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 2017-247: The Rosy Glow

In reading an editorial in the Washington Times about John McCain’s betrayal I had a moment of clarity.  He doesn’t care.

He doesn’t care what the Washington Times thinks.  He doesn’t care what the conservatives think.  He doesn’t care what America thinks.  He is basking in that mental condition that elitists have which produces a rosy glow of power.  The elitists of the country want to be in control, not because they have a glorious dream for the future of the country, but because they like to run and ruin other people’s lives.  Think of administrators you have worked for.  Think of the clerk behind the desk at city hall or the DMV.  Think of the cop who pulled you over.  They are all little John McCains and you give them a rush.

Why do the elites hate liberty for the masses?  Because they like to see the sheep jump.  They like to see their victims squirm.  It reminds them that they are better than we are.

I doubt if even John McCain has another reelection campaign in him but there will be others seeking that kind of power.  We only have one power:  Vote the suckers out.

  1. You would think that term-limits would be a solution, but nope. As opposed to betrayal in his sixth in final term, term limits would've just made him just done it earlier.

    1. The gossip is that he is grooming his daughter to take over his seat. Some of her sound bites sound good but when you listen to her long enough she seems like a chip off the old block.

      I have mixed feelings on term limits. I like the idea but why can't the voters just stop voting for these guys. It is similar to the way in which every one admits education is in trouble but their school is fine.

      Grace and peace.

  2. Sometimes I think the second coming will be the only solution.

    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.
