Heaven is a real place existing either in this realityor another reality. It is where God resides. It is where those who have trusted Jesus as their Savior will go when they die.


As responsible citizens Christians should pray for elected officials, submit to just laws, pay taxes, and serve in various capacities, such as on juries, in the military, in public office, and by voting for their representative leadership.


Just as a human body contains different limbs and organs that depend on each other, so members of a Christian society should be close and caring enough to feel each other's pain and delight.
