Religion

It is the person’s choice to be saved and one can fall from grace by not following God therefore losing 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.
