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 2019-084: On the Street: False Advertising

It is hard to go through the blogs on the internet without constantly being barraged by guys trying to raise their viewer stats by posting pictures of babes.  One I appreciate is Theo Spark.  I think he has the pictures but he forces you to click on a link and draws you with words like “skin”, “topless” and “nipples”.  I appreciate the fact that the site allows me to decide whether I want to go voyeur or keep my mind out of the gutter. 

For some reason my thoughts went to a major source of revenue for governments.  The pictures I have seen make me think that we could generate a lot of money if we put a special tax on silicon.  I am not saying that these ladies are a bit out of balance but I somehow think that a lot of what they are showing off is false advertising.  It is kind of like making a large soft drink by adding water to a medium.

In Japan many of the restaurants will have pictures of the items up for sale.  Some even make up plastic models that look very real.  Rarely did the actual product live up to the hype.
