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 2012-189, Links: The Survival Mom

I followed a link from Georges Grouse to The Survival Mom.  The actual link led me to check out another post on the site called “Just for women: 23 Truths about Firearms.”  It was interesting but in the middle was one piece of advice that stood out.  It is a truth that enthusiasts about the second amendment tend to forget.  It was Truth 20.
"Nothing beats not being in the wrong place at the wrong time."
One bit of advice I keep hearing from people who have had the experience:  You don’t want to ever need to use a gun.

Notice that the advice is not “Don’t ever use a gun.”  These people all assume that there will be times when it is necessary to defend and protect yourself and what you hold dear.  Hear that but also hear that these “gun people” are not trigger happy.   They repeatedly remind the rest of us that if you ever have to kill someone it will change your life forever, even if you are totally right.

So take the advice of the Survival Mom.  Avoid situations that might cause problems.

  1. Thanks for sharing that. It needs said more often.

  2. I would have missed it without your link. Keep surfing.

    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.
