Religion

The objective people wish to attain is not merely to be saved from something. God wishes his children to be saved to something.

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

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.
