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 2019-075: Can You Dig It?

Maybe it is time to start building a 21st Century version of the fallout shelter. 

I am not fixating on nuclear holocaust.  I don’t expect Rocket Man to be able to reach Los Angeles with a nuke.  Even if he does, I live in Texas now.  I am worried about a social nuclear arms race that is taking place.  It is expressing itself now in a growing hatred of Jews by the liberals in this country.  The same hatred is simmering toward people whom are serious about their Christian faith.  It is time to prepare for the hunts. 

Historically we have a lot of precedent for building secret closets to hide people.  Those of us who went to school before it was taken over by the socialists remember that many people in Europe walled off rooms and attics to hide Jews being hunted by the Nazis.  “The Diary of a Young Girl” by Anne Frank is still being read but I don’t know what kind of editing has gone into it.  Someone hid her.  A generation ago we had the book/movie “The Hiding Place” about the ten Boom family that were arrested and killed for hiding Jews.  It is what we can expect from the growing power of Antifa and the other goons on the left.

You may have found it romantic to consider the secret passages in castles and old homes.  They were real and they had a purpose.  Many in England were built during the Catholic/Protestant religious wars.  Catholics would hide a traveling priest so that he could hold mass and then move on to another secret closet.  If he was caught he would be killed so this was a serious thing.

Escape tunnels were sometimes dug out of cabins on the frontier in America.  If the Indians trapped you and burned the house, you had a way to get out.

Or consider the stations on the Underground Railroad.  People would dig out rooms off of their cellars or false walls in the house to hide slaves that were running for freedom.

It can happen here.  I don’t know if it will start with Jews or Christians but the day will come when they come for people who live by a higher authority than the state.

Start digging.

  1. I'm sure you're right. Maybe we'll be lucky and be dead by then. Maybe not.

    1. I am old enough it could go either way.

      Grace and peace
