Religion

In modern culture the ability to make decisions and choose our own path in life has extremely high value. But through the faith we voluntarily surrender to God in love and joy.

Politics

The use of force should be supported, but only in extreme situations and only when the need is clear beyond reasonable doubt, and through appropriate international organizations.

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.
