Works

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 created by God and therefore is significant and valuable. When governments implement the capital punishment, then the life of the convicted is devalued and all possibilities of change end.

Views

Every individual should try to be open to others and willing to be changed. Therefore, community members should meet regularly in order to open their hearts, share their knowledge, thoughts and experience.
