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 2022-260: Dating the Straw

We like dates.  They give us a feeling of security and make things clear, even when they shouldn’t.  We just went through the anniversary of 9/11.  It is really one of many steps in a progression, but it is the one we look at.  I look at it as a declaration of war on America.  This is true if you are a conspiracy nut, a minion of the deep state or simply a patriotic American.

It is true if George Bush was in on the whole plan.

It is true if it was simply Islam attacking the great Satan.

There have been many steps moving toward that moment.  There have been many since.  There are definite parallels with the American Revolution.  There we look at July 4, 1776.  It was the day of official declaration.  It was just formalizing what had been going on for a long time.  Are you aware that the Battles of Lexington and Concord were a year before the Declaration of Independence?  Are you aware that a colonial army had laid seige to Boston and driven the British out before the Declaration?  9/11 was a bit like July 4.

It is also a question of whom was declaring war.  Obviously it was part of the Jihad against the West that Islam has been pursuing for 1,300 years.  It was also cheered on by the people who are now trying to bring the republic to an end.  The Progressive Left is marching hand in glove with Islam to weaken and destroy the United States as a land that gives the common man a chance at prosperity and security.  The Progressive war goes back at least as far as Woodrow Wilson and some take it back to the Civil War.  The war of the elites against the common man goes back to the first guy with big muscles.

What is the key date for the demise of our Liberty?  Was it the election of FDR?  Was it the fraud that brought in Joe Biden?  Is the straw that broke the camel’s back still ahead of us?  I think we still have time to recover but I am not sure we have the will or the moral base that we need.

It is going to be interesting.
