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 2015-226: Headlines: Nature Kills Lions

It was enough to break the heart of any environmentalist.  Ten endangered Asiatic lions were drowned in a flood in India.  That is the headline and I am sticking to it.  There are only 523 left.  What is noticeable is that there were also 81 confirmed human deaths.  That is, however, in the third paragraph of The Independent article and of little significance.  There is no listing of how many are still alive. 

The heart breaking aspect for the environmentalists is not that so many lions died but that they can’t find a way to blame it on humans.  Nature did it.  Monsoons are not new occurrences.  Floods are not unusual in monsoon country.  Lots of other animals died. 

I didn’t find any reference to global warming.

  1. You know what's also the headline; the entire damn blogpost.

    1. At least that made you read it.

      O, well. The dangers of posting while on the road.

      I will see if I can correct it.

      Grace and peace.

  2. Cows don't count for anything either; they have to be WILD animals to matter.


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.
