Leadership Ethics Online is concerned with the best of classical American leadership values, in a Christian framework and context. America’s decline in so many areas is directly tied with the abandonment of the Common Political Consensus at America’s founding. Our very Constitution reflects the Christian Golden Rule in its Prologue. Love for the neighbor, expressed in ethical action, in the Body Politic–and also American organizations–was tied directly to belief in a real living Creator.
The Founders believed life was filled with daily, personal choices; that we were not mere animals reacting to Jungle Law; and that what we do here on the earth matters to, and is noted by, a holy and righteous God. Such beliefs, when lived, produced the best in American history. However, no one familiar with all of our national story can fail to see the destructive side of mouthing words, but failing to integrate them into personal character, and public decisions.
We believe in Jesus Christ, yet are acutely aware of the centuries of immoral Christian behaviors, done by people who said they were followers of Jesus. Look at the history of American domestic and foreign policies. Most Americans said they were, most say they are, “Christians.” Yet American Christians have lined up to do the bidding of their earthly government–whatever it was or is–as if Jesus Christ mandated these earthly injustices, crimes, and wars. The history of the United States is NOT a coterminous manifestation of the will of Jesus Christ. American Christians, and Christians in every nation, should put their faces in the dirt in shame for what they have done in Jesus’ name.
We challenge individual Christians to live as Jesus himself lived and commanded, though we claim forgiveness given in and through Him. There are enough so-called Christians who have done and do otherwise. Jesus said, “If you love me, you will obey my commandments.”
American institutions, and their current conditions, ARE direct reflections of American individuals. Leadership Ethics Online addresses YOU, as an individual leader. We ask YOU to look within; to examine yourself; and to consider the BEST God wants from you, which God will help you achieve, IF you submit yourself to the reign of God within your heart, mind, speech, and behaviors.
Belief in the possibility of personal change, is like belief in the possibility of God’s existence (not to mention the bizarre idea that the Creator should actually care for and love you.) The first step of belief must lead to the first step of action–trust and obedience (one baby-step or even a Giant-Step at a time). Taking action puts you in a position to experience the truth of that belief, one step at a time, one day at a time.
While Leadership Ethics Online speaks within and from a Christian context, we address any who share our concerns for a world consumed in amoral, immoral, unethical values and acts arising from atheism, mechanistic materialism, human selfishness, or demonic wickedness from the realms of Darkness within people who verbally say they “believe in God.” We hope we say something meaningful and good to you.

Invest in Healthy Leadership Ethics
There is a difference in consumerism and investment. In the latter, you purchase for a definite predicted return, or profit. The question we pose to you is, “Will you invest in becoming a better person, a better member of your family, a better professional at work, and a better member of American society?“
Leadership Ethics Online is here to teach you ethics, grounded in the Bible, illuminated by every human discipline. We are here then to coach you on how to develop your moral compass, deep inside you. Then on how to let that compass guide you in your family relationships. Then on how to carry your integrated ethics into your workplace, and beyond into American society.
You make the choice. Use your corporate budget, or personal funds, for an investment in continuing education in real ethics. The journey will be both easy and difficult. Why?
Learning God’s will for ethical leaders is easy, natural, and feels wonderful. Starting to practice learning is difficult, lonely, and feels scary. Why? We innately love doing the right thing, but we realize how few people today seem to want to do the right thing. We feel exposed. Guess what?
We have been where you are, or we know people where you are. You already have truth, goodness, and honesty in you, just needing God’s watering and nurture.
We will walk you through every step of the way. We will become more than your teachers. We will become your friends and part of our family.
