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 2017-285: Headlines: Market Forces at Work

Remember the headlines about President Obama getting the award for gun salesman of the year?  We could give the anarchists of the left the same title for Confederate flags.  This point is made in the headline of an editorial by Cheryl K. Chumley in the Washington Times.  Evidently sales of Confederate flags are soaring.

The parallels with guns, also under the assault by the Progressives, are numerous.  Both were at one point purchased quietly.  You didn’t want your neighbors to know you owned one.  They are often kept locked away.  They are not used often but when you want one they are hard to come by. 

Think of the symbols that are misused the same way.  I think of the cross for one.  I see it being worn by Jesus-rejecting pagans every day.  It offends me but I don’t rip them from their necks and pound them over the head with a baseball bat.  How about a wedding ring.  Those are worn by people who violate the oath represented on a regular basis.  Some people wear them that are not even married.  How about tight fitting knit clothing worn by people who should wear mumus.  Okay, I could go for a law banning those.

Most people in the South did not own slaves.  Most people in the South also did not like the federal government trying to run their lives.  I think that the current hatred for the Confederate flag by the anarchists of the left (Progressives, Communists, Democrats, RINOs, college professors) is because it represents a rejection of a small elite running the lives of the many.  It is a declaration for personal freedom. 

And get a little historical perspective.  In 1860, when Abraham Lincoln was elected, slavery was still legal in most of the world.

    1. At least the article was published as an editorial instead of hard news.

      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.
