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

Every human being regardless of its race, gender or sexual orientation should have all human and civil rights.

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.
