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
It's been quite a week here, which explains why my Friday post ended up on a Monday. After giving birth to a beautiful baby boy our daughter succumbed to a mysterious illness (there really is such a thing, they're still trying to figure it out) so a few hours after coming home from the maternity ward, she entered the ICU while Grandma and I watched over her new born and the 2 year old Wonder Imp now known as Big Sister.

We truly love the children and the chance to spoil them non-stop for a few days was delightful, but it's been a quarter of a century since we had to endure the feeding schedule of a new born baby. I'm called The Baby Whisperer and can pacify even the most ravenous of infants but at 11:00 PM, 1:00 AM, 3:00 AM, 5:00 AM... not so much.

To those that have earned the title Later in Life (lets say those that know what the 70's were truly like) and think you can hear a biological clock ticking - that's not a biological clock, that's a time bomb. Unless you're in top physical form and routinely finish full marathons in under 4:00:00, please think again. Pounding out 23 miles through downtown Boston is a cakewalk compared to keeping up with a sugared up 2 year old with a basket full of crayons. The Lord is truly good and we thank Him for the chance to spend days with the babies, and praise Him for bringing our daughter and her husband home, we love Him for the help, support, and prayers from our little family of Bereans, and now we thank and praise Him for the invention of sleep, and the chance to catch up on it.

The "Church" of England has voted to celebrate a person's "gender transition" with a church service and has asked the House of Bishops to " consider whether some nationally commended liturgical materials might be prepared to mark a person’s gender transition.” I suggest starting with Romans 1:22

Not Clickbait! - Here are five "Fake News" stories that people actually believe about early Christianity and love to spread

In Oregon gender dysphoria is no longer a mental condition that needs immediate professional attention, it's a sexual party that needs to be celebrated by 15 year olds without parental notification and paid for by you the tax payer

Has John Hagee gone full RCC on us? I suppose after the public embarrassment he created of himself with the Four Blood Moons nonsense he's got to divert our attention away from that blathering bilge scrapings and he did it quite excellently by preaching a works based gospel in 144 characters or less

Sometimes the Lord is so Good all you can do is say "Wow!" and hit your knees with prayers of thanks and praise

More Christian than Muslim refugees have been admitted to the United States in the first months of the Trump administration, reversing a trend that had seen under Mr. Obama

It's not just Islam that is murdering Christians in the name of their god

Mr. Pope has redefined the term "Saint" and as usual with his pronouncements it has nothing to do with being born again in the Holy Spirit. In fact it has nothing to do with faith in Jesus at all contrary to what a saint is as defined in 1 Corinthians 1:2

Speaking of Mr. Pope, his confidant, Antonio Spadaro, a jesuit (of course) condemns Evangelicals for mixing religion and politics. Think about it: a personal buddy of the King of a sovereign nation who claims to be the Vicar of Christ condemns protestants for being politically active.

Rob Bell is attempting to resurrect himself from the theological graveyard of forgetable heretical blather with his new book that has the book length title What is the Bible: How an Ancient Library of Poems, Letters, and Stories Can Transform the Way You Think and Feel About Everything" in which Rob Bell proves that the bible is NOT the authoritative word of God based on the fact that Rob bell doesn't believe that the  bible is the authoritative word of God.

Eugene Peterson, who made a mockery of the Word of God, with his perVersion of the Bible; The Message, says he would perform a gay wedding if asked. BUT when Lifeway threatened to take his blasphemy books off the shelf Mr. Peterson did an About Face so sharp and crisp (according to Christianity Astray) that a Marine drill sergeant would be proud. Here's a good wrap-up of the melt-down

Is God telling you to get a colonoscopy? Joyce Meyer thinks that maybe he is

If you listened to Joyce Meyer's blathering in the previous link you may have heard Winnie Banov's mental breakdown, here's the video.

If you, like many Christians world wide, pray for Charlie Guard and his family, ponder the question "Where is Benny Hinn?"

Personally I wasn't shocked that Eugene Peterson came out, then went back in the closet about gay marriage, but I hear that there's rumors that there were people that actually were shocked, Some people... a few... It's got to be true, I saw it on the internet!
