Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited.

Roman 12:14-16

Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord. On the contrary:

“If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
if he is thirsty, give him something to drink.
In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.”

Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Romans 12:17-21

Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and you will be commended. For the one in authority is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for rulers do not bear the sword for no reason. They are God’s servants, agents of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer. Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also as a matter of conscience.

Romans 13:1-5

This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God’s servants, who give their full time to governing. Give to everyone what you owe them: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.

Romans 13:6-7

Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law. The commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not covet,” and whatever other command there may be, are summed up in this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Love does no harm to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.

Romans 13:8-10

And do this, understanding the present time: The hour has already come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light. Let us behave decently, as in the daytime, not in carousing and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and debauchery, not in dissension and jealousy. Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the flesh.

Romans 13:11-14

One person’s faith allows them to eat anything, but another, whose faith is weak, eats only vegetables. The one who eats everything must not treat with contempt the one who does not, and the one who does not eat everything must not judge the one who does, for God has accepted them. Who are you to judge someone else’s servant? To their own master, servants stand or fall. And they will stand, for the Lord is able to make them stand.

Romans 14:2-4

If your brother or sister is distressed because of what you eat, you are no longer acting in love. Do not by your eating destroy someone for whom Christ died. Therefore do not let what you know is good be spoken of as evil. For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit, because anyone who serves Christ in this way is pleasing to God and receives human approval.

Romans 14:15-18

this one, I've got a pretty good grip on. It does wonders for me to boost someone else's faith and to tell him or her that I pray for them and that Jesus is loving and merciful and patient...I guess it falls into His teaching of the second most important thing we're taught, to love one another...

Do not destroy the work of God for the sake of food. All food is clean, but it is wrong for a person to eat anything that causes someone else to stumble. It is better not to eat meat or drink wine or to do anything else that will cause your brother or sister to fall.

Romans 14:20-21

Blessed is the one who does not condemn himself by what he approves. But whoever has doubts is condemned if they eat, because their eating is not from faith; and everything that does not come from faith is sin.

Romans 14:23

We who are strong ought to bear with the failings of the weak and not to please ourselves. Each of us should please our neighbors for their good, to build them up. For even Christ did not please himself but, as it is written: “The insults of those who insult you have fallen on me.” For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope.

Romans 15:1-4

May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had,so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Romans 15:5-6

Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God.

For I tell you that Christ has become a servant of the Jews on behalf of God’s truth, so that the promises made to the patriarchs might be confirmed and, moreover, that the Gentiles might glorify God for his mercy. As it is written:

“Therefore I will praise you among the Gentiles;
I will sing the praises of your name.”

Again, it says,

“Rejoice, you Gentiles, with his people.”

And again,

“Praise the Lord, all you Gentiles;
let all the peoples extol him.”

And again, Isaiah says,

“The Root of Jesse will spring up,
one who will arise to rule over the nations;
in him the Gentiles will hope.”

Romans 15:8-12

"Every now and then you get shown the light in the strangest of places if you just look at it right."
Grateful Dead

I forget who said it "but the blues ain't nothin but a good man feeling bad"
The blues is what we all share,you can't describe it, you can only give yourself to the music and trust in the magic that is the blues..

This Family is a wondrous place to come to for whatever you need or feel like contributing; either way this is one of the few places where respect isn't just everyone's favorite Aretha song, but the "secret woid"(for you youngins out there ask your folks about the secret woid) you don't win $100, you get into the Family and stay in the Family and there is no price you can put on what this Family can do for your soul. You guys have pulled me through some of the darkest times of my life, and I thank the great spirit every night for the music and the magic, but mostly for giving me the strength to go another day and the good fortune of having loved a band with so many radiant souls for fans.
Peace on ya"ll, semper fi brother Joe I miss you dog; Ya'll keep on smilin ....well this old long haired hippie boy has rambled long enough, love to all here now and those who find their way here in the future.

Thanks blue. It never ceases to amaze me that I can feel so close to so many people I've never met or even spoken to. I get excited when I think of meeting all of you not in this world, but the next. That possiblity becomes more real for me every day; not a dream, or a nice thought, but an absolute possibility. I think someday I wll be certain of it. The more I contemplate those possibilities the more the cruel insanity of this world becomes unimportant to me and the more I am filled with the wonder and excitement of the next. Can't wait to see you all there.

Will the Circle Be Unbroken isn't just a beautiful song its the musical embodiment of what we all share. Doug what you are doing, be proud man, (humble but proud ya dig?)
"Once while travelin across the sky this lovely planet caught my eye.....we all'd forgotten we can fly"...apologies to Leon and Joe. I'm working hard to picture the world as if Love were man's base instinct rather than survival. one begets the other while the other forever limts the one. Its a trippy exercise but I got nothin but this moment so why not...Hmmm here's a thought, is our circle expanding in proportion to the expansion of the universe. Aldous Huxley once said something along the lines of after all of man's great achievements the only good advice we can pass along to the next generation is try to be a little kinder to each other.Well that works for me. It works for all of us . Well ya'll be good to yourselves, I have to go cancel my cellphone. I mean seriously how on earth did I live for 47 years without this annoyance in my pocket I can't believe how much I've wasted on the damn thins in the last ten years. So good luck with the strike Verizon but You won't be hearing me now ...or ever LOL...Think cool wet thoughts my southern peach heads, just think in a few years Dallas could be beachfront! (with apologies to Dr Thompson, I tend to ramble too) Hell as long as I'm thanking Dr's, my lifelong thanks to Dr. Pepper my elixir of choice. Ya'll have a grand weekend now!
