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 2020-026: Divine Rights of Presidents

To the Progressives* Donald Trump has become Jehovah God.

They blame everything on (H)im.  I could live with that except they only blame the bad stuff.

I remember reading a post by a man who was hurting.  He had lost a grandchild and was bitter about it.  He stated that he could never believe in a God who would allow something like that to happen.  Emotionally I can only pretend to understand because I have not had that kind of loss.  Intellectually I see his train of logic.  Like too many people he tends to see things through his pain and with himself in the center.  I hope he will work his way through it.

For Progressives* I don’t have such hope.  In order to live in their little bubbles of cause and effect they need to work overtime to isolate themselves from reality.  They are surrounded by so much information that they need to make conscious decisions to deny reality.  They are the people who believe that the world is going to end because of global warming.  They somehow cling to the nonsense that only white people are capable of being racist.  They think unborn babies are nothing but blobs of tissue.  They think welfare helps people.  They think more money will solve the problems in education.

And the only thing keeping these dreams from fulfillment is Donald Trump.  If only he would stop tweeting.  And just like life in the real world, not believing in God will get you nowhere.
