    Politics

    People sometimes argue that involvement in political life involves getting our hands dirty, so is something Christians should avoid. But God is present in everything, including political institutions.

    Religion

    The Covenant is the means of grace by which the relationship with God is accepted and then sustained. It is therefore not so much about getting in to a relationship with God as it is about staying in it.

    Views

    God enables every person to resist evil, by accepting forgiveness and liberation, and willing to be open to the Holy Spirit.
