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 2020-162: Headlines: It Sucks to be a Progressive

Is Princeton really going to remove the name of Woodrow Wilson from buildings?  I did a Google search and all the sources I found were as reliable as CNN so I won’t link any, read any or know.  If true, I have mixed feeling about the action.

On one side I say, “It is about time.  Wilson was one of the original Progressives*.  He is guilty of all the things that the current flock of Progressives* accuse him of and on top of that he was a Progressive*.  I won’t go into that here.

On the other side, I am tired of caving in to the “I want!  I want!” antics of the current toddler generation.  Have you ever wondered what it would be like to put a newborn in an adult body with physical coordination and the ability to talk?  I usually bring that up when I am talking about Original Sin.  That is what we have today and someone has handed them a Molotov cocktail, a loaded AK and a spiked club.  When you reward bullies and Marxists revolutionaries they just take it to the next level.  They know they have us in a box.  If we respond with violence then the media will get the blood they want and I guarantee they won’t call us “mostly peaceful protestors”.  If we don’t then they push harder.

One consolation we have is that Marxism tends to eat its own.  Does the name Nikolai Yezhov ring any bells.  Maybe you have seen the doctored picture that shows Stalin walking along with his sycophants paying homage.  In the original photo Yezhov is the man by Stalin’s left elbow.  In the doctored photos he is gone.  It seems he was arrested and executed.  We see the beginnings of this as the wealthy liberals in Minneapolis that owned exclusive homes around their own park suddenly find it filled with homeless people.

Once you start this kind of purge it keeps going until one of two things happen.  First, someone, or a lot of someone’s, gets hurt or killed.  Second choice:  We become a police state.  Worst case is that both will happen.

Start standing up when you get a chance because the chances will disappear the way things are going.
