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 2022-151: Buddy, Got a Light?

What will be the match that lights the dynamite?

We watched as the sitting president of the United States was banned from the public square.  We remained calm.  We moved from blue to red.

We watched thugs destroying our cities and being turned loose without even a slap on the hand.  We remained calm.  We stopped shopping downtown.

We saw a befuddled old man who never left his basement become the most popular president in history.  We remained calm.  We checked our boxes of projectiles.

We saw citizens being incarcerated for a year for the crime of misdemeanor trespass on January 6.  We remained calm.  We cleaned our personal protection devices.

Some day we will not remain calm.  What will it take?

Will it be the storm troopers showing up in your neighborhood to enforce the fascist speech codes proclaimed by the Ministry of Truth?  Or perhaps when they nail shut the doors of your church because the pastor mentioned the Bible’s position on something like homosexuality?

Will it be the Famine Prevention Police who come to search your house to see if you are hoarding food?

Will it go south when you return home and find out that the local police have raided your home and confiscated all your firearms and ammunition for the common safety?

What will it take to light the match?  I have two hopes.  I hope I never find out.  I hope that if it comes I will be more than a political couch potato.

Speak up while you can.
