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 2019-051: More Macho Please

We hear a lot of criticism of the macho man.  The loner of the westerns has his problems.  There is a needed emphasis on working together but there is one character trait of the John Wayne role that we need more of:  Sacrifice for the good of the whole.

The loner may go his own way.  He may walk a path that is not for the masses.  He also is willing to stand up for what he believes is right.  The cost is not the issue.  The point is honor and standing for the good.  He is willing to die on principle even if he is the only casualty.

We need more of that.  We cannot wait for group think to come around.  The masses are swayed by the indoctrination of the public schools and the mass media.  They are told what to think and that is necessary since they were never allowed to think.  Our country, our world, needs more men and women who are willing to stand tall.  They may be knocked down but it is the only way that the brainwashed can be awakened instead of being woke.

One person standing up may not turn the tide.  At least it will feel like it didn’t matter to the one standing alone.  It will always feel lonely but if enough individuals take the risk be will see America becoming what it is meant to be.  It could be a minor issue like not sitting in the no parking zone with your engine idling.  It may be refusing to push a button that will end in many deaths.  I cannot stand up for you and you cannot take my place but together we can make a difference.

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.
