Religion

The faith should be based on the Bible, but also on reason, tradition, and personal experience.

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

Every Christian should study the Bible that contains a variety of inspirational and thoughtful ideas in the field of history, law, and poetry.
