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 2013-66: Discernment Watch: The Ignoring of History

One of the reasons that education is being dumbed down is that the ruling elites know that an educated population is harder to control.  That is why you find math and science stressed but not history.  Math and science are useful in the labs and factories but don’t necessarily develop a philosophy of life that demands independence and liberty.  The Soviet Union was very advanced in the sciences and competed well with us when it was a priority.  The laws of physics don’t change just because politics do.  On the other hand they were famous for rewriting history.

In all my years of teaching I have seen emphasis put on every subject except history.  There is a reason for that.  A people who know their history are more aware of the lies of the elites.  That is not a desirable goal.  How many times have you been in a meeting and had the leaders admonish you to quit being negative by bringing up what did not work in the past?  They don’t want you to remember.  It might mean they would need to try something that would really work.

What is the result of raising taxes?  What are the real life effects of socialism?  What political party was the champion of the anti-slavery movement and which was a big supporter of the KKK?  What happens when you raise the minimum wage?  The questions could go on but no one is asking them because we are now progressive and open minded.  We are also falling apart.

So study your history.  Read about what worked in the past and what has never worked.

And then vote, speak up and take a stand.  Your future depends on it.
