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

Any emphasis on social issues can lead to a departure from the gospel, or more bluntly: political and social activism are not a central part of the mission of the Church. Sorry, but that's exactly how it is. We help the widows and orphans (those who are incapable of helping themselves) as a part of being loving Christians, but that's not our theology. We are called to "make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you", not to become part of the political apparatus. 

God requires those who bear his image to live justly in the world showing appropriate respect to every person and giving to each one what he or she is due. Relativism, socially-constructed standards of truth or morality, and notions of virtue and vice that are constantly in flux cannot result in authentic justice. Because values borrowed from secular culture are currently undermining Scripture in the areas of race and ethnicity, manhood and womanhood, and human sexuality, the Statement on Social Justice was formulated to insure that we are not "taken captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ." (Colossians 2:8)

  1. So the Pope wants countries to commit suicide and worship his idol Mary, all based on his abuse of Scripture? News for Der Spiegel--of course the Pope lies; every single pope has lied and the whole Roman Catholic system is founded and built on lies.

    The church in apostasy has no idea what the persecuted church is going through, nor will they ever.

  2. I sure wish that I knew how to help Roman Catholics see their present state of idolatry and so repent before it is too late.
