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 2021-104: Realize the Dream

I keep coming across phrases and comments that run in the direction of the America we knew is no more.  The inference is that we can never get it back.  It might be a good idea to take that to heart and build on it.  I don’t want to go back to America as we knew it.  I don’t want to go back to a country where the Progressives have been undermining the Constitution, infiltrating the churches, propagandizing the media and making mush out of children’s minds.  I don’t want to go back to a country where the Progressives have been cheating on elections for years.  The only difference is that this time they had to overcome Trump and so they became obvious.  

We have been living in a Fantasyland.  

I don’t want to go back.  I want to go forward.  I want to go forward by abandoning all the false trails that have been laid by the Progressives*.  The first attempts at building heavier than air machines focused on the fact that birds flapped their wings.  You have probably seen the old movies of people strapping on wings or “airplanes” that flapped.  If the inventors had not switched gears and looked at the shape of the wing we would still be stuck on the ground.  Sometimes you have to ditch the phoney science to move into the real science.  The same applies to how society works.

Socialism has been tried by many people.  It eventually becomes communism.  It was tried by the Pilgrims.  It was tried by the Jamestown Colony.  Neither one was able to feed themselves until they went back to personal property and individual responsibility.  It fails.  It destroys.  It kills, people and dreams.  There is no way it can be reformed, it must be discarded.  

I want to see the republic rebuilt as the Founders dreamed it could be.  Actually we need to go beyond their dreams because they did not dream big enough.  Don’t be afraid to change the clock.  If it is really 6:00 and your clock says 12:00 you can turn it either way on an analog but on a digital you may need to go forward to make it accurate.  I know when I set my alarm I need to be careful to check if it is AM or PM.

Maybe the goal should be America as we thought it was rather than as it was.  Dream big and move forward.
