Hold everyone accountable – including yourself – to the standards set forth by the Triune God of the Universe in His word, the Bible.
Subscribe your arguments to the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and / or the Bill of Rights. Be ready to learn and help those willing, to do the same.
Be equally informed on both sides of the discussions pertinent to the issues in your Top-3 or Top-5 list. Never believe just one side.
You are not the solution for every political challenge. Therefore, to be a faithful steward of God’s grace, you must have a Top-3 list of issues you want to get involved with. Are you an overachiever? Have then, instead, a Top-5 list, and not more.
This country is great, but it is not our eternal home. Neither is the rest of the world. We are in-between people: concerned and engaged here and now, but with the eternity of the Triune God of the Universe in mind.
Humans have intrinsic value because they bear God’s image. This value never diminishes, and must be acknowledged and considered at all times and at every exchange of ideas, regardless of how different those ideas may be.
My personal story is extraordinary not because of what I contributed to it, but because the Great Author, the Triune God of the Universe and History, is extraordinary in and by Himself. And I feel the need to act, to speak out, to write because behavior matters, Truth matters, reality matters.
