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.

Random Bits

"I walk through this sinful world as a 
pilgrim in a foreign country" - CH Spurgeon
ISIS, ISIL, IS... what ever. That name is dead to me, any of those names are acronyms I refuse to use any more. Primarily because IS stands for "Islamic State" which gives those agents of Satan a legitimacy they do not deserve. Instead I'm going to follow the example of the House of Commons and refer to these savages and murderers as Daesh. The word Daesh is an adapted acronym of their Arabic name - Dawlat al-Islamiyah f'al-Iraq w Belaad al-Sham - is similar to another Arabic word - das - which means 'to trample down' or 'crush', and these thugs don't like it. They never explain why they don't like it, they just don't. They don't like it so much, they have threatened to cut the tongues out of anyone that uses it. That's a way to raise the opinions of anyone you want to impress - threaten to mutilate them.

In the words of former Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott  "Daesh hates being referred to by this term, and what they don't like has an instinctive appeal to me." So yeah - Daesh Daesh Daesh. What are you going to do? Kill me? You can't threaten me with Heaven.

A great explanation why we Christians need to stand against the acts of depravity that God condemns and this sick society loves.

Why I am not a Continuationist

All other ground is sinking sand

Now that homosexual faux marriage is all the rage among the glitteratzi and intelligensia, this is what we're headed for next.

Pop quiz: What part of Romans 12:2 is this church completely missing?

U2 front man and psudochristian Bono has teamed up with Eugene Peterson, author of the satire paraphrase of the bible, The Message. This pair, which has teamed up to make a movie about the book of Psalms. Personally I  can think of no one better suited to spread misinformation, confusion, and sophistry about the book of Psalms than Eugene Peterson

Religion of Peace Update #1 - Mr Obama (you remember him, right?) has said that  Islam was “woven into the fabric” of the United States since its founding. To be totally honest, he's absolutely correct. He's clearly counting on his audience not knowing enough history to understand the truth of his statement. Click on the link for a history lesson.

Religion of Peace Update #2 - Mr Obama (you remember him, right?) has said that  Islam was “woven into the fabric” of the United States since its founding. To be totally honest, he's absolutely correct.... oh wait,  I said that already. Well it's true, and it's also true that Mr. Obama knows that the average American is too ignorant of history to realize the foul truth behind his condescending statement. History is the greatest story that can ever be told, it's also the most heart breaking.

Religion of Peace Update #3 - A hacker from Kosovo hacked an on-line retailer in Illinois and  put together a “kill list” for Daesh with the identities of 1,351 U.S. government and military

Please Mr. Worship leader, if you're going to insist on playing performance pieces that the congregation can only sit and watch, please play this. I can (and often do) listen to this all day long. (And please dear reader, if you know of any Christian congregation that plays this kind of music in their service in the north Denver/Greely/Loveland area PLEASE tell me)

Just because you're a Christian it does not mean that you're immune to ignorance. That being said, I aver that if ignorance is bliss, the editor that allowed this story to be published must be ecstatic. (hey - if this Random Bit generates a lot of comments, bring them!)

I love Dr. Tony Evans! There's even a mountain in Colorado named after us. I can't say enough about his recent sermon on race. Please preach it from the mountain tops, even ours.

Why Paul wrote 1 Timothey 2:12: Bromleigh McCleneghan

It's got to be true, I saw it on the internet


  1. On the "Religion of Peace" update regarding what the founding fathers thought, remember the Muslim congressman a few years back that made a stir by taking his oath of office on Jefferson's copy of the Qu'ran? It was interesting to me to read why Jefferson had a copy of the Qu'ran. It was so he could find out what they believed when he sent his troops to war with them. (Remember that line from the Marine hymn, "to the shores of Tripoli"? Yeah, that was America's war against Muslim pirates.) But, then, we don't actually expect people whose father is the father of lies to present the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, do we?

    1. Someone once said we get the leadership we deserve. That's being proven true every day

  2. "Daesh" -- I like it, and I hope I can remember it!

    I saw that article about the "Potential Church" (it just showed up this morning -- two weeks later than the date?!?!). My immediate thought is this is why they are still just a "potential" church. Bunch of goats.

    A movie about Psalms. More blaspheming God is all I can expect.

    Those of us who actually study history have always known what Islam is, and what America's history shows about our actions. I wonder how many people really ever thought about not only "shores of Tripoli" but also "halls of Montezuma" -- such as, What the heck does that mean?!?! Very few, I'd wager.

    Islam and slavery?!?! I'm shocked, shocked I tell you. Um, how many of the slaves which came to the USA were sold into slavery by Muslims, let alone other Africans in general?

    So if you decide not to support a candidate you previously said you would, suddenly that makes you a non-Christian. I wonder where that can be found in the Bible.

    Bromleigh McCleneghan, and his ilk, seem to find a million ways to justify illicit sexual relations. SEX seems to be the primary focus of so many false teachers.

    By the way, I've been on top of Mt Evans. COLD.

    1. 1. The article about the Potential Church - it took me 2 weeks to put together this post, so that's my fault (I've been busy helping my doctors with their yacht payments)

      2. After that post I wrote on Peterson's slaughter of Psalm 1 I haven't had the stomach to write anything more on the Mess of the Message

      3. The most popular reaction I got from the younger, historically unschooled, generation was "Muslim? I thought they were Barbary pirates"

      4. 100%

      5. It would have been less Christian to honor that pledge after what Trump did once the pledge was agreed to

      6. Bromleigh is a woman, that's why I put the remark about 1 Timothy 2:12 in there

      7. Yeah, it is. At the visitors center on the 11,500 foot mark everything above there is equivalent to being north of the Arctic Circle. My children who were raised in North Dakota were unfazed at seeing snow in July.

  3. Doug,

    You misunderstood. The post about the Potential church was dated two weeks ago but just showed upon Museum of Idolatry. I had just read it right before I saw your post. So it wasn't your fault. I don't know how the date got that way.

    Bromleigh a woman?!? Never can tell with those weird names, but my comment still stands.
