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 2012-309, Cornerstone Considerations: D of I, Truths: Inalienable or Unalienable?

We hear a lot of talk about our rights.  The core rights are not to be taken away.  The Declaration of Independence says people in general and Americans in particular are
“endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights,...”
If you are detail oriented you will notice a possible spelling problem.  Whether you start the word with “in” or “un” it means the same.  One is a Latin prefix, the other English.  Both words make it clear that certain rights are permanent.

The key concept is that the government does not have the right to take away what were considered the basic rights of human beings.  The list is not long but it is important. 

We believe, our Founders believed, in limited government.  The current leaders in our political wars need to be reminded of that.
