Religion

The longing for holiness is not about wanting to be 'holier than thou'. It is about wanting the love of God to permeate all of our life, and for that love to be shown through our lives to other people.

Politics

Every Church statement in social or economic field should be seriously considered and demonstrate a competence in political sphere.

Views

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.
