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 2022-221: The Game of Law

More and more Americans are asking what kind of games the Proregressives* are playing with out legal system.  We have watched cities burn with few arrests and those arrested turned loose.  We have read about criminals arrested with a huge load of illegal drugs and they walk free.  Recently we had some of Stephen Colbert’s staff were wandering around the capital unescorted after hours.  It is called trespass.  They were out on the street again shortly.  Those arrested for trespass on January 6 are still in jail a year and a half later.  Their big crime was they were Trump supporters.  It makes a difference.

Ths kind of thing is another example of how the elites are applying the values of the Soviet to the judicial system of the United States.  Solzhenitsyn saw the same thing going on in the prison system of Communist Russia.  There were at least two types of trial.  One trial was criminal and the other was political.

“Nor had the thieves ever been put through the same kind of interrogation.  Their entire interrogation had consisted of two sessions, an easy trial, and an easy sentence, and they wouldn’t have to serve it out.  They would be released ahead of time:  either they would be amnestied or else they would simply escape....  And he was supported in this pride by all the chiefs in blue shoulder boards and blue piping.  ‘Oh, that’s nothing.  Even though you’re a bandit and a murderer, you are not a traitor of the Motherland, you are one of our own people; you will reform.’”  (Emphasis in original) p. 505
Does this sound like what is going on in our courts?  It should.  Everything we see happening is designed to bring fear to the streets and terrorize the citizens into subjects.

Be aware.
