Religion

In modern culture the ability to make decisions and choose our own path in life has extremely high value. But through the faith we voluntarily surrender to God in love and joy.

Politics

Some people think that involvement in political life is something Christians should avoid. But God is present everywhere, including political institutions.

Views

It is good for Christians with different approaches to the interpretation of the Bible to engage with each other and argue how the Bible should be applied to issues in our contemporary world.
