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 2015-246: Headlines: A Wake Up Call?

If you insist on remaining asleep, nothing will wake you up.  If you are keeping an open mind it probably means nothing will penetrate.  If you are aware there is a problem, here is another step in the direction of destroying all pretense of moral fiber in our culture.

This comes from England and involves European Convention on Human rights.  The article is found in The Independent.  It involves an English Lord who is accused of “child sex abuse” and his lawyer is claiming that making him appear in court would “be a breach of his human rights”.  I have no idea how strong the evidence is or whether he is innocent or not.  He is not the issue.  The issue is that a European lawyer is trying to use European law to justify molesting children.

There are a lot of nuances and special circumstances so you might be inclined to claim this is straining at gnats and swallowing camels.  I see you point.  See mine.  The Supreme Court of the United States has been taking into consideration international law in deciding cases.  In my opinion that is treason, but put that aside for today.  What is more important is to understand that we live in a system of Common Law in which decisions are based on precedent from other court cases.  What lawyers look at is not what the law says but what the judges say about the law.  Thus, when a court in England starts carving out new ground in regard to what most would consider sexual perversion we need to sit up and take notice.

What happens in England does not stay in England.

Homosexual marriage, euthanasia, prostitution, legalizing drugs, unisex bathrooms, metrosexual military.  The list goes on.  The enemies of traditional and Biblical values keep pushing.

Will it never stop?  No.

Elections matter.
