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 2018-162: Headlines: AMLO Derangement Syndrome

Mexico is heading for a change in leadership.  I have read every opinion about this from another Venezuela to genuine hope.  I think there is a parallel with the election of Donald Trump.  We won’t know until the laundry is in.  So let’s hope for the best and keep our powder dry.

If I were to give Mexico’s President Elect any advice it would be the same I would give our president:  Be vigilant for the inevitable attempts at assassination.  A couple of headlines I read said that over 1,300 political candidates were murdered during this election cycle in Mexico.  The left in the United States keeps talking about the violence here and the danger of the “gun culture”.  We are what President Obama would have called the Junior Varsity when it comes to violence.  Mexico would be close to the top of the list if not number one.

So keep your head down AMLO.  Be careful whom you trust.  The drug cartels and crime bosses of Mexico will not go away quietly.

Best wishes.  My prayer is that you are a sincere force for change and that you will get a chance to demonstrate that.

  1. It's my understanding that it's the drug cartels that got him in.

    1. It could be. It would make sense. Only time will tell, the media certainly won't. We need to remember that Russia got Trump elected. Or was Flynn?

      Grace and peace
