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 2021-206: Snowflake Mush

I talk about the mush that fills snowflakes minds.  One of the reasons the term mush is so appropriate is that it is essentially a fluid like suspension that will fill every vacant space.  Hard facts have hard edges and don’t tend to conform to preformed brains.  

I tend to think that the snowflake mind is normal for human beings or at least it is easy to create.  While I believe that every human is born with potential, even the birth quotient varies with the individual based on heredity and, believe it or not, the outside influences on the developing child in the womb.  There is a reason we talked to our children before they were born.  They could hear us and, although they didn’t understand the words, they could grow in the basting of human contact.  While all have potential, it is different with each person.  Some have minds and personalities that are open to manipulation.  Most humans crave acceptance and have a desire to belong.  This will cause them to resist thinking things through.  Some grow out of it, others are stunted early.

I tend to be a skeptic when it comes to the ability of the masses to think and process.  It takes work and most of us are a bit lazy.  It would do us a service to keep in mind that sloth is one of the seven deadly sins and is repeatedly condemned in the book of Proverbs.  Those who have the ability to think need to look at it as a responsibility.  Those who understand the standards of God need to see them as good for everyone, even those who reject them.

If you are a mush headed snowflake, I lost you a long time ago.  The rest of us need to understand that the snowflakes need our guidance.  I challenge you to look for opportunities to stand up and be counted because the society they will allow is not one that will put up with their foolishness.
