CAIRO – 11 July 2020: The Coptic Orthodox Church in Egypt warned against distributing “forged gospels” for free to the children of the church.
“The church is announcing its total rejection of the content of these books and other corrupt books via involving phrases like ‘the Gospel of the Christ’,” the church said in a statement on Friday.
The church added that the only body authorized to print and publish the bibles is the Bible Society of Egypt, calling upon all concerned bodies to deal with such forged books.
The Church’s statement came after distributing a book titled “the true meaning of the Gospel of Christ” among the christian community. The book includes phrases that contradict the Christianity teachings.
