William Hanna Takes On The Koran-Quoting Coptic Church

October 7, 2006

(By William Hanna)

Dear ALL:

The latest fashion in our Coptic Church pulpit is really something that will make Sts. Athanassious, Kyrillos, and Descores bones turn in their graves when they see their descendants violating the rules of Orthodox teaching: What you see now is bishops standing and quoting the Koran (Latest, bishop of Helwan on Egyptian Satellite, Sunday 17 Sep 2006).

The corollary is very obvious, little priests imitating asyadhum and quoting also. And then one large little priest from Masr Al-quadima appearing on ART to declare to the world that he studied the Koran for the last 15 years and he knows all that it says? Wake up Coptic Clergy – you are loosing your Christianity to appease the others in your country. The Koran should not be quoted from a “Christian Pulpit” as evidence. That is what both and many others are doing!

“You are quoting the teachings of Nastour to the world – ?!—-???!!!!?ian??”

What you forgot my fathers and Lords (assyadna) is this: Christ is A-Z, you don’t need other religions after Christ came. Is this not why we fought Arios, and Nastour
Revelation 1:8
“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End,” says the Lord, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.”
Revelation 1:11
saying, “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last,” and, “What you see, write in a book and send it to the seven churches which are in Asia: to Ephesus, to Smyrna, to Pergamos, to Thyatira, to Sardis, to Philadelphia, and to Laodicea.”
Revelation 21:6
And He said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts.
Revelation 22:13
I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.”
Revelation 22:12-14 (in Context) Revelation 22 (Whole Chapter)
If you have the Alpha and Omega (A-Z) you don’t need other books to quote. Especially if that other book said: “ma salabuh wma qutalohu inma shubih lahum” and also said that “kazab alazeen quallu ana Issa Ibn Mariam Ibn Allah” And: “Ya-yuha al Nassara (followers of Jesus of Nazareth) khafu allah wala taqulu an Issa Ibn Mariam Ibn Allah ….”

So, Nastour on their mouth (because it was “koran” i.e. oral teachings is speaking against the divinity of our Lord and you my church leaders (clergy) are quoting the oral teachings of Nastour. Shame on You! You don’t deserve to be called a Christian (follower of Christ). You can call yourselves a “Church” – a body of believers in something! but it is not Christ – You are believers in yourselves, worshipping your ancesstors and your living leaders when you kneel to each other. Lord Have Mercy! This is not Christianity, it is Churchianity and Coptic, meaning Egyptian Cult is the only description. By the way that is what the Encyclopedia Britanica Calls the Egyptian Church, a cult. We fought for the last 40 years (since 1965) to remove this title but you are bringing it back on yourselves.

Now here is what St. John the Beloved of Christ: Apostole and Evangelist said about he who denies Christ (The Son of God):
1 John 1:3
that which we have seen and heard we declare to you, that you also may have fellowship with us; and truly our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ.

1 John 1:7
But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.
(Where is the blood if one says “ma salabuh wma qutaluhu?”)

3. 1 John 2:4
He who says, “I know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.

4. 1 John 2:6
He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked.
1 John 2:5-7 (in Context) 1 John 2 (Whole Chapter)

5. 1 John 2:9
He who says he is in the light, and hates his brother, is in darkness until now.
1 John 2:8-10 (in Context) 1 John 2 (Whole Chapter)

(What did the Church do with Fr. Abdelsayed, refused to pray on him. What did we do with Fr. Shenouda anba Bishoy, we exiled hin since 1988, and most recently we accused Fr. Matta Al-Meskein, a blessed Father of Monastecism and one of the great theologians of the last 60 years a heretic. Who is the heretic? The pot calling the kettle black? etc. )

6. 1 John 2:10
He who loves his brother abides in the light, and there is no cause for stumbling in him. 1 John 2:9-11 (in Context) 1 John 2 (Whole Chapter)

(we (the Church) became a stumbling block to hundreds, even thousands of others who grew in the Church, we criticized them, exiled them, evected them from their homes and stopped paying their salaries and to a young woman the wife of a priest, only 2 years in priesthood asking how she and her husband and 2 children can live – the bishop replies in perfect english: “It is your problem!” by the way she solved her problem – her husband now is a Protestant Preacher based in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Just in case you all don’t know!). What did the Church do to the departed and forgotten anba Aghabious, we called him crazy and put him in isolation. We exiled many anbas and abounas and the list is long and very well known and most recently a name Amonius and Mattias were added!

6. 1 John 2:11
But he who hates his brother is in darkness and walks in darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes.
1 John 2:10-12 (in Context) 1 John 2 (Whole Chapter)

(We heard the highest ranking bishop say in a lecture recorded on tape and I quote: “Zakaria Buttros (without titles) /awez at? lesanuh, Makary Younan (w/o titles) madakhalsh al-maframah, we Armeia Bulos (w/o titles) hayodkhul al shwayah. No wonder they call this bishop in Egypt: Anba Be-yeshouy)..

