Hello,

Can you write in more details, what you mean?

It would be good, if you will write in the Armenian language. My English is poor, and it is difficult for me to answer you.

It is valid so, some Armenians go other churches. Also you are right that we should help these people. You propose teaching them the doctrine of Armenian churches.

If the reason of leaving for other church is in ignorance, you are right, but let us remember that all people and Armenians also, like to look for the extraordinary things and do not wish to be trained. For some persons the religion is an environment where they can dream. And we cannot tell them, that they remembered the faith of our fathers. The person himself should make a choice that it wants: the truth or imagination.

In Armenia a word the believer are more often used by sectarians, and for this reason people will ask you, which sect you belong, if you will tell him, that you are believer.

Best regards,

Aram

Each person chooses what to believe or to disbelieve. How is the Armenian church different to other churches? It is, and very significantly - because, Christianly speaking, it is the Church, and most of others are not. But does it make the Armenian church in a position to impose beliefs on others? I don't think so.

If there should be any attempts to convert people into the faith of the Armenian Church - they should be Christian attempts, not political. Otherwise, we'll be dealing with a political power and there, as usually in politics, people tend to choose their party themselves.

Though, is there much choice? Not really. But it is us who bear responsibility for our choises.
