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.

Happy Reformation Day!

Four hundred ninety six years ago we were freed from Theological tyranny and the heresy of indulgence, and the word of God was restored to His faithful and loving flock when the Holy Spirit guided Martin Luther to post his 95 Thesis on the door at Wittenberg Castle Church.

Why in the name of all that is holy are we not Celebrating THIS instead of some pagan candy rite?

Bible Verses for Halloween

13 For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. 14 No wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is not surprising if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness, whose end will be according to their deeds. (2 Cor. 11:13-15)
 11 Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead even expose them (Eph. 5:11)
10 There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, one who uses divination, one who practices witchcraft, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, 11 or one who casts a spell, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. 12 For whoever does these things is detestable to the Lord; and because of these detestable things the Lord your God will drive them out before you. (Deut. 18:10-12)

Lets Just Skip Halloween This Year

I may just be "chasing after the wind" but I'm really not happy with Halloween and our national orgy of satanic ritual. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy a good sugar rush as much as the next seven year old, and my favorite shopping day is November 1st when all the halloween size Kit-Kat's and Almond Joys are 75% off at the local Piggly Wiggly, but what at price are we selling our souls just for a party?

If the words "Everyone's doing it" come to your lips then shame on you. We're Christians! When we see that everyone's doing it we should instinctively turn away! Or at least instinctively find out exactly what is going on. While the whole world was sacrificing their children to Moloch and Baal our theological ancestors were railing against that. While all of the known world reeling in drunken orgies our theological ancestors were burned at the stake for their faith to illuminate those parties. While papistry ran rampant throughout Europe usurping governments and selling indulgences our theological ancestors were hunted down like dogs by the inquisition for the sin of reading the true word of God in the holy scriptures. We Christians are the original rugged individuals putting our faith and trust in Jesus, not in society. Here's my reason why you won't find me unless you know where I'm studying my bible come October 31:

Officer Down

On October 8th, at 7:10 AM an Ontario CA. police officer was motoring from his dispatch office to another police location for some training. He wasn't on patrol, he wasn't in pursuit, he was just moving from point A to point B on police business. As he drove the 50 MPH speed limit in the right lane of a divided 6 lane street the 18 wheeler in the lane to his left chose to make a right hand turn into a driveway. Without warning the truck slewed right and the officer's field of vision was suddenly filled with 23,000 lbs of steel. His motorcycle struck the front right section of the prime mover and the only thing that kept the truck from rolling over him was the fact that the lug nuts of the trucks front wheel caught his motorcycle's foot peg and flipped the bike launching him over 50' through the air until he eventually smashed into the pavement. Two hours later my wife called me at work, "My brother Rob has been hurt." Thus began the longest October in our lives. 

Obama Ramps Up His War Against Christians In The Military

As I mentioned earlier, the Obama administration has declared war on terrorists - not the type of terrorists who slaughter innocent people in the name of Allah, not the type of terrorists that want to overthrow the rule of law and usurp the Constitution of the United States of America, but the type of terrorists who believe both afore mentioned actions are reprehensible and historically have stood fast in their faith and patriotism to protect the United States and the Constitution thereof. The Obama Administration's previous attack was on National Guard troops on a national guard base. However this month Obama's minions got caught yet again assaulting, insulting, and lying about Christians in the military, however not to part-time warriors, this time he sent his hoard against active duty personnel being shipped out to a war zone.

Blind Faith = Stupid Faith

One of the classic low-octane assaults on Christianity by nonbelievers is that Christians blindly follow. After that the idea of exactly what Christians are blindly following gets kind of muddled: a god that doesn't exist, a charismatic leader, a paper pope, a real pope, a book filled with fables, a cult built on lies. Unfortunately that's how the fallen world sees us, blindly following something that they know doesn't exist. In their eyes Christians are just plain stupid.

I've been told I have blind faith in a God that doesn't exist by a Wiccan. Seriously. In hindsight my rolling on the floor in gales of laughter was probably the wrong reaction, but come on - think about it. It's funny.

