Works

Religion

The Covenant is the means of grace by which the relationship with God is accepted and then sustained. It is therefore not so much about getting in to a relationship with God as it is about staying in it.

Politics

The diversity of religious expressions is guaranteed by the separation of church and state. However, church and state should interact in different social and political fields for the benefit of the whole society.

Views

All Christians need to be familiar with the Bible, that contains a wide variety of literature, including history, law, poetry, gospels, letters, polemic, stories and apocalyptic visions, and try to immerse themselves in it.
