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 2016-229: Discernment Watch: The Hope(less) of the Future

I think that youth should be labeled as a handicap status.  I am so tired of younger people acting like I can’t do things because I don’t like new things.  What a farce that is.   In reality they don’t have enough experience to know what is new and what is just recycled failures.  When you have been down the sidewalk a few times you begin to realize that “new and improved” often means “since you are too young to remember what we tried to pull ten years ago, we will try again”.

Young people are severely handicapped by their lack of experience and surplus of ignorance.  Their lack of real education has doubled down on that to make them easy victims.  They can be manipulated and controlled.  Think of the masses of millennials who idolized Bernie Sanders and his failed Communist dreams.  Most of the children I know think that all the government needs to do is print more money.  They can’t understand why we would all starve to death if food was made free.  They need to Google “Venezuela” and do a little reading.

Unfortunately they are too busy trying to master Pokemon Go.  Meanwhile someone is stealing their liberty and limiting their future.  Or is it the other way around?
