Religion

People need not just to accept but also to grow in relationship with God. God's grace and love constantly prompts and seeks to transform people, and so they should continually seek and pray to grow in holiness and love.

Politics

Churches should be urged to demonstrate their heart for racial reconciliation by seeking to increase racial and ethnic diversity in church staff roles, leadership positions, and church membership.

Views

As your relationship with God develops and becomes closer, your living habits will change as a natural course of events.
