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.


Leadership appointments should reflect the racial and ethnic diversity of the body of Christ.


God should be loved with hearts as well as with minds. To the best of ability everyone needs to think things through in the light of reason. This means becoming aware of different points of view, and using his or her critical thinking to make sense of God's world.
