The teaching of Bible shows methods by which a man can obtain salvation. The objective people wish to attain is not merely to be saved from something. God wishes his children to be saved to something. Christians with different approaches should be engaged with each other to discuss how the Bible should be applied to issues in our contemporary world. Church decisions should be made as openly as possible, giving opportunities for all to contribute. It is important for all views to be heard and taken seriously, especially where Christians disagree.
When peaceful alternatives have failed, the force of arms may regretfully be preferable to unchecked aggression, tyranny and genocide. Every human being regardless of its race, gender or sexual orientation should have all human and civil rights.
