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.

"I walk through this sinful world as a 
pilgrim in a foreign country" - CH Spurgeon
I hope you all had a grand day of giving thanks and praise and enjoying God's bountiful blessings. We were doubly blessed to have a houseful of our children, their friends, and our friends. In the end we had a total of 16 guests all gathered to give thanks to the Lord and enjoy each others fellowship. We were able to wrestle Birdzilla into the roaster and sealed his fate with stuffing and cranberries, and generate enough leftovers to keep the mad sandwich artists in each of us busy for a week.

Any homeowner knows that during the holidays everyone seems to congregate in the kitchen, doubly so when the only football game on is a real stinkeroo. We recently had a chance to remodel our kitchen so my bride decided to make it huge, in fact when all was said and done it encompassed the original kitchen and the entire family room. We were able to comfortably fit everyone in the kitchen including the grandbaby, all her accouterments, and three dogs who gladly volunteered to keep the floor cleared of anything that spilled and could possibly create a slipping hazard. Cooking that big meal used to be a chore, but with many hands it turned into a grand cooking party with everyone (excluding the grandbaby and two of the three dogs) participating in the preparations

Thanksgiving is a deeply theological act, so what about atheists?

Sad, but Praise The Lord - this child has a future

A Christian couple in Norway has had their children taken away by the state and placed in foster card for "Christian radicalism and indoctrination"

Pastor steps down because of "too much God talk" - Rob Bell is involved. Go figure.

Several suspects in the case of murdered of Indiana pastor’s wife Amanda Blackburn have been arrested

The liberal Left loves to celebrate perversion and sin, personally I thought I'd never see a national magazine celebrate incest. Unfortunately Cosmo missed the point of the story, this isn't about incest, it's about the results of bad parenting. Brothers and sisters, it's only going to get worse.

Celestial Seasonings Tea is as dead to me as Starbucks. Maybe more so, for multiple reasons.

Christian video games? Not sure if this is compromise, conforming, or evangelism

Hate filled atheist Bill Maher demands that the press question Christians on the possibility of the world coming to an end. Maher and his liberal ilk are constantly telling us that the world is going to end and they constantly set dates for the world coming to an end (usually in a decade) if we don't stop doing something they don't like: burning coal, driving cars, cutting rainforest trees... yet they castigate Christians for the same thing. Is it ironic that Maher doesn't see the irony in his arrogance?

Atheists claim that the war on Christmas is an exaggeration, a hoax, and an attempt to gain attention by Christians. Then they go to war on Christmas.

The more science tries to disprove the bible, the more they prove the bible to be true.

Iraqi Christians face deportation in the US while Obama offers asylum to thousands of Muslims

Religion of Peace Update - Two Christians in Yemen, both converts from Islam, have been ambushed and killed because of their faith

  1. I'll bet the Christian family in Norway wouldn't have been bothered if they were Muslim. And they certainly won't be allowed to come to the USA to escape persecution.

    So because the world gets hooked on video games, that should be a reason to get our kids hooked on them? Calling them "Christian" doesn't solve the problem of hooking our kids on their electronics to where they don't know how to socialize. There is NO need for this at all!
