Religion

Through Jesus' death on the cross, and his resurrection, the power of evil in the world is broken.

Politics

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

Every Church member should be trusted with responsibilities. In building the local Methodist groups or 'societies', they should be trained to maintain the meetings and give pastoral care and challenge to the members.
