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 2019-200: Headlines: Or Not?

I heard about it from my wife.  I saw a meme poster on the internet.  My question was, “Is it true or satire?”  What I am questioning is that ABC used file footage from an air show in Kentucky and labeled it as the result of Trump pulling troops out of Syria.

I guess I will need to spend a few minutes checking....  Yes, it seems to have really happened.  Someone on some blog asked the question, “Don’t they have editors any more?”

I am to the point that I don’t believe anything that the MSM tells me and I am skeptical of what even conservative sites share.  What is funny is the number of times the satire of the Babylon Bee is posted as serious news.

The thing that worries me even more than the media is the general public.  They keep believing that the talking heads and DNC talking-point print media are actually sources of news.  How many times do they need to be lied to before they scratch their heads and wonder?  Have they forgotten the two years of hype on investigating Trump?  Have they forgotten the 30,000 e-mails?  Didn’t they see the clip of Joe Biden bragging about threatening the Ukraine government?  Don’t they remember..., well, I guess they don’t want to because that would mean they have to admit they have been suckers.

My main advice is stop getting sucked into the click bait.  Cut their revenues.  Don’t use their coupons.  Work on taking the country back.
