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.

Random Bits

This world is not my home I'm just a'passing through
My treasures are laid up somewhere beyond the blue
The angels beckon me from heaven's open door
And I can't feel at home in this world anymore
While I have several extremely painful back and hip issues, I am not spineless enough to call myself a "Never Trumper". Then again I'm not a high born, country clubing, nose in the ionosphere swamp thing either. The man I considered to be the premier choice to be President didn't run in 2016 and probably won't run in 2024 either. In fact, the main reason I did vote for Trump is because I love this nation far to much to vote for the scandal ridden incompetent clown who ran against him.

It's highly unlikely that the left will find someone worthy of the office, of course the last time that happened it was accidental, so I support President Trump because Romans 13. However now he appoints Paula White to his staff, you may know that I believe that Paula White is an antichrist, I explained that at length in a recent blog entry, however she recently came under attack by the left which means that regardless of my misgivings, she was the correct choice... because the left hates her. We call those people The Left for a simple reason: they're never right.

Apostle/Prophet/Profit/Pastor Paula White wants you to listen to God's voice, He's saying "Write a check to Paula White Ministries"

That Pope goes all in for pagan idol worship in the catholic church. (Yes, the pagan idols were placed “without idolatrous intentions.” but they said that about Mary worship too)

The Democratic socialist governor of New York, Mario Cuomo, signed a bill that codifies into state law prohibiting churches and nonprofit organizations from endorsing or opposing political candidates. GOOD!!! We're supposed to be talking JESUS, not Joe Biden. (This is a double edge sword paisano, most of your support groups are 501(c)(3) themselves)

Paula White - Satanic Mistress

"Pastor" Paula White
showing off new clerical robes?
17 Now I urge you, brethren, keep your eye on those who cause dissensions and hindrances contrary to the teaching which you learned, and turn away from them. 18 For such men are slaves, not of our Lord Christ but of their own appetites; and by their smooth and flattering speech they deceive the hearts of the unsuspecting. (Romans 16:17-18)
Let me say this out at the beginning of the article so you are not shocked by the conclusions I raise: in my personal opinion I believe that Paula White is one of the most dangerous agent provocateurs that Satan has inserted into Jesus' church here on earth. 

For those not familiar with that term, be careful when looking up agent provocateur, there is a scanty woman's lingerie line by the same name. We should always be good Bereans and look up everything we are not already familiar with but sometimes there are traps. According to dictionary.com an agent provocateur is "a secret agent hired to incite suspected persons to some illegal action, outbreak, etc., that will make them liable to punishment"

Twice amicably divorced "Pastor" Paula White is now on husband #3, rock keyboardist for the glam band Journey Jonathan Cain who asked "Pastor" Paula to marry him on the same day his third divorce was finalized. If you question why I put the word Pastor in quotations when in conjunction with this woman it is because she doesn't fit the biblical requirements of being a pastor.
6 namely, if any man is above reproach, the husband of one wife, having children who believe, not accused of dissipation or rebellion. 7 For the overseer must be above reproach as God’s steward, not self-willed, not quick-tempered, not addicted to wine, not pugnacious, not fond of sordid gain (Titus 1:6-7)
2 An overseer, then, must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, temperate, prudent, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, 3 not addicted to wine or pugnacious, but gentle, peaceable, free from the love of money. (1 Timothy 3:2-3)
Both of these verses describe the qualifications of the overseer of a congregation, the Pastor. Both of these verses require the overseer to be the husband of one wife. I have heard of more than one godly man who stepped down from the pulpit when his wife died because he no longer fulfilled these qualifications of a pastor. Does "Pastor" White fulfill the biblical qualification of a pastor? If you look carefully at the attached photo, she doesn't look much like a husband, and being the mother of one son, I think am safe in assuming that she truly is a woman, but these days you never know...

It's Not Over

It is with some joy but also with deep sadness that I now no longer feel compelled to wear orange on Sunday. Many of us wear orange to show solidarity with our Christian brothers and sisters in the middle east who were undergoing tribulation at the hands of ISIS. 

