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 2018-048: Headlines: Listen to Your Betters

Have you ever felt an inclination to accept the opinion of experts?  Maybe you will want to take a look at this article in The Free Beacon.  A group of “experts”, i.e. political science scholars, sat down and rated presidents.  I will give you one guess who they rated as worst.  You nailed it, Donald Trump.  And the same group of wise heads say that Obama was eighth best, right ahead of Ronald Reagan.  My first reaction was to check the web site to make sure I was not reading the People’s Cube.  They are known for their satire.  No, these people are serious.

I would suggest if you are ever looking for a group to pick a doctor for you, don’t go to these people.  They would probably recommend Dr. Kevorkian.  The article made a big deal of showing how even the Republican scholars rated Obama high and Trump low.  My guess is that the “Republicans” in the group were people who had re-registered so that their departments could claim diversity.  I would guess that all of them voted for Obama, twice.

Be careful whom you trust.  Be double careful if they have a Ph.D.
