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 2017-198: Headlines: Teaser Headlines

I urge you to not get your news from the headlines.  The link on The Drudge Report said, “Illinois Becomes North America’s Venezuela”.  That got my attention, which was the goal.

I almost skipped over it because the title was so absurd.  Last I heard the people of Illinois were not facing empty grocery stores, a lack of toilet paper and long bread lines.  There are serious differences between the socialist paradise of Venezuela and the Progressive paradise of Illinois.  My curiosity was arouse by the absurdity.  First I checked the link to make sure it wasn’t from the obvious fake news outlets and, since the source was not on the list, I bit.

The teaser headline was not addressed much in the article.  What it was about was an editorial about the economy and something called cryptocurrency.  What is cryptocurrenccy?  Maybe you have heard of bitcoin.  It was educational because he went into the history of government manipulation of paper money but it was not a declaration about Illinois.

Fake link more than fake news but an informative article.

  1. I see a LOT of that on Facebook. It's basically click-bait.

    1. So I got sucked in. I will live through it and probably bite again.

      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.
