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 2020-018: The Prophet’s Hat: Thermostats

The day will come when the progressives begin to require Save the Whales Thermostats.  The name is nonsense but so are most things that come from the progressives.

These Thermostats will only have two settings on them:  Heat and Cool.  The temperature will be preset at the factory.  If you want it to heat the temp will be 68º.  If you want A/C it will only cool to 74º.  These will be smart thermostats so that the governing VAC Czar can radio changes if he is having a bad day at the office.

This does not require much of a gift of prophecy.  People with smart meters and cutting edge thermostats already have the tools in place.  All it needs is someone who is bored and has access to the central controls. 

If you have been following the moves by Democrats in Virginia to disarm the population you have read about threats to turn off people’s utilities to force compliance.  I don’t know if that is from a satire site or real reporting but it can be done overnight, with no danger to the utility employees, to anyone with a smart meter.

When I look at Republicans like Mitt Romney I don’t know if they are the answer but I know that Democrats are the problem.

  1. Actually, we might honestly be better off living in caves. Of course the government would find and regulate them, too.

    1. Having lived in earthquake country I am not sure I would want to live in a cave.

      Grace and peace
