Per Fidem Intrepidus means "Fearless Through Faith". My courage isn't my own, it comes from the Holy Spirit, it's my faith in God and my personal savior Christ Jesus that calms my fears and allows me to move forward in this fallen world. Personally I'm afraid of a lot of stuff, but having the faith that Jesus adopted me as his little, sin filled, brother keeps me going.

"I walk through this sinful world as a 
pilgrim in a foreign country" - CH Spurgeon
Remember Hillary Clinton's complete and utter failure with her childish reset button? Steven Furtick is trying the same thing by resetting Christianity. He's teaming up with the heretics of the New Apostolic Reformation for RESET Charlotte a three day event filled with false teachers, false apostles, pastorix's, and I wouldn't be surprised if there's were also a lot of signs and wonders to entertain the goats.

And as for Steven Furtick - he's not here to save your soul, he's here to empty your wallet. Be sure to watch the Bereans Not Welcome video, it's incredible how Furtick injects himself into the bible (Narcigesis) in the role of Jesus

Here's an incredible article about the December 2, 2016 tragedy that destroyed the “Ghost Ship” club in Oakland, CA, claiming at least 36 victims and the occult ties to the tragedy

... heavenly portals are being created in different cities and God will interconnect them with a network of supernatural highways through which favor, provision, mantles and glory will flow for a coming revival... no, it's not satire, it's not the Babylon Bee, when I want nonsense I turn to Charisma News!

WWUTT Wednesday - For Lent I'm Giving Up...

Ahhh Lent, when the whole world suddenly becomes Roman Catholic. Back in Colorado the world is more secular about Lent than here in the wilds of New Jersey. I'm dining in restaurants here and I'm always hearing "I can't have XYZ because I gave it up for Lent" from fellow diners. 

I come from a VERY Catholic town - Buffalo NY - and Lent there is almost a celebration. You start with wearing the ashes as a symbol of your intent to Lent. Then the season of fasting kicks off with the HUGE celebration of Mardi Gras. We don't have Mardi Gras officially in Buffalo, but hey - anything for a party. Look at St. Patricks  which falls during Lent. 

Lent kicks off with the obligatory listing of things you're giving up. Most of my cohorts gave up things like caviar, pate, lemonchello, basically things we'd never touch outside of Lent either. But giving up meat on Friday - that is what makes Lent a celebration rather than a time of repentance and introspection. Instead of meat we would have fish fry on Friday. If you never had a fish fry in Buffalo, you have to head up there next Lent. I suggest fasting all day because you're going to need to. A Buffalo fish fry consists of the following: heroic portions of potato salad, macaroni salad, cole slaw, and the star of the show a piece of haddock (beer battered or breaded) the size of the Pequod. 

This is people being people in action - taking something that was meant to be solemn and turning it into a party. And as you'll see, evolution is the only constant about Lent.

My First Business Trip in Years

This is my first business trip in ages, at least four years. Travel has been rare since I came down with Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension. Now finally I'm taking the plunge. Everything is painful and annoying, and the pile of medications I bring with is staggering not to mention the supplemental oxygen concentrator. 

I think back 2000 years and remember that my Lord and savior was on the go, traveling constantly and never complained. From Phoenecia to the Dead Sea He wandered constantly and ceaselessly on foot, while I whine about dragging my back pack down the hall to my rental car.
I pray for strength and help dear Lord, that I may return to my family in better mental and spiritual shape, and as for physical? That's why you've blessed me with reasons to lean on you every day.

"I walk through this sinful world as a pilgrim
 in a foreign country" - CH Spurgeon
Again I try to write about something, anything and my attempts get preempted by work, family, doctors, and the greatest model train layout in the world. That is unless I try to write about discernment. Then the road blocks, research blocks and mental blocks just fall away and the words come out. Other than this Random Bits post, the only post I've been able to get out in over a week was about discernment, and the last post before that was about discernment, and even the post before that one was about discernment. And looking at what popped up and dared me to put in this Random Bits post - it's all discernment.

I've talked with a few other bloggers on Facebook and they are experiencing the same thing, posts about discernment and suddenly easier to write than any other subject. It has to be The Shack that's doing this. The Shack is a wonderful, delightful tool of Satan to deceive those who can't, don't, or won't put the effort it takes into discern the word of God versus the word of an author who has publicly pronounced god as inadequate and has replaced him with this drivel. More and more people whom I had thought were standing on the solid rock of Christ but instead are standing on the sinking sand of The Shack Is the Holy Spirit using me as his mouth piece? Maybe, it's pretty awesome think that was true, but it's also kind of prideful. If the Holy Spirit is using us as a tool I pray we are well calibrated, if He's using us as a weapon I pray that our edges are sharp, and if He's using us as His keyboard interface to you the internet reader I pray that our keyboards aren't full of crumbs and coffee.

Bookmark this blog post, it's an incredible, and growing, collection of writings that address supposed Bible Contradictions and each post shoots them down with unerring accuracy

The Pope is a fraud? Many Catholics think he is

Because of the content I don't allow Hillsong music in my home, why do you allow it in your church?

If your sermon prep comes from The Shack, just go away. Put your hands up, back away from the pulpit and leave.

A new study shows that 79% of Americans that call themselves Christian are comfortable with female pastors. This tells me that only 21% of Americans that call themselves Christians read their bibles.

These articles are all proof that deception is a PROGRESSIVE DISEASE
