Refer to the books I listed. If you cannot read arabic, how can you judge his writings and where did you get the idea that he is the gem of the church. You refuse to "blindly" follow the judgement of the bishops, and you do not take a minute to know the reason for his ban from all access to egyptian churches. That is appropriate for an intelligent person like you, yet you blindly follow other people who "told you so" .....
Now that you asked:
- In his book "The Pentecost", published in 1990, Matthew the Poor says the following about the descension of the Holy Spirit on the apostles:
" We are in front of a burning bush, like the old times, in front of a one nature out of divinity and humanity, exactly like the unity between humanity and divinity in the person of Christ. "
He goes further in saying:
" The incarnation of Christ is completed in the Pentecost".
The same words are repeated in the book " Divine Incarnation" on pages 44 and 45. This book has been published in 1978 and 1988, and he has changed nothing.
- On another absurd issue, he claims that the Church is born with Christ, united in essence with the Divine nature, in his book "the Bridegroom" , page 5. He writes:
" The church ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€š is born on Nativity united in essence with the divine nature, and Betleheem became the center of salvation."
- In his book " Patriological basics", part 2, right on the back of the hardcover, he writes: " the church is the bride of Christ, a one human nature united with a divine nature ".
- In his book " Let Christ descend in faith in your hearts" , in page 5 and 6, he writes:
" It is true that the place of birth of Christ is in a mud menger, yet he can only descend with his full humanity on humans only. "
In page 27, he writes:
" When Christ was resurrected from death, he had risen with a a body temple that was saved so he could live in it, and we too share the same divine nature that the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit share."
- In his book " The Pentecost and the birth of the Church", on page 8, he says:
" If we have the fullfillment of divinity that is in Christ, we then have the same divine fullfillment that the Father has. "
He continues on the same page:
" As we have the full knowledge like Christ, we also have the full knowledge like the Father".
- In his book " The birth of Christ and the birth of Man" , on page 7, he writes:
" it (the birth of Christ) is the gift of God to the human race, as God has raised the human race to the same degree of sonship to the Father that ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€š Christ has, and all sons are equal in everything".
When I used divinization of men in my previous post, omitting the use of deification, I had a reason to do so. I did not mention all of his quotes on this issue, and will just select some.
Now, I will continue posting some other errors of Matthew the Poor on other topics whenever I have the time. They are numerous. For example, he maintains that we eat the divine nature during the Eucharist. You can research the matter during lent as much as you want.
