Default Coptic Christians under attack

For Coptic Christians, another in a long string of attacks

Quote:
The message delivered during Sunday's morning service at the Coptic Orthodox Church of St. Mark in Jersey City was all too familiar: Pray for all of those killed by bombings at their churches in Egypt.

The Islamic State claimed responsibility for two terrorist attacks on Coptic churches in the Egyptian Nile Delta town of Tanta and the coastal city of Alexandria that killed at least 44 people during crowded Palm Sunday services, the latest in a string of attacks against the Christian minorities in the majority-Muslim country....snip....

What is Coptic Christianity, and what do Coptic Christians believe?

Quote:
Answer: “Coptic” means “Egyptian,” and Christians living in Egypt identify themselves as Coptic Christians. As a denomination they originated in the city of Alexandria, one of the most faithful, respected, and fruitful cities during the Apostolic Period. Proudly, the Coptic Christians acknowledge and herald John Mark, (author of the Gospel of Mark), as their founder and first bishop sometime between A.D. 42 - A.D. 62. The Coptic Church was actually involved in the very first major split in the Church, well before there was such a thing as "Roman" Catholicism, and it was also well before the East/West split.

Prior to the “Great” East/West Schism of A.D. 1054, the Coptics were separated from the rest by the Council of Chalcedon in A.D. 451. The council met to discuss the Incarnation of Christ and declared that Christ was "one hypostasis in two natures" (i.e., one person who shares two distinct natures). This became standard orthodoxy for Eastern Orthodox, Roman Catholic, and Protestant churches from then on. The Coptic understanding is that Christ is one nature from two natures: "the Logos Incarnate." In this understanding, Christ is from, not in, two natures: full humanity and full divinity. Some in the Coptic Orthodox Church believe that their position was misunderstood at the Council of Chalcedon and take great pains to ensure that they are not seen as Monophysitic (denying the two natures of Christ), but rather "Miaphysitic" (believing in one composite/conjoined nature from two). Some believe that perhaps the council understood the church correctly, but wanted to exile the church for its refusal to take part in politics or due to the rivalry between the bishops of Alexandria and Rome. To this day, 95 percent of Christians in Alexandria are members of the Coptic Orthodox Church.

The tradition says that when John Mark arrived on a missionary journey to Egypt, the Coptic form of religion of that day was god-centered worship, but focused upon the pyramids. However, John Mark and the Gospel message were well received by the Coptic people as they also believed in “eternal life.” The Coptic people, under Roman rule and societal influence, consisted of Greeks, Jews, and Egyptians; therefore, Christianity had to take into account the different cultural, language, and religious backgrounds when evangelizing and in establishing its church. The Coptic Christians were originally well founded in theology, and other churches in cities throughout the Roman Empire looked up to them with great admiration and respect, willingly following their lead in doctrinal like-mindedness and unity.

It is interesting to note that when the Coptics were under the rule of the Roman Empire, they suffered severe persecution and death for their steadfast faith and beliefs in Christ while refusing to worship emperors. However, by A.D. 641, yet another tribulation began when the Arab conquest took place, overthrowing the Romans’ rule in Egypt and, at first, relieving the Coptic Church from persecution. What appeared to be their liberty and freedom became yet again bondage. The societal strength and control of the Arabs caused the Coptics to endure a major language and culture change as well as confront the Islamic faith. Unfortunately, over the centuries, Christianity lost foothold and most Coptics converted to Islam.

Today, there is a small population of Coptic Christians remaining in Alexandria, but most are located elsewhere. Estimates of the current population of the Coptic Church range from 10 million to 60 million members worldwide. Theologically, Coptic Christianity is very similar to Roman Catholicism and Eastern Orthodoxy. They profess to be genuine followers of Jesus Christ and a part of His worldwide Church. But, as with Catholicism, they tend to emphasize meritorious works in salvation along with liturgical ritual rather than salvation through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

They attacked them because its easier due to location versus location of the hotbed of Islamic violence and that they hate Christianity. Its far from over, the churchs and its people in Islamic controlled areas will take more and more abuse until they are completely gone from those areas. They seek religious purity, and we don't fit into their plans.

This really seemed to escalate around the time of this "Arab spring" which seemingly came out of no where. Maybe one day we will discover its real roots. These same groups were persecuted throughout Iraq not very long ago. We have only heard a small portion of the horror stories..

I suppose, this has always gone on to some extent. Even in the USA it has become a non event to attack Christians. What comes to me isn't good.

It used to be that when Christians were persecuted, they would move on and God would bless them, they would multiply more and Christianity would spread. Islam does it a different way. They move to foreign countries, have large families, take poor jobs, and they and the like become activists to treat muslims with more dignity to include sharia law "until" the world is under Sharia rule and the last of the foreign Gods will be trampled underfoot, no choice, convert or die. No more places for Christians to move to flourish.

I was thinking how this doesn't seem to be in front of people with facts and I did a search. There is a site that tracks I guess as best they can, the attacks against Christians, not all but noted ones since Sept 2001.

They break it down and list them by years. it is a lot..
Example..

Well, its an inconvenient truth. At least with the liberally controlled media.

Take a look at the places where those attacks are happening. What percentage of the victims would you estimate are Christians?

Dan, your initial post included a link to site called gotquestions - I've got a question.

If someone comes into my house, it is my responsibility to protect them from harm while they are there, especially if they are my family. Why do you suppose God is not protecting his children from these attacks when they are in his house?

Like I said they have compiled a lot of information, I gave the link as required by both etiquette and forum rules, if you like, you could follow the link and find the resource.. but here is a freebee..
The list is far too long to list on the page characters by default wont allow.

List of Islamic Terror Attacks on Christians

I researched further and found they are in fact under reporting by as much as two thirds for accuracy..

1.) So why don't you follow that link, as I previously stated, I have to supply my source. I didn't create the site..


2.)It all depends on if you believe in a life after death and understand that Satan rules this world. perspectives of life and death. I am not even going to bother with this with a non believer who could not possibly understand. You don't seek answers for any purpose but argument.
