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 2015-105: Two Ignored Problems in Education

Students are liars.  Teachers are enablers.

We live in a culture that embraces and supports liars.  Whether it is the foolishness of Al Gore about global warming, the declaration of Bill Clinton about the meaning of “is”, or the blatant audacity of the current president repeatedly saying “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor”, the children of today are surrounded by leaders who believe that any lie is good as long as it benefits them.  Kids today will lie about anything, even if they know they won’t get away with it.  This is not cynicism, this is realism.

Enabling this behavior are the teachers.  They are true believers.  They have been educated with the humanist belief that the nature of human beings is good and only corrupted by society.  It doesn’t matter what a child does, the adults in charge of their education make excuses for them.  You will find all kinds of articles about the problems of education.  I have written, am writing and will continue to write about it.  Rarely will you find anything pointing at the children being part of the problem. 

Educators are on the level of a Muslim mother that straps a suicide vest on her child and sends her off to blow up some dirty, stinking Jews.  They believe that they are on the side of the angels.  The problem is most teachers don’t believe in angels.

So if you don’t have a seat belt to buckle, go out and get one.  It is going to be a rough ride when this generation gets in control of society.

  1. I am blessed to have grandchildren who are being raised with the concept of consequences for actions, including lies. I cling to that shred of hope.

    1. Ultimately that is all we can really do. When I look into the eyes of children that don't have parents that care I need to keep reminding myself I cannot undo what took thirteen years to get to me.

      Grace and peace.

    1. But wait until you are in the nursing home and they tell their supervisor that they changed your bed pan and don't explain they mean two days ago.

      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.
