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
This week I did a blog entry that explained clearly and biblically that God does not allow women to be in the pulpit, that the responsibility to be the recognized, authoritative, buck-stops-here continuous, ongoing, habitual teachers, leaders, and shepherds falls squarely on the shoulder of men, just as the responsibility to lead falls to the men in marriage. I outlined exactly where the bible says this in black and white, and I showed where the justification used by churches that allow pastorettes in their pulpits falls short of God's word. So any denomination or congregation that puts a woman in the pulpit in a continuous, ongoing, habitual manner is in open rebellion to God. Sin is in progress.

Even though the Bible explicitly said that elder-ship and teaching is the role of the man, more and more denominations are allowing women to perform that job against God's will. So it should come as no surprise that there are denominations that allow atheists to poison the flock. These are the thieves that Jesus spoke of in John 10:10  No, the bible does not explicitly say that atheists should not have a leadership role in the church, anyone with a drop of the good sense God gave them could figure that out by themselves! Seriously! What else could 2 Corinthians 6:14 mean? We're not talking about a huge leap of brain power here. Once when loading nuclear weapons on a B-52 the security guard told my team that there was no way he could actually harm someone for trying to access an inanimate object (like a multi-megaton thermonuclear warhead). A quick call to Central Security Control insured within 3 minutes he was no longer in a position where he would have to face that kind of decision. Forever. 

Shouldn't the same care with the flock that is vested in them be taken by denominations who are supposed to encourage, edify, and educate said flock? The Presbyterian Church USA has no problem with atheists polluting the pulpit, (Along with other folks that the bible tends to forbid) but shock of shocks the uber-liberal United Church of Canada finally had enough of Gretta Vosper's atheistic intrusion and destruction of a congregation after only 16 years of Godlessness in their church. I can only praise and thank God that the Strategic Air Command didn't have the UCC providing security for their "flock" And speaking of polluted flocks:

The ELCA has released a resource guide to aid clergy with the performance of liturgy in the “marriage” of sodomites.

And speaking of faux-marriage, is this an example of narcissism gone wild, or is it exchanging "the truth of God for a lie."

I'm sure my fellow watchbloggers will agree with me that when looking for articles with a theological bent for these bits 'n pieces entries it can get really discouraging. We're warned not to love this world but it's our home and it's painful to watch it fall apart even though we know it must and it will. Glenn Chatfield at the Watchman's Bagpipes blog is countering the pain by posting Random Good Things for Edification. It's refreshing to stumble across a potpourri of good things.

It's got to be true! I saw it on the Internet!

  1. Interesting that the abusive parents are getting the government to pay for their child's abuse and mutilation. This is one evil world.
