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 2021-267: Define “Americans”

I always like it when someone with a following expresses what I have been saying to the few ears I touch.  One of the questions I have been asking people is, “How many of the ‘Americans’ that are trapped in Afghanistan are patriotic Americans and how many are people who were born in that country and still consider it home?”  It makes a difference.  An article at American Greatness goes into it a bit deeper.

If we have people who are American citizens and believe in the principles of the Constitution who just happened to be in Afghanistan at the wrong time, they deserve to be rescued.  If it is someone who is in an unending visit with family, not so much.  I don’t think we should be risking the lives of our soldiers for people who hate America.

There are many issues involved in this fiasco.  I am with the many voices saying that this was planned out to happen this way.  

The adventure continues.
