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 2021-227: New Improved GMO

The vaccines being pedaled as your salvation are just another example of GMO.  What is interesting is that the same people who are horrified at GMO corn in the flakes are quite alright with a GMO vaccine in their cells.

The concern over GMO is legitimate.  Scientists take genetic material from one form of life and introduce it into another and see what comes out.  I understand that they cross over the kingdom divides and will even put animal genes into vegetables.  You can see the attraction.  What if you could develop a tomato plant that the insects would not eat?  What if you could get fish that produced bacon?  How about mashed potatoes that don’t make you fat?

The problem is ethics.  The age old question is, “Just because you can, should you?”  Scientists have proven that they are no better than the politicians or business tycoons who are only out for fame and fortune.  The distorted research and outright lies of the scientists in the field of climate research is notorious.  The deception involved in the panic over a virus is criminal.  I am coming to believe that the testimonies of scientists are on the same level as the experts who sell cures on late night TV.

Now we have the vaccines.  There are many reports of the dangerous side effects and deaths related to the vaccines.  The censors of the government, news media and social media are doing everything they can to silence any dissenting voices to the accepted mantra.  My guess is that the side effects are like the virus, some people will have a terrible response but for most people neither presents any big threat.  It is like Russian roulette.  The deaths from the virus are exaggerated for political reasons.  The dangers are downplayed for the same reasons.  It is a sad statement about the rich and powerful.  

Read between the lines.  Do some simple math about the numbers.  Remember that neither side on the issue is to be taken as gospel.  Be responsible, if they will let you.
