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 2021-282: Reaching Utopia

The Republic is almost finished and it is the result of being too successful.  The American experiment in self government had the ideal expressed in the Declaration of Independence:  All men are created equal.  Everyone knew that it was an ideal but our society kept working toward that goal.  The right to vote was steadily expanded.  Things like the Homestead Act put owning property in reach of anyone willing to work.  The goal of the civil rights crusade was to do away with discrimination for illegitimate reasons.  

Just when we seemed to be reaching Utopia the Proregressives* started a counter crusade.  These are the people who cannot stand to see masses of people enjoying life and having opportunity to follow their dreams.  You have people like the Mayor who’s name shall not be mentioned who believe it is their job to tell you how large a soda you can buy.  You have government agencies that work overtime to take all the risk out of risky activities that are so much fun that many people pursue them.  It has become so absurd that in Oregon the governor is saying that it is not necessary to be able to read, write or do basic math to graduate from high school.  Standards might damage someone’s feeling of self worth.  Welcome to the Proregressive* dream of Utopia.

And people support this kind of thinking.  When I see polls about support for President Biden, I am not surprised that his numbers are bad.  What I am shocked about is that he has any support.  I did not know there were that many people in the country who needed help deciding which foot the left shoe goes on.

I am beginning to think that the human race is not qualified for equality.   

One of the big puzzles to me is how slavery existed so long.  When you consider the number of slaves in some ancient cultures it seems strange that they were content to stay in that condition.  You may have heard of the Stockholm Syndrom.  Simply put, victims go through a mental change that causes them to develop an attachment to their abusers.  I think a similar thing happened to many slaves.  They accepted their role and felt like it was the way things should be.

I am afraid that the people who are natural born slaves are reproducing to the point where we don’t have enough worker bees to keep the Republic going.

Pray that I am wrong.
