  • is there a Coptic Doctrine on what you ought to eat during menopause? Is there a Coptic Doctrine on what you should wear exactly to Church?? There is Coptic common sense here.  So you are dating a girl. You put limits in a relationship. Neither of y…
  • Hi Learning Orthodoxy, You raise some very interesting points.  I absolutely praise you on your analysis on whether you'd be welcomed or not. Indeed, many many times I have personally seen non-Egyptians being treated like 2nd or 3rd class citizens i…
  • Can you provide links to this??
  • I like the website very much.  I am a bit jealous of your background. You are so lucky to be able to switch between the Greek and Coptic Churches. 
  • Hi Halsawaf, I think you have decided on Christianity already, but are concerned about how a coptic man would/could accept you for not being a virgin. is that right? Well, even if you were Coptic Orthodox, when looking for a partner, one must find a…
  • Hi NonCoptic, Wait a second.. the similarities between muslims and copts that you have mentioned are not true. Women being subservient - that's not true. It is not how we are raised. I know a guy who treats all women, even his wife, as if she's lowe…
  • @Jojo_Hanna, Oh.. and what is the right approach? You think it is ok for people to convert to orthodoxy just to marry someone Orthodox??? We are against that. If you don't like it, take it up with a Bishop, or the Pope. We do not convert or baptise …
  • Hi,DO NOT CONVERT TO COPTIC ORTHODOXY.  This is totally wrong.  I'm extremely angry and astonished even that you are being asked to convert. If your husband wanted a Coptic Wife, he should have married someone Coptic. Are you at least Christian??  E…
  • No matter what you do, you need to ignore the advice of GEBRMARIAM.  This has nothing to do with your FoC. You need to consult a Dr. We believe, as with the Scientific Community, that life begins at Conception. But we also believe in family planning…
  • Hello @ophadece how are you?? It has been ages. I'm fine. Very helpful answer. Thank you. @ShareTheLord thank you for your answer. You lost me a bit though.
  • You mean like add hair gel or wax? It depends. what do you do for a living?
    in Pubic Hair?? Comment by Zoxsasi May 7
  • Hold on, if the soul is not eternal, and the spirit returns to God after our death, then when we die, that's it. It is over. We no longer live on. Have I missed something???
  • You know what?? I think I mis read the original post. Well, I may have made some wrong assumptions. we know that she wanted to have a kind of prayerful life with her husband, but we dont know whether she refused him sex as a result of that. If she…
  • "We're disagreeing that you assume a woman should just have sex to please a man". What a WAY to twist my words!!! HIS WIFE SHOULD HAVE SEX WITH HIM if he is burning in desire than to say to him : "NO! Let's pray 1st" .  And yes it pleases him. The s…
  • Look,we are not kids. I disagree with you all. It worries me your philosophy. 1. Desiring sex in marriage is not wrong. Is that desire lust??? No! St Paul even says that you ought to give yourselves to one another rather than BURN in desire. 2. Marr…
  • Bro, When they tell us that we may become ONE - that is actually talking about sex. He even mentions it. They PRAY that we can be come ONE both physically and spiritually. So, having sex is part if becoming One. Islam is us becoming 5, then 4 then 3…
  • I think it is good to pray, but don't do it on the expense of your marriage. If your husband wants or needs intimacy, and you go want to live a life of constant prayer, why did you marry him for?? Why not go into a monastery?  I don't think it is go…
  • He tried to refute a heresy in our church,and yes, unwittingly over-compensated and ended up in another. Let's be clear: Do we eat the Divine Holy Body in the Eucharist, or do we consume the Holy Body? Do we eat Divinity??  That was the issue, and …
  • Monfret Why is it OK for a man to have pre-marital sex and not a woman?  Do you actually believe that? Do you actually believe that pre-marital sex is OK? 
  • Not true mabsoota. The first man blamed God for his actions. He said to God :" the woman whom YOU gave me told me eat". God punished the woman because she listen to the serpent. However, he punished Adam because he listened to the woman. It's be…
  • I do not think they are martyrs. Here's why:  If they were warned that going to Church will result in them being killed FOR THE SOLE purpose of their faith, then yes, they are martyrs.  We know, as Copts, that a taxi cab will not drive you outside t…
  • Who honestly cares about this? Let's say it's true. So what? Let's say it's false. So what?? The accusation sounds childish. I know we have problems in our church, and I know that bishops can do crazy things, but why is this of anyone's busine…
  • Why would anyone with any common sense convert to this stupid Islamic religion?? I disagree with all the comments. Islam is a religion for terrorists. Go to daesh and find yourself a sex slave and leave this poor christian girl alone.
  • No. The Coptic church should grow stronger. I'm very very proud to mention I'm Coptic. Everyone I know loves our history, our sufferings , our story. Islam has really made the Coptic church shine.
  • I think we should all start learning Coptic as a language in its own right.
  • Thank you for sharing this story. Can you tell me in one sentence what the problem is??
  • Thank you Mina for that clarification. Can you explain more about the spirit?? How does it or when does it enter the body? Do all humans have spirits?? Is the consciousness the spirit or the soul???
  • Hello, I just wanted to say that I thought your post was really awesome - down to earth, honest, and sincere. I think sexual sins is something everyone has grappled with also; some to more extents than others.  I think what you need is good Christia…
  • @Aelwyn82 Hello. That's interesting. I'm grappling with the idea that there is sexuality in heaven. When souls go to heaven, does a soul have a sexuality? Do we remain male or female when we die?
