Religion

The life with Christ has nothing to do with being in a "church" atmosphere for all eternity. God’s salvation involves far more. He is planning to make his children productive, creative, useful, and supremely happy, within an environment of spiritual perfection, health, peace, and love.

Politics

A member of a Christian Church should support all social initiatives having a purpose to maintain and strengthen well-being and progress of the whole community and its members.
