Religion

No one is less important than another, and no one can be thought of as unnecessary. Every single person is vital to God and to each of us.

Politics

Religious liberty is not merely the right to remain in the religion of one’s birth, but includes the right of anyone to change his religious loyalties without fear of persecution.

All Christians should study Old and New Testament, which texts were written and gathered together over a long period of time. It is important to find out as much as we can about the original contexts in which texts were produced.
