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 2020-171: Cornerstone Considerations: D of I, Who Is “He”?

I am practicing what I preach.  I am reading the Declaration of Independence.  It is hard to get past the first two paragraphs without joining a militia, but I made it.  As I continue to read I come across things I have written on before,
“He has erected a Multitude of new Offices, and sent hither Swarms of Officers to harass our People, and eat out their Substance.”
As I kept reading I kept seeing things that the Founding Fathers acknowledged.  They seem to keep happening.  With the recent riots I noticed this passage.
“He has excited domestic Insurrections amongst us, and has endeavored to bring on the Inhabitants of our Frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known Rule of Warfare, is an undistinguished Destruction, of all Ages, Sexes and Conditions.”
We have certainly been experiencing this as a nation.  It has not touched my neighborhood but, if it is not reined in, may be here soon.  The insurrection is not random or spontaneous.  It is organized and encouraged. 

As I read through the different issues I kept coming across the word “he”.  In the Declaration it is clear that they are referring to King George III of England and the people he appointed.  We are in theory a republic.  We are not supposed to have kings any more, yet, we see the same things happening and seem powerless to stop them.  Who has assumed the Imperial We in our culture?

Who is “he”?  Who is this person or group that is doing everything it can to destroy us as a free people?  I have a few suggestions.

The first “he” is a congressionally and constitutionally authorized establishment which has gotten way out of hand.  I refer to the courts and the activist judges who are trying to turn the United Stated into a People’s Republic.  The Founders feared a court coup, and they had good reason.

Another “he” is the media.  As clever criminals will do, they know the rules we use and find ways to abuse and destroy them.  They know about the first amendment.  For themselves they fight for it with all they have.  For those who disagree with them, not so much.  In fact they put more effort into destroying our rights than they do defending their own.  You see, no one is trying to take away theirs, so they can spend their energy on stifling us.

“He” would currently refer to Governors and Mayors who have used the current race baiting to advance their own secret dreams of sadistic power.  They get a rush from crushing the helpless.

Will we overcome this?  I hope so.  I fled the People’s Republik of Kalifornia to the Free State of Texas only to find that the governor here seems to have drunk the kool-aide too.  I guess you can’t run and, long term, you can’t hide.

Time to stand.
