Mary is correct. "Copt" is the Greek word for "Egyptian". So to say "Egyptian-Copt' is to say "Egyptian-Egyptian". This is more proof that Copts are the rightful natives of Egypt, since the Greek word for all Egyptians is "Copt".
O Lord, O Lord, O …
Thank you for all your efforts. Please do continue these lessons, you are helping many of us learn!! Thanks so much! ;)
Hail to you, O Cross: the weapon of victory: Hail to you, O Cross: the throne of the King.
"Blessed are those who believe without seeing."
I could go on and on trying to convince you there is a God and the Christian religion is the correct religion. As for the Protestant religion, they are considered our brothers, but we do not…
Any time. :)
I was reading it actually, and I think this is really relevant to baptism in specific:
The Efficacious of Baptism
(1) Salvation is completed through baptism.
This is pursuant to the Lord Jesus Christ's words: "He who

it depends on what I'm being patient for.
if it's someone who's trying to offend me, or start something with me....i'm not in the least bit patient.
but I think I can handle waiting around for someone or things like that for a long time.

I can't blame you - if you have been going through what you say have been going through, I too would have burst at the seams.
But as we were told: let us forgive, so that we too may be forgiven.
Let us praise Christ, our God: the One in Essence w…

Who Created heaven and earth: we saw Him as a Good One: in the bosom of Mary, the New Heaven: and the righteous, Joseph the Just.
I don't think we will have to worry about losing the Coptic or Arabic language for another 4 or 5 decades.
What I worry about is what would happen if Egypt instituted the Sharia (Islamic Law). Copts would be so heavily, and even more openly persecu…
Yea I think G.J.I is right here.
It's good and o.k to have your beliefs, if they are correct, or if they are wrong, just don't offend people by them. I know it sounds hard, we all have our opinions who offend others, but the trick is knowing that …
I don't see why it is wrong to have a best friend of the opposite sex. I have three best friends who are females, and we've been good friends for at least 7 years now. Nothing has happened, nor anything will happen. There of course have …
I doubt anyone could explain it as well as it was explained on CopticChurch.Net. If you scroll down, all the ranks of deacon-hood are there to be explored.
O Our Lord, Jesus Christ: Who carries away the sin of the world: count us with You…
lol. i didn't mean to offend you by that G.J.I. I was just kidding around. Like I said, everyone has problems putting it on, even the 50 and 60 year olds who have been oghonostous-es all their lives.

Doesn't this discussion belong under "Coptic Orthodox Church"?
Guys, before you post your first question in a new thread, make sure you're putting it in the right category. Thanks. ;)

Yes, the one across the chest is much easier. But the cross-type batrashel...the trick is to put one end of the batrashel draped over your right shoulder, letting the edge of it nearly touch the ground, then complete it. That's how I do it, so it on…
YAY!! Today's the Feast of the Apostles...finally!

And we also honor them: with King David, the hymnist: "Their voice went forth: over the face of all the earth."
lol. u've been putting it on for 4 years and u still can't get it?
lol. I can get mine on, I usually need help straightening it on the back though, it usually tangles up.
even the 50 and 60 year olds in my church need help to put it on. lol.
Welcome to the Forums.
That's a very interesting point. We over in the US have similar situations. Like I posted in some other topic, our churches all have different regulations for this kinda thing. I know in CA (don't ask which part, I …
Thank you for sharing that with the Forum. It is truly amazing to see how many people read posts and never respond. But what is more amazing than that is that fellow Christians (such as yourself - assuming your Protestant from your pr…
I just have a comment on what Marianne (mkhalil) posted before....I think that was an amazing dedication to her Coptic School. It really was touching what she said, and because of her words, I myself am now praying to God I can have such an experien…
oh see...he wasn't ordained because of his knowledge, or ability to read...it was just the usually Egyptian hurriedness in getting things done all at once that allowed for that to happen. It shouldn't have though.

Why are we discussing this? I don't see a point. I'm almost a 100% sure all the guys in this forum have been circumcised, so it does not matter to them anymore - they can't glue back on the flesh that was cut off. And for those who are not…
lol. Not all people are ordained Deakons for their spirituality - there could be many political, hidden reasons too. lol.
and for that ordaination to occur of the 7 year old....which Bishop did that? That is impossible to have them ordained. Oghono…
Very good point.
Of course it's not a must, but would you agree that it is better than not getting circumcised?
A great mystery: beyond all human minds: is the pursuit of our Savior: Who came and became the Son of Man.
