Religion

Through Jesus' death on the cross, and his resurrection, God has broken the power of all that is evil, in the world and in us.

Politics

The state should not use its authority to promote any particular religious belief. It should allow people practice their own religious convictions.

Views

Some personalities are difficult to manage, especially if they are prone to despair. Do not give up on a search of the paths of God, and the sense of joy and assurances you are looking for will be received.
