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 created by God and therefore is significant and valuable. When governments implement the capital punishment, then the life of the convicted is devalued and all possibilities of change end.

Views

It is important to experience God's grace working in the lives of people. Wisdom and maturity are gained from life experience, especially during the prayer and sharing stories with other Christians.
