It’s about time we have the most solid and the best looking modern Church of Christ around!
After all, we were only the first nation in the world to embrace Christianity as our state religion.
For those not yet aware, this happened back in the year 301 AD, way before everybody else.
Sure, there were Christians at the time, but no countries stated themselves as Christian nations.
Note: material “TUFF” (pronounced as “TOOF”) is a very hard stone you can only find in Armenia.
