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 2018-066: Balkanization Is Bad News

Pray for South Africa.  If you don’t know why, look at my last post.  We also need to pray for our country.

The United States has been divided by the race baiting of the Democrats in general and the Obama administration in particular.  We are witnessing an attempt to Balkanize the country by identity politics.  Look at the headlines of the attacks of something called “whiteness”.  Look at black college students calling for areas that are off limits to whites on campus.  Look at the bigotry of Black Lives Matter.  Racism is on the rise and it is not coming from conservatives or whites.

If America is on its last legs it will disintegrate from within not by attacks from other countries.  It will come because the glue that held us together will be dissolved by the left.  That is made up of most Democrats and all of the closet communists claiming to be moderate Americans.  When we get to the point where most blacks, Latinos and whites identify by their race instead of their commitment to the rule of law, we are toast.  That toast will not go down without a lot of violence and bloodshed.

The best thing that each of us can do is to pray and put feet to our prayers.  Pray because at its heart this is a spiritual battle for the hearts, minds and souls of Americans.  Put feet to out prayers by refusing to be categorized as white, black or brown.  Don’t let the hate mongers turn you against your fellow Americans.  Refuse to put people in slots.  Deal with each person as an individual.  And don’t be shamed into silence because you see evil as evil.

I don’t want to go the way of the Balkans, Northern Ireland, Rwanda, Zimbabwe or any other part of the world that has degenerated into the human tradition of hatred for anyone who dresses different or has a different shape to their head.  We will unless each of us accepts responsibility for our conduct and refuses to be intimidated.

  2. Definitely not on the vacation list for destinations this summer. Quite unfortunate.

    1. It seems to be the result of letting Communists and their sanitized buddy socialists get too much power.

      Grace and peace
