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 mentioned earlier that I was beta testing the Brave web browser. It's still in development so most of the features you come to expect in a browser are missing, such as bookmarking and accessing your history, but believe me, this stuff is going to be good. Opening a web page in a browser which automatically blocks ads and Adobe Flash nonsense is incredible. It's so awesome having your web page open immediately and the fact that the text you're reading isn't covered by slimey ads creeping across the page and distracting nonsensical and inappropriate  ads all over the pages makes reading the text a joy, even if it's weird text.

Meanwhile, I'm trying to drum up a blog entry on cessationism (yeah, it's that whole Rick Joyner thing again) and I ran across a statement lately that said "the age of the prophets ends with the coming of God’s son Jesus into the world." Does anyone have any insight to that? I can find nothing to corroborate it. I agree with Dr. MacArthur when he says "the written Word of God is perfectly sufficient, containing all the revelation we need", I'm just doing the Berean thing.

The angels in heaven must be singing up a storm! A Jewish writer of secular erotic romance turns to God for answers after Sandy Hook and strays into the New Testament, she's now given up the erotic writing and has been baptized as a brand new Christian. Pray for her growing maturity in Christ and take a moment to greet her into the family!

For the liturgical among us it's Lent, but remember, you don't have to give up muskrat!

Britain, once home to the greatest preaching on earth, is a lost country ignoring God wholesale

Is Mormonism really just Islam regifted? Hattip to Glenn Chatfield for finding this gem

If you ever wondered how utterly clueless the Huffington Post can be, here's their pinnacle of ignorance

Cold Case: An 83 year old retired Catholic priest has been charged in the 1960 murder of a school teacher and former beauty queen in 1960

Wait, what? A lawyer in India filed suit against the pagan hindu god Ram for abusing his pagan hindu goddess wife Sita. Seriously, you can't make this up.

Someone is clearly getting their theology from Marvel Comics

Religion of Peace Update #1 - ISIS is now using children to decapitate their prisoners. And the only reason why they're doing it is to upset you.

Religion of Peace Update #2 - Just because you don't see it in the news doesn't mean it's not happening. Here is the December 2015 recap of Muslim Persecution of Christians from Gatestone Institute

Religion of Peace Update #3 - The lesson to be learned here is that everything in Christianity is seen as an insult by Islam.

If this doesn't make you think, I don't know what will:

"All religions that are not harmonious with the New Age must be eliminated..."

Making marriage a laughingstock.

Join the coalition Texas Loves Life in prayer for the Supreme Court as the court considers an important Texas pro-life law in the current session.

Christians are undergoing Ethnic Cleansing in Iraq. Pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ who are deep into their tribulation, for this will be universal sooner than we suspect.


  1. England has been lost to Islam and secularism for many years now.

    Ref. the Huffington post article, how could the guy admire or respect Mohammed, who was a terrorist!?!?

  2. Hi Doug,

    Quite a line up!

    So happy to read the testimony of Shoshanna - the new Jewish believer.

    Don't know what to think about the Trump video. He describes himself as a Protestant - but - no repentance and what sounds like a Roman Catholic reverence for the eucharist.

    The Huffington Post piece - uh pinnacle of ignorance is a good description.

    And yes, the elimination of Biblical Christianity (virtually the only religion NOT in harmony with the New Age) is well under way. The link you provided links to an article about Drucker and how he wooed evangelical leaders in the 1980's to be part of his "social experiment". We see the results now. How many evangelicals even realize how close official Christianity now is to what used to be called "New Age"? One clue - Jesus Calling.

    Thanks as always.
