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 2018-005: Timing

I am sure you have heard about the comments that Steve Bannon was supposed to have made to Michael Wolff.  The consensus seems to be that Wolff is not a reliable source for much of anything but what I have read seems to overlook one thing:  The timeline.

It takes months for a book to be written and published.  You also need to allow time for the supposed interviews and such.  Even if Bannon said something close to what is quoted it was said months ago, possibly around the time he left the White House.  So what if he and Trump had hot words months ago.  Months ago I was saying I would never vote for the man and we know how that went.

Does the book clear this up?  I don’t know and I am not going to read it to find out.  Feel free to let me know.

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.
