I am the #1 New York Times Bestselling co-author of The Original Argument: The Federalists’ Case for the Constitution, Adapted for the 21st Century with Glenn Beck. It is a translation of the Federalist Papers into contemporary English so that more people can understand them. I’m in my early 20’s.
I believe that true freedom comes from God, and is therefore Sacred. I believe that true freedom is stewarded freedom, and it is therefore an Honor to have.
I believe that true freedom is not simply doing whatever we please, but begins with being in right individual relationship with God, recognizing that our freedom comes from Him, and as a result, stewarding it well for His purposes, and in service to our fellow man.
A free society is one in which not only are each and every person’s God-given rights upheld and defended by government, but where society as a whole values freedom as a Sacred Honor. True freedom cannot exist in a society which denies any transcendent or supernatural basis for freedom. A naturalistic worldview is antithetical to human freedom, and offers no guidance on what it looks like, or why it should be defended. The church and the state should remain utterly and completely separate as institutions, but the church itself should be salt and light in the culture, which in turn informs the government of its true purposes and responsibilities.
