Religion

The Covenant is the means of grace by which the relationship with God is accepted and then sustained. It is therefore not so much about getting in to a relationship with God as it is about staying in it.

Politics

The state should not attempt to control the church, nor should the church seek to dominate the state. The separation of church and state should not be misconstrued as the abolition of all religious expression from public life.

Views

One may feel driven by urges such as anger, lust or greed. If anybody is willing to be open to the Holy Spirit, God helps to resist evil and to live life to the full.
