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 2021-113: Non-Partial Justice

In reading through Exodus I came across an important reminder of the difference between God’s idea of justice and the Progressives* of today,

(Exo 23:2-3 NAS77) "You shall not follow a multitude in doing evil, nor shall you testify in a dispute so as to turn aside after a multitude in order to pervert justice; nor shall you be partial to a poor man in his dispute.
Christians are to be different in many ways and we need to remember that it also means in how we deal with the poor around us.  While the Bible is full of condemnation of the oppression of the poor it also talks about the poor oppressing other poor and over all is a demand for a justice that is not based on your victim quotient.  

Biblical justice is not based on the qualities of the individual.  Those are always variables.  Variables need to be considered but the justice of God is based on the character of God, which never changes.  Justice is rooted in objective truth not subjective conditions.  Thus, Biblical justice is not based on social justice.  That is a term created by the Progressives* to make it possible to tweak any situation to provide the outcome they want.  It is the difference between equal opportunity and equal outcome.  

Our Progressive* overlords are trying to divide us based on class, race, religion, gender and brand of perversion.  If you listen to them and then make your decisions you will be the manipulated fool.  You will be the person described in the first part of the verse.

There is a reason that the statue of justice is wearing a blindfold.
