Religion

A mature Christian can reach a state where the love of God reigns supreme in the heart. No one can be perfect in an absolute way, as God is. But it is possible to be perfect in love to God.

Politics

All human life is sacred and created by God and therefore, we must see all human life as significant and valuable. When governments implement the death penalty, then the life of the convicted person is devalued and all possibility of change in that person’s life ends.

Views

It is good for Christians with different approaches to the interpretation of the Bible to engage with each other and argue how the Bible should be applied to issues in our contemporary world.
