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 2016-251: Discernment Watch: Rule of Law

The Rule of Law is one of the cherished principles of American liberty.  Unfortunately it does not always work as advertised.

All that is necessary for the Rule of Law to fail is to have people in positions of power who use the rules to manipulate those who are trying to follow them.  Thus you can use the courts to wear down any opposition like Microsoft did to the companies it stole intellectual property from.  Another example would be the way in which the government uses the tax payer’s money to force the tax payer into court to get justice which should have never been questioned in the first place.

An obvious example currently is the way in which Hillary Clinton has been avoiding jail time simply because she is one of the elite.  She joins a long line of political and entertainment personalities who have spit on the law and walked away whistling. 

Another almost daily event is judges making rulings that defy the law, common sense and even average intelligence.  Recently the California Supreme Court made refused to review a lower court that gave the green light to reverse racial discrimination, i.e. Affirmative Action. 

It almost make you wonder if we can avoid violence in the future.  How long will the masses continue to ignore the special treatment of the chosen classes?  Probably as long as the bread and circuses hold out.  I don’t know which way to hope.

  1. I dunno. The elite are not any attempt any more to hide their total disdain for the laws that seemingly only apply to the rest of us. Put me in the "basket of deplorables" that are pretty sick of it.

    1. I think of how certain terms were originally meant as insults and became badges of honor. "Christian" comes to mind from church history. I have worn the labels of "narrow minded" and "Bible thumper" with pride. I have no problem with being one of the deplorables when it is defined by the evil. I am not sure that the masses care enough to pull the plug on these self appointed messiahs.

      Grace and peace.


Comments are welcome. Feel free to agree or disagree but keep it clean, courteous and short. I heard some shorthand on a podcast: TLDR, Too long, didn't read.
