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 like football, I'm not crazy about football, but I do enjoy a game if one of my two teams is playing. I am originally from the Buffalo NY area, which means that I have two teams to root for:
    1. The Buffalo Bills
    2. Any team playing against the Patriots
Which means going in to Super Bowl LII I should have been an Eagles fan, had I bothered to watch the game. But like an increasing number of people I didn't care. Being a veteran and friend of many a disabled veteran I found myself not caring about multi millionaires and their pet peeves.  

I could go on and on but in the end it's not about freedom of speech, it's about respect. If you want to say it's about freedom of speech, then this is me being free with speech by saying you're wrong, it's about respect. There are things bigger than their issues and maybe the NFL would be better place if everyone with a million dollar paycheck had emulated JJ Watt, and instead of sitting down they should have stood up and made a difference. That being said I now wish I had paid more attention to the Eagles. After reading this article and this article and this article I found reason to enjoy the Eagles, maybe I'll watch one of their games next year... if they play the Bills (or the patriots)

A Kern County Superior Court judge rules that forcing a Christian baker to decorate a wedding cake for a homosexual couple is a violation of that bakers right to free speech

Polyamory and polygamy – the next big social change? 

Yet another reason is why the secular world looks down on Christianity (and it's not just the faux-Christians listed in the article)

Saying "God loves you" is now considered an act of terror in the United Kingdom

POTUS speaking at the National Prayer Breakfast, and unlike the last POTUS he didn't intentionally insult Christians

Is it Satan who is the true enemy, or is it us?

We are going to have to build a Northern Border Wall

Ok, this video is advertised as Dr. Michael Brown Another Spiritual Snake Oil Pitchman for Sid Roth, but in reality it should be titled 2017 False Teacher Of The Year trying for a repeat in 2018!

Murder, assault, and arson numbering among almost 100 attacks which targeted Christians in 2017 - where was this at; Iran? Egypt? India? Nope, it was Germany. And in France anti-Christian acts accounting for 90 per cent of attacks on religious buildings and institutions

Worst sermon ever??? You decide

Worst filibuster ever??? You decide
(as you read, keep in mind that St. Pelosi is the most rabid pro-abortion member of the house)

What do Rob Bell and Jen Hatmaker have in common? They're both trying to lead you away from the God of truth. Stan wrote an article on this also. I'm guessing that the Holy Spirit wants the word out on this.

And while we are speaking of heretics, there's that heretic Rob Bell again

The I Already Knew That Dept: Meditation does NOT make you a better person

A mob of 1,000 pagans carrying the corpse of a Christian woman attacked a Christian church in India and set the church on fire

A Muslim business tried to take over a Christian school in the Sudan. Sudanese officials fined the Christian pastors for trying to prevent the takeover

1 Person dead, 3 more wounded in church service stabbing attack in a Corpus Christi TX home

I would love to worship with these brave, wonderful Christians

This week I wrote a blog entry about Swarthmore College's new class

Mikey Weinstein is to Christian soldiers as what Harvey Weinstein is to young actresses yeah, I said it

China's crackdown on Christians continues, this time they're using the left wing's favorite excuse that was all the rage in the Clinton administration: "Protecting" the children

The Roman Catholic Church's Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences think's that China's assault on Christianity is just peachy.

Here are the most important differences between complementarianism and egalitarianism. It's got to be true, I read it on the internet


  1. We all knew polygyny would be next, so polyamory isn't a surprise. But for all polygynous cultures, the benefit is always for the men and the women suffer in many, many ways; all one has to do is read the many testimonies from wives in the LDS and FLDS.

    I'm not ready to call that home meeting in Texas a "church." I've looked over the FB page and they seem to be a charismatic cult. I wonder if that is what led to the killing.

    1. It's all about 'me'. One participant declared, 'There are times when monogamy is right for me and other times when poly is right for me.'

      That about says it all

  2. Nice post! Its really interesting. The ideas were good and helpful to us.
