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 2020-187: What You See Is What You Get

I recently wrote on another blog, “how people who seem to be intelligent and decent can disagree with me on so many issue.”  As I read the news and watch various clips I find that I don’t need to ask that question.  The people I am seeing in the streets are largely neither.  Their handlers may be intelligent but are certainly not well meaning.  As for the rank and file, they have no contact with either attribute.

A lot of it can be traced back to their school teachers.  In science they have abandoned the scientific method and instead look for evidence based conclusions.  They still call it the Scientific Method, but it isn’t.  They still act like Democrats are patriotic Americans too.  The global warming farce is part of this.  Of course they filter the evidence.  They have no observation skills or curiosity.  One of my favorite illustrations about the ice melting and the oceans rising is to put ice cubes in a glass of water, mark the level of the water, let the ice melt and check how much it has changed.

In history the teachers didn’t pay any attention when they were in class so they don’t know a totally bogus presentation when they see it.  This also applies to global warming.  It never occurs to them to wonder why Greenland was called green if it was covered with ice.  No, it wasn’t an announcement in the Babylon Bee.  It could also be forgetting the current events of a few years ago when we were warned about global cooling.

My only conclusion is that they are either incredibly stupid or unbelievably evil.  Maybe both and my conclusion is not based just on the fact that they don’t agree with me.  I have found stupid people that agree that throwing rocks is violent and I have Calvinist friends that disagree with me on eternal security whom I would never consider evil.
