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 2012-330: On Becoming a Squeaky Wheel

I love Christmas vacation, oh, excuse me Winter Break.  It gives me a little more time in the mornings to think, write, post, respond.  This morning I was at a sight called Sharp as a Marble and came across this quote,
“You don’t win elections or issues unless the populace agrees with your stance. You can’t change the way people think by changing their government, you change their government by changing the way they think.”
He then went on to give an example of how the thinking of the public has been changed on gun ownership.  Go ahead and read the entire post.

There is wisdom here.  We need to understand that many people only know what they are told to know.  They learn this by watching MSM or attending concerts put on by musicians who hate American values. 

We need to become the squeaky wheel.  For one the politicians will only respond if we are loud enough.  Also, the general public needs to realize that what they have always thought is not wrong, it is just not “cool.” 

Help people think by speaking out.

Your country and future generations will thank you.
