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 2021-076: Nuremberg II

Will there be Nuremberg trials after all this nonsense is over?  The pictures of our capital are embarrassing and frightening.  They embarrass me as an American.  What happened to a government that we have the right to petition.  Why are they so much more important to keep safe than the citizens of all the cities destroyed by Antifa and BLM?  Barbed wire?  Around all of the government buildings?  Have you seen how extended this barrier is?  I thought it was just around one or two building but it goes on and on.

What frightens me is the willingness to bring soldiers into our streets when there is nothing going on more than breaking and entering and trespass.  Nothing if you ignore the unarmed women shot for being in the wrong place.  What happened to all the outrage about police brutality?  Why is this officer not named?  I understand that we can’t even find out which of the many police forces he was part of.  

And then you have the vetting of the National Guard.  Were they really asked if they had voted for Trump?  Why did their officers put up with it?  At least some of the governors called their troops home.  Of course the People’s Republic of Massachusetts sent more.  One of the strengths of our military has been that they do not swear allegiance to a person or a political party.  They are sworn to the Constitution and the country.  The Progressives* seem to be changing that.  It sounds like they are trying to turn us into a Banana Republic.

Will anyone survive to hold the trials.  These people are doing everything they can to incite a violent response.  They are trying for Civil War.  They don’t care what the result are.  You have known and watched people who would destroy something if they cannot have it for themselves.  Picture children arguing over a toy.  Observe divorcing parents using the children to get at each other.  Traditional conservatives do not want civil war.  We paid attention in history and we know how that works out.

We were founded on the rule of law.  That is changing.  We are moving toward Star Chambers and Kangaroo Courts?  You may not be familiar with the term “Star Chamber”.  It goes back to England in the 1600's.  It was a secret court controlled by the king.  People would be arrested and dragged in for trial.  There was no record and no due process.  Generally if you were forced through the doors, you were never heard from again.  The First Amendment Encyclopedia defines it this way:

“The term star chamber refers pejoratively to any secret or closed meeting held by a judicial or executive body, or to a court proceeding that seems grossly unfair or that is used to persecute an individual.”
This is why the Sixth Amendment starts with these words,
“In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial,...”
Take the positive view.  Assume that the rule of law is reestablished.  Assume that the abuses going on come before a legitimate court.  Dream of Nuremberg II.  

Who will be on trial?

Who will judge?

Will the excuse, “I was only following orders” be accepted then?

Either the Progressive* forces will triumph and all dissent will be stamped out or there will be a different group of individuals and cabals that will have to answer to their actions.

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

  1. I'm glad it's up to the Lord. I'd be too inclined to give them the war they seem to want.

    1. I have seen the mountains of WV. It is a natural for resistance.

      Grace and peace

  2. Nuremberg II, what an exquisite thought! Like a complete look at Pelosi's actions, emails, etc. along with others of her ilk, leading up to Jan 6? Read all 3 chapters of Habbukkuk. There is nothing new under the sun. What is happening is no surprise to the Lord.

    1. There is some comfort in knowing that God does not rely on CNN.

      Grace and peace


Comments are welcome. Feel free to agree or disagree but keep it clean, courteous and short. I heard some shorthand on a podcast: TLDR, Too long, didn't read.
