Religion

The teaching of the Bible is a key in understanding the way by which a person obtains salvation.

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

The demands of modern life may leave someone stressed and overloaded, or isolated and feeling useless. Be persistent, and success will be definitely achieved.
