought up with. If an arguement came upon me…
  • I think Males are represented on a higher rank for God appointed them as in He appointed the Levities priests and for us Christians in the order of Melchizadek and that Christ Himself is the head of the church. Females I dont think have a rank but …
  • I'm not saying not be logical as it does have to make sense but the emphasis of thinking needs to be on faith and then it is a different light in which you see God. If you could see through faith then you might see Christ through the whole bible.
  • Hi Raafat I think the link Masihi provided gives a valid explaination. I guess we're different on the acceptance levels. So if the church says there is no contradictions, then I accept it as part of faith and it is good when someone provides an a…
  • The Sacraments were instituted by Our Lord Jesus Christ.
  • Welcome Masihi, What a wonderful vision you had after you prayed. One of the ways we see Jesus is as a shepherd ( someone who guides his flock). He used this parable Mathew 18: 11-14. For the Son of Man has come to save that which was lost. "What d…
  • 1. The Holy Spirit through an ivitation of a deacon brought me, athough I should of come sooner the first time when Pope Shenoda came for a visit. It was very much the prodigal son. 2. In much the same way the Holy Spirit guides me to make connectio…
  • Hosea loved his wife Gomer. It is a powerful story about God's love for Israel and Christ for His church. Hosea did what God commanded and married a harlot. This also represents Israel at that time as well. Hosea went and bought Gomer back from…
