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 2017-235: Not My Decision

Should Jeff Sessions resign?  That is totally up to him and the president.  There are many functions of the Attorney General that require a man with his qualities:  Integrity, solid values and a strong work ethic.  It has been a long time since the office has seen that. 

His problem, if it is a problem, is those qualities.  He is a good man, an honorable man.  So were both George Bush’s but they did not have the killer instinct that seems to be necessary in the top slot.  When Sessions recused himself he was doing the honorable thing.  He was being honest as he saw it.  The problem is that the Democrats, Progressives and other flavors of liberals only know how to go for the jugular and win.  The reasons Republicans keep winning elections and then losing the cultural battle is they play by the rules and expect others to do so also. 

They don’t.

They ignore the rules for themselves but hold us accountable.  They blame us for all the garbage in their own lives.  Thus we have Hillary talking about the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy when it was really a left wing conspiracy with her at the core.  We have MSM dithering about all the anger and inciting of violence on talk radio when they are the ones who are angry and inciting.  The classic is accusing Trump of collusion, whatever that is, when we have Obama on tape telling the Russians he will be able to give them much more after he is reelected.

In psychology it is called projection.  It is the ability to take your own qualities and lay them on the other person.  Thus I knew that if someone at school yelled “racist” it was because they were full of racial prejudice.  If they called you a “hater” it was because they were full of hate.  Just listen to the voices of the media and the elites.

Should Sessions resign?  Only if he becomes a future problem for moving the country forward.  He has so much to offer I hope that they find a way to allow him to serve.  Ultimately it is between Donald Trump and Jeff Sessions.

  1. I agree. I just wish Trump would either fire him or shut up.

    1. You really believe in miracles.

      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.
