    Politics

    The state should not attempt to control the church, nor should the church seek to dominate the state. The separation of church and state should not be misconstrued as the abolition of all religious expression from public life.

    Religion

    No one is beyond the reach of God's love. Salvation is there for everyone who turns to God, and not just for a chosen few.
