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 didn't realize how long it has been since I posted regularly. It's been a very long time since I've been able to sit down and type, and read, and not necessarily in that order. So I need to start with a prayer request - my stepson recently had a catastrophic snowboarding accident, his leg was shattered. It took seven screws and a metal brace that looks like a shin guard to bolt his ankle back together. Then acute compartment syndrome set it, an incredibly painful condition that can lead to  muscle loss, amputation, infection, nerve damage, and kidney failure. He didn't lose his leg but he was close. Prayers are needed that he recovers physically, financially, and mostly spiritually. 

So that's where I've been hiding lately, taking care of children, grandchildren, and fulfilling my bosses needs. I may end up calling 2017 the Year Of The Management. I've been through 5 different managers and 2 different directors. And they also fixed my back! It wasn't my back, it was my hip, and it was a nurse that listened to me and diagnosed the problem correctly. Nurses rock. 

My next post will be the False Teacher of the Year, these past weeks have been very hectic so it's been a long hard effort. There's so many out there to choose from, and no, it won't be The Orville, that's just atheist propaganda

Perry Noble fail. Pray for those undiscerning bugs who stumble into his web of false teaching

Irish Catholic Priest tells Christians to get rid of "Christmas" At first it sounds shocking... then it starts to make sense

Critics complain that the Museum of the Bible represents the Judeo-Christian perspective but leaves out other religions... ummm yea, I also noticed that the Holocaust museum doesn't mention much about advances in aerospace technology.

The Red Cross is removing the cross?

The Middle East is in flames because Trump recognized the capital of Israel as the capital of Israel (I  don't' get it either)

I knew it! The new religion which only barely surpasses veganism as a replacement for the one true God

Mr. Pope doesn't like the way Jesus taught us to pray and is planning to edit His words

The electronic atheist in your house (Amazon fixed this bug almost immediately)

How do tell a church to avoid? When the pastor doesn't understand Christ's incarnation

Once upon a time I thought the Christians of North Dakota were filled with discernment and wouldn't put up with the likes of Rodney Howard Brown, the Holy Ghost bartender and his unGodly nonsense. But then this was Dickinson, right on the oil patch. Then again, I remember a Lutheran minister in Surrey ND preaching from the Gospel of Thomas. Sigh

It wasn't all that long ago that we were promised that this wouldn't happen by those who advocated such nonsense

A kidnapped British optician was slaughtered after playing Amazing Grace

The Church of Sweden believes that the title God The Father isn't good enough for them

I've been a big fan of Byzantine history since I discovered that there was such a thing (note to properly educated readers: American public schools do not teach Byzantine history, they don't cover the period between between 450 AD and 1492) However I always thought the story about Helena of Bythinia finding all kinds of relics was Byzantine political propaganda... until now

Was the most famous quote from Philippians penned due to an improbable victory in a church softball game? It's got to be true, I saw it on the internet

  1. So sorry to hear about your stepson's injury. May the Lord help him and your family in all ways to work this for good.

    A wonderful devotional book on the Lord's Prayer has been re-released. Perhaps your stepson might find it helpful as he recovers.
