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.

When I Want Theology I Get It From A Multimillionaire Boy-Toy

John Kerry, the most effective secretary of state that the United States has had since 2009, has gone into Full Fantasy mode claiming that the US has been ordained by God to protect the Muslim world from the ravages of global warming. He claims it's in the bible. Then again this is the secretary of state that blamed Israel for the Palestinian attacks on Israel

If you get the idea that I do not like Mr. Kerry you're wrong, I don't know Mr. Kerry so how can I not like him. I recognize him as a weak partisan anti-Semite politician that is unprepared to meet the rigors of his office and instead of running the State Department it appears that he uses his office to advance his personal political agenda. That I don't like, but himself - I hear he's a nice guy.

At a ceremony held on September 3, 2014 to appoint lawyer Shaarik Zafar to be the Department of State special representative to Muslim communities Mr. Kerry said it was the United States’ Biblical "responsibility” to “confront climate change,” including to protect “vulnerable Muslim majority counties.” Kerry said that Scripture, in particular the Book of Genesis, make it very clear that it is our “duty” to protect the planet and we should look at Muslim countries “with a sense of stewardship of earth,” He further intoned most piously “That responsibility comes from God.”

Of course we have to take care of the earth, God loaned it to us
23 ‘The land, moreover, shall not be sold permanently, for the land is Mine; for you are but aliens and sojourners with Me. 24 Thus for every piece of your property, you are to provide for the redemption of the land. (Leviticus 25:23-24)
Did I say loaned? sure did. 
The earth is the LORD'S, and all it contains, The world, and those who dwell in it. (Psalm 24:1)
The Earth is the Lord's to do with as He pleases, it was the critters and plants that He gave us:
26 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27 God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. 28 God blessed them; and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” 29 Then God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the surface of all the earth, and every tree which has fruit yielding seed; it shall be food for you; 30 and to every beast of the earth and to every bird of the sky and to every thing that moves on the earth which has life, I have given every green plant for food”; and it was so. (Genesis 1:26-30)
So what does the bible say about Muslims and Islam? Nothing. Nada. Zip. Zilch. Not a peep. 

I have read in places that Abaddon of Revelation 9:11 is allegory for the Muslim world, but that has yet to be seen. Islam didn't even come on to the world radar until late in the 7th century so it was not mentioned in either the new or the old testament, and if it has been mentioned in prophesy, again that has yet to be seen.

The Arab world however is a different story, and yes, you can separate the Arab world from the Muslim world, I've met Arabs of multiple religious backgrounds, besides Muslims I've met Orthodox (Greek) Catholics, Coptic Christians, Maronites (Orthodox Catholics who are actually associate with the RCC) Arab Jews, Druze, even Arab Protestants. 

Yes, the bible does say quite a bit about the Arabs. The Arab world originated with Abraham's first son Ishmael, son of Hagar, Sarai's servant. When Hagar found out she was pregnant she ran fearing reprisal from Sarai. The angel of the Lord found Hagar and said;
Then the angel of the Lord said to her, “Return to your mistress, and submit yourself to her authority.” 10 Moreover, the angel of the Lord said to her, “I will greatly multiply your descendants so that they will be too many to count.” 11 The angel of the Lord said to her further, “Behold, you are with child, And you will bear a son; And you shall call his name Ishmael, Because the Lord has given heed to your affliction. 12 “He will be a wild donkey of a man, His hand will be against everyone, And everyone’s hand will be against him; And he will live to the east of all his brothers.” (Genesis 26:9-12)
Abraham actually had numerous children, and the children of his concubines and from wives other than Sara there were Zimran, Jokshan, Medan, Midian, Ishbak, and Shuah, These children also had descendants but the bible says 
Now Abraham gave all that he had to Isaac; but to the sons of his concubines, Abraham gave gifts while he was still living, and sent them away from his son Isaac eastward, to the land of the east. (Genesis 25:5-6)
So all the brothers and nephews of Ishmael joined him in the east and they became the Arab world, which eventually became the Muslim world. But this protection that we must provide for the Muslim world that John Kerry talks about is not in the Bible. In fact God actually blesses Ishmael and his descendants:
20 As for Ishmael, I have heard you; behold, I will bless him, and will make him fruitful and will multiply him exceedingly. He shall become the father of twelve princes, and I will make him a great nation. (Genesis 17:20)
The Arab world received a blessing from God and John Kerry thinks we can do better than that? True, John Kerry is a Roman Catholic, and they believe that they can do better than God (why else would they have invented the Mass, confession, penance, purgatory, praying to dead people and elevation of Mary to the ranks of holy deity?) But a blessing from God Himself? That's a lot more than Asia, North & South America, and Europe got. They should be protecting us.

As for global warming, come on John, still hammering on that tired old fraud?  It's a hoax. It's a scam. It's junk science at best, and a plot to change the industrial base of Europe and North America at worst. Not to mention that Global Warming is over. Don't worry about it John! God told us 
"While the earth remains, Seedtime and harvest, And cold and heat, And summer and winter, And day and night Shall not cease." (Genesis 8:22)
If you think you can do better Mr. Kerry, please tell us how.

  1. I have never read much into global warming, but I had no idea it was thought of to be a scam! I'm going to have to look into that!
