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 2017-156: Connecting the Dots

Two days ago I wrote about the article in the New York Times about the CIA operatives being rolled up by the Chinese government.  Let’s be honest.  What that means is a group of people spying for the United States were caught, interrogated and probably executed.  That is serious business that is a part of the interaction of nations.  I do not fault the Chinese for protecting their interests.  I do fault the Times for their partisan hack reporting. 

I also want to connect some dots for you that I don’t believe the Times will get to.  I could be wrong but I am not going to pay them to find out.  I pointed out that Hillary Clinton was secretary of state while this was happening.  What did not occur to me until this morning that it was also the time when she was compromising the security of the United States by running an illegal server for her internet connections.  I think I have read that the Russians had hacked her.  Based on the timing of these deaths I think we can assume that the Chinese were also not asleep to the opportunity.

Does my timing work?  If it does, I would say it is pretty obvious that these agents of the American government were caught and punished because Hillary broke the law.  To me this is serious stuff, but how did Hillary put it, “What difference does all that make now?”

And they wet their pants because Trump does his job and talks to the Russian ambassador.  These people are insufferable.

  1. The Clintons have an awful lot of blood on their hands. I would not want to be one of them when I face God.

    1. I would not want to be one of them now but that doesn't explain how they can live with themselves.

      Grace and peace.
