Coptic priest vouches for excommunicated Atef Meshreky!

Hegomen Bishoy Andrawes’ in ‘letter to spiritual children‘:

Now, regarding Dr. Atef Aziz (now Fr. Seraphim) and his group:

Fr. Seraphim is currently a respected monk in the Eastern Orthodox Church who started off as a consecrated deacon in the Coptic church. After many years in the ascetic life, Fr. Seraphim began to pass down the way he received. He taught mainly from the early fathers about the deep treasures of the Coptic Church and about restoring the image of God in us (taking off the old man and putting on the new one). Within his teachings, he at times mentioned the poor spiritual state of the Church. For this reason, he was asked to stop his teachings, and when his teachings still spread through his actual practice and the practice of those who received the way, he was excommunicated. Now I know that this will resound in a negative way with many of you. But, before you allow the logic of your mind take over, please take this information in prayer, considering the following:

  • Fr. Mattew the poor, who is now considered a reliable source of spiritual light, was also criticized for speaking about the condition of the church.
  • St. John Chrysostom was excommunicated according to Palladius (4-5th century church historian) by 36 bishops (29 of them were Coptic)
  • Pope Tawadros himself attempted to restore this excommunication of Dr. Atef Aziz, but some of the bishops stood in his way

” end quote.

Full of inaccuracies:

  1. Dr. Atef Aziz and 12 of his disciples were excommunicated because of their heresies, prophesies, and practices, which they still spread and practice to this day. Not for the reason of mentioning the poor spiritual state of the Church. After 15 years of efforts by many clergy and consecrated to restore the repenting and attempting to straighten them up.
  2. The excommunication is a Coptic Synod decree, not a Papal one. The efforts to restore the “disciples” in the nineties, the investigations, as well as a 1996 warning decree were by the Coptic Synod. Pope Tawadros stated that this is a Synod’s business.
  3. Inappropriate for a clergy to write, teach, and entrust against the leadership of the Church. Synod decrees and recommendations should be respected and followed.
  4. Soon after the hidden infiltration was discovered at St. Mark Church, the “brothers’ hurried to leave the Coptic Church and join the OCA with their leader.
  5. Comparing a heretic with St. John Chrysostom and Fr. Mattew the poor… ?! None of them would have even tolerated Dr. Atef’s HeresiesSt. John Chrysostom is actually a reference in rebutting the heresies.

How many issues and fallacies you see in Hegomen Bishoy’s letter?

OCA Anti-Family Part 2: Denigrating the Sacrament of Marriage!

Marring & Distorting Marriage!

Marital Unity Marred by the Original Sin... ?!!

Dr. Meshreky [Fr. Macarius] claiming the 'conflict' between the unity in marriage and the unity with God:

"Before the fall, this unity of the two partners as a husband and wife did not separate them from God because each of them was in a state of being united with God. This was the original picture and plan. After the fall, each partner started to seek the other partner because s/he feels lacking and that something essential is missing – because s/he is estranged from God. After the person receives the faith in Christ, s/he still seeks the visible other because s/he is not able to be fully united with God. This seeking of a visible other became an instinct and a deeply rooted thing in humanity. This is because Man became unable to fully find and unite with the unseen other, God, whom Man is called to unite with. This full unity with God is a walk which requires time and discernment of the steps of this walk. Therefore, an inner emptiness remains inside Man which seeks and needs the visible other." Book: 'THE BRIDE & THE END TIMES' Page 163-164

No wonder the cult advises against marriage!

  1. But the Bible says:
    • "And the Lord God said, “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.”" Genesis 2:18 before the fall.
    • "And Adam said: “This is now bone of my bones And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man.” Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh." Genesis 2:23-24 before the fall.
    • "He who finds a wife finds a good thing, And obtains favor from the Lord." Proverbs 18:22
    • "And He answered and said to them, “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.”" Matthew 19:4-6
    • "But from the beginning of the creation, God ‘made them male and female.’ ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’; so then they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.”" Mark 10:6-9
  2. Discouraging marriage is one of Dr. Meshreky's cult similarities to Montanism heretical movement or sect https://www.britannica.com/topic/Montanism and http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/10521a.htm
  3. It runs against Apostolic Canon 51 (see also http://www.newadvent.org/fathers/3820.htm), and the Canons of the Council of Gangra.
