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 2020-133: Buddy, Got Some Change?

“You go to war with the army you have.”  I have seen that idea applied to many different scenarios lately.  It is a statement of truth.  An offshoot of that would be about the problems we are seeing in our leadership during the China virus panic and now the riots in our cities.  The sad truth is we go to war with the government we have.  I also believe that people get the government they deserve.  Keep in mind that the governors and mayors in the shut down states and burning cities tend to be Democrats and have been cheered on by the voters as they implement Democrat policy and reinforce Democrat values.  Have you had enough virtue signaling yet?

Keep in mind that the army changes.  They adapt.  If they don’t they lose.  At the beginning of World War II the Japanese had the finest airplanes and best pilots in the Pacific.  Our guys were blown out of the sky.  They fought on as the nation adapted.  By the end of the war things had definitely changed.  Think of the Civil War.  All the good generals went south.  It took Lincoln years for the Grants and Shermans to rise to the top.  If McClellan had remained in command the United States southern border would be the Potomac, not the Rio Grande.

It is time for the government to make changes.  We are at war for our lives as a nation.  Many people think that Rome fell because it was conquered by barbarians.  Not so.  By the time the Western Roman Empire finally came to an official end it had been infiltrated by the barbarians and the Romans had taken a cultural holiday.  Our barbarians are among us.  They represent a way of life in which the only acceptable result is a country run on Marxist principles.  They want a country like the Soviet Union became with a small group of powerful and wealthy elites at the top and the masses of people living in brainwashed poverty.  That is the goal of the Progressives*.  These people control about everything you read in the establishment press and that your children hear at school.

It is time for the government to change.  In this case the change goes back to the basic principles of the Constitution which involves the rule of law and people being responsible for their own lives.  Those changes start with us in the ballot box.  We cannot continue to elect the likes of Pelosi, Schumer and Romney on the national level.  We cannot afford to let so many of our states be run by the, if you will excuse the phrase, little Hitlers that have emerged to lay down their nonsense regulations.  The change depends on thousands of ballot boxes around the country.  If the people of Michigan, Wisconsin and New York are happy with their leadership then we may want to start talking about a peaceable division of the country between the coastal elites and the working class fly over country.  (Yes, I know that Michigan and Wisconsin are not on the coast.)

Change is coming.  If the Progressives* have their way we will all go down together.  If people wake up we will see the results of MAGA.  If we can’t agree maybe it is time to go our own ways.
