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 2017-417 English Lessons

Most of us are familiar with the liberal bias in American newspapers.  It is a given.  I thought I would look at an English newspaper and see how they were doing.  I turned to The Independent and I will let you be the judge.  Here is the first sentence in the article,
“If there was anything to beat in mediocrity the childish and delinquent declaration by Donald Trump that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital, it was the pathetic response from Muslim states.”
Do you sense any bias here?  I realize that this is an editorial, but to start out calling President Trump’s statement “childish and delinquent” seems a bit foam-at-the-mouth to me.  Am I really supposed to take him seriously?  I guess if I were a brain damaged liberal I would be shouting “Amen”, but I am not and I didn’t.  I tried to read a few more lines but it was more of the same.  Maybe you can get farther than I did.

I will keep looking.  And just as “Deplorable” has become a badge of honor, we may need to get stickers printed up that say, “I am childish and delinquent”.

  1. The British seem entirely too full of opinions but severely lacking in enough sense to run their own country.

    1. They seem to have become the original snowflakes.

      Grace and peace
