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 2018-170: He’s Makin’ a List

I did not watch any of the “testimony” of Peter Strzok gave to congress.  I heard the bits and pieces that the different media outlets wanted to share.  I am glad the interview is going on but at the same time don’t think it will make much difference.  Congress already has more than enough information to be demanding indictments on everyone from Barak Obama to Hillary’s maid and they have done nothing.  Flynn and Manafort are in jail and others have been harassed by Mueller for simply being on the wrong team.  Meanwhile, Comey can testify under oath that he gave classified memos to a reporter and nothing happens.

There was one point that sums up the whole problem.  I am sure that you have heard what Louie Gohmert had to say about Strzok’s reliability. 
'How many times did you look so innocent into your wife's eyes and lie to her?'
As much as everyone gasped and came unglued at that moment of honesty, that is really a question that should be asked of many people in the limelight. 

How can you put people in positions of authority and power when they are cheating on their wives and husbands?  If you will betray such a basic relationship of trust, what will you not betray?  Truth and honesty are basics of good government.  They are the foundations of a culture that seeks to live in peace, prosperity and liberty.  Think about it.  After you get your oil changed do you take a bit of the oil to a lab to see if they put in the good stuff?  How do you know that the coffee you are drinking is really organic and “sustainable”?  Was your cheese really aged two years?  We take a lot on faith.  No one would have time to check out everything.

As conservatives we need to seek out people who know what it is to be honest.  If you are also a Christian then you need to be the model of integrity.  I realize that none of us will be perfect and I understand that you can’t tell your wife what she really looks like in that dress.  Having said that we need to watch and when we find this kind of deceit going on, start a list like Santa Claus only make sure that you check it more than twice.
