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 2012-252, Coming to a Court of Jail Near You

Today was confession day.  We learned that teachers are bullies too.  Evidently in our “Advisory” discussion of bullying some students shared how teachers bullied them.  This should come as no surprise since just about anything that makes a person feel uncomfortable is considered bullying.  It doesn’t matter if it is imagine or real.  It doesn’t matter if it is a mental problem of the one claiming to be bullied or social deviation on the so-called bully.  To use a favorite phrase of our self-esteem culture, “If you can dream it, you can be it.”

This is where the lack of depth in the thinking of teachers becomes dangerous.  They don’t seem to understand where this is leading and what the goal is.  This is not about bullying, this is about mind control and 1984.  Once we let this camel get its nose under the tent it can only end up in court, jail or the unemployment line.  Or all three. 

Lazy parents, despotic administrators, ambitious lawyers and unethical politicians are just lined up to take people to court.  They want to cut off anything that dares to rise above the mediocre masses.  Remember that some people were happy in the Soviet Union.  Some people were happy in 1984.  Some people are happy in the People’s Republik of Kalifornia.  Most of the happy are mind numbed robots who have no controversial opinions and are happy with bread and circuses.  The picture of the man who mad the video critical of Mohammed being led off by federal agents should send a chill up your spine.

It is coming to a school, or home, near you.

November is coming but it is only the next chapter in the battle.

  1. Personally, I think it's a lost cause. However, we can probably raise enough fuss to prolong the transition a bit.

  2. My pessimism is conditional. If God's people will ever open themselves to revival we can have another good century until it is needed again. I look to the Wesley revival in England and the Great Awakening in the American colonies.

    It can happen. Will it? The jury is still out but it isn't looking good. The Great American Experiment may be coming to an end.

    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.
