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 2013-295: Immortal Quotes: Big Brother Marries the Wicked Step Mother.

I was listening to a podcast from the Young America’s Foundation.  The speaker was Tom Tancredo.  He gave a quote that he said was the secret of the Democratic party.  I always like to get the source so I Googled it and came up with the following:
“A government that robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend on the support of Paul.”
It is attributed to George Bernard Shaw.

I think that sums up much of what we see going on from tax credits to free lunches.  If Americans do not grow up then we are doomed to economic collapse and totalitarian government. 

This means that we all need to stop asking for special benefits whether it be mortgage interest deductions or medicare.  We need to grow up and stand on our own feet or we will be perpetual step children of a wicked, ugly step mother and Big Brother.
