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 2021-014: The Big If

It would be a terrible thing if a bunch of Trump supporters broke into the capitol and attacked the police.

The big word in that sentence is “if”.  The problem is that with the Fake News reporting, Social media censoring, and Rinos cooperating, we may never know what really happened in D.C.  Violence is not in character for Trump Supporters.  For whom would it be consistent?  Antifa and BLM.  So whom do we see leading the charge and breaking windows?  Could that be Antifa goons we see in the photos and videos?  You can find them if you look.  Evidently the media doesn’t look.

The rot in the republic is deep and pervasive.  I have not bothered following all the Fake News but I have not seen any evidence of looting, arson and mayhem that are a part of what is called “mostly peaceful protest”.  Instead I see a few people wandering around like someone left the door open to Disneyland.

We had at least one Trump supporter killed in the confusion.  Where are the videos showing this happening?  Was it the police or a closet Antifa commando who did the deed?  Where is the outcry about police brutality?  Was she beating up an old Biden supporter?  Did she have a flaming bottle full of gas in her hand?  Was her big crime a MAGA hat?

A lot of questions that will not be answered.  Even if I hear about the answers I will keep my hat of scepticism on because I don’t expect to get clarification on the “if”.

  1. No, truth is something to be buried these days.

    1. And always remember to shoot the messenger.

      Grace and peace
