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 2018-120: Cornerstone Considerations: CUSA, The Iran Deal

I have not read any “news” articles about it but I am coming across the idea that Iran might release a list of people who took bribes to endorse the big payoff they received from Obama.  It sounds good but I am afraid we need to get out the salt shaker and take a few grains.  My guess is that there will be some interesting revelations but the spill as a whole would fall into the category of fake news.  Since when can we take the word of Iran on anything?

As much as we might want to see and believe the list I think it would need to be verified.

If it can be, then it is time for some trials for more than bribery.  Some crimes are well defined in the Constitution. 

Article IV, Section 3.
1.  Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort.  No person shall be convicted of treason unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open court.
The Founders were serious about this.  Maybe we should be too.  And when it says “two witnesses” it doesn’t mean CNN and MSNBC.

  1. I'd thought of that, too. They might give the names of their opposition, not their flunkies. (Why would they stab their friends, when stabbing their enemies would be so much more satisfying for them?)

    1. Sometimes I worry about you being as cynical as I am.

      Grace and peace


Comments are welcome. Feel free to agree or disagree but keep it clean, courteous and short. I heard some shorthand on a podcast: TLDR, Too long, didn't read.