7. 1 John 2:13-14,17
I write to you, fathers, Because you have known Him who is from the beginning. I write to you, young men, Because you have overcome the wicked one. I write to you, little children, Because you have known the Father. I have written to you, fathers, Because you have known Him who is from the beginning. I have written to you, young men, Because you are strong, and the word of God abides in you, And you have overcome the wicked one. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.
1 John 2:16-18 (in Context) 1 John 2 (Whole Chapter)

(Here the Apostole is advising the youth to obey the fathers, but more important the fathers not to drive their young to anger, frustration, and disbeleif through harsh treatment. Something my beloved Church hierarchs need to contemplate and act according to the words of the Apostole rather than the ways of their cruel world that is the result of living under one dictatorship or another in the last 60 years, 2 generations of Egyptian miserable dictatorships: Abd-el Nasser, Mohammad Anwar El-Saddatty and now Mubarak the president of Masr El-gadidah.

8. 1 John 2:22
Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son. Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father either; he who acknowledges the Son has the Father also.
1 John 2:22-24 (in Context) 1 John 2 (Whole Chapter)

Do we know now who the anti-christ is. It is any person anytime that opposes Christ and His teachings. It is not Nuclear Science. We know who he is. He existed from the begining. What we are supposed to do is to oppose that liar and not befriend him.

And now comes Ramadan, and we will start again these tables of lies all-over the country. Wait a minute. Mr. Clinton learned the lie and started doing it in his second presidency. And guess what: George W. Bush was never called smart. He is following in the footsteps of his predecessor.

Now, I come to an important point: In a lecture at Cairo University, HHPS III was asked about Sha?rawy? Where he is less than a year after Sha?rawy died. HH answered with a very clever single line: with his good friend whom he loved. Now I answer where my Church leaders will be. Of course with their good friends whom they have chosen to be with. And “haza kafi ya Abd Al-kafi”

But the good news of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, for us poor helpless people from the old ages that still are trying to keep our faith in Christ while the majority of our people are saying: Issa Naby, Moussa Naby!” is this “Moussa was Naby – archprohetese” but Issa, do you mean Jesus Christ the Son of God – Is not naby- because He is the Almighty God Incarnate (borin in the Flesh). He is more than anything in the world. HE IS GOD IN THE FLESH: “And the WORD BECAME MAN”

(A-Z) 9-Infinity 1 John 2:24-..
[ Let Truth Abide in You ] Therefore let that abide in you which you heard from the beginning. If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, you also will abide in the Son and in the Father. These things I have written to you concerning those who try to deceive you. If you know that He is righteous, you know that everyone who practices righteousness is born of Him. And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure. .. Little children, let no one deceive you. He who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous. .. He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.

[ The Imperative of Love ] In this the children of God and the children of the devil are manifest: Whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is he who does not love his brother. not as Cain who was of the wicked one and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? Because his works were evil and his brother’s righteous.
… We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love the brethren. He who does not love his brother abides in death. .. And this is His commandment: that we should believe on the name of His Son Jesus Christ and love one another, as He gave us commandment. .. Now he who keeps His commandments abides in Him, and He in him. And by this we know that He abides in us, by the Spirit whom He has given us. You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.

We are of God. He who knows God hears us; he who is not of God does not hear us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error. …Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.
.. He who does not love does not know God, for God is love. — In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

Islam refuses every single word here.

1 John 4:14: ..
And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son as Savior of the world.
Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.
And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen? And this commandment we have from Him: that he who loves God must love his brother also. Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves Him who begot also loves him who is begotten of Him.
Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?

1 John 5:6:..
[ The Certainty of God’s Witness ] This is He who came by water and blood-Jesus Christ; not only by water, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who bears witness, because the Spirit is truth. If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater; for this is the witness of God which He has testified of His Son.
He who believes in the Son of God has the witness in himself; he who does not believe God has made Him a liar, because he has not believed the testimony that God has given of His Son. And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God. If anyone sees his brother sinning a sin which does not lead to death, he will ask, and He will give him life for those who commit sin not leading to death. There is sin leading to death. I do not say that he should pray about that.

[ Knowing the True-Rejecting the False ] We know that whoever is born of God does not sin; but he who has been born of God keeps himself, and the wicked one does not touch him.
1 John 5:17-19 (in Context) 1 John 5 (Whole Chapter)
1 John 5:20
And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us an understanding, that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.
1 John 5:19-21 (in Context) 1 John 5 (Whole Chapter)
2 John 1:1
[ Greeting the Elect Lady ] The Elder,To the elect lady and her children, whom I love in truth, and not only I, but also all those who have known the truth,
2 John 1:1-3 (in Context) 2 John 1 (Whole Chapter)
2 John 1:3
Grace, mercy, and peace will be with you from God the Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love.
2 John 1:2-4 (in Context) 2 John 1 (Whole Chapter)
2 John 1:7
[ Beware of Antichrist Deceivers ] For many deceivers have gone out into the world who do not confess Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.

2 John 1:9
Whoever transgresses and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ does not have God. He who abides in the doctrine of Christ has both the Father and the Son.
I could have said: Fathers and Brothers, Sisters and Mothers who are going astray because you are trying to appease/please others because of a gain or out of fear: “Read the First Epistle of St. John the Beloved of Christ 100 times then start over because you missed the mark bigtime in the last 10 years.”

For us to be true Christians, not walking corpses that are not sure where we are going, because we can end up with the world friends and not the heavenly friends: The Disciples, Apostoles, Martyrs, Confessors, Saints and those who pleased Christ, we have to be careful and walk the stright path towards the Narrow Gate. He will be with you every step of the way. And the Glory is not to men with big hats, or women with big halos, but is always was and will forever be to The Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. One God. Amen.
