The dead Coptic pope is crowned, and kept for public display on a throne.
The body of Pope Shenouda III, the head of Egypt’s 12 million Coptic Orthodox is displayed for public viewing inside the Abbasiya Cathedral in Cairo March 18, 2012.
What to say?
Why put a crown on a dead person, dress him up in kings cloths, and display him “sitting” on a throne?
This is grotesque. This is worship of a dead created being. The Bible says: Do not worship or consult the dead:
The Egyptians will lose heart, and I will bring their plans to nothing; they will consult the idols and the spirits of the dead, the mediums and the spiritists.
But about the resurrection of the dead—have you not read what God said to you, ‘I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’ ? He is not the God of the dead but of the living.”
There are surely some saved Coptic Christians.
But it is not possible to include the Coptic Church as a Christian Church. This religious movement is some kind of antisemitic Orthodox Catholic, separated, but on their way “home to Rome”.
