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 2013-343: Headlines: The Problem Is not Sebelius

As I walked through the bedroom Sunday morning my wife had the news on.  The topic of discussion was the snafu of the Obamcare website.  A guest talking head was saying something and underneath her face was an ID line and the question “Should Sebelius resign?”

The simple answer is, “No.” 

The problem we should be concerned about is not Sebelius.  The problem is not a dysfunctional website.  These are just symptoms.  If we focus too much on these things we will forget the real problem.  Remove Sebelius and you still have socialized medicine.  Fix the website and you still have socialized medicine.  Give everyone free health care and make them happy.  You will still have socialized medicine.

When a magician wants to fool you on the right side he will distract you on the left.  When a pickpocket wants to take your wallet he will get you worried about your head.  When a socialist wants to take away your freedom and substitute government mandates they get you mad at a figurehead. 

Sebelius is just a disposable, interchangeable stooge for the Obama-Reid-Polosi power grab.  Remove her and they will get someone else with a different hairdo and a different wardrobe but with the same masters. 

Socialism believes that a small elite of experts can make your decisions for you.  It believes your life needs to be controlled and managed by them.  It is for your own good.  Who knows better what you need in life but Ivy League graduates. 

Don’t lose your focus for a bit of slight of hand.  While we are yelling about a web site our health infrastructure is being dismantled and destroyed.

    1. I have read this angle at least one place so I am not alone but too many people are not focused on the big issue.

      Grace and peace.
