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 2020-154: Headlines: They Are Coming for Jesus

You may have read about the hate filled individual who is now calling for statues of Jesus to be removed.  He virtue signals that it is because of some strange type of white supremacy.  In going through the memes at Georges Grouse I came across one that gave the real reason.  In case you went to public university, it is a quote from the Old Testament in the Bible.
(Exo 23:1-3 KJV) Thou shalt not raise a false report: put not thine hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness.  Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment:  Neither shalt thou countenance a poor man in his cause.
Progressives* tend to have an intense hatred for anything having to do with the God of the Bible.  The attack on statues of Jesus is just an open expression of that hatred.  Yes, I know this is the Old Testament and Jesus is in the New.  It is still the same God and the same truth.  It is the same sense of justice that says, “Don’t follow the crowd.  Don’t give special treatment to the poor any more than the rich.  Don’t lie to win.”  It is a sense of justice that says truth does not change with today’s headlines or change of special interest groups. 

Obviously the issue is not the lives of black people.  All data shows that most black people who are murdered are murdered by other black people.  The issue is anything that destroys the moral fiber of the countries that are based on Christian values.

In case they are not paying attention, they need to read the Book.  I have.  I know who wins.
