    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

    It is the person’s choice to be saved and one can fall from grace by not following God therefore losing salvation.

    Denomination: Methodist

    Views

    Libelous language with regard to nationality, ethnic background, sexuality or gender does not assess the value of individual and contradicts the gospel of Jesus Christ.
