In his opening comments, Eric gives a broad description of what it means to be moral, which, he says, “is to live in obedience in both thought and deed to the law of God, the law of Love—that law that inspires and guides us in our efforts to live by the Golden Rule, to do unto others as we would have them do unto us.” He goes on to explain that the Golden Rule can be applied to all kinds of moral issues.

Eric answers questions from site visitors about finding redemption from past sins and crimes, regaining a youthful innocence lost in middle age, gay marriage, sex outside marriage, pornography, whether one who is an atheist can "be good," dealing with corrupt individuals and authority figures, illegal immigration, moving on after a painful divorce, and more.
