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'm not sure if you noticed it, but the world is getting weird. And guess what - it's going to get worse. Accusations, incriminations, and lies are flying faster and faster. Are you dizzy yet? I have survived the days of student riots, civil uprising, presidential assassination and resignation, and personally I think it's worse now than it has been since the days of the civil war.

What as Christians do we do? We step back. We take a deep breath and try to calm the spinning heads of those that are caught up in the maelstrom of nonsense this world is becoming. We Do Not Do This! This is a time for Christians to stand apart from the crowd. We do not withdraw from society, we play our role as citizens, we obey the law and live on a level that transcends the law. We pass these days of turmoil reminding ourselves and our brothers and sisters that we are citizens of heaven.

As followers of the One who is the Truth (John 14:6), we are commanded to “speak the truth to one another” (Zechariah 8:16). As followers of the One who is love (1 John 4:8), we are commanded to do so “in love” (Ephesians 4:15). As followers of the “King of kings and Lord of lords” (Revelation 19:16), we are commanded to respect those in authority (Romans 13:1) while serving our highest authority (1 Corinthians 15:58). Our Lord, Master, and Savior is coming soon, let's be ready for Him.

  1. The principle screaming wasn't public school. Not that it matters, since public school staff often do the same.

    The Boy Scouts should have been abandoned by Christians from the very first time the said it was okay to have "gay" leaders. From then on it is all downhill.
