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 2020-119: A Long Term Pattern

One of the great benefits of the viral panic is that the libraries are closed down.  In keeping with the elitist plan, the staff, public employee whom as a group are none for their liberal views, is still getting paid and are available to answer questions.  It has forced me to go to my bookshelf and read books I have been planning on reading for years.  One that I am re-reading is Race and Culture by Thomas Sowell.  After that will come Migrations and Culture, then Conquests and Culture.  I came across an interesting quote that speaks to the controversy over calling this thing the “Wuhan virus” or such things.  He would be banned today if he tweeted this, but that is what would happen to him no matter what he has to say,
“...Asia has suffered far more floods, droughts, earthquakes, and famines than Europe has.  Many of the great epidemic diseases which have struck sporadically in Europe have been endemic in Asia, which has been called an ‘epicentre of viral outbreaks.’  Its diseases have spread through both animal and human populations, and crop diseases have likewise originated in Asia, where agriculture itself originated.”  page 240
Fortunately he said this twenty-five years ago.  It is amazing how the MSM will deny anything if it disrupts their narrative. 

Sowell, Thomas.  Race and Culture.  New York:  Basic Books, 1994.
