Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

This blog will be written from an orthodox Christian point of view. There may be some topic that is out of bounds, but at present I don't know what it will be. Politics is a part of life. Theology and philosophy are disciplines that we all participate in even if we don't think so. The Bible has a lot to say about economics. How about self defense? Is war ethical? Think of all the things that someone tells you we should not touch and let's give it a try. Everything that is a part of life should be an expression of worship.

Keep it courteous and be kind to those less blessed than you, but by all means don't worry about agreeing. We learn more when we get backed into a corner.

Opus 2011-66, News: It’s a War, Not a Battle

Lets get our images right.  We are not trying to win a battle.  We are in a war for the future of our country.  It must be both strategic and tactical.  We will never turn things around overnight.  I am a right wing, red-necked-white-collared, narrow-minded, Bible believing, global warming denying, conservative.  There are times when I question whether Ronald Reagan was a real conservative.  What that means is I am not stupid.  I don’t get happy when someone throws me a bone.  I want the whole enchilada so I can put some aside for my children and grandchildren.  We had a great election.  Lets have some more.  At Thanksgiving I always expect seconds and left overs.

So how is the new congress doing?  I am willing to say they are making progress.  If we want it done right we need to take the time to get it right.  That means understanding some things.  First, only the House has any ability to respond to conservatives now.  The Founders set up our system so that no one branch or section of a branch can control the process.  The shows wisdom.  That makes us work with people we don’t agree with and find ways to make it work for everyone.  So lets give them time to get it right.  Oh, and hold their feet to the fire at the same time.

What are they doing right? 

Reading the Constitution
Voted to end Obamacare
Voted to defunding Planned Parenthood
Voted to muzzle the EPA on “greenhouse gases”

Most of it is window dressing because of the process involving the senate and the presidential veto but at this point it is laying the groundwork.  This is politics but that is not necessarily a dirty word.  For years the left has been moving slowly and understanding that half a loaf is better than none.  We can learn from them.  Keep up the pressure.  The American people may be ignorant and not paying attention but give it time and keep lighting candles.

Keep in mind that the media and the Rino squishes will not pass on all the news.  Good things may happen that we don’t hear about.  What we do hear will probably be twisted to the point of total deception.  No one said it would be easy, but it is possible.  Search the net.  Read between the lines.  Question and doubt.  Keep up the pressure.  Didn’t someone say, “Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty”?  Be the loyal opposition until we see the Republic on its way back to health.
