Religion

During the second coming of Christ, the God will sit in judgment and divide humanity between the saved and the lost and will sit in judgment of the believers, rewarding them for things done while alive.

Politics

The state should not attempt to control the church, nor should the church seek to dominate the state. The separation of church and state should not be misconstrued as the abolition of all religious expression from public life.

Views

Some personalities are difficult to manage, especially if they are prone to despair. Do not give up on a search of the paths of God, and the sense of joy and assurances you are looking for will be received.
