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 2020-241: War Games

Remember the line, “What would happen if they had a war and nobody came?”  The question of course is the meaningless pap served up as vegan sirloin by the left.  The real answer to the question is what we are seeing in Seattle, Portland, Chicago, New York, etc.  Pretty isn’t it.  It isn’t a case of flowers sticking out of gun barrels and tanks rusting away in city parks.  It is uncontested violence and mayhem.  The real life result of people thinking that question is clever is “What would happen if they had a war and only one side showed up?”

We are seeing the results.  There is a war going on and one side has so far refused to show up.  We keep thinking that you can play nice with barbarians.  I apologize to the barbarians because they at least had some kind on honor.  These insurrectionists on our streets have none.  They have the bully philosophy:  If it is weak, beat.  If it is strong, run.  If it fights back, cry “Mama.”

Can you picture where the world would be today if the world had refused to stand up to Adolf Hitler.  What language would we be speaking today if the Polish army had not arrived at Vienna in time to stop the Ottoman invasion?  There come times in history when you can’t back up and draw another line in the sand.  If we are not already there we are getting close.  You need to begin thinking today about how you will respond when the thugs start down your street with their bottles of gasoline and Bic lighters.  

The war has started.  How will it finish?
