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 2018-208: Fake Outrage

The talking heads were outraged over the movie called First Man.  It tells the story of the first landing on the moon but deliberately cuts out the scene where the American flag is planted.  It seems that the film makers are America haters and felt it was an achievement for mankind, not the United States.  They were angry, but it seems they were still going to see it. 

Another talking head talked about his dislike for Robert DeNero because of his anti-American screeds.  But he still goes to DeNero’s movies.  I guess he got upset enough half way through one to get up and leave but I didn’t hear anything about asking for his money back.  You can do that, you know.  My children have done it and received a refund.  Even if you lose the money you make a point to the theater manager who wants your repeat business.

 People criticize the New York Times but still read it.  I think it must be some kind of mentality that we used to hear about Playboy Magazine, “I only buy the magazine for the articles.” 

When are we going to catch on.
