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
With all the mud slinging and fingerpointing going on I've been doing a lot of thinking and praying about our government lately. Going back to my civics class (yes, I'm old enough to have been in school when they taught civics) I know that this country is governed by law, not by people. The true leader of our country is The United States Constitution. Mr. Trump leads leads the executive branch, Mr. Pense and Mr Ryan lead the legislative branch, and Justice Roberts is the head of the judicial branch. Each man has immense responsibility, but each one gets their "marching orders" and their political power from The United States Constitution. 

Trump, Pense, Ryan, and Roberts can all be legally replaced but The United States Constitution cannot The Constitution is what they and military men swear a sacred oath to defend and uphold. I firmly believe that when Romans 13 tells us to obey our leader, in the Untied States God is talking about The United States Constitution,. yes we are to respect these elected and lawfully appointed officials as they carry out the requirements of The United States Constitution, but to blindly follow them in a cult of personality is political idolatry, and God our Father told us quite clearly  “You shall have no other gods before me"

No one in the bible talked more about hell than Jesus

Mr. Furtick promises to commit to teaching and not engage in hollering or wild stuff during his sermon. Yeah, right. While watching the video why not play the Steven Furtick Sermon Game - count how many times he says I, Me, or My.

On May 4th President Trump did something that Mr. Obama refused to do bin both terms of office: he hosted a National Day of Prayer event at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

They're not persecuting Christians, they're rejecting God

The United States stands with persecuted Christians around the globe

Religion of Peace Update #1 - There was not enough evidence to convict Christian pastor Zafar Bhatti of blasphemy, which Pakistani law mandates a death sentence, so a Pakistani court sent him to prison for the rest of his life

Religion of Peace Update #2 - US Muslim enters a Christian conference and is escorted out. In the parking lot he makes a Facebook video showing off his weapons telling people to "Be scared" He was charged with terrorism and possession of meth, and then gets busted on a drug test forfeiting his bond that his son put up for him and getting himself thrown back into prison.

When apostate, egalitarian, charismaniac female preachers are no longer accepted in the more traditional, bible-believing denominations, where do they end up? Hillsong

Pray for our brothers and sisters at the Pyongyang University of Science and Technology

Jennifer LeClaire, the patron saint of the Sneaky Squid Spirit, was told by God to operate in the "True Prophetic" and model integrity and other goofy hypocrisy

Speaking of Jennifer LeClaire's nonsensical invention of the Sneaky Squid Spirit, I wonder what she has to say about octopusses... octopi... octopeese? (it's octopodes)

Franklin Graham took to the stage to reveal the "real reason" Christians are being persecuted. Personally I think he was close, but he got it wrong. The real reason is here

I like Chris Pratt, not just because of Guardians of The Galaxy, not just in spite of Jurassic World, but because of things like this

GOOD NEWS!!! The Kentucky Court of Appeals has ruled that people are free to decline orders that would require them to produce something that conflict with his religious beliefs.

The Southern Baptist Convention sends help to Steven Furtick's Elevation Church. It's got to be true, I saw it on the internet!

    1. They just kept popping up, it's God was waiving a dead sneaky squid spirit in front of me saying "look here, now over here..."

  2. I can't stand Steven Furtick...he gets worst over the years. Now he sounds like he's a wannabe TD Jakes.

    1. I fully understand your disdain for Mr Furtick, and he's a living example of why Matthew 5:44 is so difficult to follow - he's using our Lord and Savior's words for self enrichment and self aggrandization. My biggest quandary is, how do we rescue those that have fallen under his spell?
