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 2013-22: Discernment Watch: The Frozen Frog

In reading the comments of “the guru” on Gorges Grouse I was reminded of the process of slowly heating a frog until the boiling water cooks him.  The reference was to the way in which the elites in government slowly take away our freedom until we are cooked.  A good reminder, go read it if you are not familiar with the illustration.  Heed it.

It reminded me that I learned the opposite is also true.  I was listening to a pod-cast from Reasons to Believe called “I Didn’t Know That!”  On this pod-cast they discuss science and faith.  One I listened to recently had the host, a physicist, a biologist and a philosopher in the discussion.  It is a great way to expand your faith in the God of the Bible.

They were discussing natural forms of anti-freeze that occur all around us.  It seems that the process that keeps our car radiators from turning to ice is found in many life forms from the bacteria level to giant trees.  I had never thought about it that way. 

In relation to frogs they were discussing how amphibians hibernate through the winter.  They have some kind of protein that allows the tissue to actually freeze without rupturing and killing the animal.  So it seems that in addition to boiling a frog, you can freeze it to keep it out of action.

The elites don’t want to ruin your day, they want to ruin your life.  They get their jollies by restricting your liberty.  Why else would they really care if your dishwashing liquid had enough phosphorus to get your dishes clean?  Why else would they care about the million and one things they regulate? 

So wake up America.  We may be boiled.  We may be frozen.  Either way we become nothing but frogs legs on the plate of an elitest.  I don’t want to have a legacy, “He tasted just like chicken.”

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.
