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 2013-98: Cornerstone Considerations: D of I, Truths: Government Recycling

I already looked at the statement that “it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government,...”

But the Founding Fathers didn’t stop there.  If you go down a few more sentences you see this:
“it is their Right, it is their Duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future Security.”
Notice it is not just a “right.”  It is a “duty.”  This is why this document has been banned occasionally from public reading.  This is inflammatory.  This is revolutionary.  This is the kind of phrase that has the Department of Homeland Security labeling anyone who disagrees with the Progressives (Democrats, Liberals, Left, Socialists, Elitests, etc.) as potential terrorists.  It is dangerous to their survival.  It is why the second amendment is so dangerous to them. 

As Americans we believe in the rule of law, unlike the Progressives who believe in the Rule of the Elite Fiat.  Because of that we prefer to “throw off” such government by the ballot box.  It has worked in the past.  Reagan took office without gunshots.  Jimmy Carter turned things the other way with a coup de taut.  The rednecks did not rise up with their “god and guns” when Obama was sworn in.  Historically, we have hunkered down, got out the vote and turned things around.

The Progressives are making the rule of law harder with each judicial appointment.  When you have judges saying the ID cannot be required to vote it makes honest elections very difficult.  When you have the politicians buying votes with EBT cards and Medicare supplements it is almost impossible for the people who work and plan to be heard. 

Liberty is at risk.  If we don’t want to see rebellion leading to the blood of martyrs we had better get serious about securing the voting boxes, paying attention and such simple things as reigning in “entitlements” and “grants” from the party that controls the treasury. 

Change is coming.  The question is what kind of change and how it is achieved.

    1. I will be the one with the big feet. It may be the ultimate blog fest.

      Grace and peace.
