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 2021-023: The Prophets’s Hat: A Post Trump World, Part 3 of 3

Europe will be losing the shield it had in America.  Trump had forced them to grow up a little.  NATO members were beginning to pull their own weight.  Poland has made great strides.  The problem is that without an American Presidential backbone, Russia will again begin to flex its muscles.  When the Progressives* make their move to shut down American energy production, Russia will be in a place to play the oil card again.  That will give them the finances to rearm and the leverage over Europe that may make it unnecessary.  

We also forget that things are not going to go smoothly here in the United States.  Will the fascists in government push too fast and set off a rebellion?  Will they take their time and make people think the black helicopters will only be coming for their neighbors?  Will the 50 states remained united or will there be so much power grabbing that things start to come apart?  It is anyone’s guess.  

One of the topics that keeps coming up goes by various names.  We hear of secession.  Some talk of civil war.  The Declaration of Independence calls it separation.  When the media decided to start labeling the Republicans with red and the Democrats in blue it allowed for all kinds of creative and informative maps.  We have long heard about “fly-over country” and the “left coast”.  Will the areas of the country not dominated by liberal, cesspool cities submit quietly to the tyranny of the socialists?  Will the South rise again?

It does not promise to be a peaceful time ahead.  We will learn a lot about how things are going in the next few months.

  1. Overall--a good time to get right with the Lord.

    1. Of course it is always a good time for that. My wife came to the Lord because of the book, The Late-Great Planet Earth. Fear worked for her. Maybe it will bring revival now.

      Grace and peace
