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.

Politics

The Church is after all a movement which sought to inject passion, direction and purpose into the spiritual lives of the people.

Views

All individuals should be sensitive to others by using appropriate language when referring to any person.
