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

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

The Bible can be puzzling but it is continually a source of inspiration and direction in lives of people.
