12When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."
14The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of Grace and Truth.
I'm a ULTRA CHRISTIAN - PALEOCONSERVATIVE AMERICAN BIKER! I am 52 Years Old - My Wife and I have been together 28 Years, have 2 Children and 2 Grandchildren. I was raised Roman Catholic and for 9 Years served as a Eucharistic Minister and Lector at a Southwest Detroit Parish.
MY THOUGHTS ON GOD'S DIVINE GRACE
I can only speak of my Journey to Intentional Faith which I feel is Strong though still "A Work In Progress." My Epiphany came the day I realized God is truly worthy of Sincere Worship and Dedication of my Life if for no other reason than his DIVINE GRACE.
Until that day I believe that I took Gods GRACE for granted. The Church has always taught that Gods Love is ALWAYS there for me - I Embraced this fact and let it go at that.
Like God, there were times I intentionally disobeyed my Wonderful Parents knowing that if I got in trouble for it they would be disappointed but their Unconditional Love would always be there to Save Me. I believe I looked at God's GRACE the same way. God has Blessed me in many ways and I want this to continue. I do not fear God in the traditional sense but fear his withholding a degree of GRACE or MERCY for my blatant disobedience or the assumption that it will always be given me no matter what!
I think of it this way - Did anyone ever take advantage of their Fathers Love? Was his Love realistic in the first place or did it place too many demands on me in order to receive it? Was I required to join a club or recite words in order to take advantage of his Love? When I messed up, got in trouble and came back bruised and bleeding from all the mistakes I'd made did "Daddy" require me to say his name and apologize until I was blue in the face in order to receive his help? NO HE DIDN'T! I wasn't required to do anything! The only thing that was required of me was to BE! Not be good or be nice or be the best ....... The ONLY qualification that was necessary for me to have his Eternal Love was that I was his child!
This is my explanation of God's GRACE and in effect his Love. Now if those who Jumped or were Pushed off the "Faith Train" could just wrap their heads around the idea that JESUS Was/Is God's GRACE in the Flesh/Spirit more people would not be inclined to take his Eternal Love for granted.
SOME WILL ARGUE THAT GOD'S GRACE WILL NEVER BE SOMETHING THAT WE COULD ABUSE SIMPLY BECAUSE - IF WE CAN NOT EARN IT ; WE CAN NOT SPEND IT!
WE'VE ALL TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF UNCONDITIONAL LOVE. BE IT OUR PARENTS LOVE OR GOD'S GRACE. I PERSONALLY DO NOT WISH TO BE A PARASITE - TAKING THINGS THAT ARE PLENTIFUL AND FREE AND NOT GIVING ANYTHING IN RETURN.
THIS WAS MY EPIPHANY, IT HAPPENED NOT LONG AGO. IT WAS NOT TAUGHT ME AND I DID NOT READ IT, IT WAS SIMPLY REALIZED AT A TIME I NEEDED IT MOST.
GOD IS SO VERY WORTHY OF ALL PRAISE, GLORY AND THANKSGIVING - AND HE WILL GET HIS DUE FROM ME!
YOURS IN CHRIST

A Solitary Marine Holds Vigil at Full Attention during the
Motorcycle Rally in Tribute to Fallen Comrades.
The fourth of July; freedom, independence, a day off, fireworks and a good time. The fourth of July is our statement to the world and to ourselves that we are free. Free from the tyranny of a King who took away all of our basic human liberties. Red white and blue, these colors never run, freedom isn’t free, and a million other T-shirt sages have impressed upon us over the years that these freedoms are something we should fight for, cherish, and maintain at all costs.
Should we fear terrorists, or North Korea, or some other shady organization that “hates us for our freedom?” Seems to me that the biggest threat to our freedom is our own apathy. Maybe because it wont fit on a bumper sticker, but there is more about maintaining liberty than blowing up terrorist training camps, and imposing economic sanctions on rogue states. Freedom is a living thing. It breaths and changes and needs to be cared for. Like all living things, if deprived of its food it will die. The food that powers liberty is ironically thought, and rebellion.
Thought and rebellion keep a free democracy from becoming a dictatorship. I see a dangerous trend, a trend of apathy, of non-action, of thoughtlessness, of bumper sticker ideology, of sheep like acceptance of the status quo.
If it ain’t broke don’t fix it. The opposite is just as true, something is broke, so we must fix it. Paris Hilton buys her way out of jail, something no poor person could ever hope to do.
As trite as it sounds freedom is in fact not free, it comes with duties that every citizen that wishes to enjoy that freedom is expected to preform. You think your a patriot, you support the troops, you have the magnetic ribbon? When was the last time you contacted your senator and let them know how you felt about an issue? When was the last time you marched in a protest, how much do you know about current goings on in Washington, in your own state, in your own town? Do you read the news?
If you want to be a good citizen of this country, if you want to thump your chest and say proudly “I love America!” then you need to help weed the garden of freedom every once in a while. You need to be informed, you need to know what the government is doing (thought), and you need to act (rebel) when they act poorly. The governments job is not to watch itself, that's our job. We have been doing a pretty poor job the last couple of years. I see very few marches in the streets, I see no general strikes, I see no flooding of congress with letters, we have let the garden grow out of control, and its time for a severe invasive species removal campaign.
This fourth, as politicians spout platitudes about freedom, terrorism, and the like, remember the only one maintaining you freedom is you. Government would rather have you be a placid consumer that sits on the couch and absorbs the next episode of whatever, then goes to some big box and buys way more crap than you need, then put it all on a your credit card. These kind of people are easy to control. The government would rather you not be a politically active, well informed voting citizen who is not afraid to bother the people in power. These kind of people are free, and thus harder to control.
You might not see the shackles but they are there, your debt, TV, political double talk, blind patriotism, its all a symptom of your lack of freedom. As they say, if you are not pissed off you are not paying attention. This fourth of July, before you go to the party, or before you go see some fireworks, take the time to visit your congress person’s web page, and drop them an email. Let them know how you feel, good or bad, with what is going on in the world. Let them know you are watching them, let them know that they work FOR YOU and that you are checking in to see how they are doing. Let them know you will be basing you decision to vote for them on how they handle special interest lobby groups, and what they do about the war, or how they handle an issue important to you. Then let them know that if they don’t do what you want, you are going to fire them.
May God Truly Bless America
I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that his justice cannot sleep forever.
Freedom prospers when religion is vibrant and the rule of law under God is acknowledged.
It is impossible to rightly govern a nation without God and the Bible.
Within the covers of the Bible are the answers for all the problems men face.
Without God, democracy will not and cannot long endure.
Among the most inestimable of our blessings is that ... of liberty to worship our Creator in the way we think most agreeable to His will;
a liberty deemed in other countries incompatible with good government and yet proved by our experience to be its best support.
-- Thomas Jefferson,

We are never defeated unless we give up on God.
Sir, my concern is not whether God is on our side; my greatest concern is to be on God's side, for God is always right.
A thorough knowledge of the Bible is worth more than a college education.
I believe that God has planted in every heart the desire to live in freedom.
