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.

From 1203 to 1805

  1. From 1203 to 1805
    50 million Christians died(source)
    Suffering at the hands of Rome
    ‘Cause they believed in Christ alone. 
  2. They died through Europe especially Spain
    For they saw all but Christ in vain
    He suffered by His death for men
    To save them from their awful sin.
  3. 600 years of martyred saints
    That history cannot erase
    With iron heel and iron hand
    The Roman Popes rule the land.
  4. Those ignorant of history
    May be swept into apostasy
    We won’t be lulled by Rome’s sweet lie
    With 50 million reasons why.
  5. Salvation is by faith alone
    In Christ alone by Grace alone
    A Sovereign God gives faith to man
    Salvation’s in the Maker’s hand.
  6. This gospel offends Rome today
    They offer up another way
    A counterfeit. A compromise
    Beware the ancient Papal lie
  7. With such a cloud of witnesses
    Who by grace died in their Lord
    Recall their memory to say
    By those same faiths we live today.
Note that this song is about the inquistion, not particularly the Counter Reformation.

  1. Appreciate the repost, Doug. The history of the inquisition is real. These are real people who were waterboarded and killed for their Christian faith - salvation by grace, not by works of man's hands.

    Why do we never hear of these things at church?
