Religion

The Covenant is a big challenge to everybody. If God is committed to human race, anyone has to be prepared to accept that as reality and make a commitment in return.

Politics

When peaceful alternatives to resolve the conflict failed, the use of force may be the only option to check aggression or genocide.

Views

Church members should be close and caring to feel each other's pains and problems. The good of the whole body of the Christian society should be put before individual needs.
