What is my Coptic Orthodox Faith?

Written by Administrator on . Posted in Contemporary Issues

"…Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God…for as we have
many members in one body…so we, being many, are one body in Christ…having then gifts
differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, let us
prophesy…or ministry, let us use it in our ministering…or he who exhorts, in
exhortation…and live peaceably with all men…if your enemy hungers, feed him; if he thirsts,
give him a drink…do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good…" (Romans 12:2-
21)

According to this chapter, we find four pillars of Orthodox faith and life:

True Love

Written by Administrator on . Posted in Contemporary Issues

Saint John the Beloved identified Christian love by two essential descriptions: love must be both active and genuine. He said, "My little children, let’s not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth." (1 John 3:18)
There are also many examples of how practical love towards God and one another should be. We also showed how God, when he died for us, provided us with the perfect model of active love which was revealed in its highest form. (Rom 5:8)

The indicators of Psychological Health

Written by Administrator on . Posted in Contemporary Issues

jesus-christPsychologists define psychological health as good adaptation within 
a person and between
him and his society. It means that he reaches some kind of social and
psychological balance. In fact, this state of social and psychological adaptation and balance
is preeminently possible in Christian life because of divine support for
man in his daily struggle, whether at the individual or societal level.

What are the indicators of psychological health identified by the
psychologists? What is the role of Christianity in attaining these
indicators and achieving psychological health.
