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 2021-246: Reminders: #5, No They Don’t Have Good Intentions

There are certain topics I have written about.  They are worth repeating.  I need to revisit them to refresh my memory and enhance my thinking.  Others need to be reminded.  There is a constant bombardment of ideas that clutter our minds.

The news media lies to us on a regular basis.  The Government spies on us, ignores the rioting by anarchists, arrests people invited into the capital building and keeps them in solitary confinement for what is a misdemeanor at worst, the monopolies in social media censor anything that might be construed as pro-American and the beat goes on.  I am getting used to this insanity.  What I am not getting used to is the people of good will who say stupid things like, “They mean well.”

I am sorry, that is not an option.  When people at the CDC deliberately change the way deaths are reported and inflate the statistics repeatedly to back a leftist agenda, it is not just trying to help us.  I have said it before, I am saying it again.  You have three choices.  They are one of three things, or maybe all three.  Time to revisit the three choices about the left:  Ignorant, Evil, or Stupid.

I think it is clear they are not ignorant.  They see the data.  They know the facts.  They need to know what is true to lie so consistently.  

They may be stupid.  In our current climate of affirmative action and cancel culture it is possible to get a degree from what used to be prestigious universities and not be sure which foot the shoe goes on.  As a former teacher I can testify to the lack of intelligence in many of the college graduates.  When I got into teaching you were required to pass an examination called the CBEST.  It consisted of writing an essay, doing math problems with only a few as advanced as algebra and answer questions about something you just read.  Any 10th grade student should be able to pass it.  I think most of my 8th graders could have done so.  Twenty percent of the college graduates who took the test failed.  So yes, it could be that they are stupid, after all people still watch CNN.

I personally think it is the third choice.  They are evil.  They have sold their souls to the devil.  I know they don’t think of it that way but how do you explain things like the journalist who went to the Soviet Union while Stalin was starving the Ukrainians and came back praising the system?  How do you explain the publishing industry that gave him awards for his awesome journalism?  How do you explain thousands of people totally violating their oaths, the law and the trust of their fellow Americans to steal an election for Joe Biden and another group who claim there is no evidence of fraud?  How do you explain judges who say it is acceptable for young children to surgically and chemically alter their bodies when they aren’t old enough to buy a beer?  It isn’t ignorance.  It isn’t stupid.  It is evil.

So get over it.  They are not nice people who have different ideas.  They are evil people making evil choices.
