Works

Religion

The Covenant is the means of grace by which the relationship with God is accepted and then sustained. It is therefore not so much about getting in to a relationship with God as it is about staying in it.

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 very idea that one gender is superior to another should be rejected as well as the erroneous notion that members of one gender may receive love, power, and esteem only at the expense of another.
