God wants to see people productive, creative, useful, and supremely happy, within an environment of spiritual perfection, health, peace, and love.

People are called to love God not only with their hearts, but also with their minds. All things should be considered through the light of reason. In order to do that, it is necessary to become aware of different points of view and be able to develop critical thinking in relation to any political or social problem.
