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.

The Problem With Mr. Jones

By now you've heard of the left wing shut down of Alex Jones, bull horn of the InfoWars website. I am not a fan of Alec Jones, I've seen a total of maybe 10 minutes of his raucous bluster and came away feeling like I lost IQ points.

YouTube, Facebook, Apple podcast, and Spotify all removed Alex Jones' content from their sites stating that he violated "Community Standards". Oddly, Twitter who is the loudest liberal crybaby of social media sites did not shut him down stating that his content there, the same content on YouTube, Facebook, Apple podcast, and Spotify, did not violate their policies. Twitter shuts down conservatives constantly for posting far softer content that the bellicose clamor of Mr. Jones. Very interesting.

Alex Jones is not a conservative like you and I would consider a conservative, he calls himself a "paleo-conservative" a title which I claimed for myself about 1.4 seconds after the left coined the phrase "neo-conservative". Alex is actually a Ron Paul libertarian. If you've never heard of Alex Jones or heard his bellicose tirades, do not feel like you missed anything. Mr. Jones is loud and bold and quite often dead wrong and to be honest I'm thankful for the quiet on YouTube and can get back to things more important than his anger. I am a very strict strict constructionist so I don't have any first amendment concerns here, but I do have some serious freedom of speech concerns (they are two different things), but discussion of that is for a different forum.

When it comes to religion, Mr. Jones calls himself a Christian. He often cites the prophetic books of the bible; Ezekiel, Daniel, Isaiah, Revelations. He claims to be very devoted to his spirituality:
I just want to try to be a pure and virtuous person. I want to try to transcend my flesh and be the true leader that we’re all meant to be… I feel the spirit of the Creator and it embraces me with chills… (source - Alex Jones Tv 1/2: Alex Takes Your Calls on Religion. YouTube took it down)
Alex does not have the background, discipline and training to read that bible properly and in context.  I don't even think he understands how to discern biblical context. He despises organized religion of all forms. He sees organized religions as tools of control, tools of social engineering by governments and corporations to make people buy more McDonalds or be herded into the robot camps for genocide. He also believes that they dupe the public, which is true in some cases. He says they cooperate with governments and tyrannical organizations (Romans 13 anyone?) and they make humanity a giant flock of complacent sheep, which is very true, Jesus does calls us that. Alex says (bellows):
One of the biggest problems in the United States is organized religion. Not just Christians, but Hindus, Muslims, other people. The leaders of their denominations have been funded openly by governments and corporations to preach doctrines of submission to government, submission to tyranny... (source - Alex Jones on organized religion and resistance. YouTube took it down)
Alex has avoided bible collectively going right to the sections that he wants to use to prop up his claims for whatever he's peddling that day. Good people who otherwise I have friends who listen to him and are very loving Christians relayed to me that the Obama administration planed to imprison Christians and bind us in chains, throw us in specially built box cars, and haul us to secret places in the Rocky Mountains where modern guillotines await us. 
"See? Here's a picture of one of the box cars right here..."
"That's an auto rack, it's used to haul automobiles."
"... and here's the chains..." 
"Those are the tie-downs for the cars."
"...here's the entrance to the secret base where they are going to take Christians."
"That's just a railroad tunnel on Tennessee Pass. That rail line has been closed for decades"
"That's what they want you to think!" 
Followers of Alex Jones that I know are so terrified of everything that might occur because Alex Jones is very good at what he does; he works people up in a frenzy of fear. Yeah there's a lot of Bad in the world and yes the bible does not paint a rosy picture of the future of a huge portion of humanity but the bible also tells us over and over not to worry. There's so much more to the bible than doom and gloom. The word of God captured in the bible promises forgiveness and love, a spiritual brotherhood that lasts an eternity yet Alex thinks the most important part of the bible is the eschatology. He doesn't ignore Jesus' command to spread the gospel, he insults it, Alex believes that the Son of God is wrong when he said to a caller of his show;
“You're right, people that beat folks over the head with the Bible—that runs people off; but you look at this mark of the beast, this world government, all this stuff coming down on us—it'll make you get religion!” (Source - The Alex Jones Show, Alex Jones; July 1, 2012)
The Gospel offends people like Alex because it is exclusive, very exclusive - 
All things have been handed over to Me by My Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father; nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and anyone to whom the Son wills to reveal Him (Matthew 11:27)
Alex truly doesn't understand the bible Rather than following Jesus, he is using your commitment to follow Jesus against you. How can he call himself a Christian when he attacks organized religion? The Church is Jesus' greatest creation. He created us, this mob standing as a unit bound by love, to live here behind enemy lines and spread the Gospel, thereby snatching souls one by one out of Satan's clutches 

If listeners of Alex Jones remembered one verse, one single verse uttered by our Lord and Savior, our commander behind enemy lines, Alex Jones  would be out of business more surely than all the plans of Satan's army of liberal atheists combined -
"You will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end. (Matthew 24:6)
Don't weep for Alex and his loss of social media, he actually made money on the deal. Weep for his listeners who think he's a Christian.


  1. Way back around the year 2000, material was released online which suggested that this man was either directly part of Operation Mockingbird, or functioned as if he were. Almost 20 years on, he has continued to split the "conservative movement" and - as you accurately point out in the post - foment fear (and confusion).

    The hunger for truth is so strong that otherwise intelligent people get caught up in the net of this instigator.

    1. Man oh man oh man! When you search "Operation Mockingbird" AND "Alex Jones" in any search engine you end up staring down a rabbit hole of terrifying proportions; CIA, Jesuits, Knights of Malta, Free Masons, the Holy See, and Aliens (both Illegal and Extra Terrestrial). It's amazing how one person can stir up so much heartache on both sides of the equation


    2. Quite a link you've provided!

  2. Thanks for filling us in on who he is. I've heard of the name, and knew he was a conspiracy nut, but other than that I had no idea.

    1. I've bumped into him a few times on the internet and have friends who are dedicated survivalists who quote him to me. I advise folks who have not heard him to stay away. If you're a leftist/socialist/communist (hard to see a difference now) you'll get very upset. If you are conservative he may sound very compelling, even though most of the stuff he spouts is wrong.
