It is a bunch of lies without providing evidence or writings to support his point of view. Only Protestant propaganda that takes a shot at all Apostolic Churches.
"The hierarchs added to the theology".
What exactly did they add ? When, where, under which Pope, and how did it come to be universally accepted.
They focus on tradition (I guess he meant it with a small t )
I wonder how a priest in the Church does not know what is meant by Tradition, and how can he get so confused as to separate both, the Tradition and the Scripture ?
One thing I never understood about the position of the Protestants regarding the APostolic Churches, whether RC, EO or OO. How can they take the Bible that those churches canonized and then refuse to take their interpretation for it?
Salvation by grace is forbidden
Not true. A whole book about Grace of God was published by H.H. Pope Shenouda and it is a central piece in the Orthodox understanding. Forbidden ?
I was ordained in 2000 and excommunicated in 2002
Maybe because he was a heretic.
For if somebody wants to teach doctrines against the Apostolic Faith, let him go outside and teach whatever he wants, but not with the authority of a priest or a representative of it.
it seems he is not fair and he has not reason for be because he has been defrocked.
Salvation by the sacraments
That is the way the Apostles received the way from Christ and this is the only way Grace can work in believers. For what an empty slogan is it to say :Accept Jesus and be saved without the sacraments ?
For the Protestants do not understand how atonement works and they teach salvation without atonement.
Coptic Church is an Eastern Orthodox Church
Very ignorant. The man does not know the basics. How can a priest not know that the Coptic Church is Oriental orthodox ?
Luther tried to go back to the early church
. Yeah, did he succeed ? Is this the christianity of the Apostles ?
You have to make your part in salvation
- The man has no idea whatsoever about fasting, prayers, or any Orthodox thing.
- The host is a normal Protestant, ignorant of the Church history and other church other than the Reformed
Church, whatever this means.
- Apparently the program is directed towards scaring away those who search for the truth and are attracted to the Orthodox Churches.
- His conversion story is sad, if it wasn't pathetic and it exposes this man as a lier. According to him:The man went to a Protestant seminary in Egypt in 1997 and got his Master in Theology. In 1999 he got the Ph.D. in Theology. At that time, according to his own words, he totally rejected the Coptic Church but he went back to be a priest ( I do not know whether this is true or not, needs research. he might be lying about this too) and fooled the hierarchs so he can preach the Gospel to the Orthodox.
How low can it get ?
One other thing:
It seems that the Protestant missions in Egypt are trying to infiltrate the Church from inside by using such tactics. I encourage every true orthodox to report any consistent false teachings to the Bishops, specially His Eminence Metropolitan Bishoy.
