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 2020-296: The Dictator Is Unknown

As I read a novel that touched on the foundation of the National Socialists and the rise of Adolph Hitler to power, it was clear that Biden himself is not the danger.

In the Weimar Republic Hitler was at first a minor, ambitious politician.  Paul von Hindenburg was the president.  The big break came when he appointed Hitler Chancellor and which gave him the potential to take power.  The similarity to today is that Hindenburg at this point in history was a doddering old man.  Sound familiar?

The leftist media has been calling Trump Hitler since the beginning.  As I have observed along with many others, if Trump was half the dictator he is accused of being the talking heads would have been lined up and shot years ago.  George W. Bush went through the same treatment.  The closer parallel is that there is someone waiting in the wings to take over from the doddering old Biden.  Harris?  Hillary?  The one who is really behind Biden’s nomination?  I hope we never find out.

Keep in mind that the office of dictator goes back to the Roman Republic.  Dictators were given power by the people.  They did not usurp it or pull a coup.  In a sense they are elected.  Originally they were only to serve for one year.  I don’t think America is ready for that.  At least I can say that the 80 million who voted for Trump are not ready.

  1. I think that Obama is the face that we would see, but even he is only a puppet.

    1. It could be a general or a CEO. The way they have rigged this election they can chose anyone they want.

      And I am not sure that anyone we see is not a puppet, except for Trump.

      Grace and peace
