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 2019-182: Imortal Quotes: Modern versions

I have said many things in my life that have made me cringe.  Fortunately most people never remember them.  We are all probably better off with that being the case.  Some people are quoted so much that it would be hard to pin them down for their greatest wisdom.  Some, like Benjamin Franklin and Abraham Lincoln, are so often misquoted or falsely quoted that it is hard to tell where to start and stop.

Think of some famous quotes, or quotes that used to be famous before the Progressives took over control of education.

Martin Luther, “Here I stand”

Nathan Hale, “I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country.”

Horace Greeley, “Go west, young man...”

John Ruskin, “There is hardly anything in the world that some man cannot make a little worse and sell a little cheaper, and the people who consider price only are this man's lawful prey.”

FDR:  “Nothing to fear but fear itself”

Harry Truman: “The buck stops here.”

What will modern news makers be known for?  You might have your own suggestions but here are a few.

Ronald Reagan: Evil Empire, “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall.”

President Trump:  Fake News

Hillary Clinton:  Deplorables, Vast Right Wing Conspiracy

Bill Clinton:  What the meaning of “is” is.

Richard Nixon:  “I am not a crook.”

Barak Obama:  “You will be able to keep your doctor.”

Any liberal:  “Racist!!!!”

I am sure this is just a short list.  Some have said a lot of memorable things.  The question is, what will we remember.  For me the hardest to remember will always be the last 10 things my wife told me to do.
