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 2020-237: Never-Never Land

Nineteen years and the “Never” has become an empty promise.  

911 changed the game with terrorism.  It did so in one day.  It did so in a way that was hard to ignore.  People are ignoring it anyway.  Before September 11 we were used to calling in the negotiators and working out a deal that did not involve a lot of innocent people being murdered.  There was no negotiation as the airplanes slammed into the Twin Towers.  It was a simple announcement, “You are not hearing us.  It wouldn’t matter if you did.  We hate you.  We will kill you.”

Antifa/BLM has changed the game in political protest.  It did not happen in one day.  The media has been doing everything they can to cover up the message.  The word has been slowly getting out but there are still a lot of people living in denial.  They also have a simple message, “We don’t care if you are hearing us.  We hate you.  We are going to destroy your world and if you get in the way we will destroy you too.”  It seems clear.

Both 911 terrorists and Antifa/BLM terrorists are highly trained.  They know what they want and are willing to do whatever it takes to get it.  One group went out in a flash of glory.  The other is going to continue until they run into a wall.  One group was sponsored by foreigners and foreign governments.  The current terrorists have added one of our major political parties as a sponsor.  What is scary is that 47% that Mitt Romney first brought up.  We keep seeing them in the statistics.  They will mindlessly endorse anything the Democrat Party tells them.

It is going to be a bumpy ride.  I hope to see you alive and well on the 20 year anniversary of 911.  Next stop, November 3.

  1. What scares ME is 2024 if I'm still here. Eight years is about as much decency and common sense as Americans can stand.

    1. We are salt. Keep in mind that a few righteous individuals could have saved Sodom. Keep in mind how bad it was in the mine wars that you write about. Rejoice that you don't live in California or New York.

      Grace and peace
