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.

ISIS Strikes Again - 30 Christians Brothers Slaughtered In Islamist Rage.

A new video released by ISIS features a rant against "Christian crusaders" and shows 15 Ethiopian Christian men dressed in black and shot in the head in the desert and while 15 other Ethiopian Christian men dressed in orange decapitated on a beach. A murderer wearing a mask said in English with a clearly American accent:
To the nation of the cross, we’re back again... Muslim blood that was shed under the hands of your religion is not cheap...We swear to Allah ... you will not have safety even in your dreams until you embrace Islam,
ISIS even gave the 29-minute video a semi-coherent title "Until There Came to Them Clear Evidence" Analysts state that the video appears to be primarily aimed at offering Isamist justification for ISIS murder sprees, starving their captives to death, and driving Christians from their homes. The video starts with a rant on what it calls "a history of Christian-Muslim relations", followed by scenes of Islamic fanatics destroying Christian churches, graves and icons which is more accurate of a history lesson than their rant. 

A masked fighter brandishing a pistol then delivers a long statement, saying Christians must convert to Islam or pay jizya tax prescribed by the Quran. The jizya tax is actually a punitive bribe (enforced by penalty of death) that non-Muslims must pay as a sign of their subjugation to the Muslims, and it is mandated in the Qur’an. The dhimmis (people who thought they were escaping death by paying the tax) historically starve to death because the tax is so massive. Dhimmis, by Islamic tradition MUST be "miserable, disgraced, humiliated, and belittled."

ISIS claims that their maniacal slaughter is permitted by the Qur'an if Christians refuse to convert to Islam or decline to pay a an exorbitant and punitive protection tax in lands where the group of zealots holds sway. The Qur'an is replete with references to forced conversion to Islam by fighting non-muslims until they are dead, or accept forced conversion.

In the past week alone there have been 244 Jihadi attacks and 5 suicide bombings leaving 397 people dead and 386 people critically injured. That's just one week.

Please keep our brothers and sisters who are going through this tribulation in your prayers. Their innocence and courage before Satan's hoards truly shows the love and faith they have for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. And pray that when our time of tribulation comes we can stand in love and glorify Christ Jesus with our love
12 Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal among you, which comes upon you for your testing, as though some strange thing were happening to you; 13 but to the degree that you share the sufferings of Christ, keep on rejoicing, so that also at the revelation of His glory you may rejoice with exultation. 14 If you are reviled for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you. (1 Peter 4:12-14)
Standing in solidarity with our brothers and sisters in tribulation for Christ's name
