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
The bishop of Rome is unhappy with President Trump's decision to move the US Embassy to the capitol of Israel. Personally I say "So what?" It's not like I'm getting tired of the reports of Mr. Pope's exploits, many are quite amusing, it's that his arguments are misplaced. The capital of Israel is Jerusalem, and it has been since for 40 years. Does Mr. Pope demand that the capital of the Untied States continue to be Philadelphia because we moved it to Washington DC without his permission? 

In fact the United States has recognized Jerusalem as the capital of the Jewish State for 95 years. In 1917 the British government issued the Balfour Declaration, a public statement announcing support for the establishment of a "national home for the Jewish people" in Palestine. On October 6 of that year US President Woodrow Wilson agreed and consented to the declaration. On June 30, 1922, a joint resolution of both Houses of Congress of the United States unanimously endorsed the "Mandate for Palestine," confirming the irrevocable right of Jews to settle and govern Palestine. In recognizing that Jerusalem, the capital of Israel, is the capital of Israel, President Trump took a page out of Harry Truman's book. Mr. Pope, don't you have something more important to meddle in? Like Net Neutrality?

No shock here: American evangelicals support Israel, but millennials don't understand Israel's place in the biblical narrative.

  1. Good collection, as usual, to alert people of the evil to avoid. As for Papism, abusing Scripture is standard fare for them to keep all the doctrines that discerning people recognize for what they are - lies from Rome.
