    Works

    Politics

    God seeks to transform relationship with and between people. If politics is about how we choose to live together and to treat one another, there is surely a place for discerning the activity of God in politics.

    Religion

    The human race, with an acceptance of Christ, is destined to inherit a condition and quality of life that is beyond the imaginations of man.

    Views

    The very idea that one gender is superior to another should be rejected as well as the erroneous notion that members of one gender may receive love, power, and esteem only at the expense of another.
