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 2022-192: Hang It

I put out my flag today.  I had a moment of wondering if I should bother.  The way things are going you wonder if we will soon need one with fewer stars.  The Progressives* are out to destroy the country by aggressive acts of power usurpation which destroy our liberties and opportunities.  Of the three branches of the federal government only the Supreme Court has any glimmer of being on the side of historic America and that is an undependable majority when you consider how Roberts waffles and weaves.

I put my flag out today.  Ultimately I am an American and historically I am proud of that.  It was, of course, only an act of God that had me born here instead of a refugee camp somewhere in the third world.  Even then I could have emigrated and become an American.  I am grateful.  We have our problems but if there were a balance of history we would be overwhelmingly in the good guy column.  The only thing that would keep you from believing that is believing the lies that are being perpetuated by our elites.  

I put my flag out today.  It is a sign of hope for the future.  It is an expression of hope in the American people, the silent masses.  We could take that phrase from the Statue of Liberty, “huddled masses yearning to breathe free,” and apply it to the workers and families that now live here.  Ultimately my hope is based on a belief that God is not through with us yet.  It is time to remind ourselves of the promise given to ancient Israel,

(2Ch 7:14 KJV)  If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
We are not Israel but the principle remains the same.  Keep in mind the key parts we don’t like to remember:  humbling ourselves and turning from our evil ways.

As you put out your flag remember that there is hope.