In reality if these assaults were educated assaults there would be far fewer assaults. God doesn't want  blind followers Name one religion that demands that you test everything you're taught. A true Christian know that one of his or her  responsibilities is to learn what's good and bad:
19 Do not quench the Spirit; 20 do not despise prophetic utterances. 21 But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good; 22 abstain from every form of evil. (1 Thessalonians 5:19-22)
No other holy book asks its reader to put what it says to the test. The Bible can make this bold statement because its truthfulness passes every test put to it.

Obama's War Against Christians In The Military

The American Family Association who's main sin is the unwillingness to allow pornography to inundate the American family was recognized by the US Army for their work in trying to clean up street advertising, radio, and TV. In recognition of their efforts the U.S. Army labeled the American Family Association as a Domestic Hate Group. During a special briefing at Camp Shelby, an official briefing listed the AFA as a hate group and linked the AFA with the completely whacked out Westboro "Baptist Church" (I used the double quotes to signify that Westboro is like Grape Nuts Flakes - the flakes are not grapes and not nuts. Westboro is not Baptist and by they're beliefs and actions they're not Church either) Soldiers were threatened with punishment for participating in groups like the AFA.

The Army's response was swift as it was spineless.

Can A Christian Celebrate Halloween?

The easy answer to the question 'Can a Christian celebrate Halloween' is "It depends" Unfortunately that's also the hard answer. 

The word Halloween comes from "All Hallows Eve", it was the night before All Saints Day (All Hallows Day)  where the man-made saints of the Catholic church were worshiped. At some point the tradition of going door to door requesting small cakes in exchange for prayers for the dead relatives of the house became part of the ritual and eventually became today's 'Trick or Treat'.

Of course an already pre-existing holiday was hijacked by the Catholic church, the Irish holiday of Samhain (pronounced sow-en because that's what it was originally called (Sauin). As for the spelling? Got me, I'm not Irish). Samhain is the shortened version of the Irish word Mí na Samhna which quite literally means "November" and is the celebration of the end of summer, which was a popular celebration among the Gaelic peoples. Samhain marks the end of summer, flocks are brought down from the hills and a great many animals are killed - you can store meat, but live animals have to be fed and winter is a time of near famine for the Irish. Strong breeding stock is separated from the flocks/herds and the rest are slaughtered. When this is complete it's party time. Samhain was celebrated with bonfires (because bonfires and parties always go well together) called samhnagan and religious ceremonies grew up around the celebrations. One of the many ancient Celtic religions beliefs during the time of Samhain is that the doorways to the Otherworld opened enough for fairies and the dead to communicate with us.

Obama's Shutdown Shuts Down Military Chaplains

Only 17% of the government is shut down, so does that mean frivolous golf outings are stopped? Have multi-million dollar wagyu beef dinner extravaganzas for such non-VIPs as Jay-Z and Beyonce been put on the back burner? Has luxury vacations on the tax payer dime been put on hold? Has the staff of the first lady, who really has no job, been cut to under 1,000 people? (Which would still be twice that of her predecessors) Has the house and senate gyms and cafeterias been shut down forcing the congressmen to carry baloney on white with Miracle Whip to work? Of course not! 

What has been shut down the the ability of the American people to access national parks and monuments regardless of whether  they were managed by the federal government or not, and payments to families of dead soldiers. In this time of financial crisis our president has taken this opportunity to continue his war on christian military members and on the catholic church. But wait! There's more!

Pope Francis: The Church Is A Woman

Today the pope let us know that the church is a woman. Obviously he hasn't read "A Woman Rides The Beast"

Thanks to The Berean Call

A Great Way To Deal With Economic Persecution

As Eternity Matters puts it: Wise as serpents, innocent as doves."

As we've heard, but not in the Lame Main Stream Media, Christian businesses are under attack by the forces of the enemy. Satan is using homosexuals to persecute Christian owned businesses simply for the act of being a Christian owned business. To me this makes sense as a strategy - the United States is a country based on business, so Satan will attack Christians based on business. 

A Christian business in Iowa is under attack for turning down a gay wedding 

A Christian bakery in Lakewood Colorado is under attack for turning down a gay wedding

A Christian florist in Washington is under attack for turning down a gay wedding

So how do we Christians handle these attacks? Simple - we act like Christ.

