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 2018-058: Headlines: 2020 for Democrats Looks Like 2016 for Republicans

I almost ignored the headline on Fox News about the large field of candidates looking at running for president in 2020 in the Democrat Primaries.  My first reaction was, “Who cares.”  My second reaction was, “Who cares.”  Eventually my mind got past that stage and I thought about it a little.

I think this is a really good thing.  It has the small possibility that it might move the Democrats a little back toward being Americans again.  Not much possibility, but any hope is better than none.

If you bother looking at the article and go down the list it will depress you.  It is amazing how many of the names you will know because they have been such visible fools in the last two years.  I can’t believe that Joe Biden still leads the list.  Yes, the same Joe Biden who told us to shoot through the door with our shot guns.  The same Joe Biden who voiced racial stereotypes about the owners of 7-11 Stores.  Then you have Jerry Brown wanting to bring the Miracle of Kalifornia to the rest of the states.  You have to include Elizabeth Warren identifying as an American Indian and Cory Booker doing his Angry Black Man charade. 

Eventually you get down to the names that have never made the CNN line up of socialists.  This is where the hope might be hiding.  I can’t help but wonder if in that pack there might not be one Democrat who still have some moral fiber, patriotism and statesmanship.  It would be so glorious if the Democrat Primaries actually had a choice wider that Left and Lefter. 

I can hope, but I will not hold my breath.  I don’t look good in blue when it is on my face.

  1. It's now IMPOSSIBLE to be a democrat and have any morals. If you look at their platform, they stand against everything God is for and for everything God is against. Since man's "morals" are merely opinions, their opposition to God makes them unable to have any morals.

    1. Think of them as being members of a cult that denies the basics of Christianity but the individual has missed that and still has a saving faith. I am not saying it is a high probability, just possible. It is like getting hit by lightening. Like that though, few survive the experience.

      Grace and peace
