Religion

God never intended nor desired for a single person to go to Hell. Sin caused a separation between God and man, and that Jesus’ death on the cross is the only bridge to cross from death to life. This bridge, however, is accessible by anyone at anytime.

Politics

Christians should be dedicated to the holy responsibility and privilege of loving people of all races and ethnicities in religious communities.

Views

Christians should promote healthy marriages, raising loving children, and in getting along with everyone around them—including their enemies.
