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 2018-009: Election 2018: A Novel Idea

I wonder if we should suggest a new campaign promise:  I will keep my word.

One of the things you have to admit about Trump is that he is working to fulfill his campaign promises, and I don’t just mean the one to Make America Great Again.  I am talking about things like nominating judges who believe in the Constitution and not their DNC talking points.  How about moving the embassy to Jerusalem?  Then we have the destruction of ISIS.  Shall we go on?

In the face of those accomplishments, struggling against 90% negative media attacks and bogus polls, Donald Trump still has as high an approval rating as Barak Obama at this point in his presidency.  And the new year starts with more.

Just think what could happen in this country and the world if the politicians who are elected by talking like traditional Americans with conservative values would actually get into office and apply their promises.  Is there any end to the prosperity and success that people would experience?

It is worth a try.  What do we have to lose?  Well, our liberty for one thing if we don’t try it.
