Religion

The Gospel shows the manner and the necessary work to be done, by which salvation can be achieved. This is human responsibility to innovate, sponsor, and evaluate new forms of community living.

Politics

All human life is sacred and created by God and therefore, we must see all human life as significant and valuable. When governments implement the death penalty, then the life of the convicted person is devalued and all possibility of change in that person’s life ends.

Views

Small groups inside the Methodist Church should be developed. Thus all members of “societies” could receive support and be challenged in their faith.
