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 2022-172: Headlines: What’s for Dinner?

One of the headlines a few days ago was about a Norwegian feminist who has been threatened with jail for saying men can’t be lesbians.   We have also been hearing about some liberal who retweeted a joke that was off-color, but even worse was not politically correct and approved by the commissars.  He has been put on leave for a month without pay if my memory serves me correctly.  Then another liberal who made a fuss because he was not punished enough was fired.  What we are seeing is the left eating its own.

This is just the beginning.  If you have read anything about the Russian Revolution and the take over of the Bolsheviks then you have read about how they had waves of executions.  They killed a lot of peasants and people who were standing on the wrong corner when they needed to arrest someone but they also made it a habit of executing last week’s heros.  It is what they do.  As the disciples of Stalin strengthen their grip on American culture you can expect to see more of it.

Before you get to excited remember that the Norwegian is just an hors d’oeuvre.  The hack journalists are just side dishes. We are the main course.  Keep in mind that they will be coming for us.  They don’t really care if anyone is guilty of anything or not.  They don’t have a quota in mind.  The purpose of it will be political terrorism.  They want to cripple us with fear.  They want to condition us to be always looking over our shoulder or going for a walk in the park if we want to talk politics.  

If you are a Christian then start reminding yourself that you are on God’s side.  Usually He will shelter us from the worst but when He allows us to suffer He will also be there to hold us up.  If you are not a believer then look deep down inside and find a foundation you can stand on when the going gets tough.  It may be something like a belief in the rule of law or the Constitution.  It could be family.  It needs to be something worth suffering for and even dying for.

Stand tall and speak up.  Vote and pray.  If all you can do is think good thoughts, then think good thoughts.
