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 2020-193: Dated Vision

We refer to 20/20 as having perfect vision.  It means we can see reality at normal distances.

I saw a meme talking about 20/20 become a reference for going crazy.  Might I suggest that it could also turn out to being the year that people woke up, put on their reality glasses, and began to see reality.  I apologize for the misuse of the word “woke”.

In order to put on your reality glasses you will need to take off your rose tinted lenses.  You need to accept the fact that these are not just idealistic youth out protesting injustice.  They are Social Justice Warriors out to destroy your way of life.  They may be too naive to realize that it will also ruin their way of life but you can’t help that.  You need to realize that appeasement does not work.  It didn’t work for Neville Chamberlain, it didn’t work for Hezekiah, it didn’t work for the liberals in Seattle and Minneapolis.  It will not work for you.

Remember some of the basic differences between you and the rioters.  You want to build.  They want to destroy.  You work and pay your own bills.  If they have a job it is minimum wage and very temporary.  They expect someone else to pay the bills.  They own nothing and want what you have so they can destroy it.  They are barbarians.  Remember that a common activity for barbarians is destroying great works of art and burning libraries.  They are starting with our statues and drooling over your home.

If you can’t see it, get your eyes checked.

Comments are welcome. Feel free to agree or disagree but keep it clean, courteous and short. I heard some shorthand on a podcast: TLDR, Too long, didn't read.
