Religion

Righteousness is a demand of God. It can be received only through faith in God.

Politics

The state cannot control the church, nor should the church attempt to dominate the state. However, religious expression should be present in public life.

Views

One may feel driven by urges such as anger, lust or greed. If anybody is willing to be open to the Holy Spirit, God helps to resist evil and to live life to the full.
