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 2020-310: Path to Restoration: Part 1 of 3, Reform

Lets look forward assuming that Trump wins.  Does that take care of the problem of corruption?  Does the swamp suddenly go away?  Do Rinos change their spots?  Okay, so it is leopards that do that.  If you say “Yes” then all I can say is a Southern, “Well, bless your heart.”  Lets take another leap of faith and assume that we get a bunch of laws passed that are carefully targeted to deal with election crimes.  We put people in jail and start impeaching people who betray their country for personal power.  We pull out the plumb and say, “What a good boy am I.”

It won’t make any difference.  People who want to defy the law are endlessly creative.  If you don’t know that, consider all of the clever work-arounds that the gun owners of California have come up with to thwart the dreams of the gun grabbers.  I have not kept up on all of them but one of the adaptations I remember was that the Progressives* in government mandated that magazines require a tool to be removed.  The object was to make it hard to reload.  Fans of the AR-15 said, “Okay.  See this bullet?  It becomes a tool which depresses the recessed button that you thought would stop us.”  Legal?  Yes.  Simple?  Yes.  So the Progressives* go back to the drawing board.

So what is the next regulation?  How long will it take to find a work-around?

The same will be true in passing a bunch of laws to curb election fraud.  We already have laws on the books that makes most of what happened illegal.  The results came in several forms:  Crickets, judges changing the rules by fiat, officials ignoring the rules, DA’s and governors ignoring the law.  In other words, the law did nothing because the people we put in place to enforce the law use selective application to advance their wants and desires.  Keep in mind that the gun grabbers want to pass more laws to outlaw guns to stop the violence.  I might point out that the violence is already against the law.

Can we find a way out?  Yes, but it will be painful and many of you won’t like it.

*(Liberals, educators, socialists, communists, elites, Rinos, Democrats, leftists, Never Trumpers, Antifa, etc.  Another word for swamp dwellers)

  1. I fear we will only remain free at the cost of much blood and conservatives don't seem to have the stomach for it. Liberals are another matter; they've shed blood already.

    1. The liberals are willing to shed our blood, not theirs. We must be willing to shed ours. Remember the famous quote of Thomas Jefferson had both the blood of tyrants and patriots being shed.

      Grace and peace
