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 2016-178: Dear Race-Baiters

You know who you are.  You are the “human” slugs that go around sowing discord and hatred because you are trying to increase your power.  You are the racists who believe that “Black lives matter” more than any other color.  It would also include anyone who thinks that “_______ lives matter more than any other color (insert your own color). 

You seem to be obsessed with the wrongs done to you because of slavery and the racist attitudes of people from the past.  You ignore that the vast majority of black slaves were enslaved by other blacks and sold by other blacks to start the journey toward today.  You refuse to accept the fact that there were blacks who owned plantations and slaves in America.  You ignore that fact that slavery has put shackles on people of every ethnic group in history.  You suffer from the “don’t confuse me with the facts” syndrome.

I do not accept the guilt you are trying to impose.

But I am willing to make a deal with you.  If you will accept the guilt for killing five random policemen in Dallas and confess to the crime, I will consider confessing to the fact that my ancestors might have owned a slave somewhere in the 6,000 years of recorded history.  You confess, go to jail and possibly face the death penalty in your solidarity with all people of your particular sub-group and I will do the same.  Your action would result in execution.  My “guilt” would involve a few dollars reparations. 

Do we have a deal?

  1. When you have a mindset that segregates yourself from society, there really isn't much help.

    1. I sometimes wonder at what age people's minds get so oriented.

      Grace and peace.
