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

The state should not use its authority to promote particular religious beliefs, nor should it require prayer or worship in the public schools. However, the state should leave students free to practice their own religious convictions.

Views

All Christians need to be familiar with the Bible, that contains a wide variety of literature, including history, law, poetry, gospels, letters, polemic, stories and apocalyptic visions, and try to immerse themselves in it.
