Religion

The life with Christ is not only to live in the atmosphere of your local church. God made his children creative, productive, and therefore able to make the whole world a better place.

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

Christians with different interpretations of the Bible should be engaged in discussions about the ways the Bible can be applied to major world issues.
