Questions to Live By, formerly named Ethical Revolution, is a campaign to get people thinking and talking about a subject they might otherwise avoid – ethical decision-making. The act of making consistently good, solid choices that are ethically sound is a skill that is becoming more evidently needed in a world that often lacks this ability. Most people want to make good choices, want do what is right, and don’t want to do ethically questionable things; they just do not think about it or know what is ethical or unethical. Additionally, they face strong pressures from the many voices seeking to influence their activities and beliefs based upon their ideology.
The approach of Questions to Live By is unique; the campaign takes on an issue of ethical ambiguity, and provides the individual with a framework that walks them through the journey to reach an ethical decision. Questions to Live By takes you on a journey from ambiguity, to awareness, to agreement, and finally to action on any given issue.
Questions to Live By is a customizable resource designed to assist the individual in coming to a positive solution on ethical and moral issues without assuming an altruistic position. Questions to Live By will provide information and a series of questions that an individual can ask when walking through a specific ethical issue or moral dilemma. These questions, when answered, can help an individual move through the ambiguity to action template (ambiguity, awareness, agreement, action), written by Monty L. Hipp. These questions can be posed to yourself, to others, or in appropriate group settings. Healthy dialogue and the discovery of a path toward what is right, true, and mutually agreed upon help establish a decision-making process. Questions to Live By is great for coaching and training so that pre-existing values, purposes, and guidelines can be clarified and strengthened. This material is designed for application in faith, corporate, government, education and individual settings.
Initially, the Ethical Revolution partnered with the Gospel Music Association to take on the issue of ethical music and file sharing.
