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 2014-199: Headlines: Promises to Keep

Who said that presidents never keep their promises.  You may not get to keep your doctor but you will get the promised increase in utility bills.  According to the blog, Hot Air,  The campaigning Barak Obama said in an interview with the San Fransico Chronicle,
“Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.”
Interestingly enough, the liberal Chronicle has removed this but if you Google it you can find many references and a You Tube clip also.

The president’s promise to raise utility rates is being fulfilled according to CNSNews.  Of course there are many factors in the cost of energy but if you go to the end of the article you will see that the average electricity generated per person is now lower in 2007.

Doesn’t Economics 101 teach something about supply and demand?
