Religion

Since righteousness is demanded of God, one needs to know how to receive it. It is received through faith. It is having faith in God.

Politics

All human life is sacred and created by God and therefore, we must see all human life as significant and valuable. When governments implement the death penalty, then the life of the convicted person is devalued and all possibility of change in that person’s life ends.

Views

Male and female have common humanity, having equal worth in the eyes of God. The erroneous notion that one gender is superior to another should be rejected.
