Religion

The life with Christ has nothing to do with being in a "church" atmosphere for all eternity. God’s salvation involves far more. He is planning to make his children productive, creative, useful, and supremely happy, within an environment of spiritual perfection, health, peace, and love.

Politics

Church should build bridges with political institutions through organizing ecumenical delegations to the party conferences.

Views

Loss, fear, grief or guilt may be weighing someone down. Never give up. Keep up with the search of truth in yourself and you will be awarded with the sense of happiness and joy you are looking for.
