Twenty-five years later it continues to challenge the church to unashamedly embrace the "Word of God, contained in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as the only rule of faith and life." For, ensuring the welfare and interests of each member of society can hardly be accomplished outside the communitarian society. The belief that God will be eternally present in every human's life and never giving up on His love. The patient-supporter relationship is presented as an integral part of medical practice that can be understood through a biblical covenant ethic as fidelity between a person or community and the vulnerable patient, grounded in the agape love of God for humankind.
