An investigation into central fundamental issues such as the meaning of life, our calling, the search for truth, the choice of the spiritual way. Additionally, we investigate other themes such as dogmatic purity and the recognition of one’s own tradition. All these and more are discussed by the participants of Spiritual Discussions.
What are the Church’s responses to these challenging questions? What is the relationship between the spiritual and material aspects of life? Is it possible to reach perfection in this life? How does one carry out the commandments of Christianity? What should be our attitude towards various sects? How should we protect our children and ourselves from “spiritual deformations”? Thorough responses and discussions to these questions and other important issues will be heard in Spiritual Discussions.
Today, in the era of freedom of conscience and religion, the repentance of a whole nation, its conversion to the Christian religion from the king to peasants, from princes to ordinary soldiers, seems to be incomprehensible and false. How was the conversion of a whole nation into Christianity possible in the 4th century in spite of being surrounded with powerful states having other religions? Why did the Only Begotten hit the Araratian soil with a hammer and announce the start of building of Holy Etchmiadzin? What was that rich soil on which the Cathedral was built?
