Religion

The relationship with God in Covenant is like a marriage between human beings – both as a community and as individuals – on the one side and God in Christ on the other.

Politics

All human life is created by God and therefore is significant and valuable. When governments implement the capital punishment, then the life of the convicted is devalued and all possibilities of change end.

Views

People are called to love God not only with their hearts, but also with their minds. All things should be considered through the light of reason. In order to do that, it is necessary to become aware of different points of view and be able to develop critical thinking in relation to any political or social problem.
