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 2015-17: Green Pieces: Charlie Brown’s Globe Is Warming

Where is Charles Schultz when we need him?

Remember the classic series of cartoons with Lucy repeatedly talking Charlie Brown into kicking the football?  He kept falling for it in spite of the clear evidence that Lucy lied.  And lied.  And lied.  And lied.

Remember that when you read the headlines about 2014 being the hottest year and how the world is getting hotter.  They lie.  And lie.  And lie.  And lie.  And lie.

The best summary I have read is at Powerline.  It is relatively short and has clear charts.  It names names and give details.  If you are having a Charlie Brown Moment and are tempted to believe the Lucy will hold the ball this time, read the article.

And remember:  They lie.  And lie.  And lie.  And lie....

  1. Even if it were true, it wouldn't prove anything. The world has heated and cooled repeatedly, ever since it was created.

    1. One of the overlooked truths of science and statistics is that correlation does not necessarily mean causation.

      Grace and peace.


Comments are welcome. Feel free to agree or disagree but keep it clean, courteous and short. I heard some shorthand on a podcast: TLDR, Too long, didn't read.
