    The separation of church and state has guaranteed the diversity of religious expressions and the freedom to worship God according to each person’s conscience. However, separation of church and state permit interaction.


    No one is less important than another, and no one can be thought of as unnecessary. Every single person is vital to God and to each of us.

    Denomination: Baptist


    As your relationship with God develops and becomes closer, your living habits will change as a natural course of events.
