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 2012-98, New Terms: Idiot, Imbecile, Moron

Have you ever called anyone an idiot?  We have a lot of labels for people who seem to lack a direct connection to the mental internet.  They seem to be running on wireless during a power outage.  You know the type.  I thought maybe you should know what accusation you are actually making.

Idiots are the lowest level.  They have an I.Q. of 0-25.  Next you have imbeciles at 26-50 and morons at 51-70.  I think that above 70 is considered in the normal range. 

Some words are totally relative.  Retarded simply means slow or turned backward.  Ignorant does not mean stupid, it means uninformed.  Space cadet can mean anything you want it to mean.

Currently I don’t know of any commonly accepted understanding for the words, liberal, administrator, lawyer, blogger, or politician.  Remember that Wikipedia can be edited by the contributors.

  1. I unkindly called a buckeye tail-gaiter an idiot today when she tried passing on the berm on my side of the road as I dodged a pot-hole. After reading your post, I realize that I should be ashamed of myself. I'm sure that she's at least an imbecile or she wouldn't have passed her drivers test!

  2. You must also factor in the level of the person administering the test. I was informed recently by students that one of their teachers considered 20% as passing. And it was the science teacher. We call this rigor.

    Grace and peace.


Comments are welcome. Feel free to agree or disagree but keep it clean, courteous and short. I heard some shorthand on a podcast: TLDR, Too long, didn't read.
