Grace..



It's not something you say before meals...

Grace is for the woman who just got dumped by her boyfriend, for the drunk who gets plastered every night, for the one who has been sober his whole life, for the unemployed, for the 6 figure income earner, for gay people, for the heroine addict, for the depressed, for the schizophrenic, for the guy who just argued with his wife, for the porn addicted, for the single mom, for the married mom, for the guy who tested positive for AIDS, for the unmarried couple who have 5 kids and are on welfare, for the happily married couple who celebrated their 25th anniversary, for the woman who gets abused by an asshole husband, for the kids growing up without a father, for the guy who's been divorced 3 times, for the one who never stepped in church, for the woman who just had an abortion, for the woman who is anti-abortion, for the guy dying of cancer, for the religious people, for the prostitutes, for the liberal, for the conservative, for skinny people, for fat people, for people who watch Oprah, for lawyers and doctors, for the guy who feels like a failure and can't get his shit together, for the grandmother who has been widowed for 25 years, for the man who's been in jail for 10 years, for the kids who are rude to their parents, for the parents who can't figure out how to raise their kids, for the teenager who just stole something from the dollar store, for the guy that cut you off on the road, for Bill Clinton, Charlie Sheen, and the Black Eyed Peas.

And for me and you...

Drink freely from the living waters of Jesus..

i don't know about murderers, rapists, and pedophiles...i can't seem to find room for them in God's heart...except on the chair with wires on them...

amicatonic,

not sure if you're serious or just making a point, but i can feel you. For me it's easy to extend grace to those who i feel deserve it. Gay & Lesbians- no problem. Drunks, addicts- no problem. Child Molesters- Hell No! Then I realize that whatever group makes me want to vomit when I see them, that's the group I resemble to God without Grace.

then again i'm not god...then again it's easier said than if the circumstance were personal to you, when it hits you in the face and guts...then again i'm not god...then again the victims involved with the aforementioned criminals are "powerless" against the perpetrators--that's what gets my blood boiling to very dangerous levels and my teeth grinding...it's not like two or more consenting individuals, as in the case of gays, drunks, and addicts...then again there's the case of spousal and child abuse done by drunkards, so the victims here are also powerless...then again i'm not god...we all hide something behind the window curtains, in the deepest darkness of the closet...then again i'm not god...thank god for jesus...he will flatten mountains and raise up valleys...and tame my temper. god bless, dylan.

i have a huge problem with what the r in your acronym stands for solely because the victim involved is powerless, as is the case with pedophiles, most of whom shop for innocent children in showcases as if they were mannequins in thailand and other third-world countries...it's an extremely sad thing when innocence is stolen and your person violated. nothing is reversible or retrievable for the victims...i belong in the letter a group for angry people. thank god for grace.

Yes, thank God for Grace....

Because I would certainly need it after beating the living shit out of a pedophile, if I ever came across one...
