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.

2019 - It's Nearly Over

It's been a very tough year, and this month was merely a reflection of the other eleven months. Yesterday morning I had some good news to share with my church family here at the First Berean Congregational Church, but I didn't read it, I'll get it next week. I didn't want to give 2019 the honor of hearing such a blessed event. 

When I got the False Teacher Of The Year post out I simply felt exhausted, tired of the whole thing, then I started to put together a Random Bits article and it was all just evil. So I withdrew, no more news, no TV (other than Paw Patrol with the grandchildren). However this morning I turned on the radio to hear the evils of Gnosticism, Legalism, and Dualism being lectured on the flagship of the Mormon church - The Glenn Beck program. These are foundation stones of that faith - so the truth was coming out but it's all so upside down.

So let's just let 2019 slink into the history books as we part with it with the first and best benediction:
24 The Lord bless you, and keep you; 25 The Lord make His face shine on you, And be gracious to you; 26 The Lord lift up His countenance on you, And give you peace.(Numbers 6:24-26)
See you again in 2020!

False Teacher Of The Year 2019

It's that time of the year when we look back on the months that have passed and reflect on what happened in our world. We make lists of what happened in the past year, including list after list of the celebrities who had died during the year. As for me, I've had better years - my spinal issues have caused severe pain in my hips, my pulmonary hypertension pressures in my heart have gone up, and after 20 years of working in the cable industry I was let go. But it hasn't been all bad, God allowed me to be born in the greatest nation on earth where doctors are able to diagnose and treat my myriad of medical issues, where that evil Big Pharma can provide me with treatment, and after 20 years of slaving away in the cable industry I was given my freedom. But, as hard as you may argue the opposite, it's not all about me. We are here to stand in shock as false teachers gnaw away at the visible church, the body of Christ here on earth, and to recognize the efforts of the lead gnawers. (I think that's a word)

False teachers are everywhere you look, through their messages of disunity and mammon worship it's clear that Satan is on the march. From Sheep Poaching church planters to howling Poverty Pimps, Christianity is under attack from within. These  malignant parasites are clearly spiritual cancer tumors feeding off the body of Christ in an effort to destroy the Church founded on the cornerstone of Christ and built by Jesus Christ Himself. 

I wish I could list the top 10 churches for 2019, but a good church doesn't make headlines. In the near future when we Christians fall under blanket persecution by the government and self serving Satan run atheistic special interest groups, good churchs will make headlines, but until then all we hear from the good churches is the Word of God, and that's all right by me. On the other side of the spectrum, the agents of Satan have been having a banner year. From private jets to $600 t-shirts the false teachers are wallowing in this world. And it's not just A private jet, Jesse Duplantis already has three jets, he wants a fourth, a $54,000,000 Dassault Falcon 7X.

A Simple Prayer Request

I haven't been around much because: life. My stepdaughter and her children, my grand babies, and both a blessing and a lesson on patience and humility and their living with us for the past few months has been a household calamity and a joy that lifted my heart from the other pains of this world.

At 62 I find myself disabled and unemployed, I'm not whining, God has a plan and is under no compulsion to share the details with me. I applied with the Social Security Administration for disability and I was approved in just a few weeks. And that's why I ask to be included in your prayers. I've applied with the Veterans Administration for disability benefits, I believe my petition with them is true and I am only asking for their honest consideration. Your prayers can only help. Thank you.