The Pope To Teach The World Idolatry

Pope Francis intends to consecrate the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on October 13, 2013. I'm not sure if anyone told the Pope but the world is not his to consecrate. "Consecration" is used in the Catholic Church as the setting apart for the service of God of both persons and objects. Now God did make the world (and the universe it's in) for his own purpose, how glad God must be to see that Pope Elliot Carver Francis agrees with him.

Unfortunately Pope Francis is not consecrating the world to God, he's consecrating the world to the carved image of a dead woman.

Myth Conception #2 - People Are Basically Good Without God

A favorite myth among the atheists is that people are basically good and moral beings and left to their own without involvement from religions they're just dandy. The only real problem with this theory is that it's not true. Left to their own without moral guidance people are evil, nasty, selfish, murderous animals. History records atrocity after atrocity after atrocity with millions slaughtered for purely evil reasons. Then again history records atrocity after atrocity with millions slaughtered for reasons that sounded pretty good at the time.

To a Christian goodness is a sign that God is working within us, guiding us and sanctifying us. It's an indication of a long term building project that God has for each one of us. It is God that is the one that defines what is good, He sets the standards and He expects that these standards be met. Paul tells us that goodness is one of the fruits of God's spirit:
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. (Galatians 5:22-23)
But what is goodness to an atheist? It's not all that good;

God's Chosen People Have Not Chosen God

American Jews are a proud lot, they're proud of their heritage, they're proud of their community, they're proud to be Jewish. But are they proud of their special relationship with God? Not so much.

Every day more and more Jews are identifying themselves as "Jews of no religion". These self titled Secular or Cultural Jews would be much more honest if they called themselves JINOs: Jews In Name Only. They are as disconnected from their heritage and community as they are from God. As the prophesied Great Falling Away (2 Thessalonians 2:3) continues to roll across the social landscape, we find that the special ones, the people God chose for himself (Deuteronomy 7:6) are no better than we are.

Good Bye Chuck, Thank You and See You Soon

Dear Father in Heaven

I know that You said that no man is righteous, not even one (Romans 3:10) but one of us wretched souls has gone to meet You at Your home and compared to a pathetic sinner like me, Chuck Smith comes much closer to righteous than I ever will. You blessed us with the gift of Chuck Smith so long ago to me, but to You it’s just the blink of Your eye, in Ventura CA, June 25 1927. It was a Saturday to us. You guided Chuck with Your hand through LIFE Bible College and smiled as he was ordained a pastor in Your word a the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel. The angels must have rejoiced as You helped Chuck plant a non-denominational church in Corona CA and they must have gone wild with joy as You whispered in his ear move to a small church in Costa Mesa CA in December 1965. The small church’s name was Calvary Chapel.

Pope Pushes Unchristian Values, Calls Christianity "Nonsense"

I didn't say Satanic in the headline, instead I said Unchristian, but I will say "Satanic" here. Because he did, and he is. 

In a recent interview with an Italian atheist reporter Eugenio Scalfari, Pope Frank came up with even more outrageous claims, one of which is this when asked by Scalfari if the pope was going to try to convert him:
"Proselytism is solemn nonsense, it makes no sense."
For those of you unfamiliar with the word, proselytism means 'religious conversion'. Just for fun, let's compare what the self proclaimed "infallible" vicar of Christ said to an atheist reporter with what our true Lord and Savior Jesus Christ said to his disciples: 
18 And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:18-20)
This is where the eleven faithful disciples became the eleven Apostles. (Disciples means "followers", Apostles means "People who were sent to do something") Jesus commanded them, and us, to convert all the nations and baptize them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. However pope Frank says "That's nonsense."

Myth Conceptions

In order to justify their own beliefs, nonbelievers have conceived myths about God, Jesus, and the Bible in an effort to tear down the majesty of our Lord and Savior and replace it with their own personal idea of what is true. The more I study these myths (anti-truths?) that atheists are spreading the more I truly believe that the Prince of the Earth is controlling their motives. I've postulated in the past that atheistic hate and disdain for God is due to their own self loathing and to be honest the more I study atheist myth conceptions I find myself agreeing with my earlier opinion.

Here's one of the more poorly thought out myths that our atheist friends enjoy spreading:
