“It is only by believing in God that we can ever criticize the Government. Once abolish God……and the Government becomes the God. The fact is written all across human history…. The truth us that Irreligion is the opium of the people. Wherever the people do not believe in something beyond the world, they will worship the world. But, above all, they will worship the strongest thing in the world”.

He has been privileged to travel around the world and see the churches' mercy work in action.
