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 2016-87: Locust Steaks

One of the plagues that has been a scourge of mankind is locusts.  There are stories of swarms of locusts that blot out the sun.  They eat everything that is green or has food value.  I have seen video of them carpeting the ground so you could not walk without squish.  It has been a problem.

Why not apply some thinking outside the box and apply modern technology to the problem.  Let’s make some lemonade, locust flavored or not.  Why don’t we develop ways to harvest these multiplied billions of pests and use the protein for food.  If we can do it with tofu and soybeans we should be able to do it with locust.  We make other common crops to taste like anything we want.  We could make steaks out of locusts and it would be real protein.

In the past we have poisoned them as pests.  In the future we could harvest them as hamburger.

Answers are all around us.  There are many things we don’t think about that are pointed out in the Bible.  Keep in mind that locusts are not only edible, they are kosher.

  1. Americans live in a pretend world where you can only eat what's never been a pet anywhere on earth or anything ugly or anything unusual. They'd starve rather than eat a bug.

    1. Bacon is a possible exception.

      Grace and peace.
