There are certain beliefs that are fixed, immutable. These beliefs include our faith around communion, marriage, baptism, etc. Much like the foundation of a house, these beliefs do not change and are the foundations of life. They are what we refer to when we worship, ??from generation to generation and unto the ages of all ages.? This book is not about those beliefs. It is, however, about our ability to adapt to how we serve God?s people. In Mark 3, Jesus healed a man on the Sabbath. He did this to show people how much culture has corrupted faith. While the Pharisees fixated on Sabbath rules and complained, Jesus adapted to show people that He loved them first. Much like a wise surgeon, Jesus extracted the cancer of legalism and brought people back to the spirit behind the beliefs, both literally and metaphorically.While theological and scholarly depths have been reached, we have barely scratched the surface on the way we serve and spread the Gospel in the Coptic faith. This deserves deeper exploration. I hope the journey through this book will enrich your faith and help you seek out the truth. For that is where God lives. He is a God of Truth; He is the way, the truth, and the life; He is the Spirit of Truth.
