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 2013-44: Headline: Shocked at Decline in GDP?

This morning when I went on line I checked the headlines on the Drudge Report.  The banner talked about a shocking report that the Gross Domestic Product had declined.  It did not say “slowed in growth,” it said “decline.”  My first reaction was, “Well, duh!”  I wondered who in the world could be surprised at this in light of the current things happening in Washington, D.C.  So I jumped over and found out. 

Another “Duh!”  It was the MSM.  The link took me to an article at CNBC.   If you bother reading it you will see that although they admit it went down, they have all kinds of reasons to explain how it isn’t really a big deal.

It is a big deal and it will get bigger.

The government needs to stop spending on things that are not mandated in the Constitution.  Remember that old fashioned document?

  1. They'll never learn, even AFTER it's far too late. Maybe when they feel the flames licking around their feet.....but there I go - judging again!

    1. At this point I would not call it judging, just calling them as we see them.

      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.
