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 2022-272: Venezuelan Gifthorse

Have you seen the reports that Venezuela is emptying their prisons and sending the inmates to infiltrate the United States.  To borrow from Princess Bride, you say that as if it was a bad thing.  Think about it.  It is possible that the kind of people in a Venezuela prison might be the kind of people we want.  They might be criminals but they might also just be political prisoners who spoke up for freedom and were jailed for their boldness.

It could be that we might send recruiting teams to the prisons of the Socialist countries and offer to ransom their enemies.  Maybe Texas could talk the federal government into releasing some of their political prisoners to the Lone Star State.
