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 2018-168: Headlines: A Sparkling Nomination

We have a nomination.  Next step is a confirmation.  I don’t know if I should be rejoicing or mourning.  It depends on whom you read and what they think they know.  We are all familiar with Nancy Pelosi’s famous statement that we need to pass the bill so we can find out what is in it.  For a legislature that is pure ignorance, arrogance or manipulation.  Or it may be all three.  In the case of a Supreme Court Justice that is the way it needs to be.

At the press conference everyone said the right things.  All we know at this point is that Brett Kavanaugh claims to believe that the Constitution should be understood to mean what it says, not what the current justice says it means.  We heard the same thing from Chief Justice Roberts and Clarence Thomas.  In one case it was a smoke screen, in the other it was genuine.  The problem is that we will not know until the proof hits the pudding.

So far Trump has done his homework.  I am willing to have hope for the future because he seems to be showing where his heart is.  I am convinced that Trump believes that Kavanaugh is the genuine article.  Only time will tell. 

Another reason that I have hope is because I believe with the Founding Fathers that the rights we have are endowed by our Creator.  God is in charge.  If we can survive eight years of Obama doing everything he can to destroy the country with the aid of the media, education system and RINOs, we can trust God to see us through.  It is more important that we live in righteousness than who sits on the Supreme Court.  Remember that Sodom would have been spared if there had only been a few particles of salt and a couple of sparks of light.

So get out there and sparkle.
