    Politics

    The state should not use its authority to promote any particular religious belief. It should allow people practice their own religious convictions.

    Religion

    The life with Christ has nothing to do with being in a "church" atmosphere for all eternity. God’s salvation involves far more. He is planning to make his children productive, creative, useful, and supremely happy, within an environment of spiritual perfection, health, peace, and love.

    Views

    The family is the most basic of human institutions through which people are nurtured and sustained in love, responsibility, and respect.
