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 2017-030: Headlines: Leaky Weeks

On the Powerline Blog the subject was the leaked tapes of the supposedly secret meeting of the GOP last week.  What struck me was that this person infiltrated a supposedly secure location with false ID.  She passed all the hurdles that were put up to keep things secure.  The political aspect is business as usual.  There is no integrity when it comes to gathering news.  We should be used to that by now. 

What about the security angle?  If it is this easy to infiltrate a meeting with very exclusive membership what does it say about national security.  This woman had the credentials.  She went through all the hoops.  She still got in and it never occurred to anyone when she was “escorted” out that she might have recording she was not supposed to have?

What if she had been a terrorists instead of a reporter?

  1. That shows how far we've moved from actual security in this country. I seriously doubt if any such thing would have happened during WW II, but I could be wrong.

    1. Was that the war where we knew who the enemy was and they were from another country?

      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.
