Works

Religion

The Covenant is the means of grace by which the relationship with God is accepted and then sustained. It is therefore not so much about getting in to a relationship with God as it is about staying in it.

Politics

The state should not use its authority to promote particular religious beliefs, nor should it require prayer or worship in the public schools. However, the state should leave students free to practice their own religious convictions.

Views

The very idea that one gender is superior to another should be rejected as well as the erroneous notion that members of one gender may receive love, power, and esteem only at the expense of another.
