Religion

God offers a loving relationship. The Covenant is not a contract in which God and human beings agree to provide particular goods and services for each other. God has freely and graciously already made it possible.

Politics

God, who is heard throughout the Bible, calls for justice for the widows, orphans and aliens who were oppressed by the powers of the day. Therefore the involvement in political life is something that Christians should not avoid.

Views

Just as a human body contains different limbs and organs that depend on each other, so members of a Christian society should be close and caring enough to feel each other's pain and delight.
