Religion

The Gospel of Christ is the message that can lead one to salvation. It shows the essential steps that one must take to secure the goal that God wishes all to attain.

Politics

The state should not use its authority to promote particular religious beliefs, nor should it require prayer or worship in the public schools. However, the state should leave students free to practice their own religious convictions.

Views

Anyone may appear in hardship and poverty. Never give up in pursuit of happiness and one day you will find yourself in the right place, where God gives the sense of joy and assurances you are looking for.
