“Real men invest in their families with God’s word, love, lifestyle, wisdom, work ethic, training, and education to support your spouse, children, and future generations, as an example for all to follow.” ~ Jon Barnes
If you don’t follow a real man, who follows God with his lifestyle and habits, then your heart may turn into a pillar of roman salt! Disobedient people have a way of ignoring God’s principles and making up excuses, stories, and lies to validate their short-sided thinking. Not So! We know better, but we look for a back way into the house with an unlocked window or door. Am I a thief? A heart full of Roman Salt will not love and will look into the opposite direction of where God is heading. God’s Salt and Grace are rich and our Roman Salt of wickedness is a poor substitute for truth and enlightenment.
Bad people do not listen to good intelligence, but they substitute lies in place of God’s truth. Do not invest wicked Roman intelligence into your family tree. Only use biblical truth to understand and convey God’s wisdom and direction for your life. Fake Roman intelligence and investments come from the wrong worldly source of greed and evil that point in the opposite direction of God’s mercy, love, and grace. If God does not build your house, it will fall! Look around, it has already fallen. God’s intel is simple, true, and effective. Don’t settle for short cuts, quick fix schemes, or lies from the devil and his worldly fake, Roman Intel.
Why are we all trying to be like each other and not like God? We copy clothes, styles, slang, sayings, plans, music, words, work, prayers, ideas, and the likes. Yes, we can learn from each other, but God is the author of our being and deserves our attention as our Father, His Christian Children and Citizens. There is only once race, God’s race of human beings and everything else is a distraction to get you to look backward, away from God and His Commandments. Since God has invested over 14 Billion souls into the lives of humans, from the beginning of Adam and Eve, providing land, food, water, shelter, air, and other inventions and raw materials, He has proven control over all of His Citizens, The Universe, and All Things.

Romans 5New International Version (NIV)
Peace and Hope
5 Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we[a] have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we[b] boast in the hope of the glory of God. 3 Not only so, but we[c] also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4 perseverance, character; and character, hope.5 And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.
6 You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. 7 Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. 8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
9 Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him! 10 For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life! 11 Not only is this so, but we also boast in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.
Death Through Adam, Life Through Christ
12 Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin,and in this way death came to all people, because all sinned—
13 To be sure, sin was in the world before the law was given, but sin is not charged against anyone’s account where there is no law. 14 Nevertheless, death reigned from the time of Adam to the time of Moses, even over those who did not sin by breaking a command, as did Adam, who is a pattern of the one to come.
15 But the gift is not like the trespass. For if the many died by the trespass of the one man, how much more did God’s grace and the gift that came by the grace of the one man, Jesus Christ, overflow to the many! 16 Nor can the gift of God be compared with the result of one man’s sin: The judgment followed one sin and brought condemnation, but the gift followed many trespasses and brought justification. 17 For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God’s abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ!
18 Consequently, just as one trespass resulted in condemnation for all people, so also one righteous act resulted in justification and life for all people. 19 For just as through the disobedience of the one man the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one man the many will be made righteous.
20 The law was brought in so that the trespass might increase. But where sin increased, grace increased all the more, 21 so that, just as sin reigned in death, so also grace might reign through righteousness to bring eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Please note: The word Romans is used as a theme in my writings for the Book of Romans and is not intended to characterize the city of Rome or its people of Italy. It is merely a thread and personal theme to tie my thoughts together, based on the Book of Romans. The intent is not to disrespect it’s people or rich culture.
