Religion

The life with Christ is not only to live in the atmosphere of your local church. God made his children creative, productive, and therefore able to make the whole world a better place.

Politics

The use of force should be supported, but only in extreme situations and only when the need is clear beyond reasonable doubt, and through appropriate international organizations.

Views

Church decisions should be made as openly as possible, giving opportunities for all to contribute. It is important for all views to be heard and taken seriously, especially where Christians disagree.
