A mature Christian can reach a state where the love of God reigns supreme in the heart. No one can be perfect in an absolute way, as God is. But it is possible to be perfect in love to God.


A believer should support social climates, in which human communities are maintained and strengthened for the sake of all persons and their growth.


Your desires, ambitions, goals, and purpose change as you begin to enjoy a close walk with a living God. These changes are different for each individual, and the journey needs to be taken a step at a time.
