Religion

The life with Christ has nothing to do with being in a "church" atmosphere for all eternity. God’s salvation involves far more. He is planning to make his children productive, creative, useful, and supremely happy, within an environment of spiritual perfection, health, peace, and love.

Politics

Some people think that involvement in political life is something Christians should avoid. But God is present everywhere, including political institutions.

Views

The family is encompassing a wider range of options than that of the two-generational unit of parents and children.
