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 2021-261: Bell Bottoms and Tattoos

The mask was bad enough but the jab is a real disaster.  The difference is the same as between bell bottoms and tattoos.

I never did hate bell bottoms.  I thought they were cool even if I didn’t have the body type that made them look good.  The closest I came to wearing them was the slightly flared styles that were all you could get in my price range and waist size.  For the purposes of discussion let me hypothesize that I had a closet full of the various degrees of bell.  Suddenly style change.  I can’t remember what came next but if I want to be cool all I have to do is empty my closet and hit the mall.

Tattoos are a little different.  Although I understand there are ways to remove them I have not heard a lot of rave reviews of the results.  Tattoos are forever.  Let’s say you have your current girlfriend’s name, Sophia, tattooed across your chest.  Sophia finally wises up and moves on to someone with a real job.  After you get over the heartbreak you start dating Angela.  Now you have a problem.  Sophia is forever.  Or assume you stay with Sophia but after a few years your manly chest starts to sag.  Not a pretty sight.

So.  A mask you can put on and take off.  When I went to the doctor the other day I had to get one to get through the obstacles.  When I started to leave I whipped it off and went about my business.  Not so with the experimental chemicals they want to inject in your body.  This is a total experiment.  The drug messes with your DNA and the changes won’t just go away.  At this point we know there are problems with the heart and with blood clots.  We have miscarriages and who knows how many other complications.  I think that everyone admits the heart problems that develop in young men, and from what I read the effects stay with you the rest of your life.

In the midst of all this keep in mind that we are dealing with nothing more than a different version of the flu.  They say that people die.  True.  They also die of the annual flu.  I urge you before you surrender to your millennial children urging you to be immunized that you think seriously about the long term effects.  And keep in mind that if the cure kills you they stand to inherit your estate, not that I am implying ulterior motives.

  1. All hope is lost, because most people are idiots.

    1. I would agree with you but I don't think that is a new phenomenon. Didn't George Carlton say something like remembering that half the people are below average?

      Grace and peace


Comments are welcome. Feel free to agree or disagree but keep it clean, courteous and short. I heard some shorthand on a podcast: TLDR, Too long, didn't read.
