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 2021-264: We Are Not Alone

Americans tend to be self-centered when it comes to world events.  Part of that is our ethos but a bigger part is the refusal of the so-called news media to keep us up to date on the world.  We hear about concerns over the feds printing money to solve our problems.  What makes this a bigger coming catastrophe is that we are not alone.  From the City Journal, linked from Instapundit, we read,

“The economy continues to chug along, as the money printer in Canberra churns out tens of billions in handouts. The open federal money tap has allowed state governments, mostly in the hands of the opposition center-Left, to go to extremes;...”
So Australia is going down the same path we follow.  They are destined for the effects of extreme inflation not only because of what we are doing but also because they have joined in the chorus.  It makes me wonder how many other countries are singing the siren song of the printing press.  We will never know until it is too late.

As the people searching for extra-terrestrial life say, “We are not alone.”
