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
Sadly we are headed into the holidays, I'm saying sadly because this is the busy season for me. Anyone who makes their living in a corporate environment tends to dread this season because corporate financial wizardry makes this the busiest time of the year. Unallocated funds are freed up for last minute projects, 'high priority' projects that were supposed to be completed by May are kicking into full swing, and many colleagues who didn't pay attention to the calendar now realize they have 2 weeks of vacation days in the Use or Lose column.

This is why coasting gently into the holidays is a thing of the past, and threatens to take my focus off the real goals.

I had so many health issues this year, and my coworkers covered for me marvelously, so I'm returning the favor and doing the on-call for both Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, freeing them up so they can spend time with their families without fear of being called up for work. I really don't mind doing the holiday on-call work - it insures I'm bound to home and don't get roped into long sanctification losing shopping adventures like the "Black Friday"fracas.

Thank you Lord for the time we had with Dean Jones.

American Christians suffering persecution share their experiences and how it strengthened their faith in God.

Are you getting enough Hell in your sermon?

Praise the Lord! Christian churches in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) are growing despite brutal persecution throughout the Middle East


  1. Whoopi is a fool and a tool of Satan. There is an excellent book by Joseph Keysor, "HItler, The Holocaust, and the Bible," which proves beyond a shadow of any doubt that Hitler was never a Christian, and that after he was done with Jews his next major target was going to be Christians.

    Why anyone gives Goldberg credence for anything she says is beyond me. She isn't even a good actress! I don't understand how she got where she is.

    You're wrong; Christians in the USA aren't persecuted. I know that because the liberals say so. (snark).

  2. Whatever the health issues, I hope by God's grace they improve.

    Strangely, with all the (important) links you've shared, the only one that disturbed me was the one Glenn commented upon. Her voice matters, and millions of people now believe unthinkingly what she said.

    Your Spurgeon quote above is right on target: (we) walk through this sinful world as a
    pilgrim(s) in a foreign country"
