Before I embrace (or reject) any idea, belief, or moral stance I should ask myself…
Do I have a vested interest in adopting one position over another?
… recognizing that my body, mind, and spirit are easily hijacked by self-serving desires.
… recognizing that a belief is not true because it benefits the believer in me.
… recognizing that the truth matters, even if it hurts.
… and recognizing that any worldview that demands little of me should always be scrutinized with more skepticism and vigor than a worldview that demands much.
A uniquely burdened and blessed citizen of the world thinking and acting out loud!
