His Beatitude Metropolitan Sawa (Hrycuniak) of Warsaw and All Poland, primate of the Polish Orthodox Church, believes that a true Orthodox Christian will never yield to the dark forces of evil which are responsible for Church schisms.

“This is the work of satan and schism is a pain for all of us,” the primate of the Polish Orthodox Church said. “All sober-minded Orthodox Christians aim to keep all people of faith in unity and to prevent any splits. And when there is unity, the evil one strives to create disorder. But the sober Orthodox should understand that this is the work of satan and to struggle against it. Otherwise we are not Orthodox Christians but are only pretending to be Orthodox. If I am Orthodox then I love God, love the Church, and my people, and aspire to unity. But if I do not understand this, then am I really Orthodox?”
