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 2020-110: Monday Pulpit: Chips of the Beast

If you are a Christian and getting nervous pat yourself on the back.  If you are not a Christian and wonder why Christians are getting nervous it is because you haven’t read the book.  I am referring to a growing voice calling for every person to carry an ID to show that they have been vaccinated.  For the Progressives* this is a dream come true.  It will allow them to expand their control to levels that the average citizen cannot comprehend.

Most people have seen the number 666 used in ways they may not understand.  Others have heard of something called the “mark of the beast”.  These are flags that are found in the Bible to designate the final world government that is prophesied to arise to destroy God’s people. 

You need a little Bible quoting to get this.  Keep in mind that this was written thousands of years ago.  There are a number of references to beasts in Revelation but one we are concerned with is in chapter 13.

The prophecy says that everyone will be required to receive this mark.
(Rev 13:16-17 KJV) And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:  And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
When you hear people talking about government issued, digital ID and doing away with cash this verse pops into people’s minds if they are familiar with the Bible.  Notice that you will not be able to buy or sell without this mark on your body.  The ideas being put forward by Bill Gates and Dr. Fauci fit right into this scenario.  Where does the 666 come from?
(Rev 13:18 KJV) Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
You have seen the memes that have German soldiers stopping people and examining their papers.  If you have never traveled much you might not realize how much other governments are already doing this kind of thing.  In most countries the police have the right to stop you any time and demand your “papers”.  If you travel you will often be required to turn in your passport at the desk of the hotel or at least have it registered. 

One of the reasons I am against a government issued national ID is because of the ability it gives the government to track you and control you.  Picture how this would go if all your transactions required a chip to complete.  Some little man with a Napoleon complex, sitting in an isolated office who has just had his wife humiliate him in public will be able to decide if you should be able to buy a ticket to leave on vacation.  If you think the IRS or DMV are hard to deal with just picture dealing with something like this.

If you have nothing to hide and are happy with your cable and six pack, it is possible that you will never notice...until you do and then it will be too late.

Don’t let the hype over another flu season allow you to give away your liberty.

  1. I will refuse to take a COVID immunization. Besides it being hastily thrown together and barely tested, I am quite wary of what they may be putting in it (like a chip) besides what is supposed to be in there. I rather suspect that that will cause my doctor to take me off of his patient list. He


Comments are welcome. Feel free to agree or disagree but keep it clean, courteous and short. I heard some shorthand on a podcast: TLDR, Too long, didn't read.
