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 2017-303: Headlines: You Can Run but You Cannot Hide

Or as I used to tell students who thought they could get away from me, “I know where you live”.  The context of my observations is an article in the Washington Times talking about parents pulling their children out of a school that taught a lesson on accepting transgenders.  The parents only found out about it because the children told them.  It used to be sex education that the schools hid, now it is creative sexuality that gets the nod.  Most parents don’t spend much time talking or listening to their children so they still don’t know.

These parents have my sympathy.  This is one of the reasons why we decided to home school our children.  We even avoided Christians schools because of the trend in the church to conform to the world instead of being salt.  What the parents need to understand is that you can’t get away from this stuff.  It is being pushed with dollar signs and jail time.  That is a modern version of the carrot and the stick.  If the school conforms to the demands of the Progressive leftists in education and government, they get a check.  If they refuse they can go to jail.  Sounds like a win/win for the socialists and a lose/lose for America.

A comment by one official should be underlined in red and printed in capitals.
“Rocklin Academy is not the only school bypassing parents to teach children the progressive view of gender identity.”
And of course this was in California.  What is scary is the way in which I see education in Texas going the way of education in California.  The cultural civil war is being fought and only one side is showing up at the battle field.  I think we are finding out what happens if they give a war and nobody comes.  The host of the conflict wins.

Children today are required to have a Social Security Number.  They know where your children are.  When we home schooled we were able to drop off the grid because the kids did not have numbers.  That can’t be done today.  SSN are assigned at birth.  They know who you are and where you are at.  Soon it may be a computer chip like you put in your pet.

666 anyone?
