Religion

Our faith rests not on our own feelings, but on the promises of a faithful God.

Politics

Social norms that assume different standards for women than for men in marriage are outdated and should be rejected. Laws in civil society should define marriage as the union of one man and one woman.

Views

In a society where self-interest and hypocrisy are often seen as dominating, the Christians should nurture and promote values and purposes that are beyond us.
