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 2020-278: Levels of Liberty

America has just about every type of topography you could ask for and some you wouldn’t.  The people are different too.  It is interesting to see how they respond to the government overreach for the China virus.  My observations only cover a part of the South but I would imagine the principles can be applied everywhere.  Everywhere we go there are signs up demanding compliance with face masks.  Some places you see most people covered.  Other places they just ignore the signs and get on with life.  I am surprised to see that the people of Alabama are more willing to ignore the government mandate than the assumed rebels of Texas.  Americans are trying to get on with their lives.  The government goons are trying to bring us to heal.  The timid sheep are so full of fear that they actually believe there is a plague and the State is going to keep them safe.

It ain’t gonna happen.  The government does not want you safe, it wants you compliant.  If you go online away from the MSM sources you have come across the Fauci expectation:  We need to do what we are told.  I don’t know about you but that probably stopped in my teen age years and definitely got ignored after I turned 21.  Even getting drafted, going to Vietnam and spending one year, seven months and four days in the military didn’t drive the resistance to being controlled out of my system.  

If you are living in an area where the jack boots are stomping mandatory masking into your life you need to realize that it is not that way everywhere.  There are states where the people are still practicing their freedom and living their lives.  There are states like Texas where the response is mixed and the political leaders are going to have a serious wake up call in two years if they don’t back down.  Of course we have the Democrat swamps like California, New York and Virginia.  If you live there I would suggest that you start with local elections like city councils, sheriff, school boards, municipal judges and library boards and start working to clean house.  

The longer we wait the harder it will be to preserve “the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity”.  In case you don’t recognize that it is from the Preamble to the Constitution.

  1. Getting people to vote issues instead of party is one of the hardest things on earth.

    1. Right after confessing that they are sinners and need a savior.

      Grace and peace
