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 2015-208: Sunrise or Sunset, part 1 of 3

I noticed that the sun came up again this morning.

How many times have you had “big” things happen and after a few days you did not notice any real difference.  We have moved closer to being a culture that accepts homosexuality as part of the spectrum of normal.  The Supreme Court has jumped on board the brainwashing going on in the media and public schools and given their stamp of approval.  Keep in mind this was just one step.  Will it be the straw that breaks the camels back?  I doubt it, but you never see that straw coming.  And remember, no one ever asks the camel if it wants another straw.

There have been many steps leading to where we are today.  Each step seems like it was designed to incrementally weaken the family.  Keep in mind that the founders of Marxism have always seen the family and religion as the big enemies.  The Communists and socialists want your commitment to be to the state and those two things keep trumping the claims of government.

I am not sure that the people who have forced these steps knew where they were going but one of the tragedies of life is the Law of Unintended Consequences.  Those consequences are dissolving the glue that holds our society together.

So lets look back at a few examples of this destructive trend.

The War on Poverty was supposed to give poor people a chance by giving them a leg up.  I am sure that the Democrats who pushed this thought they were going to do some wonderful things.  Instead it was the first step in destroying the family and beginning the chaos we are moving toward.  It effected the blacks of America first.  It drove men out of the home, put Uncle Sam in his place and perpetuated an underclass full of what used to be called bastards.  The effects are now spreading to all other demographics.

No fault divorce was supposed to protect women.  Instead it has made it easy for irresponsible men to dump them.  It has made it easier for immature adults to walk away from their commitments instead of growing and dealing with life.  The family is again weakened.  The big victims are the children and their mothers.

Affirmative Action becomes the changeling of the Civil Rights Acts that have been passed.  Each time a new Act is passed the actual language makes reverse racism, aka affirmative action, illegal.  The courts ignore this and put out quotas.  They claim there are no quotas but have them anyway.  Thus if you are Asian or a married, white male you are at the bottom of the list for hiring.  It tends to pit people against each other based on superficial characteristics and further erodes society.

All those are in place.

To be continued...
