Law vs Grace, considering our Declaration of Independence. The law which was ordained unto life I found to be unto death. ( Man's law ). For wrong taking occasion by the law, deceived me, and by it slew me. Wherefore God's law is holy , just and good. For we know that the law is spiritual : but I am carnal, sold under sin. I find then a law, that when I would do good, evil is present with me. For I delight in the law of God after the inward man. But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. O wretched man that I am ! who shall save me from the body of this death ? I thank the God of Nature through his Spirit of Liberty. So then with the mind I serve the Law of God, but with the flesh the law of sin. ( Sin, being the transgression of the law ). That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. ( That Spirit to follow a good conscience. ) For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. To embrace Liberty, is to walk with God, under his mercy, grace and Truth. We are freed from the law of sin and judgment, to walk moderately among others, embracing Liberty, not oppression by way of man's law. Remember Follow the Good conscience, the law of God in our minds and written upon fleshly tables of the heart. This is why socialist embrace carnal law, to oppress their neighbor. They seek not after the Law of the Spirit, of a Good conscience, but only to walk after the flesh, fulfilling their own lust for domination, and enslavement of their fellow man. ( Know Thyself ) and ( To thine own self be True ) gives way for Divine Providence in ones life. Or a Nation, guided by the Spirit of Truth and Liberty, once ceased form strivings about the carnal law with other men. People are the dogs within they feed !

There are seven abominations in the heart, Wisdom has hewn out Her seven pillars, have the good courage to follow Her ! There are seven notes in the scale, According to God's Natural law, as there are seven days in the week, and every eighth day is a new beginning. Numerical order, by God's will and his natural law. We walk according to the law of faith and a good conscience.
