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 2017-064: Boycotting, One Decision at a Time

I have read several places about how Ivanka’s products have moved to the top of Amazon since being ostracized by liberal drone stores.  I saw how Trump’s wine sold out after the left called for a boycott.  Consumers have power if they have the integrity to exercise it. 

Along those lines I have noticed that the Girl Scouts are selling cookies in front of every store I go into.  At the same time I have seen it mentioned that cookie sales are down.  It could be.  I stopped even considering buying Girl Scout cookies years ago when they decided to become supportive of the Lesbian agenda.  Sorry, but if I can I will not patronize places that take those kind of positions.  I don’t yell and scream at the innocent children selling cookies.  I don’t make a scene.  I smile and say, “No thank you.”  I also don’t shop at Target unless I must, which doesn’t happen often.  Since they banned the Salvation Army at Christmas, they have been off my list, or on my list, depending on how you look at it.

Americans with traditional values do not need a nationally organized boycott to let our power be felt.  A million citizens shopping at Walmart or the corner store instead of Target makes a difference, even if it is not admitted.  One person taking a stand on principle makes a difference, even if no one notices.

If Christians would stop going out to eat and shopping on Sunday there would be a lot of people who could not use work as an excuse to miss church.  I have already talked about using links on the internet.

Each decision makes a difference.  Each person makes a difference.  Every time.

    1. I am not sure if I should respond with legalist, literalist or just accuse you of being someone who has read his Bible.

      In my defense you will notice that I did not use the term "Sabbath".

      Grace and peace.

  2. I didn't know the Girl Scouts support the lesbian agenda. I stopped buying the cookies after being a GS leader some 20 years ago when I found out only a veeerrry small percentage of the proceeds actually go to the troop/girls. To me it really seemed like the girls were being used horribly.

    1. That is another issue that we tend to be too lazy to examine.

      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.
