Achievements

  • Bar: Georgia 1965.

Religion

The longing for holiness is not about wanting to be 'holier than thou'. It is about wanting the love of God to permeate all of our life, and for that love to be shown through our lives to other people.

Politics

The state should not use its authority to promote any particular religious belief. It should allow people practice their own religious convictions.

Language of a derogatory nature (with regard to race, nationality, ethnic background, gender, sexuality, and physical differences) does not reflect value of one another and contradicts the Christian teaching.
