Independence Day

First things first: If you look over in the left column, you’ll see that I’ve been at work adding some mini-reviews of books and music I like. Perhaps you will like them, too.

Yes, it’s Independence Day here in the US, but I’m not really a very independent person… I’m writing a blog and reading others’, for cryin’ out loud. I think that demonstrates that I am a very interdependent person.

With that said, I would like to declare my independence today from slavery to my passions and pardon from the just condemnation I have merited by my dreadful conduct:

So those who are believers in Christ Jesus can no longer be condemned. The standards of the Spirit, who gives life through Christ Jesus, have set you free from the standards of sin and death. It is impossible to do what God’s standards demand because of the weakness our human nature has. But God sent his Son to have a human nature as sinners have and to pay for sin. That way God condemned sin in our corrupt nature. Therefore, we, who do not live by our corrupt nature but by our spiritual nature, are able to meet God’s standards. Romans 8:1 – 4 (GWORD)

  1. I like that you have that feature on your blog. *rubbing my hands together* how can I do this on my own blog? Thanks for the cd burn you gave me yesterday. I shall post a review when I have given it a few spins.

    Remember, I didn’t say they were like the Black Crowes, I said a lot of the music has the gritty, southern sound but more along the lines of R.E.M. Hope you like them, particularly the lyrics on tunes like, Skin and Double Cure.

    We has a lot of fun with you and your wife on the 4th. I’m so glad you made the long trip to the lake for us.
