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 2015-71: Coming to a City Near You

Another day, another massacre.

You may not hear about this on the Daily Blab.  I don’t watch TV news so I don’t know.  Check out the British Independent.  It seems that there has been another suicide bombing, actually a double feature, in Yemen.  It seems that four Sunni Muslims gave special performances in two Shia mosques.  The death toll is uncertain but the numbers start at 120.

In case you are geographically challenged, you know, you went to an American public school, Yemen is far from here.  It is just south of Saudi Arabia, if you know where that is.  You don’t need to be afraid of these particular players.  Yemen is a country that you may have heard about recently where the elected leader, an American ally, stepped down to prevent bloodshed.  It would seem that our president left him hanging out to dry and he had no choice. 

It doesn’t seem to have stopped the bloodshed.

This was the Religion of Peace demonstrating what it means by peace.  At least 120 infidels have come to experience peace.  They are infidels because they did not agree with the bombers.  Of course, they would have called the bombers infidels.  It gets very confusing but rest assured that peace prevails.  Here is how the article sums it up.
“Many of the worshippers (sic) in the mosques were supporters of the Shia Houthi fighters who control the capital, and responsibility for the carnage was claimed by Isis which regards all Shia as heretics...”
The silver lining to this cloud of tragedy is that as long as the different sects of Islam are fighting each other they will be less able to kill everyone else that disagrees with them.  Historically they tend to hate each other even more than the Christians, Jews and Hindus that they also like to kill or subjugate. 

That may sound harsh but it is accurate.

Have a nice day.

  1. Perhaps someday they'll all kill each other off and the world will at least be more peaceful than it has been for a few hundred years.

    1. Don't forget that the Progressives see conservatives and Christians about the same way Islam views America.

      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.
