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 2022-255: Fertilizer of Fear

We need to be careful about living in fear.  It is the goal of the disguised Marxists who want to become our overlords.  One of their strongest weapons is fear.  Fear will keep us silent.  Fear will keep us sitting down.  Fear will keep us at home.  It works.  All you need to do is look at how a small cadre of Bolsheviks were able to bring the entire Russian nation to its knees.

Take the fear of Covid and the fear of the jab.  The first couple of weeks with the shrieking of the CDC and media it was natural to feel some genuine concern.  The unknown is fertilizer for our fear.

In neither case was there any reason to panic or do more than take precautions.  The most effective barrier against the virus was a healthy immune system based good genes and a reasonable life style.  The second was simply washing your hands.  

Then we have the chemicals being injected into people thinking they are real, researched and tested medications.  Sorry to say none of that was the case.  Politics and money played a bigger role than any research that might have been done.  Just the speed of the production should tell you that the cure might be worse than the disease.  My personal opinion is that the cures are more dangerous than the problem.  I don’t base that on full scale research but neither did the drug companies.  At least I observed and sought truth which puts me ahead of them in my insight.

Yes, people died.  Now the death rates are up as a result of the poison being pumped into people.  In the midst of the concern keep in mind that the statistics are just statistics.  A 300% increase in a certain cause of death is a genuine statement about the “vaccine” but in the scope of 350,000,000 Americans it is a blip that should not keep you from living free of fear.

The same goes for the IRS weaponizing.  Yes, they will double their size but when you consider the quality of the recruits you might relax a little.  If you are one of the targets it sucks to be you but the chances of your life being ruined are nothing to stay awake over.

Keep a perspective.  Understand statistics.  A 300% increase can be a description of 1 case becoming 4.  It doesn’t mean you need to stay home and quiver.  Consider the sudden deaths of athletes in top physical shape, the sudden announcement of a new condition called Sudden Adult Death Syndrom, an upsurge of doctors going to that great operating room in the sky.  It would seem there is much to worry about.

But what do they all have in common?  It is safe to say that most were vaccinated but why them and not millions of others?  Did they all toke weed?  Were they smokers or drinkers?  Did they consume too much tofu or sushi?  Did they pick their nose as a child?  No one is asking.

Another way to avoid the fear is to have a genuine faith in Jesus.  It may not keep you alive but it will remove the fear of the grave that seems to cripple so many non-believers and people who claim to be believers.

As my son said when he was in college and going in to have a brain tumor removed, “What is there to worry about?  If I die I get to be with Jesus and I don’t have to take the final.”
