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 2022-065: Setting an Example

It is frightening watching what is happening in Canada.  No, I am not worried about being attacked or invaded by Canadian truckers.  I am concerned that the Proregressives* in the United States are watching the totalitarian actions of Justin Trudeau and licking their chops in anticipation.  If he can pull martial law in Canada then they figure they can do it here.  

I don’t know if Americans understand the fact that a prime minister under a parliamentary system is a different animal than the president of our ex-republic.  Biden is elected for four years.  He can be removed by impeachment but the process is so difficult and time consuming that the chances are almost nil.  Trudeau could be gone this afternoon if Parliament had the desire to do anything about him.  All it takes is a vote of no confidence and he is out.

So far the members of parliament seem to be trying to decide whether they want a position in the secret police or the regulators of banks.  Their lack of action is a mystery but a dangerous example for our country.  It does not bode well for our future.

Equally scary is the fact that most Americans don’t even seem to be aware of the danger.  We have fallen so far that as long as they can get their favorite shows on the internet connection of choice and the supply chain keeps supplying beer and potato chips then all is well in the world.  You may not have noticed but it is the dandelions sticking their heads up that need to worry about the lawn mower, not the worms crawling in the dirt.

Pray for Canada.  Pray for the United States.  Speak up if you get a chance and vote in the primaries on the chance that it will make a difference.
