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 2021-001: The Two P’s of the New Year, part 1 of 2

As we close out the year we can admit it has been a wild ride.  My forecast is that next year will make this look like the calm before the storm.  I am still praying for a miracle in the presidential election.  Call me a dreamer.  I can live with that.  Although I have my times of dragging spirits, I refuse to live in fear.  Although I consider myself a realist and in some definitions a cynic, I refuse to embrace “Woe is me!”

I live in two worlds.  The secular world does not look good.  I see the Progressive* state flexing its muscles and going into overdrive to curtail our liberty.  I am expecting an attempt to use the vaccine to implement Revelation 13:17.

(Rev 13:17 KJV) And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
We are already hearing and seeing it.  Qantas Airline has announced it will require proof of vaccination in order to fly internationally.  American corporations have received the green light to fire people who don’t get the vaccine.  There are many voices out there trying to bring all American to heel.  If America goes, so goes the world.

Even if the vaccine does not become the mark of the Beast there is plenty of clear evidence that the new administration and its handlers are going to do everything they can to make prosperity and liberty words of the past.  Their desire is to tax the middle class out of existence and get everyone on the government dole.  They want to disarm us.  They are already well on their way to brainwashing our children.  The future is glum if you are an optimist and devastating if you are paying attention.

To be concluded...
