The life with Christ is not only to live in the atmosphere of your local church. God made his children creative, productive, and therefore able to make the whole world a better place.


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.
