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.

Wretched Wednesday - Social Justice Is Not Our Calling

By definition and by their actions the "Christian" Left cannot truly be called Christianity. It's a left leaning political movement hiding behind a thin veil of Christian sounding words. Look at the picture on the left provided to us courtesy of the "christian" left. Now look at Romans 13:
1 Every person is to be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God. 2 Therefore whoever resists authority has opposed the ordinance of God; and they who have opposed will receive condemnation upon themselves. 3 For rulers are not a cause of fear for good behavior, but for evil. Do you want to have no fear of authority? Do what is good and you will have praise from the same (Romans 13:1-3)
Donald Trump could have been sent to save us as Moses was sent to save the Israelites, then again he could have been sent to punish us as the Assyrians were sent to punish fallen Israel. Either way he was sent by God for a purpose. What Christian movement would tell you to ignore what the bible says? None. By definition a Christian movement follows Christ, the son of God who himself believed every word of the bible so not believing what the bible teaches invalidates the title of Christian. The "Christian" Left doesn't ignore the bible so much as it cherry picks verses that suit their mood. Right now their mood is "social justice" much of which, ignoring the political blathering associated with the movement, is good Christian benevolence. Psalm 82:3 tells us:
Vindicate the weak and fatherless; Do justice to the afflicted and destitute. 
In other words, help those who cannot help themselves. James 1:27 tells us:
Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world.
Again widows and orphans - help those who can't help themselves, widows and orphans in Jesus' time were incredibly destitute, with no husband or parents to sustain them there was nothing for widows and orphans other than the welfare system God mandated; gleaning, which we read about in Leviticus 19:9-10. Then there's that part about keeping oneself unstained by the world. When you get involved with politics like the "Christian" Left and their outright dismissal of God's wisdom in Romans 13, you're stained right to the bone, and you utterly forget about what Jesus told us directly to do:
