Religion

People need not just to accept but also to grow in relationship with God. God's grace and love constantly prompts and seeks to transform us, and so we should continually seek and pray to grow in holiness and love.

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.
