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 2019-058: Headlines: Time for Swords not Cheeks

The report is out and the conclusion is that there was no collusion.  The meme we keep hearing is a big nothingburger.  The strange thing to me is that even if there was “collusion”, I read that there is no such crime.

The big point of the two year investigation is not so much that President Trump was colluding but that the MSM, DOJ, FBI and CIA were working with the Democratic party in trying to negate a lawful electing and remove the president.  They were trying for a coup and fell on their face.  The big question is where do we go from here.

The criminals and their allies are calling for us to move on and forget it, after all it was yesterday’s news.  That would go along with the Christian concept of turning the other cheek.  After all. if we just focus on the negative how can we move forward?  It is also misguided.  It is time for Donald Trump to move from turning the other cheek to bearing the government sword against evil.  I don’t think he needs to go on the attack for personal revenge but because he is responsible to the Constitution and the citizens of the United States.  He needs to protect us from the coercion of leftist tyranny. 

The Biblical basis is found in Romans 13.  Thus we have,
(Romans 13:1-4 KJV)  Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.  Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.  For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same:  For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.
As an individual Trump should forgive.  As President he needs to pick up the sword and “execute wrath upon him that doeth evil”.

It is a clear evil that Flynn and Manafort are sitting in custody while Hillary and Comey are living the high life.  If we are going to see good prevail we must charge the government with rooting out the evil.

Let the trials begin.
