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 2020-186: Headlines: Your Move, Anarchist

The Daily Wire had a post on federal authorities in Portland as they detain and remove people suspected of being violent protesters.  I saw a video of this a few days ago and had mixed feelings about it.  On the chilling side, a bunch of guys dressed up in camo get out of an unmarked car, walk up to someone, take them by the arms and whisk them away.  On the encouraging side, someone is doing something. 

This article gives better insight.  As far as I can see due process is being followed.  The arrests are taking place to secure federal buildings and employees.  Most of those arrested are released, some are detained.  I didn’t catch how many were let go, but it said that 13 were charged.  As long as they follow the rules and are enforcing the law I am good with this.  It may take a few days for the message to sink in but it will force the enemies of America to change their strategy.

Always think of long term consequences and keep your eyes open.  It could escalate with the anarchists coming for you because your local police will do nothing.  It may move on to the Feds overstepping their mandate and throwing out due process.  The first we can deal with, the second is the real danger.  The current lock downs and mask mandates are evidence of that.

Interesting times.
