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.

Religion of Peace Update

How bad is the Muslim persecution of Christians today? Are the reports of Christian persecution coming out of the Middle East, Asia, India, and Africa just over hyped hysteria? According to the International Society for Human Rights in Frankfurt, Germany, 80 percent of all acts of religious discrimination in the world today are directed against Christians. German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, in November of last year, told a gathering of the Lutheran Church that Christianity was “the most persecuted religion in the world”. Anglican Archbishop Justin Welby said that there had been more than 80 Christian “martyrs” in the last few days alone.

The Muslim persecution of Christians has reached such depths of depravity that the Pope stopped his romantic overtures toward the Religion of Peace and after hearing of the slaughter of 85 Christians bravely stood before a catholic audience and told Christians how to avoid gossiping. 
"A Christian should bite their tongue before gossiping," he said. "That way the tongue will swell up and you can't gossip anymore!" (Source)
On September 22 in Peshawar Pakistan Muslim suicide bombers attacked All Saints Anglican church martyring 85 and injuring 200 saints.

On September 21, Muslim terrorists attacked the Westgate Mall in Nairobi, Kenya with the plan to kill  only non-Muslims. Witnesses said the gunmen lined up men, women, and children and quizzed them on Islam, murdering those who could not answer correctly on the spot. Over 60 people were murdered in cold blood for their faith.  

In the Philippines over 70 armed Muslim gentlemen attacked, looted and burned several Christian villages to the ground carrying off personal property and livestock and displacing hundreds of people.Martyr count: 1

In Kenya Muslims newest form of Allah worship is to throw hand grenades into Christian churches. Martyr count: 17 adults, 1 child, 1 Pastor, dozens injured.

In March devout Muslims ran amuck in a christian neighborhood and under the watchful eyes of devout Muslim policemen and destroyed dozens of Christian homes, ransacked them and vandalized two churches. All of this based on a false accusation of blasphemy made by a drunken devout Muslim who was angry at a Christian and tried to get the Christian killed with the death penalty that blasphemy carries in Pakistan.

In January tens of thousands of Coptic Christians were forced to flee Egypt as devout Muslim extremists took over the country. Since the political uprising began in Egypt devout members of the Religion of Peace went on a rampage throughout the country burning, bombing, destroying over 50 churches, some of which were the oldest places of worship on earth, scores of homes, dozens of Coptic owned businesses. Martyr count is unknown and could go into the hundreds.

The stories go on and on, from families being thrown out of their ancestral villages for the crime of accepting Christ in Laos to public executions for committing Bible verses to memory in North Korea the answer to this isn't political. (Here in America the persecution of Christians is starting based on economics and rather than Muslims it's atheist liberals) but our christian brothers and sisters whose lives are being threatened and extinguished by the so-called Religion of Peace I can only say this: do not look to America for help. Our politicians are not interested in helping anyone but themselves any more. 

All I can say to my brothers and sisters who are being hunted down and killed by Muslims for little more than sport: my prayers go with you. It's not much condolence but our Lord, Christ Jesus knew this would happen and when the persicutions begin our fervent hope is that our faith reminds us that we were promised this would happen;
But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, (Matthew 5:44)
If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it hated you. (John 15:18)
Indeed, all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will be persecuted. (2 Timothy 3:12)

But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled (1 Peter 3:14)
Blessed are you when men hate you, and ostracize you, and insult you, and scorn your name as evil, for the sake of the Son of Man. (Luke 6:22)
