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 2013-240: Discernment Watch: Zimmerman Did Not Kill Martin, part 1 of 2

Oh, he pulled the trigger.  He shot the gun.  That is not in question. 

But he is not really the one who caused the death.

The left wing media and race baiters are trying to make Martin a victim.  He was, but not the victim they want to describe.  He was not a victim of Zimmerman.  He was not a victim of profiling.  He was not a victim of racism.  Yet he was a victim.

He was a victim of all the adults in his life that had allowed him to think he could do anything he wanted and there would be no consequence.  I know this because, although I was not in the court room and have a limited knowledge of the case, I see the same actions and experiences that I observe on a regular basis.  I know because I see the destruction going on all the time in our public schools.  I know because I have sat in countless meetings with parents.  I know because I have watched television and read the magazines that mold our culture.  I know because I have taken psychology and sociology classes.  I know because I realize that many of the young men I work with in middle school will someday be found dead in a gutter because they never learned that actions have consequences.

Not only has no one taught that lesson, they have constantly taught the opposite.  In spite of the emphasis on the scientific method we ignore the process of cause and effect.  We ignore the long therm results and the fact that the king has no clothes.

This is not about the guilt of either of the main players.  I am not really commenting on Zimmerman or Martin.  This is about those who have been, and still are, behind the scenes continuing to do their work of ruining lives.

To be continued...
