Virtue is cultivated over time. It's not a quick fix, and the sooner we stop looking for a quick fix, the closer we will be to being virtuous as a people. This blog will attempt to track the growth of the Virtue Solution Project and will also provide news about courageous moral action across the country.

Sometimes in life everything hits you at once. This was definitely one of those weeks!
On Tuesday, I was interviewed by the Charleston Post and Courier in regards to our project. The reporter was very kind and even enthusiastic at times about what I told him. However, on Thursday afternoon I received a text message from a high-ranking official in the SC Republican Party. I gathered from what he told me that the coverage the paper was about to put out on me and Jonathon...Read Full Post »

Does America have an incurable disease? We are in crisis, but there is hope. The key of the doorway to liberty is virtue. We must exercise the courage and character not to comply with evil. To do so, we must be dependent on God and each other rather than on that evil.
Today, We the People are, as a whole, dependent on big government and big corporations in the ways we most should not be. This dependency has made our society fragile. Our r...Read Full Post »

By God's grace, both Josiah Magnuson and Jonathon Hill, the co-organizers of the Virtue Solution Project, won victories in their respective SC State House races on June 14. Josiah defeated a 3-term incumbent in District 38 (northern Spartanburg County) with 58%. Jonathon retained his seat in District 8 (western Anderson County), avoiding a runoff with 51%. Please pray for these men as they seek to glorify God by advancing liberty and virtue in the South Carolina legislature....Read Full Post »

Did the Founders of our country put a plan in place for us to use if America came to the brink of tyranny? Did they give us the tools to protect our liberty? Yes!
It's time to learn what those tools are - many of them in the Bill of Rights - and take action to love our neighbors, build community self-sufficiency, publish the truth, and stand together to uphold the law! In short, it's time to demonstrate virtue: moral courage. Our country is hungry for courage and leadership...Read Full Post »

I recently received a question in regards to how to rebuild virtue if in fact this moral courage and character is not present, on the whole, in American culture today. It's a difficult subject to address. But here is my best attempt.
We find a Biblical command in regards to virtue in II Peter 1:5. I believe in order to see how to add virtue to our faith, we have to look at the context of this passage.
We first of all have to have faith t...Read Full Post »

As we get closer to our second conference (Feb. 27) and look to promote the project on a broader scale, it's a good time to examine some areas where the Virtue Solution does not fit.
We have some specific goals for the project, which are to correctly implement each of the five "tools" in the Bill of Rights, and a definite objective: to equip American citizens to build a fresh beginning for our country by practicing love for their neighbors, strengthening their communi...Read Full Post »

Happy New Year! We've had a wonderful Christmas season praising the Lord for His gracious wisdom and righteousness available through Jesus Christ (I Corinthians 1:30) who is the Gift that makes all the other gifts possible! Now it's time to get back to work.
In 2016, we have the opportunity to "show forth the virtue of Him who has called us out of darkness and into His marvelous light." (I Peter 2:9) The virtue of Christ is the key to a path of light in true lib...Read Full Post »
