"I like this post a lot and I think you have some good things to say, but I do disagree with some of your points.
First, the grace of God builds on our nature. It perfects what God has made and sin marred. Though the good we do is helped with His…"
"This is a very powerful post and I believe really does, to quote Mr. Newsham if I may, "hit the nail on the head."
My prayers for you and all.
Mr. Newsham, if I may ask, in what sense do you use the word "religiosity"? I have…"
"The Sacrifice of Calvary although it appeared to the chief priests and the non-believers to be a defeat, Christ's total loving gift of self to the Father is for Him and for us the victory over sin and death. The Precious Blood He shed on the…"
"Within our souls is a very powerful opponent, our concupiscence. As a result of original sin, concupiscence is the weakness of the will to give into temptation, especially when the fight gets very difficult. Let us pray that His grace may flood our…"

I have been a martial artist for going on 20 years (I started when I was three). I have studied in the Shotokan Karate, Bujinkan Ninjutsu and Shinkage Ryu Bujutsu traditions. The lord Jesus is my strength and my love. So currently I am studying at St. Charles Seminary in PA to become a priest for His Church. The many life lessons and wisdom that I have learned from my martial arts, the love of my family and most especially the love of the Lord and Holy Mother Church sustain me and teach me to walk in the light of the Lord with courage, confidence and peace.
May Christ be praised to the furthest bounds of the world,
May His Church prosper for the conversion of poor souls,
May Christ's Vicar, Pope Benedict XVI, keep the flock faithful to the teachings of the Apostles! Vivat Jesu!
I like an array of different kinds of music. I stay away from a lot of Mainstream stuff, because frankly, a lot of it is crap. But a list of some genres is:
Punk before the 90's
Hard Rock, again before the 90's
Old Skool Hip-Hop
Favorite TV Shows:
I don't watch much TV but I do enjoy Smallville (I am a total comic book geek) Big Bang Theory (a show which quenches my thirst for geekdom )and a little bit of True Blood on HBO...not much though... and well, thats about it. I catch UFC once and awhile but prefer local and amateur MMA.

AF desires to reach the MMA world and its culture with the message of salvation by providing hope, encouragement and truth in a relevant way while breaking down misconceptions of what it means to be a disciple of Christ.
AF envisions a time when every MMA enthusiast around the world will be impacted by our ministry through licensed merchandise, print publications, multimedia productions and short-term outreach events that will lead to long-term, self-sustaining discipleship programs.
AF aspires to accomplish these goals by collaborating with the fans, top Christian fighters, like minded ministries and best in class organizations within the MMA community. These fighters and organizations will work hand in hand with AF to formulate and deliver the best products and services in their respective fields.
