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 2022-166: When the Skinny Lady Sings

If you don’t believe that the 2020 election was stolen by illegal actions then I am wondering if there is any hope for you.  Perhaps it could be a litmus test in deciding who has the right to vote.  Maybe a constitutional amendment requiring belief in the fraud would be in order.  To be fair we need to realize how ignorant the general public really is.  Ask a middle school student what they would do about the problems in the economy and they say, “Print more money.”  I know this because I used to ask them questions like that.  

Or take something that is hard to miss if you have ever been on a beach with a clear view of the horizon or in an airplane on a cloudless day, the earth is round.  And yet Forbes tells us,

“Millennials in America sometimes get a bad reputation, this time for good reason. A recent survey found that just 66 percent of young adults aged 18 to 24 years old have ‘always believed the world is round.’"
I didn’t read the whole article.  Maybe there is some mitigating data.  I doubt it.  I could go on but I digress from my concern about our culture in the wake of the 2020 election.

I have been a part of conversations where people are beginning to believe that the only way we can defeat the cheaters is to start cheating ourselves.  I have heard it said we will never win another election unless we learn to ballot harvest, pay off poll workers and generally get involved in the perfection of the party machine that has taken place.

Personally I reject that tactic.  I understand the point.  When I have played games with people who cheat I have made sure I don’t join their games again.  When I shop in a store or buy a product that is dishonest I find other places to shop and products to buy.  I may say something but I generally walk away.  I can’t do that with my country.  

We cannot adopt their way of doing things.  If we do then we deserve to lose.  We might win a battle but we would lose the war.  We need to win the war.  If we are simply going to become Proregressive* Lite, then why bother fighting.  Join.

We need to move forward the way real Americans have always done it.  We need to stand tall.  We need to speak up.  We need to use the courts and the legal system.  Lawsuits and suing for damages goes both ways.  We need to move forward as Christians.  If you are not a Christian then at least admit you need to take the moral high road.  

We are on the side of justice, real justice, and truth.  Don’t give up until the skinny lady sings.  It may be that the fat lady will be almost starving before we get to the point of victory.
