Religion

God wants to see people productive, creative, useful, and supremely happy, within an environment of spiritual perfection, health, peace, and love.

Politics

People sometimes argue that involvement in political life involves getting our hands dirty, so is something Christians should avoid. But God is present in everything, including political institutions.

Views

The family is encompassing a wider range of options than that of the two-generational unit of parents and children.
