Central Passage
Romans 8:12-17
Memorial Day 2018

Therefore, brothers and sisters, we have an obligation—but it is not to the flesh, to live according to it. For if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live.

For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.

-- Romans 8:12-17

The United States of America does not legislate religious faith. In fact, it defends the right to practice any faith, or no faith at all. But the specific principles of faith from this passage in Romans are strictly prohibited, perhaps to more than half of humanity. On this Memorial Day weekend, we remember those who have given their all to defend our rights to accept -- or reject -- these fundamentals of the faith.
