hi im new here as well as to the Orthodox faith. i was raised very liberal and for many years rejected God because the shallow protestant faith and worldy humanism did not offer enough depth to satisfy me. if it were not for the Coptic Orthodox Church, and the Ethiopian Church, i would probably be dead and definetly spiritually defunct. now i defend the very church i was taught to reject, partake in the Holy Mysteries i was told was a man made lie. Glory To God in the highest for allowing me to discover the truth! thank you Coptic people!
