Familial and Societal Progress and Liberty will result when the majority of members or Citizens conduct their affairs and relationships with Charity and Respect for the Sovereignty of others. Any time the principles of Life, Agency and Stewardship are violated there will be conflicts that impede the Progress and Liberty of all. This is the system of Progress and Liberty that we have been given by God. Political Agendas and Solutions that violate the principles governing the system will distort the intended results and create failures. The Principles we must obey are defined following.
Life is the Gift that God has given us that we might have an opportunity for Agency and Stewardship. Life is the time to use our Intelligence and Skill Sets to Progress, with Charity and Respect to a State of Liberty.
Agency is a God given responsibility and right to make choices. Every situation before you requires you to act or to not act. Either course is in fact a choice and you alone are responsible for the consequences of the choice you make. You alone are responsible for the stewardship over your life.
Stewardship is the God given responsibility and right to be in charge of your life and the results it produces. You cannot pass that mantle of responsibility and right to others. Your life is yours to do with as you will. You may use it to progress in Intelligence, Skill, Wisdom, Charity and Self-discipline, or to regress into weakness and poverty of Substance and Spirit.
Progress is the God given responsibility and right to achieve your highest potential with the Intelligence and Skills which you were given to start your life. From that base you alone are responsible for their development and the acquisition of other Talents. Your progress is measured by what you return on your own capital base of Intelligence and Skill Sets.
Liberty is the God given promise that when you appropriately exercise your Agency and Stewardship over your life, with Charity and Respect toward the sovereignty of others, you will be given the opportunity to Progress to your highest potential in a State of Freedom, regardless of the acts of others in this World or the next.
Charity is the unqualified love that Christ demonstrated for the people and members of the early Church. Paul described it this way,
New Testament | 1 Corinthians 13:4–8) 4 aCharity bsuffereth long, and is ckind; charity denvieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, 5 Doth not behave itself aunseemly, seeketh not her bown, is not easily cprovoked, thinketh no evil; 6 Rejoiceth not in ainiquity, but rejoiceth in the btruth; 7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. 8 Charity never afaileth:
Respect is the God given responsibility to acknowledge the right of Life, Agency, Stewardship, Progress and Liberty of others. To do so requires the exercise of Charity in its fullest sense.
The Individuals, Families and Societies that understand and obey these Principles will achieve their highest potential in Progress and Liberty. They will also ensure the maximum participation in development possible of their Family Members and Citizens.
Respectfully, Gunny Barton, Ret.
