Religion

Since righteousness is demanded of God, one needs to know how to receive it. It is received through faith. It is having faith in God.

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

It is important to experience God's grace working in the lives of people. Wisdom and maturity are gained from life experience, especially during the prayer and sharing stories with other Christians.
