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 2020-282: Overlooked Consequences

We read a lot about the disasters that are waiting to happen if Biden wins this election.  We know that the criminals who tried to drag President Trump down will walk away laughing.  We know the ingrained criminals that are manipulating our elections will be emboldened.  Most of what I am reading is serious but most of it focuses on the United States.

I think we need to think about what it will mean to the world also.

The Middle East will return to blood and bombs if Biden is sworn in.  I have heard concern about Iran but little about the extraordinary progress Trump has achieved in bringing Israel together with Muslim countries.  The last count I had was four new countries recognizing Israel.  Biden will do anything he can to turn the clock back.  This will be disaster for the world.

NATO has been forced to grow up and ante up.  Trump has forced them to start moving toward paying their own way.  Poland feels supported.  Ukraine has been getting the aid it needs.  Russia has been restrained.  Assume that will all go belly up if Biden and his minders come to power.

The Chinese will bring about war and bloodshed or simply take over in Southeast Asia with no one standing up to them.  Taiwan is in their sights.  Hong Kong’s protestors will be destroyed.  Korea may become a battle zone again.  I can see dangerous things happening in the world of Japan.  Move a little south and west and we could have open war between India and China.  From what we can see the Bidens will become even richer as they sell Asia to the Chicoms.

As much as I am worried about the future of my grandchildren, this is not just about us.  Trump fights to make America great again but he also works to make the world a better place to live.

  1. And yet they are against him. Their stupidity continues to amaze me after all this time.

    1. It seems to be part of the human condition.

      Grace and peace
