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
It's been quite a busy week here in the shadow of My Mountain. Along with lots of visits with my ever expanding circle of doctors, I was on-call this week and I even got paged during the annual church picnic. The only thing I've had a chance to write (besides trouble tickets) is a response over at Alec Satin's While It's Yet Day. (You get extra points if you use "42" as the answer to an improperly worded question too)

That's not to say I didn't receive a lot of inspiration this week., Studying Hebrews with Pastor Paratus brings a lot of inspiration to mind, but so far most of the articles rattling around in my head will all be titled "What To Say To The JW At Your Door". Hebrews has the answer to all their accusations. But yesterday a friend asked my wife "Why doesn't your husband like Steven Furtick?" It's not that I don't like Steven Furtick, I've never met him. If we ever meet I may come to like him, but after Hey Haters! I'm not sure it would be a whole lot. Our friend is one of those souls that love flashing lights, loud secular music, and programs written by emergent, ecumenical authors whose works don't hold up to biblical standards. She's enthusiastic but we may have to talk about discernment. I'll write her a an answer to her question, but my next article will be on Mr. Furtick because I need to get away from the NAR for a while.

Mr. Pope displays even more biblical ignorance. If God wants to use war for His purposes, He will use it for His purposes... like He did throughout the Old Testament, and He did it without Mr. Pope's permission

Recently Andy Stanley has said that the bible should not be the foundation of Christianity. My response is a bit uncharitable, so instead I'll post Michael J, Kruger's response. It's not as humorous but MUCH more charitable

Religion of Peace Update - A muslim isd standing trial in Spain accused of murdering with a “religious motivation” six Christian refugees, including a pastor, on a voyage across the Mediterranean from Africa to Europe.

Last week in Random Bits I mentioned the attacks on Christianity through the Mithras fables, now come Graham Oppy

Tony Campolo announced that he no longer wishes to be known as an Evangelical Christian. His sudden outburst of honesty is a breath of fresh air.

The reason why American burned Spurgeon's sermons and sought to kill him

Happy Anniversary fellows!


  1. Leah Remini needs to be very careful. I've read stories in the past about what happens to those who expose Scientology -- the same thing which happens to enemies of Hillary.

    Interesting bit of Spurgeon history -- I never knew that!
