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 2022-170: Who Is Next?

I have begun reading The Gulag Archipelago by Solzhenitsyn.  I keep reading quotes without any kind of page reference so I am curious what I will find.  The first 100 pages are enough that if this book were required reading in high school we would be running out of socialists quickly.  The scariest part is that I can see the Proregressives* running our administrative state are heading down this same path.  The arrest and incarceration of the January 6 citizens is a good example of what Stalin’s era would look like from the outside.  Like then we now don’t know what is going on behind the doors.

Between reading the first chapters and being in the process of reading The Brothers Karamazov I have gotten the feeling that even in the worst of times there were peasants and working people who were able to plan and work hard to achieve financial success.  The difference is that the Soviets had a religious belief, communism, that demanded that anyone being successful be destroyed.  That seems to be the goal of the Biden handlers.  At this point they are using regulation and executive orders to destroy our economy and the freedom of action that comes with it.  The big question is whether they will ever be able to move to the deluge of midnight arrests by armed thugs.  

Will Americans put up with massive arrests on trumped up charges?  I think that much of it depends on whether the elites get in a hurry or are willing to lull the population to sleep.  We see the way in which they like to arrest unarmed elderly men.  They took Roger Stone in the early hours from his home and Peter Navarro in an airport.  What would have happened in the airport if an angry crowd had surrounded the “law” and scared them spitless?  It may come to that for us.

This is also why they want to Balkanize us.  They want us divided because as long as we are “one nation under God” they will be doomed to defeat.  It brings to mind a quote attributed to Benjamin Franklin, “We must hang together or we will hang separately.”

Hang together people.  Remember that history is written by the victors and we want to be those authors.
