“Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honor, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions.” ~ John Adams, letter to Mercy Warren, 1776
The Texas Honor Project (THP) is a vigorous program that supports Christian state legislators as they seek to faithfully honor God and their constituents during their tenure in office. The program is offered by G2g.Org [Generation to generation].
THP helps protect legislators and their staffs from the distraction and entanglement that their positions of influence often attract. Our legislators enter their roles with high hopes, strong values, and sincere ideals. THP helps safeguard these from the subtle lures of power, greed, and compromise that often permeate civil government systems.
Therefore, THP will not only provide support to Christian legislators, it will be there to help staff recognize, and maneuver around, the pitfalls of governmental systems. This will primarily be achieved through a regular weekly study designed to equip them as true Gate Keepers with knowledge, wisdom and understanding that will give them an advantage in dealing with every snare and issue thrown at them during the legislative session. Participating legislators and their staff will gain steadfastness against those who would mitigate their resolve and undercut their duty and calling.
THP’s mission is to assist, encourage and inspire legislators and their staffs to stay true to their love of the Lord. Matthew 22:37-40 offers the greatest commandment, which is to love God first and love your neighbor as yourself. We are called, therefore, to honor God and honor people. The mission of the Texas Honor Project is to preserve and promote such honor in Texas government.
