Religion

By Christ living within, and by the powerful work of the Holy Spirit, people can inadequately yet genuinely love and live in the spirit of God’s commands.

Politics

The state should not attempt to control the church, nor should the church seek to dominate the state. The separation of church and state should not be misconstrued as the abolition of all religious expression from public life.

Views

All individuals should be sensitive to others by using appropriate language when referring to all persons.
