NFTU: The Coptic Church along with other groups that reject Chalcedon have been under anathema for 1500 years. In the past 60 years, however, the various ecumenist-modernist heretical teachers of false World ‘Orthodoxy’ have rejected the teachings of Chalcedon and the other Ecumenical Councils which condemn the monophysite teaching. The ‘official’ Greek Patriarchates of Alexandria and Antioch have repudiated Chalcdon’s inviolate dogmatic authority on all areas by joining in Communion with the heretical Monophysite, per separate agreements of intercommunion in 1991 and 1999. The chief ecumenist in the Moscow Patriarch, Metropolitan Hilarion (Alfeyev), who is perhaps the most well-known modernist in the MP as well, was prominent at the meetings (Met. Hilarion is well-known for his claims that St. Isaac the Syrian was not part of the Orthodox Church; as well as Met. Hilarion’s teaching that ‘universalism’ [the belief that all people will be saved at the end of time] is acceptable, though this was condemned as heresy by the 5th Ecumenical Council). Modernist thought pervades the Moscow Patriarchate hierarchy and clergy; for example, Pat. Kirill’s practice of sprinkling and/or pouring in baptism as opposed to the traditional Orthodox Christian practice of immersion.
On 29 October 2014, His Holiness Patriarch Kirill met with His Holiness Tawadros II, Pope and Patriarch of the Coptic Church.
Taking part in the meeting, which was held at the Patriarch residence in St. Daniel’s Monastery, were members of the delegation accompanying the Patriarch, including Metropolitan Bishoy of Damietta; Bishop Raphael of Central Cairo, general secretary of the Holy Synod; Bishop Cyril of the Diocese of Milan; Bishop Serapion of Los Angeles; Bishop Angaelos of the Coptic Church in the United Kingdom; Fr Angelos Ishak, secretary to the Patriarch; Fr Boulos Halim, spoke person of the Coptic Church$ sister Edrosis Girgis, mother superior of the St. Theodore Convent in Cairo; and Prof. Dr. Ishak Ibrahim Agban, Port Said Theological and Pastoral College.
The Russian Orthodox Church was represented by Metropolitan Hilarion of Volokolamsk, chairman of the Moscow Patriarchate’s Department for External Church Relations (DECR), archimandrite Philaret (Bulekov), DECR vice-chairman; Rev. Viktor Kulaga, representative of the Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia to the Patriarch of Alexandria; hieromonk Stefan (Igumnov), DECR secretary for inter-Christian relations; and Rev. Alexander Vasyutin, a DECR staff member.
