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 2018-110: Headlines: Who Likes Trump and Emma?

Recent events make me begin to wonder about President Trump.  I am referring to the positive comments uttered by Kanye West.  I know that the enemy of my enemy can be my ally.  What do you do when someone on the left endorses your man?  To quote Ronald Reagan, “Trust but verify.”

There are many issues in the world that I am either not bright enough to understand, don’t have time to research or am too lazy to study.  In those situations what I do is take the word of people I trust.  Kanye West is a name I know.  How could I teach middle school and not have heard of him.  To this day I cannot remember how to pronounce his first name.  Should I be concerned about his pronouncements?  I find them of interest but he is not high on my list of wise men. 

A case in point:  As I did a little research I find that he has just praised Emma Gonzalez of bald headed Parkland fame.  I was trying to verify what my memory told me, he is married to Kim Kardashian.  These are not marks of becoming a trusted source.

Was his comment about Trump just a publicity tweet?  Was it a case of the broken clock being right twice a day?  Was it sincere?  Will it last?

I am not going to buy a bust of Kayne to put in my guru room.
