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 2017-256: Headlines: War, but Not with Korea

One of the reasons that Donald Trump resonates with so many Americans is because he gets it.  He understands what is happening.  To quote one of his advisors as quoted in the Washington Times,
“‘This is a war,’ said Bruce Levell, a member of the Trump re-election campaign’s advisory board.”
He understands that we are in a cultural war.  The Rinos don’t get it.  Actually they do get it and they are on the other side.

A revealing statement was made later in the article.
“Mr. Trump has some distance to go to build the type of popular support President Clinton had when he was impeached by the House but not removed from office in a trial by the Republican-majority Senate. His acquittal in 1999 was all the more spectacular given the bitter opposition to his presidency from the Republican Party.”
I remember those days.  There was no question that Bill Clinton was guilty of perjury.  That was the issue, not his antics with Monica.  In spite of that the Republican controlled Senate could not impeach.  Why?  The same reason that President Trump finds that the Senate repeatedly ties his hands and works against his agenda.  There are too many Republicans that would prefer to be on the other side of the aisle.

Yes, we are at war.  It is a cultural war.  It is a political war.  The Democrats, the Rinos and the Progressives are on one side.  A minority of Republicans, President Trump and a majority of Americans are on the other.

Remember, vote the suckers out.
