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 2017-039: Headlines: Social Free Enterprise

I keep reading about how everyday Americans are sick and tired of the media lies and bias.  I like hearing that because that is the way I feel but feeling doesn’t make it go away.  If so many people are turned off then why aren’t they turning them off.  How is it that these people have any advertising revenue at all.  Why do people watch their programs?  Why do people buy their publications?  How can they stay on the air and in print if the masses don’t like them.

Could it be that the people complaining are too lazy to cancel subscriptions, turn off their TVs or write a letter?  If all the people complaining would actually put their money where their mouths are then the major media outlets would be forced to shut down.  Can you still get news?  Yes, but you have to work for it.  You need to make sure that you check facts, leave your brain turned on and ask yourself, “What is their bias?”  You need to make sure that you don’t click any links that can generate ad revenue.  You need to find other sights that are more concerned with truth.

We can change America the old fashioned way, by free enterprise.  Movie stars live in million dollar homes because we go to their movies.  Read a book.  Make sure it is one you got at the library if the author is part of the left.

The future waits on your purchases.
