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 2021-285: Definition Day

I would like to celebrate Indigenous People’s Day (IPD) but the phrase is as meaningless as “Native American.”  I might as well celebrate Day of the Month Day.  All days are days of the month.  I guess it is kind of like Children’s Day.

In case you have not thought this through, let me repeat myself a bit.  If you have thought it through then take a deep breath.  Take the term, “Native American.”  Unless you want to define “native” as “person of an inferior and primitive culture” then you have to accept that it simply means “person who was born in an area.”  By that simple definition I am a Native American.  I was born here.  My guess is that you were too.  In this sense there are only two kinds of Americans, native and naturalized.

The same goes with “Indigenous”.  According to my computer dictionary the word means “originating or occurring naturally in a particular place.”  If I remember my seventh grade world history textbook correctly, the first human beings arrived in North America around 10,000 B.C.  That means that they were no more indigenous than the Pilgrims.  They just migrated earlier.  The only thing that you can claim is indigenous is mold and fungus.  

The purpose of IPD is to undermine and destroy the contributions of Europe and Christianity to the progress of the world.  It also it an anti-white thrust but that is really just a smoke screen for the true goals.  

So we need to remember something that was actually significant in influencing the progress and well being of the world.  Colombus opened up the New World to the energy of Europe.  The so called indigenous people had not even figured out that the wheels on the toys of their children could be used to get more corn to market without slave labor.  They had not even invented a shovel.  They sat on a world of wealth and were still acting like Proregressive* by trying to kill anyone who disagreed with them and steal anything that said “Shiny”.  

Happy Columbus Day.
