Works

Religion

The Covenant is not a contract in which God and human beings agree to provide particular goods and services for each other. It is not something that people have to do to create a relationship with God. God has already made it possible.

Politics

When peaceful alternatives have failed, the force of arms may regretfully be preferable to unchecked aggression, tyranny and genocide.

Views

It is good for Christians with different approaches to the interpretation of the Bible to engage with each other and argue how the Bible should be applied to issues in our contemporary world.
