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 2018-010: Headlines: Conspiracy Anyone?

My wife has discovered You Tube and all the conspiracy theories being broadcast.  It will be interesting to see how it all plays out.  One meme going around is that the Trump administration has submitted thousands of sealed indictments against the people involved in the deep state and other corruption.  The number varies.  The jury is still out for me on the rumor.

But I find one thing interesting.  I am seeing recurring strange things happening in resignations and changes of heart.  It is the kind of thing that makes me wonder if some people in positions of authority have been informed of the evidence for their deviance and given a chance to do some kind of plea bargain. 

Take the judge who resigned suddenly from the 9th Circuit out west.  Someone made an accusation and he was out of there. 

Take the legislation that is suddenly being passed by people who were claiming they were going to block it.

Then I saw several references to the charges against the Bundy family being dropped with prejudice.  Evidently this means that charges cannot be filled again.  What is shocking is that the judge gave the proper ruling.  This is surprising because the judge had been intent on throwing the book at Bundy and was doing everything she could to prejudice the trial against him.  Now suddenly she throws the trial out.

Could this be another case of a corrupt judge that Trump has the goods on deciding not to push her luck?

Maybe I will have to get on board with the conspiracy crowd.  Anybody got an extra tin hat?
