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 2015-388: Self-Policing

One of the concerns everyone seems to have over the “agreement” with Iran is that the Iranians will be expected to police themselves.  We see this as absolutely absurd but try to look at it from the politicians’ point of view.  Who polices our government?  What outside force has ever been able to get into the inner workings of the Obama administration?  They send the Justice Department to investigate what Hillary Clinton did in the State Department.  Really?  That has always seemed absurd to me.  Even when they appoint a special prosecutor, the appointment is in their hands, not ours.

So what is strange about that arrangement again?  If we put up with it in our government why should we be surprised when they offer it to the mullahs.
