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.

WWUTT Wednesday - OGCJM

The phrase "Only God can judge me" has become a fad inspiring t-shirt and tattoo artists to cash in on the craze. This craze was started by a "song" of the same title performed by Tupak Shakur, the same Tupak Shakur who was involved in multiple shootings including two that were directed at him, assault,  sexual assault, has had nine bullets plucked out of his body from multiple murder attempts, and has served prison time for first degree sexual abuse, bail violation, and three counts of molestation. 

It would be nice to say that Shakur found Jesus in prison and dedicated his life to Christ, and returned to his roots to help those in need in his old neighborhood, but his story doesn't end that way. In September 1996 Tupac Shakur was shot outside of a Las Vegas casino, his last words are unprintable. His "song" Only God Can Judge Me appeared on the last album he released in his life time. He probably knows a lot about judging now

  1. That saying is one of those things that is true in a sense, but misses the larger point: Yes, God will judge your eternal sole, but He also told us in no uncertain terms what his standards for that judgment will be. All we are doing is sharing those standards -- and the desperately needed way to avoid his wrath.
