    The doctrine of Christianity is hinged on a tripod of love, hope and faith. It is essential that we build our lives on these three legs for the peace of mind, the treasures of the earth and the world to come. It would appear that earthly greed and corruption of most of our political leaders today who aren't following this doctrine, have created the strife and uncertainties in our world today.
