The Church must reconsider its wrong understanding of Christian love. The Church misunderstood the commandment of Christian love, and therefore throughout the centuries, it has become the cause of the unprecedented tragedy of our people.
…The one who misunderstands the fundamentals of Christian doctrine is unworthy of being called a Christian, is entangled in superstition, and is grown scant up to the stage of disappearance. Worthy is the one who has at least a fraction of Christianity or a spark of the soul of the most powerful God-man in him.
It was a mistake, a cruel mistake made by our church: preaching the morality of the poor and disadvantaged. From now on, if the Church wants to leave at least traces of Christianity in Asia Minor and Armenia, it should speak of a courageous people capable of love and self-sacrifice.
A strong and courageous people can despise death in the name of its existence. This is how should live not only the Armenian people but also the Armenian Church.
The self-defense of the Armenian people – that is the new symbol of the faith of the Armenian Church. And if the Church does not accept this truth, does not begin to profess, spread this saving idea day and night, if it does not contribute to the cause of our self-defense by all means available to it, then it is doomed to a collapse.