My joy is with the news that the head of ISIS Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the most vicious terrorist on the planet, was killed in Syria by his own hand to avoid capture by US forces. Also his second in command, Abu Hassan al-Muhajir, was killed in Aleppo province in a separate attack by U.S. forces. The next in line, Al-Haj Abdullah Qardash AKA "The Professor" and "The Destroyer" is rumored to have been "inhumed" (the opposite if exhumed) by US forces also.

Thus ends ISIS as a global force of terror. Their Iraqi stronghold, Mosul, was recaptured by Iraqi forces to end the ISIS caliphate back in 2007. (This victory was completely ignored by the US press in order not to shine any positive light on the Trump administration.) In the end ISIS was under attack by the Kurdistan Workers' Party or PKK, another terrorist organization, this one based on Sanders style communism rather than Islamic inhumanity.

I'm Praying for Kanye West

 Recently Kanye West was quoted as saying "Rap is the devils music" by his pastor in an interview with Apologia Studios. First of all, I tend to believe anything out of any group that uses the word Apologetics because of the ones I listen to/read, they tend to have a better grip on the word of God than a stadium full of Osteenites.

Secondly I would completely agree with Kanye on this depending on the mood you catch me in. If by chance you asked me "Doug, is rap the devil's music?" within a week of having to ride in  my millennial stepson's car the answer would be a loud and boisterous "YES!!!!

I'd probably be shouting to hear myself over the ringing in my ears.

However if you caught me on a more normal day the answer would be a more astute "any kind of music can be the devil's music" including classical music. Numerous pieces of classical music pay homage to Satan, pieces including Giuseppe Tartini's Devil's Trill Sonata, Charles-Camille Saint-Saëns Danse Macabre, and one known to any long time Disney watcher: Modést Petróvich Músorgskiy's Night at the Bare Mountain (Night on Bald Mountain). These are all inspired by Satan, and you can throw in anything with "Faust" in the title to expand your list of Satanic Classical.

One just needs to peruse Good Fight Ministries' music articles to see the horrors that Satan is inflicting on the world through popular music. Country music has so much gospel intertwined that you get a lot of the good, along with the bad. But as for Rap, I'll admit that I don't listen to much at all, but what I hear is horrible. However 30 years ago, MC Hammer begged his listeners to pray, which is more biblical truth than is contained in hours of Hillsong's noise.

I pray for Kanye, I really do. As breathlessly reported through thousands of outlets this summer, Kanye West has converted to Christianity, and I believe it's a true conversion. I was unconvinced until I read that he was feeling “the weight of sin” from “chasing all the things of this world" and converted to Christianity. To me that's a real conversion where one asks "I have sinned, please help me" and not "I'm OK, but what can JC do for me?"

Maybe Beto Has a Good Idea

For a long time I've been warning the Christian community that Satan via the Left is out to destroy us. I'm sure that many Christians agree, but they don't realize how quickly it's coming. Daniel 9:26 tells us "And its end will come with a flood" Daniel is not talking about the situation we find ourselves currently in, but the imagery is the same.

Floods are inexorable, sometimes they start with a roar, but quite often they start with a trickle. That trickle gradually gains in force growing larger and larger until the waters become unstoppable. The same way the that the waters increase in volume before the flood starts to rage, the attacks on the church increase as the Christians are lulled into complicity. Many components of the visible church have moved so far away from the purity of God's word, that they no longer resemble Christianity, they're weekly self-help seminars with a rock band playing God flavored anthems. This leaves us wide open to Satan's attacks.

To my point along comes Texas democrat and Roman Catholic Robert Francis O'Rourke whose nickname "Beto" was engineered to make him appeal to Hispanic voters, but some folks also call him "Skater Bob" because of his odd attraction to skate boards. Mr. O'Rourke is currently floundering in the polls, so to make himself more appealing to the socialist far left he is attacking conservative values. Barack Hussein Obama once accused the conservative Right of clinging to our guns and bibles, and we have to because Beto is demanding to rip both away. I'll cover his anti firearm hysteria in another blog, as for religion - his plan is to bludgeon the visible church into submission. His grand plan: he would revoke tax-exempt status from religious organizations that oppose same-sex marriage.
